Donald Trump wants executions, and it seems Jim Jordan agrees. On February 13, 2022, the Ohio Rep. backed the former President's call for Clinton's aides to be executed over the server hacking scandal revealed by Special Counsel John Durham. It has led to widespread trolling of Jordan online, as many attacked the Trump ally's take.

The scandal erupted from Durham's investigation into the origins of the probe into Trump's ties with Russia. After months, Durham finally issued an update on his investigation, revealing that the Clinton campaign tried to hack Trump's servers at the Trump Tower and later the White House to find dirt on him. Durham reported that since 2016, "the Hillary Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Coie to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia."

The shocking reveal has reignited the long-running feud between Clinton and Trump. After the news broke, the former President released a lengthy statement attacking Clinton and her campaign, while gathering widespread support from some members of the GOP. Jordan has become just the latest to do so, proving that he's still loyal to Trump, even as others distance themselves from him.

Jordan says Trump 'right on target'

On February 12, Trump released a statement saying, "This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution," adding, "'In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death." It isn't the first time Trump has called for his enemies to be put to death and is unlikely to be the last.

Reacting to that statement, Jordan appeared on 'Fox and Friends' on February 13, 2022, and said, "We've never seen anything like this in history." He continued, "So President Trump's statement yesterday, I think is right on target. This is truly unprecedented, truly something that has never happened in the history of our great country." He called the spying "worse than we thought."

The comments come just a week after Jordan found himself in trouble after it was revealed he talked with Trump for at least 10 minutes on the morning of the January 6 insurrection. It led to calls for Jordan to testify in front of the House Select Committee, which seems highly unlikely. Nonetheless, he's faced massive trolling and condemnation, which only grew in the aftermath of his latest comments.

'How does Gym get away with it?'

"And just like that, Mr. @Jim_Jordan is admittedly no longer 'Pro-Life' or against the death penalty. Funny how quickly things change," one user joked in reaction. Another tweeted, "What does @Jim_Jordan think about the death penalty for congresspeople who supported or took part in the insurrection?" A third said, "GOP Rep. Jim Jordan says Trump is 'right on target' to suggest executions for Hillary Clinton's campaign aides after Durham found they paid a tech firm to hack into his WH. If you or I suggested executions Twitter would rightfully ban us so how does Gym get away with it?"

"If you’ve got something to say - go say it under oath to the Jan 6 committee," one user mocked. Another trolled, "Hey Bro. Do you actually do anything? Pass legislation to affect change? Or do you just go on TV to complain about things that you don’t really understand?" A third person tweeted, "#JimJordan is complete garbage & will spin anything out of nothing."
