The chairman of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus conceded it "was probably not the right thing" for FBI Director James Comey to tell Congress about new information found in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
In an interview Monday on Fox News radio's "Kilmeade and Friends," Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan slammed the handling of the investigation of Clinton's handling of classified material on her private server while she was Secretary of State.
And the latest bombshell dropped by Comey last week was more of the same, he said.
"I think this was probably not the right thing for Comey to do — the protocol here — to come out this close to an election, but this whole case has been mishandled, and now it is what it is," Jordan said to begin his interview with host Brian Kilmeade.
Emails that appeared to be relevant to the Clinton email investigation had been discovered during a separate investigation of former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, Comey alerted Congress on Friday
"Quite frankly, because he had done the press conference and all the things he had before, he probably did have to send a letter to Congress like he did last week," Jordan said, adding "all of this has been wrong from the get go in the way it's been handled."
