Liz Cheney and the Select Committee investigating Jan 6 want to sit down and talk with GOP Rep. Jim Jordan about what he and Trump talked about in the days leading up to Jan 6. Jordan is the second GOP Rep the Committee has made such a request to.
Yesterday they asked Pennsylvania Rep Scott Perry to submit to questions but he told them to go pound sand. Jordan has not commented on the request.
“We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on Jan. 6. We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail. And we also wish to inquire about any communications you had on January 5th or 6th with those in the Willard War Room, the Trump legal team, White House personnel or others involved in organizing or planning the actions and strategies for January 6th,” Chair Bennie Thompson wrote in the letter to Jordan.
The letter continued:
“Public reporting suggests that you may also have information about meetings with White House officials and the then-President in November and December 2020, and early-January 2021, about strategies for overturning the results of the 2020 election.
“We would also like to ask you about any discussions involving the possibility of presidential pardons for individuals involved in any aspect of Jan. 6 or the planning for Jan. 6.
“When you were asked during a Rules Committee hearing on October 20, 2021, whether you would be willing to share with the Select Committee the information you have regarding Jan. 6 and the events leading up to that day, you responded, ‘I’ve said all along, I have nothing to hide. I’ve been straightforward all along.”
Perry yesterday rebuffed the Committee saying: “I stand with immense respect for our Constitution, the Rule of Law, and the Americans I represent who know that this entity is illegitimate, and not duly constituted under the rules of the US House of Representatives.
“I decline this entity’s request and will continue to fight the failures of the radical Left who desperately seek distraction from their abject failures of crushing inflation, a humiliating surrender in Afghanistan, and the horrendous crisis they created at our border.”
