Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., highlighted a double standard of treatment between the Biden family and the rest of America this week as House Republicans continue to investigate an alleged bribery scheme linked to the man in the White House.
McCarthy wrote on Twitter, “If you don’t pay your taxes, the IRS will come after you. If Hunter Biden doesn’t pay his taxes, the IRS waits until the statute of limitations expires. Why is the Biden family treated differently than every other family in America?”
McCarthy was referring to testimony from IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, who has strongly alleged that the DOJ pressured his team to slow-walk an investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes.
The House Speaker told the press, “Why does the IRS go after Americans, but when it comes to the Biden family they let the statute of limitations run out for the most grievous [allegations], that an IRS whistleblower has to come through to Congress. But why does the IRS remove these workers going after these cases when it comes to the Biden family?”
McCarthy’s comments come just after the House Judiciary Committee questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray on whether Joe Biden was under criminal investigation.
Wray would not definitely confirm or deny if Biden was being criminally investigated.
“Why are the Biden family treated different than every other American family?” McCarthy reiterated in his comments.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said last week that new information would soon be released regarding their investigation into the Biden bribery investigation, noting that they had identified at least six banks that were linked to alleged foreign cash flow.
Comer additionally announced this week that several IRS whistleblowers will appear before the GOP Oversight Committee on July 19 to share their testimony regarding “critical info related to our ongoing investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling schemes.”
