Could Hunter Biden soon be indicted and dragged into court for his various misdeeds? GOP firebrand Rep. Jim Jordan thinks so. He, as the Washington Examiner notes, thinks that an indictment of Hunter Biden is on its way. As that outlet put it:
Rep. Jim Jordan said on Sunday it “sure seems” the president’s son is on his way to being indicted, though the congressman acknowledged he could not say for certain. He pointed to an upswell in reporting on the authentication of contents on a laptop believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden, coinciding with a wave of grand jury activity.
Speaking about that upswell in attention paid to the Hunter Biden story and how those outlets that didn’t give it a bit of attention back when it mattered are now publishing multiple stories on the topic and finally giving it its due, Jordan is quoted by the Examiner as saying:
“You mentioned those two stories from the Washington Post 10 days ago. I understand they were four minutes apart. One was at 11:00. One was at 11:04. So two eight-page-long stories four minutes apart from the news organization that said 18 months ago there was no story here, this was Russian disinformation. That tells you something is up. You don’t see the Washington Post do that.”
Adding to that and explaining how the narrative about Hunter, at least as told by the corporate press, has shifted over time, Rep. Jordan said:
“Remember, it started off as, ‘Oh, it wasn’t his laptop.’ Then it was, ‘Well, it was his laptop, but it was Russian disinformation.’ Now it’s, ‘No, it wasn’t Russian disinformation, but Joe had nothing to do with it.'”
“And now, finally, it is, ‘Well, Joe had something to do with it, but he really didn’t do anything wrong.’ In fact, that’s what his chief of staff, Ron Klain, told us last Sunday on the Sunday shows. So, my, how this story has changed. And now, we find out these text messages and emails that link the entire family, not just Hunter and Joe and — but also uncle, the — Joe’s brother, James Biden, is involved in this as well.”
Unfortunately, Rep. Jordan didn’t have other evidence to present to prove his point that Hunter might be indicted, such as a tip from an insider or hint from law enforcement.
But his view on what the shift in the media’s narrative means is compelling; unless something were about to happen, why would far-left networks that covered for Biden for so long now start working to promote the truth about what Hunter was up to and what’s on his laptop?
Unless they’re covering themselves in preparation for a major shift in how Hunter’s treated, such as an indictment, the change in how they are treating the story doesn’t make much sense.
So, while it would have been better for Jordan to bring actual evidence that Hunter is soon to be indicted, his take on what the narrative shift represents very well could be true.
