The House Judiciary Committee, led by Republicans, has taken a step forward in initiating an impeachment inquiry by issuing a subpoena for Lesley Wolf, a senior prosecutor from Delaware.
Wolf played an instrumental role in obstructing the investigation into Hunter Biden. Reports state that Assistant US Attorney Lesley Wolf declined to issue a search warrant at Joe Biden’s residence despite agreeing that probable cause existed.
Additionally, Gary Shapley – an IRS whistleblower – claims to have evidence that the Department of Justice blocked two search warrants and multiple felony charges against Hunter Biden.
“I am blowing the whistle because the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office, Department of Justice Tax, and Department of Justice provided preferential treatment and unchecked conflicts of interest in an important and high-profile investigation of the President’s son, Hunter Biden,” IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley told lawmakers in July.
Shapley previously informed legislators that an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Delaware assigned to Hunter’s case declined a search warrant for Joe Biden’s Delaware residence in 2020.
A separate search warrant for Hunter Biden’s storage locker was also denied by Joe Biden’s henchmen.
“Assistant US attorney Lesley Wolf cited the optics of executing a search warrant at President Biden’s residence as a deciding factor for not allowing it even though she agreed that probable cause existed,” Shapley said over the summer.
Her testimony will be heard on December 7.
House Republicans are demanding testimony on Dec. 7 from a top prosecutor on the Hunter Biden investigation as part of their impeachment inquiry into the president, according to a subpoena reviewed by POLITICO.
The House Judiciary Committee, helmed by Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) subpoenaed Lesley Wolf — a prosecutor in the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office — on Tuesday. The panel is investigating allegations of political interference in the federal investigation into Hunter Biden. Prosecutors reached a plea deal with Biden’s lawyers this summer that fell apart after scrutiny from a judge. The Justice Department then charged the president’s son in September with illegally owning a gun while a drug user.
Two IRS agents who worked on the Justice Department’s investigation into the president’s son have accused Wolf of stymieing their efforts to fully investigate the Biden family. They also told lawmakers she directed investigators to remove a reference to Joe Biden from a search warrant and that she blocked the team from searching his home.
