Jordan calls out Biden, says he sidestepped addressing family wealth
Representative Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, denounced President Biden, saying he was trying to bypass his wealth on Wednesday.
“I had the great pleasure of being listed as the poorest man in Congress for 36 years. I was still making a hell of a lot more money than anyone else because I was receiving a senator’s salary, ”Biden said Tuesday in New Hampshire. “I didn’t think you should be making money when you are in the office.”
Jim Jordan responded in “The Ingraham Angle,” saying, “There are 4.8 million reasons why this statement is untrue, inaccurate, because his son paid so much.”

“We now know from those text messages and emails that it was a family business,” said Jordan, host Laura Ingraham.
“It was like that for a long time. It’s only now starting to come to the surface.”

Jordan continued: “The press must now admit that what we all said 18 months ago was true. The laptop was real. The eyewitness was real. The e-mails were genuine. Everything was real.”
He later noted that Hunter Biden “took money from all kinds of foreign interests that were the worries and opponents of the United States at the time.”
