Members of the House Judiciary and Ways and Means committees are demanding that FBI and IRS agents who sat in on a key meeting that was said to have exposed special treatment for Hunter Biden testify before Congress. 

According to the Daily Mail, Jim Jordan and Jason Smith say that four agents have knowledge of a meeting that took place on October 7, 2022, in which David Weiss allegedly said he was not the "deciding person" on whether charges would be filed against Hunter Biden, despite being the top prosecutor in the case. Two FBI agents and two IRS agents have been subpoenaed as a result.

According to The Hill, those subpoenaed were IRS Director of Field Operations Michael T Batdorf, IRS special agent in charge Darrell J Waldon, FBI special agent in charge Thomas J Sobocinski, and FBI assistant special agent in charge Ryeshia Holley.

Waldon, Sobocinski, and Holley were said to have attended the October meeting, while Batdorf had "direct knowledge" of the meeting after receiving an email from Shapley detailing what had happened.

IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley made the claim during his testimony, saying that he had raised concerns during the meeting but was shut out from the case two weeks later.

During this October meeting, Shapley claimed that Weiss said he was blocked by Biden appointees in DC and California from bringing charges against Hunter.

In a July letter through, Weiss insisted that he had "never been denied the authority to bring charges in any jurisdiction."

Weiss was appointed as special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation earlier this month by Attorney General Merrick Garland, and had been investigating the Biden son since 2018.

“Our Committees, along with the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, have sought these interviews since IRS whistleblowers came forward with concerning allegations of political interference in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign influence peddling and tax evasion,” Jordan and Smith said in a statement on Monday. 

"Unfortunately, the Biden Administration has consistently stonewalled Congress. Our duty is to follow the facts wherever they may lead, and our subpoenas compelling testimony from Biden Administration officials are crucial to understanding how the President’s son received special treatment from federal prosecutors and who was the ultimate decision maker in the case,” Jordan and Smith said. “Americans deserve to know the truth, especially now that Attorney General Garland has appointed as special counsel the same U.S. Attorney who oversaw Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal and botched the investigation into his alleged tax crimes."
