Jordan Slams House Dems for Being ‘Solely Focused’ on Trump’s Impeachment Over Other Issues: ‘Ridiculous’

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) claimed that the push for impeachment from House Democrats is taking away from Congress’s ability to fulfill the needs of the American people.

Congress is back in session after their summer recess and House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) has already announced that his committee will be formalizing their impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

Although former Special Counsel Robert Mueller declined to press charges or recommend impeachment in his final report analyzing the Trump campaign and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, Nadler plans to push forward with other investigations into the president.

During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Jordan slammed Nadler’s decision to spend more time investigating President Trump to push impeachment.

Watch Jordan’s comments:

“We haven’t seen the resolution, but they say they’re going to vote on something this week. Look, the Michael Cohen hearing didn’t work out the way they wanted. The John Dean hearing didn’t work out the way they wanted, and of course, the Bob Mueller hearing and that investigation didn’t work out the way they wanted. But that doesn’t stop them. They are gonna continue to push this ridiculous impeachment narrative, at the cost of — one of the first things you learn in college Economics class 101 is opportunity costs. So when they’re focused on warrantless impeachment inquiry, you’re not getting done the things we need to be doing, like fixing the border situation, dealing with the intellectual property theft of China. Things we’re supposed to deal with on the Judiciary Committee.”

Jordan noted that he would rather the committee investigate former FBI Director James Comey who was just the target of a blistering report from Inspector General’s Michael Horowitz outlining how he leaked information that triggered the investigation into Trump.

“When you’re solely focused on going after the president, you can’t do what is best for the country. And that’s been the problem with the Democrats. But this Horowitz thing is important. I mean, you think about what Jim Comey did: he’s the guy solely responsible for putting the country through three years of this saga we have now lived through. Jim Comey’s the guy who started the Trump-Russia investigation. […] He’s the guy who created this whole darn mess. And yet, we’re not going to bring him after the scathing report by Michael Horowitz? We’re not gonna bring in inspector general to answer questions? That’s ridiculous. So, they’re so focused on impeachment they’re missing, I think, the important things that we should be addressing.”

While the House Democrats may not be interested in looking into Comey’s actions, Senate Republicans plan to probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

Representative, Jordan. Thank you. I have been trying to tell my reps this since 2017, January. If I am lucky I will get an acknowledgement of my message. Never an answer. It is absolutely transparent, the the current House Power is in the hands of all of those who do nothing but lie to get the vote, and then never fulfill the lies, promises, or “heartfelt” statements that they made while campaigning. Why is it that people cannot see this? The main reason is the collaboration of Left, MSM etc., RINOS, and the fact that we were scared to even… Read more »

When Democrats ran for Congress in 2016, did they run on impeachment, or other things that as Jim Jordan said, they are not doing?

D-RATs are shirking their Congressional responsibilities. They have abandoned the very people that elected them into office. Pathetic performance! DA D-RATs

Not only are House Democrats not doing things that help the American people, they are doing things that are hurting the American people, ripping us apart. But they don’t care. All they care about is avoiding the perception that Trump gets a win. If something/anything gets accomplished for the American people then President Trump would get the credit and they can’t allow that.

Democrats in Congress are only interested in socialism to control this country’s citizens, medicare for all, which not only will be healthcare for none (except illegals), but will also overtax working citizens, and illegals. They will do nothing for this country. Why would I vote into the presidency someone who is doing nothing for this country because of their hate for a legally elected president? There is plenty to be done. Like impeach Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Waters and others for not living up to their oath of office.

This is what happens when a US president (Obama) fills the DOJ, the FBI, CIA with progressive leftists that want to ‘fundamentally change America’. Glad their agenda suffered a huge setback in 2016 – and looking forward to continue draining the swamp in 2020.

”Ridiculous’ is putting it mildly. Let’s say the Dumbos somehow took The White House, Senate and kept the House; the last time that scenario was in place, all we got was Obamacare.
