Lawyers say latest Hunter Biden probe Confirms whistleblower Gary Shapley’s Testimony
This is exactly the sort of preferential treatment these IRS agents blew the whistle on to begin with
Attorneys for an IRS whistleblower who said the Justice Department interfered with the Hunter Biden tax probe commented Sunday that the latest revelations about Hunter Biden’s plea deal confirm his testimony.
IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley [pictured above] and Special Agent Joseph Ziegler investigated Hunter Biden’s alleged financial crimes but were removed from the probe after telling Congress that the Justice Department interfered with their investigation.
“Everything we have learned since he came forward has only added to the credibility of the testimony he and SA Ziegler provided,” attorneys for Shapley with the firm Nixon Peabody and the nonprofit watchdog Empower Oversight said.
“Now, it appears that if it weren’t for the courageous actions of these whistleblowers, who had nothing to gain and everything to lose, Hunter Biden would never have been charged at all thanks to the sweetheart treatment of federal prosecutors in Delaware,” the attorneys also said.
Their comments come after The New York Times and Politico reported Saturday that U.S. attorney for Delaware David Weiss appeared to be willing to completely avoid any prosecution of Biden until the whistleblowers told House Republicans that the Justice Department interfered in their investigation. Weiss suddenly began pushing Biden to plead guilty to the tax charges.
“This is exactly the sort of preferential treatment these IRS agents blew the whistle on to begin with, and highlights why someone independent needs to be appointed special counsel rather than David Weiss,” Shapley’s attorneys also said.
