Jim Jordan continues to make bad decisions.
The former college wrestling coach/homophobic congressman just sent a rambling, four-page memo to the House committee investigating January 6 to say he won’t cooperate with the probe into the Capitol insurrection.
In a letter addressed to committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson, Jordan said the committee’s request that he provide information about his communication with ex-president Donald Trump in the days leading up to the deadly attack is “an unprecedented and inappropriate demand to examine the basis for a colleague’s decision on a particular matter pending before the House of Representatives.”

He also called the request “an outrageous abuse of [the committee’s] authority” and said it falls “far outside the bounds of any legitimate inquiry, violates core Constitutional principles, and would serve to further erode legislative norms.”
Then he accused the committee of being “partisan” and said he has “no relevant information” that would help the investigation anyway, nor does he have any “confidence that the Select Committee will fairly or accurately represent” whatever information he does provide.

Last month, the committee released texts sent from congressional Republicans to ex-president Trump‘s then-chief of staff Mark Meadows in the days leading up to the insurrection. Among them was a text from Jordan offering a suggestion for how they might overturn the 2020 election results.
Jordan admitted to reporters that he sent the text, but he claimed it was just a forward and that he didn’t write it himself. Since that makes it so much better??? Naturally, when the committee heard this, it wanted to know more.

In a letter dated December 22, Thompson wrote, “We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on January 6th. We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail.”
Now, Jordan’s not speaking. At least, it seems, not without a subpoena.
Jordan might be keeping his lips sealed (for now), but people on Twitter sure have a lot to say about it…
Gym is refusing to testify 🙄
Not the actions of an innocent man.

Jim Jordan “If they call me, I got nothing to hide.”
They called and now Jim Jordan refuses to cooperate with January 6th Committee.

Jim Jordan has said he’s not going to cooperate with the January 6th committee. How does he find the time to juggle dodging so many investigations?

Jim Jordan and all of the other GOP congressmen who are being subpoenaed seem to be leaning on the “they can’t arrest all of us” strategy. I think they’re going to find out differently soon enough.

good! keep it up. then hopefully he’ll get hauled off to jail to experience some of shower shenanigans of his own.
Ditto he is sleazy help us all those GOP !@#$%^&*(&*^%^%$#@!@ the video just gets worse
If only. But I doubt it, anymore than Trump himself. Just as Rittenhouse got let off
Anything to buy time, I guess. Maybe things will blow over. A tiny man with a tiny character. Thank goodness is so inept at his job.
He didn’t see anything in the showers. He doesn’t see anything at the insurrection.
Sadly he will never face jail time for his sedition and will probably be rewarded once the Republicans take back the House next election and they disband the 1/6 committee and start their impeachment of Biden which they have already said they are going to do. As fascism takes over America Jordan will become a driving force and be rewarded for his sedition.
hey you idiot take your BS to Twitter then get banned, ok ? Impeachment of Biden? for what? being a well dressed man who has good posture? No one cares what poop you intended on spewing here today or anyday for that matter.
BTW Is that a mug shot of you or are you aware you took your photo high AF on Tina?
U sadly have to agree with alot of what you have said. BLake needs to calm down as you are not attacking Biden and neither am I as he is not guilty of anything but the GOP has already says it will try to impeach him. NO they said they would but it will only be a try but if we dont vote that is what will happen. Even if we vote the gop will try to steal the midterms even harder than they tried to steal the last presidential election.. BLAKENOW, dude are you alright. read the guy’s comment again and take a breath
BLAKENOW, SFMike isn’t advocating President Biden to be impeached. Some Republican congress members have stated that if the Republicans take control of the House they would impeach President Biden for payback for Trump being impeached twice. They don’t have a reason and they probably never will except the bullshit that Rudy “thinks” he has on Hunter.
Gym Jordan is such an unkempt turd. He should be subpoenaed immediately. There’s plenty of time to nail him to the wall. That loud-mouthed uncouth slob has been getting away with too much for too long. He won’t cooperate. Fine. Let him say that to his cell mate Bubba when they haul him in.
I happen to agree with Hillary Clinton, if you have nothing to hide what is the problem? How dare he presume that anything he has is not relevant? If he has nothing let the committee decide it is nothing.
has this piece of shit actually done anything for his constituents or for anyone other than himself or trump? you would have to be an asshole to vote to re-elect this shithead again.
gym jordan tried to cover up sexual abuse under his watch by a team doctor and folks really elected him and trust this worm to hold himself accountable? that’s rich.
