Rep. Jim Jordan, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, reacts to the timeline of U.S. Attorney John Durham's investigation into the origins of the Russia probe.
House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, rejected committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler's recent accusation that when Attorney General Bill Barr recommended the termination of Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, it bordered on criminal.
Berman told the House Judiciary Committee last week that when he met with Barr in June, Barr recommended that he resign and take another administration job, warning that if he was fired it would hurt his future employment prospects. Nadler then told reporters what "we don’t know yet is if the attorney general’s conduct is criminal, but that kind of quid pro quo is awfully close to bribery."
"First of all, Mr. Nadler’s statement is ridiculous," Jordan told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," in response to the chairman's remark. He pointed to the lack of discussion regarding cases or President Trump as evidence that Berman's ouster was not part of any quid pro quo arrangement.
