As the GOP chorus calling for the removal of special counsel Robert Mueller continues to grow, one Republican lawmaker took his fight against the Department of Justice one step further, saying there was a widespread conspiracy throughout the federal government to “prevent” Donald Trump from taking the Oval Office.
Following recent revelations of widespread anti-Trump bias throughout the FBI and senior agents discussing an “insurance policy” should Trump win, GOP legislator Jim Jordan believes the federal government was intentionally working against Donald Trump’s bid for the White House during the 2016 election.
“I think they were putting together a plan to stop Donald Trump from being the next President of the United States,” said Jordan.
“From what we learned several weeks ago, that they paid for the dossier. I believe that fake dossier was used as the basis to get warrants, to now what we’ve learned about Peter Strzok […] Everything points to the fact that there was an orchestrated plan to try to prevent Donald Trump from being the next President of the United States,” he added.
Peter Strzok and other FBI officials made national headlines earlier this month after the public release of private text exchanges, where senior bureau agents were secretly sending anti-Trump messages to others involved in Robert Mueller’s investigation.
