BRET BAIER (HOST): So, what do you think the motivation is then?

REP. JIM JORDAN (R-OH): You would have to ask them, but I would tell, with you Mike DiSabato, Mike DiSabito has a vendetta against Ohio State. He lost a licensing agreement with Ohio State, he is -- he is out to get Ohio State. He has a vendetta against our family. He was arrested just five months ago, threatening Chris Spielman's lawyer and Chris Spielman -- he has got all kinds of lawsuits against him.

And what bothers me more than that, is the fact that CNN puts him on TV three times in one day with -- with -- I mean, if -- if they would have done their -- done their homework, instead of rushing to -- rushing to put someone on TV, who is -- who has had a criminal record, on all kinds of -- all kinds of lawsuits against him saying these kinds of false things, but and waited for, like, to get the real facts about this guy's background --

BAIER: OK, but you know there are others. You know it's not just him. Now, there are five.
