Jordan Announces Hunter Biden Special Counsel Agreed To Appear Before Congress

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has announced a timeline for testimony before the panel from David Weiss, the U.S. attorney-turned-special counsel who recently indicted first son Hunter Biden on a gun-related charge.

“David Weiss has committed to come in front of the committee on Oct. 18, so we can look forward to that,” Jordan said.

Jordan also presented alleged evidence linking President Joe Biden to his son, who, according to his attorney George Mesires, served on the board of Ukrainian energy corporation Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.

“You can boil this” question of Joe Biden’s alleged corruption “down to the Burisma situation,” Jordan noted further.

“Burisma, I think, captures it all. Hunter Biden gets put on the board; gets paid a lot of money. Fact No. 2: He wasn’t qualified to be on the board. Fact No. 3: The Burisma executives asked him, ‘Can you help us with the pressure we are facing?’ Fact No. 4: Joe Biden gets [Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin] fired — leverages American tax dollars to accomplish that,” he continued.

“And then what does the [Attorney General Merrick] Garland Justice Department do?” Jordan asked. “They try to sweep it under the rug, so much so that they allowed the statute of limitations to lapse for the most serious … felony tax concerns Hunter Biden had in 2014 and 2015. They let it lapse because those were the years that dealt with the Burisma income,” he noted further.

The developments come as the White House has appealed to allies in the “media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.”

After he left the vice presidency, Biden famously admitted to what appeared to be a “quid pro quo” during an event sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations. Biden said he had traveled to Kyiv on orders from then-President Barack Obama and demanded that the prosecutor be fired or he would withhold $1 billion in assistance.

Hunter Biden, who was charged as a result of Special Counsel David Weiss’s multi-year investigation, entered a not guilty plea in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on Tuesday morning.

The president’s son has been accused of making false statements about his drug use on a form he kept for 11 days in October 2018. If he is found guilty, he could spend up to 25 years in prison.

Hunter Biden, who agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor tax charges earlier this summer, could have avoided going to jail on the gun charges if he had been good for two more years.

The agreement would have avoided criminal proceedings, spared the Bidens weeks of headlines before the election, and marked the conclusion of a years-long investigation by federal prosecutors into the business dealings of the president’s son.

A judge had several concerns with the agreement, however, and it eventually fell apart.

Special counsel Weiss is now mulling filing tax charges against Hunter Biden. Biden could face further charges in either Washington or California, where he currently resides.

Amid the political upheaval, President Joe Biden is seeking reelection in 2024, and in the meantime, House Republicans are investigating whether or not President Biden’s business dealings involve the president, Hunter Biden.
