As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday vigorously defended Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who is facing allegations that he ignored reports that a team doctor was sexually abusing college athletes while Jordan was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University (OSU) decades ago.

“Jim Jordan is a friend of mine. We haven’t always agreed with each other over the years, but I’ve always known Jim Jordan to be a man of honesty and a man of integrity,” Ryan told reporters on Wednesday.

Ryan also said that the bipartisan Ethics Committee had no jurisdiction to investigate Jordan under House rules because the alleged incidents occurred before the Ohio Republican was elected to Congress. Democrats have filed an ethics complaint against Jordan.

The article goes on to state the following:

Roughly a half-dozen former Ohio State wrestlers have come forward to accuse Jordan and other coaches of failing to protect them from sexual abuse at the hands of the team doctor, Richard Strauss, during the 1980s and ’90s.

Jordan, a leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, has vehemently denied knowing or seeing any sexual abuse while he coached at OSU, though he has said there was some “locker room” chatter about the doctor.

    Constant finger pointing… completely childish and exceptionally ignorant coming from the same group of adults over and over again. Wonder if they have ever heard the story of, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”…???
    Much of America is beginning to wake up and are rapidly becoming desensitized to this kind of bs from those that fail to use their own minds to think.
