Jim Jordan pushes FBI on ties between Peter Strzok, Trump surveillance

Jim Jordan pushes FBI on ties between Peter Strzok, Trump surveillance

Rep. Jim Jordan on Thursday pushed FBI Director Christopher Wray to explain possible links between Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was removed from the Russia probe after revealing his anti-Trump sentiments, and the FBI's push to surveil members of the Trump transition team.

Jordan, R-Ohio, said he wants a special counsel to investigate how a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant was obtained to surveil members of President Trump's campaign team.

And at a Thursday hearing at the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan asked FBI Director Christopher Wray to say whether the partisan Strzok used a disputed dossier on Trump, paid for by Democrats, to justify the FISA warrant.

“Did Peter Strzok help produce and present the application to the FISA court to secure a warrant to spy on Americans associated with the Trump campaign?” Jordan asked.

While at the FBI, he worked on the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email server.
