Jim Jordan On Hunter Biden Texts: Joe Biden ‘Did Have Something To Do With It’

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

Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan is sounding the alarm over new Hunter Biden text messages and what they might mean for President Joe Biden.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, the Ohio Republican believes Biden was involved with his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings that are under federal investigation.

Text messages from Hunter’s computer left at a Wilmington repair shop reveal alleged complaints that he was using up to half of his salary to cover his father’s bills and other expenses, according to one statement he made to his daughter Naomi.

Below is a transcript of the exchange on Fox News:

JORDAN: “And maybe the worst of it all was what 51 former intelligence officials did. That — that letter they wrote where they said, this has all the earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign, that letter became the basis for Big Tech and big media to suppress this story and keep it from we, the people, in the run-up to our most important election. That’s why we sent a letter to these 51 guys. We want to know who they were talking to, how they came to this conclusion, how hay put that letter together because that was the basis for the conspiracy that kept information from the voters right up before the presidential election.”

BARTIROMO: “Yeah, we’re showing your letter on screen right now, and we also have the ‘New York Post’ headline ‘Spies Who LKe,’ with the faces of all of those. Right front and center are John Brennan and James Clapper on the cover of the ‘New York Post’ there, who lied and said that it was Russian disinformation. Let’s just be clear, Jim Jordan, these guys were key officials in the CIA and the other intelligence agencies. They would have known that this was not Russian disinformation when they signed their name, correct?”

JORDAN: “Maria, this is — great point. This is what makes this so wrong and so bad. This is no different than when Adam Schiff three years ago came forward and said, ‘Oh, there is more than circumstantial evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia.’ We didn’t think that statement was accurate at the time, but when the chairman of the Intelligence Committee goes on TV and makes that statement, he gets briefings that the American people don’t get. Frankly, he gets briefings that even I, as a member of Congress, don’t get. So when he says something like that, there’s added weight, the added emphasis put on that. Same thing with these 51 former intelligence officials. When they come out with a statement like this, you’re thinking, ‘Wow, these are guys who were supposed to be in the know, they were in the know when they were in the government,’ so there’s added weight to that. But when they mislead us, that makes it all the more wrong. That’s why we’ve got to get to the bottom of this because it’s happened more than once now and this is not supposed to be that way in our great country.”

During an interview on Sunday, Jordan told Bartiromo that it “sure seems” as though Hunter Biden is going to be indicted by federal officials though he said he could not say for certain.

“You mentioned those two stories from the Washington Post 10 days ago,” the Ohio Republican told host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News. “I understand they were four minutes apart. One was at 11:00. One was at 11:04. So two eight-page-long stories four minutes apart from the news organization that said 18 months ago there was no story here, this was Russian disinformation.”

That tells you something is up. You don’t see the Washington Post do that,” he added.

“Remember, it started off as, ‘Oh, it wasn’t his laptop.’ Then it was, ‘Well, it was his laptop, but it was Russian disinformation.’ Now it’s, ‘No, it wasn’t Russian disinformation, but Joe had nothing to do with it,’” Jordan said.

“And now, finally, it is, ‘Well, Joe had something to do with it, but he really didn’t do anything wrong.’ In fact, that’s what his chief of staff, Ron Klain, told us last Sunday on the Sunday shows,” he added.

“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 sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” Jordan told Bartiromo.

Hillary Clinton Campaign Pays $113,000 FEC Fine in Admission of Guilt for Producing Steele Dossier — Now Hopes Media Will Assist Them in Killing the Story

Published April 4, 2022

The DNC and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign agreed to pay $113,000 to settle a Federal Election Commission investigation into whether they violated campaign finance law.

That is according to documents sent Tuesday to the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which had filed an administrative complaint in 2018 accusing the Democrats of misreporting payments made to a law firm during the 2016 campaign to obscure the spending – Via Huffington Post.

