Recent weeks have witnessed an unmistakable uptick in the amount of mainstream media coverage of the ongoing controversies surrounding first son Hunter Biden, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is of the opinion that “something is up” with regard to the federal probe of his financial affairs and that an indictment may well be in the offing, as the Washington Examiner reports.
Jordan’s remarks came during an appearance on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, and in the congressman’s estimation, it “sure seems” as though Hunter Biden could well be headed toward an indictment.
In support of that assertion, Jordan pointed to the flurry of recent acknowledgments regarding a damning laptop computer said to belong to the president’s son, information about which was censored by countless mainstream outlets prior to the 2020 presidential election.
The Ohio Republican explained to Bartiromo about the aforementioned rush of news coverage, “You mentioned those two stories from the Washington Post 10 days ago. I understand they were four minutes apart. One was at 11:00. One was at 11:04. So two eight-page-long stories four minutes apart from the news organization that said 18 months ago there was no story here, this was Russian disinformation. That tells you something is up.”
Noting the curious evolution of the Hunter Biden story of late, Jordan speculated that the investigation may be taking a turn that could ultimately ensnare the president himself. “Remember, it started off as, ‘Oh, it wasn’t his laptop.’ Then it was, ‘Well, it was his laptop, but it was Russian disinformation.’ Now, it’s, ‘No, it wasn’t Russian disinformation, but Joe had nothing to do with it,” stated Jordan.
That line of storytelling has, according to Jordan, now been twisted to become, “Well, Joe had something to do with it, but he really didn’t do anything wrong,” Jordan commented, adding, “So, my, his this story has changed.”
As the New York Post further reported, Jordan also asserted that text messages and other information retrieved from the infamous laptop computer are in direct contradiction to what President Biden has claimed about his son’s financial and business affairs.
“Remember what Joe Biden said in the debates 18 months ago, he said he didn’t do anything wrong and Hunter wasn’t taking money from business interests with connections to China,” Jordan said to Bartiromo. “There are 4.8 million reasons why that statement Joe Biden made was not accurate,” referencing $4.8 million in payments reportedly received by Hunter and the president’s brother, James Biden, from a Chinese energy company.
Jordan is not alone in sensing a real shift in the atmosphere surrounding the probe of Hunter Biden, with CNN analyst Elie Honig recently declaring, “This is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes” in which “[t]here is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges,” but whether the ensuing legal woes reach all the way up to the Oval Office is something that remains to be seen.
