It is always a little too cold in the pillared hall, 1100, in the house of representatives holds in these days of his Impeachment hearings. The back of the audience wrapped around some of the spectators in scarves. But Jim Jordan sits and took off the jacket, so as always, when he's grilling does what he obviously the most joy: witnesses. Toxic questions. To stand in front of his President.
The Republican representative from Ohio in the Impeachment investigation, Donald trump was the most eager defenders of the hatchet man, of the attack without any inhibitions, all the diplomats, to the witness stand, to bring to light in the Ukraine affair. A fighter in a shirt and tie, don't care about the etiquette.
And fight, the Jordan can be pretty good. As a young man in Ohio, he was a multiple Champion in wrestling, he won 150 matches and lost only one. Nevertheless, he has become an athlete, not a professional, but studied law and went into politics. However, it is the Sport that got him prepared to put his opponents in Washington to the Mat, he says. He works since 2006, when he was elected for the first Time in the Congress.
On a continuous loop on Fox
he Quickly positioned himself on the right edge of the group, in the Freedom Caucus, a group of ultra-conservative members of Parliament. He often lay down with the party leadership. Since trump is the choice of 55 sees-Year-old his opponent is, however, not in their own ranks, but only in the case of the Democrats. In the Impeachment hearings, this is shown particularly clearly.
On Friday, Jordan was given the opportunity to question the former US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who had been covered by Trumps environment with false allegations and then abruptly from your Post in the Ukraine. As Jordan had exceeded his speaking time, he was admonished by Adam Schiff, the democratic Chairman of the house intelligence Committee, said: "My patience is running out slowly." Jordan said bass: "Our patience with you is already running long." By hall, 1100, a murmur went. Later, Jordan stood in the Capitol in front of the cameras and called the impeachment a second Time as a "show trial".
There are statements such as these, the play loop at Trumps house channel Fox News in duration. His exchange with Bill Taylor, the U.S. envoy to Kiev, appeared as the first witness, was in the right network viral. All of the allegations, the rise of Taylor against Trump, would be based only on the hearsay, accused Jordan of him. He had never spoken of himself with the President, think to know, however, what have these driven, as he blocked the military aid for Kiev. "And you want to be the star witness?" In Jordan's reasoning for trump's behavior for good reasons: He had taken care of the corruption in the Ukraine.
Joker in the last Minute
Actually, the man the "New York Times should be called" a "Pitbull", at the hearings play no role. He is not a member of the intelligence Committee. In order to give him a place in the course of the Hearings, a switched to the Republicans at the last Minute in the Committee. From their point of view, it was worth it. No member of better embodies the strategy that Trumps allies taken: admit No wrongdoing. Not a foot wide to give in. The more the Impeachment investigation to a politically motivated event, the Democrats looks, the better it is for Trump.
In this calculus, the fact is likely to change that over the weekend new statements of employees of the White house were known, the trump's behavior towards Ukraine as "inappropriate" referred to. On Jordan's loyalty can rely on the President. If he had heard of the notorious liar Trump never lies, he was asked by CNN once, not once? "No," said Jordan: "I have."
