Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is among those who believe that people including former FBI Director James Comey could find themselves in prison.
The representative appeared on Fox news on Thursday, along with Greg Jarrett and John Solomon, and told Sean Hannity that a day of reckoning is coming for the deep state.
“If America has a equal under the law system a special counsel into the Clinton’s crimes that were rigged will be appointed by the new attorney general immediately. And, of course, while the FBI gave Hillary a free pass, Mueller’s special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign, that was tainted, we now know, from the get-go,” Hannity said.
“From day one. From the beginning. Remember, when Strzok texted that his work on the Russia collusion investigation, remember, it was insurance policy? He couldn’t really explain any of that away,” he said.
“The excuses were beyond weak and pathetic. Obviously, he had incentive to take down Trump at all costs. Remember, Hillary should win 100 million to zero? When Robert Mueller appointed him as a lead investigator as a special counsel probe, was he ever asked about his obvious political bias?. No, according to Strzok’s testimony, never. Mueller didn’t care, didn’t inquire about the known political bias,” Hannity said.
“An investigation into a political campaign. That’s probably why I have been warning everybody about Mueller. He hired, of course, Hillary Clinton’s former Clinton Foundation attorney Jeanne Rhee, or the fact that Andrew Weissmann actually attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party that never happened,” he said.
“But breaking tonight, in a sign that we are nearing the end of the witch-hunt, Andrew Weissmann is now stepping away from team Mueller. Maybe time to investigate him. I guess he is not happy that the witch-hunt is going to come up short of their goal,” he said.
Is the Russia investigation a witch hunt?
“John Solomon, with you and your breaking news. This is amazing. Papadopoulos and Page, exculpatory information was withheld from the FISA court on top of what we know?” Hannity said.
“Listen, today is the day more than any other that you can see the dual justice system. You can see in Peter Strzok how the FBI took evidence of criminality. The negligent handling of email turned it into an exoneration and took the innocence and turned it into a criminal investigation against Donald Trump,” Solomon said.
“What we learned is that these two men, the two focuses, George Papadopoulos and Lisa Page the opened up the Russia investigation captured talking to FBI informant making exculpatory statements, spontaneous admissions of innocence. They did not meet with Russia. They did not hack emails with the Russians and in fact they said they would consider that treasonous wouldn’t be involved in it,” he said.
“Multiple statements of innocence, no evidence that was told to the FISA court. It’s important to note these statements of innocence occurred in August and September of 2016. One month before the first FISA warrant was issued.,” he said.
“Donald Trump. We know Hillary paid for this. She used DNC money she was controlling to pay for this. The FBI paid for this, sadly. And we also know Russian oligarchs paid for this phony dossier that Steele doesn’t stand by. Now John’s story. Legally, let’s talk about the ramifications,” Hannity said.
“We knew it all along, right? We knew that Carter Page had not conclude colluded with anybody.ad we knew the dossier was phony. We knew that George Papadopoulos hadn’t done anything wrong. Now we know the FBI truly knew all of this through their confidential informant. The law requires them to provide the FISA court with any exculpatory evidence and failing to do so can be a crime,” he said.
“Not only that, but they didn’t verify as the law requires the information they were submitting so, you know, in my judgment, and I identify it in the book, six different felonies may have occurred there,” he said.
“Remember, they didn’t tell the court the dossier was unverified. They didn’t tell the court who paid for it, namely the Clinton campaign. Didn’t tell the court Christopher Steele, the guy who wrote it, was desperate that Trump not win. Didn’t tell the court that Christopher Steele fired by the FBI for leaking information,” Rep. Jordan said.
“Now because of John’s reporting, they didn’t tell the court other exculpatory information about George Papadopoulos. That’s a lot not to share with a secret court, especially when you are getting a warrant to go spy on the other party’s campaign. But that is exactly what they did and that’s why you are so right!” he said.
Hannity asked the panel is new Attorney General Bill Barr would appoint a new special counsel which would lead to a “day of reckoning” for many members of the deep state and they all agreed that it was coming.
