Jim Jordan on Capitol breaches: We caught ‘em lying … imagine the other things they’re telling us

(Video: Fox News)

Thanks to their own hypocrisy, the narrative the Jan. 6 committee has tried to build since the Capitol was breached nearly a year and a half ago is crumbling and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is demanding answers on “how many other lies” the Democrats may be telling.

While the partisan witch hunt of the Jan. 6 committee was attempting to build toward a crescendo on national television, its own members were proving it to be a farce through their own overt behaviors. As previously reported, CBS staffers from Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” were arrested after it was alleged that Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Jake Auchincloss (D-Mass.) gave them entry and left them unsupervised after hours.

As ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan was joined by Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) in penning a letter to U.S. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger seeking all pertinent information on the arrest of those seven individuals. He joined Fox News host Jesse Watters Monday to discuss the letter and how the committee has been lying about the facts surrounding Jan. 6 from the start.

“We have caught them in major lies,” Jordan alleged during the conversation as he detailed the manner in which the committee has withheld evidence for the investigation.

“That’s why we sent the letter, Jesse, we’d like to know – the same questions you asked – we’d like to know who these individuals are, what happened to ’em, what exactly they were charged with and maybe most importantly what the video shows,” he told Watters.

In the letter, the Republican lawmaker wrote in part, “These individuals were arrested and charged with unlawful entry after causing ‘disturbances’ at the offices of several Republican members, including ‘banging’ on their office doors.”

“I thought the Jan. 6 committee was supposed to be the most important investigation, the most solemn, serious committee in the history of the Republic. If that’s the case, then why are they working with some comedy crew, letting them in to videotape whatever they were gonna videotape, and letting them in the Capitol complex illegally?” he asked. “So, I think that’s a question. This whole double standard and this idea that they get to have it both ways drives me crazy, you crazy, and I think all the folks who are watching – drives them crazy as well.”

The congressman then brought up the testimony from Manger that cleared Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) of any wrongdoing after he had been accused by the Jan. 6 committee of leading a family on a reconnaissance tour of the Capitol on Jan. 5, 2021.

Jordan called it a “complete exoneration” before noting how the committee responded to it, “But the Jan. 6 committee just doubled down and says, ‘Oh no, we don’t believe what the Capitol Hill Police Chief said. We still think that happened.’ And yet, then just a couple days later this happens?”

“They let people in illegally – they get arrested for doing a surveillance, doing some kind of reconnaissance – that to me is the real irony here,” he continued. “And I think the interesting thing here is, if you go back to what happened to Barry Loudermilk, to our colleague, we only get to see a little bit of all the evidence this committee sees and yet, we have caught them – with just that little bit of evidence we get – we have caught them in major lies.”

“We caught ’em lying about me in a text message I had forwarded to the chief of staff at the White House, we catch ’em in this lie about Congressman Loudermilk – imagine what other things they’re telling us that aren’t accurate based on all the information we don’t get to see,” he expressed.

“That’s, I think, a big concern that we have is, all that information we never get to access to the documents and yet we don’t know what…that’s all based on. How many other lies are they telling if we’ve caught ’em in just a couple with the limited amount of information we are privy to?” Jordan concluded.
