Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, called being subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 committee “one more step” in Democrats’ bid to “arm” the government on “The Faulkner Focus” Friday while calling the Governance Council of misinformation, infant formula crisis, inflation and reports of federal inquiries into parents outraged by school programs.

JANUARY 6 SUBPOENAS MCCARTHY COMMITTEE, JORDAN, 3 OTHER GOP LEGISLATIVES TO TESTIFY

Jim Jordan: Well look, the Democrats broke every kind of precedent you can imagine with what they did to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows with that subpoena and vote of contempt . I mean, what they’re doing at the Department of Justice for moms and dads, forming a misinformation governance council. I mean, they’re doing things that we’ve never seen, the militarization of government and now the militarization of this committee, where for the first time, Harris, never forget that first time in history, the history of the House of Representatives, since we’ve been a country where the leader of the minority was not allowed to place in a select committee the people he or she had chosen. So you can just vote by proxy in the chair, closing the Capitol to the American people. We continue again and again. Things we’ve never seen. It’s just one more step in the crazy things they do. All the while you have mothers who can’t get formula. You have 41 years of high inflation. We continue again and again. So you think about that. Moms cannot get formula milk and everything they need for their sons and daughters because their families cost more. And oh, by the way, we’re going to target you if you show up at a school board meeting to defend your child. That is what this administration has done. And what are the Democrats doing to break all the precedents, all the standards that we have that keep our separate and equal branches of government functioning as they are supposed to under the Constitution?
