House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), suggested Monday that the Republican-led House of Representatives will likely move toward an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden when Congress reconvenes in September.
Jim Jordan appeared on “The Great America Show” on Monday, and told host Lou Dobbs that the mounting evidence against the Biden family was pushing the chamber towards a resolution to begin an impeachment inquiry when they return from recess in September.
“I think we’re very close. Lou, I really do. I would not be surprised at all if we have that resolution in September sometime when we’re back in in Congress, back in session, have that resolution and have a vote on it,” he said. “Now, the key is, if we’re going to do that, you need to you need to see if the full conference is supportive of that, because we’re not going to get any Democrat support and it should be driven by the facts, should be driven by the Constitution.”
“And I do think that that’s the direction we’re headed, because the evidence, you know, the left always says, ‘oh, there’s no evidence of Joe Biden.’ There’s tons of evidence out there,” he asserted. “There’s 20 different companies. There’s a nine different families getting paid. There’s there’s the WhatsApp message. There’s the 10% for the big guy email. There’s the testimony of Devin Archer. There’s the dinners, the phone calls, the meetings, for goodness sake.”
“And then there’s the actions Joe Biden took five days after that meeting in Dubai between Burisma officials and Hunter Biden and Devin Archer. Five days later, he goes to Kyiv and attacks the prosecutor there, the very prosecutor who our State Department said was doing was doing fine,” Jordan continued. “And they were willing to give $1 billion of American taxpayer money to Ukraine. So there’s all that. If that’s not evidence, I don’t know what is.”
“So, yeah, I do think it’s likely that we get to that point based on based on the facts and evidence that we’re uncovering,” he declared.
Jordan isn’t the only one suggesting that the House is moving towards considering impeachment. His remarks follow similar statements from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who recently suggested that the chamber may launch an inquiry to advance document requests with which the administration had not cooperated.
“The thing that holds up whether we do impeachment inquiry, provide us the documents we’re asking… If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for impeachment inquiry,” he said. “But if they withhold the documents and fight like they have now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know, we will move forward with impeachment inquiry when we come back into session.”
House Republicans are seeking bank and credit card statements, but McCarthy did not specify from which members of the Biden family.
“When Biden was running for office, he told the public he has never talked about business. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now prove is not true,” McCarthy alleged in the interview.
“If you’re sitting in our position today, we would know none of this if Republicans had not taken the majority,” he continued. “We only followed where the information has taken us. But this is rising to the level of an impeachment inquiry, which provides Congress the strongest power to get the rest of the knowledge and information needed.”
