Appearing on CNN while the rest of the country was celebrating July 4th, a former wrestler who has come forward with tales of sexual abuse by an Ohio State University doctor told CNN host Brooke Baldwin that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) witnessed the doctor commit “lewd acts while showering with athletes when the lawmaker served as a assistant wrestling coach at the school.

According to Mike DiSabato, who has gone public with the accusations that date back to a period between the late 70’s and the 90’s, knowledge about the alleged groping and attacks on athletes by Dr. Richard Strauss,was common knowledge within the locker room.

Detailing what happened him when he was just 14 and was attended to by Dr. Strauss who visited his high school’s wrestling program, DiSabato mentioned the facilities at the university that caused athletes to have to shower with coaches and the doctor.

“These conversations were not individual conversations,” Di Sabato recalled. “They were conversations with a group of athletes who were complaining on a regular basis, not only about Dr. Strauss but the conditions within the hall that forced us to take showers with, not only Dr. Strauss, but other university faculty members and professors who had access to our shower facility that led to lewd acts, masturbation, excessive soaping of the groin area.”

“And Dr. Strauss took a lot of showers and soaped himself a lot,” he added. “When you look at the definition of sexual abuse and sexual assault — and Jim Jordan went on record saying he knew about the facilities, he took showers with us. He saw Dr. Strauss and others perform these acts in front of us.”

Asked whether he had been in contact with Jordan before going public, DiSabato claimed that he had exchanged messages with the conservative lawmaker “didn’t deny what was happening, and he said he wanted to be left out of it.”

Ex-GOP senator hammers lawmakers quaking in their boots out of fear of Trump: ‘Why are you there?’

Published

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday morning, retired Sen. William Cohen (R-ME) hammered members of his own party still sitting in the Senate who refuse to take on Donald Trump, saying they are failing the country and themselves by standing by in fear.

Speaking with CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto, Cohen said kowtowing to the president is nothing new, but has grown worse over the past ten years.

"Some of it has to do with external pressures, that of social media, talk radio, specific channels that have a particular view and then hammer that view home to the constituents who then pressure the members of Congress," he explained. "But you have to ask yourself: Why are you a senator? Why are you there? Are you acting out of sheer fear that if you speak up and take a position that's controversial you'll be punished?"

CNN’s Toobin unleashes hell on Trump’s ‘outrageous’ attacks on Stone jury

Published

On CNN Wednesday, chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin laid into President Donald Trump for his ongoing public attacks on the jurors who convicted his former campaign strategist and friend Roger Stone. Trump and his allies have been arguing that the verdict is invalid because the jury forewoman had a Twitter account in which she criticized the president.

"To be honest, I don't know what Judge Jackson is going to do. I don't really know how significant these statements are. So I wouldn't make a prediction about what she's going to do about the new trial situation," said Toobin. "But as for what the president said, it is so outrageous to attack jurors. I mean, these are ultimately private figures. They didn't volunteer. The judges, you know, need jurors. The legal system needs jurors. And the idea that the president would single out jurors repeatedly for criticism..."
