Deep State Hit Job On Jim Jordan Fails

According to a new Economist/YouGov poll the political hit cooked-up against Jim Jordan hasn’t made a dent in his public profile. Jordan is still seen as a top contender for Speaker of the House by 9 percent of Americans. That’s almost unchanged from last week, when 10 percent of respondents said they had a “very favorable” opinion of Jordan as a House leadership candidate reports the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call.

If one were to poll the Republican party’s conservative grassroots we think that Jordan’s numbers would have Jim Jordangone up substantially, judging by the reaction on social media and in the conservative press to the charges Jordan knew about a sexual abuse scandal while coaching at Ohio State and did nothing to protect the student athletes in his charge.

Our friend Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots nailed the specious nature of the charges in an op-ed for the Washington Times:

First, the credibility issue. One of Mr. Jordan’s accusers, Dunyasha Yetts, says, “I remember I had a thumb injury and went into Strauss’ office and he started pulling down my wrestling shorts I’m like, what the f– are you doing? And I went out and told Russ [Hellickson, the head coach at the time] and Jim what happened.”

But Mr. Yetts has a credibility problem. He served 18 months in prison for fraud.

Then there’s Mike DiSabato, one of the three former student athletes making the initial charges against Mr. Jordan, who, according to NBC News, says “the recent conviction of former Olympics gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar prompted him and other Ohio State athletes to come forward about Strauss.”

Dr. Larry Nassar’s conviction of sexual crimes against student athletes led Michigan State University to settle for $500 million.

Like Mr. Yetts, Mr. DiSabato has a credibility problem. He helped establish a memorial fund in honor of a former teammate, a U.S. Marine who was killed in combat in Iraq. The Marine’s widow accused Mr. DiSabato of misrepresenting his fund-raising efforts, and finally had to issue a cease and desist order against Mr. DiSabato.

Ms. Martin then went on to cite the recent statements of the other Ohio State wrestling coaches and athletes:

On the other hand, in addition to Mr. Jordan’s firm denial, there is the joint statement of six former Ohio State University wrestling coaches including former head coach Russ Hellickson. “What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong. We all worked on the wrestling coaching staff during Jim’s tenure at The Ohio State University. None of us saw or heard of abuse of OSU wrestlers.” There are also numerous statements from other students supporting Jordan’s denial.

That two creeps might be looking for a payday is no surprise given the millions properly paid-out for the documented abuse in the Penn State and women’s gymnastics sexual abuse scandals is no surprise, but the timing of this has interesting political angles as well.

Even more interestingly, guess who Jordan’s RINO political enemies in Ohio have chosen to lead the “investigation” into these unsubstantiated 30-year old charges?

Perkins Coie, the same law firm that commissioned the fake “dirty dossier” against President Trump and also represents the Democratic National Committee, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and paid Fusion GPS millions of dollars to compile the fake dossier.

And not only that, our friend Jordan Schachtel reports the T. Markus Funk who is the Perkins Coie point man for the smear operation against Jim Jordan served in Clinton Department of Justice under Pat Fitzgerald, and Fitzgerald is now James Comey's attorney, best friend and godfather to one of Comey’s children.

Talk about a conflict of interest.

The timing of these allegations, their specious nature and the focus on what Jim Jordan “should have known” smells to high heaven of a political hit by Jordan’s RINO enemies.  This is the lowest and vilest attack yet on a conservative seeking a House leadership post and it tells us the Swamp thinks Jordan is winning the race for Speaker.

We agree with Jenny Beth Martin’s take on Jim Jordan: “Mr. Jordan stands out in Washington for his strong moral convictions and his backbone of steel. He’s unafraid to take on a challenge when it’s the right thing to do.” The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Representative Jim Jordan to tell him in the face of these vile attacks he should redouble his campaign for Speaker.
