House Republicans have just added some teeth to their impeachment defense team after the appointment of pitbull Congressman Jim Jordan to the Intelligence Committee.
In a late lineup change that is giving Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff nightmares, Jordan will replace Rep. Rick Crawford just in time for the nationally televised pre-Thanksgiving Deep State lynching of President Trump.
Rep. Jordan has been one of the president’s most ardent defenders and has been cultivating a reputation as a ferocious adversary who does not suffer fools nor does he have tolerance for Democrats and their malarkey.
I am appointing @Jim_Jordan to the Intelligence Committee—which has now become the Impeachment Committee—where he will continue fighting for fairness and truth. @RepRickCrawford has been an exemplary member of the committee and will rejoin it when this Democrat charade is over.

Via Stars And Stripes, “House Intelligence Committee’s GOP roster gets change-up for impeachment hearings”:
Oversight ranking member Jim Jordan will serve on the Intelligence Committee during public impeachment proceedings, temporarily replacing GOP Rep. Rick Crawford, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Friday.
The Ohio Republican has been leading in the closed-door impeachment inquiry depositions that have been conducted jointly by the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs panels. Under procedures the House passed Oct. 31, the Intelligence Committee will be the sole panel participating in the public hearings.
Since Jordan has been leading Republicans’ defense of President Donald Trump in the closed witness interviews, GOP leadership wants to ensure he has a role in the public questioning as well.
“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,” McCarthy said in a statement.
It was Jordan who mercilessly destroyed the hallowed special counsel Robert Mueller back in July when the avenger of the resistance was exposed as a doddering, senile wreck in what was a staggering blow to Schiff and Democrats.
St. Mueller will be remembered far differently in history after that nationally televised horsewhipping that he received at the hands of Jordan.
Now the Ohio congressman will be joining the committee just in time for the sequel to the failed Russian collusion hoax as Schiff and his co-conspirators have morphed it into the Ukraine quid pro quo scam.
Be sure to stock up on popcorn because this is going to be a helluva show and Jordan is guaranteed to be loaded for bear.
