House committees issue subpoenas to uncover FBI, IRS special treatment of Hunter Biden

The House Committee on the Judiciary and House Committee on Ways and Means, pursing evidence of political interference in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s alleged tax crimes, issued subpoenas on Monday to key witnesses involved in a meeting that took place on Oct, 7, 2022.

During this meeting, now-Special Counsel David Weiss reportedly asserted that he was prevented from pursuing charges against Hunter Biden for tax offenses, according to the sworn whistleblower testimony.

The subpoenas target both Internal Revenue Service investigators and officials from the Biden Administration Department of Justice who were either present at the meeting or had direct knowledge of the proceedings. This move follows the committees’ prior attempts to obtain voluntary transcribed interviews from these crucial witnesses, which were rebuffed by the Department of Justice and the IRS.

In a joint statement, Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith of Missouri and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, said the committee, along with the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, have sought these interviews since IRS whistleblowers came forward with concerning allegations of political interference in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign influence peddling and tax evasion.

“Unfortunately, the Biden Administration has consistently stonewalled Congress,” the congressmen said.

The House Committees’ actions stem from allegations of special treatment in Hunter Biden’s case. The committees want to know whether President Biden’s son received preferential treatment from federal prosecutors and to determine the ultimate decision-maker in the matter.

They argue that transparency and accountability are paramount, particularly given the appointment of Special Counsel Weiss, the same U.S. Attorney who handled Hunter Biden’s plea deal and the troubled investigation into his purported tax infractions.

The core of the issue centers on the conflicting statements provided by U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware Weiss and Attorney General Merrick Garland. According to sworn whistleblower testimony, Weiss expressed that he lacked the authority to bring charges against Hunter Biden. Yet, Attorney General Garland had previously testified that Weiss had the necessary authority and control over the case.

Garland’s testimony timeline adds further complexity. In April 2022, he testified that U.S. Attorney Weiss was supervising the investigation without any possibility of political or improper interference. However, his statements came into question in March 2023 when he confirmed that Weiss possessed full authority to bring charges outside of Delaware without Special Counsel status.

The turning point in the investigation came when a proposed plea deal collapsed during a court hearing in Delaware. It was only at this juncture that Attorney General Garland designated Weiss as Special Counsel.

This sequence of events has raised doubts about the accuracy and completeness of the information provided to Congress.

The subpoenas have been directed towards prominent individuals involved in the investigation, including IRS Director of Field Operations Michael T. Batdorf, IRS Special Agent in Charge Darrell J. Waldon, FBI Special Agent in Charge Thomas J. Sobocinski, and FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Ryeshia Holley.

  1. Wow another dog and pony show for us dumb people. My guess is a lot of money and time for an issue that will be swept under the rug along with the rest of the crime family’s secrets. The politicians will put on a good show but in the end it will amount to another sell out like the budget. Big talkers little doers.

  2. Sadly this is yet another round of covering the crimes of the political elite class. It has been going on for so long. Sadly as we witness what is going on with President Trump, we can see exactly why we have no place to turn within the system to fix the flawed system. We saw the same non-sense in Georgia as the Inditement was posted to the Court Clerk’s web page before the Grand Jury even started deliberations last Monday. How many lies were told to try to cover up that mistake? The low and behold later that evening when the Grand Jury did turn in their charges, they were identical to the ones posted earlier in the day. Can you say the fix is in? Why isn’t there a judge stepping up and sounding the alarms? The fix is in. Just like it is here in Anchorage with this nasty Assembly that has been hounding the Mayor since day one. The uni- party Communist have their set goals and no one, but no one will stop them in their pursuit of maintaining power at all costs. The Communists’ in our government at all levels will never pay for their crimes, until We the People will fully unite and put an end to this once and for all.

  3. DOJ prosecutors were friends and co-workers of deceased Beau Biden. Their strategy is to prosecute Trump on baseless grounds and protect the real criminal …….. Joe Biden. It’s been a strategy in the works since Trump took office in 2017.

  4. Remind me again; how many new IRS agents was it that our dementia patient POTUS wanted to hire? 87,000 of them, you say?

    BTW, nice jheri curl job on cracky boy there. Always good to look your best when you’re smokin’ an pokin’. Where’s da Tina and my sis in law’s baby chile? It’s time for some struggle snuggle! The big guy says nobody f’s w/ a Biden but even my niece knows that’s not true.
