Jim Jordan Tells Starnes He Doesn’t Want to Be Speaker of the House
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told national radio host Todd Starnes he doesn’t want to be Speaker of the House.
The Todd Starnes Show audience pushed for the rising conservative star from Ohio to replace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D), but Jordan said Friday he has other plans if Republicans take back the House in November.
“I don’t want that job,” Jordan said. “What I want to do…if we take it back, Lord willing, I get to be the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I’m going to do these investigations that need to be done.”
The “Do What You Said You Would Do” author explained he would investigate the border situation first. Then go after the Department of Justice for “weaponizing” the DOJ against moms and dads at school board meetings. Then finally, he would go after Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins on COVID misinformation and origins.
“So I want to do those investigations and I want to stand up and protect Americans’ First Amendment liberties, which are completely under assault now from the Left,” Jordan added.
Starnes pressed Jorand again, “But if your colleagues said, ‘You’re the guy, would you accept it?'”
“No, I don’t want that job…(Minority Leader) Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). is going to be the speaker if we take it back,” Jordan said, before laying out the GOP plan for winning the midterms.
