Capitol Insurrection Crime

Former Federal Prosecutor: Jim Jordan ‘Committed A Felony’ With His Text Message To Mark Meadows

Now that we know Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) forwarded a text message to then-White House Chief of Staff urging Mike Pence to reject some of the Electoral College votes when Congress was in joint session in January 6, 2021, it would appear that Jordan could be facing serious legal consequences for the role he played in the Capitol insurrection.

When news of Jordan’s text message to Meadows was revealed on Tuesday, Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) called Jordan a “traitor to the Constitution.” And he stood by that comment during an appearance on MSNBC Friday, remarking:

“As a matter of fact, he’s more dangerous than the yahoos, because he actually has access to power, access to information, and actually knows the process of how to stall democracy.”

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner agreed with Gallego, saying that Jordan is indeed a traitor:

“What Jim Jordan did by forwarding that text was to obstruct an official proceeding, and that statute, which is a 20-year felony, says if you actually obstruct, or you attempt to obstruct, or you endeavor to impede an official congressional proceeding like the electoral vote count, you’ve committed the federal felony of obstructing an official proceeding. That is what Jim Jordan did.”

Jordan needs to be indicted, prosecuted and put in prison if he’s found guilty. That’s what needs to happen to all of the traitors who tried to overthrow the elected government of the United States on Jan. 6.
