Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) had a walkover in this election.
With no threat of losing his seat, he is starting to concentrate on what will happen once he becomes the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.
And believe me, he has some pretty big plans.
Watch Out, FBI
The alphabet boys are going to have a problem with Jordan.
Whistleblowers have been coming out of the woodwork to talk to him, and what they have told him has him chomping at the bit to get to FBI leadership.
Jordan stated, “We’re committed to getting after that as aggressively as we can, and doing it in a way that is consistent with the Constitution.
“I will just tell you what our report said, because one of the whistleblowers came to us — and it was supported by others — that the FBI leadership — again, not rank-and-file agents — but the FBI leadership, and specifically the Washington Field Office, is rotted to its core.
“That means you’ve got to have a major overhaul, and the way you do that in Congress is you show exactly how bad it was — that’s our job — and then, hopefully, by showing it, that pushes them back and gets them to throttle back all the crazy things they’re doing, and then you have to get a new president who will bring in the appropriate attorney general who’s willing to fix things up and clean things up.”
He concluded, “You don’t have this great country if you have a Justice Department that’s political, that is targeting its political opponents and not treating people equally under the law, and that, unfortunately, is what we have in a huge way, as evidenced by the record number of FBI agents who have come to talk to us as whistleblowers.”
Translation… Director Wray, you better hire an attorney.
