Rep. Jim Jordan is worried about Donald Trump being indicted, so he is smearing Special Counsel Jack Smith.
Jack Smith was looking for ways to prosecute the innocent Americans Lois Lerner targeted during the IRS scandal.
And people think him serving as special counsel won’t be political?

All of the old House Republican right-wing chestnuts are coming back. Jordan has brought the conversation around to the bogus and debunked IRS scandal.
For those who don’t recall, the IRS scandal was centered around a false Republican claim that conservative groups were targeted by the IRS during the Obama administration.
The unredacted Treasury Department report later revealed that the IRS had been targeting both progressive and conservative organizations. Republicans had been lying to puff a scandal that was not true.
Jim Jordan is attempting to smear the Special Counsel because he sees the writing on the wall. The appointment of a Special Counsel is a big step toward Donald Trump being indicted.
Jordan is trying to discredit any potential indictment of Trump by smearing the Special Counsel’s motives.
