In an earth-shattering testimony before the House Oversight Committee today, two IRS whistleblowers, Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, unraveled the web of injustice spun around Hunter Biden. They unveiled the shocking reality of how the Department of Justice (DOJ), under the control of Joe Biden, manipulated the system to shield Hunter Biden from serious criminal charges. As the whistleblowers painted a vivid picture of tax evasion, false statements, and institutional cover-ups, it becomes increasingly clear: Joe Biden’s administration played a pivotal role in burying the truth and allowing misdemeanors to be masqueraded as the due course of justice.
Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, came under the scanner for alleged tax evasion from 2017 and 2018, a crime that should be dealt with seriously. However, according to Gary Shapley, a long-standing IRS whistleblower, the DOJ blocked two search warrants and multiple felony charges against Hunter, opting to slap him with two misdemeanours instead. These actions have not only thrown the American legal system into disarray but also highlighted a grave instance of misuse of power for personal gains.
Joseph Ziegler, another IRS whistleblower, made it known that the DOJ’s interference in this case was stark and unparalleled. He stated, “The US attorney in Delaware in our investigation was constantly hamstrung, limited and marginalized by DOJ officials as well as other US attorneys.” The stinging testimony from a seasoned IRS official raises significant questions about the impartiality of justice and the blatant protectionism at play in the Biden administration.
One of the major points in Ziegler’s opening statement involved Hunter Biden’s contradictory claims about his business deductions in the tax year 2018. As per the whistleblower’s account, Hunter Biden, in his memoir, admitted to his drug use and residence at Chateau Marmont. In contrast, his tax returns showed a massive underreporting of his income, causing a loss of approximately $106,000 to the US Treasury.
Besides, Hunter Biden also failed to report his earnings from Burisma for the tax year 2014, causing a further tax loss of around $124,000 to the Government. The fact that these deductions were unaddressed in the DOJ action against Hunter Biden adds further fuel to the fire, indicating possible collusion within the justice system to protect the president’s son.
According to Gary Shapley’s account, the Delaware US Attorney’s Office and DOJ’s handling of the Hunter Biden tax investigation was far from regular. He cited the deliberate slow-walking of document requests, search warrants, and interviews, along with the suppression of critical evidence from Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Shapley also revealed that investigators were instructed to avoid specific subjects during interviews, highlighting the clear suppression of necessary facts and figures. He further pointed out that the Biden transition team was informed in advance about interviews, resulting in a carefully curated image designed to shield Hunter Biden from any damaging revelations.
These testimonies paint a glaring picture of misconduct, where the DOJ, under the Biden administration, has used its power to protect one of their own. The actions are not only an affront to the principles of justice but also undermine the democratic integrity of our institutions.
Notably, the whistleblowers’ accounts affirm that the DOJ consistently blocked the investigation into Hunter Biden. This, Shapley argued, involved denying search warrants, limiting witness interviews, and preventing any queries about President Biden himself. He called it a “pattern of preferential treatment and obstruction”, a damning indictment of a system that is supposed to uphold justice.
What’s more, Shapley stated that US Attorney David Weiss allowed the statute of limitations to expire on charges against Hunter Biden related to tax evasion and fraud statements concerning Burisma income for the years 2014-2015.
Shapley further revealed that the Assistant US Attorney rejected a search warrant at Biden’s residence due to the ‘optics’, despite agreeing that probable cause existed.
Amidst these startling revelations, an exchange between Rep. James Comer and Whistleblower Shapely stood out. Comer brought up a concerning statement made by Hunter Biden to his CEFC China Energy partners: “The Bidens are the best I know at doing exactly what the chairman wants from this partnership.” Shapley confirmed that the DOJ indeed prevented investigations into President Biden that could shed light on such ominous statements.
The recent indictment of Dr. Gal Luft, a Biden corruption whistleblower, further exposes the biased operations of the DOJ. He was charged for not registering as an agent of CEFC China Energy, while Hunter, James, and Sara Biden have seemingly collected millions from the same company without registering, thereby also violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
The explosive testimonies of IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler unveiled an appalling misuse of power in the Biden administration. The evidence pointing towards a deliberate protectionist strategy to shield Hunter Biden from serious tax evasion charges is concerning. It raises questions about the impartiality of the Department of Justice and threatens the core democratic principles of our institutions.
As the nation reels from these revelations, we are left wondering how deep the rot of this alleged cover-up goes. It’s a sobering reminder that no one should be above the law, not even the President’s family. The American people deserve a thorough investigation to establish the truth and hold those responsible to account. Anything less would be a gross failure of justice.
Justice, like democracy, must not only be done but also seen to be done. It is the American people’s hope that these testimonies will trigger a thorough and transparent inquiry. Despite the damning nature of the allegations, every accused party, including Hunter Biden, has the right to a fair trial.
One thing is certain: these revelations have rocked the Biden administration. Their implications could be far-reaching, potentially shaping public opinion, political dynamics, and the future course of American politics. Only time will tell how this scandal unfolds. As always, the truth will eventually come to light.
