House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., vowed to hold the U.S. Department of Justice accountable in an alleged high-level cover-up that may have protected the Biden family from feeling the sting of equal justice.

In an interview on Fox News, Comer spoke about IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley’s allegation that his team was hindered from investigating Hunter Biden and that DOJ prosecutors directed them to avoid asking questions about the “Big Guy.”

Rep. Comer explained, “It’s another example of the Department of Justice meddling to have a cover-up. This is a cover-up of public corruption at the highest level. And if you go back to when we bought the general counsel for the National Archives in for a transcribed interview in the House Oversight Committee, they said the DOJ told them to stand down.”

He added, “We have FBI whistleblowers that Sen. Grassley and I worked with, that said they were told to stand down on this investigation of Biden bribery. Now you have two very credible IRS whistleblowers who have said the same thing. They started finding those shell companies that we disclosed on the House Oversight Committee. And, I think they were on number five or number six out of 19 and they were told to stand down.”

On Thursday, a joint effort from the House Committees on Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means announced that they were seeking more than a dozen transcribed interviews from senior leaders at the IRS, the DOJ, and the U.S. Secret Service in relation to their investigation into Hunter Biden.

Further, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has threatened to bring an impeachment inquiry against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland if the allegations from IRS whistleblowers are proven to be true.

Rep. Comer stated on Fox, “So, we have a situation here where our federal government has been involved in a cover-up. It’s generated by the Department of Justice, and it continues with this Hunter Biden plea deal. This is a slap in the face of every American who works hard and pays taxes and believes in our system of justice.”

As reported by RSBN, Hunter Biden recently took a sweetheart plea deal on three misdemeanor charges, despite overwhelming evidence of alleged illicit business dealings uncovered by House Republicans.
