When he declined to assist with the Jan. 6 panel and called the US House investigation into what happened at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a “political witch hunt,” US Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) made headlines in the New York Times in June.
The House Jan. 6 committee is preparing a final report with its conclusions as their rule is drawing to a close and the impending mid-term elections approach; nonetheless, the political persecution is still ongoing.
The committee held eight hearings over the course of the summer in an effort to demonstrate how Trump disregarded many of his closest advisors and emphasized the phony allegations of election fraud that the RINO-Left wanted people to believe.
According to their story, it was all Trump’s fault when the angry Trump fans physically stormed the building and politicians. The committee is also committed to portraying the millions of Trump supporters as deranged domestic terrorists.
However, not everybody believes that tale.
The Ohio Republican congressman, a close confidant of former President Donald Trump, criticized the House probe into the Capitol incident as a “partisan witch hunt” by the Democrats.
Jordan, an advocate of America First principles, is now preparing to take on the dishonest House Committee once more.
“Jordan is warning the Democrats’ committee investigating the incident at the U.S. Capitol last January is a “political operation” aimed at stopping Donald Trump from running for president in 2024,” according to Martin Walsh of Conservative Brief.
“There’s been subpoenas issued to 11 individuals, 11 American citizens who asked the government permission on an application to hold the Trump rally,” according to Jordan.“The government granted it and now the January 6 committee petitions them to ask them questions about exercising their First Amendment right to assemble.”
“And why would they subpoena me? I didn’t do anything wrong — I talked to the president,” Jordan claimed. “I talk to the president all the time. I just think that’s — you know where I’m at on this commission — this is all about going after President Trump. That seems obvious.”
“Everyone in the country sees this as a political operation. This is designed to get after President Trump. Because they don’t want him to run again,” he said.
Democrats “haven’t stopped there,” according to Walsh.
“The Democrat-led U.S. House Oversight Committee announced last Thursday that it reached a deal with Trump over his financial records. CNN reported that the committee agreed to end litigation over Trump’s personal financial records.
The committee stated in a press release that Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars, will turn over the 45th president’s financial records. CNN reported the filing doesn’t offer specifics about the terms of the deal.
The Democrat-led committee issued its first subpoena for Trump’s financial records in April 2019, which has resulted in a three-year battle,” Walsh stated.
“After numerous court victories, I am pleased that my Committee has now reached an agreement to obtain key financial documents that former President Trump fought for years to hide from Congress,” House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney said.
“After facing years of delay tactics, the Committee has now reached an agreement with the former President and his accounting firm, Mazars USA, to obtain critical documents. These documents will inform the Committee’s efforts to get to the bottom of former President Trump’s egregious conduct and ensure that future presidents do not abuse their position of power for personal gain” Maloney continued.
According to the agreement struck by the committee, “Under the agreement reached by the Committee, former President Trump has agreed not to further appeal the D.C. Circuit’s ruling, and Mazars USA has agreed to comply with the court’s order and produce responsive documents to the Committee as expeditiously as possible.”
A federal judge determined earlier this month that House Democrats should be permitted to obtain some of Trump’s tax records by serving a subpoena on his accounting firm, Mazars USA.
According to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the House of Representatives has the authority to subpoena Trump’s tax returns.
The court provided background information, stating that “The Chairman of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means filed a statutory request for documents from the Department of the Treasury related to then-President Donald J. Trump and related entities.”
“Treasury initially objected to the request, and the Committee filed this lawsuit. After a change of administrations, Treasury acquiesced, stating that it intended to comply with the request.
In the meantime, the Trump Parties intervened in the action. The district court ruled in favor of the Committee. Intervenors appeal. For the reasons set forth below, we affirm.”

“As a general rule, Title 26, Section 6103 of the United States Code makes tax returns and return information confidential unless their release is authorized by an exception enumerated in that same section,” the court’s majority opinion held.
