On Wednesday’s episode of the Breitbart Daily News program with anchor Alex Marlow, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated that exposing political corruption at the Justice Department will be a key priority for House Republicans in the upcoming 118th United States Congress.
Jordan, who is expected to become leader of the House Judiciary Committee, has called the DOJ’s aggressive, capricious, and politically selective execution of federal legislation unconstitutional.
He referred to a 1,000-page report released Friday by GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee, which featured testimony from FBI whistleblowers documenting the DOJ’s “politicization.”
“We’re dedicated to going after it as vigorously as we can while staying within the bounds of the Constitution,” he said. “I will just tell you what our study indicated considering that one of the whistleblowers came to us — and it was backed by others — that now the FBI leadership — not rank-and-file officers — but the FBI top management, notably the Washington Field Office, is corrupted to the core.”
“That means that you have to have a massive overhaul,” he continued, “and the way you accomplish that in Congress is you reveal exactly how bad it was — this is our job — and let’s hope, by revealing it, that it will push them back and make them decelerate all the crazy things they are doing, and then you must get a new president that will bring in the proper attorney general who will be ready to correct things and clean things up.”
On May 16, 2022, President Joe Biden and A.G. Merrick Garland enter the East Room for a ceremony at the White House in Washington, DC.
“We’re going to focus on it as extensively as we can because I believe it’s one of those core concerns to what America is actually about.”
Jordan finished by calling partisanship in the Justice Department an imminent threat to American greatness.
“You do not have this beautiful country if you have a Justice Dept. that’s political, that’s targeting its political rivals, and that’s not treating individuals equally according to the law,” he continued, “and that, regrettably, is what we have in a big manner, as proven by the record number of FBI agents who’ve come to speak to us as whistleblowers.”
