IRS Whistleblower Slams David Weiss Appointment: He’ll Give Hunter Preferential Treatment Again

On Friday, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced he was appointing David Weiss as special counsel for the Hunter Biden probe, much to the dismay of Republicans and even IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley.

Garland has given Weiss, who was already overseeing the probe, increased authority in his investigation.

“This appointment confirms my commitment to provide Mr. Weiss with all the resources he requests,” Garland said.

“It also reaffirms that Mr. Weiss has the authority he needs to conduct a thorough investigation and to continue to take the steps he deems appropriate independently, based only on the facts and the law.”

In 2017, President Donald Trump nominated David Weiss and started his post as U.S. attorney in Delaware in 2018.

According to his Department of Justice biography, the position followed stints as the acting and interim U.S. attorney and first assistant U.S. attorney.

On Friday, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley said that Weiss isn’t independent since he’s still a U.S. Attorney and “we’ve provided multiple pieces of evidence to show that he’s provided preferential treatment, that they stymied investigative steps.”

During a broadcast of CNN’s “The Source,” Shapley said:

“Look, the American people have to have confidence that this investigation is fair. And you have United States Attorney Weiss, who has investigated this for five years.”

“And the plea deal that he approved, as soon as it went to an objective party, the judge, the court, it immediately was found to be lacking. And it fell apart, for lack of better words, in reading what’s in the public record,” he added.

“So, I don’t know how now we can — we have any confidence that Weiss is now going to go and look at this independently. He is not independent,” Shapely continued.

“He’s still a U.S. Attorney in Delaware, and we’ve provided multiple pieces of evidence to show that he’s provided preferential treatment, that they stymied investigative steps,” he said.

“That’s all under United States Attorney Weiss,” Shapley said.

“So, is he now going to not stymie the investigative steps? I don’t think that is likely to occur.”
