Attorney Mark D. Lytle has confirmed that his client, an IRS criminal supervisory agent, has made legally protected disclosures at the IRS that contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee. Lytle has requested whistleblower privileges for his client and that congressional committees facilitate sharing this information with Congress legally and with the fully informed advice of counsel.
The news has sparked outrage among Republicans, with many calling for further investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden administration’s connection to potentially shady dealings. Former Homeland Security Under Director Michael D. Brown has called for every civil servant who has this kind of information to be afforded every protection available under the law.
Kentucky Rep. James Comer is calling for accountability for anyone in the administration who may be covering up this criminal activity. While Hunter Biden has not been charged with any crimes, the allegations of preferential treatment and politics affecting protocols are a cause for concern. The American people deserve transparency and accountability from their leaders, and we must ensure that the rule of law is upheld.
