The Hunter Biden Prosecution Team Was Swapped Out at the Last Moment, Just Before They Agreed to This Corrupt Plea Deal

It's almost as if there's some kind of sham going on here.

The suspicion is that they wanted "cleanskins" to sign off on the plea deal -- "cleanskins" who were not involved in the previous fraudulent investigation, which involved repeatedly shutting down important lines of investigation.

People are now questioning a rather unusual move by the Department of Justice regarding the Hunter Biden case.

When the Delaware U.S. Attorney's office listed their prosecutorial team when they filed the charges in the matter, they listed three people who had not been involved in the case or the investigation over the years: Assistant US Attorneys Leo Wise, Derek Hines, and Benjamin Wallace. >They appear to have swapped out the people who had been handling it for a while -- AUSAs Lesley Wolf, Shawn Weede, and Shannon Hanson -- raising the question of why the very unusual switch right before minor charges were filed against Hunter Biden?

A lawyer for IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley said, "None of the three [listed] were involved in the underlying investigation during Gary's tenure, to my knowledge."

One of the prosecutors listed on Weiss's letter, Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) Ben Wallace, only joined the Delaware office in March this year.

On Monday revealed that another, Derek Hines, has a potential conflict having worked from 2013 to 2015 as 'Special Counsel' to one of Hunter's business partners, ex-FBI director Louis Freeh.

And AUSA Leo Wise was drafted to the Delaware office after being demoted from Chief of the Public Corruption and Fraud Unit at the Maryland US Attorney's Office to a mere line prosecutor in the same unit in March, the Baltimore Sun reported.

So why was the more experienced team switched out for these guys, and did that in any way affect the charges that were filed?

When the IRS whistleblowers testified to Congress in May, they had a lot to say about the old team, in particular AUSA Wolf, who Shapley and the other whistleblower mentioned between them 83 times, including how Wolf told investigators they weren't allowed to ask about Joe Biden or who the "Big Guy" was. Wolf also decided against a search warrant for the guest house at Joe Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home, where Hunter was living at one point, because of the optics.

So why weren't she and the others listed on the filing of the charges? The Delaware U.S. Attorney's Office isn't talking.


Are they trying to hide the folks like Wolf, who might be questioned more if they were still on the case? That isn't going to stop Congress from subpoenaing them; they've already made it clear they want to talk to Wolf. If it's removing the prior folks because they think they did something wrong, then that should be spelled out, or once again, they're not being transparent and revealing why they're doing things. Or is it that they specifically want to sub in the new guys, including the guy who used to work with Louis Freeh?

In related news, Hunter Biden's Democrat-donor-paid lawyers are defaming IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, baselessly accusing him of leaking to the press.

He doesn't have to "leak," assholes -- he testified for days before Congress. Congress knows everything he knows, and Congress has released some of it to the public.

Further, he has then publicly answered questions on CBS News about his testimony.

So what would he need to "leak"?

Hunter's lawyers, in fact, even demanded that Joe Biden investigate the whistleblower Gary Shapley.

This is yet another brazen attempt at intimidation by Hunter Biden's Democrat-donor-funded lawyers.

The 14-year veteran of the U.S. tax agency alleges Hunter Biden received special treatment

David Weiss, the Delaware Attorney General, denies retaliating against Shapley
An IRS whistleblower who accused US authorities of offering preferential treatment to Hunter Biden in a recent tax probe has denied leaking stories to the media.

An attorney for Gary Shapley hit out at the First Son's legal team for 'falsely' claiming that he was the source of an October 2022 Washington Post story.

That story said that the federal investigators had 'sufficient evidence' to charge Biden with tax and gun crimes.

The 14-year veteran of the U.S. tax agency has claimed that his investigation into the 53-year-old's fiscal affairs was deliberately derailed by DOJ officials.

Shapley has argued that almost three years later they still haven't received all the data on Hunter's infamous laptop -- which could incriminate not only Hunter but his father too.

Shapley told CBS that he was warned off from probing further into Hunter Biden's lucrative business deals abroad or investigating possible involvement by the president himself.

It prompted his legal team to release a statement accusing Shapley of regularly planting stories in the media and call for a DOJ investigation.

Mark D. Lytle, one of his lawyers, wrote to the two reporters behind the Post story, Devlin Barrett and Perry Stein, urging them to clear the former tax official's name.

'As you know, SSA Shapley was not a source for you on that story, or any other story for that matter,' he wrote.

'If you had ever given him any pledge of confidentiality, you are hereby released from that pledge, so that you may contradict his denial if it were inaccurate. Thus, you are now free to correct Mr. Biden's attorneys and clear SSA Shapley's good name of these false and retaliatory charges,' the letter said.
