Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on Fox News Thursday to argue that the attorney general should appoint a special counsel to probe “serious wrongdoing done at the FISA court.”
“There was serious wrongdoing done at the FISA court, at least all indications are that that took place,” Jordan said. “When they didn’t present the whole truth to the court, when they didn’t tell them who paid for this dossier, when they led with the dossier, when they didn’t tell them that Christopher Steele, his relationship had been terminated in the FBI, and they subsequently go to the court to get those renewals and they don’t tell the court that information?”
“You are supposed to give the court the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I don’t think they gave them the whole truth. So, this needs investigating. The only remedy is a second special counsel.”
“Remember this too,” Jordan continued. “Comey is gone. McCabe has left the FBI. Rybicki has left the FBI, former chief of staff. Jim Baker, general counsel at the FBI, has been demoted and reassigned. Lisa Page, has been demoted and reassigned Peter Strzok, former deputy head of counterintelligence, has been demoted and reassigned.”
Earlier this week, President Trump lambasted AG Jeff Sessions for putting the inspector general, who Trump described as an “Obama guy,” to probe alleged FISA abuses.
