(FixThisNation.com) – Two individuals who exposed confidential information came forward before a House panel and made claims about the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) advising the pursuit of serious tax charges against Hunter Biden. They also alleged that there was interference of a political nature in the investigation concerning the President’s son.
According to Gary Shapley, an IRS supervisory special agent, who testified and whose statement was made public on Thursday, the IRS recommended that Biden face charges of felony tax evasion and filing false tax returns.
Subsequently, court documents filed on Tuesday revealed that Biden agreed to plead guilty to two minor tax offenses and entered into a pretrial diversion agreement related to unlawful possession of a firearm while being dependent on a controlled substance.
Shapley’s opening statement to the House committee claimed that Biden was given “preferential treatment,” and he further criticized the Department of Justice for dragging out the investigation.
The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Representative Jason Smith (Republican-Missouri), remarked on Thursday that the whistleblowers’ testimonies implied that Biden had received favorable treatment during the course of the investigation, highlighting that the President’s son had reached a plea deal likely resulting in his avoidance of imprisonment.
On the other hand, Representative Richard Neal (Democrat-Massachusetts), the committee’s leading Democrat, dismissed the chairman’s allegations as “premature” and accused Republicans of hastily publicizing the findings, describing it as an abuse of power. Neal made these statements, as reported by CBS News, adding that “two interviews do not constitute a comprehensive investigation, particularly when more than 50 employees were mentioned, especially considering that one of them retracted key aspects of his testimony earlier this week.”
