(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Wednesday, Jim Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, slammed Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney, over her claims that he had been attempting to interfere with the case in Georgia against former president Donald Trump. In a letter sent to Willis, Jordan stated that she was completely “wrong” in her position.
The letter was obtained by The Washington Examiner and in it, Jordan had written that Willis was alleging that oversight over the case in Georgia was obstructing the criminal proceedings and advanced partisan misrepresentations. However, he advocated that she was wrong for this position.
In his letter, he added that his committee was only able to “conclude” that Willis was politically motivated in her actions regarding this case following her response to the request for records they had put forward. Willis has maintained that this is a state case and that Congress did not have the necessary authority to have oversight or investigate her case. However, Jordan has opposed this position arguing that since the former President is implicated in this case, the case has “federal interests.”
Jordan further writes that if local prosecutors are able to file charges against senior federal officers over actions they took while in federal office, then they should be able to have oversight. He further pointed out that the special grand jury report pointed out that Willis had intruded into federal interests.
Jurors in their report had recommended that charges be filed against a number of lawmakers including Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
