The IRS has removed the "entire investigative team" from its multi-year tax fraud investigation of Hunter Biden, and a whistleblower who raised concerns about the handling of the case is claiming the move was "clearly retaliatory," according to a Monday report.
Per The New York Post, the whistleblower's attorneys told Congress that the removal was on the order of the Department of Justice.

That's not a defense against the crime.
Crime? The case was closed. "Case Closed"
Denial more likely!
? The case was closed. "Case Closed"
The US Attorney in Delaware closed the case? Provide proof.
Should be fun to see if the gun control happy Democrats prosecute Hunter for his lies when obtaining a gun while being an addict since guns are so bad!

Since gun laws don't apply to anyone in areas governed by Democrats, he'll probably walk.
Why the hell not!
They can do whatever they want and get away with it!
