‘A boldface lie’: Former OSU wrestler says Jim Jordan still isn’t telling the truth about his knowledge of sexual abuse

Published

on

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” with host Alisyn Camerota, former Ohio State University wrestler Adam DiSabato continued to press his case against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) after telling an Ohio House Civil Justice Committee that the Republican lawmaker covered up sexual assault while he was a OSU wrestling coach.

During his appearance, DiSabato revealed more details about his phone call from Jordan where he claimed the lawmaker begged and pleaded with him, building on his comments that “Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling… begging me to go against my brother.”

“He was begging me to go against my brother’s testimony, basically and come out with a statement. So I just listened to him and expressed I didn’t know what my brother was — his motives,” DiSabato explained. “I said I can’t really give you an answer right now. I’m in the middle of something and I said let me talk to my family and that was that. I kind of just brushed him off, you know, and that was the conversation.”

Asked about a statement from Jordan’s spokesperson claiming, “Congressman Jordan would never ask anyone to do anything but tell the truth,” DiSabato knocked it down without pause.

“I think it’s a boldface lie, because someone went to him and told him about an exam to his face and it’s been documented,” he explained. “There were several people that went up to him, we all complained. It was an open discussion in the locker room around anywhere we were at. But mostly when the physicals came around every year because, you know, it was a problem.”

Trump is doing Putin’s bidding by ‘spreading misinformation’ about new Russian election meddling report: Ex-NSC official

Appearing on CNN on Saturday morning, former National Security Council official Samantha Vinograd stated that Donald Trump attacks on a new U.S. intelligence report showing ten Russians are already meddling in the 2020 election is exactly what Russian President Vladimir Putin would want him to do.

Speaking with hosts Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul, Vinograd accused Trump of spreading misinformation because it helps his re-election chances.

"The key question, though, is on the misinformation and disinformation front," Vinobrad explained. "Christi, you don't fight a Russian campaign with misinformation about the campaign. President Trump calling it a Democratic hoax is exactly what Putin is hoping for from this president."

What election? This is a civil war to stop Trump

Published

In what amounted to a casual aside at his rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday night, Donald Trump drew the battle lines in this election as clearly as I've heard them drawn yet. Facing another of his virtually all-white audience in the city that is headquarters to multiple fundamentalist sects and several Christian megachurches, Trump waved his arms and asked, "By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year?" The crowd jeered loudly. "Did you see it? And the winner is … a movie from South Korea! What the hell was that all about?" he went on with undisguised disgust. "We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them best movie of the year? Was it good? I don't know. Let's get 'Gone With the Wind'! Can we get 'Gone With the Wind' back, please?"
