Jim Jordan Gets His A*s Handed To Him At Hearing For Defending ‘Degenerate Spoiled Brat’ Trump

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was thoroughly humiliated at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee when Democratic Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett (VI) accused him of holding a hearing on the “weaponization” of government by the Biden administration for one purpose: To protect failed former president Donald Trump from his dozens of alleged crimes.

“Why are we back this time?” Plasket asked. “We’re here because former President Trump is on trial in New York. That’s why we’re here.”

“On Monday and Tuesday of this week, his former attorney Michael Cohen delivered devastating testimony implicating former President Trump in a hush money payment scheme,” she continued. “We all know that the former president exacts loyalty from all of his followers and especially GOP officials and those that work for him. Blind loyalty.”

Plaskett also mocked Republicans who “hightailed it to New York City to show him that they are with him.”

“And Trump, in turn, demands that every Republican official serve him like the incorrigible, degenerate, spoiled brat that he is and use their positions to aid his criminal defense.”

The congresswoman accused Jordan of holding the hearing to placate right-wing media figures such as Fox’s Maria Bartiromo and ex-Trump administration adviser Steve Bannon, who now hosts a podcast.

“We’re here at the beck and call of Trump fanatics and talking heads on cable and internet talk shows in the MAGA world who, like Bartiromo and Bannon, have goaded this committee to act.”

Of course, the congresswoman is absolutely right. Jordan and his ilk are desperate to cover Trump’s tracks and divert attention away from the 88 criminal charges he’s facing for allegedly interfering in the 2020 election, inciting an insurrection, and stealing classified documents.

But those who try and excuse the depraved acts of a lifetime criminal like Trump are in many ways just as guilty as he is and deserve to be voted out of office and charged for their crimes, too.

WATCH Jim Jordan Lose The Ability To Speak When Confronted With Facts By ‘60 Minutes’

For perhaps the first time since he arrived in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) lost the ability to speak during an interview with Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes” which aired Sunday evening.

Discussing censorship on social media platforms, Jordan argued that sites such as Facebook and Twitter shouldn’t be allowed to take down inaccurate posts and instead let people decide what they want to believe.

That led Stahl to ask, “What about this idea that the 2020 election was stolen? You think that these companies should allow people to say that and that individuals can make up their own minds.”

“I’ve not said that,” Jordan insisted. “What I’ve said is there were concerns about the 2020 election; I think Americans agree with that.”

“No, they don’t,” said Stahl.

Jordan: “You don’t think they think there were concerns with the 2020 election?”

“Most people don’t question the result, that’s all I’m saying,” Stahl told Jordan.

“Fair enough,” said Jordan.

Seconds later, things got tense.

“They don’t question whether Biden won or not,” she said.

Not a peep from Jordan.

“Right?” she asked.

Again, complete silence from Jordan.

“Right?” she asked again.

Nothing from the congressman. Not one word. Just a look of confusion.

“Most people don’t question the outcome,” Stahl said.

“Right,” Jordan finally said.

Jordan, it should be noted, vociferously insisted that Trump had won in 2020 and should be declared the victor despite Biden winning both the popular and electoral vote.

Social media isn’t the problem when it comes to lies. The problem is when you have people in positions of power spouting bullshit from the rooftops in an effort to overturn a valid election.

WATCH Eric Swalwell DESTROY Jim Jordan With A Brutal Reference To ‘What Happens In A Locker Room’

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) laid a brutal verbal burn on House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) for suddenly being “interested in what happens in a locker room,” a clear reference to a sex scandal that took place on the Ohio State University men’s wrestling team while Jordan was an assistant coach for the program from 1987 to 1995.

During committee debate on a bill sponsored by House Republicans to address the issue of biological women supposedly being “victimized” by sharing locker rooms with transgender women, Swalwell took aim at Jordan.

“I guess it’s a good thing that some folks on the other side are now interested in what happens in a locker room, and we’re not going to look the other way, okay, I’ll accept that,” Swalwell remarked.

Swalwell added that transgender people victimizing women in locker rooms is not actually a “thing.”

