Rep. Jim Jordan quickly switched to conspiracy theories when asked if he would subpoena Alvin Bragg.

Jordan said on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures when asked if he would subpoena Alvin Bragg:
Everything is on the table Maria, we’re going to speak to the other chairman and look at the answer, we just got his letter back, we’re checking, but we think this is, I think, maybe the most important thing we have think Bigger is about all of us. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the same week we learn that the IRS knocked on Matt Taibbi’s door while he is testifying in Congress, the same week that we learn that a district attorney is moving to a left wing District Attorney Is Soros Back District Attorney will go after the former President of the United States.
I mean, that’s the scary thing, they paid a foreigner, think about it, they paid a foreigner to put together a fake dossier to spy on President Trump’s campaign. The FTC sends letters to Twitter asking which journalists you’re speaking to, and then of course, when Matt Taibbi’s testimony before the IRS knocks on his door, and now an indictment against a former president, the guy who happens to be in every single one poll, it’s about all of us, it’s about prosecuting anyone who opposes the agenda of the left, the agenda of the establishment, and that’s maybe the scariest thing of all.
Jordan tried to get Trump supporters to protest. Trump’s defense attorneys are still trying to make his supporters feel connected to the charges and how the charges put them at risk. Rep. Jordan even used the word scary.
Jim Jordan knows that Bragg is never required to testify before the House of Representatives, and there is nothing the House of Representatives can do to compel him to testify because House Republicans have no oversight authority over a local attorney general.
Jordan doesn’t want to talk about something that even he probably knows will never happen, so he launched a slew of conspiracy theories and tried to escalate fear because Trump supporters don’t challenge the myth of the former’s policies Presidents protest power is shattered.
