Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower Joseph Ziegler appeared before the House Oversight Committee Wednesday to attest to multiple payments worth $17 million that the Biden family received from foreign entities between 2014 and 2019. Also appearing with Ziegler was Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley, who investigated Hunter Biden.

The information Ziegler came to corroborate was presented in part by the investigation of Representative James Comer, chairman of the Commission, in his May report. Along with details about the Biden family's income, Ziegler also provided details about how his work at the IRS was constantly hampered in defending the Biden family.

The payments Ziegler reported on are those received by various limited liability companies in the names of Biden family members and associates. As Comer revealed in its first report, the origins of these sums of money are linked back to Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine and China. In these limited partnership deals, Comer assured that there is an FBI report corroborating Hunter Biden's bribes to favor his dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. According to Comer's filing, Hunter and the family's limited liability companies received payments from Burisma to prevent the Ukrainian prosecutor general from investigating the energy company.

Aside from these payments totaling $17 million, Ziegler and Shapley assured the House Committee that their investigations were interfered with by the Biden Administration's Justice Department to prevent any serious charges being brought against Hunter Biden for financial crimes.

IRS investigators never received this report from the FBI, according to what they stated, even though its contents would have been of great help to them in their work. Sharpley and Ziegler noted that the charges related to fiscal year 2014 were time-barred. They contend that the Washington prosecutor appointed by Biden refused to cooperate with federal prosecutors and prevented those charges from being filed.

It was the first time IRS whistleblowers publicly disclosed their identity. During the arraignment, Democratic representatives attempted to undermine his allegations and testimony, asserting that Hunter Biden was not charged with felonies because of disputes and dissension among prosecutors. IRS whistleblowers repeatedly refuted this assumption during their speeches.
