Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said no one with common sense would speak to the 1/6 Committee and accused the committee of getting Trump.

Jordan said on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures:
Well, first of all I think soanyone with common sense woulddon’t be afraid to talk to this onecommittee.They have already proven they willChanging evidence and lyingAmericans about it.So you have to ask yourselfknow what they are up toif they prove they willthat.
And then second, I thinkeveryone in the country seesthis as a political operation.This is designed to come afterPresident Trump because they don’t want him to run againbecause President Trump, i think will run againand I think he will win.And as you rightly point out,Maria, they’re not going to look at thisa person, the speaker of the Hhouse and its responsibilityBennie Thompson, you— chairman of the committeeBasically, it’s taboo and she is the one in chargefor the security of the United state capitol.
Jim Jordan basically admitted that he does not speak to the committee to protect Trump
Jim Jordan’s comments raise even more questions about what Trump said about him. If Trump didn’t say anything that could be construed as incriminating, it would be good for both Jordan and Trump if the Ohio congressman told the committee what he knows.
Trump has already implicated Jim Jordan in the coup plan, so Jordan has a self-preservation motive to keep his mouth shut.
Jim Jordan knows something and he doesn’t want the committee to find out, which is why he’s participating in a 1/6 cover-up for Trump.
