Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan blasted claims that he discussed presidential pardons with Congress after defending voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.
Jordan shared the remarks during a Fox News interview with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.

Yeah, fake news,” Jordan said. “The witness said I didn’t request a pardon, and I didn’t request a pardon because I didn’t do anything wrong, and I never in relation to Jan. 6 discussed pardons.”
“This committee, I think the country understands, is purely partisan,” Jordan added. “And they’re frankly not paying much attention to what’s being said.”

The ongoing attacks on Jordan have been strong as he was one of the most vocal supporters in Congress regarding claims of voting fraud and pushed for the election not to be certified.
The attack on Jordan appears to be an easy move on the part of the Jan. 6 House select committee, though the effort is unlikely to accomplish anything but a continued discussion of Democrats talking to Democrats as part of the ongoing push to discredit conservatives ahead of the November midterms.
