IRS agent Darrell Waldon has come forward as another whistleblower within the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), corroborating previous testimony provided by IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley. Both whistleblowers assert that federal prosecutors shielded Hunter Biden from charges in certain jurisdictions.
According to Waldon, now-special counsel David Weiss encountered obstacles in pursuing charges against Hunter Biden in Washington, D.C., and California, mirroring the claims made by Shapley. This information was reported by Breitbart News.
Mr. Weiss went to the U.S. Attorney’s Office — I can’t recall the dates — and they did not agree to prosecute the case in D.C.,” Waldon told the House Ways and Means Committee during a transcribed interview earlier this month, according to the Washington Examiner.
“I’m aware that it was presented to the District of Columbia and, at some point, the Central District of California, I believe,” he added.
Breitbart noted further:
Waldon’s transcribed interview comes after he previously confirmed Shapley’s claims in April of political interference. Waldon later left the Hunter Biden case for another responsibility within the IRS.
As the investigation progressed, Weiss never charged Hunter Biden in the jurisdictions of Washington, DC, or California. Instead, he formed a sweetheart plea agreement with Hunter Biden that collapsed in July under judicial scrutiny. Shapley’s testimony in April reportedly triggered the plea deal, filed in Delaware. Weiss later brought three gun-related charges in Delaware against Hunter Biden.
The recent testimony by Waldon, who was Shapley’s boss, is notable because Attorney General Merrick Garland testified Wednesday that nobody had the authority to block Weiss from charging Hunter Biden, though “they could refuse to partner with him.”
“You said [Weiss] had complete authority, but he’d already been turned down. He wanted to bring an action in D.C. and the US Attorney there said, ‘No, you can’t’ — and then you go tell the U.S. Senate, under oath, that he has complete authority?” House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked.
“No one had the authority to turn him down; they could refuse to partner with him,” Garland responded.
“You can use whatever language — ‘refuse to partner’ is turning down,” Jordan said.
“It is not the same under a well-known Justice Department practice,” Garland claimed.
Darrell Waldon is now the fourth whistleblower to step forward, expressing concerns about the Justice Department’s alleged protection of Hunter Biden from prosecution.
In August, a Democratic lawmaker, Rep. Jim Himes from Connecticut, publicly broke ranks with his party, stating his belief that Hunter Biden is “clearly” guilty of committing crimes. However, Himes also took the opportunity to criticize Republicans and former President Donald Trump while making his case.
“Let me say something that you never heard a Republican member of Congress say in the four years of the Trump administration, which is that if Hunter Biden broke the law, he should be prosecuted,” Himes told MSNBC. “And it is clear that he broke the law with respect to taxes and possibly the ownership of a handgun. He should be held accountable for that.”
“If he traded on his father’s influence, he should be held accountable for that. And I’m emphasizing this because you never, ever heard a Republican say the same thing about Donald Trump or his family,” Himes continued.
Himes further stated that no evidence linking Joe Biden to his son’s alleged crimes has been found. However, some Republicans have publicly claimed to have seen FBI documents from “highly credible” sources indicating that tens of millions of allegedly illicit funds were directed to both father and son. It’s important to note that these allegations have not been presented in court, and neither Joe Biden nor Hunter Biden has been charged with any crimes. Joe Biden has consistently maintained that he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings.
