GOP Subpoenas Multiple Agents Involved In Hunter Biden Case

Several FBI and IRS personnel who worked on the Hunter Biden probe have been sent subpoenas by the House Judiciary and Ways and Means committees.

Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss is said to have told the four top IRS and FBI officials that he could not bring federal charges against Hunter Biden until the latter left the state.

Michael Batdorf (IRS Director of Field Operations), Charge Darrell Waldon (FBI Special Agent), Tom Sobocinski (FBI Assistant Special Agent), and Ryeshia Holley (Assistant Special Agent) are the four individuals identified in the subpoenas issued by the two Republican-led committees.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Missouri) issued a joint statement in which they claimed their respective committees had “sought these interviews” ever since suspicions of political meddling first surfaced.

The message referred to “Our Committees.” Since IRS whistleblowers have come out with troubling claims of political intervention in investigating Hunter Biden’s overseas influence peddling and tax fraud, the Committee on Oversight and Accountability and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have requested these interviews.

The Biden Administration has repeatedly ignored congressional requests, unfortunately. We have a responsibility to investigate thoroughly and have issued subpoenas for the testimony of critical members of the Biden Administration who may shed light on why federal prosecutors gave the President’s son preferential treatment and who made the final decision in this matter.

The Chairmen have initiated an inquiry into what they believe to be systemic, inappropriate meddling in the Hunter Biden case, and they have been joined by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky).

Weiss allegedly informed six people in 2022 that he could not choose to prosecute Hunter Biden outside of Delaware, according to testimony given by Gary Shapley in a deposition before the House Ways and Means Committee on May 26.

According to him, the prosecution was thwarted by U.S. Attorneys nominated by Joe Biden.

Attorney General Merrick Garland had said under oath to Congress that he had given Weiss complete discretion over whether to press charges against Hunter; thus, this statement ran counter to his testimony.

According to Shapley, Weiss also claimed that his requests to file charges in numerous jurisdictions had been rebuffed on many occasions.

Shapley and another IRS employee have claimed that there has been a practice of “slow-walking investigative measures,” which Weiss and the Justice Department have both rejected.

After Garland designated Weiss as Special Counsel in the Hunter Biden probe, subpoena letters began to be sent out more than a week later.
