Someone in Rep. Gohmert's office actually took the time to write a statement blaming Fusion GPS, Hillary Clinton and whoever else was in the way of the spaghetti Gohmert threw at the wall.
Louis Gohmert Blames Jim Jordan Scandal On Hillary Clinton
July 11, 2018

Remember when we used to have The Daily Louie honoring the proud ignorance and Olympic level hypocrisy of Texas Congressvarmint Louie Gohmert? Well damn, y’all, he’s going for two-fers now.

Louie! #1

The boy filed a false report at the Ethics Commission, conveniently leaving off $17,000 in last minute contributions right before the primary. Oh yeah, we have proof and so does the Ethics Commission.

Louie! #2

Louie has decided there’s a difference between right and wrong and by golly, he’s always right and by pure lucky happenstance so are all other Republicans.

He’s defending Jim Jordan. And, as usual, it’s all a big plot by Hillary Clinton. I’m not kidding you.

First, though, you have to read this.

“Jim Jordan is a fine and decent person who has a lifetime history of being honorable and honest, unlike his accusers whose extremely troubled backgrounds and ongoing legal and financial troubles place the veracity of their allegations into the realm of ridiculous,” he said.

Yeah, Jordan is being accused by herds of crazy people. And do you know who is getting these men to talk about Jordan? Of course, you do.

Gohmert hinted that there was a larger conspiracy since one of the law firms investigating the allegations, Perkins Coie, is affiliated with Democrats including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and former members of Congress.

“They were recently paid by Hillary Clinton and the DNC as a pass-through entity to hire Fusion GPS to concoct the salacious and unverified Russian dossier at the heart of the Clinton team’s attempted take-down of President Trump,” Gohmert said in his statement.

And then the next thing you know, he says he would not be shocked if cash payments had not already been made to the accusers “to purchase a drive-by character assassination of beloved conservative Republican Congressman Jim Jordan.”

Ed. Note:

If those men were lying, wouldn't they have accused Jordan of inappropriate behavior, rather than simply failing to deal with inappropriate behavior? Oh well, since it's all Hillary's fault anyway, why worry about those tiny details? - Karoli
