Trump Believes Jim Jordan ‘100%,’ Among ‘Most Outstanding’ in D.C.

"I did know Dr. Strauss", Jordan said.

Fox News on Friday suggested one of the wrestlers accusing Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) of ignoring sexual abuse claims at Ohio State had a "credibility problem" because he was recently released from jail.

I've talked to other coaches, and they didn't know of any abuse. But from what I can tell there's been no move to call for any investigation from Jordan's Republican colleagues.

Donald Trump said he believes Jordan, who denied the allegations (above): "Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington. No question in my mind", Trump said.

DiSabato told NBC News, "I considered Jim Jordan a friend. He's an outstanding man". Jordan was among the people Yetts told about groping the first time in happened in 1992, Yetts told The Associated Press Tuesday. "But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn't know what was going on". "If there was abuse, we want justice done".

Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, was accused of sexually assaulting wrestling team members while he was the team doctor from the 1970s to the 1990s. It began with accusations by three former wrestlers coached by Jordan and a firm denial by the co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus and perhaps-aspiring Speaker of the House. An investigative legal team looking into the allegations against Strauss previously contacted Jordan's office by phone and email requesting he participate in an interview, but Jordan did not respond, said Kathleen Trafford of Porter Wright in Columbus. "If there had been any reports of abuse I would have reported it", Jordan said Thursday.

According to a source within Jordan's office, the congressman planned to contact police over repeated emails from DiSabato, which he reportedly said constitute "bullying". Messrs. Coleman and Jordan roomed together on several wrestling trips, Mr. Coleman said. In a video shared with NBC, former head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson said he confronted Strauss and told school officials. "So it's sad for me to hear that he's denying knowing about Strauss", Yetts told NBC. "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".

Vitter appeared to be referring to a report published Thursday by the conservative Daily Caller, which noted two of Jordan's accusers, Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts, had histories of engaging in troubling business dealings. If not, it's even money as to whether the politicization of the scandal becomes a big problem for Jim Jordan, or creates a right-wing groundswell to make him the next Speaker. "But to say that he had no knowledge of it, I would say that's kind of hurtful".
