Ex-DOJ Prosecutor Refused to Charge Hunter Biden

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Despite building an entire career on the prosecution of high-end financial crimes, one of the DOJ’s top lawyers chose not to pursue Hunter Biden for tax fraud. Matthew Graves, who was appointed by President Biden in 2021 as the U.S. Attorney for D.C., is also reported to have donated to both the President’s White House campaign and to Kamala Harris in her pursuit of a Senate seat.

Prior to his appointment’s approval in the Senate, Graves submitted answers to legislator questions about his professional background. In his responses, the lawyer indicated that four of his top five most significant career cases involved financial crimes. The attorney told senators that the fraud and corruption investigations he led resulted in seizures and fines totaling more than $2 billion.

In his two most notable cases, the lawyer said he went after international banking behemoths that had facilitated efforts to avoid or bypass U.S. sanctions by individuals in Iran, Sudan, and Cuba. The banks in question were responsible for illegally moving and concealing hundreds of millions of dollars.

Graves’ work was so efficient that he won the DOJ’s annual award for special achievement a total of four times. He was also given a service award by the FBI in 2014. Why the lawyer declined to pursue President Biden’s son is still in question.

Two different whistleblowers from the IRS have testified that Graves blocked now-Special Counsel David Weiss from charging Hunter Biden with tax crimes that had allegedly been committed in Washington, D.C. between 2014 and 2015. IRS Special Agents Joseph Zeigler and Gary Shapley both claimed in Congressional testimony that prosecutors intentionally delayed the case against the President’s son as part of a combined effort to force the statute of limitations to expire.

Shapley alleges that in addition to Graves declining to charge Hunter Biden, the DOJ refused to give U.S. Attorney David Weiss authority as special counsel.
