Rep. Jim Jordan: Sessions Should Either Appoint Special Counsel for Clinton Probe or Step Down
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is on a quest to ferret out the truth of evidence suggesting the Clinton campaign colluded with the Russians, resulting in the Trump campaign being spied on. In fact, he demanded that Attorney General Jeff Sessions appoint a special counsel to investigate the matter, or else step down.
Jordan appeared on Fox and Friends Thursday, where he pointed out that all the investigating done into Russian matters had been to find out whether or not the Trump campaign had benefited from their help.
“To date, we have zero evidence of that taking place,” he said.
Jordan laid out what evidence of collusion actually exists, however, and it all points to Clinton.
“But what do we know? We have learned in the last several weeks that the Clinton campaign paid the law firm who paid Fusion GPS, who paid Christopher Steele, the MI-6 agent, who paid Russians,” said Jordan. “The Clinton campaign paid Russians for this report for this dossier, and it’s been reported that this dossier was all dressed up by the government taken to the FISA court and became the basis to spy on Americans.”
“So I think that’s what happened, all the evidence points to that as being what took place,” adding that all FBI Director Christopher Wray, Sessions, et al., have to do to clear this all up is just release the applications to prove him wrong. So far, no one has lifted a finger to do so, leading Jordan to believe that collusion did take place.
Jordan noted that Sessions doesn’t seem to understand where his recusal ends and begins, and gave the attorney general a suggestion.
“If you’re not going to appoint a special counsel to get the answers to this question and a host of others,” Jordan said to Sessions via his interview, “if you’re not going to do it, then he should step down.”
