GOP Lawmaker Puts Pressure On Obama Intel Team

December 5, 2022

Republican Rep, Jim Jordan of Ohio, soon to be the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is turning up the heat on Obama-era intel chiefs.

"Investigations led by Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, the incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, are heating up as the start of the new Congress approaches," reported JustTheNews.

"Jordan renewed his requests to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Director of the CIA John Brennan for documentation related to their October 2020 claim that the information on Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop was Russian disinformation," according to JustTheNews.

"James Clapper & John Brennan are on notice," Jordan tweeted with copies of the letters.

"Jordan is also seeking documentation and information from FBI officials pertaining to whistleblower complaints that the agency is engaging in a 'purge' of employees with conservative views," added JustTheNews.

Jordan wrote to Jennifer Moore, executive assistant director of the FBI's Human Resources Branch, about the whistleblower complaints, saying:

Recently, we received information suggesting you have retaliated against at least one whistleblower who has made protected disclosures to Congress.

As we informed Director Christopher Wray, we take whistleblower retaliation seriously and we therefore require that you appear for a transcribed interview as soon as possible.

Jordan noted that he is currently asking for the voluntary disclosure of the information that was requested, but he is open to a "compulsory process if necessary."
