IRS Whistleblower Fights Back: Names Additional Six Witnesses in Response to Garland’s Denial of Interference

The claims made by an IRS whistleblower about the Justice Department’s attempts to thwart felony recommendations against Hunter Biden were refuted on Friday by US Attorney General Merrick Garland.

On Thursday, the House Ways and Means Committee revealed harrowing depositions from two IRS whistleblowers describing allegations of Biden misconduct.

The Justice Department’s efforts to thwart search warrants and hide Hunter Biden’s tax offenses were revealed to lawmakers by the two IRS whistleblowers.

Additionally, the informants verified that Joe Biden had a direct hand in Hunter’s international business dealings.

Joe Biden met with representatives from CEFC, a Chinese energy business, according to Gary Shapely, one of the whistleblowers who confirmed this to the authorities.

Additionally, Shapely stated Hunter Biden threatened his Chinese business partner while demanding payment using WhatsApp messenger and using his father’s influence as leverage.

According to the IRS whistleblower, Hunter Biden sent Henry Zhao the following WhatsApp message:

“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my directions. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”

The allegations made by whistleblowers directly conflict with Merrick Garland’s under oath claims regarding the independence of the Justice Department.

Merrick Garland has asserted repeatedly that the DOJ did not prevent US Attorney David Weiss from pursuing Hunter Biden vigorously.

“Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump as the US attorney in Delaware and assigned this matter during the previous administration, would be permitted to continue his investigation and to make a decision to prosecute any way in which he wanted to and in any district in which he wanted to,” Garland stated at a press conference on Friday.

“Mr. Weiss has since sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee confirming that he had that authority. I don’t know how it would be possible for anybody to block him from bringing a prosecution, given that he has this authority,” Garland explained.

Gary Shapley, the whistleblower, retaliated after Garland disputed the allegations and accused him of lying by naming six additional witnesses to show that it was Garland who was not speaking the truth.

By means of his lawyers, Gary Shapley stated:

“In an October 7, 2022, meeting at the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office, U.S. Attorney David Weiss told six witnesses he did not have authority to charge in other districts and had thus requested special counsel status. Those six witnesses include Baltimore FBI Special Agent in Charge Tom Sobocinski and Assistant Special Agent in Charge Ryeshia Holley, IRS Assistant Special Agent in Charge Gary Shapley and Special Agent in Charge Darrell Waldon, who also independently and contemporaneously corroborated Mr. Shapley’s account in an email, now public as Exhibit 10, following p. 148 of his testimony transcript. Mr. Shapley would have no insight into why Mr. Weiss’s would make these statements at the October 7, 2022 meeting if they were false. That Mr. Weiss made these statements is easily corroborated, and it is up to him and the Justice Department to reconcile the evidence of his October 7, 2022 statements with contrary statements by Mr. Weiss and the Attorney General to Congress.”

IRS Agent Gary Shapley’s defense team released the following statement:
“In an October 7, 2022, meeting at the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office, U.S. Attorney David Weiss told six witnesses he did not have authority to charge in other districts and had thus requested special counsel status. Those six…

In an indirect sense, former president Trump may have some influence on what happens to Hunter Biden regarding a plea agreement he got with federal prosecutors last week.

Biden made arrangements to enter guilty pleas to two tax-related misdemeanors and a charge involving an unauthorized weapons purchase, which is typically a felony. Others who had engaged in similar crimes, in this case giving false information on a federal background check form, have received prison sentences.

Of course, this is Democrat Joe Biden’s son.

The plea agreement was made through David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, whose office claimed it is still looking into Biden’s gun acquisition. In a statement, Weiss pointed out that “from on or about October 12, 2018, through October 23, 2018, Hunter Biden possessed a firearm despite knowing he was an unlawful user of and addicted to a controlled substance.”

Regarding the tax fines, for the years 2017 and 2018, Biden failed to pay income tax on incomes of approximately $1.5 million annually. CNN stated earlier this week that Biden would show up at some time to enter a guilty plea to the charges.
