Calls from House committee chairmen to release special counsel Robert Mueller's full report, including classified information, are "scary," Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday.
"You have the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, saying go ahead and make public classified information, and then you have the chairman of the Judiciary Committee [Jerry Nadler] saying go ahead and make public grand jury material," the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "That's scary. I was talking to [Rep.] John Ratcliffe, and he said this is one of the scariest things we have seen."
Their demands are happening, said Jordan, because "the Mueller report was not the bombshell they had hoped it would be," but when material that is not supposed to be made public is released, "that's not consistent with the law" and it's "just plain wrong."
Attorney General William Barr has said he will err on the side of transparency by releasing as much as long as the information is consistent with the law, and that's what "we should expect," said Jordan.
"Understand that this report was not what they had hoped," said Jordan. "First, the [Michael] Cohen hearing they had was a flop. Then the Mueller report comes out and it's not the bombshell they hoped."
Further, Barr has said that Mueller found no new indictments or obstruction, and that is as "definitive as you can get," said Jordan.
"Now what they are saying is we want to find something, we have to find something because we're so committed to getting at this president and not focused on, frankly, doing what's best for the country," said Jordan.
