On Monday, MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) what he would’ve done if former President Barack Obama had done the things Donald Trump has done.
The Republican congressman had trouble answering the question and tried saying that Obama did do the things Trump has done.
“What if President Obama did all of the things President Trump has done?” Tur asked.
“He did!” Jordan insisted.
Tur then noted that Trump is constantly wanting the investigation into his ties with Russia to be shut down. She questioned Jordan:
“Don’t you want that investigation to be followed through if you are innocent?” Tur asked.
“Yes, sure, and the White House is clear about that,” Jordan claimed. “But at some point when does it end? It’s been almost a year that we’ve been talking about investigation into the Trump campaign and coordination with Russia—to date and not one bit of evidence suggests there was coordination, any type of collusion.”
“If the president feels so confidently that he is innocent and feel so confident that it will end well in his favor and if he wants the Mueller investigation to go on unimpeded, why is he tweeting what he’s tweeting?” she asked.
Jordan had no answer.
Tur then showed the Republican lawmaker his own tweets during Obama’s presidency.
“You have one set conclusion for when it is a Democrat in power and another for when it is a Republican,” she said.
