Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has recently found himself in the hot-seat. The congressman has come under fire for allegedly having knowledge that a former team doctor sexually assaulted wrestlers on the team. Jordan was the assistant coach at Ohio State University at the time of the assault allegations. Jordan firmly denied the allegations, saying that if he’d known something, he’d have said something. Four of the former wrestlers on the team disagreed. One former wrestler even alleged to have emails he sent to Jordan in regards to the sexual abuse. The former students say Jordan did know of the claims and that he did absolutely nothing. Jordan has even been accused of conspiring to cover up the crimes.
Jordan did not stop at merely denying the claims, Jordan went on to say that this whole thing is a conspiracy against him to make him look bad. Jordan says the timing of the allegations is “suspect.” He claims that this conspiracy against him was put together after the Rosenstein hearings when Jordan grilled the FBI Deputy Director about the Mueller investigation and Peter Strok. Jordan made his claims on Fox News with host Brett Baier. Check out the interview below:
