WATCH: Analyst Blasts Jim Jordan As a ‘LIAR and a COWARD!’ Who Refused to Protect Kids From Predator
Jim Jordan, the audacious congressman from Ohio, the one that Trump had to highlight as the “NCAA champion” wrestler, is a man whose past is catching up with him. Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State for ten years while a team doctor sexually assaulted the young men on the team. Evidence is coming out that many athletes came to Jordan for help, and Jordan told athletes to keep quiet about the abuse.
Ohio attorney Richard Herman addressed the new allegations – that Jordan knew and assisted in covering it up – while on CNN this morning. Asked what might be ahead, Herman opened up on the most deserving of targets:
“Well, that’s just evidence of guilt,” said Herman. “How could he have not known? Seriously. He was a wrestling coach for about ten years at Ohio State when this animal doctor was doing this. You know, if you’re a wrestling coach, it’s like family with your wrestlers. This doctor was targeting the wrestling team. He spoke with the wrestlers. They spoke in the locker room. He shared a locker with the wrestlers. Everybody knew what what has going on at Ohio State. The wrestlers thought it was hazing. They weren’t sure what this was all about. Yet they complained, they told him. There are so many instances, Fred, of not only students but a referee going up to Jordan and telling him.”
When even a referee, someone from outside the university, is going to Jordan, it means everyone knew.
What is particularly sad is that Jordan wasn’t just “any” assistant coach. Jordan was a living legend at Ohio State, precisely because he was a national champion. That is undoubtedly why so many wrestlers came to him hoping that he would protect them. Jordan was one of the few in the Ohio State structure that had the standing to do something about it. Jordan had nothing to fear, he could have changed everything.
“And what did he do?” continued Herman. “This man filled with fake rage, who takes his jackets off and screams and yells but doesn’t say anything … sorry, he is from Ohio, but that’s what he does. Where is his rage now, Fred? Where is his rage now of what was going on at his institution? He’s a liar and a coward, Fred. I will say it to his face. He can call me anytime. A liar and a coward.”

That is exactly what Jordan is, a liar and a coward who failed to protect the very young men whom parents placed in his care. He failed. And because Jordan failed, because he wasn’t man enough, more young men endured more abuse. All because Jim Jordan, he of the “famous” outrage, couldn’t be bothered to lift a finger when real abuse was on the line.
“Of the 350 victims that have come forward as of now and the 1,500 acts of criminal assault on these young men, the deep pocket is the university,” added Herman. “What did they know? When did they know? The university commissioned an internal investigation and the investigation results found that the university knew what was going on. …. Ten years, Fred. It is not one or two cases. 350 students. He did nothing! He’s a coward.”
