Jim Jordan has joined the fray surrounding the recent Senate report on Hunter Biden’s activities, along with those of his family members as well. As I covered earlier today, the report lays out that Joe Biden clearly knew about his son’s dealings, as he had been warned about them by multiple Obama-era officials at the time. The elder Biden ignored those pleas to stop the conflict of interest and instead chose to lie to the country about what he knew and when he knew it. Because our media is so thoroughly in the tank and compromised, the current Democrat nominee has avoided further questions on the matter. That may change with the coming debate on Tuesday night.
Jordan is now demanding answers from the FBI for why they ignored what was going on with the Bidens and whether they are investigating now.
This per National Review.
Representative Jim Jordan on Thursday sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding that he provide answers on whether his agency is investigating allegations against Hunter Biden that appeared in a report by Senate Republicans this week.
The report by investigators for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs along with the Senate Finance Committee contained serious allegations of “potential criminal activity” against Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, including that he allegedly received a wire payment of $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow. The 87-page report also claimed that the younger Biden had business associations with Chinese nationals linked to the Chinese Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army and made payments to women who appeared to be linked to an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.
Wray has been an absolute disaster of an FBI Director, slow-playing the revelation of corruption around the Michael Flynn case and not taking the FISA abuse scandal seriously. He’s also recently decided to repeat talking points about white supremacy instead of pointing out the current threat that Antifa poses. In other words, he’s a status quo, company man through and through. You can expect him to keep that outlook here and not give Jordan the answers the people deserve.
Of note is that impeachment star George Kent’s closed-door testimony confirmed that the FBI had been informed of what was happening involving Hunter Biden early on. They apparently chose to ignore the obvious and look the other way.
didn’t tell the American public about his specific concerns last year. Kent was intentionally vague about Biden and Burisma during his 11/2019 public testimony but explicit in his concerns behind closed doors in July 2020. He said he told Biden’s office Hunter should “step down.”

Also of note is that Kent kept all of this quiet during his public testimony in which he played stooge for Adam Schiff and company. Yet, when under oath with the Senate, he was suddenly very talkative about the issues with Hunter Biden’s dealings and his father being Vice President at the time. Kent is quoted as calling the promotion of Burisma as a “moral hazard.” He also called their owner a “poster child for corrupt behavior.” But when the cameras were on, Kent played things off as if there was nothing to see in Ukraine and that Trump’s suspicions were suspect and possibly criminal themselves. It’s the kind of duplicitous garbage you’d expect from a career bureaucrat.
Impeachment was a total scam. The Senate report shows clearly that there was more than enough evidence to request an investigation of Hunter and Joe Biden’s workings in Ukraine. We now know that the former was dipping his hand in Russia as well, receiving a $3.5M wire transfer from a Putin surrogate without any explanation. If Chris Wallace doesn’t bring this up at Tuesday’s debate, he deserves to be labeled the hack he is. If this were Trump’s son, it’d be the top story and Pelosi would already have articles of impeachment drawn up. Joe Biden needs to answer for this and he doesn’t get to use his dementia as an excuse.
