don't follow twitter....just what I saw....no idea who that is.
Yeah I saw he apparently tried to dox Jade. Jade is a burner account for someone on Twitter. Made the account a day or two after the allegations started flowing in and has been trying to get the "true truth" out ever since. There are rumors Jade is an affiliate of Iowa Football, but that rumor's suspect.

Who did he say Jade was?

Why is doxxing this Jade character worthy of pulling credentials? Immature, sure, but if this person is in some position of power why are they anonymous on twitter?

Wonder if this Jade cat would be willing to do an interview with the media? He and Robert T Green seem to be of similar character...

Probably only matters if Jade is in fact a member of the Iowa football staff. There is pretty good evidence already based on some of his posts, that he does have a connection of some sort to the program.

Rob Howe filed an FOIA request to gather the full 2018 report on racial discrimination within Iowa athletics. The report showed there were a multitude of problems within Iowa Football and some of those aligned directly with what these allegations said. Kirk was supposed to meet with some of the players involved in the report, however never met with them, which he claimed in his press conference a week ago as "dropping the ball".

National news ran with this story a few days ago, mentioning Kirk saying he had a "blind spot" for these issues was a lie due to him knowing about these issues via the report.
