IRS special agent Joseph Ziegler, a whistleblower who testified before Congress on Wednesday, said in an interview this week that numerous roadblocks were put in front of him during his investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.

CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge asked Ziegler, “Did you uncover evidence that President Biden financially benefited from his son’s deals?”

“I don’t feel comfortable answering that question,” Ziegler responded. “Any time we potentially wanted to go down the road of asking questions related to the president, it was, ‘That’s gonna take too much approvals, we can’t ask those questions.’ And I mean, it created an environment that was very hard to deal with.”

Ziegler said that the response he would get when he tried to press the issue was, “Let’s put that on the back burner.”

Ziegler said that the only question that matters at the end of the day is, “Are we treating everyone the same? Are we treating all taxpayers the same?”

“And in this case, no, I don’t think so,” he said.

Ziegler said that he wanted to interview Hunter Biden’s adult children because “a lot of the business deductions, expenses, [were] related to the adult children.”


When asked whether he got approval to ask, he said, “We never received the approvals to talk to those people” because he was told by the Assistant U.S. Attorney that doing so was going to get them “into hot water.”

“Is that in the IRS handbook, avoiding hot water?” Herridge asked.

“No, but I mean, I was asking to do these certain things and roadblock after roadblock was put up in front of me,” he said.
