Republicans claim to be a vigilante party, but Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked House Republicans to vote against Justice Department funding.
Why would anyone support a bill that would provide $140 million to the Justice Department that raided President Trump’s home? pic.twitter.com/BaRdy2Feir

Jordan said: “This bill will provide $140 million to the DOJ so they can continue to do what they are already doing, working with big tech companies to review certain information in case it gets to our people. Why am I doing this? Say? Because we know it happened… Now, we’re going to give the agency another $140 million to collude with Big Tech to prevent our people from getting valuable information ahead of the most important election we have in our country. Election of the commander-in-chief.”
The official account of the House Republican Judiciary Committee wrote above Jordan’s video, asking why Republicans would give $140 million to the agency that “raided” Trump.
The answer to that question is that the FBI’s job is to investigate crimes and catch criminals, and Donald Trump illegally processed government documents.
Jordan accidentally exposed the hypocrisy of a party that claimed to be fully concerned with law and order while trying to wrest money from federal law enforcement.
Republicans are hypocrites, and Jordan’s attempt to backdoor Trump by attacking the FBI shows the utter lawlessness of the Republican Party under Donald Trump.
