Jim Jordan Comes Out Swinging

(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – A powerful Republican US lawmaker has come out swinging at and is going on offense as he sets out to investigate a potential conspiracy of leftist prosecutors who have indicted former President Donald Trump for alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

US Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, questions whether Fani Willis, the Democrat DA of Fulton County, Georgia, has coordinated her charges against Trump with US Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith.

On August 1, Smith announced the second DOJ indictment of Trump, accusing the former president of unlawfully trying to change the results of the 2020 election.

On August 14, a Georgia grand jury acting at Willis’ behest charged Trump over reportedly subverting the 2020 election results in the Peach State.

On Thursday, Jordan launched his investigation into whether Smith and Willis coordinated their anti-Trump charges on Thursday.

Breitbart News reports that he did so hours before the former president arrived in Atlanta to present himself for booking at a Fulton County jail.

Jordan sent Willis a letter requesting all of her office’s records related to the Trump indictment and asking whether the Democrat DA was in communication with Special Counsel Jack Smith or any other federal officials.

“Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated,” Jordan’s letter to Willis states.

“You did not bring charges until two-and-a-half years later, at a time when the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is in full swing. Moreover, you have requested that the trial in this matter begin on March 4, 2024, the day before Super Tuesday and eight days before the Georgia presidential primary. The timing of this prosecution reinforces concerns about your motivation,” the Republican lawmaker wrote.

The House Judiciary Committee chairman gave Willis until September 7 to respond.

The Fulton County DA previously denied any coordination with the DOJ.

“I don’t know what Jack Smith is doing, Jack Smith doesn’t know what I’m doing. In all honesty, if Jack Smith was standing next to me, I’m not sure I would know who he was. My guess is he probably can’t pronounce my name correctly,” Willis claimed earlier this month.
