Representative James Comer, a top-ranking Republican lawmaker, has revealed that a former FBI supervisory agent has confirmed significant elements of whistleblower testimony regarding the federal investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. The FBI veteran was part of a transcribed interview with Comer’s panel, which took place just days before two Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers are scheduled to testify about the same investigation.
Comer stated that the former FBI supervisory special agent, who was assigned to the FBI’s Wilmington office and the Biden criminal investigation, confirmed key parts of the IRS whistleblower’s testimony. The testimony revealed that both Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team were tipped off about the planned interview with Hunter Biden the night before it was scheduled to take place.
On the day of the interview, federal agents were instructed to stand by and could not approach Hunter Biden — they had to wait for his call. As a result of this change in plans, IRS and FBI criminal investigators never got to interview Hunter Biden as part of the investigation.
These claims align with testimony from IRS officials, supervisory special agent Gary Shapley and a “Whistleblower X,” who made disclosures to the House Ways and Means Committee that were released to the public last month. The plans by Shapley and FBI supervisory agent Joe Gordon to interview Hunter Biden were allegedly disrupted, leading to Hunter Biden publicly announcing that he was under investigation.
