Rep. Jordan: 'Double Standard' With Andrew McCabe 'Drives Americans Crazy'
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Tuesday that he sees a double standard in the way Andrew McCabe is being treated by federal authorities compared to other prominent government leaders.
He noted how the former deputy director of the FBI has yet to be prosecuted for lying under oath, while former national security advisor Michael Flynn was indicted for providing a false statement to the FBI while he wasn't under oath.
"That's the kind of stuff that drives Americans crazy," Jordan said.
The report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz discusses McCabe authorizing an information leak about the FBI's probe of the Clinton Foundation to the Wall Street Journal, and then misleading investigators about the leak soon after.
Jordan on Friday said the report is troubling and reveals McCabe's "scheming."
Horowitz has been asked to testify in front of the House oversight committee on May 8 about his report, as well as on how the Justice Department handled the Clinton email investigation.
"I look forward to questioning Mr. Horowitz, [but] more importantly I look forward to getting the report and [finding] out what he's discovered over the last year," Jordan said.
Jordan also said he believes the FBI's former director, James Comey, "messed up" the Clinton email probe.
"[Comey] is at the urging of the attorney general, [and] calls the Clinton investigation a 'matter' and not an 'investigation' when everyone knew it was an investigation," he said.
"I just think this guy messed everything up from the get-go, and frankly I don't think he has a whole lot of credibility," he added on "Fox & Friends."
