Jim Jordan Slams Russia Hoax, ‘Peaceful Protests’
Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan slammed the Democratic operation within the FBI to execute a deep-state coup against President Donald Trump in his opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. Jordan also dismantled the media narrative regarding the nationwide protests characterized as “most peaceful.”
“Spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” Jordan said, going on to outline the FBI’s abuse of power while calling on Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York to allow the inspector general of the Justice Department, Michael Horowitz, to appear before the committee.
The salacious ‘unverified’ dossier, Jim Comey’s words not mine, they took it to the FISA court, didn’t tell the courts that the Clintons paid for it. Didn’t tell the court that the guy that wrote the document, Christopher Steele, had already communicated to the Justice Department that he was quote ‘desperate to stop Trump from getting elected.’ And guess what, there were 15 more lies that they told the court. Seventeen in total, they’re outlined by the inspector general each and every one of them in his 400-page report but guess what, Chairman Nadler refuses to allow Mr. Horowitz to come here and testify.
After a $30 million dollar investigation and years of an obsession perpetuating a conspiracy theory alleging President Donald Trump to be a Russian agent in a story they already knew to be untrue, Jordan charged Democrats with having nothing left to do than attack Attorney General Bill Barr for exposing the hoax that caused irreparable harm to U.S. institutions.
Jordan also went on to thank Barr for standing beside law enforcement as police come under attack nationwide with few supporters in the media going to extreme lengths to downplay the onslaught of violent assaults directed towards the sworn officers.
“Thank you for defending law enforcement, for pointing out what a crazy idea this ‘defund the police’ policy, whatever you want to call it is, and standing up for the rule of law,” Jordan said before playing a video before the committee illustrating some of the worst attacks from mob anarchists.
Jordan’s opening statements comes as Barr testifies in front of the House Judiciary Committee where the attorney general railed against the Russia probe and denounced demonstrators assaulting federal officers and property with mortar-style fireworks and lasers that can cause permanent blindness.
“Peaceful protesters do not throw explosives into federal courthouses,” Barr said in his opening statement.
