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.
