Comer, Jordan, Smith Seek Over a Dozen Transcribed Interviews Related to Agency Misconduct in Hunter Biden Investigation

WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) today are calling on senior leaders at the U.S. Department of Justice, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and U.S. Secret Service (USSS) to make over a dozen employees available for transcribed interviews who possess information concerning allegations of politicization and misconduct at their agencies with respect to the investigation of Hunter Biden.  

“The federal government is supposed to work for the American people, but whistleblower evidence shows that several federal employees were working overtime to cover up for the Bidens. We need to hear from these federal employees and other witnesses about this weaponization of federal law enforcement power. Americans are counting on us to ensure bad actors are held accountable and restore the equal enforcement of the law,” said Chairmen Comer, Jordan, and Smith.

From recent testimony before the Ways and Means Committee, IRS whistleblowers revealed extensive politicization and misconduct at the Department of Justice and IRS during the investigation into Hunter Biden. According to whistleblower testimony, the Justice Department refused to follow evidence that implicated Joe Biden; tipped off Hunter Biden’s attorneys, the Secret Service, and Biden transition team; allowed the clock to run out with respect to certain charges; and put tax-cheat Hunter Biden on the path towards a sweetheart plea deal.

In the letters, Chairmen Comer, Jordan, and Smith request transcribed interviews with the following federal employees:

  • Lesley Wolf, DOJ                              
  • Jack Morgan, DOJ
  • Mark Daly, DOJ
  • Matthew Graves, DOJ
  • E. Martin Estrada, DOJ
  • David Weiss, DOJ
  • Stuart Goldberg, DOJ
  • Shawn Weede, DOJ
  • Shannon Hudson, DOJ
  • Tom Sobocinski, FBI
  • Ryeshia Holley, FBI
  • Michael T. Batdorf, IRS
  • Darrell J. Waldon, IRS
  • Secret Service employees who received the December 7, 2020, tip-off from FBI and all Secret Service employees who may have passed this information along to the Biden family or presidential transition team.
