Recent claims by whistleblowers regarding the investigation into Hunter Biden‘s possible tax violations have raised questions about whether the investigation was given preferential treatment. California Representative Brad Sherman has weighed in on the issue in Friday’s edition of C–SPAN’s “Washington Journal”, recognizing the potential for the investigation into Mr. Biden to have had more resources and attention than it would have for a regular person due to the sensitivity of the investigation.
Mr. Sherman noted that Hunter Biden’s name is now public in this affair, indicating a real price he might be paying for his non–compliance with tax laws. Mr. Sherman also noted that generally, the consequences for cheating on taxes are softer than they should be, and while it’s hard to name anyone who has done jail time for cheating on taxes, he is not advocating for a policy change just because of who the individual is.
In response to a question about whether the investigation into Hunter Biden should be further investigated based on the whistleblowers’ claims, Mr. Sherman expressed that all claims should be investigated, noting that it wouldn’t surprise him if the investigation took more time and resources due to the sensitivity of the situation.
The investigation into Hunter Biden is certainly attracting attention, as the individual under investigation is the son of the President of the United States. The claims by whistleblowers have prompted calls for further investigation into this matter, with Mr. Sherman emphasizing that it is important to recognize that there is a potential for certain investigations to take longer and receive more attention due to the sensitivity of the investigation.
At this time, it is too early to know what the outcome of any investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax matters may be. What is certain is that this investigation is being closely watched by the public and by those within the government, and people are looking forward to seeing what happens and whether there is any truth to the claims that preferential treatment was given.
