Clarence Thomas' wife defends Jim Jordan in college sex abuse case

A Republican Congressman Is Accused of Ignoring Sexual Abuse. Now He's Attacking His Accusers.

A Republican Congressman Is Accused of Ignoring Sexual Abuse. Now He's Attacking His Accusers.

"There is a direct and irreconcilable conflict between the public statements made by seven former Ohio State student wrestlers that Rep. Jordan knew wrestling team members were being sexually abused by the team doctor, and Rep. Jordan's denial that he had any knowledge of the abuses", they write in the letter.

Strzok has become a focus of House Republicans after special counsel Robert Mueller removed him from the Russian Federation probe over questions of anti-Trump texts.

The family of a former Ohio State University team doctor accused by athletes of sexual misconduct says it is "shocked and saddened" by the allegations and is cooperating with the school's independent investigation.

In response to the wrestlers' claim that the doctor's abuse was discussed openly in the locker room, Jordan insisted that "conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse".

Instead, Jordan continued to fan conspiracy theories connecting the emergence of the charges to his aggressive questioning last month of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, the man many Trump supporters hold responsible for the Russian Federation investigation. Jordan has previously claimed he's being "bullied" by DiSabato. We all worked on the wrestling coaching staff during Jim's tenure at The Ohio State University. And then actually admitting that "Well you know maybe I heard it and it was just kind of locker room talk".

"It was expressed to me by one member that after Joe Paterno, you never want to go too deep in defending somebody, because you can have somebody who was just nearly seen as an otherworldly figure of integrity and then you find out that 'Wow, he really did know more than we thought he did".

"What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong", said the statement released by former head coach Russ Hellickson, and five former assistants. 'He asked me not to get him involved'.

Lawfirm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP says it has attempted to contact Jordan on behalf of the university, but he never responded.

Maybe we won’t get this opportunity again, says Gareth Southgate
Former England captain Steven Gerrard has urged them to seize the moment in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden.

He also argued that the man in question, the doctor who allegedly abused the wrestlers, is dead, "so this isn't even about prosecuting him", he said.

The university has hired an outside firm to investigate the charges, and the firm so far has interviewed more than 150 people. "I believe him 100 percent, no question in my mind", Trump told reporters on Friday.

"I support Jim Jordan", Massie tweeted on Sunday.

In one email, a former Ohio State wrestler's widow condemned DiSabato as "vindictive and manipulative", citing a dispute she had with him over a memorial fund set up in her husband's name.

OSU spokesman Chris Davey said that due to the ongoing investigation into the allegations against Strauss, he is unable to comment. He lost a licensing agreement with Ohio State.

The story doesn't seem to be going away, in any case, and Jordan isn't doing much to make it so. What bothers me the most is the? guys saying these things, I know they know the truth.

"Perkins Coie boasts a client roster that includes the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and several Democrat Members of Congress", he said in the statement. "The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry".
