WASHINGTON, D. C. — Champaign County GOP Rep. Jim Jordan made a contentious appearance before the House Rules Committee on Wednesday, saying he couldn’t recall how many times he spoke with former President Donald Trump as his supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol, although he definitely spoke with Trump after the riot.

Jordan made his remarks during a session where he and other Republicans argued against a resolution that would hold former Trump advisor and podcast host Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify before the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol. The House of Representatives has scheduled the contempt vote for Thursday.
