IRS Whistleblower Claims DOJ Blocked Necessary Investigative Steps In Hunter Biden Probe

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, in an interview with CBS Evening News’ Jim Axelrod on Tuesday, claimed that his team was prevented from taking investigative measures that “could have led us to President Biden.”  Shapley, IRS supervisory agent who accused the Justice Department of interfering in the Hunter Biden tax fraud probe, noted that his team uncovered evidence of several illegal business expenses, crimes that would have landed “any other person” in prison. Shapley said, “There were personal expenses that were taken as business expenses, prostitutes, sex club memberships, hotel rooms for purported drug dealers.” He further suggested that AG Merrick Garland’s testimony under oath to Congress that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss had “complete authority” contradict what Shapley witnessed. Shapley told the House Ways and Means Committee in May that Weiss sought to bring federal charges against Hunter last year and was denied twice by Biden-appointed U.S. attorneys.
