Jim Jordan Tells Fox News that He’ll Explore Defunding the Police Due to the Trump Indictment

In the aftermath of the announcement by the Manhattan District Attorney that Donald Trump has been indicted for multiple counts of criminal activities, Trump’s cult operatives in Congress the media have pounced on the D.A., and every other law enforcement agency, whether or not they had anything to do with the indictments.

The reactions to Trump’s legal tribulations by his defenders range from simmering outrage to rapidly boiling outrage. Not surprisingly, Fox News has led the parade of Trump sycophants seeking to absolve the former reality TV game show host of any culpability for his crimes, even though they don’t know what the charges are. It’s a transparent effort to gain favor with Trump and his cult disciples following the embarrassing disclosures of how much they privately hate him and don’t believe his lies.

On Sunday morning Rep. Jim Jordan, the GOP chair of the Judiciary Committee, visited with Fox’s Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, to discuss the Trump indictments. The theme of the segment involved their distracting narrative about whether or not federal funds were used in the Manhattan D.A.’s investigation. And that irrelevant issue led to the following exchange…

Jordan: We’re legislators. Our job is to pass legislation – write laws and pass legislation. So we’ll look at that. And maybe most important, Maria, we control the power of the purse. We’re going to have to look at the appropriations process and limit funds going to some of these agencies. Particularly the ones that are engaged in the most egregious behavior.
Bartiromo: So the DOJ and the FBI?
Jordan: Yeah. And what I’d really like, frankly, I’d really like for the government just to stay out of the election process.

Jordan’s professed interest in passing legislation is a brazen departure from reality. Since assuming the chairmanship of the committee, Jordan has been singularly focused on partisan probes that have nothing to do with any pending legislation.

What’s more, Jordan’s promise to look at appropriations for the Department of Justice and the FBI amount to nothing less than defunding the police. And while his intent is only to obstruct any investigations into the unlawful acts of his Republican confederates, those agencies also handle such pertinent public safety matters as counterterrorism and drug trafficking. Apparently to Jordan and Fox News, national security is expendable in exchange for covering up GOP malfeasance.

The position that Jordan is taking on the government’s role in the election process is perhaps the most hypocritical. It is Jordan himself who is the one exploiting his post in order to impose on electoral politics. His entire agenda as committee chair is to damage Democrats so that Republicans can cling to their narrow majority in the House and abuse the power that comes with it. That’s why the only hearings he’s held to date have been on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the false premise that Internet platforms are biased in favor of Democrats.

Meanwhile, Jordan and the GOP are ignoring Trump’s crimes, as well as those of his family and his cult followers, who assaulted Congress while Jordan was there. And Republicans aren’t the least bit disturbed by Trump’s continuous fomenting of violence, such as his warning that there would be “death and destruction” were he to be indicted. And of course, Fox News is on fully board with these sort of incitements. In fact, they are disseminating and magnifying them.

  1. Lying ass Gym Jordon must think that TUMP can commit all the crimes he wants to and the Fascist/Nazi GQP can just ”ignore” them. President Biden spits on a sidewalk and will get the death penalty… that is just they way their twisted, deluded, diseased brains work.. I am totally sick and tired of these incompetent, criminal, corrupt low life bastards and the stupid, ignorant, uneducated, insane people that vote for them too……i can only hope that the orange Baboon is arrested and put in prison for the rest of his useless life. The entire MAGAT, Fascist, GQP needs to go to prison too for enabling this fat blob of shit, TUMP.. Lindsay Graham was crying about TUMP being indicted and then begging their deluded followers for donations to TUMP….. lock his panty waist ass up too, and take his lacy panties away from him and make him wear burlap underwear…. i hate and despise his crybaby ass too. I have never seen such misfits in a Government of a large nation like the United States in my life. The entire GQP is nothing but a large corrupt organization of criminals that have become domestic terrorists. Why do we have to put up with this with this criminal behavior in our government??? It’s a shame and disgrace for this to be happening here.. I am NOT staying here in the USA if they take over in 2024, i am NOT going to put up with this, Canada, here i come!!, they do not put up with this crap in their government.. The United States will become a dystopian hell hole if these fascist GQP barbarians take over and many millions will die, (including myself, if
    stay in the USA) because of these evil monsters. It has to be a ”must win” effort in 2024 for Democrats to save our nation and democracy… if we lose, the United States as we know it now, will be long lost and not exist any longer.

  2. Did anyone else notice that photos of Jim Jordan seem to reveal that he has no upper teeth? I think Jordan is on a power trip He represemts district 4 in Ohio, a few miles from north of Columbus to south of Cleveland. And Kevin McCarthy appointed him to chair of the House Judiciary Committee Whoopie !! He thinks he runs the city, state, and federal branches of the US government And, naturally all of his efforts will continue to be geared to the benefit of the GOP.

    • I must go back and look at those photos of Gym Jordan with NO upper teeth…. Judy, when i read that sentence about Jordan having no upper teeth, i swear i laughed until tears were rolling down my cheek.. Every time i look at a photo of anyone that has upper front teeth missing, i can’t help but to burst out laughing. I don’t have a clue to why i laugh so hard unless it’s because when my 2 oldest sons were little they would laugh out loud at the guy on the TV show, ”The A team” was dressed like an old woman with a front tooth missing, I can only imagine how much i would laugh if TUMP or Marjorie Traitor Goon had front upper teeth missing. Is Akron in Jordan’s district?? i think Akron has the NFL Hall of Fame thing in it.. i would like to visit that NFL hall of fame sometime in the future..

  3. No, Akron is in the 15th district represented by Democrat Emilia Sykes Ohio is divided into 15 districts, each a few miles The fact that Jim Jordan represents district 4 gives him the impression as evidenced by his behavior that he runs it all

    • Gym Jordan seems like the type that would think he runs everything, that is typical behavior for the Rethugs…. just look at that female GOON from here in Georgia, she even thinks she is going to be vice President in 2024. Just the thought of MT GOON in that position makes me want to vomit..
