The feud between Eric Swalwell and Gym Jordan continued during Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee meeting. Jordan hasn’t complied with a subpoena for his role in the January 6th Capitol riot, probably because what he says could be used against him in a court of law. Swalwell brought out the obligatory prop to shame Jordan and Jordan quickly scurried from the room.
As we all know, the party of Law & Order are nothing but a bunch of bad performance artists putting on a show. When the tables are turned, however, they don’t like it and just run away.
During the hearing, GOP Representative Thomas Massie accused Garland of being in contempt of Congress for declining comment on investigations of Hunter Biden, the president’s son.
Swalwell quickly hit back, referring to the Kentucky Republican’s accusations as “quite rich” before calling out Jordan.
“The guy who’s leaving the hearing room right now, Mr. Jordan, is about 500 days into evading his subpoena,” Swalwell said with what appeared to be two tablets in front of him. One screen showed the words: “Jordan Subpoena Evasion” while a second tablet displayed a clock counting the days, hours, minutes and seconds since Jordan refused to comply with his subpoena to testify before Congress regarding the Capitol attack.
“If we’re going to talk about contempt of Congress, let’s get real,” Swalwell said. “Are you serious that Jim Jordan, a witness to one of the greatest crimes ever committed in America … refuses to help this country and we’re going to get lectured about subpoena compliance and contempt of Congress? Jim Jordan won’t even honor a lawful subpoena. Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? There’s no credibility on that side.”
