Jordan insists he didn't know about alleged OSU sex abuse

Five former wrestlers also say Jordan, who served as an assistant wrestling coach from 1986 to 1994, knew about the abuse but did nothing, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. "Conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse to us", Jordan told Baier.

"I told him one time, I said, 'Doctor you're much too hands on, ' and he just said, 'Oh, I'm being thorough, ' " Hellickson said.

Strauss, who committed suicide in 2005, was Ohio State's doctor for the wrestling team from the mid-1970s until the 1990s, according to the NBC report. If he had seen abuse at the time, "I would have done something about it", the Ohio Republican said in an interview this week. "No question in my mind", Trump added in the Thursday comments to reporters aboard Air Force One as they headed out for a Trump campaign rally in Montana. "We knew of no abuse". Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1987 to 1995.

DiSabato said he had forwarded Jordan a screenshot of a message he saw from former Ohio State football player Matt Finkes - whom he identified as Jordan's cousin. He said he hadn't personally talked to DiSabato since late March or April. His staff is now alleging that Jordan's original accuser, Michael DiSabato, sent threatening emails to the congressman before and after the story broke.

"It's absolutely untrue the things that have been said about me". Never heard of abuse. "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.

David Foster, Katharine McPhee are engaged
Cook from 1972 to 1981, Rebecca Dyer from 1982 to 1986, Linda Thompson from 1991 to 2005, and Yolanda Hadid from 2011 to 2017. When ET caught up with Foster at his home in March, he explained what it's like to date someone who approves of his kids.

Jordan is the powerful Republican founder of the House Freedom Caucus and dark horse candidate for speaker.

The video was produced in June by former OSU wrester Mike DiSabato's company Combat Athlete Coalition, he told CNN. The congressman said his office has no record of such outreach and he is willing to talk with investigators but had nothing scheduled as of Wednesday.

The email address glitch appeared to clear up contradictory statements by Jordan's office and Porter Wright, the law firm leading Ohio State's investigation into Dr. Richard Strauss.

"Jim Jordan is a world-caliber athlete who is very aggressive in his actions. he's a bulldog, let's be honest", DiSabato said. "So it's sad for me to hear that he's denying knowing about Strauss", Yetts told NBC. He recalled an incident where Strauss - whose locker was next to Jordan's - had dressed after a shower to leave the building, but then disrobed and went back in for another one after noticing a favorite athlete entering the shower room.

"The investigative team is continuing its efforts to schedule an interview with Rep. Jordan, as well as other individuals with potential knowledge relating to the allegations", Trafford said.
