Plaskett said on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes:
Because Jim Jordan is not an honest broker, as I said in a letter earlier this week. No matter being a colleague. And behave everywhere as if you were sharing information in the house.
They weren’t interested in sitting down and talking to us. They have kept very secret who they are dating. And when they release the information, they release it to the media in a way that is untruthful and doesn’t give the American people the full picture. So we need to make sure that we said we are the force of truth, and that we will continue to make sure that not only does the work that the American people sent us to Washington get done, but that it actually gets done is the case. The truth is pulled up every time they don’t tell the truth.
The first attempt by the truth squad was a very effective report, revealing that Jim Jordan’s whistleblowers are not whistleblowers.
Democrats seem to have learned a lot since 2016, when House Republicans were able to use their majority to attack and smear Hillary Clinton. The Democrats are ready for Jordan and they are fighting back. Rep. Jordan will not get away with injecting lies and disinformation into the media. One of the best ways to protect democracy is to bring the truth to the American people.
