Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump GOP

Michael Cohen Trolls Jim Jordan As January 6 Committee Focuses On Congressman’s Text Messages

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is under increased pressure and scrutiny as it becomes clear that he was one of the government officials who communicated with then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on the day of the Capitol insurrection back in January.

According to NBC News, Jordan has admitted that he did indeed send at least one text message to Meadows on January 6:

Rep. Jim Jordan’s office confirmed Wednesday that the Ohio Republican was one of the lawmakers whose text messages to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows were released this week by the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The acknowledgement comes two days after the Jan. 6 committee made public numerous documents, including text messages, provided to the panel by Meadows. The House committee revealed several text messages sent to Meadows by GOP lawmakers but did not name any of them.

Jordan’s office said Wednesday that the message cited by the panel on Monday was a forwarded text, and that it was truncated by the committee.

“Mr. Jordan forwarded the text to Mr. Meadows and Mr. Meadows certainly knew it was a forward,” Jordan’s spokesman told NBC News on Wednesday.

That report led Michael Cohen, who served for several years as a personal attorney to former President Donald Trump, to troll Jordan on Twitter:

During that hearing in February of 2019, Cohen did indeed warn Jordan that Trump was a “racist,” “a cheat,” and a “con man.”

Jordan is facing a very uncertain bid for reelection next year which is being made even more risky by redistricting in his home state of Ohio.
