There Is Karma As GOP US Rep Jim Jordan Attacks “Rule Of Law,” FBI, DOJ

REP. JIM JORDAN

The GOP US Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, as a member of the US House “Freedom Caucus” and the US House Judiciary Committee, has developed a reputation for his aggressive style in defending his standard bearer President Donald Trump. For example, he didn’t hesitate to act unhinged, disrespectful and abusive in his June 2018 questioning of the FBI Director Christopher Wray and the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is in charge of the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe being led by the  Special Counsel Robert Mueller III.

Rep. Jordan along with his fellow republican colleagues on the US House Judiciary Committee have been working overtime in attacking the FBI and the DOJ in an attempt to discredit whatever work product they might produce which would portray President Trump in a negative way, facts and evidence be damned.

The below video is an example of their efforts:

But it looks like Rep. Jordan will be facing his own legal issues…

On July 3, 2018, John Amato of Crooks and Liars penned the following report, “Rep. Jim Jordan Accused Of Covering Up Sexual Assaults As Wrestling Coach At Ohio State”

Excerpts:

“One of Trump’s favorite henchmen in the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Jim Jordan is now being accused by former wrestlers who he coached at Ohio State for failing to stop a team doctor from sexually abusing them in the 90’s.”

“If you can’t protect your own players from a disgusting team doctor, WTF are you good for?”

NBC News breaks this story.

“Three former wrestlers told NBC News that it was common knowledge that Strauss showered regularly with the students and inappropriately touched them during appointments, and said it would have been impossible for Jordan to be unaware; one wrestler said he told Jordan directly about the abuse.”

“Rep. Jordan has denied knowing anything about this, but one of his former wrestlers, Mike DiSabato, whose allegations kicked off the investigations called Jordan a “liar.”

“I considered Jim Jordan a friend,” DiSabato said. “But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn’t know what was going on.”

“Not only is he being called a liar, but DiSabato informed him that he was going public this year and Jordan asked him to keep his name out of it.”

“A wrestler named Dunyasha Yetts, who has a criminal past told NBC News that he and others informed Rep. Jordan about the abusing doctor.”

Another, who asked to not be named was perplexed that Jordan would deny knowing anything now.

“I love Jimmy to death,” the ex-wrestler said. “It was a head-scratcher to me why he would say he didn’t know anything. Doc used to take showers with the team even though he didn’t do any workouts, and everybody used to snicker about how you go into his office for a sore shoulder and he tells you to take your pants down.”

It’s not shocking for Jordan [allegedly] to now try and cover up what he knew then and why he did nothing to stop the sexual assault of young men under his care.

My question is why did he stay silent when his players were screaming about a pervert in his own hen house?

  1. Gronda, I think many people will disappointed in Joe Paterno for failing to do anything about Jerry Sandusky. The movie with Al Pacino implies that Paterno had a singular focus on football, that he missed cues and discounted complaints.

    The Michigan State coaches and leaders exhibited a similar tendency to not heed cues and discount complaints about the gymnastics doctor. In the UK, there was an elite football (soccer coach) that molested a significant number of boys over thirty years, yet no one acted.

    We do not know the whole story, but Jim Jordan would not be alone if he knew and chose to do nothing about the accusations. But, it is not ironic that a strident person accusing others of wrongdoing has a messy closet. We should not forget Speaker Dennis Hastert resigned over his own sexual misconduct with a boy on his team. He was a wrestling coach.

    • Dear Keith,

      I came across this problem of avoidance where peoples didn’t want to deal with a reality that is unpleasant in my Guardian Ad Litem days. It never ceased to amaze me how some folks prefer to put their heads in the sand while they pretend the house is not on fire.

      Jim Jordan had the well being of others at stake. There was real harm done to these young peoples but he turned his back on them. They trusted him. This was a major betrayal.

      Let’s see how Rep. Jordan fesses up like a man or does he shift blame or does he continue the denial game.

      I don’t wish what’s happening to him on anyone. This will be a tough time for him.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Gronda, there is probably a not inconsequential number of leaders that fill this void. In the case of Paterno, he was the one guy who had the clout to stop Sandusky. The Penn State president should have, but no one could match Paterno’s gravitas. Sadly, he may have known much earlier than reported.

        Then, there is the Catholic Church which practiced the art of deception to mask its pedophila priest problem for many decades and maybe centuries.

        Jordan must step up and not pull a Trump calling it fake news. By the way, we should define that action as a “Trump.” Keith

    • Dear Ravenhawks magazine,

      In this case Karma bit back. Rep. Jordan will have his hands full dealing with his past. Thanks a million times over for all your support and for this reblog.

      Hugs, Gronda
