On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," anchor Kate Bolduan and former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean discussed the new push by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack to get information from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

"One key question with Jordan, really ever since January 6th, has been what were his communications with Donald Trump on January 6th?" said Bolduan. "Because the question has become all the more interesting as Jordan himself has tripped over answering it multiple times. Let me play this for you."

"I have talked to the president so many — I can't remember all the days I have talked to him but I certainly talked to the president. I spoke with him that day after? I think after? I don't know if I spoke with him in the morning or not. I — I just don't know," said Jordan in the first clip.

"Of course I talked to the president. I talked to him that day. I have been clear about that. I don't recall the number of times," said Jordan in the second clip.

"John, what do you do with that?" asked Bolduan.

"Well, that's not the normal Jordan answer," said Dean. "He is pretty crisp and pretty clear on most of his answers. His mind is probably trying to calculate, well, what kind of exposure do I have at this stage in answering that question? And I think he does have exposure because of the texts he forwarded the day before. I'll tell you, if they ever start pursuing conspiracy charges, he walked right into a conspiracy to obstruct Congress. To — was it a seditious conspiracy? May — may well have been. So I think he knows he has exposure, and if he ever is in front of that committee, he will probably have to take the [Fifth Amendment]. That's probably another reason he doesn't want to go."
