Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has been one of President Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters in Congress, and now he’s getting a promotion to be the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, according to Politico:

“During a closed-door meeting on Thursday, the GOP Steering Committee overwhelmingly selected Jordan to be the ranking member on the panel, according to multiple people with knowledge of the internal vote. Jordan will replace Rep. Doug Collins, who recently announced a Georgia Senate bid and is required to step down from the top post under GOP conference rules.”

Jordan was most recently a member of Trump’s defense team during the Senate impeachment trial where the president was charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The trail ended with Trump’s acquittal this week.

The very idea of Jordan — who has been accused of turning a blind eye to the alleged sexual assault of athletes while he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University — serving as the ranking Republican on the judiciary committee was not well-received on Twitter, where the Ohio congressman was lambasted with scorn and outright mockery.
