WASHINGTON — The attorneys for IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley made the following statement regarding a new letter from U.S. Attorney David Weiss to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“U.S. Attorney David Weiss’s story continues to change. As a practical matter, it makes no difference whether Weiss requested special counsel or special attorney authority. Under no circumstances should ‘the process’ have included the political appointees of the subject’s father, because Congress and the public had been assured it would not—but it did.”
