Jim Jordan and his “weaponization of government” committee has been a mess. They haven’t revealed any of the great conspiracies they promised to, and their “whistleblowers” have been found out to be not whistleblowers but disgruntled partisans. Still, he presses on hoping to find something — anything that will vault him to “owning the libs” status.

At Thursday’s hearing, Florida representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz called out Jordan for blocking the written testimony from Democrats from those debunked whistleblowers. It turns out that they were nothing more than paid off plants who had nothing but conspiracy theories to offer.

This week, Jordan’s troubles got worse as the 2 witnesses he had appearing today have had their security clearances revoked. Overnight, the New York Times said of the revocation:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has revoked the security clearances of three agents who either took part in the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, or later expressed views about it that placed into question their “allegiance to the United States,” the bureau said on Wednesday in a letter to congressional investigators.

Two of those three agents were Jordan’s “star witnesses,” Marcus Allen and Stephen Friend.

Allen was found to have had “expressed sympathy for persons or organizations that advocate, threaten or use force or violence,” promoted conspiracy theories about the Jan. 6 violence, and misled a colleague about a Jan. 6 suspect.

Friend, meanwhile, was apparently punished after refusing to participate in the arrest of a Jan. 6 suspect. According to a Washington Post report, bureau investigators also concluded that Friend “presented a number of security concerns related to his personal conduct, handling of protected information and ‘use of information technology.’”

Still, Jordan refused to hand over their written statements to the committee, despite the rules stating that all members have equal access to all the testimony of witnesses.

“It’s my understanding that the minority in this committee under the rules is entitled to the same testimony, information, documents that the majority is entitled to,” Wasserman Schultz noted. “So I mean, I’m not aware that you’re able to withhold information from the minority.”

Shultz also pointed out that the agency itself does not recognize them as “whistleblowers.”

“Mr. Chairman, these individuals have been determined not to be whistleblowers,” Wasserman Shultz said. “These are not whistleblowers. They’ve been determined by the agency not to be whistleblowers. Are you deciding that they’re whistleblowers?”

Jim Jordan declared a “whistleblower” exception and then hastily moved on to avoid discussing it any further.

There is no exception in the committee rules and no power for the chairman to declare them as such. In fact, the only person who has labeled them as a “whistleblower” is their own attorney.

Jordan then began to praise the men, highlighting their service to the country and in some cases, military service. He called them heroes.

Rep. Stacey E. Plaskett (D-VI) questioned the implication that anyone in military service or public service could do no wrong.

She brought up the Air Force member in Massachusetts who was recently arrested for allegedly leaking classified documents and asked if he’s still a “hero.”

Plaskett didn’t stop there but went on to point out the blatant double standard and hypocrisy of the modern GOP. She brought up how Republicans wanted FBI agents fired for Carter Page’s FISA warrant, noting,  “But when the FBI investigates conservative Christian white men who are actually threatening violence, suddenly my Republican colleagues are rushing to defund the police,” Plaskett said.

She explained that when other FBI agents are talking about their political beliefs on their own time, like Peter Strzok did, they should be fired, but when it is their beliefs, everything is fine, saying — “when they’re espousing their political beliefs on the job when they’re not supposed to, it’s ok when it’s their (conservative) beliefs. But if it were somebody else, then a different set of rules would apply to them.”

She then pointed brought everything full circle back to when Jordan invented a reason to block the written statements from Democrats, and adding, “The rules don’t apply when it comes to the Republicans,”

“It’s all part and parcel of the Republicans’ attempt to make Americans distrust our rule of law so when 2024 comes around and should their candidate not win, more and more people will not believe the truth,” Plaskett said. “The truth matters. And hiding information and stating a lie over and over again does not make it true.”
