(FeaturedNews.com) – Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, in a recent statement, noted that the GOP is not currently focused on impeaching President Joe Biden, despite there being a general push towards that direction. House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, has previously attempted to gain access to FBI records which could allegedly show that Biden had accepted bribes from other foreign nationals in exchange for exerting his influence on policy decisions. These allegations relate to his time serving as vice president during the Obama administration.
If the GOP decides to move forward with potentially attempting to impeach the President, then it would be up to the House Judiciary Committee to oversee the impeachment process. Still, Jordan has remained cautious in his approach to the accusations against Biden, stating that Republicans would only move towards impeachment if they had the necessary facts.
In an interview with Punchbowl News, he further remarked that when it came to people like Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the circumstances warranted impeachment, but that when it came to the President, the decision to impeach would need to be decided by his whole Conference and the Speaker. He added that currently, the focus is not on impeachment.
The White House has denied all the accusations regarding bribery, with Ian Sams, the White House spokesperson for oversight and investigations writing on Twitter that the Republicans are using “innuendo and insinuation,” and calling it a probe. He added that there is no evidence for any of the claims the Republicans are making and that these attacks are completely politically motivated.
