Recent revelations by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) suggest that the alleged misconduct linked to President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, could soon usher in a new impeachment inquiry. The allegations concern the so-called “Biden brand” that Hunter sold to foreign business associates – a brand that, according to Jordan, was no other than President Biden himself.
Jordan told Breitbart News how Hunter put then-Vice President Biden on speakerphone in business meetings over 20 times to sell the Biden brand. Instances were outlined where Hunter used the brand to favor his associates. In one such event, he allegedly facilitated a dinner where his father met with Yelena Baturina, the billionaire ex-wife of Moscow’s longtime mayor, at Café Milano in Washington, D.C.

A transaction following this dinner – a reported $3.5 million payment sent by Baturina to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a company owned by Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer – raises serious questions, especially considering Baturina’s absence from the Biden Administration’s sanctions list.
Jordan made it clear that the brand was being leveraged for political influence. In another instance, Hunter and two Burisma executives allegedly sought help from Washington, D.C., to get Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired. Shokin, at the time, was investigating Burisma for corruption.
During a visit to Ukraine, Joe Biden later bragged about the firing of Shokin in 2018. According to Jordan, these instances implicating the president’s involvement could lead to an impeachment inquiry. He believes House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is now willing to entertain moving forward with the process.
If such an inquiry were to occur, Greene, a staunch supporter of the idea, believes it would change the minds of some House Republicans who oppose impeachment. She shared her view with Breitbart News that an impeachment inquiry could help bring more information to light and strengthen the House’s subpoenas. Even though a few House Republicans remain opposed to impeachment, Greene emphasized that launching an inquiry is crucial to sway their opinions.

McCarthy’s indication of possibly initiating an impeachment inquiry into President Biden if powerful allegations continue to surface was praised by Greene and welcomed by several Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee. Greene defended McCarthy against the label of a “Republican in Name Only” (RINO), stating that his potential move toward an inquiry speaks volumes about his commitment.
Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Harriet Hageman (R-WY) echoed these sentiments. They believe an impeachment investigation is necessary to hold the Biden Administration accountable for corruption and misuse of government agencies for political ends.
The details of the “Biden brand” issue and Hunter Biden’s dubious business dealings have created a stir among House Republicans. The potential for an impeachment inquiry is becoming more palpable by the day, with representatives like Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene leading the charge. As new information continues to come to light, the urgency for such an inquiry is clear.
