According to Jim Jordan, the allegations against President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden have undergone a major turnaround.
Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, cited the renewed interest in the investigation by many of the same news outlets that had previously dismissed allegations of corruption evidence that was acquired from records and emails found on a laptop Hunter left behind at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019 as a sign that “something is up” with the investigation.
“Well, what happened to that is you had 51 intelligence officers sign a letter saying that this Hunter Biden story was Russian misinformation when it wasn’t, and that changed — I think anyone can make a credible argument that that altered the outcome of the election and we no longer have Donald Trump in the White House because he was doing that, he was pushing back on China for the first time. And now, we have Joe Biden there and it’s exactly the opposite direction,” Jordan explained.
“So that’s what happened. That’s why this is all connected because the influence of big media, big tech, and big government in impacting our election — I think we said this last week, Sean.”
“My colleagues had this in the committee a few weeks ago, Matt Gaetz. He said, when will the FBI stay out of elections and let us, the people, decide? In 2016, they went after Trump’s campaign, 2018, it was a Mueller investigation, 2020, they suppressed the Hunter Biden story, 2022, 91 days before the midterm election, they raid his home, and now, just two weeks ago, three days after he announces for the 2024 race, they name a special counsel and it’s not just anybody, it’s Jack Smith and the record that he has of weaponizing the government to go after the people,” Jordan went on.
“It sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” The Ohio Republican proclaimed.
“So, my, how this story has changed. And now, we find out these text messages and emails that link the entire family, not just Hunter and Joe and — but also uncle, the — Joe’s brother, James Biden, is involved in this as well.”
Over the weekend, Jordan also expressed his belief that Republican district attorneys would likely seek to prosecute Biden or his family members after Alvin Bragg’s “weaponized prosecution” of former President Donald Trump, according to the New York Post.
“One of my Republican colleagues has indicated that he has had some local DAs approach him and say he’s trying to do that,” Jordan pointed out, reporting that Republican Rep. James Comer had indicated he had been approached by two county district attorneys about investigating Biden.
“I didn’t want to see what happened in the Manhattan DA office but now that we’ve crossed that line, that’s where it’s likely to go. Frankly, you can’t blame people for doing it. I’m not saying I am supportive of that but I think that now has become the rules of the game,” Jordan bemoaned.
Likewise, Jordan spoke bluntly about the way left-wing prosecutors are pursuing Republicans across the country.
“We’re trying to show how left-wing policies and soft-on-crime policies impact communities in such a negative way. The impact they have on families, the community itself, small business owners, on economic growth, and hear from people who have truly suffered.”
“We have a duty to do oversight, particularly when it’s impacting the race for president”
“Mr. Bragg has said that he thinks the House Judiciary Committee is interfering with his investigation, but it’s just the opposite. They are interfering with our investigation — our constitutional duties to do oversight.”
Last week, House Republicans introduced two bills that go directly after Bragg, who brought the case that led to the indictment earlier this month of former President Donald Trump.
Also last week, Jordan informed Bragg that Republican investigations into him would not be slowed down by Bragg’s lawsuit.
Jordan slammed Bragg for his “pro-crime, anti-victim policies” in New York during an interview on Fox News. Additionally, Jordan accused the DA of overstepping his authority in filing a lawsuit against him, accusing him of indicting Trump for “no crime!”
In the wake of Trump’s indictment, many legal experts have contended that Bragg’s case is extraordinarily weak.
“The question to ask yourself in a case like this [is], ‘Would a case like this be brought against anybody else, whether he or she be president, former president or a regular citizen?’ The answer is… no,” Sol Wisenberg, a former Whitewater deputy counsel stated.
“You can debate all day long whether or not… Trump should be indicted related to the records at Mar-a-Lago, whether or not he should be indicted with respect to Jan. 6 incitement of lawless activity… Those are real crimes if they occurred, and he committed them,” he added. “This is preposterous.”
The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee held a field hearing in New York City on April 17 where family members of victims told how Bragg’s policies have adversely affected the area and exacerbated violent crime.
