The committee requested an interview with Jim Jordan, one of Donald Trump's closest House allies. Jordan spoke to Trump at least once during the chaos that overtook the Capitol after the election results were certified.
You had at least one communication with President Trump on January 6th. The select panel's chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), wrote a letter requesting an interview to discuss each communication.
The panel wants to know if Jordan had conversations with anyone in the White House, the Trump legal team or anyone else involved in planning the actions and strategies for January 6th. Thompson said in his letter that Jordan has said he has nothing to hide and that he has been asked if he would talk to the committee.
The office of Jordan did not respond to the request for comment.
The source of the Jan. 4 text message to then-White House Chief of Staff MarkMeadows was Jordan. A former Pentagon inspector general created the strategy. Jordan didn't say if he endorsed it or sent it to them.
Don't forget! The House Freedom Caucus was founded a decade ago. Kevin McCarthy picked Jordan to sit on the same panel that wants to interview him about the runup to Jan. 6.
When Speaker Nancy Pelosi vetoed Jordan's involvement, Democrats made clear that they saw Jordan as a potential witness. Pelosi picked Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for the select committee.
Kyle Cheney and Olivia Beavers are related.
