Jen Psaki Just Laid The Ultimate Burn On Jim Jordan And His Sham Congressional Hearings

Sunday on her MSNBC show, former White House press secretary Jen Psaki let House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) have it with both barrels, calling him out for the hypocrisy of his demanding that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg testify before his committee on the issue of his office’s possible future indictment of failed former president Donald Trump.

Psaki began by noting that Jordan and other Republicans in Congress only want to question Bragg so they can try and extract information from him that would benefit the disgraced ex-president.

“I’m not freaking out about what [House Speaker] Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) or Jim Jordan are up to because I’m not sure they really thought all of this through. For one, these Republicans have gone out on a limb — way out, way out on a limb. To start with they are defending Trump before they even know what charges he might face.”

She added:

“From a legal perspective, experts point out that Jim Jordan and his colleagues are overestimating their power including my guest [former AG Eric Holder] I just had on, the former attorney general of the United States. The former counsel to the House Judiciary Committee also pointed out this week that Congress cannot lawfully use its investigative power to engage in law enforcement. Even if they resorted to a subpoena, he also wrote, any such subpoenas should be unenforceable.”

As for Jordan’s hearings on the “weaponization” of government in the Biden administration and fake “whistleblowers,” Psaki remarked, “It turned out they weren’t really whistleblowers at all. In fact, they weren’t even credible witnesses. That was according to a Democratic report which revealed that none of those witnesses provided anything of substance. Instead, they endorsed conspiracy theories related to January 6th, the efficacy of Covid vaccines and the outcome of the 2020 election.”

At the end of the day, Psaki concluded, Jordan and his GOP associates are all hat and no cattle:

“If all that wasn’t bad enough, the report also exposed how the witnesses were basically bought and paid for by former Trump officials — you can’t make it up sometimes. Again, when it comes to these attacks on Alvin Bragg, House Republicans are not only on pretty shaky legal ground, they also haven’t shown themselves to be the most competent of investigators. There is no Sherlock Holmes in the group here that we can see.”

Jim Jordan is certainly no Sherlock Holmes. Matter of fact, he’s one of the dumbest son of a bitches currently walking on the face of the Earth.

Aide To Jim Jordan Whines That A Staffer In Alvin Bragg’s Office Hung Up When He Called

When he demanded information from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) probably thought Bragg would agree to cooperate with the committee.

But it turns out that Jordan was sadly mistaken, as staffers for Bragg are making it clear they aren’t impressed with Jordan’s requests and have no intention of even taking phone calls from the congressman’s office.

According to The New York Post:

Rude reps for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg told a House Judiciary staffer to “stop calling us with this bulls–t” after he made multiple attempts to get in touch by phone.

The Judiciary Committee staffer who called Bragg’s office at noon on Wednesday was promptly hung up on after he identified himself to a woman who answered the phone, a person familiar with the call told The Post.

When the staffer called back a second time and identified himself, a second woman bluntly told him, “Your committee has no jurisdiction over us. You’re wrong. Stop calling us with this bulls—t,” the insider said.

The Jordan aide added, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen any government entity respond to Congress in that manner. It’s quite embarrassing, but I don’t think anyone is surprised based on how partisan that office has become.”

Keep in mind that Jordan and the House of Representatives don’t have a right to request anything from Bragg’s office. Congress has zero jurisdiction over local prosecutors. A DA like Bragg answers to the voters who elected him, in this case residents of New York County, which includes Manhattan.

Bragg’s general counsel, Leslie Dubeck, has already responded to Jordan and his committee, calling their investigation “an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution” 

Bragg is considering charging former president Donald Trump with a felony for paying hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 run for the presidency. A grand jury is expected to hand down indictments sometime next week in the case.

WATCH Jim Jordan Have A Childish Meltdown During House Hearing On The Second Amendment

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) showed his ass and pitched a fit during a House hearing on guns and the Second Amendment today, whining about new restrictions being imposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives (ATF).

Specifically, the ATF has implemented a new rule which reclassifies any firearm with a pistol stabilizing brace as a short-barreled rifle, which means it requires a license for ownership. That led Jordan to go on an unhinged and childish rant aimed directly at the ATF, asking witness GOP witness Alex Bosco, founder and inventor of the stabilizing brace:

“So while they were doing their study they didn’t count the number of braces being sold? That’s probably because [Everytown for Gun Safety] told them not to count it, right?”

Bosco said he didn’t know the answer to the question, so Jordan answered it for him.

“They were talking to them all the time, putting this all together, going after people who support the Second Amendment. How many Americans do you think it is total? I’ve heard estimates as many as 40 million Americans could be impacted by this.”

After Bosco confirmed the 40 million number, Jordan continued his meltdown.

“Unless you remove the brace, lengthen the barrel, turn in or destroy your firearm or register your gun with this government that you know you can trust because Mr. Wilcox (of Everytown for Gun Safety) has been working with them. Unless you do those four things, what happens? What are you? A felon. A felon for something 10 years ago they said was just fine, that you built a business on, a business that you started because you wanted to help a man who put the uniform of his country on his back and served our country and was injured, and now they’re going to put you out of business and make people felons. But don’t worry, Everytown USA and Mr. Wilcox has been working with our government to implement this to target Americans who support the Second Amendment — such a deal, such a deal.”

“That’s why we need legislation to say this rule doesn’t — we need to pass that legislation,” Jordan added. “That’s what we do need to pass this law now, based on what has happened with this organization.”

Jim Jordan Gets Lit Up Online For His Bizarre Fire Emoji Tweet Defending Donald Trump

The Twitter account belonging to the House Judiciary Committee — which is chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) — sent out a bizarre tweet Tuesday which defended failed former president Donald Trump, who is expected to be indicted sometime this week by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for illegal hush money payments the ex-president made to Stormy Daniels in order to hide an affair he had with her.

Here’s the tweet:

As HuffPost notes, other Twitter users weren’t quite sure what to make of the posting.

Some critics laughed at the idea of an account apparently run by Jordan endorsing his own quote.

Others edited the message, suggesting it could have stopped after three words: “We don’t think.”

Many just marveled at the use of burning emojis.

The tweet did serve on purpose: It set off a wave of hilarious mockery that echoed across social media.


Michael Cohen Has A Warning For Jim Jordan – And It’s ON POINT: VIDEO

Earlier today, former Trump attorney and fixer Michael Cohen testified again before a grand jury impaneled by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as part of the investigation being conducted into hush money payments the disgraced former president made to Stormy Daniels, which is a violation of New York election law.

You may recall that when Cohen testified before House Oversight Committee in 2019, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) viciously attacked him, accusing him of lying before the panel.

At one point, Jordan remarked:

“This might be the first time someone convicted of lying to Congress has appeared again so quickly in front of Congress.”

However, Cohen gave as good as he got, telling Jordan:

“Shame on you, Mr. Jordan. I am remorseful. I am going to prison. I will be away from my wife and children for years.”

And now Cohen has a warning for the Ohio Republican, going on MSNBC Wednesday after he testified before the Manhattan grand jury and noting:

“I know what you are doing. I know the playbook. Because I helped to write it for Donald. It’s not going to work for you. Truth is the truth. And as Buddha says, truth will always rise.”

Truth will indeed always rise, and truth is something Jim Jordan doesn’t know the first damn thing about.
