‘Something Is Up’: Jordan Provides Updates On Two Major Probes


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

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan believes there’s been a seismic shift regarding allegations against President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Jordan 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.

“Well, what happened to that is you had 51 intelligence officers sign a letter saying that this Hunter Biden story was Russian misinformation when it wasn’t, and that changed — I think anyone can make a credible argument that that altered the outcome of the election and we no longer have Donald Trump in the White House because he was doing that, he was pushing back on China for the first time. And now, we have Joe Biden there and it’s exactly the opposite direction,” Jordan said.

“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 continued.


“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.”

The House Judiciary Committee is broadening its inquiry into the actions of the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office concerning the extraordinary indictment of former President Donald Trump.

Chairman Jim Jordan sent a letter to Matthew Colangelo, senior counsel for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, requesting a transcribed interview.

In December, the New York Times reported that Colangelo was brought on board four months ago to “jump start” investigations into Trump, after years of pursuing the former president at both the Department of Justice and the New York attorney general’s office.

“Given your history of working for law-enforcement entities that are pursuing President Trump and the public reporting surrounding your decision to work for the New York County District Attorney’s Office, we request your cooperation with our oversight in your personal capacity,” Jordan wrote.

During an unprecedented arraignment on Tuesday, Trump pleaded not guilty to a 34-count felony indictment that carries a maximum prison sentence of 136 years. The charges are related to hush-money payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016, a case that prosecutors had previously declined to pursue.

Despite the charges, a group of twelve liberal law professors and Trump critics have deemed the prosecution a dead end, citing the weak nature of the case, the outlet noted.

After getting stiff resistance from Bragg’s office regarding oversight requests, Jordan reminded Colangelo in his letter of Congress’s power to investigate his office.

The Supreme Court has recognized that Congress has a ‘broad and indispensable’ power to conduct oversight, which ‘encompasses inquiries into the administration of existing laws, studies of proposed laws, and surveys in our social, economic or political system for the purpose of enabling Congress to remedy them,’” the letter explained.

“Rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives authorizes the Committee on the Judiciary to conduct oversight of criminal justice matters to inform potential legislation. Congress has a specific and manifestly important interest in preventing politically motivated prosecutions of current and former Presidents,” it added.

According to a report from Fox News, the back-and-forth has prompted the committee to consider issuing official subpoenas to Bragg’s office.

Last week, Bragg was smacked down by a federal judge in his stand-off with Jordan.

Bragg dropped his appeal of the judge’s decision and will allow Pomerantz to testify before Jordan’s committee, ABC News reported.

The decision to drop the appeal came on Friday night after Bragg’s office said they had come to an agreement with the committee.

“Our successful stay of this subpoena blocked the immediate deposition and afforded us the time necessary to coordinate with the House Judiciary Committee on an agreement that protects the District Attorney’s privileges and interests. We are pleased with this resolution, which ensures any questioning of our former employee will take place in the presence of our General Counsel on a reasonable, agreed upon timeframe,” a spokesperson for his office said.
