Biden Family and Unpursued Evidence

A previously unidentified IRS whistleblower publicly told Congress on Wednesday that federal prosecutors investigating presidential son Hunter Biden were “hamstrung” by political pressure and called for the appointment of a special counsel in the case. 

Former IRS special agent Joseph Ziegler—a Democrat who identifies as a homosexual married man—previously gave anonymous testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee. 

Now he's coming out.

Be informed, not misled.

Unpursued evidence.

The Daily Signal reports, "In new testimony Wednesday, Ziegler made his identity known to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee during a hearing on why a five-year investigation recently produced a lenient Justice Department plea agreement with Hunter Biden, despite evidence that the president’s son made millions in overseas business deals in China, Ukraine, and other places by using his father’s name.

He continued, “People are saying that I must be more credible because I’m a Democrat who happens to be married to a man. I’m no more credible than this man sitting next to me, due to my sexual orientation or my political beliefs,” Ziegler told the committee in opening remarks, referring to IRS colleague and supervisor Gary Shapley, the panel’s other witness.   

“The truth is, my credibility comes today from my job experience with the IRS and my intimate knowledge of the agency’s standards and procedures,” he said.

Earlier this month, U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss reached a plea deal with Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, to charge him with two misdemeanor tax charges and a suspended sentence for lying on a gun purchase form. No prison time likely would result.

This development came after IRS investigators and federal prosecutors had previously determined that the younger Biden should face felony charges, Ziegler said.

There is so much Hunter should have been charged with, but some top authorities chose to charge him with the least possible---which allowed the Biden Administration to tell the American people, "See, we prosecuted Hunter for wrongdoing." And "we found that his father, Joe, was not involved." 

That, of course, is deception. They were very selective in how they charged Hunter.

The real evidence, of which there is myriad, tells a very different story of the Biden family and their business affairs. 

Ziegler said he felt he had to do the right thing due to the way he was raised.

Shapley, Ziegler’s colleague, already had spoken in public interviews with media and in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee. Shapley said he had to come forward after he saw the Justice Department cross a “red line,” explaining:

The Justice Department allowed the president’s political appointees to weigh in on whether to charge the president’s son. After the United States attorney for D.C., Matthew Graves, appointed by President Biden, refused to bring charges in March 2022, I watched United States Attorney Weiss tell a room full of senior FBI and IRS senior leaders on Oct. 7, 2022, that he was not the deciding person on whether charges were filed. That was my red line.

"The family that skates together stays together."

The influence-peddling, money laundering, and foreign shakedowns encircling Hunter Biden, his uncle Jim, and "The Big Guy" in the Oval Office have received considerable attention, at least in the conservative media. But even well-informed conservatives are stunned by how many Bidens have T-boned into the law and waltzed away from the wreckage.

The Biden family is an ongoing crime spree in which the word “consequences” might as well be in Swahili. 

How bad is it?

The New York Post’s Jon Levine recently detailed how the Bidens get away with lawlessness over and over and over again. Being a Biden means never facing the music for crimes that routinely land non-royals behind bars.

Here's an overview of the Biden family business via the New York Post:

First son Hunter Biden earned at least $8.3 million in foreign schemes, according to IRS whistleblowers, evidently in exchange for access to his father. Echoing Watergate’s “Saturday Night Massacre,” the U.S. Department of Obstruction of Justice told the IRS on May 15 to instruct whistleblower Gary Shapley and his 12-member team to stop investigating Hunter. A concurrent DOJ probe already had devoured five years, as statutes of limitation repeatedly expired. 

With Hunter no longer under the IRS’ microscope, his lawyers and the DOJ agreed that federal prosecutors would request two years of probation once Hunter pled guilty to misdemeanors, not felonies, for not paying $100,000 in taxes on $1.5 million in income in 2017 and ’18.

That 6.7% effective tax rate is the Democrats’ new definition of “fair share.” If tax-evading actor Wesley Snipes were named Wesley Biden, he would have savored such a wrist massage. Instead, he spent nearly three years in prison.

Hunter Biden lied on a gun-purchase application, claiming to be drug-free. He soon illegally possessed a gun while drug-addicted. Federal prosecutors want Hunter in a diversion program, not prison. Confirming America’s two-tier justice system, rapper Kodak Black received a 46-month prison sentence for lying on a gun form.

An anti-corruption nonprofit called Marco Polo on July 1 released photos discovered on the “Laptop from Hell.” In them, Hunter snapped himself holding a crack pipe while driving through Arlington, Virginia, on June 12, 2018. That Aug. 1, Hunter photographed himself piloting a Porsche to Las Vegas at 172 mph.

Again: No punishment. 

What next? Will Hunter become the Department of Transportation’s Man of the Year? 

First daughter Ashley Biden was busted for marijuana possession in 1999, while at Tulane University. New Orleans police confirm her arrest, but court documents show no conviction.

Ashley Biden offended again, after a 2002 bottle-shattering fracas outside a Chicago bar. She allegedly tried to obstruct a cop and made “intimidating statements.” So what? Charges were dropped. 

In 2009, Levine reports, a woman who looks like Ashley Biden appeared in a video, seemingly snorting cocaine at a Delaware house party. Once again, she skated.

First brother Frank Biden was a passenger in an Aug. 14, 1999, drunk-driving crash near San Diego. On Sept. 2, 2002, a court found him partially liable for fatally hitting single-father Michael Albano. He was told to pay Albano’s daughters $550,000 in damages. With interest, this had grown to $880,000. As the Daily Mail reports, Frank Biden skipped court appearances and paid the Albanos nothing through at least 2020.

On Aug. 20, 2003, Frank Biden was arrested for drunk driving in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His license had been suspended four times. Penalty: six months’ probation.

That Oct. 27, he got nabbed at a Pompano Beach, Florida, Blockbuster with two stolen DVDs shoved in his pants. He missed his court hearing and apparently skirted prosecution.

On Nov. 21, 2004, he was arrested yet again for driving with a suspended license. Rather than jail, he got three months at the Watershed rehab facility.

First niece Caroline Biden was charged in September 2013 with punching an NYPD officer at her Tribeca apartment after an unpaid rent dispute turned violent. She underwent anger management, and everything vanished without prison time.

In 2017, she charged $110,000 on a stolen credit card. She spent those funds at Manhattan’s elegant Bigelow Pharmacy. That fraud won her a felony conviction. However, she later re-pled to petty larceny, a lower crime, and avoided prison.

While driving sans license in August 2019, Caroline Biden plowed into a tree in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania. She “had difficulty focusing,” said arresting Officer Jeffrey Seamans. Blood tests verified that she was under the influence of several drugs, including carisoprodol (a prescription muscle relaxant) and lorazepam (a pharmaceutical anti-anxiety aide).

Fifteen months later, she was arraigned on Nov. 4, 2020—one day after the Biden-Trump general election. How convenient.

What did these three crimes cost Caroline Biden? Probation!

First lady Jill Biden seems to be the only prominent Biden not suspected of, charged with, nor guilty of serious crimes. Like a Mafia matriarch, she smells like a rose, and she “ain’t seen nuttin.’”

Now you know why so many are so angry at what's happening in the highest office in the land.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
