Last week the Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee released the redacted transcripts from two IRS whistleblowers who described how the Justice Department slow-walked and obstructed the years-long investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals.
In his testimony, IRS criminal investigator Gary Shapley described the timeline of the investigation in detail and provided evidence showing the times the Justice Department, particularly Assistant US Attorney Leslie Wolf, slow-walked or obstructed search warrants, witness interviews, and other investigative tools.
According to Shapley’s testimony, AUSA Wolf blocked search warrants for a storage unit belonging to Hunter Biden and for Joe Biden’s Delaware home where Hunter was living at the time. Prosecutors even notified Hunter’s legal team in advance about the storage unit.
Shapley also revealed that his team was told that they would get into “hot water” if they tried to interview President Biden’s grandchildren.
According to Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, the swiftness with which every allegation about Donald Trump or his associates was investigated lies in stark contrast to the way the Justice Department dragged its feet on investigating the Biden family, Just the News reported.
Dershowitz told Just the News that this isn’t “necessarily Republicans versus Democrats.” Instead, he believes there has been a “separate system of justice” specifically for Donald Trump and those who are close to him.
According to Dershowitz, the plea deal arranged between federal prosecutors and Hunter Biden last week is not the biggest concern. What is more concerning is that the FBI failed to investigate and prosecute Hunter for the information on his abandoned laptop and the allegations of bribery involving an executive from Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings.
House Judiciary member Lance Gooden (R-TX) told Just the News that political bias has corrupted the FBI, with investigations being opened or not opened “based on the political preferences of those in charge.”
