President Biden’s Involvement in Hunter Biden Investigation Revealed: IRS Agent Testimony Sheds Light on Intriguing Details
New revelations have emerged regarding President Joe Biden’s close association with the federal authorities investigating his son, Hunter Biden. IRS Special Agent Joseph Ziegler, assigned to the case, disclosed that the President even visited an FBI office during the investigation.
Ziegler’s recent testimony before the House Oversight Committee underscored the challenges faced in conducting the investigation in Delaware, where the Biden family enjoys significant recognition.
The President’s visit to the FBI office was reportedly a subject of humor among the investigative team.
Complications further arose when a Delaware magistrate judge had to recuse herself from the case due to inappropriate comments made during the signing of the initial electronic search warrant.
This setback resulted in a delay of four months as new warrants had to be prepared, and investigative steps had to be repeated.
Additionally, the investigation suffered a significant blow when Assistant US Attorney Jamie McCall, one of its leading prosecutors, departed for the private sector in early 2020. Ziegler described McCall as a diligent and no-nonsense attorney dedicated to upholding justice.
IRS whistleblowers, Ziegler, and his supervisor Gary Shapley reiterated their previous testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee, alleging that the Justice Department, under President Biden, intentionally slowed down the five-year probe into Hunter Biden’s alleged financial crimes.
They claimed that Biden-appointed US attorneys interfered in the case, preventing Delaware US Attorney David Weiss from pursuing tax fraud charges against Hunter Biden in Southern California and Washington, DC, last year.
However, both Weiss and Attorney General Merrick Garland have denied these allegations, asserting that Weiss possessed the authority to bring forth any necessary charges.
The IRS agents also asserted that federal authorities alerted Hunter’s legal team about a potential search of his storage locker in northern Virginia and a planned interview in December 2020, thereby thwarting both actions.
They further alleged that attempts to investigate the President’s involvement in his son’s international business dealings and pursue felony charges for $2.2 million in unpaid taxes were obstructed.
Moreover, the agents obtained a WhatsApp message from July 30, 2017, in which Hunter Biden referenced his father’s name to pressure a Chinese businessman into reportedly paying around $5 million to him and his associates.
Shapley and Ziegler, whose political affiliations are registered as Democrat and Republican, respectively, have served at the IRS for over a decade.
They emphasized that their whistleblowing had no personal gain and was solely driven by a commitment to transparency and justice.
On June 20, the office of US Attorney David Weiss announced that Hunter Biden had reached a plea deal limited to probation for two tax misdemeanors and a diversion agreement for a firearms charge.
The President’s son had evaded substantial tax payments in 2017 and 2018 and provided false information on a federal gun-purchase form in 2018, concealing his crack cocaine addiction at the time.
