(FixThisNation.com) – Committees in the House, specifically Judiciary and Ways and Means, dispatched subpoenas on Monday. The targets were several FBI and IRS officials suspected of participation in the probe into Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son.
These committees are insisting on hearing from four particular officials who played roles in the extended probe by the Justice Department concerning the financial activities of the president’s son.
Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Jason Smith (MO) jointly expressed their frustration. They claim the current administration has been less than cooperative with congressional inquiries relating to Hunter Biden.
Highlighting their determination, these House GOP leaders stated, “Our responsibility is to uncover the whole truth. We need to determine if any preferential treatments were given to the president’s son by federal prosecutors, and who made pivotal decisions.”
Furthermore, they commented on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to appoint the U.S. Attorney previously involved in Hunter Biden’s case, raising concerns about its potential implications.
Earlier, in June, the same leaders, including Oversight Chairman James Comer, initiated a probe alleging undue influence in this notable case.
According to information provided by an IRS insider, Gary Shapley, David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware and primary figure in the Hunter Biden case, allegedly commented in an October 7, 2022, meeting that he wasn’t the lone authority on charging decisions against Hunter. Shapley also suggested that Weiss experienced pushback in his attempts to press charges. These claims, however, faced denials from Weiss and the Justice Department.
Shapley, along with another IRS official named Joe Ziegler, reported to Congress a perceived reluctance and delay in actions concerning the Hunter Biden investigation, tracing back to periods before the 2020 election.
The recent subpoenas target several officials, including Michael T. Batdorf from the IRS, Darrell J. Waldon from the IRS, and FBI’s Thomas J. Sobocinski, among others. These professionals are believed to possess key insights into an October assembly. As of now, there’s been no comment from the IRS, the legal team for Hunter Biden, or the FBI.
