Jim Jordan seems to be worried about what the January 6 Committee is doing. He is currently on the news to accuse the Commission of ‘lie’ about text messages he sent to Mark Meadows prior to the January 6 coup attempt. He describes Adam Schiff as having ‘ change’ your text by making only part of it publicly available – but the truth is, full text is worse than short.
Jordan, who was subpoenaed to speak to the Commission January 6, chose not to testify when his request to do so was merely a polite invitation. He said he has yet to receive a subpoena and will make his decision after reading it. Meanwhile, he is trying to simultaneously discredit the investigation through allegations of lying and keeping a distance from the text, which he insists he is not the author, but merely forwarding. to Trump’s chief of staff.
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) announced Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) “changed” Jordan’s documents to Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows:

Note that Jordan tries to stigmatize his colleagues for taping a conversation (he’s probably talking about Kevin McCarthy tapes, unless other recordings are available, probably his, which he knows has not been made public) to redirect the focus away from contents among the recordings, and emphasized that he was only forwarding the message, not composing it himself.
For what he calls ‘changing’ the text? This is really not new information and when CNN reported it, way back in December they mentioned that ‘shift’ is truncation, truncating the text to a shareable length and accidentally inserting a period that originally do not have.
If anything, this truncation makes the text (which wasn’t made public until Jordan announced it) less damaging – Schiff just shared that the text reads “On the 6th of June” January 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call for all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional because there are no electoral votes at all” and not is that it continues:
”—following instructions from founding father Alexander Hamilton and judicial prerogative. Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 78, “No law shall come into force.” The court in Hubbard v. Lowe reinforced this fact: ‘That an unconstitutional statute is not law at all, is a proposition that is no longer open for discussion.’ 226 F. 135, 137 (SDNY 1915), dismissal of appeal, 242 US 654 (1916). According to this rationale, an unconstitutionally appointed elector, like an unconstitutional statute, is not an elector at all. “
The supplementary text and rationale only add to the growing body of evidence of a massive pressure campaign to get Pence to waive his sworn duty – and Jordan, making an active effort to disassociate himself from the culture. version, seems to know it.
