In a recent development, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has reportedly intervened in the Hunter Biden case, according to New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.
Devine discussed this matter on ‘Fox News Tonight’ and highlighted the removal of an IRS whistleblower and his team from the investigation.
This move by the DOJ has raised concerns about potential political protection and obstruction of justice.
The whistleblower, who had been actively involved in investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes, informed Congress that he and his entire team were abruptly removed from the ongoing investigation.
Allegedly, this action by the DOJ is seen as retaliatory against the whistleblower, a violation of federal law, and an attempt to hinder accountability.
Miranda Devine expressed her disappointment, stating that this incident goes beyond retaliation and constitutes obstruction of justice.
She criticized the DOJ for intervening in such a sensitive case, involving the tax affairs of the President’s son.
The public had been led to believe that the Department of Justice, under Merrick Garland’s leadership, would handle the investigation independently and without interference.
However, Devine argues that this recent revelation proves otherwise.
Furthermore, Devine draws attention to the fact that whistle-blowers in similar cases, such as those from the FBI, have faced severe consequences for their honesty and attempts to bring accountability to government agencies.
She emphasizes that this particular instance of interference by the DOJ is alarming and undermines the credibility of the justice system.
The removal of the investigative team raises questions about the Department of Justice’s motives and the extent to which they are protecting political allies.
Devine argues that this move effectively eliminates any hope for accountability or the pursuit of justice in a case that goes beyond mere tax evasion, but rather focuses on potential corruption involving the President of the United States.
The revelation of the DOJ’s involvement in the Hunter Biden case has ignited concerns about the impartiality of the justice system and the integrity of investigations involving high-profile individuals.
As this story continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how it will impact public trust in the Department of Justice and the pursuit of justice in politically sensitive cases.
