Rep. Jim Jordan spewed enough Uranium One and HRC conspiracy theories during the House Judiciary hearing that even Attorney General had no stomach for it?
Rep. Jordan’s shtick is to be the angriest man in Congress when the cameras are on. He knows his voters only watch Fox, and his job is to generate dramatic footage of a Republican in pursuit of “the truth about Hillary.”
Really, it’s getting old.
News broke that the Justice Department was indeed floating a possible special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal.
But that news didn’t satisfy Jordan, who used his time to try and force the DOJ to actually do the unthinkable. Use a book of oppo research funded by Steve Bannon, that holds no real conclusions or facts except for vicious innuendo to attack ones political rivals with.
He then read off his list of items pulled straight out of the Breitbart / Infowars fart jar of Hillary hate, that included James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton and of course the Steele dossier.
It’s all crap, but the Freedom Caucus is nothing without screaming Fox News host Jeanne Pirro’s approval, so off they go into conspiracy land.
Again he asked, “What’s it gonna take to get a special counsel?”
AG Sessions actually shut him down, saying, “It would take a factual basis that meets the standards of the appointment of a special counsel.”
Facts, Mr. Jordan, facts.
