Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) asked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) if he disavowed a tweet from the GOP House Judiciary Committee where he is the ranking member.
SWALWELL: Do you denounce your tweet praising Kanye West?
Jordan: This tweet was not our account and that tweet was deleted pic.twitter.com/78tN13cf7t

Swalwell asked Jordan if he denounced the tweet supporting Kanye WestThe Republican responded: “This tweet was not at our expense. This tweet has been removed.”
Jordan did not mention that the tweet had been on the Republican House Judiciary Committee account for 55 days.
Even in his answer to Swalwell, Rep. Jordan didn’t denounce Hitler-loving Kanye West.
Is it difficult for an elected Republican to say publicly that the Nazis are evil and that they don’t like the Nazis?
Alex Jones was able to do that, so it shouldn’t be difficult for the incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to say that the Nazis are evil and that he doesn’t support or like Hitler.
In a nine-second video, Jim Jordan gave the American people an overview of how he led the House Judiciary Committee, which did not bode well for the American people.
