Hunter Biden has been charged with making false statements and possession of a firearm, and the investigation is ongoing.
A total of three IRS officials confirmed that their investigation faced influence and roadblocks stemming from Joe Biden’s administration.
The president is accused of obstructing justice in Hunter’s case as part of an impeachment inquiry launched against him for accepting bribes from foreign nationals.
Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland has denied accusations that he prevented Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss from filing charges against Hunter.

Bank records show Hunter received millions in unexplained wire transfers from foreign nationals and failed to pay taxes. Due to delays in the case, some tax years are passed the statute of limitations for charges to be filed.
IRS Director of Field Operations Michael Batdorf told Congress that he felt “frustrated” by the refusal of the Justice Department to approve tax charges.
Multiple high-ranking IRS agents viewed the charges as well-supported by evidence.
Garland has falsely claimed publicly that Weiss was given full control and authority to file charges. In reality, Weiss told IRS agents that his hands were being tied in the case.
“DOJ Tax would have to authorize charges prior to David Weiss recommending an indictment or prosecution,” Batdorf said during his interview.

“So, I mean, my understanding is that, I mean, he can’t make that decision without DOJ Tax authorization,” Batdorf said. (Trending: Kari Lake Blasts ‘Woke’ NFL)
During a congressional hearing, Garland said, “Most of the time, but not when the attorney general has granted authority to a U.S. attorney to do what he thinks is best.”
Batdorf said, “I was frustrated. [Weiss] was probably a little frustrated … because he now had to make some decisions on what he was going to do.”
