Stay tuned. We’re just getting started.
GOP Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) will spearhead the committee.
“We have a duty to get into these agencies and look at how they have been weaponized to go against the very people they’re supposed to represent, how they have infringed on First Amendment liberties of the American people. And we’re going to do that,” Jordan said on Fox News Sunday. “We’re going to do it in a way that’s consistent with the Constitution. But we’re going to do it vigorously. We’re going to do it aggressively. Because that’s our job.”
Congressman Jordan went off on Democrats over the government weaponization from the House floor on Tuesday.
Jim Jordan blasted Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, and Merrick Garland on Tuesday.
