Another Former Wrestler Says Jordan Knew of Abuse

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

Rep. Jim Jordan denies allegations he ignored sexual abuse of Ohio State wrestlers

"I believe him", Trump told reporters on his way to Montana, referring to the victims of sexual abuse and Jordan. "Jordan-went-to-bad-address">office said records show that Ohio State's attempts to contact him went to a non-existent email address. "No question in my mind", Trump said. "Dailey spoke out two days after NBC News reported that three former wrestlers who were coached by Jordan more than two decades ago accused the GOP congressman of turning a blind eye to Strauss' alleged abuse and then lying about it. Jordan denied knowing anything about the abuse and continues to do so".

"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.

Mr. DiSabato said the abuse perpetrated by the convicted former Olympics gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar had prompted him to alert Ohio State about Dr. Strauss in late March.

"If I did, I would have done something about it", Jordan said. "If there had been any reports of abuse I would have reported it", Jordan said Thursday.

Jordan rebuked the allegations this week in an interview with Politico, saying he "never knew about any type of abuse".

Shawn Dailey told NBC News he was groped several times by the team physician Dr. Richard Strauss.

He added, "We not only stand by him, but believe him to be a man of character and honor, and Congress would be well served to have more Jim Jordans serving on Capitol Hill". Jordan's rep countered this, demanding "that they send us the supposed communication" and noting Jordan remains "willing to assist".

Rep Jordan's spokesman said Thursday the Republican is working with investigators to set up a meeting.

"Jim Jordan is a world-caliber athlete who is very aggressive in his actions. he's a bulldog, let's be honest", DiSabato said. "The accusations that have been made by these couple of people who I don't know are...not consistent with the Jim Jordan I've come to know and admire and certainly not consistent what Jim espouses every day when nobody's looking", Meadows said, speaking with the Washington Examiner.

Ohio State has not released details about the claims but said more than 150 former students and witnesses have been interviewed so far.

"I participated with Jimmy and the other wrestlers in locker-room talk about Strauss".

But Jordan disputes reports that he ignored an interview request from a law firm the university has employed to investigate the abuse claims.

Fury said Jordan's office was unable to locate any messages from Trafford.

Dailey said it was "hurtful" Jordan is denying any knowledge of the alleged abuse.
