Rep. Jordan reveals GOP will ‘keep the senate’ and ‘a good chance’ it will ‘take back the house’

Listen to “Rep. Jim Jordan: I believe Amy Coney Barrett will be confirmed” on Spreaker.

The election will end with the Republican party maintaining its majority in the Senate and ‘actually a good chance’ of taking back control of the House, Rep. Jim Jordan, R- Ohio, told “The Sara Carter Show” Monday.

He said voters want someone who delivers and follows through with their promises. In that respect, President Donald Trump has not only has a strong base of support but independent voters who will back him come November.

One major issue concerning voters is whether Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden will pack the Supreme Court with additional justices, a policy he refuses to answer to. When asked by host Sara A. Carter about the mounting concern, Jordan expressed optimism that Republicans would have control over the executive branch and the legislature, keeping Democrats from pushing that agenda through in the first place.

“I think President Trump is going to win. I think we’re going to keep the senate I think there’s actually a good chance we take back the house. So I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Jordan explained.

He continued, “But if it would, would they do it? Of course, they would. That’s why they won’t answer the question. And the danger of this is first it’s been the precedent for 150 years, we’ve had nine justices on the United States Supreme Court, but if you expand it, you turn it into a super legislature.”

Court-packing, Jordan added, would make the Supreme Court, which is supposed to be an apolitical body, a “political entity” and “not a separate and equal branch of government that the founders envisioned when they set up this experiment they call America which has those checks and balances that federal system that protects your rights, protects your liberties, protects you from the rulesof the mob and everything else.”

Last week, Biden said that American voters don’t deserve to know where he stands on court-packing, dismissing it as an issue only Republicans are concerned with. Republicans argue that he will move forward with the process if he wins the presidential election.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
