House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has provided another big update on the investigation into President Joe Biden.

During an interview on Fox News, the Ohio Republican said it’s “ridiculous” for Hunter Biden to say that the evidence is “baseless” as the “country can see what he was involved in.”

“Part of this real estate investment entity that they were working on together. But she, in fact did that. I mean, 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?” Jordan began.

“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,” Jordan said.


He added, “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.”

“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,” Jordan said.

“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,” he said.


“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,” Jordan declared.


“Remember this too, 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,” Jordan said.

“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 added.

Jordan concluded, “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.”
