Jim Jordan rants about Adam Schiff when asked if he ignored wrestlers who said they were molested at OSU

Published

Rep. Jim Jordan reacted angrily this week after being asked about new allegations that he ignored reports of sexual impropriety by a team doctor during his tenure as a wrestling coach at Ohio State University.

Jordan’s role in the coverup of a sexual abuse scandal at Ohio State University in the 1990s returned to the spotlight this week when a wrestling referee claimed that he informed Jordan and other coaches of sexual misconduct by team doctor Richard Strauss, who was later found to have sexually abused at least 177 athletes during his tenure at OSU. The referee is now the second person who says they informed Jordan directly of allegations of misconduct against Strauss, who worked at OSU from 1979 to 1996.

In an interview with the Lima News, Jordan dismissed the referee’s allegation against him as “ridiculous,” and he said that anyone who has followed his political career knows that he’s not the type of person to ignore wrongdoing.

As examples, he cited his willingness to fight with prominent politicians and government officials who have been investigating President Donald Trump’s alleged wrongdoing.

“I’ve stood up against the IRS, stood up against the FBI, stood up against Adam Schiff, fought the Justice Department when the whole Trump-Russia thing — what they had done,” he said. “The idea I’m not going to defend our athletes when I think they’re being harmed is ridiculous.”

Maddow destroys ‘bad faith’ complaints about impeachment from Republican Trump supporters

Published

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky) but without making a coherent point about any of them.

Read the whole stream of consciousness rant to get a sense of what it was like:
