Chuck Todd took apart Jim Jordan’s rationale for his special select committee during an interview on Meet The Press.
Meet The Press’s Chuck Todd asked Jim Jordan, “You keep talking about this raid on Donald Trump. Nine months passed between the time the archives requested documents and the time they turned it over to Justice Department. 60 days passed before the subpoena was actually issued. It is important to note that Donald Trump was the only person who learned about the subpoena. This was not some sort of — you paint it as a picture of the FBI did this, this, and this within hours of each other when it was actually a year and a half of Donald Trump not complying with any of the requests from National Archives. It was a year and a quarter. This is not some sort of proof that somehow they’ve weaponized and are playing politics over here.
Jordan replied, “They raided Trump’s home. They haven’t raided Biden’s home.”
Todd was ready, “Because Biden didn’t defy a subpoena, congressman. He defied the subpoena. By the time he had 60 days to comply with the subpoena before they actually executed the search warrant.”

For the second week in a row,Chuck Todd stopped the Republican lies and distortions at Meet The Press.
The Meet The Press moderator has received a lot of justified criticism for letting Republicans off the hook for years. They have been able to spew lies and talking points unchallenged for years. However, Todd has stayed true to facts over the last few months and not allowed Republicans the chance to twist the classified documents story.
If the media continues to cover Jordan’s sham select committee in this way, it will go nowhere.
