Ohio Republican Rep. Jm Jordan’s probe is intensifying, and now Georgia Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis case against former President Donald Trump has come front and center.
The House Judiciary Committee has been looking into the indictment, and it appears there was some serious collusion.
The Congressman has sent a second letter to Willis highlighting that she has refused to comply with the Committee’s demands and is now asking her to provide an answer to the latest revelations.
Jordan noted that “It is noteworthy that just four days before this indictment, you launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted your investigation into President Trump.”
He then referenced communication that took place between Willis’s office and Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), who was the chair of the 1/6 Committee.
“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 wrote.
The Congressman from Ohio also pointed out that the timing between the investigation and the filing of the charges is suspicious.
“The timing of this prosecution reinforces concerns about your motivation,” he wrote. “In February 2021, news outlets reported that you directed your office to open an investigation into President Trump…Yet you did not bring charges until two-and-a-half years later, at a time when the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is in full swing.”
When the dust finally settles – it will one day – Willis will be the next Marilyn Mosby.
