Hunter Biden has filed a lawsuit against IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, accusing them of publicly revealing his confidential tax information. Shapley’s legal team denounced the lawsuit, calling it a baseless smear tactic. They maintain that any information disclosed by Shapley and Ziegler was authorized through whistleblower channels and thus not a breach of confidentiality. Previously, the agents had testified before Congress, alleging a double standard in the handling of Hunter Biden’s investigation by the IRS and Department of Justice. The lawsuit claims extensive public disclosure of confidential tax information during televised interviews and public statements.
