House Republican Jim Jordan said on Sunday he thinks “something is up” with the mainstream media’s recent flip-flop on the Hunter Biden laptop story.
According to Jordan, it “sure seems” that Hunter is on his way to being indicted – though he couldn’t say for sure, according to the Washington Examiner.
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.
“You mentioned those two stories from the Washington Post 10 days ago,” the Ohio Republican told host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News. “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.”
While the New York Post led the charge in reporting on the contents of the abandoned laptop, which contained emails detailing Biden’s business dealings and roller coaster personal life, other major media outlets sought to cast doubt on its authenticity, and Big Tech companies even took steps to suppress its spread in the final weeks of the 2020 election.

Zero Hedge added:
“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,” Jordan continued.
“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,” he added. “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.”
Bartiromo brought up that author Peter Schweizer said the laptop includes messages from Hunter that show at least $31 million in shady international dealings, as well as a 2019 message to his daughter complaining about covering family expenses.
“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” said Hunter. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
When asked to respond, Jordan said, “It sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” adding that there are “4.8 million reasons” to think Joe Biden is lying when he says there was nothing unethical about Hunter’s business dealings in China and Ukraine.
“The thing that bothers me the most, though, Maria, is the conspiracy,” said Jordan. “The Left always tries to — always says, ‘Oh, there’s these right-wing conspiracies.’ The real conspiracy here was the Democrats, Big Tech, Big Media keeping this story from the American people just days before the most important election we have, an election for president of the United States, election for who’s going to be the commander in chief.”
“Maybe worst of all” was the 51 ‘former intelligence officials’ who swore in an October 2020 letter that the Hunter Biden laptop story was likely Russian disinformation.
“That letter they wrote where they said this has all the earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign, that letter became the basis for Big Tech and Big Media to suppress this story and keep it from We the People in the run-up to our most important election,” said Jordan. “That’s why we sent a letter to these 51 guys. We want to know who they were talking to, how they came to this conclusion, how they put that letter together, because that was the basis for the conspiracy that kept information from the voters right up before the presidential election.”
