Republican Congressman Jim Jordan revealed his intention to investigate the January 6th Committee.
Rep. Jordan (OH), who was initially slated to be a member of the January 6th Committee, appeared on FOX News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” over the weekend. He discussed deep flaws in the ongoing hearings as well as what he plans to do about it.
He declared he intends to lead a deep dive into the committee’s documents and compare notes between what they reported and what they actually found.
“I want to see all the depositions. I want to see all the documents. And ranking member Rodney Davis has already sent a preservation letter to the committee, saying, preserve all this information, so we can look at it, and the American people can get the full story, not just this one-sided, choreographed presentation we got — excuse me — we got the other night,” announced the popular Republican.
He then launched into a scathing attack on the committee’s legitimacy, noting that Republicans had been blocked from adding their preferred members to the committee, making it extremely partisan.
Jim Jordan said, “But when you think about what this committee has done, never in the history of this country, in the history of the House of Representatives, has a minority leader not been able to put on a select committee that individuals he or she has selected.”
He didn’t stop there, though. Congressman Jordan declared unequivocally that the committee had lied to the American people and altered evidence, noting that it was so bad that they had to issue a correction.
“We also know that this committee has altered evidence and lied to the American people about it, so much so that they had to issue a statement which says, we regret the error, which is government-speak for, we got caught lying,” Jordan continued.
“So that’s what this committee is about. I think the country sees it for what it is, a partisan political activity.”
The January 6th Committee has suggested in the past that they have investigated Congressman Jordan for potential ties to the January 6th riot. This weekend they also claimed to have proof of Republican congressmen asking for presidential pardons related to January 6th.
Do you think Rep Jordan is going to get swept up in the whole January 6th investigation or is he simply setting himself up to be in Republican leadership if they take back the House of Representatives in November?
