Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has had his fill of President Joe Biden.

Jordan, one of the GOP majority in the U.S. House now leading various investigations of the Biden family schemes, including various international business deals that were very profitable, is scorching the president for making a Hunter Biden laptop letter “seem organic.”
It was the result of work by Biden’s own campaign officials and supporters.
The scandal developed just before the 2020 presidential election. Accurate reporting had surfaced about a laptop Hunter Biden had abandoned at a repair shop showing the Biden clan’s international business dealings and many other scandals.
Almost immediately, 51 former national intelligence officials signed off on a letter that, without evidence, claimed the laptop was “Russian disinformation.”
Signers included Barack Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan, Bush-era CIA Director Michael Hayden, former DNI James Clapper, former CIA Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash, former acting CIA Director Michael Morell and former National Intelligence Council Chair Thomas Finger.
They all claimed the laptop had “classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
But Morell now has testified before Jordan’s committee and that of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner, R-Ohio, that then-Biden campaign adviser Antony Blinken pushed for the letter, and that it was assembled in order to help Joe Biden in his campaign fight against Donald Trump.
Jordan, according to Fox News, charged that Joe Biden “wrongly” made the letter “seem organic.”
“When the story came out on Oct. 14, 2020, about the ‘Biden business operation’ and whether then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved, there was some concern that he was — then quickly it turns into this political operation — that letter that became the basis for suppressing the story and keeping it from the American people just days before the most important election we have,” Jordan said.
“The 14th, the [New York] Post has a story. The 17th, Tony Blinken… contacts Mike Morell and gets him interested in this. Mike Morell looks at it the next day, organizes on the 18th all these other people to sign the letter. The 19th, the letter goes out,” he said.
Fox reported Jordan charged that Morell “concocted” the letter to be used for a presidential debate when President Trump was expected to raise the issue of the scandalous information that had been revealed about the Bidens.
The report said, “Morell and Blinken wanted a statement Joe Biden could use to rebut Trump’s likely allegations.”
Jordan continued, “The way then-Vice President Biden did it was he made it seem like it was organic — and understand it was choreographed all the way. … And that letter became the basis for keeping this information from the American people.”
A year ago, as Republicans were planning how to take back the House, Jordan said the party must consider impeaching Biden for several offenses in office.
“I think that’s definitely a discussion we have to have,” he told the Washington Times.
“The conference has to decide,” Jordan added. “You have to have complete buy-in from the entire conference and the leadership of our conference.”
