Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, talks with reporters after a meeting of the House Republican Conference from the Capitol on June 26, 2018. 

Stivers: Let’s let the investigation happen as well as also also the facts come out as well as also also then we’ll deal with what the facts are, as opposed to rumors. I try not to deal in hypotheticals.

Harwood: We’ve also had, from the Trump Cabinet as well as also also some of your colleagues from the House, some pretty big scandal issues. We’ve had a couple Cabinet members leave, you saw your colleague Chris Collins charged with insider trading. How significant do you think the issue of the swamp, corruption, will be in This specific campaign, especially given the way President Trump talked about This specific in his 2016 campaign?

Stivers: I don’t think either party has some kind of monopoly on virtue or sin. Chaka Fattah was a Democrat, he’s in jail. Corinne Brown, a Democrat, she’s in jail. Ruben Kihuen, a Democrat member by Nevada, accused of sexually harassing folks as well as also also still a member of Congress.

The one thing I will say will be where we’ve had issues inside our Republican conference, as well as also also there have been serious allegations, we’ve dealt with them very quickly as well as also also the people have moved on as well as also also moved aside.

Harwood: of which hasn’t happened with Jordan.

Stivers: This specific’s about facts, as well as also also there have been facts in most of these others.

Harwood: Right, however you said “serious allegations.”

Stivers: of which’s fair, I should have said “facts,” because in a lot of these, there are facts.
