Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Congress has "an obligation" to continue the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, despite president-elect Donald Trump's remarks indicating he will take it easy on his election opponent.

"Congress has an obligation to do oversight," Jordan, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said on Fox News, per The Daily Caller on Wednesday.

"When you think about equal treatment under the law, it’s incumbent upon us to get to the facts and get to the truth here, so that the American people know that, in fact, there is a standard in place called equal treatment under the law."

Trump admitted Tuesday he had little interest in getting Clinton prosecuted for her use of a private email server while leading the State Department.

"It's just not something that I feel very strongly about," Trump told The New York Times.

"I don't want to hurt the Clintons — I really don't," he added. "She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways."

Jordan "can understand [Trump's] point of view," but thinks Congress is constitutionally obliged to continue the Clinton investigation.

"The records law looks like it was violated in this situation relative to her emails and keeping records while she was at the State Department," said Jordan, who was also on the House Select Committee on Benghazi. "And then, of course there's the whole Clinton Foundation information."
