Jim Jordan Doubles Down On Review Of Fulton County DA’s Prosecution Of President Trump



Just the News: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan on Wednesday doubled down on his efforts to review Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s election case after she rebuffed initial efforts from House Republicans.

Jordan, in August, launched a probe into the case, which has result in criminal charges against former President Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants. To that end, he demanded Willis provide the Committee with all documents related to the case. She refused.

In a Wednesday letter, Jordan railed against the DA and insisted that her rejection of Committee oversight had confirmed suspicions that she was engaged in a political prosecution and self-promotion effort.

Jim Jordan letter to Fani Willis
“Your letter reinforces the Committee’s concern that your prosecutorial conduct is geared more toward advancing a political cause and your own notoriety than toward promoting the fair and just administration of the law,” he wrote. “Congress in general, and this Committee in particular, have a strong legislative interest in ensuring that popularly elected local prosecutors do not misuse their law-enforcement authority to target federal officials for political reasons. We can only conclude from your hostile response to the Committee’s oversight that you are actively and aggressively engaged in such a scheme.”

The Ohio Republican rejected her assertions that the case only involved state and local interests, asserting that the indictment of Trump and other former federal officials justified Committee involvement. He went on to outline the committee’s constitutional authority to conduct its review and repeated his requests for documents, setting a deadline of Oct. 11.

“Although we appreciate that you produced to the Committee a rough spreadsheet outlining several federal grants utilized by your office, this spreadsheet alone does not satisfy our oversight requests,” he concluded. “The Committee is also examining whether legislative reforms are necessary to insulate former and current Presidents from politically motivated prosecutions by state and local officials, and whether the Department of Justice coordinated with your office on your indictments.”
