Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, has issued a subpoenaed one of the federal prosecutors who is alleged to have put constraints around the years-long investigation into Hunter Biden, according to House Republicans earlier this week. This is most definitely going to rub liberals the wrong way. Jordan is one of the few individuals in Congress who is actively attempting to hold the left and its members in the deep state accountable for their actions. Unfortunately, until we have full control of both chambers and the White House, we’re probably not going to see a whole lot of lasting change or justice served.
According to the Daily Wire:
Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf of Delaware was directed to appear for a deposition on December 7 as part of the House GOP’s review of how the Department of Justice (DOJ) has conducted its criminal probe into Hunter Biden as well as the corruption-focused impeachment inquiry against his father, President Joe Biden.
Jordan explained in a letter to Wolf the various ways in which information obtained by the judiciary panel indicates she was “responsible for many of the decisions to deviate from standard investigative protocol during the Department’s investigation of Hunter Biden.” These included claims that Wolf, either directly or by instructing others, blocked certain lines of inquiry about Joe Biden and tipped off Hunter Biden’s legal team about a planned search of a storage unit.
In addition, testimony from Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower Gary Shapley alleged that Wolf “obstructed” another U.S. attorney’s team in Pennsylvania from briefing Delaware U.S. Attorney Davis Weiss’ office about bribery allegations concerning Joe and Hunter Biden, the letter said.
The Daily Wire reached out to the DOJ seeking comment on the subpoena. Previously, the agency has raised concerns to Jordan about “misrepresentations” that could impede public confidence in the administration of justice.
The Ohio Republican stated that the Justice Department has granted other employees permission to testify, “albeit with substantial scoping limitations,” however, he pointed out that Wolf is an exception due to the agency giving lame arguments concerning an “ongoing investigation,” and having a “longstanding policy” of not forcing non-Senate-confirmed and line-level DOJ workers available to be interviewed.
All of this goes back to when Hunter Biden and his legal team tried hard to get a plea deal that would have essentially enabled him to get off scot-free with little to no consequences for his tax and gun violations. However, the deal fell through due to being placed under scrutiny by the judge presiding over the case. In August, Attorney General Merrick Garland granted Weiss special counsel status, which granted him broader authority to bring charges against the president’s troubled younger son outside of his own district.
In September, a grand jury indicted Hunter Biden on federal gun charges. He promptly pleaded not guilty. The first son is also potentially facing an indictment for the tax charges mentioned earlier.
“Weiss testified in a deposition before the House Judiciary Committee earlier this month, after which Jordan indicated “the key takeaway” was that the prosecutor requested but did not receive special attorney powers that would have allowed him to bring charges outside of his jurisdiction in Delaware last year without the partnership of the local U.S. attorney,” the Daily Wire said.
