A whistleblower from inside the Internal Revenue Service has spoken publicly for the first time about a highly sensitive political probe he has supervised, which CBS News has determined is the ongoing probe into the finances of President Biden's son Hunter Biden.
He said he became so concerned about prosecutors' handling of "a high profile, controversial" investigation that he felt duty-bound to sound alarms.
"There were multiple steps that were slow-walked — were just completely not done — at the direction of the Department of Justice," said Gary Shapley, a 14-year veteran of the agency, who spoke exclusively to CBS News chief investigative correspondent Jim Axelrod on Tuesday. "When I took control of this particular investigation, I immediately saw deviations from the normal process. It was way outside the norm of what I've experienced in the past."
The accusations come more than three years into an investigation into Hunter Biden that's being conducted in Delaware by a U.S. Attorney...
Six months ago, a leak from the FBI revealed that agents there believed they had provided prosecutors with enough evidence to support criminal tax charges. No such charges have been brought as of this publication.
Shapley is scheduled to appear before members of the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, but his testimony will not be open to the public.
pb's take for a while has been that "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap's" string pullers are engaged in the Swamp version of Dean Smith's Four Corners Offense to get the Former Trucker through the 024 election. Then, to let him crash and burn if it comes to that...
...then pull strings on Kammy.
And, honestly, the GOP continues to play a soft zone.
