Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest defenders in Congress, urged Democrats this week to acquit the former president.
While Democrats have been presenting evidence all week pointing to Trump’s role in the January 6 insurrection, Jordan claims that the former president urged his supporters to “peacefully” storm the U.S. Capitol.
“The one line from the president’s speech that wasn’t in the Democrats’ video is the line that’s most important, and that’s where the president said, ‘Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,’” Jordan said during an appearance on Fox Business’ “Varney & Co.”
“They left that out, which I think kind of shows where the Democrats want to go with this and what they’ve been up to,” Jordan added.
