Jim Jordan Accused Of Doing The Bidding Of ‘Russia’s Intelligence Service’


After revelations this week tying an indicted source for high-profile allegations against President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden to Russian intelligence, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) accused Republicans who have led the concurrent impeachment inquiry targeting the president of doing that intelligence circle’s bidding.

“There you have it. James Comer and Jim Jordan have been doing the work of Russia’s intelligence service,” Swalwell, who serves on the House Judiciary Committee, asserted in an extensively viewed Tuesday post on X, the platform formerly called Twitter.

Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) currently leads the House Oversight Committee, while Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) leads the chamber’s Judiciary Committee. Both have helped steer House Republicans’ ongoing impeachment inquiry scrutinizing the president. The imploded allegations from the now charged informant for federal authorities involved claimed bribery. Specifically, official documentation rested with authorities here in the United States detailing the allegations of leadership at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma claiming millions of dollars worth of payouts for the Bidens, something never actually documented.

Republicans’ often maligned impeachment probe targeting the older Biden has focuses beyond the bribery claims, but Republicans have nonetheless extensively promoted those allegations, including with a public push for federal law enforcement holding the documentation of the claims to make the details available. Upon viewing by members of the House Oversight Committee, the panel’s Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) took the allegations particularly seriously, sharing a public recounting of the then-still secret government document’s contents. Materials were later made public.

Swalwell said the following day that Comer should resign. Outside the alleged bribery context, Comer and Jordan have also focused on… Hunter Biden’s involvement in contemporary art, running with the idea that the president’s son producing and selling artwork may be part of what Republicans have declared “influence peddling.” No specific evidence has seemingly tied the president to the art sales, which details suggest were conducted right in line with routine procedures in that sector.
