GOP Recruits Bulldog to Lead Impeachment Hearings

House Republicans have appointed Congressman Jim Jordan to serve on the Intelligence Committee, so the aggressive Trump supporter has the chance to participate in next week’s public impeachment hearings.

Jordan is the Ranking Member on the House Oversight Committee.

Fox News’ Brooke Singman reports:
 

Jordan, R-Ohio, replaces Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Ark., who temporarily resigned from his post on the panel Friday.

“Jim Jordan has been on the front lines in the fight for fairness and truth. His addition will ensure more accountability and transparency in this sham process,” House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement on Friday.

Under current terms, Jordan, as the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, has been in the room for most closed-door depositions. Because he is not a member of the Intelligence Committee, though, the Ohio Republican cannot ask questions.

“In Speaker Pelosi’s House, those responsibilities have fallen victim to partisan witch hunts,” McCarthy said. “The typically venerable Intelligence Committee has now become the partisan Impeachment Committee.”

Crawford will rejoin the committee following the impeachment inquiry.
