One former wrestler told NBC that Jordan joked about Strauss's inappropriate behavior, including saying, "If he tried that with me, I would kill him". "It boggles my mind that he would take the position that he's taken".
Three former wrestlers who trained under Jordan when he was assistant wrestling coach at the university told NBC News that he had to know about the abuse because it was an open secret.
A spokesman for Jordan said he would "assist" Ohio State University's investigators in any way - despite not yet being contacted by them.
"Obviously, we'll talk with whoever is doing the investigation" to obtain justice for any victims, he said. Though the Times sees that outcome as "unlikely", it believes he'll exert influence over the selection. The congressman said he does remember Dr. Strauss, but echoed his spokesman by insisting he knew nothing of the alleged abuse.
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".
Jordan also said he'll be contacting Capitol Hill police over "strange" harassing emails that DiSabato had sent him as recently as 4:30 a.m. on July 4. "Never heard of abuse", Jordan said. He said in an interview on Tuesday that he had confided in Mr. Jordan multiple times about "the way Strauss performed physicals on us".
One former wrestler, Dunyasha Yetts, said he told Jordan of a time that Strauss pulled his trousers down. "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. "I don't know how he could have forgotten because this was traumatic for all the athletes".
President Donald Trump is coming to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan's defense after the lawmaker was accused this week of turning a blind eye to widespread sexual abuse while he was an assistant wrestling coach at The Ohio State University. He is serving three prison sentences that likely will keep him locked up for life. That sandal also lead to civil lawsuits against Penn State that have been largely settled at the cost of tens of millions of dollars, as well as sanctions from the NCAA that were ultimately lifted several years later.
Former Ohio State wrestlers have said the team doctor showered with students and inappropriately touched them during appointments.
Jordan, a powerful member of the U.S. House of Representatives, is a staunch Trump supporter. This has given Jordan an important, and some would argue outsized, role in shaping budgetary and tax issues as well as the debates over health care reform and immigration, especially over the past eighteen months. Quite obviously, these allegations could have an impact on his ability to mount a challenge to McCarthy as well as his career in Congress depending on which direction they head.
