Jordan Shares Blockbuster News After Durham Report

Inquiries into the former president Bill Clinton and the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton are welcome, according to Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

Jordan discussed the conclusion of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the beginnings of the Trump-Russia investigation during an appearance with Fox News. Jordan said people need to go to jail and that the apparent targeting of the former president Donald Trump gives many Americans cause to doubt next elections and governmental institutions.

“Do you want to see another investigation of Hillary and Bill Clinton? Because in the Durham report, John Durham wrote that while they were pursuing Trump, they made no effort to investigate the claim that Hillary Clinton was taking money from foreigners for her Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation,” Bartiromo asked Jordan.

“They not only didn’t investigate her like they did President Trump, but they also gave her campaign a defensive briefing!” Jordan replied. “They should have done the same for President Trump because they literally had no evidence.”

“We’re going to give that a good hard look,” he continued, saying that he would consult with his lawyers and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. “But nothing is off the table because it is critical the American people understand how their government, their agencies have been turned on them, the taxpayer, and we get all the facts out there.”

Durham discovered that the FBI began looking into Trump before the 2016 election using “uncorroborated intelligence” and that agents consistently failed to uphold “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the investigation.

The Daily Caller highlighted some significant revelations in the Hillary Clinton report:

The report noted that the FBI received intelligence that Hillary Clinton’s campaign approved “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services,” specifically one that involved “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee” to distract the public from her email scandals. It notes that President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey were personally briefed on Clinton’s scheme, known as the “Clinton Plan” in the report, by CIA Director John Brennan, who recorded mentioning the plan in his handwritten notes.

The “Clinton Plan” was obtained by the FBI while it was relying on the “Steele Dossier,” a discredited report of lurid allegations of Trump’s personal sexual activity, which the FBI knew was being funded and promoted by the Clinton campaign, according to the report. Durham quotes information from a meeting between the Dossier’s author, former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and FBI agents, as well as texts between FBI officials, to demonstrate that the agents knew the evidence was connected to Clinton.

According to Durham’s investigation, the FBI and US Department of Justice wasted little time in looking into Trump, and their behavior was a “notable departure” from how they rejected attempts to look into allegations about the Clinton campaign.

The FBI briefed Clinton campaign staffers on information about potential threats, but disregarded information it received from “a trusted foreign source” that suggested the Clinton campaign planned to demonize Trump by linking him to Vladimir Putin in order to draw attention away from her own worries about using a private email server.

Both the United States and the Intelligence Community “appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement” of the investigation, Durham’s report said.

“Our investigation determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting,” the report found.

“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report,” Durham said in the report.
