Rep. Jim Jordan: House impeachment vote won’t change anything


♪ BRIAN: LONG ANTICIPATED, HE IS FINALLY HERE, CONGRESSMAN JIM JORDAN, MEMBER OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, RANKING MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE AND MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME, CONGRESSMAN, THINGS ARE CHANGING SO QUICKLY WITH THE CLOSED DOOR SESSIONS WITH THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. WHERE YOU GUYS CAN’T ASK ANY QUESTIONS AND THE PRESIDENT CAN’T GET REPRESENTED. AND WE DON’T GET TRANSCRIPTS. AFTER THURSDAY’S VOTE, WHAT CHANGES?>>WELL, I DON’T THINK ANYTHING. AND TO YOUR LIST, BRIAN, IT’S ALSO ALL DONE IN SECRET IN A BUNKER IN THE BASEMENT OF THE CAPITAL. SO I DON’T THINK ANYTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE. AND FRANKLY, EVEN IF THEY TRIED TO CHANGE SOMETHING TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF DUE PROCESS, WE ARE ALL STILL GOING TO VOTE AGAINST THIS BECAUSE THIS IS SUCH A SHAM AND BEEN SUCH A SHAM FROM THE BEGINNING. SO, YEAH, I DON’T THINK — AND YOU CAN’T UNDO WHAT THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE. WE HAVE HAD THESE 8 DEPOSITIONS NOW. THEY HAVE BEEN LEAKING SELECTIVE PARTS OF IT. HAVEN’T BEEN FOLLOWING ANY TYPE OF BASIC DUE PROCESS. SO, YOU CAN’T UNDO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. I THINK THIS IS JUST ONE MORE KIND OF MAKE IT UP AS YOU GO ALONG EXAMPLE. AND IT’S ALL BEEN DONE IN SECRET WITH THESE SECRET LEAKS. SO IT’S A CONTINUATION OF THE — THEY ARE GOING TO DRESS IT UP A LITTLE BIT. AINSLEY: GO ON THE RECORD. SHE IS CALLING IT A FORMALIZED IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. IT ESTABLISHES PROCEDURE AND AFFIRMS INVESTIGATIONS.>>YEAH. I THINK THE REASON SHE IS GOING TO HAVE THIS VOTE BECAUSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT IS SHAM. THEY UNDERSTAND IT ISN’T FAIR. THE IDEA THAT THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T GET COUNSEL IN THE ROOM. THE PEOPLE FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT DON’T GET AGENCY COUNSEL. WE CAN’T SEE THE TRANSCRIPT UNLESS WE MAKE A SPECIAL APPOINTMENT AND SOME DEMOCRATS IN THE ROOM AS YOU ARE REVIEWING THE TRANSCRIPT. AND THEY GET TO SELECTIVELY LEAK THINGS BECAUSE WE FOLLOW THE RULES AND THEY DON’T. THIS IS ALL A RIDICULOUS UNFAIR AND PARTISAN PROCESS. AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THROUGH IT. SO I THINK THE SPEAKER IS GOING TO TRY TO DRESS IT UP A LITTLE BIT. PUT A LITTLE LIPSTICK ON THE PIG AS THEY SAY AND INTEREST THIS VOTE ON THURSDAY. IT’S NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING. I THINK YOU WILL SEE EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTE AGAINST IT. STEVE: THIS IS VINDICATION. THEY SAYING LEGITIMATE WE NEED TO HAVE THE VOTE ON IT. WITH THE VOTE, THAT’S GOING TO PUT SOME OF YOUR COLLEAGUES ACROSS THE AISLE IN THE HOT SEAT BECAUSE THEY, ESSENTIALLY, WILL HAVE TO GO ON THE RECORD WITH THIS PROXY VOTE ABOUT TRUMP AND IMPEACHMENT AND NEXT NOVEMBER THAT MIGHT NOT BE GOOD FOR THEM.>>YEAH. THINK ABOUT NEXT NOVEMBER. THESE 31 DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESSIONAL SEATS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WON IN 2016. IF THEY VOTE FOR THIS NEXT FALL, LESS THAN 13 MONTHS FROM NOW, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WALK IN THE VOTING BOOTH, VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THEN THE NEXT DECISION THEY HAVE TO MAKE IS WHO DO I WANT TO SUPPORT FOR CONGRESS? AND THEY WILL BE THINKING I DO REALLY WANT TO VOTE FOR THE PERSON WHO JUST VOTED TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES 13 MONTHS BEFORE AN ELECTION BASED ON SOME ANONYMOUS WHISTLEBLOWER WITH NO FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE WHO HAD A BIAS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND WORKED WITH JOE BIDEN? I THINK THEY ARE GOING TO THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT THAT. WE WILL SEE. THEY ARE SO FAR DOWN THIS ROAD. I ASSUME THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR THIS AND CONTINUE THIS, AGAIN, THIS UNFAIR AND PARTISAN PROCESS. BRIAN: THE “WALL STREET JOURNAL” SAYS THIS VOTE SHOWS THAT THE CRITICS OF THE PROCESS ARE VINDICATED. BECAUSE NOW IT LOOKS LIKE THE PRESIDENT COULD BE GETTING DUE PROCESS BUT YOU ARE NOT OPTIMISTIC. SO WHAT’S GOING TO BE HAPPENING TODAY? LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALEXANDER VINMAN IS GOING TO BE COMING FORWARD. HE’S A MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL. AND HE WAS DIRECTOR FOR EUROPEAN AFFAIRS. AND HE IS UPSET BY TWO SEPARATE INCIDENTS WHICH HE COMPLAINED ABOUT, ONE IN EARLY JULY AND THE CALL ON JULY 25TH. FROM HIS PREPARED STATEMENTS, WHAT SHOULD WE KNOW FROM IT?>>WELL, AGAIN, REMEMBER, WE HAVE NOW HEARD FROM EIGHT WITNESSES. LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINMAN WILL COME IN TODAY. NONE OF THEM HAVE CHANGED THE FUNDAMENTAL FACTS. THE FUNDAMENTAL FACTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE WE HAVE SEEN THE CALL TRANSCRIPT. NO CONDITIONS PLACED IN THE CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT ZELENSKY. NO QUID PRO QUO. THE TWO PEOPLE ON THE CALL NAMELY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT ZELENSKY HAVE SAID NO PRESSURE NO, PUSHING WHATSOEVER. THE UKRAINIANS DIDN’T EVEN KNOW AID WAS WITHHELD AT THE TIME OF THE CALL. THE UKRAINIANS DID NOTHING TO GET THE AID TURNED BACK ON. NAMELY, THEY DIDN’T — PRESIDENT ZELENSKY DIDN’T DO A STATEMENT SAYING HE WAS GOING TO DO CERTAIN THINGS. THEY DIDN’T START INVESTIGATIONS TO GET THE AID TURNED BACK ON. THE AID WAS TURNED BACK ON BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES SENATORSY TELLING THE PRESIDENT LET’S TURN THE AID BACK ON AND DO. THIS NOTHINGS THAT CHANGED THE FUNDAMENTAL FACTS. THE ONE THING THAT IS CLEAR IS THIS IS BASED ON SOME ANONYMOUS WHISTLEBLOWER. AND THERE ARE 435 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND ONLY ONE MEMBER KNOWS WHO THAT WHISTLEBLOWER IS. AND JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, WHO THE PEOPLE ARE WHO FORMED THE BASIS OF THAT WHISTLEBLOWER’S COMPLAINT. THESE HANDFUL OF PEOPLE THAT THE WHISTLEBLOWER IDENTIFIED IN HIS COMPLAINT. THAT INDIVIDUAL IS ADAM SCHIFF. HOW IS THAT FAIR? THAT ONLY ADAM SCHIFF KNOW HOW THIS WHOLE THING STARTED. AND THE OTHER MEMBERS OF CONGRESS DON’T KNOW THAT. THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF AND KNOW HOW THIS WHOLE THING STARTED AND WHY ADAM SCHIFF IS THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS THAT INFORMATION. STEVE: THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE PRESIDENT SAYS ADAM SCHIFF SHOULD BE IMPEACHED. AINSLEY: HIS TWEET LAST NIGHT. STEVE: JIM JORDAN JOINING

