“I Will Not Yield” – In Epic Rant, Jim Jordan Accuses Dems Of Sweeping ‘Spygate’ Coverup

675

As Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee – led by Chairman Jerry Nadler – voted to hold AG William Barr in contempt on Wednesday, one Republican wasn’t having it.

During a heated diatribe during the vote, Jordan refused to yield and instead accused Democrats of trying to punish Barr for vowing to expose skullduggery by the Democrats and the Deep State during the campaign – particularly as it pertains to the provenance of the Russia collusion probe.

When it came his turn to speak, Jordan laid out everything Barr had said about his efforts to investigate exactly how the Russia probe was initiated, and look into suspicions that senior FBI and DoJ officials colluded with the Democrats to create an “insurance policy” to stop Trump. Jordan accused the Democrats of trying to punish Barr for simply following the law, while covering up for the FBI’s malfeasance and politically motivated interference.

“He’s going to get to the bottom of everything, he’s going to find out how and why this investigation started in the first place. Never mind what he said three and a half weeks ago when he testified before the Senate Finance Committee. He said four very interest things: First he said there was a failure of leadership at the upper echelon of the FBI.”

Out of everything Barr has said during his appearances before Congress over the last month, Jordan focused on one: Barr’s claim that he has found evidence suggesting that “spying did occur,” and that said spying may have been politically motivated – a reference to what has become known as “spygate”.

“Second thing he said…spying did occur. Third, he said, there’s a basis for my concern about the spying that took place. And maybe the most interest thing – two terms he used that frankly I find frightening – he said in his judgment that it looks like there might have been unauthorized surveillance and political surveillance.”

During his speech, Jordan cited a 2017 interview with Senator Chuck Schumer on the Rachel Maddow show where he said “if you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday for getting back at you.”

As far as Jordan can tell, the intelligence community took two concrete steps to try and get back at Trump for all of his deep state rhetoric.

“I don’t know if the FBI went after Trump in six ways, but they sure went after him in two ways. One was the dossier…the FBI used one party’s oppo research to get a warrant from a secret court to spy on another campaign.”

“When they went to the court they didn’t tell the court important things like who paid for it, that Christopher Steele had said he was desperate to stop Trump, and they didn’t tell them that Steele had been fired by the FBI because he was out talking to the press.”

The second was spying on the Trump campaign. To support this, Jordan referenced a New York Times story recounting an example of FBI spying on the Trump campaign.

“Second, just last Thursday, New York Times story, the FBI sent an investigator pretending to be somebody else to talk with George Papadopoulos who was working with the Trump campaign. You know what they call that? It’s called spying. Think about the term he used: Political surveillance.”

Asked to yield his time, Jordan replied “I will not yield.”

Unfortunately, Republicans weren’t able to stop the contempt vote from moving forward, but now that Trump has invoked executive privilege to protect the unredacted Mueller report and any related materials – which Democrats had demanded Barr release to them.

  1. Jeri GONADler, the nasty, angry, UGLY, obnoxious, anti American kosher kommunist, proves that most people of his ilk are NOT as intelligent as they claim to be. And certainly NONE of these socialists are loyal to the US. This A-Hole is one of MANY, including A Damn Schitt, Schmuck U Shyster, DieAnne FeinSTAIN, Dick BlewMyBalls, Needa LowlIfe, and BurnTheUSA Slanders, all trying to promote themselves as the one who brings down President Trump and destroy the US because of their insane desire for socialism. None of them are loyal to the US where they amassed huge wealth and power due to largely minority voters. All pure socialist scum.

  2. Once it’s all said and done, all the Dems and Repubs that Hate President Trump will be prosecuted for their involvement in smearing our President.
    If there’s any Obstruction of Justice, it’s them doing it.

  3. Ovomit, Killary, Burned out Bernie, Phosey, Chuck Schmuck , Maxi Pad, etc., everyone of these DEMORATS are just a bunch of lying,thieving,cunning,deceiving,degenerate,fraudulent,immoral,phony,
    socialist,commie,liberal,scuzzball, SCUMSUCKING PARTASITE COCKROACHES, We need to EXTERMINATE AND ELIMINATE EVERY LAST ONE OF THESE TERMITES AND SWEEP THEM OFF THE PLANET.

  4. It is all starting to “fall apart for the criminal Democrat Party Leadership and they know they know they will not be able tos top it or cover it up anymore”!!! The American people will tolerate just about anything but what they will no tolerate is having their federal government “over thrown with a ‘coup’, which is what the criminal Democrat Party leadership tried to do and is still trying it today”!!!!We can stop them in the 2020 election by “dumping the whole criminal Democrat Party Mob in that election and sending them a message that they will never forget, that we , the American people, run our federal government not them, period!!!!!!!!! It is time for a “redo of the 2016 election, with the same results in the 2020 electionN8uN”!!!!!!!!

  5. We need to stop picking around with these scumbags. Its time to start arresting them for treason, which is exactly what they are doing, trying to bring down a sitting President. Arrest them, indict them, impanel a grand jury and after finding them guilty of treason, hang there stupid asses, which is what America does to scumbag traitors. They deserve no less. They think they are untouchable as representatives. Barr needs to step up and file charges against them.
