This is some unfortunate timing for Trump fave Gym Jordan. He's about to be appointed to the House Intelligence committee so he can attack the impeachment hearings from within, and now he's got to convince the public he is being ONCE AGAIN "lied about"? Resign, you nasty little twerp.
Let this sink in: there is way more credible evidence that Rep. Jim Jordan covered up a sexual abuse scandal at Ohio State than there is evidence Joe Biden did anything wrong related to Ukraine.

This sounds just like #JimJordan pattern. He shrugs off crimes committed right in front of this eyes. I don't doubt this is true of his inaction at @OhioState as well. #ResignJimJordan https://t.co/qoNkPCzxeR

Anything Jim Jordan has to say about the whistleblower is going to ring a little hallow coming from a man who protected a sexual predator and denied any knowledge of what was going on. He should resign now.
— Steve Redmond (@sjredmond) November 8, 2019
So between Duncan Hunter and Gym Jordan we have a pattern here. Democrats like Katie Hill and Al Franken resign to do the right thing, and the gutless gang of eunuchs in the @GOP hang on for dear life, no matter how wretched their actions were. Disgusting. #JimJordanKnew https://t.co/7CC9R9iWHC

They enticed people to donate with the promise of a breakfast w/Trump.

Remarkable that a lawyer for whistleblower sent WH a "cease and desist" letter for Pres Trump to stop calling for whistleblower to be identified and stop "rhetoric that may endanger" him or her.

Say it with me friends, it wasn’t a “shadow foreign policy”: It was a use & abuse of access to foreign leaders, official acts & public officials, for personal political gain. That’s not conducting US foreign policy, that’s corruptly executing a political strategy for a candidate.
