Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene during a House Oversight Committee hearing presented graphic photos from Hunter Biden’s laptop of the president’s son in compromising positions.
The committee was interviewing two IRS whistleblowers, Special Agent Joseph Ziegler and his supervisor Gary Shapley, who alleged political misconduct in the investigation of Hunter Biden.

Ziegler testified that Hunter Biden claimed a $10,000 deduction on his 2018 tax return for a golf club membership, which turned out to be a sex club membership.
He also alleged that Hunter wrote off payments to prostitutes as business expenses.
Greene raised concerns about the legality of these expenses and accused Hunter Biden of violating the Mann Act, which prohibits the transportation of individuals across state lines for immoral purposes.
During the hearing, Greene displayed censored nude photos from Hunter Biden’s laptop, claiming they were evidence of him engaging in pornography.

Some Democrats objected to the display of the photos, deeming it “unbecoming of this hearing.” Greene’s time to speak eventually ran out as she faced interruptions.
Joseph Ziegler, who revealed his identity as “Whistleblower X,” is a gay Democrat with over a dozen years of service in the IRS’ criminal investigative division.
He appeared publicly for the first time, while Shapley had testified before the House Ways and Means Committee the previous month.

The whistleblowers raised serious allegations, claiming that officials from the Justice Department, FBI, and IRS interfered in the investigation of Hunter Biden.
They alleged that political influences played a role in decision-making during the prolonged federal probe into President Biden’s son.
