Earlier this month, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) announced that a whistleblower came forward to claim that the FBI possessed evidence of an alleged bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden and members of his family that dates back to Biden’s term as vice president in the Obama administration.
Since then, however, Comer said the inside source has gone missing as some Republicans speculate that the individual might have been targeted in order to keep the potentially damning information from coming to light.
“Nine of the 10 people that we’ve identified that have very good knowledge with respect to the Bidens, they’re one of three things,” Comer said. “They’re either currently in court, they’re currently in jail, or they’re currently missing. … So, it’s of the utmost importance that the FBI work with us to be able to try to identify what research they’ve done, what investigations they’ve done, because we have people that want to come forward, but honestly, they fear for their lives.”
As of this writing, there has been no update regarding the whistleblower’s whereabouts, but another source has reportedly come forward to accuse the Department of Justice of eliminating an “entire investigative team” at the Internal Revenue Service as it conducted a probe into Biden’s son, Hunter.
Attorney Mark Lytle reportedly represents the IRS whistleblower and wrote a letter to Congress that contained the latest allegations against the DOJ.
The lawyer previously sent a letter to multiple congressional committees that outlined “political interference in the criminal investigation of a high-profile, politically connected individual” believed to be Hunter Biden.
For his part, the younger Biden confirmed more than two years ago that he was under investigation for what he called “tax affairs.”
As that case drags on, however, the IRS whistleblower reportedly alleged that the information he could provide contradicts “sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee” while exposing the “failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case.”

The whistleblower reportedly cast into doubt the accuracy of Attorney General Merrick Garland’s testimony in March that he would “ensure” U.S. Attorney David Weiss’ ability “to carry out his investigation and that he’d be able to run it.”
IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel attempted to put any such speculation of reprisal against informants to rest last month, telling the House Ways and Means Committee that there would be “no retaliation for anyone making an allegation or a call to a whistleblower hotline.”
