( – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has stated that a “bookkeeping error” is driving the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s role in the alleged hush-money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over her affair with Trump.

The questions about whether Trump would be indicted this week in connection to the probe has led to many Republicans rushing to his investigation and calling out the investigation for being politically motivated.

Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee chair, along with two other committee chairs sent a letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg calling for him to testify before them and to hand over documents that relate to the hush-money probe.

CNN’s Manu Raju asked Jordan during the GOP retreat in Orlando about the possibility of Trump being indicted and noted how the GOP House majority is widely expected to go after Bragg following the probe.

In response, Jordan noted that the probe was brought on only after Trump announced that he was running for the White House again. He noted that following the announcement they found “some bookkeeping error from seven years ago.” He added that he did not believe Trump had broken the law and that any potential charges would be nothing more than “a misdemeanor.”

These are comments that he repeated on Fox’s “The Faulkner Focus” on Monday, stating that they are going after Trump over “some alleged bookkeeping error.” He proceeded to say, “You’ve gotta be kidding me!”
