Hunter Biden’s lawsuit filed against the IRS on Monday appears to misquote IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, altering the facts regarding testimony from an FBI official about the Hunter Biden investigation.
During an interview that aired Aug. 1, 2023, on Fox News, “Mr. Shapley alleged that FBI General Counsel, Jason Jones ‘was given a letter the Sunday before [his July 17 deposition before the House Oversight Committee] from DOJ basically telling him not to talk,'” the lawsuit states.
The entire quote from Shapley on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom“ is: “For example, the FBI SSA that testified for the House Ways and Means Committee, he was given a letter the Sunday before from DOJ basically telling him not to talk. And I know that he could have confirmed additional material facts on this investigation.”
