Joe Biden is out of options. It’s only a matter of time before the boom is lowered.
And a whistleblower eviscerated Joe Biden in this incriminating interview.
Congressional Republicans have uncovered countless crimes that Joe Biden and his family have committed.
It’s worse than many could ever imagine.
The name of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower who claims the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden is being mishandled has been revealed.
Gary Shapley, a supervisory special agent, spoke on camera with CBS News on Wednesday night, less than a week after claiming that his whole team was abruptly pulled from the case at the request of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
“There were multiple steps that were slow-walked,” he said, insisting that this was done “at the direction of the Department of Justice.”

Shapley will not publicly identify the subject of the investigation, citing tax secrecy regulations, but media reports have indicated Hunter Biden is that person.
Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, announced shortly after the 2020 election that federal agents were investigating his tax troubles. The first son has stated that he expects to be exonerated. U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware is leading the inquiry.
Shapley, a 14-year IRS veteran, claims he was assigned to the case in January 2020 and began to voice concerns about “deviations” in the investigation by the summer. “Each and every time, it seemed to always benefit the subject,” he said.
“I just couldn’t, you know, fathom that DOJ might be acting unethically on this,” Shapley added.
It was revealed last month that Shapley was looking to make protected whistleblower disclosures to Congress and had previously contacted many inspectors general.
Lawyers for Shapley said their client had information that would “contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee,” referring to Attorney General Merrick Garland, who has pledged not to interfere with the investigation.
Shapley claims he began to feel retaliated against in October 2022, beginning with a meeting and then a phone call in which the U.S. attorney was informed that officials of the IRS and FBI were concerned about the case’s treatment.
Shapley’s team was then barred from prosecution negotiations, and his entire team was fired from the case last week, according to one of Shapley’s lawyers in a letter to the US Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal office entrusted with protecting whistleblowers.
When approached about the allegations of misconduct, the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware declined to comment.
IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel wrote to Congress to assure them that he has not “intervened” in any way that would jeopardize the status of any whistleblower. He also stated that in any situation involving federal judicial proceedings, the IRS “follows the direction of” the DOJ.
According to a letter provided to Congress by Shapley’s lawyers, the supervisor wants to appear for a private hearing with the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday.
Despite the fact that Shapley is a registered Republican and his lawyers have previously worked with Republicans in Congress, the supervisor told CBS News that the “egregiousness” of what he witnessed drove him to come forward.
“When taxpayers are treated differently — and subjects of investigations are treated differently,” Shapley said, “I don’t see how it doesn’t affect the fairness of the system.”
