WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Monday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, one of the outgoing president's fiercest GOP allies.
The White House in a statement noted Jordan "led the effort to confront the impeachment witch hunt" last year.
Last week, Trump awarded the Medal of Freedom to another Republican ally, Rep. Devin Nunes of California, in a private ceremony.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why it was holding the ceremony without the media present.
