Rep. Jim Jordan says he’s gotten assurance from the House Judiciary Committee chairman that subpoenas will be issued for some senior FBI and Justice Department officials amid allegations of partisan prejudice.

In an interview Saturday night with Jeanine Pirro on Fox News’ “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” the Ohio Republican’s assertion comes as the White House claims there’s bias within the FBI against President Donald Trump.

"Chairman [Rep. Bob] Goodlatte [R-Va.] has told us he is going to subpoena those individuals, bring them in, with the documents, depose them…” Jordan said.

Jordan referred to deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, senior counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, FBI attorney Lisa Page, former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who reportedly worked for Fusion GPS, which collected opposition research on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“We need the documents, we need to subpoena all of them,” Jordan said.

"There are two fundamental questions: Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, and was the dossier the basis of getting warrants to spy on people associated with President Trump’s campaign,” Jordan said.

Republicans have pointed to newly released text messages between Strzok and Page as illustrating their anti-Trump fervor.

Strzok, who was dismissed from Mueller's team earlier this year, had texted that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was "an idiot like Trump," while Page called Trump "a loathsome human."
