Fifth Ohio State wrestler claims Jordan ignored sexual abuse

Jim Jordan R-Ohio on Capitol Hill

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a former standout college wrestler at the University of Wisconsin and later a coach at Ohio State, knew when he was at the university that the doctor was groping male wrestlers, said ex-wrestlers Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts. "I believe him 100 percent", Trump said while speaking to reporters on Air Force One.

The office of 4th district congressman Jim Jordan says newly released records show attempts to schedule an interview with him as part of an Ohio State sex abuse investigation were sent to a non-existent email address. "No question in my mind", Trump said.

Three wrestlers came forward two days ago, telling NBC News that they were coached by Jordan and that they either told him or that he knew of it.

Since Ohio State launch its own investigation into the abuse allegations, student-athletes from 14 sports have come forward with similar sexual misconduct accusations against Strauss plus patients from Strauss' private medical practice he ran in Columbus in the 90s.

"He knew", DiSabato said in a brief phone interview with The Washington Post.

The stories of abuse date back to the mid-1990s during Jordan's time as the team's assistant coach.

The FBI seized roughly 4 million documents from the lawyer in April raids on his home, office, and hotel room. Stephanopoulos billed the unusual interview as a one-on-one exclusive, but Cohen was not talking to him.

Asked whether he had been in contact with Jordan before going public, DiSabato claimed that he had exchanged messages with the conservative lawmaker "didn't deny what was happening, and he said he wanted to be left out of it".

Strauss died in 2005, but in April the university announced it was opening an investigation into accusations he abused members of the wrestling team. "We all did", Dailey told NBC News. He called Jordan a close friend, but said it was painful to see that Jordan was denying any knowledge of allegations against Strauss. 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. "If we had, we would have reported it", Jordan told reporters on Wednesday.

"Jim Jordan is a world-caliber athlete who is very aggressive in his actions. he's a bulldog, let's be honest", DiSabato said.

Former Ohio State wrestlers have said the team doctor showered with students and inappropriately touched them during appointments.

"I participated with Jimmy and the other wrestlers in locker-room talk about Strauss". Messrs. Coleman and Jordan roomed together on several wrestling trips, Mr. Coleman said.

But Jordan disputes reports that he ignored an interview request from a law firm the university has employed to investigate the abuse claims. "But to say that he had no knowledge of it, I would say that's kind of hurtful".
