The rabid chihuahua-like Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) apparently believes that he can just skate past the House Select January 6 Committee as his former president has done. Jordan sent the Select Committee a letter telling its members that he had no intention of assisting them in any way. And that leaves him in a heap of trouble.
Former press secretary Chuck Ardo to previous Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell wrote a hair-raising op-ed calling Jordan a “traitor.” In Ohio’s next to the largest newspaper, The Plain Dealer out of Cleveland.com, he said:
‘U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, the see-no-evil, hear-no-evil former assistant wrestling coach, has once again chosen the dark side by failing to cooperate with the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.’
Jordan sent his letter after the January 6 Committee asked him for specific details, according to The Newsweek Magazine:
‘I have no relevant information that would assist the select committee in advancing any legitimate legislative purpose.’
‘It would be natural for the Select Committee to assume that Jordan’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation is due to his tacit approval of, or active involvement with, the insurrectionists’ actions.’
Prior to the attempted coup, Jordan texted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. In it he included a plan to keep Donald Trump in office. Representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) told MSNBC after the text came to light, calling him “a traitor:”
‘Look, Jim Jordan is a traitor. He’s a traitor to the Constitution of the United States. He has been a traitor to the Constitution of the United States for quite a while, and now we actually have it in text.’
Then the guest columnist wrote:
‘His contempt for the truth has been on display ever since he denied knowledge of the sex abuse his wrestlers endured during his tenure at Ohio State. Jordan can once again choose loyalty to the truth or continue being a sycophant loyal to Donald Trump—but he can’t be both.’
Ardo brought up Jordan’s Ohio State wrestling coach experience as he ignored the sexual abuse going on right before him:
‘The physician allegedly sexually abused a minimum of 177 male team members at Ohio State where Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach during part of that time. He simply looked away, and team members called him out on his betrayal’
Jordan’s lack of sympathy for his wresting team’s safety was abysmal:
‘He is following the path he blazed when he emphatically denied knowledge of the late Dr. Richard Strauss’ sexual abuse of hundreds of students at Ohio State, despite accusations by numerous athletes who claimed Jordan must have known about but turned a blind eye to the perversion.’
