On Tuesday, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan came fired up and ready for Jeff Sessions to agree to the need for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton.
Rep. Jordan, however, was quickly disappointed.
“It sure looks like the FBI was paying the author of that document and it sure looks like a major political party was working with the federal government to then turn an opposition research document — the equivalent of some National Enquirer story — into an intelligence document take that to the FISA Court so they could then get a warrant to spy on President Trump’s campaign,” Jordan testified in the form of a question.
He continued on: “That’s what it looks like and I’m asking you, in addition to all the things we know about James Comey in 2016, doesn’t that warrant naming a second special counsel?”
In response, Sessions said a Hillary probe would only happen if there was a “factual basis” for it.
“We will use the proper standards and that’s the only thing I can tell you, Mr. Jordan,” Sessions said. “You can have your idea but sometimes we have to study what the facts are and to evaluate whether it meets the standards it requires.”
