Rep. Jordan: AG Barr Is Trying To Clean Up The Mess From Obama’s DOJ
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.”
