Key Highlights From the IRS Whistleblowers’ Congressional Testimony

Written by David E. Smith

There is a good chance that you missed the big news out of Washington D.C. this week with the testimony of two IRS whistleblowers who testified at a U.S. House Oversight Committee hearing on July 19, 2023. According to an article by News Busters, the so-called “mainstream” media failed to cover this important probe into the slow-walked Hunter-Biden investigation. The following introduction and the two-part report from U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and U.S. Representative James Comer (R-KY) give us a “deep dive” into the story from inside the Beltway.


It all centers around the testimony of whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, who allege that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) interfered in the tax investigation of Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

Shapley is a supervisory special agent with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division. He testified that he and other IRS investigators had recommended charging Hunter-Biden with far more serious crimes than what he has agreed to plead guilty to. However, Shapley said that the DOJ intervened and pressured the IRS to drop the charges.

Ziegler is a 13-year IRS special agent with the Criminal Investigation Division. He testified that he witnessed federal prosecutors deviating from normal procedures in the Hunter-Biden investigation. He also said that he was retaliated against after he raised concerns about the investigation.

The testimony of the two IRS whistleblowers has reignited a new push for potential impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Merrick Garland. U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, once again, said that he is open to an impeachment inquiry if the whistleblowers’ claims hold up.

We highly recommend watching/listening to part one and to part two of this special episode of “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast to learn more about this very serious issue. As usual, the podcast is moderated by Ben Ferguson.
