The Jim Jordan Matter

The Jim Jordan Matter

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 don't believe them at all - I believe him", Trump said of the claims against the conservative lawmaker, The Hill reported.

President Donald Trump said on Thursday, "I believe Jim 100 percent". "No question in my mind", Trump said.

The allegations were reported on Tuesday by NBC News, which said Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994.

Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, would allegedly shower with the athletes and inappropriately touch them during appointments, according to NBC News, which first reported Tuesday that three former wrestlers said Jordan would have had to have known about it. DiSabato, 50, said he was moved to tell Ohio State of Strauss' actions after hearing accounts previous year of gymnasts sexually abused by sports doctor Larry Nassar.

"It's absolutely untrue the things that have been said about me if there had been any reports of abuse I would have reported it", Jordan told reporters Thursday. Jordan was Yetts' weight-class coach at the time, and the two spoke frequently about Strauss, he said.

"I am not a ideal person, but ask any of the wrestlers and they will tell you everybody knew about Doc", Yetts said.

Super PACs ramp up Missouri ad buys MORE (R-Ohio) knew about allegations of sexual misconduct by a team doctor when he was an assistant coach in the 1990s.

The aide said Jordan's office contacted Capitol Police about the threats, which DiSabato denies having made. Dailey told NBC that Jordan participated in discussions in which the subject of Strauss' behavior came up. I believe Jim Jordan 100 percent. "So, when you look at the definition of sexual abuse and sexual assault - and Jim Jordan just went on record saying he knew about the facilities - he took showers with us".

Jordan attended a July 4 Tea Party rally Wednesday in Fremont, Ohio where he confronted the accusations and continued to deny that he was aware of the alleged abuse in Columbus. It's not the story of Michigan State University and Larry Nassar but that of Ohio State-and the allegations are touching a "powerful" Republican congressman.

Fury said Jordan was willing to cooperate with the investigation but had not been contacted about an interview, a point disputed by the law firm appointed by the Ohio attorney general's office to represent Ohio State in the matter. "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".

"I love Jimmy to death", the ex-wrestler said.
