GOP's Jim Jordan outraged after DOJ refuses to investigate bizarre Italian space laser election fraud theory
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is outraged over a new conspiracy theory he says the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) refuses to investigate. According to Above the Law, Jordan actually believes Italian laser satellites swayed the 2020 presidential election in President Joe Biden's favor.
"That is a problem," the Ohio congressman said on Wednesday during the House Oversight Committee hearing for Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. He referred to a cache of emails that highlighted the Trump White House's mounting pressure on the DOJ to interfere with the presidential election.

"When the chief of staff to the president of the United States asks someone in the executive branch to do something, and they basically give him the finger, I think that's the problem we should be looking into."
The publication reports that the "bats--t" conspiracy theory "involves Barack Obama amassing a secret $400 million war chest, then cahootsing with former Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to disrupt vote tabulation in key swing states using Italian military satellites." Above the Law writes, "somehow this was all coordinated at the US Embassy in Rome, according to Brad Johnson, a self-described retired 'CIA Station Chief' and current Epoch Times columnist."
At the time, Meadows had forwarded acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen a YouTube video titled, "Rome, Satellites, Servers: an Update." When YouTube deleted the conspiracy theory video, loyal Trump supporters like Meadows and Jordan automatically believed it was the video-sharing platform's way of attempting to bury the truth. But the truth is that the video contained a litany of falsehoods.
"Wow, lotta pressure there," Jordan said sarcastically. "Every chief of staff I bet for every single one of us sends the same kind of emails and letters every day. You get constituents, if people call you, you send it to the agency: 'Can you look into this?'"
