Republicans consider moving Jim Jordan to House Intelligence Committee

Source: cbs





November 5, 2019 / 9:52 AM / CBS News

Washington — As the impeachment inquiry enters its public phase, top Republicans in the House are weighing whether to temporarily assign Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the panel that will conduct the initial public hearings. Discussions about adding Jordan to the committee are "active and serious," a senior Republican involved in the process told CBS News.

Jordan, currently the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee and an outspoken defender of President Trump, has essentially led Republican efforts in the closed-door impeachment proceedings thus far, where three committees have been able to participate. His top investigator, Steve Castor, has conducted the bulk of witness questioning.

If Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy were to temporarily assign Jordan to the Intelligence Committee, he would have to make room for him by removing a current member. The move would also undermine Devin Nunes, the committee's top Republican. McCarthy has sole discretion over Intelligence Committee assignments.

8. Hey! Stop insulting weasels! The Mustelidae family is HIGHLY offended by the comparison.

They are noble, INTELLIGENT creatures compared to Gym-rat Jordan and "Devil" Nunes, who together have the alpha-wave output of a rutabaga. They don't deserve to be demeaned like this.

5. What ever happened to the punishment Schiff and Pelosi asked the sergeant-at-arms

to give to the republicans, including Jordan, who violated the SCIF with cellular devices? Why does Jordan still have a security clearance at this point?

7. Didn't Jordan just violate House SCIF security regulations with his little cell phone sleepover?

He should never be able to hold a security clearance in the U.S. again. But then again, in anything but a bizarro world come to life Jeff Sessions would be in prison for perjury.

9. Let them. The Dems are going to give their time in a block to a professional...

prosecutor to question the witnesses. If the repugs want to let that idiot blowhard do their talking for them, God bless their stupid hearts.

Maybe it makes sense to them since the facts are against them and they have nothing left but flame throwing.

14. Sadly

Republicans in congress are only interested in shielding trump from impeachment. At this point I don't even understand why when they have full control of the senate and can make their noxious last stand there. Them seem not to have the least bit interest in actually governing, only blocking good government from happening. And they are successfully pulling it off. By American standards we currently have no federal government, what we are witnessing is entertainment only. I reject the charade.

15. Well if McCarthy and Gaetz think it's a grand idea....

Want could possibly go wrong?

This is nothing but BS PR. They seem to think Jordan does a good job because he creates sound bites and clips of his oh so intimidating self.

17. I looked through the backgrounds of every person on the House Intel committee

The Democrats almost all have JDs from top law schools

Only 2 Republicans that I saw had JDs, and both were from not as well known law schools

It's a legal and intellectual mismatch between the two sides

He shit the bed in the Benghazi hearings and he will fail here if they are dumb enough to put him in. He can huff and he can puff but he can’t blow this house impeachment hearing down.

Don't expect him to grow into the job, either.
