(National Sentinel) RINOs: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, has some simple but honest advice for the Republican establishment ahead of the 2018 elections, if they hope to retain control over Congress.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Jordan essentially lays out how Republicans came to dominate first the House and then the Senate — and eventually the White House, with Donald J. Trump as president.
The site noted:
The dynamic conservative connects the dots of recent political shockwaves to warn those in the public square. From the uprising of the Tea Party movement in 2010, to Dave Brat defeating House Majority Whip Eric Cantor in a primary, to the formation of the Freedom Caucus as a new center of gravity in the House, to John Boehner’s early dethroning, and then the 2016 upset by President Donald Trump, the American people have a message for elites in Washington.
“If that’s not sending a message to the establishment in this town, I don’t know what will,” Jordan said in the interview. “Maybe we ought to do what the American people sent us here to do.”
The news site videoed Jordan during his grilling of Attorney General Jeff Sessions at a House Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this month. That followed an op-ed in which he called on Sessions to “do his job or step down,” in which he also put forth several questions involving special prosecutor Robert Mueller, former FBI Director James Comey, and the highly controversial Uranium One deal, among others, that he believes need answers.
In understanding that the IRS was used as a political weapon against conservative groups during President Obama’s tenure, Jordan has expressed concerns that the national security apparatus was equally politicized.
He also wants to know if the Obama administration was complicit with the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign “in producing an opposition research document,” the infamous “Trump dossier,” which was turned into an intelligence document and presented to the FISA court to justify surveillance on Team Trump during last year’s campaign.
“With Thanksgiving and tax reform nearly behind Congress, the must-pass year end spending deal by a Republican Congress with a Republican president should make voters cheer, but instead Jordan fears that Republican leaders are afraid to stand firm for what they campaigned,” The DC reported.
