Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) is accusing the U.S. intelligence community of working directly to impede the GOP’s investigation into the Biden family’s alleged selling of American influence for millions of dollars to foreign powers, including enemies like Russia and China.
Jordan said in a letter to the Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, “Floris and Benavides made it unequivocally clear that ODNI and its Notification Framework were integral to the pretextual ‘defensive’ briefing meant to frustrate and obstruct congressional oversight into the Biden family’s overseas influence-peddling operation.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is investigating whether members of the U.S. intelligence community obstructed congressional investigations into President Joe Biden and his family.
Mr. Jordan’s inquiry specifically pertains to an Aug. 6, 2020 “defensive” briefing the FBI held for Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). At the time of the briefing, the pair of Republican senators were actively investigating the business dealings of then-candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Then-FBI Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Nikki Floris and then-FBI Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) Section Chief Bradley Benavides provided the controversial briefing.
