Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, disclosed he is willing to investigate former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
During an interview with Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo, Jordan discussed Special Counsel John Durham’s report on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. Jordan stated that the alleged targeting of former President Donald Trump gives many Americans reason to doubt future elections and government agencies, and he called for the arrest of those responsible.
“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 determined that the FBI initiated its investigation into Trump prior to the 2016 presidential election using “uncorroborated intelligence” and that agents repeatedly failed to maintain “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the investigation.
The Daily Caller highlighted key findings from the Hillary Clinton report:
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 by “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee” to distract the public from her email scandals. The report indicates that CIA Director John Brennan personally briefed President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey on Clinton’s scheme, referred to as the “Clinton Plan” in the report. Brennan recorded mentioning the plan in his handwritten notes.
According to the report, the FBI obtained the “Clinton Plan” while relying on the “Steele Dossier,” a discredited dossier containing salacious allegations about Trump’s personal sexual activity, which the FBI knew was funded and promoted by the Clinton campaign. Durham cites a meeting between the Dossier’s author, former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and FBI agents, as well as messages between FBI officials, to demonstrate that the agents were aware of the evidence’s connection to Clinton.
The FBI and U.S. Department of Justice wasted little time investigating Trump, a “significant departure” from how they resisted efforts to investigate claims against Clinton’s campaign, according to Durham’s report.
The FBI briefed Clinton staffers on potential threats to the Clinton campaign, but ignored intelligence from “a trusted foreign source indicating a Clinton campaign plan to demonize Trump by tying him to Vladimir Putin in order to deflect attention from her own concerns regarding her use of a private email server.”

Durham’s report also found that “neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement” of the investigation. CONTINUE READING…
