Trump says he doesn't believe allegations against Jim Jordan

  • Ohio lawmaker accused of ignoring abuse of Ohio State student-athletes

There are now five former Ohio State wrestlers who say Jim Jordan knew about but took no action about sexual abuse by the team doctor on the University wrestling team during the time he was an assistant coach.

Mark Coleman, who reportedly roomed with Jordan on more than one road trip while they were at the school in the 1990s, said there is "no way" Jordan didn't know what was going on. I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington. No question in my mind.

Jordan, a founder of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is a potential contender for U.S. House speaker. Ohio State University announced in April it was investigating allegations of sexual abuse leveled at the team doctor Richard Strauss. Four former Ohio State wrestlers have said Jordan was notified of alleged abuse by Strauss and failed to act. "I have nothing but respect for this man, I love this man, but he knew as far as I'm concerned". Jordan was Yetts' weight-class coach at the time, and the two spoke frequently about Strauss, he said.

Male athletes from 14 sports at Ohio State have reported alleged sexual misconduct by Strauss, who was on the faculty and medical staff and published a variety of research.

In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, DiSabato laughed at the notion he was bullying Jordan in any capacity. The doctor died in 2005.

These three men told NBC News that everyone knew Strauss showered regularly with the students and would touch them inappropriately during appointments. He's taken leading roles in fighting the Affordable Care Act and in pushing back against the government's Russian Federation investigation, most recently interrogating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in committee.

"And look, if there are people who are abused, then that's awful and we want justice to happen", he added in his remarks to Politico.

Jordan spokesman Ian Fury said the email address jim.jordan@mail.house.gov is "non-existent" and does not appear to generate a bounceback error message to those who use it outside the House firewall.

High-profile Republican congressman accused of ignoring allegations while coaching wrestling at the university; correspondent Ellison Barber reports on what both sides are saying.

A fourth former wrestler from Ohio State University is accusing Republican Rep.

"I participated with Jimmy and the other wrestlers in locker-room talk about Strauss". If not, it's even money as to whether the politicization of the scandal becomes a big problem for Jim Jordan, or creates a right-wing groundswell to make him the next Speaker. Jordan said, according to a tweet from Fox News reporter Chad Pergram.
