The Ohio Republican House member is following the Trump script in going after any Goverment offical challanging the ex-President’s right to ‘do his own thing’ regardless of the law…..
Congressmen tend to NOT go after DA’s trying criminal in public….

I was talking to Karen before we walked up here and I said, you know, Karen, I focus on the media. This feels like a huge deal. Am I wrong? Is it because I’ve never heard or seen anything like this before? Where you have a sitting member of Congress trying to sort of maneuver his way out of this, you know, investigation into the former president? And Karen, to your point, you said I’ve never seen anything like this?”
“Yeah, I’ve never seen anything like this before,” confirmed Agnifilo. “And D.A. Bragg, in this 50-page legal filing that was filed today, he sets out a campaign of interference and intimidation. Because, as you said, Representative Jim Jordan is trying to say, yes, it’s because of these $5,000 in federal funds and that you claim that you have oversight over that.”….
