Jim Jordan Is Now 2nd Active Member of Congress Asked to Appear for An Interview By Jan 6th Committee

The January 6th House Select Committee has now moved on to a new phase of their investigation by actively seeking the voluntary participation of sitting members of Congress to appear for interviews. Rep. Scott Perry “declined” the Committee’s ask on Tuesday, and it’s expected their next subject will also refuse their request and face similar consequences to both Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), whose potential appointment to the panel was blocked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is the second active member to being asked to appear, but Jordan will most likely follow the paths of his predecessors and complain on Twitter and Fox News instead of speaking on the official record. Jordan’s office confirmed last week that he and Meadows exchanged at least one text and possibly more, discussing ways to block the January 6th certification of the Electoral College votes.

“We write to seek your voluntary co-operation in advancing our investigation,” the Committee’s letter to Jordan reads. “We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on January 6th. We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail,” the letter continues.

The letter also reveals the Committee’s interests reach far wider than the attack on the Capitol itself, including the activities of Trump allies and aides holed up in the Willard Hotel. “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,” the letter reads.

A portion of the message was revealed on the House floor by Committee member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). It read in part: “On January 6, 2021, Vice-President Mike Pence, as president of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.”

Jordan hadn’t responded to the letter by press time on Wednesday, but he did promote an appearance on Fox News with Brian Kilmeade, who also sent a text to Mark Meadows while the mob was attacking the Capitol.
