Jim Jordan’s Office Confirms He Sent Texts to Mark Meadows on Jan 6th

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) spent seven minutes on the House floor Tuesday disputing the contempt charges against Mark Meadows, whom he described as “a good man, and he is my friend.”  Jordan was responding to the House Select Committee’s release of texts sent to Meadows on January 6th from Fox News anchors and others close to Trump as the riot raged throughout the Capitol.

But in his attempt to distract from the reason the body was assembled to vote, Jordan not only didn’t help his friend, but he also ended up incriminating himself.

Jordan’s office was forced to confirm on Wednesday that he is the sender of at least one text message to Trump’s former White House Chief of Staff that was partially revealed this week by the Select Committee and attributed only to “a lawmaker.”

Here’s the full text: “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all the electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all — in accordance with guidance from founding father Alexander Hamilton and judicial precedence. ‘No legislative act,’ wrote Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78, ‘contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.’ The court in Hubbard v. Lowe reinforced this truth: ‘That an unconstitutional statute is not a law at all is a proposition no longer open to discussion.’ 226 F. 135, 137 (SDNY 1915), appeal dismissed, 242 U.S. 654 (1916).”

Jordan’s text does not make clear that it was a forward “from one attorney to another”, as Jordan is claiming, and the Committee has indicated that it would have questioned Meadows about the context of the text message had he appeared for a deposition.

Jordan is just one of eleven Republican members of the House whose phone and social media records have been subpoenaed by the Select Committee, so it’s anticipated that the public will see the release of more incriminating messages and posts on and around January 6th.
