In Vandalia, Ohio, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan discussed an upcoming hearing focused on Hunter Biden’s business activities. He criticized what he perceives as a favorable bias towards President Biden in the investigation of his handling of classified documents. Jordan hinted at Hunter Biden’s initial openness to testify before the House, which was later retracted by his legal team. The hearing will feature testimonies from three of Hunter Biden’s business associates, Jason Galanis, Tony Bobulinski, and Devon Archer. Their accounts are expected to contrast with Hunter Biden’s previous statements, potentially shedding new light on the matter.

Jordan anticipates that the hearing will reveal discrepancies between the testimonies of these associates and Hunter Biden’s own statements. This comparison aims to provide the American public with clearer insights into the ongoing scandal. The hearing is part of a broader investigation into alleged corruption, which some Republicans believe could lead to an impeachment vote against President Biden. Despite reaching out for a comment, Hunter Biden’s legal team has not responded.

Speaking near Dayton, Ohio, Jordan referenced recent testimony by Special Counsel Robert Hur regarding President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. Jordan suggested that President Biden knowingly violated laws due to financial incentives from a book deal. This claim is supported by Hur’s report, which indicates Biden’s motivation for misusing classified documents. However, the White House disputes this interpretation of Hur’s findings.

Jordan criticized the decision not to prosecute President Biden, attributing it to perceived leniency due to his age. He highlighted the contrast in legal actions taken against President Trump, emphasizing what he sees as a double standard in the justice system. Legal experts, including Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley, have suggested that the case against President Biden contains more substantial evidence than that against Trump. Jordan agrees with this assessment, pointing to attempts to destroy evidence as indicative of obstruction and further evidence of a double standard.
