The House Ways & Means Committee recently unveiled documents indicating that the U.S. Department of Justice had instructed FBI and IRS officials to omit mentions of President Biden from a search warrant in relation to a Foreign Agents Registration Act investigation.
These revelations were brought forth through documents shared by IRS informants Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, strengthening their prior claims. The committee has expressed its concerns, suggesting that there might have been attempts by the Biden Administration to mislead the public and obstruct federal inquiries to safeguard the Biden family.
An email from August 2020 by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf directed officials to exclude any mentions of a “Political Figure 1” in a search warrant. Later documents identified President Biden as this figure.
A separate document clarifies that “Political Figure 1” refers to Joe Biden, who, at that time, was running for president and had previously served as Vice President under Barack Obama. This document implies Hunter Biden was the main subject of the investigation.
It has also been made known that Hunter Biden is being investigated for potential Foreign Agents Registration Act violations. Informants Shapley and Ziegler claimed that Wolf tried to curtail questions involving President Biden during the Hunter Biden investigation, a move that faced resistance from FBI and IRS representatives.
Moreover, the committee emphasized that the probe into Hunter Biden seemed to be intentionally decelerated. They highlighted instances where investigators were allegedly restricted in their lines of questioning, including inquiries about Joe Biden’s possible involvement in Hunter Biden’s deals and potential campaign finance irregularities.
Committee Chairman Jason Smith stated that the disclosed details depict a closer link between Joe Biden’s role and Hunter Biden’s international business undertakings. Smith accentuated that these documents suggest a trend where Hunter Biden established businesses to mask foreign payments.
An assistant relayed to the media that between 2014 and 2019, the Biden family and associates received over $24 million in payments from abroad.
Smith, currently spearheading an impeachment examination into President Biden with other House committee chairpersons, emphasized that they would continue their scrutiny transparently. He declared their commitment to unearthing the truth for the American populace.
These disclosures are part of the formal impeachment investigation into President Biden by the House Republicans. The House Oversight Committee has scheduled its inaugural public session related to this inquiry.
Sharon Yang, a representative for the White House, criticized the disclosed documents, remarking that there was no concrete proof implicating President Biden in any malfeasance. Yang urged House Republicans to concentrate on more urgent national concerns.
