Trump ally Jim Jordan draws eye of U.S. House’s Capitol riot probe


The congressional committee probing the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday requested an interview with ardent Donald Trump supporter Jim Jordan, the second sitting U.S. representative drawn into the probe.

The House of Representatives Select Committee on Jan. 6 asked Jordan, a Republican, to disclose conversations he had with the former president on the day that Trump’s supporters attacked the Capitol, trying to stop Congress from formally certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.
