Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf, who has been accused of obstructing the Hunter Biden probe, has left her post at the Justice Department, it was reported Thursday as she sat down for an interview with the House Judiciary Committee.

Wolf, who was interviewed behind closed doors Thursday for a transcribed interview, appeared under a subpoena, a day after the full House voted on a party line basis to formalize an impeachment inquiry into the president.

That came on a day when Hunter Biden delivered a blistering statement outside the Capitol but declined to appear for a closed interview with lawmakers, after saying he would appear in a public forum.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan had told Wolf in a letter she possessed ‘specialized and unique information that is unavailable to the Committee through other sources.’

She has left the Justice Department and is no longer employed there, Fox News reported Thursday.

Wolf was a top investigator in the Hunter Biden probe headed by Special Counsel David Weiss. Prosecutors last week unsealed a new new nine-count grand jury indictment in Los Angeles on tax charges.

IRS whistleblower David Shapley has testified that DOJ investigators tried to ‘limit’ the questions that investigators could ask related to President Biden.

Shapley said Wolf sought to limit questions that could connect the probe to the now-president, including in 2020 in preparations for an interview with Hunter business associate Robert Walker.

Wolf ‘interjected and said she did not want to ask about the big guy and stated she did not want to ask questions about “dad.”‘

Investigators were interested in asking questions based on a 2017 email about people involved in a deal involving the now bankrupt firm CEFC China Energy Co.

It included a line that has prompted speculation that the ‘big guy’ is the now-president, and that the direction constituted an effort to hold back the probe. The party-line vote by House Republicans Wednesday will likely strengthen their ability to obtain other testimony, even though several Republicans have said they do not have evidence of wrongdoing by the president. reported last summer that Wolf was friends and colleagues with Alexander Mackler, who served as Joe Biden’s White House Deputy Counsel from 2014 to 2016 when he was vice president.

Jordan complained afterward that Wolf ‘refused to answer most of our questions’ about the ongoing investigation. Rep. Glenn Ivey of Maryland called the interview a ‘huge waste of time,’ saying there was not much she was permitted to say about the probe. (Read more: The Daily Mail, 12/14/2023)  (Archive)
