The attorney for IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley has called for a special counsel to investigate David Weiss, who is leading the investigations into Hunter Biden.
Special Counsel Weiss was appointed by Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate the allegations into the first son.
Following the indictment of Hunter Biden on multiple tax-related charges earlier this week, many believe that Weiss is acting in the best interest of the White House, rather than seeking justice.
During an appearance on Friday’s broadcast of “Ingraham Angle” on Fox News, Shapley’s lawyer Tristan Leavitt blasted the recent indictment of Hunter Biden.
Leavitt stated that the indictment vindicates Shapley and fellow whistleblower Joseph Ziegler.
The move “shows that that plea deal was nothing but a slap on the wrist,” Leavitt noted.
As Slay News reported, Hunter Biden was offered a cushy plea deal from DOJ prosecutors.
However, the deal fell apart when the judge discovered that a clause giving Hunter Biden blanket immunity on all future charges had been secretly snuck into the agreement.
After the sweetheart deal crumbled, Hunter Biden was forced to plead not guilty to the charges.
Leavitt is now arguing that there should be a special counsel investigation of the conduct of Weiss throughout the Hunter Biden case.
Ziegler said Shapley “feels vindicated, both he and Joseph Ziegler really took a huge risk in coming forward.
“They did it because, at the beginning of this year, it seemed like the case was dead, notwithstanding these very strong findings they brought forward.
“But this absolutely vindicates the claims that they made, which were doubted by so many, in part because they were released to the public right as the Justice Department announced the sweetheart plea deal.
“So, this clearly shows that that plea deal was nothing but a slap on the wrist.
“And the stunning facts that are in this indictment really also vindicate the investigative work of these agents.”
He added that “the allegations that the whistleblowers brought forward weren’t just about Hunter Biden.
“That’s not why the whistleblowers came forward.
“It was because the DOJ tried to cover all of this up.
“And so, David Weiss right now is a Special Counsel, but we still believe there needs to be a special counsel to investigate his office’s actions because he’s the one that completely turned around after interacting with Biden administration officials and tried to brush this under the rug.”
