“Well, we do have an obligation. Not just any old obligation, it’s a constitutional obligation,” Jordan said in an interview with “Fox and Friends.” 

“She obviously broke federal records law — at least I think she did.”

Jordan, a member of the House Oversight Committee, added that Clinton deserves “equal treatment under the law,” suggesting that anyone else would be subject to further investigation.
