The White House Gets Real With James Comer And Jim Jordan On Biden Impeachment
It seems the White House is done playing games with House Judiciary and Oversight Committee Chairs Jordan and Comer. Jim Jordan explained that once Republicans have Hunter Biden’s testimony, they plan on moving forward with impeaching President Biden.
Rep. Jordan didn’t leave any room in his potential schedule for the idea that Republicans won’t move forward with Biden impeachment. No matter what Hunter Biden would say in his testimony, Republicans will use it in their impeachment charges.
The White House is not playing along.
NBC News reported on a letter that they obtained that the White House sent to Comer and Jordan:
In a letter obtained by NBC News, White House counsel Richard Sauber called the requests for information and interviews “unjustified,” and characterized the overall impeachment inquiry as “illegitimate.” The letter, dated Friday, was addressed to House Oversight Chair James Comer, R-Ky., and Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.
“Your latest steps follow an irresponsible set of subpoenas and requests for interviews that you launched last week, directed to multiple members of the President’s family, all of whom are private citizens, including for example the President’s deceased son’s widow and her sister,” Sauber wrote. “These unjustified requests were sent despite the fact that, after a year of investigating, voluminous records and testimony from dozens of witnesses have refuted your baseless allegations about the President.”
Besides the issues that the White House laid out above, there is also the not-so-small issue that the House never took a vote to authorize the impeachment investigation.
The Biden White House isn’t going to go along with this, and what comes next could get ugly for Comer and Jordan.

The White House Is Signaling That They Are Going To Challenge The Subpoenas In Court
The White House could challenge the subpoenas in court, and if they do, Comer and Jordan will have to prove the legitimacy of their investigation, which could be difficult because they don’t have any evidence that President Biden did anything wrong.
The House never officially launched an impeachment investigation. Jordan and Comer admitted during the joint hearing that they held that they were not holding an impeachment hearing because they were not authorized to hold an impeachment hearing.
House Republicans have had an easy ride so far with their failed Biden investigation. They have gotten no mainstream media traction, because they get angry if any actual mainstream reporter asks to see the evidence against President Biden.
The President and the White House have refused to give the bogus investigation any oxygen by challenging it, but if Republicans have to prove actual legitimacy for their investigation, the scam could fall apart very quickly.
Joe Biden and the White House are springing into action.
Things just got real for James Comer and Jim Jordan.
