GOP Vows Probes Into Biden Family After Midterms If They Win Back House

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is vowing that Republicans will launch probes into President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden if they win control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the midterms.

The Ohio Republican suggested “something is up” with the probe because of a new interest in the story by many of the same media outlets that initially dismissed reports of corruption evidence stemming from materials and emails obtained from a laptop he reportedly abandoned at a computer repair store in Delaware in 2019.

Jordan said that it “sure seems” as though Hunter Biden is going to be indicted by federal officials and pointed to an increase in reporting regarding the authentication of contents of his laptop.

“It sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” Jordan continued.  “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.”

Kentucky GOP Rep. James Comer, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee in line to be chair of the panel, said he will prioritize hearings and probes into the Biden family’s overseas business activities.


“The reason we’re investigating Hunter Biden is because we believe he’s compromised Joe Biden,” Comer said. “I think that’ll go a long way towards helping us be able to uncover some questions that the American people have about the ethics, and whether or not the Biden administration is truly compromised by Hunter’s shady business dealings.”

Last week, Jordan cautioned Republicans cannot become “overconfident” and take their foot off the gas pedal in the race toward November’s midterm elections.

“We should campaign confidently but never be overconfident. We need to push this thing through,” Jordan told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.

“The old line is, the guy who takes you to the Super Bowl gets to coach the game,” Jordan said. “So I think if we win, I think [Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy] is going to be the speaker. Then it’s important we do what we said we were gonna do, and do what the American people elected us to do.”

“We need to understand that and have the urgency … to make sure everybody — everybody — is showing up over the next 19 days, doing all they can to make sure we win the House and the United States Senate,” Jordan said.


North Carolina GOP Rep. Dan Bishop spoke highly of Jordan, saying he will “be helpful in holding the conference’s feet to the fire.”


“I think he is the change agent,” Bishop said, summing up Jordan’s mantra as de-emphasizing “antagonism with leadership” while helping “facilitate positive change.” Then Bishop attached a leadership-sized warning shot: “Half measures or business as usual are not going to be acceptable.”

Beyond that, Republicans are already turning up the heat on Hunter Biden.

Whistleblower disclosures appear to show that the “FBI is in possession of voluminous evidence of “potential criminal conduct” by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden related to his overseas business dealings with China and Ukraine,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley made the revelations in a letter that was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss — who is running the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.

“The whistleblower allegations relate to Hunter, as well as James Biden, the president’s brother, regarding the duo’s dealings with the Chinese government-linked energy conglomerate CEFC China Energy. They also relate to the younger Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas giant Burisma Holdings. Grassley said his staff “reviewed the unclassified records” supporting the whistleblower claims,” the Examiner reported.

“Based on recent protected disclosures to my office, the FBI has within its possession significant, impactful, and voluminous evidence with respect to potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden and James Biden,” Grassley said in the letter.
