During a recent fundraiser for the staunchly conservative House Freedom Caucus, Representative Jim Jordan appealed to donors by referencing his confrontation with Alvin L. Bragg.
This is the Manhattan prosecutor responsible for criminally charging former President Donald Trump. Jordan asserted such endeavors were backed by their financial contributions.
Jordan Defends Actions, Says He’s Fulfilling Promises Made to Constituents
“The Manhattan district attorney employed federal funds to indict the ex-president, despite the absence of a crime, only for them to drag us into court upon launching our investigation.”
Jordan, the influential Judiciary Committee’s chairman, informed donors of this at an exclusive gathering in Tennessee last week, as per the audio of the event procured by the New York Times.
“The absurdity has reached such heights. Thus, we express our gratitude for your hard-earned monetary support.”
Perhaps one of the best explanations you’ll hear in regards to all the tremendous accomplishments @realDonaldTrump was able to achieve during his presidency.

As a sexual abuse scandal at Ohio State University jeopardized his political trajectory, Jordan retaliated in his signature manner, previously undisclosed.
Jordan contacted an aging wrestler’s parents, urging them to convince their son to retract allegations that he had knowledge of the abuse yet remained inactive, based on interviews conducted for this piece.
“I never intended to be an irritant,” Jordan remarked during an interview. “My objective was to fulfill the promises made to the electorate. It appeared as though the preceding Republican leaders fell short in executing their duties.”
Jordan Leverages Judiciary Panel Position to Trump, Attack Opponents
When Trump required a devoted battalion to scrutinize and erode confidence in the 2020 election results, Jordan spearheaded the offensive in Congress during the weeks preceding the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection.
Currently, at 59 years old, Jordan leverages his position within the judiciary panel to safeguard his most influential political benefactor, Trump, and to assail his opponents.
Lawyers nationwide just came out in support of the Manhattan DA vs House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, who's meddling in the Trump case.
They say "the attempted congressional interference in this case is an outrageous & unprecedented overreach that should be swiftly rejected." pic.twitter.com/uKUbHwKiQm

Meanwhile, during Monday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on violent crime in Manhattan, Rep. Jerry Nadler accused Rep. Jim Jordan of “performing the bidding” for former President Trump.
The GOP-controlled committee declared the field hearing in New York City shortly after a grand jury assembled by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) voted to indict the former president.This article appeared in Right Wing Insider and has been published here with permission.
