House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan hinted he is opening a new investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband and former President Bill Clinton.
During an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Bews, Jordan weighed in on John Durham’s final report into the Trump-Russia probe, declaring the targeting of former President Donald Trump is why Americans are questioning future elections, adding people need to go to jail.
“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 Jim 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 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’s report revealed the FBI used “uncorroborated intelligence” when it launched its investigation into Trump, and repeatedly failed to maintain “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the probe.
The Daily Caller also noted the key finding of the report on Hillary Clinton:
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.
Durham’s report also found that the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice wasted no time in investigating Trump. Still, there was a “notable departure” in how they resisted the efforts to investigate claims against Clinton.
The FBI briefed Clinton staffers on possible threats aimed at the Clinton campaign while ignoring information it’s received from “a trusted foreign source pointing to a Clinton campaign plan to vilify Trump by tying him to Vladimir Putin so as to divert attention from her own concerns relating to her use of a private email server.”
Durham’s report further found that “neither the U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement” of the probe.
“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.
