Gary Shapley provided a detailed account in a transcript he released Thursday confirming the president’s special treatment, potentially devastating to prosecutors who were uninterested when it came to examining Hunter Biden’s financial wrongdoing, according to the Washington Post.

He also directly touched on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s testimony before Congress, in which he said that Delaware Attorney General David Weiss, an affiliate of the Trump administration, has full authority to lead the investigation into Hunter Biden and can do whatever he wants in the case.

A Justice Department spokesman endorsed Garland’s earlier comments, and the top Democrat on the House committee said the allegations should not have been made public while lawmakers were still scrutinizing them.

In addition, he said that Weiss had claimed to investigators that he was not “responsible for deciding whether to file charges,” and added that Weiss then surprised the agents by saying that “Biden-appointed United States Attorney General Matthew Graves will not allow him to press charges in his area.”

Weiss also alleged that Weiss told the group, which included prosecutors, FBI agents and IRS agents, “that he had known for months that Graves’ office had declined to bring charges against Biden there.” Shapley also said Weiss told the group that he had asked the Justice Department to hire him as special counsel. , which gives him greater independence in the investigation, “and he was deprived of this power.”

A week after Shapley’s appearance on May 26 before the House Committee, the committee heard the IRS investigator who worked under Shapley’s leadership.
