Rep. Jim Jordan, the senior Republican serving on the House Judiciary Committee, submitted letters to the FBI and the Justice Department on Wednesday, thus pre-empting investigations into the two agencies that the committee intends to conduct if Republicans win control of the House.

The notices were delivered to FBI Director Christopher Wray and AG Merrick Garland, and each contained an appendix of pending requests from the previous year.

The appendices acted as de facto lists of issues that the Justice Department and FBI may anticipate a GOP-controlled Judiciary Committee to investigate next year, according to Jordan’s office, which added that the lists were not complete.

The letter to the DOJ requested information on:

  • “Efforts to identify and prosecute persons engaged in Mr. Andy Ngo’s and other journalists’ assaults”
  • Employees of Project Veritas being raided
  • The Department of Homeland Security’s new domestic terrorism section and its potential targeting of “concerned parents at local school board meetings”
  • Termination of the Trump administration’s China Initiative
  • Riots in Portland, Oregon, during the summer of 2020
  • “The harassment and intimidation campaign” that occurred outside the houses of Supreme Court judges
  • The search of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property
  • Enforcement of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act

The letter to the FBI sought information on various instances of suspected “politicization and prejudice” inside the FBI, an issue raised by many whistleblowers this year.

The letter includes information requests for:

  • The FBI’s investigations into pipe bombs planted near the Republican and Dem National Committees on the night of the January 6 Capitol riot
  • Nearly 3.4 million individual inquiries were done utilizing a database of information gathered under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, i.e., without the need for warrants
  • The FBI’s “Secure Work Environment” program ran for years within the Democrat law firm Perkins Coie, which became known for seeking looser election laws
  • Allegations that FBI officials intended to increase the number of “domestic violent extremism” cases
  • The search of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion
  • The FBI investigating  the January 6 Capitol riot

Republicans are widely predicted to take control of the House next Tuesday, and Jordan, an accountability hawk who has been on the Judiciary Committee since joining Congress in 2007, is expected to lead the committee if they do.

Jordan, as ranking member, has consistently pursued concerns about the Justice Department and FBI by sending the agencies demanding letters with questions and records requests, but as the minority party, he and his colleagues don’t have the authority to issue subpoenas or organize formal investigations.

Jordan has previously stated that both Garland and Wray’s replies to his demands have amounted to “essentially nothing. And if we receive anything back, it’s generally a one- or two-paragraph response.”

The letters, which were sent on Wednesday, served as a warning to the agency heads about Jordan’s investigation intentions if he gained majority-party control, emphasizing the importance of “transparency” and “accountability” at the individual agencies.

Jordan responded to Garland and Wray, requesting that they accept the letters “as a formal request to preserve any existing and future materials and records” pertaining to the aforementioned inquiry topics.
