The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, criticizes the Department of Justice for giving Hunter Biden “preferential treatment” and handling the matter in a “ridiculous” manner.
Jordan disputed on “Fox Across America” with Jimmy Failla that Joe Biden had never discussed business with his son Hunter’s colleagues.
“He was at two dinners with business partners and people. They’re doing business with whatever the business was. He’s at one of those dinners where it’s Elena Baturina, the Russian oligarch, the wealthiest woman in Russia, worth over $1,000,000,000. He didn’t just stop by, he just didn’t call in, he spent the entire dinner there with Hunter Biden, Devin Archer, and other people who they were doing business with,” Jordan blasted.
“So, yeah, again, their story from the Bidens keeps changing. The story from the Garland Justice Department keeps changing. But you know whose story hasn’t changed? The two whistleblowers came forward a couple of weeks ago. Their story and their testimony have been consistent. It’s been validated by an FBI agent. I think I’ll believe those guys over the Justice Department and the White House,” he went on.
“I think the big takeaway is nothing has changed at the Justice Department. I mean, John Durham told us how bad it was, that it was all a lie, Crossfire Hurricane. He told us they got incredible intelligence that said this whole thing, the Trump-Russia narrative, was from the Clinton campaign. So, the intelligence is credible enough that he briefed the president, the vice president, attorney general, the director of the FBI puts it in a memo,” Jordan explained.
“And Jim Comey doesn’t share that memo with the agents doing the case. I mean, that’s how wrong. And now we get to this situation. We have a whistleblower come forward and say they were denied information that they should have had. Hunter Biden got special treatment, preferential treatment, and they ran this case in a ridiculous way.”
“So that to me is the big takeaway. Nothing has changed at the Justice Department, which is why what we do with the appropriations process and our focus on not allowing FISA to be reauthorized in its current form is so darn important,” The Ohio Congressman concluded.
Listen to Jordan:
Jordan stated at the end of July that the GOP’s investigation into the Biden family’s finances has entered a “important final stage” as they investigate the family’s receipt of more than $17 million in foreign funds. In addition, they are investigating the alleged’special treatment’ of Hunter Biden by the Justice Department in the ongoing criminal investigation into the president’s son for tax and firearm-related offenses.
Jordan’s remarks coincide with a recent explosive claim that the president attended at least 24 meetings with Hunter’s business associates, including Devon Archer, despite the White House’s insistence that he has never been involved in his son’s business affairs. House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer will hear Archer testify that Joe spoke to Hunter’s business associates at least 24 times, including those at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
Jordan questioned, “What were the Bidens doing to get the money? I mean, 20 different shell companies, nine different Bidens getting paid. What was the service, the product, the value they add? The only logical explanation here is it was access to then-Vice President Biden.” Jordan told Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business.
Jordan responded that the consideration of articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland was “a question for the full conference.”
He added that “evidence keeps piling up,” adding that “the speaker has been very clear; Speaker McCarthy has said if we have to go to an impeachment inquiry, we will, in fact, do that.”
‘It sure looks like we’re moving in that direction at a quick pace, but that’s a question for the full conference.’
Republicans highlight inconsistencies in the public statements of Garland and U.S. Attorney Weiss regarding the Hunter case and the question of who had “full authority” to file charges against Joe Biden’s son.
Regarding the articles of impeachment against Joe Biden, Jordan stated that “more information needs to be compiled” and that “it may not be so much about the attorney general, although I think there are important things there, it could be more about the president himself.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley’s disclosure of an FBI FD-1023 form last week, which claimed that Joe and Hunter received $10 million from the CEO of Burisma as recompense for the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor while Biden was vice president, is a crucial piece of evidence, according to him.
According to Fox News, Jordan “told reporters on Monday that the House Oversight Committee’s hearing with Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s longtime friend and fellow Burisma board member, was “very productive.””
Jordan said during a lunch recess that he looked forward to discussing the revelations of the hearing with the committee’s chairman, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky.
The congressman also said, “Yep,” when asked if he heard any new information from Archer.
