Hunter Biden Sues IRS
The suit alleges unlawful release of his taxes
Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, sued the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Monday, alleging unlawful disclosure of his taxes by whistleblowers who work for the U.S. tax agency.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, focused on statements made by IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler in media interviews amid a long-running investigation by House of Representatives Republicans into the younger Biden's taxes and business dealings.
Hunter Biden, 53, is at the center of a political maelstrom, as House Republicans mount an impeachment inquiry against his father focused on alleged ties between his business practices and his father's policies during his father's tenure as vice president from 2009 to 2017. They have so far presented no evidence showing that the elder Biden profited from his son's businesses. The White House has denied any wrongdoing.
