The United States House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot requested information from Republican Representative Jim Jordan on his communications with former President Donald Trump on the day of the attack.
In a letter sent to Jordan on Dec. 22, the Committee said that it is seeking for Jordan’s “voluntary cooperation” in the investigation to discuss “at least one and possibly multiple communications” he had with Trump on Jan. 5 and on Jan. 6.
“We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail. And we also wish to inquire about any communications you had on January 5th or 6th with those in the Willard War Room, the Trump legal team, White House personnel or others involved in organizing or planning the actions and strategies for January 6th,” Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson wrote.
Thompson also said that Jordan reportedly has information about the meetings with White House officials and Trump in November and December 2020 and early January 2021 on efforts to overturn the presidential election results.
Thompson also noted that Jordan signaled a willingness to cooperate with the Committee when he said he had “nothing to hide” during a a Rules Committee hearing on October 20, 2021.
The Committee proposed a meeting with Jordan on Jan. 3, Jan. 4, or on the week of Jan. 10. They also proposed holding the interview in Jordan’s district if he prefers.
