Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that he expects a decision on the impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden next year ahead of the 2024 general election.
Jordan shared the insights during a Fox News interview on Sunday with Maria Bartiromo.

“I believe we will get the depositions and the interviews done in this calendar year and then make a decision early next year whether … the actual evidence warrants going to articles of impeachment and moving to that stage of the investigation,” Jordan said.
“But I think, this year, November, December, we will depose all these people we still need to depose, and then we can make a decision,” he added.

"Last week, House Oversight and Accountability Chair James Comer announced that he would be issuing subpoenas to Biden's family and associates, with the first subpoenas going out to Hunter Biden; the president's brother, James; and Biden family associate, Rob Walker," Newsmax reported.
"The subpoenas will tie in with the impeachment inquiry against the president, as what he's being accused of is 'a tale that is as old as time,' said Jordan," it continued.

"We're driven by the facts. We're driven by the evidence. Not by the politics like the Democrats are when they attacked President Trump," Jordan said.
"The congressman, who is a close Trump ally, was referring to the former president's two impeachments, in 2019 and then again in 2021. Trump also faces significant legal troubles, with multiple criminal indictments against him and a civil fraud trial underway in New York," Newsmax noted.
The president's impeachment could be passed in the House under the current GOP majority, but would unlikely succeed in the Senate where at least 60 votes would be required.
Instead, the inquiry may be more focused on hurting Biden's chances next year for reelection.
The details of massive business payment allegations could play a large role in the decisions by voters next year, with the outcome of the committee likely coming ahead of the election.
