Jim Jordan Demands to Know Who's 'Going to Jail' for Hillary Clinton Investigation
Republican lawmaker calls for answers regarding Trump-Russia probe instigators
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has demanded answers on "when someone is going to jail" as a result of the investigations into Hillary Clinton and the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.
Jordan decried his House Democrat colleagues obsession with the impeachment of President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”
The Ohio Republican says numerous efforts by Democrats to bolster their case for impeachment have not gone as planned.
He argues that these ongoing efforts are diverting attention away from other, more important matters.
Jordan highlighted the recent release of the DOJ’s Inspector General report on the handling of investigations during former FBI Director James Comey’s tenure.
He also drew attention to the reoccurring question he fields regarding one of those investigations in particular; the Trump-Russia investigation.
“You know what people want to know?” Rep. Jordan said.
“They want to know when someone is going to jail.
"More often than not, when I’m walking through an airport or something, people walk up to me, ‘When is somebody going to jail for the wrongdoing that took place in the Trump-Russia investigation, or even the Clinton investigation?’
"I get that question all the time, and you can’t get to the bottom of that if you don’t get all the information out there.
"And what better opportunity than to bring in the inspector general to answer our questions?”
According to Fox News, last month's Justice Department inspector general report said that Comey violated FBI policy when he revealed information about discussions with President Trump to people outside the agency.
Last year, the inspector general criticized Comey's handling of the investigation into Clinton's use of a private server for emails while she was secretary of state.
Jordan claimed much of the Democratic agenda has failed, including their questioning of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and former special counsel Robert Mueller.
He also said they should be more focused on shoring up the southern border and dealing with China's intellectual property theft.
Democrats on the committee are planning on voting on how the investigation is defined, through a resolution that would set the boundaries of the probe, Politico reported.
"The Michael Cohen hearing didn't work out the way they wanted," Jordan said earlier in the interview.
"The John Dean hearing didn't work out the way they wanted and of course, the Bob Mueller hearing and that investigation didn't work out the way they wanted.
"But that doesn't stop them.
"They're going to continue to push this ridiculous impeachment narrative," he added.
"When they're focused on this warrantless impeachment inquiry, you're not getting done the things we need to be doing, like fixing the border situation -- dealing with... the intellectual property theft of China.
"Things we're supposed to deal with on the Judiciary Committee"
