According to the House Oversight Committee, the FBI “tipped off” the Biden transition team about the planned Hunter Biden interview.

“Today we’re releasing the former FBI supervisory special agent’s transcript. During the transcribed interview, the former FBI SSA corroborated key details in the IRS whistleblowers’ testimony,” the House Oversight Committee wrote.

“During U.S. Attorney Weiss’ investigation, the Biden transition team was TIPPED OFF about the planned Hunter Biden interview. The IRS & FBI team were told to stand down and WAIT FOR HUNTER TO CALL before they could interview him. That call that never came, and they never interviewed Hunter Biden.”

“The former FBI SSA confirms IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley’s testimony that FBI headquarters tipped off Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team about the planned Hunter Biden interview,” the House Oversight Committee continued.

“The former FBI Supervisory Special Agent and IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley were told to wait for a phone call to interview Hunter Biden. However, they never received a phone call and never interviewed Hunter Biden for the investigation.”

“It’s also worth noting that after months of slow walking other facets of the investigation, the ‘Day of Action’ where the FBI and IRS team would be able to interview Hunter Biden was delayed until days after Hunter Biden received secret service protection,” the House Oversight Committee continued.

“We have no confidence in U.S. Attorney Weiss as Special Counsel given his inability to prevent the Biden transition team from being contacted and other misconduct during the Biden criminal investigation.”

Fox News reports:

His testimony came amid whistleblower allegations that prosecutorial decisions made throughout the Hunter Biden investigation, led by U.S. attorney David Weiss, were influenced by politics. IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley testified that the Biden transition team and the Secret Service were “tipped off” about the planned interview of Hunter Biden. The agent corroborates Shapley’s testimony.

Attorney General Merrick Garland last week sought to clear the cloud of alleged politicization from the investigation into the president’s son, who pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and a felony gun charge after an orchestrated plea deal with the Justice Department fell apart in federal court on grounds of unconstitutionality.

Garland on Friday appointed Weiss as special counsel in the investigation into Hunter Biden and any other matters that arose or may arise from that probe.

That appointment has left Republicans and critics of Garland outraged and with questions as to how the same prosecutor who has been leading the investigation for more than four years—and accused of allowing politics to influence decisions—could now lead the probe with a newfound perception of independence from the Biden Justice Department.

“Tipping off the transition team and not being able to interview Hunter Biden as planned are just a couple of examples that reveal the Justice Department’s misconduct in the Biden criminal investigation that occurred under U.S. Attorney Weiss’ watch,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., told Fox News Digital.

Senator. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday criticized the appointment of U.S. attorney David Weiss as special counsel, calling it a “camouflage and cover up.”
