    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, called out the FBI's purge of conservatives on
    "The Faulkner Focus" on Friday and accused the Justice Department of retaliating against whistleblowers who come forward with information.
    The FBI hit back at Jordan's allegations, calling them "false and

    JIM JORDAN: Established policies and procedures, are you kidding me? In
    the past several weeks, they've raided the home of a former president,
    taking the phone of a sitting member of Congress, and we saw what they
    did to the pastor and his family and seven children: 20 agents, guns
    drawn, going to his house, when the local officials said there was no
    crime whatsoever. So established policies, you've got to be kidding me.
    So that's what's going on at the FBI. And now what's happening is the
    people who are brave enough to take whistleblower status and come talk
    to us, they're coming after them. And remember when it started. It
    started a few weeks ago when Merrick Garland sent out a memorandum to
    everyone in the Justice Department [on] here are the rules and
    guidelines for when you talk to Congress. It was a memo to chill their
    speech. And since that, we've learned of people's security clearances
    being revoked and now suspensions for FBI whistleblowers who've come to
    us. So if that's not retaliation, tell me what it is. Because it sure
    looks that way. I'm sure they got some something they're going to say
    that, oh, it's not. But that's what it appears to the American people
    to be. That's certainly what it appears to us and our lawyers to be.
