Jordan on Tuesday sent out a letter to Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf, informing her that she is required to come before the House Judiciary Committee for a deposition.
“As a part of its investigations, the Committee has determined that it requires your testimony because you have first-hand knowledge of the Department’s criminal inquiry of Hunter Biden,” Jordan wrote. “In light of the Department’s refusal to make you available for a voluntary transcribed interview, we have no choice but to compel your testimony at a deposition.”
Jordan claimed in the letter that whistleblower testimony showed that Wolf took action that prevented a thorough investigation from being conducted on Hunter Biden. The whistleblowers also accused Wolf of tipping off “people very close” to the Bidens about an FBI request for an interview and barring investigators from asking questions that might implicate President Joe Biden in the investigation.
“Information available to the Committee suggests that you — either directly or by instructing others — are responsible for many of the decisions to deviate from standard investigative protocol during the Department’s investigation of Hunter Biden,” Jordan wrote.
Jordan, alongside House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY), is currently overseeing President Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry. Jordan told Wolf that her testimony will bee needed in the president’s impeachment inquiry.
“As part of the impeachment inquiry, the Committee is investigating whether President Biden ‘abused his power as President to impede, obstruct, or otherwise hinder investigations (including Congressional investigations) or the prosecution of Hunter Biden,’” Jordan wrote. “Given your critical role you played in the investigation of Hunter Biden, you are uniquely situated to shed light on whether President Biden played any role in the Department’s investigation and whether he attempted, in any way, to directly or indirectly obstruct either that investigation or our investigation.”
