According to GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, of Ohio, said that if the Republican Party takes back control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, the controversies surrounding President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, should be thoroughly investigated.
Jordan said that the financial dealings of the younger Biden, which were brought to light during the 2020 presidential campaign, is one of several issues that should be probed.
The representative said the investigation should come whether it is conducted by the House Oversight and Reform Committee or the House Judiciary Committee, which would likely be chaired by Joran next year.
“I think there’s real investigative work that needs to happen there. No doubt about it,” Jordan said. “We’ve talked about a joint investigation into Fauci and the whole lab gain of function, American tax dollars being spent towards the Wuhan Institute of Virology … but with Hunter Biden, it may be us or may be more with [Rep. James Comer] in oversight.”
Jordan, who was scheduled to speak on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, said that he sees the biggest threat facing the nation as the deterioration of the First Amendment.
“Every right we have as Americans under the First Amendment has been assaulted – the right to practice your faith, your right to petition the government, your right to assemble, freedom of the press, freedom of speech,” said Jordan. “That right to me is the most important in highlighting what the left is doing to the First Amendment. People are afraid to talk about it.”
Currently, Jordan is chairing the GOP conference’s Future of America Freedoms task force which was initiated last year by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Other than the First Amendment issues, Jordan added that he would like to see progress made in passing legislation aimed at Big Tech abuses and expand oversight on the Justice Department and the southern border.
