Representative Jim Jordan, a Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed reports on Saturday that he’s gotten a commitment from Chairman Bob Goodlatte to begin firing some major shots at the FBI.
The representative from Ohio plans to subpoena top officials at the FBI and DOJ in the ongoing inquiry into claims of bias against President Donald Trump.
That’s right, they actually used the “s” word: subpoena!
Republicans in the House of Representatives have set their sights on FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, FBI attorney Lisa Page, and former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie.
Check it out, per Daily Caller:
“Chairman Goodlatte has told us he is going to subpoena those individuals,” said Jordan, a guest on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”
Host Jeanine Pirro opened her show with an attack on the FBI, calling it a “crime family.”
Strzok has become an individual of interest to Republicans as his obtained text messages illustrated a deep oppositon to Trump.
Although Democrats have shrugged off the correspondence as irrelevant, the sheer volume of the anti-Trump messages is a red light to Republicans on the committee.
Strzok was also integral in the FBI investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business. Special Counsel Robert Mueller asked Strzok to join his Russia investiation earlier this year — only to drop him like a hot potato when the agent’s prodigious texts came to light.
Representative Jordan stated that the revelations of last month show exactly how deep the prejudice against President Trump at the FBI and DOJ goes.
“President Trump won in spite of the Republican establishment being against him, the Democrats being against him, the elite media being against him and the FBI and Justice Department being against him,” Jordan made clear.
It’s about time that the Republicans in Congress began looking into the bias the FBI. Obviously, the Mueller investigation is little more than a political witch hunt and a direct result of Hillary Clinton’s meddling.
Until this sham is brought to a close, the real criminals and the toxic swamp creatures will remain at large and in charge…
