Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said Donald Trump was “right on target” by proposing to execute Hillary Clinton operatives after Trump vehemently accused Hillary Clinton’s campaign of treason.
Jordan’s remarks on Sunday came after Special Counsel John Durham said the Clinton team was trying to spy on Trump’s White House servers in an attempt to find links to Russia to smear him.
“We’ve never seen anything like it in history,” Jordan said during the Fox & Friends Sunday morning segment.
“So, President Trump’s statement yesterday, I think hit the mark. This is truly unprecedented, indeed something that has never happened before in the history of our great country.”
Jordan added that “espionage” was “worse than [we] thought.’
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said Donald Trump was “right on target” by proposing to execute Hillary Clinton operatives during a Fox & Friends Sunday morning segment.
On Saturday, Trump erupted in vehement criticism, saying the behavior of the Clinton team would have once deserved execution after Special Counsel John Durham filed a lawsuit explaining the alleged hack.
Trump said: “Special Counsel (John) Durham’s recent statements provide undeniable evidence that my campaign and presidency was being followed by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign in an attempt to establish a completely fabricated link to Russia.
“This is a scandal much larger in scope and scope than Watergate, and those who were involved in this spy operation and knew about it should be prosecuted.”
Trump continued: “In a stronger time period in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations must be paid to those in our country who have suffered from this.” The behavior described in the documents is similar to what Democrats have repeatedly accused the Trump team of since 2016, without providing any evidence to support their claims.

Donald Trump has issued an angry statement exposing Hillary’s team’s alleged spying on his servers.
Donald Trump Jr. also lashed out at Clinton after the news, warning her “Durham is coming.”
“Just kidding, it was Hillary Clinton and a big technology executive. Durham is coming.
They spoke after the Durham documents showed how Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid money to a tech firm to “penetrate” servers that were in Trump Tower and later the White House.
According to Special Counsel John Durham, the goal was to try to smear Trump by linking him to Russia, which was accused of interfering in the 2016 US presidential election.
Durham was appointed by then Attorney General William Barr as Special Counsel to the U.S. Department of Justice in October 2020, while Trump was president. He continues to investigate a case that is sure to anger the supporters of the 45th president.
Durham’s motion, which was filed Friday, looked like a potential conflict of interest against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who was charged with making false statements to a federal agent. Sussman pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Former Trump-Russia Investigation Chief Investigator for House Intelligence Committee led by Republican Devin Nunez Kash Patel said Friday’s documents “conclusively showed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was directly funded and ordered her lawyers at Perkins Coie to set up a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection.” between President Trump and Russia,” Fox News reports.
According to Durham, this arrangement was set into motion in July 2016, meaning that the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers orchestrated the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was a candidate and later President of the United States, while perpetuating false accusations. . Falsifying the Steele Dossier, Patel told Fox.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid money to a tech firm to “penetrate” servers that were located in Trump Tower and later the White House, according to Special Counsel John Durham.
Sussman’s indictment is part of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s investigation into allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russian officials.
In the indictment, Sussman details how, two months before the September 2016 presidential election, he explained to FBI General Counsel James Baker that he wasn’t working “for any client” when he submitted documents allegedly describing “a covert communication channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, Russia’s largest private bank with ties to the Kremlin.
Democratic attorney Michael Sussman has been accused of lying to FBI General Counsel James Baker about whether he advised Hillary Clinton.
In Durham’s statement on Friday, he described how Sussman “collected and turned over allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a CTO (CTO 1) named Rodney Joffe at an American Internet company. company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign.”
The name of the Internet firm has not yet been disclosed either in reports or in court documents.
But Joffe is the founder of UltraDNS, the first cloud-based company to offer “domain name services,” which associate a numeric website address with a more user-friendly, alphabetic domain name.
DNS has been referred to as the “phone book of the Internet”, and DNS servers such as Joffe’s UltraDNS and the more recent Cloudflare typically have access to and look up the Internet histories of millions of their users.
UltraDNS was bought by technology company Neustar for nearly $62 million in 2006. Joffe’s LinkedIn reveals that he has since served as an executive at Neustar until his retirement in September 2021.
According to the tech firm’s website, Neustar is an internet analytics and company based in Virginia that recently helped an unnamed U.S. state with its COVID-19 contact tracing program.
It also helped Scandinavian airline SAS cut marketing costs by analyzing the most targeted and effective customer acquisition approaches, reflecting the company’s vast data-gathering capabilities.
Sussman’s own “account records” show that he “billed the Clinton campaign on numerous occasions for his work on allegations against the Russian Bank-1.”
It also says that Sussman and the chief technical officer (Joffe) met to speak with another lawyer serving as general counsel for the Clinton campaign, whom Fox calls Mark Elias of the law firm Perkins Coie.
The document also shows how Josse worked with Sussman at the behest of the Clinton campaign to “gather alleged data and official documents” — essentially to gather information that would link Trump to Russia.
Durham tells how Tech Executive-1 said he was trying to please some “VIPs”, which is said to be a reference to the Clinton campaign.
Rodney Joffe is the man Sussman called “Technical Executive 1” in Sussman’s indictment for allegedly lying to the FBI while hiding his connection to Hillary Clinton’s lost 2016 campaign against former President Donald Trump.

Durham explains that at Sussman’s trial, the government will prove how Joffe was able to see what websites were being viewed on computers in Trump Tower, Trump’s Central Park apartment west, and the White House.
Durham notes that Joffe’s position as “Technical Officer” meant that he was tasked with running dedicated servers for the White House and the President’s office.
“Tech Executive-1 and its partners took advantage of this arrangement by extracting Executive Office DNS traffic and other data in order to collect derogatory information about Donald Trump,” Durham said.
Ioffe is not charged with any wrongdoing and simply “hired Sussman as his attorney”.
Neither Neustar nor UltraDNS are mentioned in the documents and are not explicitly associated with “Internet Company-1”.
Sussman collected “suspicious data” that included all sorts of websites, including those of a Russian mobile phone company, and then claimed that Trump and his entourage “used rare Russian-made cordless phones near the White House and elsewhere.” places.
But Durham’s report essentially casts cold water on such speculation or that there was anything out of the ordinary with the search for the Russian cell phone company.
“The Office of the Special Counsel found no evidence to support these allegations,” Durham wrote, noting that “searches were far from uncommon in the United States.”
“For example, the more complete data that Tech Executive-1 and its partners collected, but did not provide to Agency 2, reflected that between approximately 2014 and 2017, a total of more than 3 million searches were made on Russian phone numbers. Prover 1 IP addresses that originated from IP addresses located in the US,” Durham said.
“Less than 1,000 of these requests were from IP addresses associated with Trump Tower.
Some searches were conducted as early as 2014, when the Obama administration was still in the White House.
