Recently, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan failed in his attempt to become the speaker of the U.S. House, but he is still determined to accomplish one of his key objectives: holding President Joe Biden accountable.
During an interview on Fox News, Jordan — who serves as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee — stated that Republicans will make their decision regarding initiating impeachment proceedings against Biden early next year.
He noted that while the GOP’s investigation needs some final touches, many of his supporters already believe there is sufficient evidence to impeach him.
Jordan has suggested that Vice President Kamala Harris and California Representative Nancy Pelosi, both Democrats, could be subject to a scandal.
Earlier in the year, Jordan called for an inquiry into Pelosi and the House’s January 6 Commission. He argued that the Commission should investigate Pelosi’s knowledge of events on January 6th.
Fox News host Larry Kudlow asked, “Jim Jordan, there may be some announcements in a minute or maybe not, but let’s talk just for a moment about the hearing. You presided over the deposition yesterday. I think the general point here is that Joe — we now know that Joe Biden has been lying about knowing his son’s business activities.”
“Oh, sure,” Jordan responded with Kudlow asking, “He lied during the 2020 debates, and he continues to lie since then. Just tell us if you would, sir, what stands out in your mind from this deposition? What did you take away that was particularly interesting?”
“Yeah. Mr. Archer said that Hunter Biden, the value he brought to the business operation they were involved in, was the Biden brand. The Biden brand being Joe Biden, this powerful political figure in D.C. And I think you saw that manifest in this meeting that took place that I thought really stood out in yesterday’s deposition, or interview was this meeting that took place December 4th, 2015, in Dubai, where Hunter Biden and Devon Archer are meeting with executives from Burisma, the guys who run Burisma, Mr. Zlochevsky,” Jordan began.
“They’re meeting with them, and at this meeting they say, the Burisma people say we’re under a lot of pressure. We need the United States government to help us out. And of course, five days after this meeting, December 9th, 2015, Joe Biden goes to Ukraine and starts attacking the prosecutor. Now, also at that meeting on December 4th in Dubai, they have a phone call with ‘D.C.’ Now, I don’t know who it was. Mr. Archer said he didn’t know. He wasn’t right there when the phone call happened,” he said.
“He was at a different part of the hotel when that happened. But he knows that there was a call that took place, a call to D.C. Who they talked to, I don’t know. But again, five days after this, Joe Biden takes action, which is the start of this process that now has become somewhat well-known where Joe Biden a few months later says, where he relates, where he gives this talk to the folks in Ukraine, says if you don’t fire Shokin, the prosecutor, you’re not getting the money,” Jordan added.
Jordan continued: “Ironically, the same thing they went after President Trump for in the impeachment, but Joe Biden says he did it. That all starts in play on this December 9th speech he gives there. Again, five days after this conversation takes place. So, that to me was sort of the big takeaway from yesterday’s interview.”
Representative Jim Jordan announced on Tuesday morning that Hunter Biden has agreed to cooperate with the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into his foreign business dealings.
The committee launched probes regarding President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, earlier this year in order to determine if any impeachable offenses had been committed.
As part of the investigation, subpoenas were issued for both Hunter and James Biden, the president’s brother, earlier this month.
Hunter Biden requested an open hearing for his testimony on December 13th but the committee denied his request; he is still scheduled to appear for a private deposition at that time.
