(National Sentinel)Â The Swamp:Â Rep. Jim Jordan was blunt in his assessment of testimony by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, saying he is confident that the FBI was politicized by the previous administration to work against then-GOP nominee Donald J. Trump.
After grilling Rosenstein over a series of reports that appear to show both FBI and Department of Justice malfeasance during last year’s election cycle, Jordan, the Ohio Republican joined Lou Dobbs onÂ Fox News to discuss the testimony and what his panel and others in the House have learned in the year since Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“Listen you canâ€™t make this stuff up. It gets worse each and every day,” Jordan told Dobbs.
“What deep down scares me, if this actually happened the FBI had a concerted effort with the people at the top to go after one partyâ€™s nominee to help the other partyâ€™s nominee,” he continued.
“If that actually happened in the United States of America and everything each and every day points to more and more likely that that is what took place, it is sad for our country if that took place.
“And I think it did based on everything I am seeing. All the evidence points to that,” he noted.
Jordan grilled Rosenstein for several minutes during Wednesday’s hearing, referencing a series of recent reports that indicate high-ranking FBI officials up to and including former Director James Comey and current deputy director Andrew McCabe, in addition to ranking officials in the Department of Justice, colluded with Democrats to undermine Trump’s campaign.
