A word to those on the left:
I don’t want to hear even one more time from you that “no one is above the law.” Just spare us all, and stop defending the indefensible. You just look ridiculous, because at this point there can be no doubt that those who are members of the favored political class get kid-glove treatment. It’s been going on for years, but the latest revelations about the so-called “investigation” into Hunter Biden’s finances leave no room for argument.
On Monday, committee staff for the House Oversight and Accountability Committee conducted a transcribed interview with a former FBI supervisory special agent from the Wilmington office who’d been assigned to the Biden criminal investigation. According to a statement released Monday evening by Kentucky Rep. James Comer, committee chairman, he “confirmed key portions” of the IRS whistleblower testimony. It shows the Biden investigation was a joke.
The night before a planned interview of Hunter Biden, the FBI agent said, Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team were tipped off about it. “On the day of the Hunter Biden interview,” Comer said, “federal agents were told to stand by and could not approach Hunter Biden --- they had to wait for his call. As a result of the change in plans, IRS and FBI investigators never got to interview Hunter Biden as part of the investigation.”
The interview of Hunter, which was supposed to be led by IRS agents-now-whistleblowers Gary Shapley and this FBI supervisory special agent, was to be one of several conducted on December 8, 2020, a date that fell during the transition period before Biden’s inauguration. The evening before, these two agents learned that FBI headquarters had notified Secret Service headquarters about it. The agents told the Oversight Committee that this had frustrated their investigative efforts because “people found out who didn’t need to know.”
The next day, the two agents were told that they would not be allowed to approach Hunter’s house --- that they would have to wait until HE contacted THEM. (Editorial aside: !!!!)
The FBI agent testified that this was the first time in his career that he had been told to wait outside to be contacted by the subject of an investigation.
Needless to say, Hunter never contacted them at all. So the interview never took place.
So there really can be no doubt that whistleblower Gary Shapley was telling the truth. He testified that two search warrants had been blocked: one seeking corporate documents from Hunter’s storage locker and another for Joe Biden’s Delaware residence when Hunter was living there. As you know, Delaware U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf nixed the warrant for Joe’s home, citing “the optics.” Again, these decisions were made AFTER the election, so any concern about an investigation within 60 days of an election would be moot. Here’s what AMERICAN GREATNESS reported on Shapley’s testimony in June about career prosecutors slow-walking the Biden investigation...
Shapley also testified about an interview with Biden family associate Rob Walker in which Walker described how Joe Biden had dropped by a meeting with CEFC at the Four Seasons. Walker said he’d heard Hunter speak of other times in which his dad, still Vice President, would come to their business meetings.
The whistleblowers’ testimony confirmed earlier reporting from John Solomon at JUST THE NEWS.
Solomon appeared Monday night on HANNITY to comment on this latest confirmation, after writing that this FBI agent’s testimony “provides fresh evidence of alleged political interference in the treatment of Joe Biden’s son.”
“More of the portrait is just becoming more and more clear to the American public,” Solomon told Sean Hannity. “There absolutely was political interference in the investigation into Hunter’s taxes” and possibly more.
“There are three agents now with about a half century of experience in law enforcement telling Congress that nothing about the Hunter Biden investigation was normal.”
It’s “pretty bombshell testimony,” he said, as it corroborates “some of the most important testimony that Gary Shapley and his fellow IRS agent --- whose name has not yet been released --- gave Congress a month ago.”
On Wednesday, he said, both these IRS agents will be testifying in public, so we’ll learn the name of the second one as we meet them both. And next week, things heat up even more, as Hunter’s former business partner Devon Archer is expected to testify before Congress. “Getting a Biden insider to flip is a very important moment in this investigation,” he said.
Here are Solomon’s updates from last night…
The DAILY CALLER reported on this as well. Their story also contains a link to the hilariously-titled report, “Hunter Biden’s lawyers demand Donald Trump alter his language on social media.” We’re thinking it’s time for Hunter’s lawyers to ditch the hyper-aggressive approach and go crawl into a hole.
If you haven’t seen Shapley answering questions, BREITBART’s story includes the video of his interview with CBS NEWS. The fact that CBS was giving him airtime strongly suggests they’ve been given the message from...somewhere...that it’s time to start taking down the Bidens.
Comer tweeted on Sunday that the Oversight Committee knows from Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) and subpoenaing banks and individuals that the Bidens set up more than 20 shell companies to accept, forward and collect payment from a wide range of business associates. These “make absolutely no sense,” he said. “I don’t believe they have paid a penny of revenue, a penny of taxes on most of the millions of dollars they received from our adversaries around the world.”
BREITBART has a good summary, including the Oversight Committee’s timeline for the Bidens’ influence peddling in Romania…
Dan Bongino, who worked for the Secret Service for over a decade, had more to say on Monday about the non-investigation of cocaine found in the West Wing of the White House. (Notice that we’re including this story with the Biden investigations.) He said he’d received numerous texts and emails from former colleagues --- “good guys, man” --- and that they’re “absolutely furious” about this, saying it’s “embarrassing, humiliating.” They say they know exactly who left the coke.
As you know, the Secret Service closed the case with no leads and without even interviewing anyone, Hunter included. They still insist they found no fingerprints or DNA evidence on the baggie of coke found in a locker near the Situation Room, where guests place belongings before going on White House tours. It just happened to be “in a blind spot for surveillance cameras,” according to CNN.
According to the Secret Service, there were about 500 potential culprits and it would have been “a strain on resources” for them to conduct interviews. Nobody buys that. In fact, Bongino says that in this “limited access area,” there were probably fewer than 200 people who could have left the drugs. And it’s not hard to get a latent print off a non-porous plastic surface. As for DNA, recall that a murderer was recently captured after his DNA was recovered from a discarded piece of pizza. (It can even be extracted from desiccated old fossils, for goodness sake, which means it might be possible to retrieve DNA from JOE Biden, haha.)
“Don’t destroy this agency like they did the FBI,” Bongino said. “It’s really unbecoming.”
