VIDEO: Whistleblower Leaves Biden Speechless


How will Biden recover from this?

A supervisory agent from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) involved in the investigation of Hunter Biden has revealed to CBS News that his team faced obstacles in pursuing “specific investigative measures” that could have potentially led them to President Biden.

According to Newsweek, Hunter Biden, the son of the president, recently reached a plea agreement with U.S. Attorney David Weiss in Delaware. The agreement entails pleading guilty to two federal misdemeanors for failing to pay income taxes and acknowledging the illegal possession of a firearm while being a drug user. In return, he would avoid imprisonment. However, the IRS agent turned whistleblower, Gary Shapley, asserted that an average American would have likely faced incarceration in similar circumstances.

The ongoing legal issues faced by Hunter Biden could potentially impact President Biden’s campaign, as he is currently leading the polls among other Democratic candidates vying for the party’s nomination in the 2024 presidential election. Meanwhile, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is embroiled in his own legal battles. He has been charged in relation to alleged mishandling of classified documents and the reported payment of hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges in both cases.

During an appearance on CBS News, Shapley remarked, “There were specific investigative measures that we were prohibited from pursuing, measures that could have led us to President Biden.” When asked if the IRS team wished to pursue those measures, he responded, “We needed to pursue them, but we were not given permission to do so.”

Shapley contradicted statements made by Attorney General Merrick Garland last week, who claimed that Weiss had complete authority to make all decisions independently. In response, the IRS agent stated, “I have thoroughly documented what occurred, and it does not align with the statements being made today by the attorney general or the U.S. attorney.”

According to Shapley, Hunter Biden owed $2.2 million in unpaid taxes from 2014 to 2019. He expressed, “If this were any other individual, they likely would have already faced the consequences.”

Regarding Hunter Biden’s business dealings, Shapley mentioned, “Certain personal expenses were falsely claimed as business expenses, including illegal activities.”

Last week, Shapley testified before the Republican-controlled House Ways and Means Committee, where he asserted that the Department of Justice displayed preferential treatment, delayed the investigation, and failed to address obvious conflicts of interest in the Hunter Biden case.
