The committee chairman, Democrat Bennie Thompson, sent a letter to Jordan, a staunch Trump ally, on Wednesday saying that The panel believes that Congressman spoke to Trump one or more times on January 6
“We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on January 6. We would like to discuss each of those communications with you in detail,” said Thompson.
Jordan’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Thompson assured that public information suggests that “you may also have information about meetings with White House officials and the then president in November and December 2020, and early January 2021, on the strategies to annul the results of the 2020 elections “
Separately, Jordan’s office confirmed last week that the Ohio Republican was one of the legislators whose text messages to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows were released by the committee.
