The American people deserve to know the truth

If you haven't heard, let me tell you about Republican Congressman Jim Jordan. He's one of Donald Trump's biggest enablers, and there's now evidence that directly contradicts what he told me about his phone calls with Donald Trump on the morning of the January 6th attack.

Jim Jordan has spent months and months dodging a simple question: when did he speak to Donald Trump on January 6th, and what did they talk about?

So during an October Rules Committee hearing, I decided to ask him a simple question and wait: "did you talk before, during, or after the attack on the Capitol?" And he said after. I even gave him a chance to clarify and he repeated himself: the call happened after.

I wish I could say I was shocked when new evidence came to light that Jim Jordan and Donald Trump had a 10-minute conversation on the morning of January 6th, just before he objected to President Biden's Electoral College win.

Apparently Jordan still "doesn't recall" their conversation. Give me a break! When the President of the United States calls you on the day of the insurrection... you remember.

What did Trump and Jim Jordan talk about? What are they trying to hide, and why don't they want people to know when they spoke?

These are not small questions. If members of Congress were complicit in the attack, we need to know.

Jim Jordan owes it to the country to go before the January 6th committee and answer some questions under oath. The American people deserve to know the truth.

And here's the worst part: if Republicans take the majority, Jim Jordan will likely become chairman of the Judiciary Committee. That should terrify everyone who believes in equal justice under the law.

Chip in now to join our grassroots movement and keep them out.

Republicans have already told us what they plan to do if they win in 2022: throw out votes they don't like, normalize political violence, and do whatever they need to do to stay in power, democracy be damned.

We must keep and expand our majority in 2022. Join our grassroots movement and chip in today.
