Rep. Jordan says Jan. 6 Committee is not objective and fair-minded

On Sunday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) seemed to imply that he will not willingly comply with the select committee probing the U.S. Capitol breach, calling the request "unusual and unacceptable."

Former President Donald Trump's national security adviser Mike Flynn, his former adviser Stephen Bannon, and his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows have all been subpoenaed by the nine-member committee trying to investigate the origins of the breach, which is almost entirely made up of Democrats.

Jordan cited several reasons why he does not feel obligated to cooperate with the panel's request in a letter to committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) dated Jan. 9, including the fact that he has "no relevant information" that would aid them in their investigation or in "advancing any legitimate legislative purpose."

Jordan began his letter by saying, "The American people are tired of Democrats' never-ending investigations and politicized witch hunts." "Unfortunately, your letter of December 22, 2021, continues the Democrat preoccupation. It amounts to an unprecedented and unacceptable demand that a colleague's choice on a specific topic before the House of Representatives be investigated."
