Jim Jordan calls January 6th attack 'Democrat Obsession' and says he won't testify

From Newsweek | Politics by Ewan Palmer

Ohio congressman Jim Jordan has said he won't voluntarily cooperate with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol, describing the "Democrat obsession" as the latest of the "partisan witch hunts."

The Republican, who represents Ohio's 4th congressional district, wrote in a letter to committee chair rep. Bennie Thompson that the inquiry into the January 6 riot amounts to an "unprecedented and inappropriate demand to examine the basis for a colleague's decision on a particular matter pending" before the House of Representatives.
