Jordan said on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures when asked if he would subpoena Alvin Bragg:
It’s all on the table Maria we’ll talk with the other president and look at the response we just got his letter we’re looking at that but we think it’s here I think maybe the thing more important than we think it is the more it involves all of us i don’t think it’s an accident that the same week we learn that the IRS knocked on Matt Taibbi’s door as he is testifying to congress the same week as when we hear that a district attorney is going left the district attorney is the Soros district attorney going after the former president of the United States.
I mean that’s the scary thing they paid a stranger think about it they paid a stranger to build a fake case to spy on president trump’s campaign the FTC sends letters to twitter asking who are journalists you talk to and then of course when Matt Taibbi testifies the IRS knocks on his door and now an impeachment of a former president the guy who happens to be leading in every poll it’s about of all of us, it’s about coming out after anyone who opposes the agenda of the left the agenda of the establishment and that is perhaps the scariest thing of all.
Jordan was trying to scare Trump supporters into coming out to protest. Trump’s defenders always try to make his supporters feel connected to the indictment and as if the indictment endangers them. Rep Jordan even used the word scary.
Jim Jordan knows that Bragg will never have to testify before the House, and there is nothing the House can do to get him to testify because House Republicans have no oversight jurisdiction over a local prosecutor.
Jordan doesn’t want to talk about something that even he probably knows will never happen so he’s been throwing up a bunch of conspiracy theories and trying to compound the fear because Trump supporters aren’t protesting the myth of the politics of the former president. could be broken.
