Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told the Todd Starnes Show he is convinced the FBI was actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being elected president of the United States.
Last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called for the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller.
“We are at risk of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Gaetz said. “And I would offer that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
I asked Jordan if he bought into the argument that something nefarious was afoot.
“The whole pretext is wrong. Think about this – you had – I’m convinced now – the FBI actively seeking with intent – actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being President of the United States,” Jordan told Starnes.
He was referring to a treasure trove of text messages written by investigator Peter Strzok – referring to an “insurance” policy. Watch the entire interview above.
Jordan said he was very concerned that the “insurance policy” might have been dressing up the dossier and turning it into an intelligence document and taking it to the FISA court to obtain a warrant to spy on Americans.
“If that happened and it sure looks like it did – if that happened it is wrong as it can possibly be in this great country for the FBI to actively be trying to make sure one individual, one major party’s nominee does not become the next president is as wrong as it gets,” Jordan said.
As I said on last week’s program – it appears the Obama Administration not only weaponized the Internal Revenue Service, but it appears they also weaponized the FBI.
Jordan said it “looks like they went after a major party’s nominee for president and said we cannot allow that individual to be the next president of the united states and they actively tried to stop it.”
