Jim Jordan Highlights Significant Shift in Hunter Biden’s Statement

On Wednesday, Hunter Biden, displaying defiance, opted not to attend his scheduled closed-door deposition with Congressional representatives.

Instead, he held a press conference on the Capitol steps, asserting his right to testify publicly. Despite assurances from House leaders that a public testimony would be allowed, protocol requires an initial closed-door hearing.

As a result, there are indications that House leaders are considering holding Hunter in contempt of Congress.

Congressional committee member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) informed reporters that Hunter’s statements during his press conference signify a significant shift in how Representatives will approach impeachment inquiry proceedings related to President Joe Biden.

Rep. Jordan shared his comments with reporters on Capitol Hill. One reporter asked: “Some Republicans I talked to…want to file articles of impeachment … Do you feel like you have seen enough now?”

Rep. Jordan replied: “I have said I think the evidence is compelling but we still need to talk [to some other witnesses.] We need to talk to the two individuals [who are a] part of Blue Star Strategies, Sally Painter and [inaudible].”

“Those are people we need to talk to,” Jordan added. “With the vote, we get those individuals in a more timely fashion and we get the documents we want.”

In discussing Hunter’s comments and possible impeachment proceedings for President Joe Biden, Rep. Jordan said: “…I think the biggest takeaway was the statement from [Hunter] Biden where he said, ‘My father was not financially involved in the business.”

“That is a huge change,” Jordan continued. “[It] means, sort of means he is involved. I think that’s how anyone with common sense would read it. He has been involved just not financially. That is a huge departure for everything they have said now for the last 3 1/2 years.”

Republican leaders have observed a shift in President Biden’s statements concerning his involvement in his son Hunter’s business affairs. An impassioned Jordan exclaimed, “The White House’s narrative has undergone multiple changes, and the Justice Department’s account has also evolved in how they handled this investigation. However, the testimony that remains unchanged and resilient under cross-examination is that of the two whistleblowers.”

Rep. Jordan continued: “Their story has not changed and frankly it’s been buttressed and reinforced…we’ve done eight different depositions of people involved in the investigation at the Justice Department…None of them have refuted what those guys say.”

“So over time it just keeps changing from the White House,” added Rep. Jordan. “This statement today I think is the biggest news of the morning I guess along with the fact he didn’t show up which he’s supposed to do.”

When questioned about the increasing evidence against him, which includes bank statements and emails from pseudonyms linked to him discussing business dealings with Hunter, President Biden dismissed them as “lies.”

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith said last Wednesday: “Hundreds of messages from alias emails raise questions of whether Joe Biden was trying to hide the existence and content of these messages. If investigators had not been stonewalled, the IRS investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax fraud and business dealings would have naturally laid bare Joe Biden’s direct involvement [in criminal activity].”
