Exclusive: Jim Jordan Demands Info from DOJ on IRS Whistleblower Removed from Hunter Biden Case

Ashley Oliver25 May 2023Washington, DC146

House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) demanded documents from the Justice Department on Friday related to allegations that the department retaliated against an IRS whistleblower investigating Hunter Biden.

Jordan told Attorney General Merrick Garland in a letter obtained by Breitbart News that he is seeking information about the removal of an “IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent and investigative team” from a “‘high-profile, controversial’ ongoing investigation.”

“The timing of the Department’s removal of the agent and investigative team raises serious concerns given that the investigation was the subject of the agent’s protected whistleblower disclosure,” Jordan wrote.

The letter comes in response to attorneys for the supervisory special agent, who later revealed his identity in a CBS interview as 14-year IRS veteran Gary Shapley, asking Congress to investigate Shapley’s removal from the case as potential unlawful whistleblower retaliation.

Shapley told CBS that he had been assigned to a “high-profile investigation” in January 2020, which Breitbart News confirmed from a source familiar is related to a years-long federal probe into Hunter Biden’s taxes.

Shapley is being represented by Empower Oversight, a firm launched by former Republican aides that works to protect whistleblowers. Empower Oversight alerted Congress on May 15 that Shapley and the rest of his investigative team had been removed from the case at the direction of the Justice Department, according to a letter obtained by Breitbart News.
