Jan. 6 Panel Seeks Out Meeting With Rep. Jim Jordan

On Wednesday the House Select Committee investigating the events of the Jan 6th Capitol riot sent a letter to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan requesting he appear before the panel. In the letter, the panel claims Rep. Jordan was in regular communication with President Trump leading up to the riot.

The Hill reports:

“We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on Jan. 6. We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail. And we also wish to inquire about any communications you had on January 5th or 6th with those in the Willard War Room, the Trump legal team, White House personnel or others involved in organizing or planning the actions and strategies for January 6th,” Chair Bennie Thompson wrote in the letter, referring to the Willard Hotel where the Trump team organized its efforts.

“Public reporting suggests that you may also have information about meetings with White House officials and the then-President in November and December 2020, and early-January 2021, about strategies for overturning the results of the 2020 election. We would also like to ask you about any discussions involving the possibility of presidential pardons for individuals involved in any aspect of Jan. 6 or the planning for Jan. 6.”

Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and vice chair of the House Freedom Caucus, is the second member of Congress to receive such a letter from the committee.

On Monday, the committee asked for similar cooperation from incoming Freedom Caucus chair Rep. Scott Perry (R-Penn.) who has already rebuffed the committee and said he will decline to appear.

The panel pivoted after the swift rebuke from Rep. Perry and even offered to hold the interview in Rep. Jordan’s home district.

During an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade Rep. Jordan noted his uncomfort with the panel and its requests.

The Hill reports:

“It looks like the Jan. 6 committee, who didn’t want you on them, on the Jan. 6 committee, might want you in front of them to take questions. What will your reaction be? Will it be the same as Mark Meadows — take a walk — or would you sit down and speak to them?” Kilmeade asked Jordan.

“I mean we just got the letter today, Brian,” Jordan answered, later alleging that the committee had previously altered documents.

“We’re going to review the letter, but I gotta be honest with you. I got real concerns about any committee that will take a document and alter it and present it to the American people, completely mislead the American people like they did last week,” he added.

Rep. Jordan was referring to a text message the panel altered between him and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

I understand that I may be subpoenaed to testify about my actions on January 6th. I made a phone call to my great, great aunt in DC who is a registered Republican.

Too funny and quite appropriate to say about this kangaroo court old Nanc has led. Fact is she is the one who was in charge of security on the grounds where this abuse took place on that infamous day. Seems like the one in charge bears the brunt of responsibility and blame for everything that happened that day. Does the buck stop with old Queenie? Nope she wants to attack Trump and blame him and those who were protesting the election fraud.
>
Now in 2022 she should be called in to testify at her impeachment trial for actual criminal charges covering 1-6-21 and some other useless money wasting vendettas the mafiosa queenie obviously got from her mafiosa roots not even a generation from her persona as a mafiosa darling. He daddy was mafiosa.

This witch hunt is definitely a joke on the nation and will end like Russia, Russia, Russia has. The truth will come out hopefully in early 2022 when she loses her throne! And she should be run out of congress for her wasteful spiteful waste of time, money and focus while she was queenie of the house and ruled like the mafiosa bitch she is.

The minute Pelosi took over the House, all she has done is go after Trump and his allies. She is an evil, despicable person. Her whole party is toxic and diseased with power.

I understand that I may be subpoenaed to testify because of my actions on Jan 6 because I was actually at work minding my own damned business. I also publicly stated that I am registered to vote Republican and have done so multiple times. This is not a Democracy it is a Constitutional Republic. Our current regime is a criminal enterprise hell bent on turning us over to the Chinese on a silver platter. My vote didn’t stop them or the globalist cabal from doing irreversible damage to our country either. So now I have no hope for future generations nor am I able to do anything to change that. You can’t do damage to a non existent democracy. Stalin said it well “ I don’t care who votes or what they vote on. I only care who is counting the votes!” No confidence in this broken system.

In my opinion, Jordan’s effectiveness is on a level that matches Cruz, Trump and DeSantis. If Trump doesn’t want it, Jordan should be the new Speaker.

Jim Jordan is an absolute rock star and should tell the panel NO, PERIOD!!!
At some point and time we’re all going to have to make tough decisions. This administration is not letting up anytime soon. Talk is cheap if we don’t stand up against this tyranny. Let the chips fall where they may. I’m so, so, so exhausted from all this crap.

The blocking of a rigged election with numerous anomalies and vote dumps in the middle of the night is cause enough to allow a massive election Integrity investigation and a Audit of voting machines. Any County where a voting machine had it’s memory erased after the 2020 election should be sued for fraud, and votes considered corrupted, and disqualified for count. Anything that cannot be confirmed should be cancelled and disqualified until a proper audit can commence. The 2020 election never should have been certified in numerous swing states.

According to the Constitution and 3 U.S. Code § 15 it’s the responsibility of Congress in a joint session to count and certify the Electoral College votes. The VP’s responsibility is clearly defined and limited. Also, contrary to what some Democrats have claimed, it’s not a mere ceremonial event. CONGRESS, not the VP, CAN refuse to certify votes, sending the State certifications back for further action.
 
Unless States recall their votes stating that they found serious irregularities (which I believe did occur), at this point in time there’s no other recourse to change the results of the congressional decision. The only solution that I know of is to win both Houses in 2022 and the presidency in 2024. Then a new AG with a cleaned up DOJ can take serious action against what I consider was SEDITION.

THEY are the reason that even Republicans are skeptical about “Why bother to vote.”

Exactly. Even if there wasn’t overt election fraud, the way they simply dismissed all the claims was wrong. We had three years of multiple investigations of Trump over a false claim made by a lone, losing political candidate. Hillary not only lied about Trump colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election, she publicly announced and financed the “resistance.” Yet, hundreds of affidavits and witness testimony went unanswered and ignored in 2020, even by the courts, despite clear violations of the Constitution and state legislatures. Jan 6 wouldn’t have happened if they gave it half the attention they did in 2016.

Jordan need to come clean, if he has nothing to hide let it be known, He need to put it out there. Let’s get a clean government that everyone want. Stand up for the truth, let the chips fall where they might. The tRump administration is crookest I have ever witness. Yet people would rather believe a lie than the truth.

You are believing a lie. This is a committee that’s still investigating a non-insurrection 11 months later, with no evidence to support this waste of taxpayer money other than paperwork that it altered, and no goal other than to convince gullible liberals that they are busy doing something valuable by not holding the person and agency responsible for the only murder that occurred – against an unarmed woman.

This entire political process is why our Nation and its Politicians are the laughing joke around the world. Who authorized a Jan.06 Committee but not an Election Interference Committee? As a citizen of the USA I have always been embarrassed about the complete lack of Integrity of all those who portray themselves as Holier than Thou! The entire Campaign process is spent doing nothing but criticizing and attacking the character of the other parties nominees and from this we are to form an alliance on a nominee based on what? Hatred? Lies? The Government Corruption is a Global Pandemic. Sooner or later Governments are over turned and if Jan 06 showed anything its that the USA is long over due! Seriously do you honestly believe that hundreds of thousands of protestors were stopped by a handful of Security Guards? The very logic to suggest it was a riot is the corrupted thinking that believes Biden is doing a good job. The Democrats have seen their final days which is why they seek shelter under the Communist Flag!

I personally hope that someone somewhere calls for the body of George Floyd to be exhumed simply so we can verify how the whole thing was staged!

All this Jan 6 fiasco kangaroo court is there for, is to draw attention away from all the Criminal acts Durham has found concerning O’Billary and the DNC. A bunch of Dems need to be lined up and executed for their actual attempted insurrection.

And, pray tell, why would Jordan entertain such a request? He WAS a ‘selected’ member of the investigation team “until” Pelosi ‘got rid of him’ (and others who might just tell the truth) because they “just might” make public all the gristly details which her ‘earmarked’ study group hope to keep hidden. She’ll just go along with lying Adam Schiff and keep all the data secret which keeps the TRUE story buried. It’s hard to disguise all the government sponsored ‘plants’ who encouraged the break-in BUT have NEVER BEEN ARRESTED!!!

Well, just file a Restraining Order against the Committe like Flynn did. Harassment can only go so far.
