Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan is demanding an investigation of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to find out her role in what happened at the capitol on January 6th, 2021.
While speaking with CNN reported Manu Raju, Rep. Jordan was asked about the Democrat led January 6th Commission that is in place to investigate the events of the Jan. 6th attack on the capitol. Jordan didn’t bother sugarcoating it stating that the Jan. 6th Commission is simply a continuation of the witch hunt into Donald Trump.
A transcript of the exchange read:
RAJU: “Mr. Jordan, what do you hope to accomplish on the Republican side of this investigation?”
JORDAN: “You know what this is about. This is about going after President Trump, you know. I mean, the Democrats, they don’t want to talk about anything else so they got to talk about this. They don’t want to talk about the crime that’s going on in every major urban area. They don’t want to talk about the crisis at the border. They don’t want to talk about the price — the fact that the price of everything has gone up, the price of eggs has went up, the price of milk has went up, the price of lumber has went up, the price of airline tickets is up, the price of used cars — everything has gone up. They don’t want to talk about all that so they’ve got to talk about how we’re going to go after President Trump for a third time.”
Rep. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks were recommended by the minority leader to be appointed to the Jan. 6th Commission to which Pelosi responded, “With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee.”
Following her dismal of Jordan and Banks recommendations to the Jan. 6th Commission, New York State Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik blasted Pelosi saying she, “a radical authoritarian Speaker. The Pelosi partisan January 6 commission was never about investigating the facts, it was only ever about Pelosi’s radical politics and the Left’s endless obsession with crushing any discussion or debate. What is Nancy Pelosi so afraid of?”
