The testimony offered to the Committee was not second-hand or third-hand. It came from an aide of Mark Meadows, who was at the meetings.
There is now evidence that Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz and other House Republicans were working with the Trump administration on a plot to overturn the election.
Jordan seemed terrified that the Committee might get his information. It is now known that he was hiding more than phone calls with Trump. Jim Jordan and House Republicans were involved in planning the coup.
