Mired in scandal, Hunter Biden is striking back with a lawsuit against the IRS, who he alleges, among other offenses, sought to embarrass him.
According to Fox:
Hunter Biden's attorneys filed a lawsuit against the IRS on Monday, alleging that agents have "targeted and sought to embarrass" the president's son.
Biden's Monday morning filing cites two major examples in IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, two whistleblowers who claimed the IRS mishandled aspects of its investigation into Biden.
Biden's lawsuit seeks for the court to declare that the IRS "willfully, knowingly, and/or by gross negligence, unlawfully disclosed Mr. Biden's confidential tax information."
In addition, Biden is demanding $1,000 in damages for "each and every unauthorized disclosure of his tax returns," including disclosures that happened after the fact.
Back in July, Shapley and Ziegler provided evidence that Hunter received millions of dollars from China, Ukraine, and Romania, and that Joe Biden had knowledge and possible involvement in it. They also testified that they weren’t allowed to follow evidence that could’ve implicated Joe Biden, and that AG Merrick Garland may have perjured himself when he claimed that the U.S. Attorney was advised he had full authority to make criminal referrals.Matt Palumbo is the author of Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers: How the Left Hijacked and Weaponized the Fact-Checking Industry and The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros
