(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said that the American people didn’t learn anything new at last week’s primetime congressional hearing on Jan. 6, and they’re focused instead on things like $5 a gallon gas.
“I don’t think we learned anything new. We already knew they wanted to get rid of the Electoral College. They want to make it so Trump can’t run in 2024, and they had the former head of the ABC News as the producer, the choreographer of this thing, but I don’t think we learned anything new even with hundreds of witnesses, thousands of hours of testimony, no ability for Republicans to do any type of cross-examination, I still don’t think there was anything new there,” he told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“You know, it’s kind of like the home team playing at home and the ref’s on their side, and they still can’t win the game. That was sort of my takeaway, and I think that’s the American people’s takeaway, because they’re focused on the things you’ve already just mentioned,” Jordan said.
“They’re focused on $5 gas, 41-year high inflation, a border that’s no longer a border and crime that’s on the rise in every major urban area in this country,” the congressman said.
Jordan said that if the Republicans win the majority in the House in fall, they’ll ask to see all the depositions and documents that the Jan. 6 committee has.
“Well, we’ll investigate — I want to see all the depositions,” the congressman said.
“I want to see all the documents, and ranking member Rodney Davis has already sent a preservation letter to the committee, saying preserve all this information so we can look at it, and the American people can get the full story, not just this one-sided, choreographed presentation we got the other night, but when you think about what this committee’s done, never in the history of this country, in the history of the House of Representatives has a minority leader not been able to put on a select committee the individuals he or she has selected,” he said.
“We also know that this committee has altered evidence and lied about it, so much so that they had to issue a statement which says we regret the error which is government-speak for we got caught lying. So that’s what this committee’s about. I think the country sees it for what it is, a partisan political activity. That’s why the leader and I wrote the op-ed that we did in the ‘Wall Street Journal’ a couple weeks ago,” Jordan said.
