Congressman Jim Jordan called out House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler during Corey Lewandowski’s hearing for not calling on the DOJ Inspector General to testify.
Jordan blasted his Democratic colleagues for holding the hearing as part of their impeachment investigation.
The lawmaker suggested Americans would be “better served” examining how “this whole false accusation started” instead of going back through two-and-a-half-years of investigations run by the FBI and Robert Mueller.
“You know a great place to start? A great place to start, Mr. Chairman? Ask you about this one. We could go today. A great place to start would be the inspector general’s report that was issued just three weeks ago, the scathing report about Jim Comey,” Jordan said, referring to Michael Horowitz’s report last month blasting Comey over handling of sensitive memos.
During a committee meeting earlier this month, Jordan confronted Nadler about brining the IG in to testify but was shut down when he insisted on getting answers.
“When I asked the chairman when we might have an opportunity to question Mr. Horowitz, he said, ‘I don’t know. I haven’t thought about that.’ Of course you haven’t thought about that,” Jordan said. “Too busy trying to impeach the president. Too busy slapping subpoenas on Corey Lewandowski.”
Republicans, including Jim Jordan, want to hear from Horowitz after he submitted his Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application report to AG Barr for a classification review on Friday.
