Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, says the House of Representatives has an "obligation" to continue the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. 

"Well, we do have an obligation. Not just any old obligation, it's a constitutional obligation," Jordan, a member of the House Oversight Committee, said on "Fox and Friends" Wednesday.

"She obviously broke federal records law — at least I think she did," he added.

Clinton deserves "equal treatment under the law," Jordan argued, implying that a less prominent person would be further investigated.

Jordan mentioned Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., saying that if he is appointed attorney general as President-elect Donald Trump intends, he'll be in the right position to impact the direction of the investigation.

"If he thinks it warrants further pursuit, further activity, further investigation, then he can move in that direction," the congressman said, also mentioning that he respects Trump's wish to end the investigation on his former opponent, but that the House has a responsibility no matter who occupies the Oval Office.

Trump said recently that he had no intention of pressing for a continued investigation into Clinton's email server.

"I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't," Trump said in an interview with The New York Times. "She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all. The campaign was vicious."
