Jim Jordan Drops Update On Biden Impeachment Status

President Joe Biden may have to face impeachment charges early in 2024, according to a leading House Republican.

On Sunday, Representative Jim Jordan from Ohio said that the House panel that he is on, the Oversight Committee, would make its decision on whether to bring formal impeachment charges early in the new year.

The committee is conducting an impeachment inquiry right now into Biden’s entire family. Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced back in September that the inquiry was starting.

The focus of the investigation is whether the president was involved at all with his son’s foreign business dealings. On multiple occasions, the White House has denied that the president had any involvement at all with the business dealings of his son Hunter.

Recently, James Comer, who serves as the House Oversight Committee’s chairman, signed subpoenas for both Hunter as well as his brother James. Subpoenas were also signed for other members of the Biden family as well as one of Hunter’s former associates, Rob Walker.

Hunter Biden himself has been asked to sit for a deposition on December 13. Walker’s deposition is currently scheduled to be held on November 29, while James Biden’s is scheduled for December 6.

Appearing on the “Sunday Morning Futures” program on Fox News this past weekend, Jordan outlined the timeline for the Biden family probe.

As he told the program’s host, Maria Bartiromo:

“I believe that we will get the depositions and the interviews done in this calendar year and then make a decision early next year whether there are actual … the evidence warrants going through articles of impeachment and moving to that stage of the investigation.

“We have a constitutional duty to do oversight. We’re now in the impeachment inquiry phase of our oversight duty. 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, who is considered a close ally of Trump’s, was referring to the two impeachment proceedings that Democrats brought against former President Donald Trump in 2019 and in 2021.

The White House, of course, says that Republicans in the House are just out to get Biden.

In a memo sent last week that addressed the recent subpoenas, Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House, said:

“With just over a week to go until House Republicans may again thrust the country into a harmful and chaotic government shutdown, the most extreme voices in their party like James Comer are trying to distract from their repeated failures to govern.

“Instead of using the power of Congress to pursue a partisan political smear campaign against the president and his family, extreme House Republicans should do their jobs.”

Part of the subpoenas issued are seeking bank records from both James Biden and Hunter Biden, as well as having some of the former associates of Hunter’s testify in front of Congress.

House Republicans have said they believe that the entire Biden family has received in total in excess of $24 million from different foreign nationals from countries such as Kazakhstan, Romania, Ukraine, Russia and China over a period of five years.
