Ohio Republican says Mueller ‘next to Jesus,’ insists no evidence of Russian collusion
Rep. Jim Jordan has yet to see the special counsel’s report on the Russia investigation, but the Ohio Republican insists it shows no evidence of “coordination, collusion, conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.”
Jordan tells ABC’s “This Week” that “everyone in town” was confident Robert Mueller would lead a thorough investigation.
Jordan says Mueller is seen as “right next to Jesus, he can almost walk on water, this is the guy and – and he will have the definitive statement on that fundamental question.”
He says Democrats are concerned there’ll be no “bombshell” in the report, so they’re pursing more investigations of the president.
