Jordan: 'There Has to Be More' to the Story of Why FBI Agent Was Kicked off Mueller's Team
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) grilled FBI Director Christopher Wray at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday.
Jordan focused on Peter Strzok, the top FBI official who was moved off Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation after he was found to have sent anti-President Trump text messages.
On "Outnumbered Overtime" today, Jordan said he believes it may have been Strzok who brought the infamous Trump dossier to a FISA court to obtain clearance for surveillance on members of the Trump campaign.
"Let us know if that happened or not. I believe it did," Jordan said. "If that happened, that is as wrong as it gets."
He explained it's now a known fact that the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign financed the dossier through a series of intermediaries, in order to influence the 2016 election. Now, he said he's trying to figure out if the FBI helped them.
"We need to depose Peter Strzok," Jordan said, adding that the Judiciary Committee also needs to talk to Bruce Ohr, a senior Justice Department official who was demoted this week amid an ongoing investigation into his contacts with the opposition research firm responsible for dossier.
Jordan expressed doubts that Strzok was removed from Mueller's team simply because of the anti-Trump text messages.
"If you get kicked off the Mueller team for being anti-Trump, there wouldn't be anybody left on the Mueller team. There has to be more," he said.
