On Wednesday, Washington lawyer Bart S. Fisher wrote to Wolf to say he was granted a license from the Treasury Department, but only to represent Sudan in legal matters, not to lobby. However, Fisher made a case to Wolf that sanctions on Sudan should be repealed.
Wolf said that's lobbying, and called on Geither in a Thursday letter to repeal Fisher's license.
"[I]n his letter he tries to convince me, as a Member of Congress, that the current sanctions regime should be altered," Wolf wrote to Geithner. "If that's not lobbying, I don't know what is.
"Mr. Fisher should never have been granted a license to begin with," he continued. "But now, it appears that he is in violation of this license. I urge the Department to immediately revoke the license."
Wolf spoke against the license on the House floor on Wednesday.
"We stand just blocks from a museum that cries out 'never again,' " he said Wednesday. "Meanwhile, it appears that this administration is complicit in allowing a genocidal government to have an advocate in Washington."
