Trump sycophant and GOP congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) says the Republican parts out loud, sending letters to the Department of Justice and FBI detailing the fascist party’s plan to bog the agencies down with frivolous investigations if the GOP regains the house.
The ranking House Judiciary Committee member – who has passed zero legislation in his 15 years in Congress – has served U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI director Christopher Wray with notice on Republicans’ intents.
We are investigating allegations of politicization and bias at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As a part of this oversight, Committee Republicans have sent you letters requesting documents and information on several matters,1 including but not limited to whistleblower disclosures alleging the FBI’s improper use of law-enforcement resources for political purposes and the FBI’s “purging” of employees with disfavored viewpoints. To date, the FBI has not sufficiently responded to any of our specific requests for documents or information. Our various requests to you, accordingly, remain outstanding.
The former Ohio State University wrestling coach showed the GOP hand in his letters, following the Republican brand of obstruction over governance to a tee.
“This instruction includes all electronic messages sent using your official and personal accounts or devices, including records created using text messages, phone-based message applications, or encryption software,” Jordan wrote.

Seeking communications and documents regarding the August 8th FBI search of ex-President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago estate, the do-nothing representative says the Republican party is “committed” to probing the departments actions to former President Trump accountable for wantonly disregarding precedent and the law.
With less than a week until the midterm election, Jordan’s move appears to be little more than a distraction and deflection from the GOP’s failure to put forth any real policy.
Instead, disruption is on the 2022 ballot, further undermining the role of federal officials in holding all those accountable who seek to skirt the law – including Donald Trump.
