Jim Jordan Discovers A ‘Central Theme’ To His DOJ, FBI Investigations


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has made a major discovery of sorts as he and the panel he leads continue probes into alleged politicization of the Department of Justice and the FBI.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, the Ohio Republican said he has found there is a “central theme” to all such investigations into federal government corruption, especially when under Democratic control.

“With all these things that we start to investigate, it seems to me that the central theme is — the only thing we get wrong is — it’s always worse than we thought,” Jordan said, adding that he hopes some Democrats will work with the GOP majority to root out corruption and hold leaders accountable, Fox News reported.

In the interview, Jordan detailed the various investigations currently being undertaken by the House Judiciary Committee and his Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government in the 118th Congress.


“We thought the government was pressuring Big Tech to do certain things on the Hunter Biden story, and then, the Twitter files come out, and we’re like, ‘Oh, it’s worse than we thought,’” Jordan said.

“We thought that it was likely that COVID came from a lab and turns out, yep, it was,” Jordan said, in reference to the Energy Department and FBI Director Christopher Wray saying last week that the coronavirus likely originated from a lab leak in Wuhan.

“The whole Trump-Russia thing, we find out they knew the dossier was false but used it,” Jordan went on.

“There are just examples after examples where it is actually worse than we initially assumed upon opening investigations,” Jordan added. “You look at all of these things, and different agencies targeting the American people who they are supposed to serve — whether it is the CDC or the DOJ and FBI and social media companies taking down things and limiting speech. And Democrats always seem to just move on.”

In December, Jordan said he believes the ongoing federal investigation of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden is about to take a big step forward after recent developments.

In an interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, the Ohio Republican suggested “something is up” with the probe because of the uptick in 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.


“So that’s what happened. That’s why this is all connected because the influence of big media, big tech, and big government in impacting our election — I think we said this last week, Sean. My colleagues had this in the committee a few weeks ago, Matt Gaetz. He said, when will the FBI stay out of elections and let us, the people, decide? In 2016, they went after Trump’s campaign, 2018, it was a Mueller investigation, 2020, they suppressed the Hunter Biden story, 2022, 91 days before the midterm election, they raid his home, and now, just two weeks ago, three days after he announces for the 2024 race, they name a special counsel and it’s not just anybody, it’s Jack Smith and the record that he has of weaponizing the government to go after the people,” Jordan said.

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

Last month, Jordan called out Democrats on the Judiciary Committee after a stunt regarding an important hearing that pertains to a critical issue of national importance, as he renewed a vow to conduct invasive probes into Joe and Hunter Biden and the FBI.

He lambasted Dems on the committee after they refused to attend a Yuma, Ariz., hearing on border security, even as millions of people have crossed illegally into the country and fentanyl being smuggled in from Mexico is killing tens of thousands of Americans annually.
