(NationalSentinel) The ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee noted Wednesday following testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller that the FBI used a massive double standard during its probe of the Trump campaign, focusing on a false narrative of ‘Russian collusion’ instead of legitimate attempts to manipulate the 2016 election by the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
“If they can do this to the President of the United States. If they can go spy on two people, two Americans associated on his campaign based on this idea that there was some conspiracy which know now is completely false, if they can do this to the President, imagine what they can do to you and I?” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said during a Fox News interview.
“For Bob Mueller not even to look at that or answer any questions about that, not even want to look at that, that’s a big concern.”

During the interview, Jordan noted that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is finalizing a report that contains details of a lengthy investigation into how the FBI’s probe of the 2016 Trump campaign began.
Some analysts have speculated that the report will highlight abuses of the FISA court and warrant authority during the Obama administration when the FBI was headed by then-Director James Comey.
Since POTUS Trump fired him, Comey has become a vehement vocal critic of the Trump administration.
U.S. Attorney John Durham has been appointed by Attorney General William Barr to further probe improper behavior at the FBI and Department of Justice during the 2016 presidential election and beyond.
