The New York Post has reported that a letter was sent to a former supervisory agent that was involved in the Hunter Biden investigation warning him about answering certain questions from the House Oversight Committee.
The now redacted letter from DOJ general counsel Jason Jones told the witness the night before testimony that the FBI “expects that you will decline to respond to questions seeking non-public information likely covered by one or more components of executive privilege or other significant confidentiality interests, in particular information about deliberations or ongoing investigative activity in law enforcement matters.”
The former agent was ordered to direct any such questions to the FBI’s Office of Congressional Affairs.
“The FBI warned a former supervisory agent who investigated Hunter Biden that he was expected to “𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐝” to
@GOPoversight questions. FBI general counsel Jason Jones sent the letter the night before this former agent was set to testify,” Rep. james Comer wrote in a social media post.

The former Agent’s name has been redacted but there have been several reports that he has confirmed testimony given by Supervisory IRS agent Gary Shapley, who oversaw the case for about three years. The New York Post also reported that another IRS agent invovled in the case, who has remained anonymous is expected to come forward and vouch for Shapely during a congressional hearing.
The letter was sent a couple of days before it was reported that former President Trump is expected to be indicted a third time.
