The Durham report revealed multiple levels of corruption. As Americans seek answers, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is pursuing justice.
Just the News noted that the details of the Durham report revealed how the Clinton campaign made up the Trump-Russia lie in an attempt to influence the 2016 election. The report also went into depth on how the FBI and CIA aided efforts to perpetuate this lie, and how the mainstream media was allowed to circulate and normalize it.
In the wake of Durham’s report, Jim Jordan tweeted on Tuesday, “NO COLLUSION.”
He told The Federalist, “We were right about everything,” and later tweeted a clip of his Fox News appearance discussing John Durham’s anticipated testimony regarding this report, which is potentially slated for next week.
Jordan defended the report amid criticisms from mainstream media outlets, which perpetuated the Russia collusion hoax. “The very people who told us things that weren’t true are now telling us, out there telling us on TV, ‘Oh you can’t trust the Durham report.’ Like, are you kidding me?”
No one from the Clinton campaign has admitted fault, apologized for manipulating the American people, or been fully punished for working to interfere in fair and free United States elections. This may be due to the fact that although the campaign committed these acts in an effort to sway the 2016 election in favor of Hilary Clinton, she still did not win.
Regardless of that fact, the FBI and the CIA chose party politics over their duty to serve the American people and defend the American electoral process.
Jim Jordan demanded in his Fox News interview, “The justice department has to prosecute, has to indict people.”
The House does not have the legal ability to charge criminals, and Jordan acknowledged this. To ensure that justice is served, whether the DOJ pursues charges, he is now seeking to pull funding.
Breitbart reported on his Fox News “Hannity” appearance, in which Jordan stated, “the only way we can hold them accountable is by going after the one thing that everybody cares about — the money. We have to look at the appropriations.
He added, “That’s the only leverage we ultimately have in Congress. We have to look at the power of the purse if we are ever going to get control of these agencies who did this not just once but multiple times.”
