(TheIndependentStar.com) – Articulating the forthcoming stages of the impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden stemming from Hunter Biden’s secretive business dealings, Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), currently chairing the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on Fox Business’s “Varney & Co.”
During the broadcast, Jordan delineated the House Republicans’ strategy, which involves issuing subpoenas to members of the Biden family and their business associates. These individuals are expected to participate in depositions before the House Republicans decide whether to proceed with impeachment against Joe Biden.
“We’ve got a handful more depositions to do, Stuart. We want to talk to Hunter Biden, we want to talk to James Biden — who did all this business together — and we want to talk to his business partners,” Jordan explained.
The inquiry commenced with a hearing in late September, where expert witnesses and IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler provided insights into the Biden family’s foreign business engagements.
Before this inquiry, Jordan issued a memo alongside House Oversight Chairman James Comer and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith. This document detailed the accumulation of over $24 million from foreign sources by the Biden family and its associates. Supporting documents for the whistleblower testimonies were also released by the Ways and Means Committee before the hearing.
In his discussion with Stuart Varney, host of Fox Business, Jordan shed light on the various committee roles in this inquiry. He mentioned the Ways and Means Committee’s involvement with the whistleblower accounts, Chairman Comer’s focus on suspicious activity reports and bank records, and his committee’s deep investigation through multiple depositions.
Significant revelations have emerged from these investigations. For instance, Comer released bank records in October and November showing financial transactions between members of the Biden family, including a $200,000 check from James to Hunter Biden and a $40,000 check from Sara to Joe Biden, labeled as loan repayments.
Jordan also discussed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss’ testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. Weiss confirmed that the statute of limitations had expired for potential tax charges against Hunter Biden for the 2014-15 tax years, during which he received substantial payments from Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
Weiss was appointed as special counsel in August to continue the Hunter Biden investigation. Additionally, in September, Hunter Biden faced an indictment on three federal gun charges, to which he pleaded not guilty in early October.
