Gary Shapley, the IRS whistleblower who asked for an investigation into the Hunter Biden investigation, has blasted special counsel U.S. Attorney David Weiss for lacking credibility.
According to Shapley, Weiss was instrumental in the investigation and the decision-making process, which prevented the necessary investigative measures from being undertaken.
Shapley has requested that a special counsel be appointed to look into Weiss’s and Garland’s behavior and their comments and correspondence with Congress.
Despite correspondence that linked Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s bribery schemes, both Shapley and IRS agent Joseph Ziegler said that typical investigation processes were impeded, and they were diverted from studying Joe Biden’s position in his son’s companies. They also testified that Biden’s role in his son’s shady businesses was not investigated as usual despite evidence that implicated him.
Eleven FBI and Justice Department officials, including US Attorney for the District of Delaware David Weiss, have been subpoenaed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about the alleged coverup in the Hunter Biden case. After hearing from other witnesses, including Shapley and Ziegler, who allege that Weiss was prevented from pressing felony charges against Hunter Biden by his father’s designated US attorneys in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, the panel expects to examine Weiss last.
The assertions made by the IRS whistleblower have already been supported by evidence. Darrell Waldon, the head of the IRS’s special agents, emailed back that Shapley “covered it all.”
The Justice Department has agreed to let Weiss testify, but the other ten officials have declined, so the Judiciary Committee may issue subpoenas to compel them to appear before the committee and answer questions.
According to Shapley, it is clear that Hunter Biden was given preferential treatment in his plea agreement compared to other instances. He used the example of Darryl De Sousa, the former commissioner of the Baltimore Police Department, who pled guilty to three tax felonies in 2018 and served ten months in jail for dodging taxes totaling less than $68,000. The same government lawyers, Leo Wise and Derek Hines handled both cases; this is not fair treatment of taxpayers.
