The identity of the IRS whistleblower, known only as “Whistleblower X”, was revealed on Wednesday as a “gay Democrat married to a man” — a big problem for Democrats.
Special Agent Joseph Ziegler testified before members of the powerful House Judiciary, Oversight and Accountability, and Ways and Means committees.that the IRS gave preferential treatment to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
“I have witnessed the corrosion of ethical standards and the abuse of power that threaten our nation. It is within this context that I have chosen to shed light on these actions and expose those responsible,” he said.
“I recognize that while I was present at the start of this investigation and was closely involved with the investigation for roughly five years — that I am just a part of the story. My aim is to address systemic problems that have allowed misconduct to flourish. It is not a call for blame but a call for accountability and reform.”
“Transparency is the foundation of our democracy,” Ziegler told Congress Wednesday. “Without it, people lose their trust in the institutions and the bonds that tie the fabric of our nation start to fray.”
“The American people deserve to know the truth no matter how uncomfortable or inconvenient it may be for either political party,” he said.
There was a pattern of “slow-walking investigative steps” into Hunter Biden during the 2020 presidential election, Ziegler claimed.
He called for a special counsel to be appointed to investigate Hunter without “political interference.”
“Related cases that I believe are subject to the same problems and difficulties we had,” he said, and added that Congress should establish “an official channel for Federal investigators to pull the emergency cord and raise the issue of the appointment of a special counsel for consideration by your senior officials.”
