Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) was hit with a vicious smear campaign Tuesday by the swamp.
Rep. Jim Jordan has been hammering Rosenstein and the FBI over their corruption, Russia probe and Spygate.
The Ohio Congressman also just announced his House Speakership bid plans; he’s a Freedom Caucus founder and very popular with Trump supporters.
The swamp unleashed a smear campaign on Jordan Tuesday morning, accusing him of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse as Ohio State wrestling coach.
The law firm handling this case is none other than Perkins Coie; the same law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and paid for the fake Russia dossier.
Rep. Jim Jordan, the powerful Republican congressman from Ohio, is being accused by former wrestlers he coached more than two decades ago at Ohio State University of failing to stop the team doctor from molesting them and other students.
The university announced in April that it was investigating accusations that Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, abused team members when he was the team doctor from the mid-1970s to late 1990s.
Jordan, who was assistant wrestling coach at the university from 1986 to 1994, has repeatedly said he knew nothing of the abuse until former students began speaking out this spring. His denials, however, have been met with skepticism and anger from some former members of the wrestling team.
Three former wrestlers told NBC News that it was common knowledge that Strauss showered regularly with the students and inappropriately touched them during appointments, and said it would have been impossible for Jordan to be unaware; one wrestler said he told Jordan directly about the abuse.
Former head coach Russ Hellickson, Jordan’s mentor, said in a recent video — made by Mike DiSabato, a former wrestler — that Hellickson had told Strauss that he was being too “hands on” with students.
DiSabato, whose allegations against Strauss prompted Ohio State to open its investigation, called Jordan a “liar.”
“I considered Jim Jordan a friend,” DiSabato said. “But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn’t know what was going on.”
DiSabato said he reached out to Jordan this year, before going to the university, to tell Jordan that he planned to go public with his allegations. Jordan told him to “please leave me out of it,” DiSabato said. “He asked me not to get him involved.”
One of the accusers, Dunyasha Yetts, who wrestled at Ohio State in 1993 and 1994, served time for bilking investors out of $2 million and served 18 months in prison, said, “I am not a perfect person, but ask any of the wrestlers and they will tell you everybody knew about Doc,” reported NBC.
Another alleged victim of abuse admitted he never told Jim Jordan that Dr. Strauss abused him:
A former teammate of DiSabato’s who asked not to be identified said he never told Jordan directly that Strauss had abused him. But there is no way Jordan could have avoided the rumors “because it was all over the locker room.”
Jim Jordan’s spokesman responded:
After NBC News reached out to Jordan, the congressman’s spokesman repeated the denial.
“Congressman Jordan never saw any abuse, never heard about any abuse, and never had any abuse reported to him during his time as a coach at Ohio State,” his spokesman, Ian Fury, said in an email to NBC News.
Hillary’s favorite Deep State swamp law firm, Perkins Coie is handling this case.
In response to a series of questions from NBC, Ohio State emailed a statement saying that the law firm Perkins Coie was overseeing the probe into the Strauss allegations for the university. OSU said it has also reached out “to the Columbus Division of Police and the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for any potential criminal investigation.”
“To date, Perkins Coie has interviewed more than 150 former students and witnesses and is engaged in further investigative efforts,” the university said in the statement. “Ohio State has shared all additional information that has come to the attention of the university with the independent investigators whose work is ongoing.”
Trump supporters know better. We’ve seen this before.
Jim Jordan goes against the powerful interests at the FBI & deep state to expose them & hold them accountable for their crimes.
Now all of a sudden there is a concentrated smear campaign against him in a deliberate attempt to discredit his work?

Regarding recent allegations against Rep. Jim Jordan, this reeks of dirty tricks. Why did it take 20 years for someone to make this accusation? Could it be because Rep. Jordan is running for GOP House leadership?

The law firm handling the probe into abuse allegations at Ohio State and targeting Jim Jordan is none other than Perkins Coie.
Yes, the same Perkins Coie Hillary Clinton used during the 2016 election to stealth pay for her dirty, fake Russia dossier.
