IRS Whistleblower Exposes Mishandling of Hunter Biden Tax Probe
The Internal Revenue Service whistleblower who sounded the alarm on the Department of Justice’s handling of the Hunter Biden tax probe broke his silence Wednesday evening.
A CBS News report reveals that Gary Shapley, an IRS agent with 14 years of experience, blew the whistle on the DOJ’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s son’s alleged tax fraud and financial crimes. Shapley believed it was his duty to draw attention to the probe and felt the prosecutors were mishandling such “a high profile, controversial” case.
“There were multiple steps that were slow-walked — were just completely not done — at the direction of the Department of Justice,” Shapley told CBS News. “When I took control of this particular investigation, I immediately saw deviations from the normal process.
“It was way outside the norm of what I’ve experienced in the past.”
The investigation into Hunter Biden has been ongoing for years and has been led by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump. The probe has been reviewing Biden’s debts during his father’s vice presidency when he served on the board of Burisma, an energy company in Ukraine, as well as a contested gun purchase. The tax debts were reportedly paid off via a loan from Biden’s attorney, Kevin Morris.
Shapley expressed concern that Biden was being protected during this investigation and blew the whistle, stating, “Each and every time, it seemed to always benefit the subject. It just got to that point where that switch was turned on. And I just couldn’t silence my conscience anymore.”
Despite the FBI leaking that its agents gave sufficient evidence to the prosecutors to charge Biden with criminal tax fraud, charges have yet to be brought against the president’s son.
