Stand-alone unit formed by FBI to investigate and mitigate threats against prosecutors and agents was involved in Hunter Biden probe
Prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents involved in the Hunter Biden investigation have been getting threats from the public, who think they haven’t been “tough enough” on the president’s son. The threats have gotten so bad that the FBI decided to create a stand-alone unit to investigate and mitigate them.
“We have stood up an entire threat unit to address threats that the FBI employees’ facilities are receiving,” Jennifer L. Moore, then an executive assistant director of human resources for the FBI, told the House Judiciary Committee in June.
“It is unprecedented. It’s a number we’ve never had before. It’s going to be about 10 people when it’s finished. We are still in the process of staffing it right now. But their sole mission on a daily basis is threats to FBI employees at facilities.”
Moore noted that the threats had more than doubled. She reported that there were more in the six months from October to March than in the previous 12 months.
The report has also linked the dramatic uptick in threats against the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) as congressional Republicans accused both agencies of participating in a conspiracy to subvert justice amid federal indictments of former President Donald Trump. According to officials, the pace of harassment increased after the FBI investigations of the former POTUS became public last summer. It has not slowed since then, they said.
Federal prosecutor Lesley Wolf have also received a number of threats that made her seek U.S. Marshals Service assistance as per an unreleased testimony to the Congressional committee. Two Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents have accused Wolf of making decisions that appeared favorable to Biden.

Meanwhile, “high-ranking FBI officials and prosecutors” were reported to have armed protection. Special counsel Jack Smith and his team have long been protected by an armed security detail, same with Robert Hur, the special counsel appointed to investigate classified documents found at President Joe Biden’s home and office.
Just recently, an FBI agent involved in the younger Biden’s investigation told the Judiciary Committee that the threats have extended to agents’ family members. “Things towards their families, that has absolutely increased,” Thomas Sobocinski, an FBI agent involved in the investigation, said in an interview. “The sense of the employees and especially the sense of their families is, yes, they feel threatened.”
Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Sobocinski that the committee’s counsel, Steve Castor, “faced the same kind of thing” when he defended Trump in impeachment proceedings. “There’s no place for that kind of threat and that kind of thing,” Jordan said.
Federal jury indicts Hunter Biden with felony gun charges
Amid all these stories of threats, Hunter Biden was indicted on gun charges Thursday, September 14, by a federal grand jury, less than two months after an earlier plea agreement he’d reached with prosecutors on tax and gun charges fell apart.
In the indictment filed by special counsel David Weiss in the U.S. District Court in Delaware, the president’s son has been charged with three criminal counts: two related to false statements he allegedly made while purchasing the firearm and a third for illegal possession of a firearm while addicted to drugs. The three charges carry a combined maximum prison sentence of 25 years.
As per the prosecutors, on or about Oct. 12, 2018, Hunter deceived a firearms dealer in Delaware while buying a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver by falsely stating on a federal firearms application that he was not addicted to any narcotics. Hunter has since acknowledged he was a drug addict.
Hunter allegedly certified on the form that “he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance, when in fact, as he knew, that statement was false and fictitious,” the indictment included.
