Congressman tears up “traitor” Jim Jordan on January 5th. Text: “Why is everyone surprised?”

Rep. Ruben Gallego (Democrat from Arizona) branded Rep. Jim Jordan as a “traitor to the Constitution” after the Ohio Republican confessed to sending a text on January 5 to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggesting then Vice President Mike Pence should terminate attestation of the 2020 elections.

“Listen, Jim Jordan is a traitor. He is a traitor to the United States Constitution. He has long been a traitor to the United States Constitution, and now it really is in the text, ”Gallego told MSNBC correspondent Laurence O’Donnell on Wednesday night’s Last Word.

“Why is anyone surprised?” Gallego asked and pointed to Jordan’s lies on the floor of his Jan 6 home about electoral fraud in states like Arizona.

“My biggest problem is that there are a lot of people who don’t take this seriously,” Gallego said. “The fact that there is now a slow-moving coup all over the country led by Jim Jordaens and others.”

Gallego described an insidious process in which, instead of people storming the Capitol to topple elections, supporters of former President Donald Trump’s “big lie” sought seats in the House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the role of the election administration so that they could “effectively overturn future elections”. “

“The coup continues,” he said.

The text set out the legal theory that Pence had the right to suspend the Electoral College vote count certification on January 6.

Jordan’s office said Joseph Schmitz, a conservative attorney and former foreign policy adviser for the 2016 Trump campaign, wrote a message and sent it to the congressman. Jordan then sent him to Meadows.
