Rep Jordan has had enough of the cover up at DOJ of blatant criminality and AG Sessions’ failure to cooperate with Congress in providing evidence, identifying and prosecuting
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) co-authored an op-ed in the Washington Examiner in which they called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to either do his job or resign. Jordan joined Steve Doocy to discuss both Sessions and the underlying problems at DOJ.
Doocy notes that Jordan has made this call before, but that the increased amount of leaking coming out of the FBI makes it appear that Sessions is not in control. Jordan points to a story last week in the New York Times in which four DOJ sources are alleging that the 28-year-old George Papadopoulos, and his drunken diatribe, was what prompted the Russia – Trump investigation.
Jordan says, “This is just too convenient. I think largely to draw attention away from what we believe was the focus of this investigation and what launched it, and that, of course, is the dossier. This is, as I said to someone before, kind of like, ‘Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.’ Pay no attention to all of this focus on the dossier we’ve had for a year now, it’s really something else. I just don’t buy it.”
“So the leaks continue,” says Jordan, “just this week they say, ‘Oh, now we’re going to start giving you the documents,’ well that’s a good step but where’s that been for the last six months?”
He says, “And of course we called [for] a special counsel seven months ago and to date it hasn’t been named. So all these things start to build up, not to mention the fundamental fact, why won’t you answer our questions when you come before the committee?”
Jordan raises a specific instance of Sessions’ stonewalling as an example, saying, “One of the central questions I asked him is ‘Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele?’ Were the taxpayers paying Christopher Steele, reimbursing Christopher Steele at the same time the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton campaign were paying him for this dossier?”
“That’s a fundamental question and he would not answer that in the committee hearing we had a few weeks ago,” says Jordan. Doocy points out the odd situation where President Trump’s own DOJ is stonewalling Congress who “simply are trying to get to the bottom of the same thing he wants to get to the bottom of.”
“This is no different from the treatment we got from Holder and Lynch when they ran the Justice Department,” says Jordan. Doocy asks, “Who’s running the show over there?” Jordan answers, “That’s the scary part, particularly when you think we called for a special counsel six months ago,” and then recaps all of the criminality and irregularities that have come to light in the time since, still without any corrective or investigative action on the part of the corrupt Sessions DOJ.
Asked what his message is for Sessions if he is watching the program, Jordan says, “I like Jeff Sessions. I just want you to do your job,” spelling out how they didn’t expect a continuation of the stonewalling and cover up of criminal activity under the Trump Justice Department.
Doocy asks the question that lies at the heart of the matter but which is roundly dismissed by the mainstream as “too conspiratorial,” that of whether or not the deep state permanent [shadow] government is responsible. Jordan indicates there are a lot of dirty cops at the top who have yet to be explained and leaves it at that, for now.