  1. How about smearing an active duty decorated officer who was injured in battle to defend cadet bonesspurs. GOP and the Orange floater cannot go any lower. GOP, the orange floater and the five sycophants are HONESTY be dammed.

  2. Jordan says the Democrats don't follow the rules…that's laughable…we wouldn't be in this mess right now if the Republitards had followed the rules from the start

  3. Ask ADAM SCHIFF and Valerie Jarrett about the Standard Hotel, the 42 minutes 32 seconds phone call and the two listeners. Define Treason; Section 3 article 31, 42m 32s of TREASON VJ and AS

  4. What happened to the rule of Law !! This is Lawyers against Lawyers and the money just keeps rolling in ? Russia collision NOTHING!! 2 years and a billion dollars , and NOTHING found ? And here we go again

  5. This guy is a clown, he already said it doesn't matter, they are going to vote against it. If he were a man he would say we will see the statements and information. You people are a joke. Please don't think the rest of America is as stupid!

  6. The whistle blower was originally from the Ukraine 🇺🇦 that’s a movie 🎥 right there come on am form a cross the world and I see it

  7. I for one am sick of republicans saying its unfair. It's not unfair, it's treason. Arrest the lot of them and quit talking about it!

  8. I think that the situation is extremely danger to Trump – voting in High House over the impeachment may be controlled by dems in illegal way. They may bribe some senators, use blackmail against some of them, or eliminate some of them from voting on impeachment in some other, illegal way. I think that dems might have help from totalitarian states, like China, Russia, North Korea, Iran. Information necessary to blackmail might be prepared by these countries. Highly danger situation for the US!

  9. Seems to me he thinks he knows who the whistle blower is. He calls the guy a friend of bidens. Secondly he has asked more questions in the closed door depositions than any Republican. This is why I hate politicians. They lie. Jim Jordan is among the biggest liars in Washington. If he believed in what was going on, like he asserted, then why can't he just be honest about it?

  10. Jim Jordan party over country anything to maintain power right Jim say do anything protect the liar in chief it is obvious to the common observer Trump is compromised

  11. The Dems are scrambling with anything they can albeit legit or NOT to protect the secrets of mad corruption, incredibly deep ties with criminal history's for all the decades they have been tangling a deep DEEP web of everything from pedophilia and lies and anti American sentiment

  12. I wonder how this hillbilly got elected, he is just or worst than Gaetz, another morron..If any one with brain look back they ask the most idiotic question in congress. How do they got elected (dumb and dummer 🤔 ¡!¡!¡!

  13. This whole process is only going to push our country top vote for trump again. Dems have completely lost their mind. I can't believe I ever considered myself democratic. This whole situation seems like scenes from a movie about corruption on the dems side. It seems as though they are trying to cover their butts again like when they were exposed in Benghazi

  14. It will be so entertaining to watch all the deranged liberal hypocrites blow their tops when Trump is reelected and when Pelosi, Waters and the chimpanzee odd squad is taken out of office.

  15. I don't get how stupid people are. Why can't you all see that Trump is behind the "leaked" information and is being the master behind the scenes. If you want the truth, it's Trump creating and designing the outcome. Trump is manipulating the libs to his own ends.
