“New Lawsuit Says GOP Rep. Jim Jordan Was Aware of Ohio State Team Doctor’s Sexual Misconduct”
- Editor’s note: And this man is going to be the GOP “pit-bull” in the Impeachment Hearings? Isn’t his credibility already compromised?
“In a federal lawsuit filed Thursday (Nov. 7), a referee alleges that Ohio State wrestling coaches, including now Republican congressman Jim Jordan, were aware of the sexual misconduct of disgraced former Ohio State doctor Richard Strauss. The suit, the latest of more than a dozen suits filed against the university, says that Strauss masturbated in front of the referee, identified as John Doe 42 in court papers, in a shower following a wrestling match in 1994. The ref said he then alerted the team’s coaches, then–head coach Russ Hellickson and assistant Jim Jordan, about Strauss’ behavior, but they shrugged it off, saying: ‘Yeah, yeah, we know,'” by Elliott Hannon, Slate.

“U.S. Rep. Denny Heck says Ukraine inquiry depositions show ‘abuse of power’ by Trump”
“For months, Washington Rep. Denny Heck has had an inside view of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
“Heck, a Democrat representing Washington’s 10th Congressional District, including the Olympia area, serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which has been leading the probe, gathering testimony from witnesses who have provided evidence that Trump and associates pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

“From Nixon to Trump, the historical arc of presidential misconduct is deeply troubling”
“Since the early 1970s, the behavior of American presidents has worsened in alarming ways.”
- Editor’s note: Impeachment proceedings will have been filed against 4 Presidents as of today: Andrew Johnson, Nixon, Clinton and Trump. Nixon resigned before he could be formally impeached. I find amazing that within 45 years 1974-2019, I have been alive to witness the impeachment proceedings of three out of the four Presidents. This article exemplifies how Presidential misconduct has exponentially been amplified since Nixon.
“Only occasionally, and then without major threat to the public welfare, did administration officials thumb their noses at the law. That changed decisively in the 1970s,” by James M. Banner Jr., editor of “Presidential Misconduct: From George Washington to Today.” Read more
“Fox legal analyst Napolitano emerges as Trump critic”
“Napolitano, who joined Fox News in 1998, has emerged as one of Donald Trump’s bluntest critics on a network where the president expects to hear encouragement.
“Napolitano has defended an impeachment inquiry that many Trump supporters call unfair, noting it follows rules written by Republicans. He said the White House counsel’s arguments against the process were “profoundly misguided,” and described Trump’s since-withdrawn proposal to host a summit of world leaders at his Miami resort as a constitutional violation “about as direct and profound … as one could create.” He has questioned how seriously Trump takes his oath of office, and said he governs like a mafia don,” by David Bauder, AP Media Writer.
