IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley and Special Agent Joseph Ziegler issued the following statement.
“Eight months ago we did something ordinary people don’t do: we risked our careers and reputations to bring the truth out of the shadows and into the light. We were moved solely by our consciences, yet faced continual attacks. Nevertheless, in the face of all odds, we never wavered from what we shared with Congress. Today’s indictment is a complete vindication of our thorough investigation, and underscores the wide agreement by investigators and prosecutors that the evidence supported charges against Hunter Biden. Yet as we have stated, this is much bigger than our investigation or any one individual: it’s about equal treatment of taxpayers under the law.”
