"That was one of the main issues that we brought forward to the House Ways and Means and House Oversight was that we weren't allowed to follow the normal investigative steps that would have potentially shine[d] more light on these issues," Shapley said Tuesday.
"We were very specific on what we provided, and those are things that now can be taken, the breadcrumbs that we've left, and they can go and talk to these witnesses, they can go talk to the government, individuals involved, and they can get to the bottom of it because every time that we needed to ask questions about President Biden's involvement and in relation to the business dealings, we just weren't allowed to do that," he added.

"Shapley claimed Tuesday that the FBI spooked a retired supervisory agent out of telling Congress all he knows about an alleged cover-up in the criminal investigation of first son Hunter Biden," the New York Post reported.
"FBI general counsel Jason Jones wrote a warning letter to the recently retired agent the afternoon before his July 17 deposition before the House Oversight Committee advising him not to share information about any 'deliberations or ongoing investigative activity,'" the report added.
The reports come after Hunter Biden's business associate Devon Archer testified before a congressional committee that President Joe Biden was on speakerphone 20 times during international business deals.
The testimony adds to the controversy over the president's involvement in bribery allegations during his time as vice president.
Biden is on vacation this week in Delaware as the latest twists unfold in the investigation.
The days ahead may see even more whistleblowers from the IRS and elsewhere as the evidence builds in the concerning case.
