Former FBI Agent Confirms Bidens Were Tipped Off Ahead Of Bureau’s Hunter Interview
A retired FBI agent has testified that during the 2020 campaign, the Biden campaign received advance notice of the ongoing Hunter Biden investigation by the agency. The House Oversight Committee revealed documents that highlight the FBI agent’s testimony during a July hearing. The investigation into Hunter Biden, the president’s son, has faced claims of partisan interference by whistleblowers aiming to divert attention and reduce charges.
The transcript description, as per X, discloses that the House Oversight Committee asserts that both the FBI and IRS were directed to refrain from action until Hunter Biden contacted them for an interview, which ultimately never took place. The FBI Special Supervisory Agent, along with IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, expressed their dissatisfaction with the Biden campaign’s advance notice, deeming it inappropriate. The agent further alleged that they were instructed not to approach Hunter Biden’s residence until he initiated contact, a departure from their usual procedure.
The original plan entailed notifying the local field office of the Secret Service on the morning of the interview to limit external notifications. However, FBI headquarters had already notified Secret Service headquarters, altering the approach. The agent explained that they were directed not to approach Hunter Biden’s house and instead provide their information for the Secret Service to convey their interest in an interview.
The Oversight Committee concluded its posts by expressing skepticism toward U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who recently gained special counsel powers from U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland. These expanded powers allow Weiss to investigate matters outside of his Delaware district, a move prompted by concerns over potential political bias in other districts where Hunter Biden is alleged to have committed crimes. Currently, Hunter Biden’s legal team is renegotiating a plea deal with federal prosecutors after the initial agreement, which would have spared him prison time, fell through. This negotiation comes as the White House seeks to portray the investigation as devoid of political interference, coinciding with ongoing legal actions involving former President Donald Trump and the approaching election, in which Trump is a prominent contender against President Biden.
