Jim Jordan wants to keep a check on House Democrats investigations

GOP Rep Jim Jordan. A conservatism of über-literalism.

11/29/18
President Donald Trump likes Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) because Jordan is good at defending Trump on TV. It makes Jordan exactly the kind of person Trump wants in the room as House Democrats look to wield their newfound power. But not all House Republicans are on board. Jordan is the kind of Republican who still wants to talk about investigating Hillary Clinton. He loves to echo Trump in calling the Russia investigation a “witch hunt.” Rep. Mark Meadows (NC) as the chair of the House Freedom Caucus, has been right alongside him. Together, they have bent over backward to support Trump through every scandal. They’re good at getting in front of the camera, and it’s put them in good graces with the president, who frequently speaks to the two directly. They’ve used that relationship to lobby Trump to support them on their pet issues, from threatening government shutdowns to restrictive social policy around LGBTQ rights. Two weeks before the midterms, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found that calls to impeach Trump, along with undocumented immigrants crossing the border, were the issues that angered the Republican base most. Republicans tried to use the specter of impeachment on the campaign trail to energize their base. House Democrats are ready to be the Resistance. And hardline conservatives want their loudest, most Trump-allied voices to protect the president.

Well Mr. Jordan, as I was told for the past two tears, elections have consequences. American voters strongly signaled that they want accountability back in government.

Now you get to play the minority role and suck the hind-tit. Have fun with that.
