On Tuesday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) revealed how one person of interest involved in a potential second Steele dossier given to the State Department also happens to be the same person who was deposed for the Benghazi committee hearings.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends,” Jordan said people involved with the Clintons keep turning up:

“The names we keep hearing are Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer — people who have been around the Clintons forever as being a part of this. But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is, they paid Steele to put together the dossier, then they told him what to put in it. Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that's gonna serve your purposes as an opposition research document. That's what it looks like the Clinton team did, and then when you see names like Sidney Blumenthal coming up, I mean ... we deposed this guy during the Benghazi committee hearings.”

Jordan continued:

“This guy has been around the Clintons forever. He was knee deep in the whole Libya, Benghazi story, particularly the story where they weren’t square with the American people about what was the actual catalyst of that attack, and they tried to blame it on a video. So I find that all interesting."

Jordan further expressed his outrage at how the government did not disclose information about the Steele dossier while trying to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant and said the memo released last week detailing the abuses was important for the American people.
