GOP Rep. Jim Jordan rejects request for interview with January 6th Committee

Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan rejected an interview request from the House committee investigating the January 6th attack, calling the request an “unprecedented and inappropriate demand.”

In a letter to the committee on Sunday, which he also posted to Twitter, Jordan wrote, “Your attempt to pry into the deliberative process informing a Member about legislative matters before the House is an outrageous abuse of the Select Committee’s authority.”

The letter lists several reasons Jordan believes the House committee is not conducting a fair investigation, and goes on to say, “Even if I had information to share with the House committee,the actions and statements of Democrats in the House of Representatives show that you are not conducting a fair-minded and objective inquiry.”

The December 22 request from the House committee seeks information regarding Jordan’s communications with former President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021. Jordan previously said he and Trump had spoken at least once on the day of the Capitol attack.
