Jim Jordan Announces Investigation Into DOJ For Alleged Spying On Congressional Staffers


Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan announced that the House Judiciary Committee has begun looking into reports that the Justice Department spied on members of Congress and their staff.

Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley is also looking into allegations that the Department of Justice spied on his former chief investigative counsel, Jason Foster. On Tuesday, Jordan made the investigation public on Fox Business.

“We now know that they spied on congressional staffers,” Jordan said in an appearance on Fox Business’s The Evening Edit with Elizabeth MacDonald. “We want to know, how far does it go? Were they spying on members? Were they spying on other staffers? Keep this in mind, Liz: We know they spied on President Trump’s campaign. We know all that from the FISA Court and what they did with Carter Page and Papadopoulos—everything else. Now we’ve learned that they spied on one of Sen. Grassley’s staff members, Jason Foster.”

“We want to know, does it go further?” he stressed. “So we’ve sent letters not only to the Department of Justice but to all these carriers that the Department of Justice worked with to get the phone records and the email records from congressional staffers like Mr. Foster. How far does this go? Were they spying on members and other staff?”

Jordan wrote to Alphabet, Apple, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon’s CEOs, as well as Attorney General Merrick Garland, requesting information about the DOJ’s alleged attempts to obtain the private communications of members of Congress and their staff as part of the investigation.

“The Justice Department’s efforts to obtain the private communications of congressional staffers, including staffers conducting oversight of the Department, are wholly unacceptable and offend fundamental separation of powers principles as well as Congress’s constitutional authority to conduct oversight of the Department,” the letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook read.

The letter continues by elaborating on the claim that the DOJ issued subpoenas to congressional staffers looking into the DOJ’s Crossfire Hurricane operation on behalf of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in order to obtain emails and records.

“These revelations strongly suggest that the Justice Department weaponized its law-enforcement authority to spy on the entities seeking to hold it accountable,” the letter stated.

Attorney for the Department of Justice’s Tax Division Stuart Goldberg is scheduled to sit for his interview on Wednesday, and Fox News has learned that U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California Martin Estrada will sit for a transcribed interview.

After years of allegations of politicization and misconduct at Justice Department agencies during the investigation into the president’s son, the committee has requested testimony from DOJ officials.

Jordan has been working with the Justice Department for months to secure testimony from federal prosecutors involved in the Biden investigation.

Biden’s transcribed interview with the government’s special counsel, David Weiss, has been moved to Monday, November 7th, and will take place behind closed doors.

In a hearing earlier last month, the president’s son pleaded not guilty to all charges. According to Weiss, the probe into the president’s son is still active.

Jordan also presented alleged evidence linking President Biden to his son, who, according to his attorney George Mesires, served on the board of Ukrainian energy corporation Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.
