Whistleblower testimony puts pressure on judge to reject Hunter Biden plea deal

by ian


The case against Hunter Biden continues to grow, and now conservatives are placing pressure on a federal judge to reject the plea deal under which Biden will admit to failing to pay taxes in multiple years.

If the plea deal is accepted, the president’s son would escape prison time, but two IRS whistleblowers claim that the Justice Department sabotaged the investigation into more serious crimes.

One of those whistleblowers is IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapely, who said Wednesday that federal prosecutors blocked and sabotaged lawful search warrants.

Shapely says that U.S. Attorney David Weiss supported charging Biden with felonies for evading taxes on $2.2 million. But Weiss didn’t have the authority to place those charges without special counsel approval, which the DOJ denied.

Attorney General Merrick Garland claims there was no interference, but Shapely isn’t backing down.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) now wants to see the plea deal thrown out.
