Concussion Inc.’s Freedom of Information Act request for the visa and green card files on George Gibney – which is being assisted by Senator Dianne Feinstein – is at No. 127 on the queue, according to the search engine at the website of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The current head coaches at the North Jeffco Swim Team in Denver have softened their refusal to offer facts on George Gibney, who coached there in the late nineties shortly after fleeing Ireland — where he had been national team coach and where a government commission documented his many sex crimes against minor swimmers he supervised.
In an email today, North Jeffco’s senior group coach, Brett Stoyell, told us that he and co-head coach Carmen Babcock started there the first week of September 2000. Gibney was already gone, Stoyell added.
Earlier, we learned that the Wheat Ridge police, some time shortly after September 20, 2000, notified the Arvada police of information about Gibney. The Arvada sergeant told the Wheat Ridge detective that Arvada already knew. The combination of the police information and this new North Jeffco information suggests that Gibney got booted from the club prior to September 2000, but we don’t yet know exactly when.
An Arvada police spokesperson today told me they are searching for records from the period in question and expect to produce them in “5-7 days.”
Also today, I formally filed a public records request with the Wheat Ridge police under Colorado freedom of information law. I am seeking all the files underlying the summary Commander Dave Pickett of the investigations bureau provided in our article yesterday.
THE SERIES SO FAR:
