Jim Jordan Appears To Embrace Trump's Call To Execute Hillary Clinton Campaign Aides

Trump is "right on target" with a statement that included a call for the death penalty, the Ohio lawmaker said.

Donald Trump is calling for the execution of some who worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign ― and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) seems to be on board.

“We’ve never seen anything like this in history,” Jordan said on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday. “So, President Trump’s statement yesterday, I think is right on target.”

Trump and Jordan were referencing a Feb. 11 filing by Justice Department special counsel John Durham reported by Fox News that claims the Clinton campaign paid a tech company to “infiltrate” Trump Tower servers looking for links between Trump and Russia.

“In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death,” Trump said in a statement.

Jordan, a staunch Trump supporter, appears to agree.

As Mediaite notes, the Fox News hosts didn’t specifically mention Trump’s call for execution during the interview. Jordan, however, shared a link to the Fox News story, which included the full statement from Trump.

Jordan has refused to cooperate with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol carried out by Trump supporters.

Jordan spoke with the then-president that morning, before the assault, and again during the riot, after lawmakers fled the floor. His statements about the calls have been inconsistent.
