Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) urges congress to focus on other priorities now that the Mueller probe has ended.

Jordan, in an interview with Fox News on Friday, said lawmakers should be working to secure the southern border, starting with the wall and other immigration reform.

As a member of both the House Oversight and Judiciary Committee, the congressman also criticized democrats for continuing to push the Russia collusion narrative. Rather, he says congress should investigate what initially prompted the probe, instead of matters that have since been resolved.

Jordan’s remarks echo sentiment shared by other top republicans. Sharing this concern was Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who this week suggested his party should find someone like Special Counsel “to look into what happened with the FISA warrant, [and] what happened with the counterintelligence investigation.”

In addition to weighing their own congressional investigations, republicans are also considering issuing criminal referrals for top DOJ and FBI officials involved in the Russia probe as soon as next week.
