Top House Republicans Threaten AG Merrick Garland: ‘We Will Not Tolerate Any Retaliatory Conduct by the Department Against These or Any Other Whistleblowers’

Top House Republicans have recently urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to come forward regarding any potential investigations launched by the Justice Department into Biden family whistleblowers.

The probe into the Department of Justice (DOJ) underscores the ongoing House impeachment inquiry”s investigation into President Joe Biden and his family members involved in the Biden business.

“The Committees will not tolerate any retaliatory conduct by the Department against these or any other whistleblowers,” Judiciary Committee chair Jim Jordan (R-OH), Oversight Committee chair James Comer (R-KY), and Ways and Means Committee chair Jason Smith (R-MO) wrote Garland this week:

Whistleblowers play an integral role in identifying and rooting out waste, fraud, abuse, mismanagement, and corruption within federal agencies. Federal law protects whistleblowers from retaliation.

Any efforts, including those by the Department, to investigate whistleblowers for making lawful disclosures raise serious concerns about the continued weaponization of the federal government.

Any and all attempts to intimidate or retaliate against Mr. Shapley and Mr. Ziegler for their protected disclosures to Congress must stop.

Two whistleblowers from the IRS have revealed politically damaging information about the Biden administration and the Biden family business:

  • Alleged Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf refused to allow investigators to ask about Joe Biden being “the big guy”
  • Alleged the DOJ twice prevented U.S. Attorney David Weiss from bringing stronger charges against Hunter
  • Alleged Garland refused to name a special counsel in the tax investigation
  • Alleged the IRS recommended charges against Hunter that were not approved by Garland

Following the revelations made to Congress, attorneys representing Hunter Biden reportedly pressured the DOJ to pursue legal action against IRS whistleblowers. In June, the committee voted to release several instances of alleged political interference, in which the DOJ “thwarted, hampered or interfered” the IRS tax investigation into Hunter Biden.

The House initiated an investigation into the Bidens in November 2022. Throughout the probe, investigators uncovered a sprawling network of wire transfers, 20 shell companies, and associates who helped the Biden family business accumulate a minimum of $24 million from foreign nationals over roughly five years.

They also disclosed that Joe Biden received payments from James and Hunter Biden. Furthermore, they demonstrated that nine other family members received funds from the Bidens’ foreign business ventures, including two of Joe Biden’s grandchildren.
