Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has addressed the topic of the growing number of Republicans who are calling for the impeachment of President Joe Biden and other officials of his administration.
James Comer, the Kentucky Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, reportedly tried to get FBI documents earlier this month, according to Punchbowl News. Comer said his belief that the records may be able to offer light on claims that while Vice President, Biden may have accepted payments from a foreign official in exchange for using his influence over policy decisions while serving in the Obama administration.
Comer’s claim is supported by evidence that was given to him by an unnamed whistleblower; three FBI informants appeared before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
However, Jordan stated that the party’s effort to impeach is now working “to get the facts” amid rising clamor for it.
“You think about [Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas, he certainly warrants impeachment, but that’s a decision we have to make as a conference…he said to Punchbowl News in the beginning of May, as reported by Newsweek, “And relative to the president, of course, that’s a decision that’s going to be made by the full Republican Conference and the speaker, and no one’s really focused on that now.”
Representative Tim Burchett, a Tennessee Republican and member of the House Oversight Committee, claimed in April that material provided by an IRS whistleblower requesting protection to testify might lead to Biden’s impeachment.
“This is just the very tip of the iceberg. This very brave IRS agent coming forward, I think, will just start it,” he told Fox News reporter Maria Bartiromo, “They’re talking about impeaching Biden. How could we not impeach Biden if this does, in fact, reach him?”
The speaker also discussed the letter, which was signed by 51 former intelligence chiefs, in which they claimed that the laptop used by Hunter Bien bore the telltale signs of Russian disinformation.
But according to testimony given to the House Judiciary Committee by former acting CIA director Michael Morell, he sent the letter subsequent to conversing with Antony Blinken, the current secretary of state, because his goal was for Joe Biden to win the 2020 presidential election.
“If I was [among] those 51 people, I’d be lawyering up right now because they’re going to be asked in public at some point what they knew and if they knew that all this other stuff was going on because it is very damning,” Burchett warned.
“If this cover-up shows what’s going on, that we all assume is going on, and that the 51 folks were basically lied to and showed false documentation, how can you not [impeach Biden]?” Burchett asserted. “I mean, this is just going on too much.”
“Like I said, the documentation that I’ve seen, I can’t comment on all of it. But what I can comment on is that it is bad, and it is getting worse, and it is showing illegal monies from Chinese communists flowing into this White House via Hunter Biden and his lawyers.”
“How could we not impeach Biden if this does, in fact, reach him?” he continued.
Jordan explained earlier this year how he is directing congressional investigations into Hunter Biden, problems with school boards, Big Tech, and other important topics.
“We’ve actually done several. I think maybe more than … I think the rest of the Congress combined,” Jordan explained, adding that he had written the “final” round of letters to former US intelligence personnel in connection with an investigation into President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
According to the Washington Post, federal authorities are currently looking into Hunter Biden’s tax concerns and international business operations.
Recent congressional testimony shows that the infamous 2020 letter alleging that the Hunter Biden laptop allegation was a Russian disinformation plot was both signed and ultimately approved by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States.
Multiple former U.S. intelligence officials testified under oath about the CIA’s involvement in the dissemination of the letter, which was ultimately signed by over fifty former top U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report that will be published by the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government this coming Wednesday.
“One signer of the statement, former CIA analyst David Cariens, disclosed to the Committees that a CIA employee affiliated with the agency’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (‘PCRB’) informed him of the existence of the statement and asked him if he would sign it,” the House report states.
“The Committees have requested additional material from the CIA, which has ignored the request to date.”
The mission of the Prepublication Classification Review Board (PCRB) is to examine comments, letters, and books written by former intelligence employees in order to assess whether any classified information is included that has to be deleted or redacted before publication.
