Moscow (eTruePolitics) – Vladimir Putin personally directed his government to reject a plea from beleaguered U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for political asylum in Russia, eTruePolitics has learned.

“It wasn’t a tough call,” said a source knowledgeable about the Kremlin’s thinking who described a video plea from a tearful Jordan as “weak and embarrassing.”

Jordan is expected to be a target of the House Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and is likely to be facing a long jail sentence for perjury and inciting a riot.

“It’s bad enough that Jordan’s personality is insufferable, ” said the  source. “But he sweats a lot and never wears a jacket. The smell is awful and President Putin is very sensitive about body odor. After Trump, Putin wasn’t going  to tolerate that again.”
