House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has been delving into alleged corruption involving the current first family — President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden — but he has indicated that his probes could soon expand to a member of a previous first family.
During a recent interview, Jordan discussed Special Counsel John Durham’s final report into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and suggested that investigations conducted by his committee may expand to include former President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton.
Jordan declared the alleged targeting of former President Donald Trump gives many Americans a big reason to question future elections and government agencies, adding that the Durham report made clear 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,” Fox host Maria Bartiromo asked.
“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 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.”
In his report, Durham said he found that the FBI used “uncorroborated intelligence” when it launched its investigation into Trump before the 2016 presidential election and that agents repeatedly failed to maintain “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the probe.
In addition, Durham confirmed a Hillary Clinton connection to the bogus ‘Russia’ investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign, per the Daily Caller:
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 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.
According to Durham’s report, it was revealed that the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice swiftly initiated investigations into Trump, demonstrating a significant departure from their previous refusal to seriously examine allegations against Clinton’s campaign.
The FBI briefed Clinton staffers on the information of possible threats aimed at her campaign but ignored intelligence it received from “a trusted foreign source pointing to a Clinton campaign plan to vilify Trump by tying him to Vladimir Putin to divert attention from her concerns relating to her use of a private email server,” Durham’s report said.
