Jim Jordan: Hunter Biden’s text messages ‘tie in the entire family’

In a statement, Rep. Jim Jordan said the New York Post’s story showing how Hunter Biden paid his dad’s expenses shows how “involved” Joe was in Hunter’s business affairs.

In response to the first report last July about the messages found on the first son’s abandoned laptop, Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, spoke out.

“One, it sure looks like Joe Biden was involved. This was a family operation, including his uncle, as I said before,” Jordan said, referring to Joe’s brother James.

According to emails and texts found on Hunter Biden’s computer, some of his father’s expenses had to be paid by him.

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter Biden complained in January 2019 to his daughter Naomi. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

There was no evidence of these money transfers on the laptop, but certain expenses were listed as JRB Bills, the president’s initials. Some of the expenses were for home repairs, which amounted to several thousand dollars.

President Biden’s public comments about his troubled son’s scandalous overseas business activities contradict the messages, Jordan said.

“Remember what Joe Biden said in the debates 18 months ago, he said he didn’t do anything wrong and Hunter wasn’t taking money from business interests with connections to China,” Jordan told “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“There are 4.8 million reasons why that statement Joe Biden made was not accurate because we know he took $4.8 million from CEFC, the Chinese energy company. So yeah, this ties in the entire family.”

In the Washington Post article published March 30 that confirmed the authenticity of the emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, the newspaper reported that entities controlled by Hunter Biden and his uncle received $4.8 million from CEFC in 2017 and 2018.

In October 2020, The Post published a series of blockbuster exposés detailing Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine and China based on the laptop left behind at a computer repair shop in Delaware in April 2019.

Several media outlets, including The Washington Post and New York Times, did not follow up on the Hunter Biden story, dismissing it as possible disinformation being spread by Russia prior to the 2018 presidential election.

Similarly, 51 former US intelligence officials raised doubt about the laptop – which Jordan called a “conspiracy.”

“The left always tries to always say, ‘Oh, there’s these right-wing conspiracies.’ The real conspiracy here was the Democrats, big tech, big media, keeping this story from the American people just days before the most important election we have,” Jordan said to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.

“Election for president of the United States, election for who’s going to be the commander-in-chief, and you have a family involved with all kinds of foreign business interests, and we don’t get to hear that story,” Jordan added.

In addition, he stated that intel officials’ message may have been the worst part of all.

“That letter they wrote where they said, this has all the earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign, that letter became the basis for big tech and big media to suppress this story and keep it from we the people in the run-up to our most important election,” he stated.

In the event that Republicans regain control of Congress in the 2022 midterms, Jordan will lead the House Judiciary Committee, which he said will conduct a series of investigations into the Biden family.

“Frankly, if the American people put us back in power, I think we owe it to them to give them the truth,” he emphasized, pointing out allegations the Department of Justice spied on parents in Virginia and about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“And, of course, this story about Hunter Biden and the Biden family profiting off of foreign interests and keeping that information from the American people,” Jordan added.

Because of his foreign business dealings, Hunter Biden is being investigated for possible tax fraud by federal prosecutors. If the Republicans control Congress, Biden will be exposed to even more investigations.

The president’s younger sister, Valerie Biden Owen, defended her nephew, who has battled drug and alcohol addiction and blamed the accusations on the attacks on the family that began during the 2020 election.

In response to a question about Hunter Biden’s role in the controversies surrounding members of the Biden family, she said, “No.”

“Hunter walked through hell. He didn’t wake up and say, ‘Aunt Val, I think I’m going to be an addict. And so whatever happens, it’s my responsibility,’” she said in an interview published by USA Today on Sunday.

Biden Owens, the author of Growing Up Biden: A Memoir, compared the Bidens to the Kennedys.

Owens, 76, known as the “Biden whisperer” for her special relationship with her elder brother, indicated she advised him not to run against Trump in 2020 due to expected political attacks.

That prediction came true, she said.

“It met and exceeded my expectations of being ugly and degrading, disrespectful, a disservice to the country,” she stated. “Trump and his right-wing followers have continued to do whatever they can to discredit the family and therefore to bring Joe down.”
