Jim Jordan denied the questionable nature of evidence used in his investigation of Joe Biden when confronted by a CNN reporter.

Jordan had cited claims from ex-FBI informant Alexander Smirnov, who was recently indicted for falsifying bribery allegations against Hunter Biden related to his work for a Ukrainian energy company.

Smirnov admitted Russian intelligence was involved in advancing the phony claims.

When pressed, Jordan maintained the investigation’s “fundamental facts” were still valid, pointing to Hunter Biden’s role on the company board despite lacking qualifications.

Rep. Jordan said, “Hunter Biden was put on the board of Burisma and gets paid a million dollars a year. Fact number two, he’s not qualified to be on the board. He said so himself in an interview with, I don’t know, you or some network.”

He continued, “Burisma specifically asked Hunter Biden, ‘Can you weigh in with D.C. and help us deal with the pressure we are facing from the prosecutor?’ Fact number four, Joe Biden, then he gets called — Hunter Biden calls his dad, according to Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s business partner. Fact number four, Joe Biden goes to Ukraine three days later and conditions the release of the money, American tax money, on the firing of the prosecutor who was applying the pressure to the company that Hunter Biden sat on the board of.”

Raju said, “You said the 1023 is the most corroborating piece of information you have.”

The reporter retorted that Smirnov’s initial assertions used as key evidence were now known to be untrue, but Jordan insisted the facts had not changed.

The exchange highlighted Jordan’s refusal to acknowledge problems with a central piece of evidence fueling his probe of the Biden family’s Ukraine dealings.
