Whistleblower claims CIA ‘stonewalled’ IRS interview with Hunter Biden ‘Sugar brother’ Kevin Morris: House GOP

A whistleblower claimed that the CIA “stonewalled” an IRS interview with Hunter Biden’s business associate Kevin Morris, the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees revealed. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said in a Thursday letter to CIA Director William Burns that their panels would investigate the allegations as part of the impeachment inquiry against President Biden. According to the whistleblower, in August 2021, when IRS investigators on the Hunter Biden federal investigation were preparing to interview Morris, the CIA “intervened to stop the interview.” ‘SUGAR BROTHER’ KEVIN MORRIS LOANED HUNTER BIDEN $6.5M FOR DEBTS AND BACK TAXES, MORE THAN PREVIOUS ESTIMATEThe whistleblower alleged that the CIA summoned two Justice Department officials to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, for a briefing regarding Morris. The whistleblower claimed that Morris “could not be a witness in the investigation,” according to the House Republicans. Morris loaned Hunter Biden approximately $6.5 million — over $1 million more than originally estimated and discussed — his attorney revealed in a letter earlier this year. Morris, who was subpoenaed to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry, testified that he loaned Hunter Biden at least $5 million and began paying his tax liability. Morris and his attorney were estimating during the interview, a source told Fox News, and promised to follow-up with exact figures loaned to the first son. The attorney followed up to note an additional $1.6 million Morris had given Hunter Biden. KEVIN MORRIS GAVE ‘MASSIVE’ FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO HUNTER BIDEN, RAISING CAMPAIGN FINANCE CONCERNS: COMER”As part of the impeachment inquiry, the Committees are investigating, among other things, whether President Biden ‘abuse[d] his power as President to impede, obstruct, or otherwise hinder investigations or the prosecution of Hunter Biden.’ As background, for years, the IRS and DOJ had been investigating Hunter Biden for tax crimes,” Jordan and Comer wrote. “The Committees have documented how the DOJ deviated from its standard processes to afford preferential treatment to Hunter Biden.” Jordan and Comer were referring to whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler — investigators who served on the IRS team probing Hunter Biden. They testified that DOJ officials “deviated” from the normal process and provided preferential treatment to Hunter Biden.”Among other deviations, DOJ officials restricted what investigative steps the investigators could pursue, tipped off Hunter Biden’s attorneys about investigative steps, and even prevented investigators from conducting witness interviews,” the House Republicans wrote. “The whistleblowers’ testimony about the preferential treatment provided to Hunter Biden has been corroborated by testimony from other witnesses and documents the Committees have received.” Jordan and Comer said the new whistleblower claims “seem to corroborate our concerns about DOJ’s deviations from standard process to provide Hunter Biden with preferential treatment.” “It is unknown why or on what basis the CIA allegedly intervened to prevent investigators from interviewing Mr. Morris,” they wrote. “However, these allegations track with other evidence showing how the DOJ deviated from its standard investigative practices during the investigation of Hunter Biden.” Jordan and Comer are now demanding the CIA provide all documents and communications referring or relating to the DOJ and IRS’ investigation of Hunter Biden, and all records relating to Kevin Morris — “including but not limited to efforts to interview Mr. Morris as part of the investigation of Robert Hunter Biden.”HUNTER BIDEN LAWYER TESTIFIES THAT 1ST TRUMP IMPEACHMENT CREATED ‘EMERGENCY’ TO FILE UNPAID TAXESMorris, on Oct. 13, 2021, gave Hunter Biden a loan for approximately $1.4 million.
