In an interview with Hill.TV's "Rising," Jordan was asked about a contributor's piece published by The Hill on Monday about how former FBI Director James Comey allegedly intervened, through Warner, to kill a WikiLeaks' immunity deal with whistleblower Julian Assange.

Here's what Jordan had to say: 

"Rising" host Buck Sexton: You have some names here that are involved in the decision – not to go forward with the offer from the DOJ – specially Mark Warner pops up and also Comey. Are you thinking – is the House – thinking about trying to get them to appear or to get more information on this decision?

Jordan: Good question but too early to tell. I'm intrigued by the story. Once again, James Comey jumps in the middle of this and it looks like they were moving and progressing and maybe get a chance to talk to Mr. Assange and figure out what he had and what he planned on releasing and how that may impact our intelligence capabilities. And then James Comey steps in and it looks like he and senator Warren stop it, so we'd sort like to know why, but we’re in the middle of big things this week. For the first time, we’re going to have Peter Strzok in front of us, so we’ll see. "
