Matt Gaetz requests Speaker Johnson defend Hunter Biden whistleblowers

by | Mar 27, 2024

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is urging Speaker of the House Mike Johnson to direct the House Office of General Counsel to intervene in the case of Robert Hunter Biden v. IRS.

Gaetz asserts that whistleblowers who disclosed details of Hunter Biden’s alleged tax fraud are being targeted in Hunter’s lawsuit against the IRS. He argues that intervening in the lawsuit would protect the rights of individuals who provide protected disclosures to Congress.

“We should be doing everything we can to protect these brave whistleblowers. As a result, pursuant to House Rule 8(c) and 2 U.S.C. § 5571, I respectfully request that you task the House Office of General Counsel with moving to intervene in Biden v. IRS to protect the prerogatives of the House of Representatives and to protect the rights of all Americans to make protected disclosures to Congress,” Gaetz wrote in his letter.
