House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has had enough of the FBI and DOJ’s attempts to go after President Donald Trump, and he’s not afraid to show it. In an interview with Fox News, Jordan threatened to defund the agencies for their “egregious behavior” and interference in the election process. He pointed out that the FBI spied on Trump’s campaign in 2016, the Mueller investigation in 2018, the suppression of the Hunter Biden story in 2020, and now the indictment of Trump in 2024. Jordan believes that the DOJ and FBI have been turned against the American people they are supposed to serve, and that they should stay out of the election process.

Jordan’s comments have been met with both support and criticism from both sides of the aisle. However, one thing is certain: the actions of the DOJ and FBI have been a cause for concern for many conservatives. It is clear that they have been targeting President Trump since he took office, and it appears that they are now trying to influence the upcoming election by indicting him.

The conservative response to this news has been swift and decisive. Many have called for an investigation into the DOJ and FBI’s actions, and some have even gone so far as to suggest that their funding be cut if they continue to interfere in the election process. Jim Jordan has been a vocal advocate for this position, and he has been joined by many other conservative voices in his call for justice.
At the end of the day, it is clear that the DOJ and FBI have been engaged in a campaign of political persecution against President Trump. Their actions are a direct attack on our democracy and our right to free and fair elections. It is time for Congress to take action and hold these agencies accountable for their actions. Jim Jordan’s call to defund these agencies is a step in the right direction, and it is a reminder that we must always be vigilant in protecting our democracy.
