According to testimony given to congressional investigators by an FBI supervisory special agent, Joe Biden’s transition team and the Secret Service headquarters were alerted in December 2020 about an upcoming Hunter Biden interview with the FBI. The warning prevented the then-President-elect’s son from being questioned despite being identified as a target in the ongoing federal investigation.
The agent, who retired from the FBI after more than two decades of service last year, gave an under-oath interview to the House Oversight Committee last month, which was recorded and then released to the public.
During the Hunter Biden inquiry, conducted by U.S. Attorney David Weiss, his testimony came at a time when a whistleblower claimed that prosecution choices were affected by politics. According to testimony from IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, the Secret Service and the Biden transition team were tipped about the scheduled interrogation of Hunter Biden. The agent’s statement backs up Shapley’s claims.
After a plea deal orchestrated by the Justice Department collapsed in federal court on Constitutional grounds, US Attorney General Merrick Garland last week attempted to dispel the suspicion that the investigation into the president’s son had been politicized. The president’s son pleaded innocent to a felony gun charge and a pair of misdemeanor tax charges.
Garland nominated Weiss to investigate Hunter Biden and anything else that comes up throughout the course of the inquiry.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Kentucky, told Fox News Digital that warning the transition team along with not being able to question Hunter Biden as planned are just two examples that reveal the Justice Department’s wrongdoing in the Biden criminal probe that occurred under the watch of U.S. Attorney Weiss.
According to reports, leaked documents were recently released providing fresh details regarding Hunter Biden’s case and the internal operations of the Justice Department.
Within days after IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley’s stunning revelations of internal prejudice, Weiss requested that Hunter plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax offenses.
The New York Times reports that Hunter Biden’s attorneys urged the DOJ to focus its prosecution resources on the IRS whistleblowers rather than Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
