Jim Jordan Blasts "Political Charade" Of January 6 Committee
Rep. Jim Jordan spoke out about why Republicans are not participating in the January 6 Capitol riot investigative committee as its first hearings began Tuesday.
"Why wasn't there a better security posture on that day?" Jordan asked. "Pelosi's office [had ordered] that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol grounds... the discussion focused on the 'Optics.' Why were Democrats so focused on optics? About how it would look?"
"It is all driven by what happened last summer, when Democrats normalized anarchy, normalized political violence, raised bail money for [rioters and looters]... When you spend a year talking about defunding the police, it is kind of hard to have more police here on January 6 like they should have done," Jordan said.
