Darrell Waldon, an IRS agent, agreed with Gary Shapley, an IRS whistleblower, that attorneys in Washington, DC, and California had stopped David Weiss, who is now the special counsel, from charging Hunter Biden in those places.
According to the Washington Examiner, Waldon informed the House Ways and Means Committee in a recorded interview in September, “Mr. Weiss made a visit to the U.S. Attorney’s Office—I can’t remember the dates—and they were against the decision to prosecute the case in D.C.”
“I know that it was submitted to the District of Columbia and, I think, the Central District of California at one point,” he said.
Waldon’s recorded interview comes after he agreed with Shapley’s claims of political influence in April. Waldon later quit the Hunter Biden case to take on a different job at the IRS.
Weiss never prosecuted Hunter Biden in the states of Washington, DC, or California as the case went on. He instead made a nice deal with Hunter Biden, but it fell apart in July when the courts looked closely at it. According to reports, Shapley’s statement in April led to the plea deal, which was made in Delaware. After that, Weiss charged Hunter Biden with three gun-related crimes in Delaware.
Shapley’s boss, Waldon, recently testified. This is important because this week, AG Merrick Garland said that no one could stop Weiss from charging Hunter Biden, but “they could choose not to partner with him.”
“You said Weiss had full power, but he had previously been turned down.” He wanted to file a lawsuit in D.C., but the US Attorney there told him “No, you can’t.” Then he went and swore to the U.S. Senate that he had full power. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who is the head of the House Oversight Committee, asked.
“No one could speak out against him; they could refuse to work with him.” Garland answered.
Jordan answered, “You can use any language you want—’refuse to partner’ is turning down.”
