Comer Says FBI Veteran Confirmed ‘Key’ Whistleblower Claims From Hunter Biden Case | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A former FBI supervisory agent confirmed "key" aspects of whistleblower testimony about the federal investigation of President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, according to a top Republican lawmaker.

    House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said the FBI veteran participated in a transcribed interview with his panel on Monday, just two days before a pair of Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers are set to testify about the inquiry.

    "Today, a former FBI supervisory special agent assigned to the FBI's Wilmington office and the Biden criminal investigation confirmed key portions of the IRS whistleblower's testimony," Comer said in a statement.

    "The night before the interview of Hunter Biden, both Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team were tipped off about the planned interview," Comer added. "On the day of the Hunter Biden interview, federal agents were told to stand by and could not approach Hunter Biden - they had to wait for his call. As a result of the change in plans, IRS and FBI criminal investigators never got to interview Hunter Biden as part of the investigation."

    Such claims line up with testimony from IRS officials, supervisory special agent Gary Shapley and a "Whistleblower X," who made disclosures to the House Ways and Means Committee that were released to the public last month: Plans by Shapley and FBI supervisory agent Joe Gordon to interview the younger Biden in early November 2020, shortly after the presidential election, were allegedly disrupted and gave way to Biden announcing publicly that he was under investigation.

    So far, the years-long investigation into the 53-year-old Hunter Biden has amounted to a plea deal for tax and gun violations that could keep him out of prison. A judge is set to hold a hearing on the agreement on July 26.


    But the whistleblower allegations have raised the prospect that the DOJ has slow-walked the Hunter Biden investigation, possibly for political reasons, and allowed the statute of limitations to run out on more serious charges that could have been brought in years that covered when he was working on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while his father was leading U.S. policy in Ukraine as vice president.

    Comer did not release any quotes in his Monday evening release, but he did share a list of "key takeaways":

  • "As part of the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, there were multiple witness interviews planned for December 8, 2020. IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley and the former FBI supervisory special agent were assigned to interview Hunter Biden.
  • On the evening of December 7, 2020, Shapley and the FBI supervisory special agent learned that FBI headquarters had notified Secret Service headquarters about the planned interview with Hunter Biden. Additionally, they learned the Biden transition team was notified about the planned interview. This was not the original plan by the career agents, which frustrated their investigative efforts because people found out who didn't need to know.
  • On December 8, 2020, Shapley and the FBI supervisory special agent were notified they would not be allowed to approach Hunter Biden's house and instead would have to wait near his residence until Hunter Biden contacted them.
  • The former FBI supervisory special agent told committee investigators he had never been told to wait outside to be contacted by the subject of an investigation.
  • As a result of these actions, Shapley and the former FBI supervisory special agent never interviewed Hunter Biden."

    Delaware's U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee, told House Republicans that he has been granted the "ultimate authority" in leading the inquiry, including when it comes to bringing charges. Attorney General Merrick Garland seemed to agree, testifying to Congress that Weiss "has full authority to ... bring cases in other districts if he needs to do that." And Biden's attorney, Chris Clark, has said "any suggestion the investigation was not thorough, or cut corners, or cut my client any slack, is preposterous and deeply irresponsible."


    Still, Comer indicated that he is not ready to let the matter go. "The Justice Department's efforts to cover up for the Bidens reveals a two-tiered system of justice that sickens the American people," he said in his statement. The Oversight Committee, along with the Judiciary Committee and Ways and Means Committee, will continue to seek the answers, transparency, and accountability that the American people demand and deserve."

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering that the 2024 Presidential Election has fully begun, and the Biden Administration has consequently fully weaponized the Biden DOJ /FBI to attack all political opponents under the penalty of felonious judgement for many of the same alleged crimes, or worse, committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden himself: Are you comfortable with this level of overt corruption within the Executive Branch?
  Yes; if Democratic Socialists are to complete the remaking of this "Democracy," the End will Always Justify the Means.
  No; in a Constitutional Republic, the Rule of Law is paramount, which means the law MUST be administered evenly
  Who cares; I am just so ambivalent to all this grown-up stuff.

Understanding that this fragile Republic of the self-governed is in a precarious space in our nation's vast history: What is your honor bound patriotic duty in helping to sustain the continuance of these United States of America?
  I will depend on my Democratic Socialist politicians to continue to march hard toward the Left to provide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all who think and do as they are told.
  I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and support all elected leaders who pledge to protect and insure the continued sovereignty of this Representative Republic.
  I am very concerned about maintaining my current life style without working. I was told that as long as I vote Democrat, I had nothing to worry about ... but now I worry.
