“The Department of Justice initiated the Biden family coverup, and now DHS, under the leadership of Secretary Mayorkas, is complicit in it.” the Oversight Committee said on Tuesday.
“IRS whistleblowers provided testimony regarding misconduct during the Hunter Biden criminal investigation, including FBI Headquarters tipping off Secret Service Headquarters and the Biden transition team about the planned Hunter Biden interview. Following these actions, the interview of Hunter Biden did not occur.” they said.
“These allegations were backed up by the former FBI supervisory special agent who was assigned to interview Hunter Biden.” House Republicans said. “After months of obstruction by DHS and the Secret Service, James Comer is issuing six subpoenas.”

Hunter Biden was initially charged with two misdemeanors related to unpaid taxes from 2017 and 2018. However, according to IRS whistleblowers who spoke to lawmakers, Joe Biden’s DOJ blocked two search warrants and multiple felony charges against Hunter Biden.
Gary Shapley, an IRS whistleblower, testified that the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office, Department of Justice Tax Division, and Department of Justice gave preferential treatment and unchecked conflicts of interest in their investigation into the President’s son.
Furthermore, Shapley revealed that an Assistant US Attorney in Delaware rejected a search warrant for Joe Biden’s Delaware home in 2020 and blocked another search warrant for Hunter Biden’s storage locker. Additionally, federal agents were instructed not to approach Hunter Biden.
The Biden transition team was TIPPED OFF about the planned Hunter Biden interview.
