Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) finally confessed that he spoke to Donald Trump on Jan. 6, which means he’s at least an essential witness.
Ohios @Jim_Jordan confirms to me:
“I spoke to … [Trump] on January 6th. “
Before, during or after the attack?
“I talked to him that day, after that? I’m thinking. I don’t know if I spoke to him in the morning or not. I just don’t know … I don’t know when these conversations took place. ”Pic.twitter.com/h4fbuMYtk0

When asked if he spoke to Trump on January 6th, Jordan replied, “Yes, I spoke to the (former) president last week. I talk to the (former) president all the time. I spoke to him on January 6th. I talk to President Trump all the time. “
So, in Jordan’s narrative, he and Trump are besties who talk all the time.
Jordan became much more evasive when asked on January 6th when speaking to Trump, “Um, I spoke to him the day after? I’m thinking. I don’t know if I spoke to him in the morning or not. I don’t know when these conversations took place. “
Jim Jordan must appear before the 1/6 committee to testify
It is believed that Rep. Jordan knows a lot more than he admits. January 6th was not an ordinary day at the Capitol, so it is unfathomable for Jordan to say he did not know when he spoke to Trump on the day the nation was attacked by domestic terrorists.
Jim Jordan’s evasive maneuver, combined with the fact that if his voice was several octaves higher than when asked when he spoke to Trump, is a pretty big indication that the 1/6 Select Committee summons Rep. Jordan and must find out exactly what he knows to put him under oath and ask the big questions.
Spokesman Pelosi was 100% right to keep Jim Jordan off the 1/6 investigation.
