Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) charged on Sunday that a “cabal” within the FBI had tried to take down President Donald Trump.
During an interview on ABC, host George Stephanopoulos asked Jordan if the entire report from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation should be released to the public.
“I’ll tell you this morning, if he’s going to release all the information, then I want all of it released,” Jordan said, referring to documents that Republicans believe show FBI malfeasance.
“They used that dossier. Took it to a secret court,” he continued. “[Investigators] didn’t tell the court the Clinton campaign paid for the document. Didn’t tell the court a foreigner desperate to stop Trump from being elected wrote the document. If they’re going to release everything, release it all.”
“You agree all the underlying documents should be released, top to bottom, the Mueller report should be released?” Stephanopoulos pressed. “There is nothing in the law that precludes the attorney general from releasing all of that.”
“I’m saying the attorney general should follow the statute,” Jordan agreed, before demanding to see evidence of a conspiracy: “If they’re beginning to release everything, release it all.”
“We have asked for that information to be made public a long time ago because that goes to what these top people, this cabal at the top of the FBI, what they did when they launched this thing in the fall of 2016, before the election.”
Stephanopoulos noted that investigations into the president continue in other districts like the Southern District of New York.
“What I choose to focus on is the fundamental charge of the special counsel was to look at collusion,” Jordan replied, ignoring about a half dozen investigations into the president.

Trump campaign official squirms when CNN host shows him polls of the president losing to literally everyone
CNN's Poppy Harlow on Wednesday cornered Trump campaign official Marc Lotter by showing him polls that show President Donald Trump losing to every major Democratic presidential candidate.
During an interview about Trump's 2020 campaign kickoff rally on Tuesday, Harlow asked Lotter why the president's poll numbers were so poor even though the economy is still performing well by many measures.
"A Quinnipiac poll came out yesterday -- it showed a whole lot of Democratic presidential candidates beating the president in head-to-head matchups, from Elizabeth Warren to Beto O'Rourke, to Joe Biden to South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg," she said. "Are you concerned about that?"
Historian reveals alarming similarities between Trump’s ‘concentration camps’ and Nazi Germany
As Republican lawmakers furiously deny that President Donald Trump is holding migrant families in "concentration camps" along the border, historians have been charting the alarming parallels with Nazi Germany.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) angrily disputed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who compared Trump's detention centers to Nazi concentration camps, but historian Ned Richardson-Little pointed out just how similar current conditions are to Germany in the 1930s.
Here’s how this South Carolina Democrat plans to take on Lindsey Graham
There is no question that former South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison faces a monumental task in challenging Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in 2020. President Donald Trump is massively popular there, and convincing Trump voters to split their ticket against one of the president's most reliable Senate allies is not going to be easy.
On MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday, Harrison outlined two major aspects of his plan to beat Graham — the first of which is showing voters what an insincere opportunist Graham is in his support for the president, as they used to hate each other and publicly trade insults.
