DOJ Planned To Let Hunter Biden Off the Hook Until Senior IRS Whistleblowers Stepped Forward

 August 21, 2023

Last month, IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley, and Joseph Ziegler, an IRS Agent with the criminal investigations division, both whistleblowers, testified before a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing in Congress. Their testimony has played a central role in exposing how the IRS, and subsequently the DOJ, have often provided political interference in the investigations and handling of Hunter Biden’s case.

Hunter Biden is reportedly under investigation for money laundering, tax fraud, and gun and foreign lobbying violations, by Trump-appointed United States Attorney David C. Weiss. The New York Times found, earlier this year, that Mr. Weiss appeared willing to forgo any prosecution of Mr. Biden at all, and his office came close to agreeing to end the investigation, without requiring a guilty plea on any charges.

However, his correspondence revealed that Weiss’s position, changed in the spring, around the time a pair of I.R.S. officials on the case accused the Justice Department of hamstringing the investigation. It would appear, that exposure to the light of day with actual scrutiny changed his mind.

Suddenly Mr. Weiss demanded that Mr. Biden plead guilty to committing tax offenses. So despite the claims of Attorney General Merrick Garland, to the contrary, the Department of Justice (DOJ) planned to let Hunter Biden off the hook without charges, until these two whistleblowers came forward to expose political interference in the investigation.

And even as Garland was testifying to Congress that Weiss had full authority to act in the case,

The New York Times exposed the inside dealings of Hunter Biden’s attorneys with senior officials at DOJ, who had constrained U.S. Attorney for Delaware, David Weiss. The outlet reported that not only did the whistleblowers stop the cover-up, affecting his recent plea deal failure but that Hunter Biden’s lawyers now want these whistleblowers to be prosecuted, for speaking out against his special treatment.

Hunters’ lawyers have contended to the Justice Department that, by disclosing details about the investigation to Congress, they broke the law and should be prosecuted. This is in clear violation of President Biden’s promise to protect whistleblowers.

Essentially, the whistleblowers, told the House of Representatives that prosecutors would not let them pursue Hunter Biden’s tax crimes, and had sometimes tipped off the president’s son about impending searches or interviews. Which in at least one documented case, enabled the administration to curtail any interview of Hunter that has been planned by officials tied to the investigation.

In a clear conflict of interest, earlier this month, Garland named Weiss a “Special Counsel” in the case, raising suspicions that his real purpose was to continue the cover-up and possibly place a stumbling block before Congress, who has effectively been serving as special counsel in the matter. Further, the tax charges  levied against Hunter, were withdrawn, to be pursued elsewhere, in a more Biden friendly court, which might prove advantageous to the presidents’ son – avoiding further inquiries.

It would seem the truth still struggles to see the light of day - stay tuned.
