Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) called out Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Liz Cheney, accusing the anti-Trump lawmakers of using their Jan. 6 House Select Committee to push a “complete assault on Americans’ liberty.”
“There’s been subpoenas issued to 11 individuals, 11 American citizens who asked the government permission on an application to hold the Trump rally,” Jordan said.
“The government granted it and now the January 6 committee petitions them to ask them questions about exercising their First Amendment right to assemble.
“And why would they subpoena me?
“I didn’t do anything wrong — I talked to the president.
“I talk to the president all the time.
“I just think that’s — you know where I’m at on this commission — this is all about going after President Trump.
“That seems obvious,” the congressman noted.
“And they told these companies that, by the way, don’t let the person we’re telling you to preserve information for, don’t let them know as the law requires, don’t let them know that we’ve asked you to do this.
“This is scary where they want to go and what they’re doing to Americans’ constitutional rights.
“And finally, I would ask the fundamental question, how would you expect witnesses to participate when you wouldn’t let Republicans participate in the committee?
“How can you do that?
“We know what this is about, it’s plain and simple, this is about they’ve got nothing else to talk about.
Jordan later spoke to CNN reporter Manu Raju and said:
“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.”
