On Monday, September 18, Hunter Biden’s legal team filed a lawsuit against the IRS, alleging that IRS agents have “targeted and sought to embarrass” the president’s son in their actions.
Additionally, in Monday morning filing, Hunter’s legal team pointed at two significant instances involving IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.
The two were identified as whistleblowers alleging mishandling of aspects of the IRS investigation into Hunter. Following this event, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity took to social media to share this with his followers and report on Hunter suing the IRS as the agents tried to ‘target’ and ‘embarrass’ him.

Fox News anchor Sean Hannity took to social media to share an article featuring the details of Hunter Biden’s action to sue the IRS as he wrote, “THEY embarrassed HIM…sure…”
He posted an article from Hannity’s official website titled, “IR-MESS! Hunter Biden and Lawyers Sue IRS for Trying to ‘Embarrass’ Him; Report.” In the article, it highlights that Hunter 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.
Hunter’s lawsuit claims, “Biden is the son of the President of the United States. He has all the same responsibilities as any other American citizen, and the IRS can and should make certain that he abides by those responsibilities.”
It continued, “Similarly, Mr. Biden has no fewer or lesser rights than any other American citizen, and no government agency or government agent has free rein to violate his rights simply because of who he is.”
In addition to this, Hunter’s complaint featured, “Yet, the IRS and its agents have conducted themselves under a presumption that the rights that apply to every other American citizen do not apply to Mr. Biden.”
