‘Whistleblower X’ in Hunter Biden Case Reveals Himself as Gay Democrat

'I hope that I am an example to other LGBTQ people out there, who are questioning doing the right thing at a potential cost to themselves and others...'

Update: Hours after the publication of this article, the identity of “Whistleblower X” was revealed to be IRS agent Joseph Ziegler.

(Ken Silva, Headline USA) The anonymous IRS agent known only to this point as “Whistleblower X” is set to reveal his identity when he testifies Wednesday afternoon about the Justice Department’s alleged political interference in the Hunter Biden tax investigation.

A copy of Whistleblower X’s written testimony was released Wednesday morning before the hearing. According to the testimony, Whistleblower X is a gay Democrat—which undermines criticism that the whistleblowers are conservative partisans.

“I hope that I am an example to other LGBTQ people out there, who are questioning doing the right thing at a potential cost to themselves and others,” Whistleblower X said in his testimony.

“We should always do the right thing, no matter how painful the process might be.”

But Whistleblower X said people shouldn’t just believe his testimony because he’s gay. This part of the testimony is likely referring to recent comments from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who said earlier this month that he believes the IRS whistleblower allegations because one is a “gay Democrat married to a man.”

“I’m no more credible than this man sitting next to me due to my sexual orientation or my political beliefs,” his testimony states, referring to the other whistleblower testifying Wednesday afternoon: IRS agent Gary Shapley, who was Whistleblower X’s supervisor in the Hunter Biden tax investigation.

Shapley’s written testimony was also released Wednesday.

Shapley’s testimony contains information that has already been made public—most notably, the explosive claim that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was ostensibly in charge of the Hunter Biden investigation, said in a private October 2022 meeting that he was “not the deciding person on whether charges are filed.” This is significant because it undermines Attorney General Merrick Garland’s April 2022 congressional testimony that Weiss had complete autonomy over the Biden investigation.

Both whistleblowers are testifying as momentum increases in the GOP to impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland and other top Biden administration officials.

“What’s becoming crystal clear is that the political brass at DOJ stonewalled & slow walked this investigation into Hunter,” said Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., on Friday. “If the purpose of this obstruction was to protect Joe, these are serious allegations which in my view lead to impeachment proceedings of Garland & POTUS.”

Sen. Cruz has also explicitly accused Garland of potentially having committed several felonies.

“If what the IRS whistleblowers are saying is true, then Merrick Garland is guilty of multiple felonies,” Cruz said last week.
