Rep. Jim Jordan denies any knowledge of sexual abuse or misconduct, eye-witnesses say he directly witnessed it


#183

Where did you note it? Do you keep a notebook?

Was Jordan accused of covering up sexual assault?


#185

I believe the doctor committed suicide, I could be wrong.

Either way this is not going away and it’s going to get big. Either it will blow up in the accuser faces or Jordan is going to be brought down with it…the lines in the sand have been drawn

Yes, Strauss committed suicide in 2005, just a handful of years after retiring.

And I highly doubt this is going away and/or blowing up in the victims faces. There are simply waaaaaaay too many that have already come forward for his to all be some big conspiracy. Over 150 victims and witnesses have already come forward and been interviewed by investigators.


#187

Naaa, the interwebs does a fine enough job of keeping note…


#188

I will take that under advisement! :rofl:

Him being silent on this is really not a good look at all. If he thinks this is just going away or that he won’t be put to task for it if its proved he knew and is now telling everyone he didn’t. We dont know many facts right now but every new article ends up being more damning than the last.

“I don’t believe them at all," Trump said of the allegations against Jordan. "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I’ve met since I’ve been in Washington. I believe him 100 percent. No question in my mind. I believe Jim Jordan 100 percent. He’s an outstanding man.”

Uh oh. Jordan is pretty well hosed now. Trump is calling every single named accuser a liar. This won’t end well for Jordan.


#192

Backing Jim Jordan without facts has gotta be one of the stupidest things trump has done! Wow, why not just leave this one alone…


#193

This doesn’t seem like a situation where deny, deny, deny will work.


#194

If Johnson ends up resigning over this, Trump will still be praising him as a very fine man, while blaming democrats and the press.


#195

The latest story is that Jordan never got the emails from the law firm because they sent it to an inactive account of his. Ok fine I can go with that. Still doesn’t explain why he didn’t answer the phone calls that haven’t been denied and why he didn’t respond to the calls.

The longer he stays silent. The worse off it’s going to get.

Why did Jordan think he could get away with lying about this? Guess he panicked.


"Calling Jordan “a close friend,” Dailey said he is a Republican and that he contributed to the powerful Ohio congressman’s first political campaign for state representative in 1994.

“What happened drove me out of the sport,” said Dailey, a married father of two who works as a fundraiser for an Ohio college. “So I was surprised to hear Jim say that he knew nothing about it."

“Jimmy’s a good guy,” Dailey added. “But to say that he had no knowledge of it, I would say that’s kind of hurtful.”

Also Thursday, Mark Coleman, another former wrestler and a former UFC world champion, told The Wall Street Journal that Jordan was aware of the abuse and had not taken action. “There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State,” said Coleman, who said he was Jordan’s roommate on several wrestling trips."

They did that with the Roy Moore accusers too…in fact, one had her home burned down after the election…not much coverage of that one…


#198

I’m glad to see that the #MeToo movement isn’t limited to women…but like women, the partisans are sure going to go full bore to smear them.


#199

Can you believe, just believe, that these people put out that they had the moral high ground just a short time ago?


#200

Couldn’t help it…Clinton had to be in here somewhere.


#201

Did they dress provocatively?


#202

Wait what???


#203

Yep…can’t remember which one tho…not sure if they ever caught anyone but it was arson.
