Hunter Biden believed IRS investigation would 'go away' once Joe took office: House Ways and Means Committee

"Producer has an email from Hunter saying he expected all of this 'stuff' to go away when his dad becomes President."

In documents released by the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday, it was revealed that Hunter Biden expected the IRS investigation into his business dealings to "go away when his dad becomes president."

In one email sent on September 22, 2021, an IRS employee revealed that he had been contacted by a CNN producer regarding "Sportsman," the codename given to the Hunter Biden investigation.

"Producer has an email from Hunter saying he expected all of this 'stuff' to go away when his dad becomes President."

Recipients of the email were former IRS Criminal Investigation Deputy Chief Jim Robnett and IRS CI Chief Jim Lee.

The Ways and Means Committee also released a message in which Hunter Biden once again referred to his father as the "brand" being sold to his business partners.

In one message from June 6, 2017, Hunter Biden wrote, "Bullsh*t James - all around bullsh*t. Explain to me one thing Tony brings to MY table that I so desperately need that I’m willing to sign over my family’s brand and pretty much the rest of my business life? Read the f*cking documents people."

"It’s plane [sic] f*cking English. Why in gods name would I give this marginal bully the kets my family’s only asset? Why?" he added.

"The scheme generated millions of dollars from foreign countries for members of the Biden family, channeled through a vast array of corporate entities and shell companies," the Ways and Means Committee wrote.

The documents released by the committee also referenced the removal of "Political Figure 1" from a search warrant in the Hunter Biden investigation. These documents were revealed by the House Oversight Committee earlier in the day.

"Today, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to release new documents provided by the two IRS whistleblowers that corroborate their initial testimony to the Committee and reinforce their credibility and their high esteem among colleagues," Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith said.

"These documents show a clearer connection between Joe Biden, his public office, and Hunter Biden’s global influence peddling scheme that resulted in over $20 million in payments to the Biden family. In addition to then Vice-President Joe Biden attending lunches and speaking on the phone with his son’s business associates, the details released today paint a fuller picture of how Joe Biden’s vice-presidential office was instrumental to the Biden family’s business schemes."

Smith said the evidence "shows a pattern of Hunter Biden creating for-profit entities to shield at least $20 million from foreign sources from taxes and hide the trail of payments that led to members of the Biden family," and that the "growing body of evidence further calls into question the Justice Department’s attempted sweetheart plea deal for Hunter Biden."

"This evidence makes clear Hunter Biden’s business was selling the Biden ‘brand’ and that access to the White House was his family’s most valuable asset – despite official claims otherwise."

The release of these documents came one day before the start of the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden and his family’s overseas business dealings.

The committees will investigate if Biden "…abused his federal office to enrich his family and conceal his and/or his family's misconduct,” according to the 30-page memo released ahead of Thursday’s hearing.
