  • Jim Jordan Denies Reports He Hid Sexual Abuse at Ohio State

U.S. Capitol Police are reviewing what were described as unusual emails sent to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan from a former college wrestler who claimed the lawmaker ignored sexual abuse against students when he coached at Ohio State University more than two decades ago.

The report, by NBC News, said that three former wrestlers said it was commonly known that Dr. Strauss showered with students and touched them inappropriately during appointments, and that Mr. Jordan, an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, must have known about the abuse.

One former wrestler, Dunyasha Yetts, said he told Jordan of a time that Strauss pulled his trousers down.

"I never knew of any abuse from Dr. Strauss, plain and simple". "It was very common knowledge in the locker room that if you went to Dr. Strauss for anything, you would have to pull your trousers down". His press secretary released statements from the wife of one of Jordan's former wrestlers, as well as Russ Hellickson, who was the head coach during Jordan's time with the team, defending Jordan's conduct.

"Congressman Jordan never saw any abuse, never heard about any abuse, and never had any abuse reported to him during his time as a coach at Ohio State", a Jordan spokesman told CBS News.

Jordan's office did not immediately reply to a request for comment from The Hill on Thursday.

Jordan has denied that he knew about allegations of abuse by Strauss, who joined Ohio State's clinical faculty in 1978 and served as a team physician in the athletics department from 1981 to 1995 before retiring in 1998. "The things he said are just not true". I believe Jim Jordan 100%.

"No question in my mind", Trump added. "He's an outstanding man".

"For God's sake, Strauss's locker was right next to Jordan's and Jordan even said he'd kill him if he tried anything with him", Yetts told NBC. A Twitter account that appeared to be DiSabato's retweeted the NBC News story Tuesday. "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington", Trump said to reporters during a brief gaggle aboard Air Force One on Thursday.

Jordan told Fox that the requests never reached him, calling claims he failed to reply "ridiculous".

CNN says male members from 14 of the university's sports teams-among them baseball, fencing, football, swimming, and track-have levied allegations against Strauss per Ohio State. OSU in April opened up an investigation into the extent of the college's knowledge of the abuse.

Dunyasha Yetts, who wrestled at OSU from 1993 to 1994, explained why. The university has rightfully initiated a full investigation into the matter.

Jordan continues to contend that he was unaware of the matter and that had he been aware, he would have addressed it, according to his Tuesday interview with Politico. Jordan's rep countered this, demanding "that they send us the supposed communication" and noting Jordan remains "willing to assist".
