The Democrat Party’s lawfare against Donald Trump isn’t going as planned.
Now it’s damage control mode.
Jim Jordan dropped the hammer on Fani Willis with this legal announcement.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan expanded his probe into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s politically motivated indictment of Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants on racketeering charges stemming from contesting the 2020 election.
Jordan explained that Willis – an elected Democrat – brought a sham indictment against Trump and his lawyers, supporters and aides as part of the Democrat Party’s lawfare scheme to interfere in the 2024 presidential election.
And the dogged Jordan – long viewed as the most successful GOP investigator – continues to rack up evidence showing Willis and congressional Democrats colluded on a scheme to weaponize the justice system for political gain.
Jordan already demanded Willis turn over documents and emails about her office’s coordination with Special Counsel Jack Smith as part of the witch hunt against Trump.
Now Jordan is requesting records and documents related to Willis colluding with Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 committee to go after Trump.
“Although we were aware that your office had coordinated its politically motivated prosecutions with the Office of Special Counsel Jack Smith, we recently learned that your office also coordinated its investigative actions with the partisan Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol (‘January 6 Select Committee’). Accordingly, we write to request documents relating to the investigative coordination between your office and the partisan January 6 Select Committee,” Jordan’s letter read.
Jordan informed Willis that the Judiciary Committee has in its possession a letter dated December 17, 2021, where Willis’s office requested January 6 Select Committee Chairman Benny Thompson (D-MS) turn over any documents that would help Willis investigate Trump.
“Recently, the Committee became aware of cooperation between your office and the partisan January 6 Select Committee. We are in possession of a letter, dated December 17, 2021, and enclosed herein, from you to Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the partisan January 6 Select Committee, requesting access to congressional ‘records that may be relevant to our criminal investigation.’ Specifically, you asked Rep. Thompson for access to ‘record [sic] includ[ing] but . . . not limited to recordings and transcripts of witness interviews and depositions, electronic and print records of communications, and records of travel.’ You even offered that you and your staff were eager to travel to Washington, D.C, to ‘meet with investigators in person’ and to receive these records ‘any time’ between January 31, 2022, and February 25, 2022,” Jordan’s letter also stated.
These investigations were not legitimate fact-finding missions that followed wherever the evidence led.
Jordan believes that Willis started with a predetermined conclusion that Donald Trump was guilty and worked backwards from there.
And as part of this plot to indict Trump on sham charges, Democrats at the state and federal level conspired on a political hit job masquerading as a criminal investigation.
