Fourth IRS Agent Alleges Hunter Was Shielded
IRS officials testify that the Department of Justice (DOJ) blocked efforts to prosecute Hunter Biden in two jurisdictions, despite the IRS recommending charges. Four different witnesses, including two whistleblowers, have now confirmed that DOJ prosecutors in Washington, DC, and California, rejected charges against Joe Biden’s son, shielding him from prosecution.
During a House committee hearing on September 11th, IRS agent Darrell Waldon stated that efforts were made to charge Hunter Biden in Washington D.C. and California, but prosecutors in these jurisdictions did not agree to pursue the case. This revelation echoes the testimony of another IRS whistleblower, Gary Shapley, who stated in April that political interference in the DOJ prevented charges from being brought against Hunter Biden. Waldon, who used to supervise Shapley, further corroborated his claims by stating that prosecutors in Washington D.C. and California blocked efforts to charge Hunter Biden.
Waldon’s testimony comes after he previously confirmed Shapley's allegations in April, regarding interference from the DOJ. Shapley and his subordinate, Joseph Ziegler, also support this claim. Another IRS official, Director of Field Operations Michael Batdorf, also testified in September that the DOJ's tax division rejected efforts to charge Hunter Biden.
According to the testimony, the prosecutor in Washington D.C., Special Counsel David Weiss, had complete authority to pursue charges against Hunter Biden but was blocked by other officials in the DOJ. Attorney General Merrick Garland, who testified on Wednesday, denied that anyone had the authority to stop Weiss from pressing charges but acknowledged that officials could refuse to cooperate with him.

Shapley’s testimony led to the creation of a plea deal with Hunter Biden in Delaware, which was eventually dropped due to judicial scrutiny. However, Weiss did charge Hunter Biden in Delaware with three gun-related charges. Critics argue that these charges are minor in comparison to the potential tax violations and money laundering allegations that were being investigated in Washington D.C. and California.
The recent testimony by Waldon is significant as it contradicts Garland’s statement that no one had the power to block Weiss from bringing charges against Hunter Biden. The email exchange between Shapley and Waldon, along with Waldon’s response, further supports the claim that the DOJ blocked charges against Hunter Biden.
The revelations raise questions about potential political interference and whether the DOJ was protecting the President’s son from legal repercussions. Republicans have called for further investigations into the Department of Justice’s actions and have accused the Biden administration of a cover-up. Democrats, on the other hand, maintain that there was no wrongdoing and that the decision to drop the plea deal was made due to insufficient evidence.
The Department of Justice has not yet responded to these recent testimonies. However, with mounting evidence and growing public scrutiny, it is likely that their actions will continue to be called into question. The investigation into Hunter Biden’s financial dealings and potential tax violations remains ongoing, and it remains to be seen how this new testimony will affect the outcome of the case.
