IRS Whistleblower Gary Shapley went under oath before the House Oversight Committee and had a lot to say away the DOJ handled the IRS’s investigation into Hunter Biden.

Shapley told a panel of lawmakers that the DOJ purposely let the statute of limitations expire on Hunter Biden’s 2014-2015 charges that allege Hunter made false statements regarding how much income he received from Burisma.

Shapley later shared “Assistant US attorney Lesley Wolf cited the optics of executing a search warrant at President Biden’s residence as a deciding factor for not allowing it even though she agreed probable cause existed”

Watch him say it here:

Per The Federalist:

Gary Shapley, a veteran agent with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), told House lawmakers Wednesday that the Justice Department slow-walked criminal proceedings into Hunter Biden to allow the statute of limitations to expire.

Shapley testified as one of two IRS whistleblowers on Capitol Hill alleging widespread interference in their criminal tax investigation of the Biden family. The second whistleblower revealed their identity at the Wednesday hearing as Joseph Ziegler, a gay Democrat with over a decade of tenure at the federal tax agency. Both served lead roles in the Biden investigation and said their efforts were hampered by officials at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Shapley said U.S. Delaware Attorney David Weiss waited out the statute of limitations related to 2014-2015 financial crimes allowing the president’s son to evade additional charges. In June, news broke of a plea deal struck between Weiss and Hunter Biden limited to two misdemeanor tax crimes and a single felony charge over illegal firearm possession. The latter is forgiven after 24 months of sobriety, an agreement placed in jeopardy if the mysterious White House cocaine was linked to the first family’s son, who wrote a book on his struggle with drug addiction.

“In November of 2022, the statute of limitations was set to expire for the 2014 and 2015 charges in D.C., which included the 2014 felonies for the attempt to evade or defeat tax and fraud or false statement regarding Burisma income earned by Hunter Biden,” Shapley said.

Hunter Biden served on the board of the Ukrainian energy company raking in excess compensation despite having no prior experience in the industry.

The Daily Wire had more details to share about the hearing:

One of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblowers from the Hunter Biden investigation said the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss are not being consistent in attempts to explain charging authorities in the matter.

IRS supervisory special agent Gary Shapley, who testified alongside special agent Joseph Ziegler before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday about the alleged mishandling of the probe into President Joe Biden‘s son, said he does not know what happened internally at the DOJ.

Moments prior, Jordan pressed Shapley to discuss an email he sent to superiors summarizing an October 2022 meeting which noted Weiss told attendees he was not the “deciding person” on whether to bring charges and was denied special counsel authority by Main DOJ.

A response to that email from one of Shapley’s superiors, which was released in late June as part of his testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee, thanked Shapley and said, “You covered it all.”