“This is not a thing, and so I just invite my Democratic colleagues who have so passionately spoken on this to continue to passionately speak on this, but to just reject this as a thing.”

Turning to Jordan, Swawell declared, “And thank you for caring about what happens in locker rooms.”

HuffPost notes, “That was a not-so-subtle reminder of a time when Jordan was in a locker room as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, where he was accused of ignoring molestation allegations against the team’s doctor.”

Swalwell’s comments set off a torrent of commentary on social media.


Capitol Insurrection Congress GOP January 6 Uncategorized

WATCH A Democrat Shred Jim Jordan For Defending Jan. 6 Rioters: ‘They’re Criminals!’

Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI) verbally excoriated Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and his Republican colleagues at a House hearing today as they attempted to downplay the horrific January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

During a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, Plaskett responded to opening remarks from Jordan.

“At the end of the day, the purpose of this hearing is to minimize what happened on January 6th and the lawful prosecution of individuals who were engaged in that practice,” she said. “The chairman wants us to believe that people are being persecuted for their political conduct rather than their criminal behavior.”

“So basically, he’s trying to tell us that everyone who’s been indicted and prosecuted for January 6th did not engage in criminal conduct,” she continued. “That’s the logic of what he’s saying, and we’ve just come so low in this House.”

However, Plaskett was just getting warmed up, noting that many in the GOP don’t view Jan. 6 defendants as criminals, although they have been charged and sentenced as such.

“When it’s people who fit your political agenda, they’re not criminals anymore They’re patriots. They’re victims.”

“They’re not! They’re criminals! And a jury of their peers found that when so many of them have been prosecuted in our court of law, not by brown shirts, not by Nancy Pelosi, not by Biden’s Justice Department, by a jury of their peers.”

Plaskett concluded her remarks by suggesting that the hearing was little more than a sop to failed one-term former president Donald Trump, who has also been charged for his role in Jan. 6.

“Unfortunately, many of my colleagues on the other side know the truth, but they’re still seeking shelter from Donald Trump’s hordes. They’re still seeking shelter from the truth.”

“They want to protect not just themselves, but their political careers, their jobs. They’re hiding behind lies for that.”

January 6 will be an issue in the November election, and it damn well should be. The man who urged his supporters to march on the Capitol because he lost in 2020 will once again be on the ballot. Here’s hoping he’s rejected the same way he was four years ago and eventually put behind bars for what remains of his pathetic life.

Ex-Prosecutor: Jordan May Be ‘In League’ With FBI Informant Busted For Russia Ties 

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) may be part of a larger conspiracy to spread Russian lies about President Joe Biden as part of a campaign to benefit Donald Trump, according to former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner.

Speaking with MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin, Kirschner was asked about the recent arrest of Alexander Smirnov, who was taken into custody after being accused of lying to the FBI.

“Were the Republicans in league or incompetent?” Kirschner asked. “It’s one or the other. And here’s the thing. There’s a lot to dislike, sort of every link of the chain here. First of all, the FBI writes down lots of things that human informants and confidential informants say. That doesn’t mean it is necessarily true. Yes, they record it in a form, 1023, but they write it down. It doesn’t mean it’s verified, it doesn’t mean it’s accurate, it doesn’t mean it’s reliable. Once they receive it, they have to go about the hard work of corroborating it, or debunking it. And it sounds like the FBI never corroborated, and indeed, ultimately debunked this disinformation.”

Kirschner added:

“So why this debunked Russian disinformation would then be handed off to Republican members of Congress to be used as the basis to impeach an American president is mystifying, Ayman. And look, let’s use Jim Jordan as an example. You played a clip of him appearing to double down, even though he now knows it’s Russian disinformation, and Smirnov has been indicted for lying to the FBI about the Bidens. Jim Jordan is a serial abuser of his position and his authority. This is the guy who refused to comply with a lawfully issued congressional subpoena because had he complied and testified he might have incriminated Donald Trump.”

Everywhere you look, the GOP has ties to Russia and Russian propaganda which they have tried to use to destroy President Joe Biden and boost Donald Trump. Is it really so hard to believe the Kremlin owns and controls them?
