Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) issued a letter refusing to cooperate, which could trigger the process for Committee 1/6 to return him criminally for prosecution.

Jim Jordan’s letter was an admission of guilt
In his letter, Jordan complained that the committee pre-judged the results of their investigation, said they would not let him, a 1/6 coup co-conspirator, sit on the committee. He also claimed the committee abused the information and took a tangent about inflation and President Biden being a threat to America.
Nowhere in Jordan’s letter did he address the issue of his communications with Donald Trump and his involvement in the attempt to cancel the election.
Representative Jordan released a political document that will be well broadcast on Fox News, but it is also an admission of guilt.
The Ohio congressman did not try to address the issues and clear his name, and he avoided any discussion of his role in the attack.
Committee 1/6 must subpoena Jim Jordan and if he refuses to appear, send him back for prosecution
Representative Jordan’s only semi-offered defense was that on 1/6 he was acting in his official capacity as a congressman, but Jordan’s conversations with Trump’s White House also took place before the attack on Capitol Hill.
Jordan cannot hide behind the immunity accorded to members of Congress when acting in an official capacity.
Committee 1/6 is to subpoena Representative Jim Jordan, and if he does not appear, they are to hold him in contempt of Congress and send him back to the DOJ for criminal prosecution.
