Republican Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio, told Breitbart News Daily podcast host Alex Marlow Wednesday that an investigation of the Department of Justice will be a top GOP priority. Jordan is presently the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee. However, once the GOP takes control of the House following the midterms, that will change, and Jordan is likely to become its Chair.
“We’re committed to getting after that as aggressively as we can, and doing it in a way that is consistent with the Constitution,” he said according to Breitbart.
“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.”
He continued, “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.”
“We’re going to focus on it as much as we possibly can, because I think it’s just one of those fundamental issues to what America is really about,” Jordan explained.
“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,” he said, “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 has been releasing disturbing findings from a number of whistleblowers who have come forward since the Democrats took power in 2021. Many have alleged disturbing connections to the Biden White House that characterize the FBI as essentially Biden’s political enforcers.
In July he released a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray accusing the FBI of politicization to a shocking degree according to The Western Journal.
“From recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violence extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification,” he wrote.
“Given the narrative pushed by the Biden Administration that domestic violence extremism is the ‘greatest’ threat facing our country, the revelation that the FBI may be artificially padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous.”
