Jordan: Impeachment Push Continues Intel's Fight on Trump

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire should answer questions about why the intelligence community continues to fight President Donald Trump, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Thursday before the official took his seat before the House Intelligence Committee.

"We saw it in 2016 with what the FBI did," Jordan told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "I think we're seeing it now with this whistleblower. So, I think the director of national intelligence is going to answer those kinds of questions."

Maguire, testifying before lawmakers about a whistleblower's complaint about the president's July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said the whistleblower did the "right thing" by filing the complaint. Democrats say the report, as well as a transcript of the call, shows Trump abused his presidential powers through asking Zelensky to look into Joe Biden and son Hunter's business interests in Ukraine. 

Jordan, appearing on the program with Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., claimed Democrats are ignoring facts in hopes of removing Trump from office before he can be re-elected in 2020. 

"These guys aren't going to stop," Jordan said. "It doesn't matter about facts. It doesn't matter about truth. They are out to get this president no matter what. And we saw it start in 2016 and it continues to today. And I think the American people see through it and aren't going to tolerate it."

Meadows, meanwhile, said the Trump-Zelenskiy call shows no quid pro quo was offered to link the U.S. military to a Biden investigation. He also pointed out Zelenskiy, when appearing at the United Nations on Wednesday with Trump, said he did not feel that he was pressured during the call by Trump. He added the matter is shaping up to be a political impeachment of the president.
