Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) claims that 14 FBI agents have come forward to him to expose the politicization of the Bureau.
Video of Jordan on Trey Gowdy’s Fox News show:

Jordan said, “Fourteen FBI agents have come forward to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people. There’s lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem, but some of these good agents are coming to us telling us this is baloney what’s going on. God bless ’em for doing it. For talking to us about the school board issue about a whole host of issues. I mean it’s become a well-worn trail of agents saying this has got to stop.”
It will be interesting to see if Jordan’s FBI agents actually exist and if they file for whistleblower protection which they should do as federal employees. There is nothing stopping the FBI agent from coming forward to current House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
There are a whole other set of whistleblowers at Ohio State that Jordan never wants to talk about:
The latest Hail Mary attempt is claiming 14 FBI whistleblowers came to Jim Jordan and heâ€™s taking action.
The same man accused of knowing, but taking no action, on serial sexual assault of students at Ohio State University from 1987 to 1995.

Jordan appears to be making up the 14 FBI agents to give himself the pretext to investigate the FBI if he becomes House Judiciary Committee chair. Rep. Jordan’s comments should be viewed as a threat to the FBI that he intends to use his power as committee chair, should he obtain it, to punish the FBI for searching Trump’s club.
Jim Jordan is openly admitting that he intends to abuse his oversight power in an effort to save Donald Trump.
