While not surprised, I am disappointed that The Lima News editorial board, in its July 22 “Our View,” denigrated Nancy Pelosi’s rejection of Jim Jordan serving on the Jan. 6 committee. Jordan has made no secret of his loyalty to Trump, and support for Trump’s postulation, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters.”
Pelosi’s boot of Jordan was for the purpose of rejecting Jordan’s unfettered, bellicose and anarchistic disruptions furthering dysfunctional governance which has become the GOP’s modus-operandi, having in large part become a gang of liars and thieves unwilling to let the chips of truth fall where they may. It is McCarthy who, likely at the direction of Trump, recently poisoned the water.
Jim Jordan on the House Jan. 6 investigating committee is like having Bonnie as judge in Clyde’s trial.
