Before seeing text messages exchanged between FBI agent Peter Strzok and agency attorney Lisa Page, people "suspected the fix was in" concerning 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's investigation, but now, it's known for sure, Rep. Jim Jordan said Friday.

The messages include one in which Page wrote that she was "encouraged to know there were not going to be charged with a crime in connection with her use of a private email server" the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends," and that is problematic considering the role the two played in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"If the fix was in on the Clinton investigation and then these same people, top people at the FBI started and ran the Trump-Russia investigation, might there be some bad things going on there as well," Jordan said. "As you look at text messages, it sure looks like there is."

Meanwhile, there continues to be a lot of public demand for Republicans to release a memo alleging the FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and Jordan said he hopes the four-day document will be released next week.

"I talked to Chairman [Devin] Nunes at the beginning of this week, and I think that's the plan," he said, pointing out that once the committee releases the memo, then it'll be released to the White House, and after that, the White House has five days to determine if it should be released to the public.

"One thing I think is critically important though is when this memo goes public it, needs to be referenced, cited, footnoted so that the American people see where we got the information that's in the memo and they understand the sources are there, said Jordan.

Jordan on Friday also said he has concerns about Trump's call on immigration, which would allow $25 billion to build a border wall and to allow a pathway to citizenship for some 1.8 million dreamers.

"It's all about to me where the focus is," said Jordan, including meeting with the plans Americans voted in Republicans to accomplish, including ending chain migration and the Visa lottery program.

"If the focus is there and then we deal with DACA, then that something the American people will accept and something consistent with the mandate in the 2016 election," said Jordan. "If it's the other way around, which is what [Sen. Dick] Durbin wants and what Sen. [Lindsay] Graham wants, which is a focus on DACA first and then a little pretend security and a little pretend border wall and pretend chain migration, that's a different animal and I won't be for that and neither will lots of conservatives."
