After refusing to seat him on the House special committee on January 6, that committee, under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has asked Congressman Jim Jordan to meet with them and provide specific information.
The committee is looking for correspondence and communication between Jordan and then-President Trump prior to the riot on January 6 at the Capitol Building early this year. They are intent in trying to find evidence of pre-planning of that happening, despite the FBI's report showing that there was "scant evidence" to suggest that the riot was not a spontaneous event.
Speaking to Primetime on Wednesday night, Jordan was asked appearing before the committee. He was asked by Fox News' Brian Kilmeade if he would consider sitting down with the committee that had refused to seat him among their ranks in July.
"We're going to review the letter," Jordan said, "but I've got to be honest with you, I've got real concerns about any committee that will take a document and alter it and present it to the American people, completely mislead the American people like they did last week. And it turns out, it looks like it wasn't just one document they did this with, but it was other text messages as well. So I've got real concerns with that."
Those doctored messages were read aloud on Monday December 13 on the floor of the House. Rep. Adam Schiff presented a text message from a Congressman that he claimed showed that Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows told then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
But it was discovered that the message was heavily edited before Schiff showed it to Congress. Punctuation was added, and two paragraphs were left out entirely. "In his graphic, Schiff erased the final clause and the em dash preceding it and added a period to the first clause without disclosing that he or his staff had chopped up the text and created a fake graphic misrepresenting the actual contents of the text message," The Federalist reported.
Jordan isn't spending a whole lot of time worrying about January 6, despite some of his Democrat colleagues being hyper-focused on the events of a single afternoon last January. Instead, he is concerned with the crisis at the US-Mexico border, which people continue to pour across with barely an acknowledgement from the Biden administration.
He's concerned with America's lack of energy independence and the current administration's fight to get OPEC to increase production instead, and the record high crime levels across the US. As far as investigations go, Jordan is much more interested in digging into Dr. Anthony Fauci's gain-of-function research and the Department of Justice's partisan investigation into concerned parents at school board meetings.
Jordan was appointed to the Jan 6 committee by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, along with four other GOP House members, but Pelosi refused to seat both Jordan and REp. Jim Banks of Indiana. In retaliation, McCarthy pulled all his appointees from the committee. It has proceeded with two very unpopular members of the GOP, Wyoming's Liz Cheney and Illinois' Adam Kinzinger, who is retiring at the end of his term. Cheney was voted out of her leadership role in May and kicked out of the Wyoming
