‘I’m not a big fan of special counsels but I see no other remedy,’ he says
“I definitely think there are grounds for a second special counsel,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told the Fox & Friends hosts. “I’m not a big fan of special counsels but I see no other remedy.”
Jordan, who has been a US Congressman for more than a decade and an elected official for over 20 years, then went on to claim that another special counsel needed to come from Middle America and not from the swamp of Washington.
“Don’t have it be someone from Washington — like [Robert] Mueller and his team, all of Washington insiders,” Jordan declared. “Have it be a judge — a retired federal judge from somewhere in the middle of to country, outside the swamp. Have them put together a team, then go do the investigation. Whatever conclusion they reach, I think there’s a much better chance the American people will accept that conclusion.”
While he didn’t call for the end of the Mueller investigation, Jordan concluded by listing off a number of FBI officials that are no longer in their jobs and stating that no bit of coordination has been found between the Trump campaign and Russia.
