Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told the Todd Starnes Show he is convinced the FBI was actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being elected president of the United States.
Last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., called for the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller.
“We are at risk of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected president of the United States,” Gaetz said. “And I would offer that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
I asked Jordan if he bought into the argument that something nefarious was afoot.
“The whole pretext is wrong. Think about this – you had – I’m convinced now – the FBI actively seeking with intent – actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being president of the United States,” Jordan told Starnes.
