In recent remarks on Newsmax, Representative Jim Jordan lambasted the lies of the House January 6 Select Committee.
Accusing the committee of crafting a one-sided story, Jordan noted that they had been caught in “eight different lies,” and potentially others that are not yet known.
“We’ve caught them, Eric, in eight different lies,” Jordan announced on “Eric Bolling The Balance.”
These lies included fabrications about the Secret Service, Bernie Kerik’s travel plans, Jenna Ellis’s documents, and other elements of the investigation.
Jordan also noted that the Democrats lied through changing text messages and videos, mainly by removing “the most important part” that would have provided vital context.
A serious issue with the January 6 Committee is the fact that they do not produce evidence for any of their assertions, which also casts doubt upon the validity of their statements in general.
“We don’t get to see the transcripts or the video or all the documents they have,” Jordan noted, “so imagine how many other things they’re not telling us the truth about, that we have no idea of.”
Another huge issue is that no opportunity to cross-examine exists, which is a key element of fair judicial trials.
In all major cases, witnesses are subject to cross-examination, yet in the proceedings against Trump, all eyewitness accounts are taken as absolute fact, even when they fly definitively in the face of reality.
“The whole point of our adversarial system is you have to have cross examination, but now, for the first time in American history, we have a committee where that’s not permitted,” Jordan remarked in disbelief.
The representative noted that all nine people on the committee voted in favor of impeaching Trump, clearly illustrating their bias against the former president.
Given the partisan nature of the investigation, which borders on the type of trials seen in authoritarian nations, Jordan observes that the trial “is not healthy for our great nation.”
The Department of Justice is supposed to be an objective, balanced entity, avoiding partisanship at all costs.
However, the current department is “focused on politics instead of the rule of law,” Jordan remarked, much to the detriment of the nation.
