Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan believes there’s been a seismic shift regarding the ongoing federal investigation of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden. Jordan vowed that Republicans will look into the Biden family now that Republicans have control of the U.S. House.

In an interview on Fox News, the Ohio Republican suggested “something is up” with the probe because of a new interest in the story by many of the same media outlets that initially dismissed reports of corruption evidence stemming from materials and emails obtained from a laptop he reportedly abandoned at a computer repair store in Delaware in 2019.

Jordan told Bartiromo that it “sure seems” as though Hunter Biden is going to be indicted by federal officials and pointed to an increase in reporting regarding the authentication of contents of his laptop.

“Jim Jordan, how did this happen? How did the DoJ and the FBI become so politicized? We know what they did around the Russia collusion story. They had no evidence of collusion with Trump, and yet they pursued FISA warrants to aggressively spy and surveil is people within the Trump world,” Bartiromo said.

“I don’t know how it happened, but I know it has to change because America’s the greatest country in history, but we’re not America. America’s not America if you have a justice president that treats people differently under the law — Justice Department,” Jordan began.

“Whistleblowers have said at the highest levels, not the rank and pile, but at the Washington field office of the FBI, that’s where the politics is. One of these agents said it’s rotted at its core, that’s how bad it is. Look, remember this too if you need any more — go back to Mr. Smith again, Jack Smith. There was, back in 2013, the section that he ran at the Justice Department not only was looking for ways to prosecute the very people who were targeted by Obama’s IRS, but they also asked the IRS to give them confidential taxpayer information, and the IRS complied. Think about that. You had the Justice Department saying we want information we’re not supposed to get, give it to us, and the IRS gave it to them. So this is, it seems to me, a pattern. It has to change because if it doesn’t, we don’t have this,” he added.

“It sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” Jordan continued. “So, my, how this story has changed. And now, we find out these text messages and emails that link the entire family, not just Hunter and Joe and — but also uncle, the — Joe’s brother, James Biden, is involved in this, as well.”

It’s not just Jordan, either.

Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn and 32 other Senate Republicans are demanding special counsel powers for the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden.

The lawmakers say they fear Attorney General Merrick Garland or others at the Justice Department may attempt to meddle in the probe to protect President Joe Biden and his son.

“It is clear that Hunter Biden thrived off of a ‘pay to play’ culture of access to his father, then Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for financial compensation,” Cornyn and his colleagues wrote in the letter.

“Given that the investigation involves the President’s son,” the letter from Cornyn says, “we believe it is important to provide U.S. Attorney Weiss with special counsel authorities and protections to allow him to investigate an appropriate scope of potentially criminal conduct, avoid the appearance of impropriety, and provide additional assurances to the American people that the Hunter Biden investigation is free from political influence.”

Republicans also demand access to communication records between Hunter Biden and the Obama White House.

Prior to that, several Republican members of the House Oversight Committee penned a letter and sent it to the Biden Administration demanding they be given access to any and all communication records between Hunter Biden and the Obama White House.

In the letter, the Republicans said that Hunter must be investigated amid concerns that “he is continuing to profit off” his father’s name.
