Jim Jordan is one of my absolute favorite members in Congress!
And he just went on record saying he thinks impeachment is dead in the water and will officially be over by next week.
“The American people are not tuning in,” Jordan said.
Exactly right Jim….
Because we have jobs!
And because we know it’s a farce!
Breitbart had more:
During a Friday interview with Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) sounded off on the Senate impeachment trial.
Jordan predicted the impeachment trial, which he noted nobody is tuning into, will end in the next week so Congress can get back to working for the American people.
“[T]hese facts are so strong for the president, I feel real confident that hopefully next week we’ll get this decision and get this thing over with — and get on to the business of the American people,” outlined Jordan.
Co-host Ed Henry asked, “So you think, bottom line, that this trial could be over with this time next week?”
“I do, I do,” Jordan replied. “Again, when you have them talking for this long and not seeming to move anyone — the American people don’t seem to be tuning into this as much as we might have anticipated. I think, again, it looks good for the president because these core arguments are all strong for him.”
He continued, “Those facts — the idea that we have the transcript, that President Zelensky and President Trump have repeatedly said there was no pressure, no pushage, no linkage of an investigation to the release of the dollars. The Ukrainians didn’t know aid was even held at the time of the call. And most importantly, they took no action to get the aid released.”
Here's what The Hill reported:
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), one of the members of Trump’s legal defense team, said he thinks the Senate impeachment trial will wrap up by late next week and that senators will go for a vote without witness testimony.
On an appearance on Fox News Friday morning, Jordan said he believes the Democrats won’t be able to convince the GOP-controlled Senate to bring in witnesses, meaning the trial will last only until Trump’s defense team is done making their case, which will likely be late next week.
“I feel real confident that hopefully next week we’ll get this decision and get this thing over with it and get on to the business of the American people,” Jordan said. “When you have [Democrats] talking for this long and not seeming to move anyone, the American people don’t seem to be tuning into this as much as we might have anticipated, I think it looks good for the president."
Jordan, a member of the House Intelligence and House Judiciary committees, was one of the president’s fiercest defenders during the House impeachment hearings. Both he and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), who also serves on both committees, were recruited to Trump’s legal defense team when proceedings moved to the upper chamber.
Democrats have been advocating for calling in new witnesses central to the July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky since the House impeachment hearings. The White House has denied several subpoenas from Congress, and earlier Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) saidcalling in other witnesses would “substantially prolong” the trial.
Jordan said if Democrats decide to bring in witnesses, the whistleblower whose complaint about the Ukraine call sparked the impeachment inquiry should testify too, a talking point Jordan and other Republicans have maintained since the House hearings.
“If they’re going to go down this road — I hope they don’t, but if they do, if Democrats insist on witnesses and they get a few Republicans to vote with them — I don’t think that’s going to happen, but if they go down that road, you have to go all the way down it and whistleblower should come and testify,” Jordan said. “I don’t think they should, I don’t think that will happen.”
