Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan, R-OH, appeared on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday to discuss an upcoming hearing on Capitol Hill related to the case of Trump-ally Roger Stone, who is set to go to jail next week for his conviction of obstruction, witness intimidation and lying to Congress about the Russian collusion investigation.
The Committee will hear Wednesday from prosecutors in Stone’s case, including Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Zelinsky. Zelinsky is expected to argue that Stone received special treatment because of his close relationship with The President.
However, Jordan says the allegations are pure politics that linger from the Obama administration.
“Bill Barr is trying to clean up the politics that existed in the Obama administration,” Jordan told host Steve Doocy. “Never forget, Eric Holder said he was Obama’s wingman. Never forget that it was Obama Justice Department that went after investigative journalists, it was the Obama Justice Department with Fast and Furious, it was the Obama administration, in the last days of that administration, 38 people unmasked Michael Flynn’s name 49 times.”
He added, “And, now, Jerry Nadler has the gall to say the politics is in the Barr Justice Department and the Trump administration, you’ve got to be kidding me. Bill Barr is trying to clean up the mess that existed there before, and thank goodness he’s doing that.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
