[WATCH] Whiny Jim Jordan Opens Judiciary Hearing With Crazy Rant About Giuliani and Trump
Rep Jim Jordan (Q-Ohio) has never sat in a committee meeting where he didn’t bring the discourse down to a grade school level. Known for his whiny, jacketless antics, Jordan uses his seat as a pulpit to preach Trump propaganda as the gospel truth and spew conspiracy theories into the historic record. With the truth being anathema to Jordan, his speaking time is solely focused on getting as many lies out there with lightning speed.
So it was on Thursday, as FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared once again for questioning regarding the January 6th attack on the Capitol. Jordan opened the proceedings with a rant that had nothing to do with the insurrection. Instead, Jordan used the opportunity to grandstand on behalf of Trump and berate Wray for raiding Rudy Giuliani’s New York apartment.
Considering Jordan has never publicly answered for his role in the Ohio State wrestling rape scandal or held accountable for millions of missing campaign funds, it seems like Wray should be questioning Jordan instead. It should also be noted that beleaguered Florida Man Matt Gaetz, who is currently under federal investigation for sex trafficking, sits on the same committee without consequence.
Perhaps that’s why Jordan decided to play the fool yet again at the outset of the hearing; because if you can’t fight a terrible truth like rape or sex trafficking, you can distract with something crazy that will get the Twitterverse talking.

“Big tech censoring conservatives, the cancel culture mob attacking anyone who disagrees with them, de-platforming the sitting president of the United States, Democrats writing letters to the network carriers telling them to take certain news organizations off their platform,” Jordan said. “Freedom is under attack and, director, a lot of Americans think you’re part of the problem.”
Not sure how appropriate it is for House Republican Jim Jordan to use the Judiciary hearing with the FBI to criticize the FBI for investigating his campaign donor Rudy Giuliani.

The projection language is truly off the charts. Watch Jordan’s full remarks below, if you can stand to listen for that long.
