Trump to Award the Medal of Freedom to Jim Jordan; January 11, 2021

No, I have not made a mistake copying and pasting. No one proofread the document at the White House. It really is the same words run twice.

The bolding is mine.

STATEMENTS & RELEASES

President Donald J. Trump to Award the Medal of Freedom to Jim Jordan

Issued on: January 11, 2021

Today, President Donald J. Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jim Jordan. This prestigious award is the Nation’s highest civilian honor, which is awarded by the President to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.

In 1994, Jordan was elected to the Ohio State House of Representatives and 8 years later to the State Senate. For the past 14 years, he has served the people of Ohio’s 4th district. In 2007, Jordan was appointed to the House Oversight Committee. As a member of that Committee, he helped uncover a gun running program known as “Fast and Furious” that gave AK-47s to Mexican drug cartels. Jordan helped identify millions of dollars of wasteful spending in the last administration’s numerous Green Energy Programs. He also fought against the Justice Department program known as “Operation Chokepoint”—an early form of cancel culture and “de-platforming” directed at law-abiding gun owners.

In 2012, Jordan led the effort to unearth one of the worst scandals in the history of the Treasury Department. As a result of his investigation, the Treasury Department Inspector General and the Oversight Committee found that the IRS was systematically targeting conservative organizations. In 2016, Jordan worked with then-Representative Mike Pompeo to investigate and publish a report on the deadly attack against our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Moreover, he also worked to unmask the Russia hoax and take on Deep State corruption — confronting senior Justice Department officials for obstructing Congress and exposing the fraudulent origins of the Russia collusion lie. His work helped to unearth malfeasance at the highest levels of the United States Government.

At the beginning of last year, Jordan was named ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and led the effort to confront the impeachment witch hunt. He is an inspiration to freedom-loving Americans everywhere and has distinguished himself as one of the most consequential members of Congress of his generation.Today, President Donald J.

1. Gym Jordan is accused of turning a blind eye to the systematic rape and abuse

Of athletes at The Ohio State University for years. Multiple credible witnesses have alleged that Gym knew of the abuse and did nothing. If there is such a thing as justice in this broken Nazi infested country, an aggrieved victim of Gym’s complicity will take that medal of freedom and shove it so far up his hypocritical ass that it twinkles in his right wing eye.
There..... fixed it.

7. I thinking all of these tRump-awarded PMoF medals will lose most of their luster in a few years.

Even for Gym.

9. I didn't see where they were honoring him for what he allowed at Ohio State

Six former wrestlers say Rep. Jim Jordan knew about abusive OSU doctor
https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/06/politics/jordan-osu-wrestlers-strauss-invs/index.html

A former Ohio State wrestler accused Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) of repeatedly “crying” and “begging” him not to corroborate accounts of sexual abuse
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/jim-jordan-accused-of-begging-former-ohio-state-wrestler-not-to-support-reports-of-sexual-abuse/2020/02/12/395e7314-4ded-11ea-bf44-f5043eb3918a_story.html

There are plenty of testimonials identifying Jordan as knowing these students were getting sexually abused but he did nothing.

I'm surprised Trump isn't giving Epstein one posthumously
