In an interview on Friday with Fox News Digital, before his speech to the National Rifle Association, conservative hero Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) reaffirmed that he is “100% for President Trump” in the 2024 presidential election despite the legal challenges the left continues to smear him with.
In April, Jordan, who is the House Judiciary Chairman, subpoenaed former Manhattan DA prosecutor and Hillary Clinton lawyer, Mark Pomerantz for a deposition. Pomerantz, a former senior prosecutor on the Manhattan DA’s team investigating Trump, resigned in protest after District Attorney Alvin Bragg ended the investigation.
Bragg revived the investigation which culminated in charging President Trump with 34 felony counts. Read the indictment here.
Bragg filed a lawsuit against Jordan in an effort to block Congress from ‘interfering’ in his case against President Donald Trump.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the Southern District of New York, accuses Jordan of a “brazen and unconstitutional attack” on his criminal case against Trump.
Bragg’s lawsuit seeks to bar Jordan’s committee from enforcing a subpoena issued to Pomerantz.
Speaking with Fox News Digital ahead of his speech to the National Rifle Association convention, Jordan argued Trump was the only president to do what he said he was going to do, and did so successfully despite the entire political establishment standing against him.
“No one has demonstrated that they will do what they said and get things done like he did, and he did it with everyone in that town against him. And that’s what I still respect about President Trump, and I’m for him all the way,” Jordan said when asked about the increasingly heated Republican presidential primary contest.
Alongside his certainty over Trump’s candidacy, Jordan stressed he “liked” all the current and potential candidates, and that he was “friends” with each of them.
“I just talked to Vice President Pence. Great guy … Governor DeSantis, a great guy. When we formed the Freedom Caucus, there were nine of us. He was one of the nine. But I am 100% for President Trump,” he said.
Jordan has been one of Trump’s staunchest defenders against the felony falsification of business records charges brought against him by New York district attorney Alvin Bragg last week, and has launched an inquiry into the latter over his efforts targeting the former president, which includes subpoenas to provide documents pertaining to the investigation to the House Judiciary Committee later this month.
