President Trump: The great Jim Jordan, how good is Jim? Where’s Jim? Where is Jim? I love — come here Jim. Don’t ever wrestle him even if you’re bigger than him, don’t wrestle him.

According to the Washington Examiner President Trump might be referencing an article that was posted @ Real Clear Investigations that states, “In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.”
