Two IRS whistleblowers who have raised concerns about the handling of the investigation into Hunter Biden will testify before the House Oversight Committee on July 19. The individuals, identified as Gary Shapley and “Whistleblower X,” have alleged that the Justice Department failed to pursue evidence implicating Joe Biden, alerted Hunter Biden’s attorneys, and allowed certain charges to expire, leading to a favorable plea deal. House Oversight Chair James Comer expressed the need to address these allegations and shed light on the perceived unequal application of justice.
Gary Shapley, a seasoned 14-year IRS veteran, previously testified before the House Ways and Means Committee in May. He has highlighted obstacles he faced while attempting routine investigative procedures related to money trails involving references to President Joe Biden. Shapley claims that his efforts were hindered by a senior prosecutor associated with U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was leading the investigation.
The upcoming hearing provides an opportunity for the whistleblowers and other witnesses to share their insights and shed light on the potential misuse of federal law enforcement powers. This testimony aims to address concerns over a perceived dual system of justice and allows the American people to hear directly from these courageous individuals.
