Jim Jordan Announces Hes Doing It…TODAY!

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Jim Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, declared on Wednesday that the entire Congress would vote to find U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress over his refusal to provide President Joe Biden with requested documents.

According to Jordan, the Republican-controlled House has been asking for a taped version of an interview that former Special Counsel Robert Hur had with Biden while looking into the former vice president’s improper disclosure and retention of sensitive material.

Hur claimed that although his investigation showed that Biden had broken the laws pertaining to this kind of material, he decided not to press charges because he did not think jury would find the ailing and elderly president guilty.

The House had given Garland every chance to comply with congressional requests for the audio clip as the House conducts its investigation into Biden’s impeachment, but he refused to provide it over, asserting executive privilege, according to statement made by Ohio Republican Jordan to reporters.

“The attorney general’s been clear — he’s not gonna give that information to us, so that’s why we have the contempt resolution,” Jordan said. “We assume this is gonna wind up in court, but we think our case is strong.”

WATCH:

Jordan suggested “defunding” the numerous investigations into the former president Donald Trump earlier this month. New York Attorney General Letitia James, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis are among these prosecutors.

Jordan asked Bragg and prosecutor Matthew Colangelo to testify last week on the so-called “kangaroo court” that produced Trump’s historic criminal conviction. The former president, who is expected to be the Republican contender for president in 2024, was accused of 34 counts of first-degree business record fabrication.

\Additionally, Jordan suggests “reining in abusive federal law enforcement agencies, including zeroing out Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office political witch hunt,” according to a statement from his office.

Jordan claimed that the House Judiciary Committee had “conducted oversight of the troubling rise in politicized prosecutions and the use of abusive ‘lawfare’ tactics to target political opponents” in a letter to House Appropriations Chairman Tom Cole.

Jordan said “rogue prosecutors” have abused “the rules of professional conduct and their duty to do justice in service of politicized ends.”

“He recommended that the Appropriations Committee adopt language to eliminate federal funding for state prosecutors or state attorneys general involved in such activity and ‘to zero out federal funding for federal prosecutors engaged in such abuse,’” Axios reported.Legal experts predict that should Bragg’s case against Trump be challenged after the guilty conviction on all 34 charges, it will present “reversible problems.”

On July 11, four days prior to the Republican National Convention, sentencing is set to take place. The maximum prison term for each count is four years. Trump is looking at maximum term of 136 years in prison.

“I believe that the case will be reversed eventually either in the state or federal systems,” Jonathan Turley, constitutional law attorney and Fox News contributor, told the network hours after Trump’s conviction.

“However, this was the worst expectation for a trial in Manhattan,” he said. “I had hoped that the jurors might redeem the integrity of a system that has been used for political purposes.”

“The trial is a target-rich environment for appeal. However, that appeal will stretch beyond the election. In the meantime, Democrats and President Biden can add ‘convicted felon’ to the political mantra,” he said.

Former federal prosecutor John Malcolm told Fox News Digital that, based on the testimony of Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, he is convinced that the jury’s decision amply demonstrates their conviction.

“The jury obviously ended up believing Michael Cohen, which is something I have a hard time conceiving since Michael Cohen has lied every time he has been under oath in the past and admitted that he hates Donald Trump, blaming him for all his problems, stole from him, and will profit from this conviction,” Malcolm said.
