(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Michael Batdorf, the IRS Director of Field Operations, has become the third official from the agency to state on record that the Justice Department had blocked Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss from filing charges against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. He further claimed that prior to Weiss becoming special counsel he was not given “ultimate authority.”
On September 12th, Batdorf revealed to the House Ways and Means Committee that Weiss had been blocked from carrying out his investigation and charges by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Tax Division and by several other federal prosecutors. He added that he had been “frustrated” by the Justice’s Department choice to not approve having tax charges filed against Hunter Biden despite the growing evidence against him.
Politico and the Washington Examiner released reports on Batdorf’s statements after obtaining a transcript of his interview.
Batdorf further alleged that federal prosecutors in California and Washington, D.C., had refused to cooperate with his investigation. However, their cooperation was necessary for Weiss’ case which would need to be filed in one of the two states. This is because Biden had been living in those two states during the years when he had not paid his taxes.
Batdorf revealed during the interview that DOJ tax needed to provide the authorization for charges to be pressed. He added that from his understanding of the situation, Weiss was not allowed to press charges without first receiving their authorization.
On June 7th, in a letter sent from Weiss to House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH), the prosecutor had alleged that he was the one with “ultimate authority” to bring charges against Biden.
