A committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has turned its attention to Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.
The Select Committee sent a letter to the Urbana Republican on Wednesday requesting a meeting to discuss his conversations with former President Donald Trump that day. Jordan, a close ally of Trump, has come under a microscope in recent weeks as the committee probes who played a role in efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
“We understand that you had at least one and possibly multiple communications with President Trump on January 6th,” wrote U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the committee. “We would like to discuss each such communication with you in detail.”
