Jim Jordan is such a dumbfuck. His "whistleblowers" discredited



Three of Jordan’s witnesses have come in for private interviews with committee staff so far. None of them appear to have had their claims validated by government entities that grant federal whistleblower protection, sources familiar with their testimony said. One who alleged there was FBI wrongdoing had their claims rejected. Another is retired and it’s unclear whether he has first-hand knowledge of the violations he alleges. The third has not revealed his direct disclosures or FBI suspension notice to House Democrats, according to transcripts reviewed by CNN.

Separately, several other supposed whistleblowers who have not come in for interviews were suspended from the FBI for being at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, according to multiple sources familiar with the committee’s work. This is a point Jordan has not shied away from, using the accounts of “several whistleblowers” in a May 2022 letter to accuse the FBI of “retaliating against employees” for engaging in “protected First Amendment activity on January 6.”

For more than a year, Jordan has made whistleblower allegations a central part of his campaign to uncover what he claims is political bias inside the federal government, including drafting a 1,000-page report last year that leans heavily on claims by government employees alleging political interference by both the Justice Department and the FBI.

That report and the groundswell of support among House Republicans helped lead to the creation of an entire subcommittee Jordan now leads, the “Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government,” which is helming the whistleblower interviews.

At today's CPAC conference. He really has a soft spot for sexual predators.

If he did, those abused students would have received justice after being molested by the sick fuck coach he chose to ignore…

That being a bully and tossing around innuendo does not win the day in the halls of government. And his teachers are the fine Democratic caucus members who are all intelligent and witty. They will do as we have seen with Rep.Raskin.

The performative theater is all they have and it's surprisingly satisfactory to their dumb-as-a-stump partisans. Fox will pump the charade all they can, and it will circulate and morph, recede and boomerang, until we seriously start wondering if Jordan and his little committee actually accomplished something. Spoiler: No.
