Last week, Pelosi’s January 6 Select Committee announced that it wanted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to appear before the committee voluntarily.
Jordan has since turned down the invitation to cooperate, claiming he has “no relevant information” for the committee.
Now the committee is throwing a bit of a hissy fit, threatening legal action against Jordan.
None of us ever expected Jordan to cooperate, as he has been adamant from the outset that the committee is a complete farce.
In announcing his decision, he stated, “As you well know, I have no relevant information that would assist the Select Committee in advancing any legitimate legislative purpose.”
Jordan added, “I have no confidence that the Select Committee will fairly or accurately represent any information I could provide.”
The committee has responded, and they are not taking the snub well.
A spokesperson for the committee stated, “Mr. Jordan has previously said that he would cooperate with the committee’s investigation, but it now appears that the Trump team has persuaded him to try to hide the facts and circumstances of January 6th.
“The Select Committee will respond to this letter in more detail in the coming days and will consider appropriate next steps.”
The statement continued, “Mr. Jordan’s letter fails to address the principal bases for the Select Committee’s request for a meeting, including that he worked directly with President Trump and the Trump legal team to attempt to overturn the lawful results of the 2020 presidential election.
“Mr. Jordan has admitted that he spoke directly to President Trump on January 6th and is thus a material witness.”
Jordan is not alone in being an active member of Congress to tell the committee to go pound sand.
Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) has also declined to appear before the committee.
My best guess is that we are about to have a war, as some very interesting reports are starting to surface on what is truly guiding this committee and its investigation.
Do you think Jordan should have agreed to appear or are you glad he is refusing?
