Jordan Calls On DOJ To Release Evidence Of Biden’s Classified Docs Before Election


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan said the U.S. Department of Justice must notify the public about President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents.

Jordan made an appearance on Fox News to address the DOJ’s denial of providing the president’s subpoenaed interview footage. The interviews took place amid a report on the classified documents that Biden had in his possession by special counsel Robert Hur at the time.

After interviewing Biden last year, Hur’s office concluded that he lacked a “mental state of willfulness” and that, as a result, it would be difficult to persuade a jury to convict him for his handling of classified documents.

Jordan observed that Democratic politicians have repeatedly evaded punishment for mishandling classified information.

It has been reported that the chairman has issued a subpoena for Mark Zwonitzer, the writer behind Joe Biden’s 2017 memoir, Promise Me, Dad. This subpoena is about allegations made by Jordan that Biden may have shared classified information with Zwonitzer.


According to Jordan, the book made approximately $8 million in sales, which he believes is enough of a motive for Biden to share classified information. Additionally, during Hur’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, he revealed that the White House counsel requested edits to his report before its release.

Below is a transcript of the exchange on Fox News:

BARTIROMO: “Check for $3.5 million to the Biden clan.”

Jordan: “Yeah. Yeah. Part of this real estate investment entity that they were working on together. But she, in fact did that. I mean, and that’s the big picture. You know, what you played the clip from Hunter Biden he said baseless inquiry. We got millions of dollars from foreign entities flowing through 20 different companies for what? What was the service? What were they selling? What were they offering? And Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s business partner told us in his deposition it was for access to the brand. And the brand was Joe Biden. The brand who played rounds of golf, took phone calls and meetings, attended lunches and dinners with Hunter Biden and his business associates, the brand who conditioned $1 billion of American tax money on the firing of the prosecutor who was investigating the company Hunter Biden sat on the — on the board up and was receiving a million dollars a year. That’s — that’s what we’re talking about here. So this idea is baseless is just ridiculous. The country can see what was going on here. And Mr. Bobulinski, Mr. Galanis will talk about when Joe Biden showed up and when Joe Biden was actually involved in these things. That’s what we’re going to hear. And the contradictions of when Hunter Biden testified under oath, what he said versus what all his partners, who he no longer has any relationship with, what they said under oath.”


BARTIROMO: “So — so that’s a policy decision, get the former prosecutor in Ukraine fired. You’re saying you believe Joe Biden and his family was paid for making that policy decision, to go against the Ukraine prosecutor. Is that one — I’m trying to connect the dots, if they did anything that is actual policy that affects more than just the family, the country, and is he getting paid for that?”

Jordan: “The State Department had sent the prosecutor letter saying you’re doing a good job just a few months before Joe Biden goes over there and conditions the release on the money — of the money on the firing of that same prosecutor. That prosecutor was actually looking into Burisma and Zlochevsky, the CEO of that Ukrainian energy company. The one before him, allowed him to have $23 million that had been seized, allowed to have it back. The one after him dropped the charges. So the one in the middle who’s actually doing the investigation, that’s the one who gets fired. And oh, by the way, the State Department as well as the inner agency policy committee all said, ‘Don’t fire the guy, focus on —‘ excuse me, ‘Don’t condition the release of the money on the firing of the guy.’ But Joe Biden makes a game time decision. He calls an audible on the flight over. And it was right after he got a call from his son, according to Devon Archer saying, ‘Hey, we need relief from this pressure we’re getting from the prosecutor.’ I think that’s pretty important facts. Remember this too, Maria, Hunter Biden gets put on the board of Burisma, gets paid a million dollars a year. Hunter Biden wasn’t qualified. He told us that in an interview he did. He said himself he wasn’t qualified. Hunter Biden gets asked by Zlochevsky to relieve the pressure they’re under. Four days later Joe Biden flies to Ukraine and conditions the release of the tax dollars on the firing of the prosecutor applying the pressure. Those facts are fundamental.”


Jordan: “They’ve never changed. So that to me is the key, when you — when you couple it with all the other information we have, that’s what was going on here.”
