Whistleblower: FBI Protected Hunter Biden

(DCWatchdog.com) – The FBI shielded Hunter Biden from prosecution and continues to do so, according to a former federal agent and a leaked letter meant to prevent him from giving answers to the US Congress, reports reveal.

In a testimony to the GOP-led House Oversight Committee, the former FBI supervisory agent, whose identity hasn’t been revealed publicly, said President Joe Biden’s transition team had been tipped off that he would be interviewed on December 8, 2020, under the years-long investigation into his affairs.

The then-agent, who worked for the FBI’s field office in Wilmington, Delaware, was supposed to interrogate Hunter Biden together with Gary Shapley, the IRS special investigator, a whistleblower on the case together with his newly-revealed subordinate, Joe Ziegler. However, the interrogation never happened.

According to the unnamed former agent, whose transcribed interview was announced by the House Oversight Committee, both the Biden transition team and the Secret Service headquarters got tipped off the night before Hunter Biden’s 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. As a result of these actions, Shapley and the former FBI supervisory special agent never interviewed Hunter Biden,” the House Oversight Committee said, cited by The National Review.

“The Justice Department’s efforts to cover up for the Bidens reveals a two-tiered system of justice that sickens the American people,” Oversight chairman James Comer (R-KY) said in a statement.

Meanwhile, a New York Post report leaked a letter the former FBI agent-turned-whistleblower received from the Bureau’s top lawyer the night before his congressional testimony, warning him to keep quiet on specific questions.

“[T]he Department expects that you will decline to respond to questions seeking non-public information likely covered by one or more components of executive privilege or other significant confidentiality interests, in particular information about deliberations or ongoing investigative activity in law enforcement matters,” FBI general counsel Jason Jones wrote to the former supervisory agent.

A source told the Post that the FBI had been aware of the whistleblower’s upcoming testimony for several days before it took place on Monday. Yet, Jones sent him the seemingly threatening letter only on Sunday afternoon, less than 24 hours earlier.
