FACT CHECKING JIM JORDAN: No, There Is No Case For Impeaching President Biden

May 6, 2024


Jim Jordan told Punchbowl News recently that impeachment is still an open case, declaring, “The case is compelling.”


Jim Jordan, James Comer, and other MAGA House Republicans have spent over a year relentlessly investigating President Biden and have not found a single shred of evidence indicating wrongdoing by him – let alone an impeachable offense.

But don’t just take our word for it! Republican lawmakers have spent months admitting that they have failed to present any impeachable evidence.
