Jim Jordan says unanimous impeachment vote will help court case

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) said on Breitbart News Saturday that the House's unanimous Republican vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden will "help us in court."

The House voted 221 to 212 Wednesday to move forward and investigate Biden, which was already being done before the vote but is now formalized.

“I think you hit on something really important: that every single Republican voted to do this,” Jordan said. “I think that is huge because the conventional wisdom was, ‘Oh, they don’t have to vote, and if they do, they’re going to be some Republicans [who] voted,’ but every single Republican voted for it.”

Jordan said he believes the vote will make it easier to get documents and witnesses.

“So that’s why it’s significant. And I think it was a pretty important day, and we’ll continue to do our work, and then at some point, we’re going to make a decision on whether we actually think Articles of Impeachment are warranted,” he added.

For some Republicans, it seems like the process is moving at a snail's pace and may never get to the point of dealing with what Biden may or may not have done.
