Jordan, Comer, & Grassley Need To Be Investigated

The former New York State prosecutor who led the successful investigation and prosecution of Donald Trump’s “Trump University” is calling on the U.S. Dept. of Justice to act “immediately” to investigate communications from top congressional Republicans in light of Tuesday night’s bombshell revelation that the FBI’s former informant may have fed the Bureau false Kremlin-concocted propaganda attacking President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Former State Assistant Attorney General Tristan Snell, who won New York’s $25 million case against Trump, the largest ever at the time, said Tuesday night that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jim Comer, and U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, “were either duped by Smirnov and the Kremlin — or they were in on it.”
Alexander Smirnov, Politico reported Tuesday evening, is the “former FBI informant charged with making up a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden, his son Hunter and a Ukrainian energy company.” Smirnov “had contacts with officials affiliated with Russian intelligence, prosecutors said in a court paper Tuesday.”

“He’s charged with falsely reporting to the FBI in June 2020 that executives associated with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma paid Hunter and Joe Biden $5 million each in 2015 or 2016. The claim has been central to the Republican impeachment inquiry in Congress,” Politico added.

C'mon Merrick Garland, we need a special counsel to investigate the investigation. 5+ years of investigating Hunter/Joe Biden was bogus all along, you owe it to be non-partisan to find out if there are election interference crimes.

While you're at it, find out if Comer's shell company is laundering money. let's go.

and one who was not appointed by Trump. I have an idea who Garland can get, Peter Strzok or Lisa Page.

This is a job for a very highly skilled and experienced prosecutor, along the lines of Jack Smith. As much as I love Hiilary, and as smart as she is, she just doesn't have the right qualifications for this.

Congressional censure would be appropriate. It won't happen with a GOP majority and that ass Johnson as speaker.

Once Biden is out of office, he can sue for slander, although his chance of winning is slim. Hunter Biden would have a much better chance, and he can file suit at any time.

However, it's a civil and not a criminal matter.

Even raging assholes who prefer some sappy idea of what Russia is to their own country have freedom of speech.
