Jim Jordan helped begin the rebellion, now he is asking that Trump not be charged
Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) has spent months spreading Trump’s lies about the elections, but now he wants to bring the nation together by not indicting Trump.

Jordan said on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures:
First of all, what happened on Wednesday is a tragedy, everyone knows that. It’s wrong, how wrong could be. I hope the Democrats don’t go that route. We don’t know if they will. Let’s hope they don’t. 75 million Americans who supported the president have been labeled as deplorable people who eat in the olive garden. Remember what Peter Strzok said a few years ago, he could smell the Trump supporters here. Now the Democrats will try to remove the president from office just seven days before his departure.
I don’t see how that unites the country. I hope what happens to what Senator Graham said on the network on Friday night when he asked Vice President Joe Biden, President-elect Joe Biden, to give a speech to the country and said we shouldn’t pursue impeachment and we shouldn’t the 25th pursue change, let’s move the country together and go forward and come back to be America, the greatest nation of all time. We need to focus here.
Rep. Jordan told Trump not to admit. Jim Jordan was one of the House Republicans who voted to overthrow the election. Rep. Jordan met with Trump and conspired to prevent Joe Biden from taking office.
If Jordan really wanted to bring the country together, it would join the movement to indict and remove Trump. Anything else is an attempt to evade responsibility for the violence he instigated.
