Nadler Shuts Down Rep. Jim Jordan’s Call for School Board Subpoenas

( Last Wednesday the House Judiciary Committee unanimously decided to advance the Homicide Victims’ Families Rights Act, which was put forward by California Democratic congressman Rep. Eric Swalwell.

But in advancing the legislation, representatives refused to back Republican Rep. Jim Jordan’s resolution that would subpoena President Joe Biden’s administration officials as well as the leaders of the National School Boards Association to provide documentation and information about their claims of a “domestic terror” threat in school board meetings.

Jordan wrote to the far-left Rep. Jerry Nadler, a Democratic representative from New York and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. In it, he said that Attorney General Merrick Garland should be subpoenaed along with anybody with a connection to a recent communication between the federal government and the National School Boards Association about possible “terror” threats from parents concerned about the teaching of Critical Race Theory in schools.

Rep. Jordan wanted to know more about the Department of Justice’s alleged plans to “investigate and prosecute” anybody involved with protests at school boards.

In an opening statement, Jordan said that he would like to see the attorney general “back in front of this committee” to answer questions – but his demand went completely unanswered by Nadler.

It should come as no surprise, really. Nadler is the guy who claimed that Antifa and Black Lives Matter violence during the 2020 riots was nonexistent, after all.

Remember that? We do.


Under Jordan’s resolution, Garland would have been subpoenaed along with FBI Director Christopher Wray, various NSBA executives, and Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. It would have also required the handing over of various documents from the FBI, the NSBA, the Education Department, and the Justice Department.

Had the subpoenas been accepted, we would have found out significantly more about the federal government’s attitude towards parents who don’t want their children to be taught about critical race theory.

That’s presumably why Jordan’s resolution was entirely ignored…
