A whistleblower has alleged that the CIA prevented federal investigators from questioning a crucial witness in their investigation into tax fraud by Hunter Biden, President Biden's son. This explosive accusation was brought to the attention of House lawmakers who are probing the president's potential connection to his son's business dealings.

Patrick Kevin Morris, a prominent lawyer in Hollywood and a trusted ally of Hunter Biden, provided nearly $7 million in loans to the president's son to assist with back taxes, housing, and other financial obligations. In August 2021, as part of its inquiry into Hunter Biden’s outstanding taxes, the IRS attempted to interview Mr. Morris, reports The Washington Times .

However, according to lawmakers on Wednesday, the CIA stepped in to prevent this interview from taking place. Prior to their planned interview with Mr. Morris, two officials from the Justice Department involved in the investigation were called to the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

President Biden has consistently denied any involvement in his family's business dealings or any misconduct related to his son.

According to The Washington Times, Jim Jordan from Ohio and James Comer from Kentucky, leading Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight and Accountability committees, respectively, expressed their uncertainty about the CIA's reasons for intervention. However, they noted this action is consistent with other attempts by the Biden administration to obstruct the investigation into the president’s son, as revealed by two IRS whistleblowers.
