Hunter Biden’s attorneys filed a lawsuit against the IRS on Monday, alleging that agents have “targeted and sought to embarrass” the president’s son.
Biden’s Monday morning filing cites two major examples in IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, two whistleblowers who claimed the IRS mishandled aspects of its investigation into Biden.
Biden’s lawsuit seeks for the court to declare that the IRS “willfully, knowingly, and/or by gross negligence, unlawfully disclosed Mr. Biden’s confidential tax information.”
In addition, Biden is demanding $1,000 in damages for “each and every unauthorized disclosure of his tax returns,” including disclosures that happened after the fact....

He’s got balls, that’s for sure.
He really is an idiot or he knows he is immune.
Sure. We seen the pictures.
Both of the above.
Weren’t Trumps returns publicized? And those of many other Republicans or Conservatives? What was the last name of Christina, a candidate on the east coast whose returns were leaked the day she announced candidacy?
Hunter you need no help when it comes to embarrassing oneself.
He’s embarrassed himself far more and far more efficiently than anyone else on the planet could ever have done.
This may be something else altogether.
If government agents are sued for things done in the course of their employment, DOJ defends them. And covers any judgments against them.
If DOJ doesn’t defend these guys, the Deep State is sending a message.
Well, Hunter (Rob) has to earn somehow? This is probably the most legitimate way of making bank he’s ever engaged in, really. Never let a crisis (or revenue opportunity) go to waste. He’s quite likely to find a judge that issues an order to pay him for unlawful disclosures regardless of the source. Bingo! $50K per month for life.
I agree. This is an opening Salvo in a war between the DOJ and the ISR.
He’s no idiot. He is running out of money.
IRS Commissioner Werfel will reach a multi-million dollar settlement with Hunter. Hunter will be set for another year or two.
“Nobody f***s with a Biden!” - Jo Jo Bidenskyyyy.
Let me start by saying what I’m about to say is the case of this action had been brought in CA state court. Rules where this action has been brought could be significant where the action was brought ( and in a major admission, the article doesn’t say where that is)
I’ve often complained on this forum about people who think lawsuits are like magic and “discovery will be interesting.” In this case, though, I’ll endorse the latter view in exactly one respect: Hunter will finally be required to admit under oath that the laptop is his. Even in recent weeks he’s been cagey on that point.
In CA discovery can go out day one. One does not even need to wait to be served; you can submit to this jurisdiction of the court without being served.
That said, he’ll take the Fifth in light of the pending prosecution. In CA that would end up with the action being stayed until the criminal prosecution is complete.
We’re well within the Statute of Limitations and, because of the stay, the only benefit to filing now is for a PR benefit. But what’s the benefit? I think he’s going to have a hard time finding a jury anywhere that’s going to pity his plight, especially since I think the rats are not going to try to protect him, and certainly not if the party decides daddy is going under the bus.
Just because he’s probably paying his lawyers more than a grand an hour doesn’t mean they’re smart. I just don’t see the upside for having done this, at the very least not now
50,000 K a week is more like Hunter’s drug costs
Apropos to what I just said, here’s Hunter going under the bus. You can tell it’s serious because republicans “pounce” in the headline and “seize” in the body of the article
His attorneys make Michael Cohen look ethical.
