On Tuesday, another Republican congressman went on Fox News with claims they’ve uncovered the existence of a “secret society” within the Department of Justice.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security committee, told the network he has an “informant” who corroborated the “secret society” claims, made by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) on air the night before.
“We have an informant that’s talking about a group who are holding secret meetings off-site,” Johnson said. “There is so much smoke here, so much suspicion.”
“Is there anything more about that?” host Bret Baier asked him.
“Nope, we have to dig into that,” the senator replied.
Johnson’s flashy admission followed by a claim that he doesn’t have any more information to provide in public echoes that of Gowdy and Ratcliffe, the latter of which admitted that although infamous FBI agents Peter Stzrok and Lisa Page texted each other about a “secret society,” he’s not sure it “actually happened.”

WATCH: Saturday Night Live airs Christmas special — that’s just one giant dig at the Electoral College
NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.
A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.
The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.
Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.
"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
