Climate Protesters Escorted Out of House Office Building During IRS Whistleblowers Hearing

A group of climate protesters were placed in restraints and escorted out of the Rayburn House Office Building on Wednesday, just before a House Oversight Committee hearing featuring testimony from IRS whistleblowers.

The protesters, consisting of a little over a dozen individuals, were wearing t-shirts that read: “End fossil fuels, Biden.” They walked through the hall outside the hearing, chanting and raising their fists in the air, while displaying a large sign with the same message.

Upon reaching the hearing room, the protesters continued their loud chanting outside the door, prompting Capitol Police to place them in restraints one by one and escort them out of the building.

The protest took place as IRS whistleblowers testified before the House of Representatives, alleging an “undeniable pattern of preferential treatment” for the Bidens and “obstruction of the normal investigative process” during the federal investigation into Hunter Biden.

One of the whistleblowers, special agent Joseph Ziegler, publicly appeared for the first time before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday. Ziegler, a gay Democrat with over 13 years of service in the IRS’ Criminal Investigation Division, is expected to testify about the need for more severe charges against Hunter Biden and the potential contradiction of President Biden’s statements regarding his son’s overseas business dealings.

He is also expected to shed light on instances where prosecutors hindered the investigation, including blocking the questioning and interviewing of Hunter Biden’s adult children. Ziegler’s testimony aims to expose the “corrosion of ethical standards and the abuse of power” he has witnessed during his career.
