Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is chomping at the bit.
With his election firmly in hand and the GOP likely to take over the House, Jordan has his sights set on some rather big investigations.
Jordan will chair the House Judiciary Committee if the GOP takes over, and the FBI is at the top of his list.
FBI whistleblowers have been flocking to Jordan.
What he is learning is more than a bit disturbing, but he plans to get to the bottom of it.
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.”
Jordan is by far one of my favorite congressmen to watch during committee hearings, and I would imagine there will be a lot of must-see TV coming our way very soon that will involve FBI Director Wray.