Kash Patel, the former National Security Council Senior Director of Counterterrorism, and the lead investigator for Rep. Devin Nunes in exposing the FBI’s involvement in the debunked Trump-Russia dossier, says Hillary Clinton and the DNC now hope this massive scandal will all just go away.

Of course, they are counting on the fake news mainstream media in closing the curtains on this massive fraud they perpetrated on the American public.

The Epoch Times reported:

The lead investigator for the House Intelligence Committee’s 2018 probe into the FBI’s investigation of alleged Trump–Russia collusion, Kash Patel, said the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign is paying a penalty to Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an admittance of guilt. Clinton and DNC are doing so to bury the narrative and prevent more media coverage of these illegal activities, said Patel.

“I think the public sees what that is. It’s their way of burying the narrative, because if they contested what happens, more media coverage, more people start looking into these things,” Patel said.

“So the Hillary Clinton campaign is not contesting it, they’re paying the fine. It’s basically admitting that they did this and they’re out is: ‘we just don’t want a protracted legal deal, as if the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC ever shied away from taking something or someone to court,” Patel added.

Clinton’s campaign and the DNC agreed to pay a combined $113,000 to the FEC, according to documents made public on March 30, after the commission found probable cause that the entities violated federal law by describing payments that ultimately went to the Fusion GPS research group as going toward legal services and consulting.

Cuomo’s Revenge? Ousted CNN Anchor’s Legal Team Flagged Zucker’s Inappropriate Relationship

 Politico reports that Zucker’s inappropriate workplace relationship may have come to light after Chris Cuomo’s legal team raised issues about it.

In his memo, Zucker said he was asked about his relationship during an investigation into Chris Cuomo’s conduct. Two sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly said that Cuomo’s legal team, which continues to negotiate his exit from the network, raised issues about the relationship between Zucker and Gollust. Cuomo’s legal team asserted that Zucker was hypocritical to suggest Cuomo had a personal conflict of interest when the relationship with Gollust represented a potential conflict as well. Puck News’ Matt Belloni reported that CNN recently also received a letter from Cuomo’s lawyers demanding preservation of communications between Zucker, Gollust, and Cuomo. –Politico

Scorched earth!

Update (1218ET):

Former President Donald Trump is out with a Wednesday statement to gloat over the downfall of perhaps his #1 media arch-nemesis, Jeff Zucker.

“Jeff Zucker, a world-class sleazebag who has headed ratings and real-news-challenged CNN for far too long, has been terminated for numerous reasons, but predominantly because CNN has lost its way with viewers and everybody else,” said Trump. “Now is a chance to put Fake News in the backseat because there may not be anything more important than straightening out the horrendous LameStream Media in our Country, and in the case of CNN, throughout the World. Jeff Zucker is gone—congratulations to all!”

CEO head honcho Jeff Zucker announced his unexpected departure from the network after nine years, after investigators looking into the Chris Cuomo scandal uncovered a ‘consensual relationship’ with a colleague.

In a Wednesday statement, Zucker said that during the Cuomo investigation, “I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years. I have acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong.

“As a result, I am resigning today,” the letter reads.

Shedding more light is the NYT, which notes that Zucker “among the most powerful leaders in the American media,” was referring to Allison Gollust – executive VP and chief marketing officer.

“Jeff and I have been close friends and professional partners for over 20 years,” wrote Gollust. “Recently, our relationship changed during Covid. I regret that we didn’t disclose it at the right time. I’m incredibly proud of my time at CNN and look forward to continuing the great work we do everyday.”

Gollust will remain at the network in her current role, just not ‘under’ Zucker. She came to CNN in 2013 after leaving NBC, where she and Zucker had previously worked together for 15 years.

Maybe this explains a few things… or maybe not?

In 2017, the pair was seen arguing at a NY Media party that included Harvey Weinstein and others. According to one baffled rival exec reported by Page Six, “It looked like she was reprimanding her husband or something.”

To recap, over the last 12 months CNN has lost, or suspended, several key anchors and commentators over various scandals while their ratings have plummeted to embarrassing lows.

Who could be behind this?
