Rep Jim Jordan knows the massive nature of the corruption at DOJ and the kind of effort required to clean it up, expose the offenders. If Sessions won’t do his job then step aside
Prior to the testimony of FBI Director Christopher Wray before the House Judiciary Committee, on which Rep Jim Jordan serves, Jordan is asked about the festering mess at the Department of Justice.
He’s asked, “How do we actually get to the bottom of whether or not there has been a double standard for how this President is treated by the FBI and how Hillary Clinton is treated?” Jordan gives a preview into his line of questioning, saying that you start by having FBI Director Wray “release the application that was taken to the FISA court to secure warrants to spy on Americans associated with the Trump campaign.”
Jordan recaps the ongoing madness of Mueller investigating “possible” coordination between the Trump campaign and Russians to influence the election, noting, “To date we have zero evidence of that taking place.” He contrasts that against what we’ve learned in that past few weeks, “That the Clinton campaign paid the law firm, who paid Fusion GPS, who paid Christopher Steele, the MI6 agent, who paid Russians.”
He continues, “The Clinton campaign paid Russians for this report, this dossier, and it’s been reported that this dossier was all dressed up by the government, taken to the FISA court and it became the basis to spy on Americans.” Jordan believes that’s what happened but notes that Christopher Wray, the FBI, the Attorney General or Rod Rosenstein can clear this all up. All they have to do is release the applications and prove him wrong.
He’s asked, “If Jeff Sessions won’t do it, is the [recusation] so big that he can’t do his job, if he won’t and can’t investigate this, should he step aside?” Jordan points out that Sessions “doesn’t know where his recusal starts and stops, that was evident two weeks ago in questioning in front of the judiciary committee.”
Jordan issues an ultimatum, saying, “If you’re not going to appoint a special counsel to get the answers to this question and a host of others, if you’re not going to do it then he should step down. That was in the op-ed that Mr. Gaetz and I put out two weeks ago.”
He says, “If Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Wray and Mr. Sessions aren’t going to make this application public so the American people can learn…”
Jordan shifts gears, saying, “Think about what took place, maybe, if this actually happened, if you had the government working with one campaign to dress up a fake news, National Enquirer, garbage report, to dress it up as intelligence, take it to the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on the other campaign, that should not happen in this country.”
“He needs to appoint a second special counsel,” says Jordan, pointing out that Mueller is compromised and Sessions has recused himself so the only logical way to get answers is to appoint a second special counsel. He declares, “And if the Attorney General is not going to do it, frankly, I don’t think he should be the Attorney General.”
