Jordan: When Do We Get to See the Thousands of Other Peter Strzok-Lisa Page Text Messages?
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has many unanswered questions about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, including potential bias within the FBI and DOJ, and he is frustrated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions' lack of cooperation.
Jordan and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) are calling on Sessions to do his job or resign, criticizing his Justice Department for not cooperating with Congress and for leaks related to its Russia investigation.
"Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the Russia investigation, but it would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world," the congressmen wrote in an Op-Ed in The Washington Examiner. "It is time for Sessions to start managing in a spirit of transparency to bring all of this improper behavior to light and stop further violations. If Sessions can't address this issue immediately, then we have one final question needing an answer: When is it time for a new attorney general? Sadly, it seems the answer is now."
"We want him to do his job," Jordan said on "Happening Now." "Stop the leaks, answer our questions, give us the documents and appoint a second special counsel to look at the top people at the FBI. ... If you're not going to deal with those things, then maybe it is time to step down."
He pointed out that the Justice Department has given House investigators access to all documents and witnesses sought in the Russia probe, which he attributed to pressure put on the department by Republican lawmakers.
Jordan said he still has pressing questions about the FBI's involvement with the Trump dossier, the relationship of demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr's wife with the firm behind the dossier and anti-Trump text messages exchanged by FBI agents on Mueller's team.
"Why did they release the text messages in the first place between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page?" Jordan said. "Why'd they only release 375? When do we get to see the other 96 percent, the rest of [those] 10,000 text messages?"
He said these unanswered questions are why there's a growing chorus of lawmakers calling for a second special counsel to investigate possible anti-Trump bias within Mueller's team.
