Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) made the best use of his time when he made his opening statement at Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr. He followed Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) who had spent his time painting AG Barr as someone who sheepishly does whatever President Trump tells him to do.

Jordan was on fire the moment it was his turn and he didn’t waste a second. He jumped in before Nadler even finished introducing him and gave a whirlwind account of what he saw as the past DOJ administration’s attempt to keep President Trump out of office. He reminded the American public that Barack Obama spied on the opposition party and candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election and beyond.
But Barr has “defended law enforcement,” Jordan said, before showing a video of select clips where protests appeared violent and where journalists appeared to insist protests were peaceful even in the limited moments where they weren’t.

Jordan then defended AG Bill Barr for calling out the Obama Deep State spying on President Trump.
Jordan: “I want to thank you for defending law enforcement.”
Jordan then played video of the continuing violence and leftist rioting on the streets across America.
DEMOCRAT ENDORSED VIOLENCE IN AMERICA’s CITIES.
This was DEVASTATING!
He noted that the Democrats have “absolutely nothing” on Barr.
“And so all they got left is to attack the Attorney General who had the courage to state the truth right from the get-go,” Jordan said.
Nadler complained that the minority did not give them a 48-hour notice that they were going to be playing the video.
That’s what Nadler took from the devastation he just witnessed.
