First, the stories that whiff around the real topic
Attorney General Merrick Garland is the “senior” Biden official in Hunter Biden IRS whistleblower claim
The New York Post looks into the claim that Merrick Garland shielded Hunter Biden (as proposed in a letter from an IRS whistleblower’s attorney).
Attorney General Merrick Garland is the unnamed official whose sworn testimony to Congress is being challenged in a bombshell letter from an IRS whistleblower’s attorney alleging a cover-up in the Hunter Biden criminal investigation, The Post has learned.
Attorney Mark Lytle wrote Wednesday that the longtime IRS employee wants to provide information to congressional leaders to “contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee” — Garland — and also to detail “preferential treatment” in the criminal probe of the first son.
The whistleblower already made disclosures to the inspectors general of the Treasury and Justice departments.
However, due to a quirk of federal law, he needs congressional approval to more fully describe his allegations to his own lawyers, which he wants to do before testifying to lawmakers.
Garland has repeatedly claimed under oath that Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, a Trump administration holdover recommended in 2017 by the state’s Democratic senators, is able to criminally charge Hunter Biden without the permission of other Justice Department leaders, despite Republicans challenging the factual accuracy of that claim.
Garland in April 2022 told Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) that “there will not be interference of any political or improper kind” in the investigation of Hunter Biden led by Weiss.
“He is the supervisor of this investigation,” Garland said of Weiss, adding that “we put the investigation in the hands of a Trump appointee from the previous administration, who is the US attorney for the district of Delaware, and … you have me as the attorney general, who is committed to the independence of the Justice Department from any influence from the White House in criminal matters.”
In March, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) pressed Garland on whether Weiss was truly able to bring charges without the approval of other Justice Department officials, specifically if the alleged crime occurred outside Delaware.
“In April 2022, you testified to Sen. Hagerty that the Hunter Biden investigation was insulated from political interference because it was assigned, as you just now told me, to the Delaware US Attorney’s Office,” Grassley said at the time.
“However, that could be misleading.
“Without special counsel authority, he could need permission of another US attorney in certain circumstances to bring charges outside the district of Delaware.

Hunter Biden, the crack-crazed nere-do-well, is not the kingpin nor who we should focus upon
We cannot let this become about Hunter Biden’s misactions. Likewise, (even though it is tempting to think about how Garlnd may have perjured himself before Congress) we cannot get our eyes off of the real prize.
We cannot let this be about anything but the Biden crime organization and the “Big Guy” at the top.
IRS whistleblower has told Congress that Hunter Biden probe is being mishandled
ABC News reports in the most obscure means possible on the malfeasance of the Biden regime (or possibly the “Biden syndicate”).
A supervisor at the IRS has told lawmakers that he has information that suggests the Biden administration could be mishandling the investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
In a letter to lawmakers obtained by ABC News, the lawyer for the IRS whistleblower says his client is an IRS criminal supervisory special agent “who has been overseeing the ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020 and would like to make protected whistleblower disclosures to Congress.”
The letter does not name Hunter Biden specifically, but lawmakers have been made aware he is the “high profile, controversial” subject that the lawyer is referring to. In addition, while the letter refers to preferential treatment that Hunter Biden has allegedly received, there are no specific examples provided to support the accusations.
The letter says that “The protected disclosures: (1) contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee, (2) involve failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case, and (3) detail examples of preferential treatment and politics improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected.”
The lawyer for the whistleblower didn’t immediately respond to ABC’s request for comment. A spokesperson for DOJ declined to comment.
The Wall Street Journal first reported news of the letter.
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.), said in a statement.

If this investigation does not look into the impropriety of the Biden family, it misses the mark
The primary focus of this investigation cannot be Hunter. It cannot be the other eleven family members identified by Representative Comer as having received foreign monies. The focus must be on Joe and the entire organization.
Still, one has to wonder whether the Wall Street Journal‘s breaking of this letter was the only reason that ABC News got off of dead center to investigate Hunter.
Ex-top spy admits Hunter Biden laptop letter designed to influence 2020 election, Blinken involved
Just The News explores the admissions of career intelligence officer Michael J. Morell as he admits Anthony Blinken directed the creation of the letter that mislead a national election.
A former acting CIA director has admitted to Congress that he helped organize the letter that falsely portrayed Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation in an effort to influence the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden and that his role was “triggered” by a call from current Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to a letter released Thursday by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan.
The extraordinary admission by career intelligence officer Michael J. Morell provides stunning evidence that the now-infamous letter from 51 security officials in October 2020 was not an organic intelligence community initiative but rather a political dirty trick originating with Blinken and the Biden campaign.
Jordan sent a letter demanding Blinken answer a series of questions about Morell’s stunning testimony, as lawmakers weighed the enormity of America’s top diplomat being willing to accuse a nuclear-armed superpower of interfering in the 2020 election without evidence. That letter included major snippets of Morell’s testimony.
Morell, who retired as deputy CIA director after a long and storied career and served as its acting chief, was on the short list in fall 2020 to be Biden’s CIA director when he became involved in the letter. He ultimately did not receive the job.
In a transcribed interview with the House Judiciary government weaponization subcommittee, Morell admitted he got involved with the letter after a conversation with Blinken and later received a call from the Biden campaign thanking him when Joe Biden used the letter and its false implication to blunt criticism of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings
The transcript of Morell’s interview showed he had no intent to write the statement and that Blinken’s “call triggered” his actions.
The same day Blinken reached out to Morell, an article was published in USA Today alleging that the FBI was looking into the laptop as part of a “disinformation campaign.”
“Morell testified that his communication with you was one of a few communications he had with the Biden campaign, explaining that he also received a call from Steve Ricchetti, Chairman of the Biden campaign, following the October 22 debate to thank him for writing the letter,” Jordan wrote Blinken.

