Jean’s house. 6 Committee requests “voluntary cooperation” from GOP REP. Jim Jordan

Last week, the committee asked Representatives Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Scott Perry, R-Pennsylvania, to voluntarily cooperate with their investigation into the events that led to the riots. The two congressmen refused both requests.

“I stand in great respect for our Constitution, the rule of law, and the Americans I represent who know that this entity is illegal, and not duly constituted under the rules of the United States House of Representatives,” Perry chirp on time. He went on to suggest that the commission was an attempt to divert attention from the Biden administration’s “absolute failures.”

On December 13, the House committee voted 7-0 to recommend that Meadows be prosecuted for criminal contempt of Congress after he refused to testify before the committee. The next day, the House of Representatives voted 222 to 208 in favor of a similar resolution and sent the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, D.C.
