The Justice Department has actually been weaponized versus conservatives.
The rogue agency is colluding with Huge Tech in a sinister plot.
And Jim Jordan blew the whistle on this bone-chilling plan by the Justice Department.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) announced that the Judiciary Committee is opening an investigation into the Department of Justice for an illegal security scheme against congressional staffers.
The Justice Department informed staffers for the Senate Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees that their e-mail and phone records were seized by federal prosecutors in 2017 as part of an investigation into leakages.
The two committees are responsible for supplying Congressional oversight of the Justice Department, which raises severe concerns about the separation of powers.
The Justice Department was spying on the parts of the legal branch that are accountable for supplying oversight for the rogue firm.
The investigation was launched after reports that the former chief investigative counsel Jason Foster for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was spied on by the Justice Department.
“The Justice Department’s secret targeting of congressional detectives is a new low in the agency’s sordid history of abusing its authority to avert accountability,” Grassley told Simply the News.
Jordan is demanding that Alphabet, Apple, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon turn over records about their cooperation with the Justice Department spying on congressional staffers.
The GOP guard dog sent a letter to CEOs of the business that explained that the Justice Department and FBI were investigating much of the Congressional staffers examining the origins of the Russian collusion scam versus former President Donald Trump while they were spying on them.
Jordan added that the surveillance broke the right of Congress to conduct oversight of the executive branch.
He informed Fox Service in an interview that he wanted to determine how far the spying chose his investigation.
“We now know that they spied on congressional staffers,” Jordan said. “We want to know, how far does it go? Were they spying on members? Were they spying on other staffers? Never forget, Liz: We understand they spied on President Trump’s project. We know all that from the FISA Court and what they finished with Carter Page and Papadopoulos– everything else. Now we have actually found out that they spied on one of Sen. Grassley’s employee, Jason Foster.”
The Justice Department was spying on staffers of the committees accountable for holding the rogue agency liable.
Chief Law Officer Merrick Garland has another scandal on his hands with another troubling example of the politicization of the Justice Department.