There is a reason that Blinken directed attention away from the laptop. It had nothing to do with Hunter.
Of course, everyone with a brain knows that the only reason Blinken had the letter generated was to win Biden the Oval Office. Likewise, the only reason Blinken is Secretary of State is that he had the letter created.
With that loop closed, we also know that only the brain dead will be voting for Joe. Therefore, I guess Joe can count on swampy Republican votes and Democrats.
Hunter Biden may be living at the White House to evade legal papers from his baby mama
The New York Post slides into the muck of this unseemly story where we might think the “Big Guy” might be hiding little Hunter from having to pay child support. That stands as the least of Joe Biden’s worries here.
Hunter Biden is believed to be hiding out at the White House while his baby mama goes on the warpath.
Lawyers for former stripper Lunden Roberts asked an Arkansas court Friday to jail the first son for failing to fork over his financial records as required in her lawsuit over support payments for their 4-year-old unacknowledged daughter, Navy.
Roberts claims Hunter, 53, is “flaunting the dignity and authority of the court” by failing to provide “one single item or word [of] discovery” and says, “This court should incarcerate the defendant in the Cleburne County Detention Center until he complies with this court’s orders.”
Roberts, 32, had to get a court-ordered paternity test to prove Navy was Hunter’s, and last year Hunter applied to have his monthly support payments reduced.
She also has enlisted Biden nemesis Garrett Ziegler as an expert witness for the trial expected in July.
The 27-year-old former Trump adviser is founder of the nonprofit Marco Polo, which published a 644-page analysis of Hunter’s infamous laptop last year, identifying hundreds of alleged crimes.
Tracking the first son
Ziegler is being sued by Hunter’s “sugar brother,” wealthy Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, for alleged harassment and invasion of privacy.
Morris generously paid off Hunter’s $2.8 million IRS bill, which is part of a federal criminal investigation by the US attorney in Delaware, David Weiss, into the first son’s overseas business dealings.
Things were brought to a head last week when a career IRS criminal supervisory special agent who has been investigating Hunter for three years came forward with claims that federal prosecutors are preventing tax charges from being brought against the president’s son.
“Preferential treatment and politics [are] improperly infecting decisions” in the case, the whistleblower’s attorney, Mark Lytle, alleged in a letter to Democrats and Republicans leading various congressional committees.

One thing Joe really doesn’t want exposed is the money that flows through Hunter and from whom that money flows
Having those money transfers and checks exposed might be impeachment material. However, since the Chinese bank has already provided enough for that, maybe this would be worrying over nothing.
Now for the story that comes closer to the real topic
Closer to the mark: ex-Obama staffer blows whistle on Biden “kickback scheme” after Hunter joined Burisma – “Malfeasance in office”
Fox News explores the report from the former Obama stenographer who witnessed the Biden kickback scheme in action.
A former Obama administration staffer is blowing the whistle on the Biden family’s business dealings, accusing President Biden of being involved in a “kickback scheme” in connection with his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings while he was vice president.
Mike McCormick, a stenographer for the White House for 15 years, told “Fox & Friends First” the FBI has been ignoring his alarms on the matter despite his willingness to testify under oath before the federal grand jury investigating Hunter.
“In February, I went to the FBI and filed one of their tips on their website. If you do that, and you’re lying to them, you go to jail. I’m not lying. I’m telling the truth, and I’m not going to jail,” McCormick said Thursday. “Joe Biden is a criminal. He was conducting malfeasance in office to enrich his family. Jake Sullivan is a conspirator in that, and there’s more… Obama officials involved in it, I believe.”
McCormick, who worked with Biden from 2011 to 2017, detailed a key dialogue involving the vice president, aide Jake Sullivan and the press on Air Force Two before a trip to Kyiv, Ukraine, on April 21, 2014.
Sullivan, who is the current national security adviser, outlined in a White House transcript Biden’s priorities for his trip to the country, which included U.S. investment in the Ukrainian energy sector days after Hunter joined the board of Burisma, according to the New York Post.
Months later, and well after the trip, Congress allocated $50 million to Ukraine’s energy market.
“I’m sitting back there with a tape recorder. Jake Sullivan comes back and somebody asks about fracking. His answer is, well, we’re bringing a lot of American assistance over for fracking. Burisma was the direct beneficiary of that fracking, and that’s what I recorded, and that’s in a White House transcript,” McCormick said.
“In the transcript, you don’t know who Jake Sullivan is. It’s a senior administration official. I’m the witness that says Jake Sullivan is the guy who said it and he should be investigated because at the time Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma and Joe Biden is bringing American taxpayer money to enrich that company and himself and his family,” he continued.
Hunter joined the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm on April 18, just three days before Biden and his team traveled to Kyiv. But that critical piece of the puzzle was not made public until May 12.
McCormick argued the timeline of the events suggests that Biden funneled American money overseas to “enrich” himself and his family, and used his own influence to aid his son’s rookie energy career.
The former stenographer made it clear he wants to present the information under oath before the grand jury in Delaware probing Hunter’s business dealings, which is led by U.S. Attorney David Weiss.

Here is the point where we learn two things
At this point, we learn:
- Whether or not Republicans of any stripe have gonads and
- Whether or not any Democrats have morals remaining in their otherwise mush-filled skulls.
