( – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), asked to explain the cut above his eye, joked Sunday that he got between Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and a camera.

“Before we get going, the cut above your eye. You didn't get into a fistfight,” CBS host Margaret Brennan said.

“No,” Jordan told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “I got between Adam Schiff and a camera. How about that? 

“No, actually, it's somewhat embarrassing, but the door to the Intelligence Committee hearing room in the bunker in the basement where we've been doing these depositions, it opens, and it stays open all the time, and then it closes on its own,” the congressman said.

“I stepped out to say something to my colleague, Mr. Meadows. It started to close, and I didn't realize. I turned and bumped into the door,” Jordan said.

“So just so we clear that up right out of the gate,” Brennan said.
