GOP congressman says he ‘never knew about any type of abuse’

Paul Ryan ‘will await the findings’ of Jim Jordan investigation

Strauss then "played with me for 5 or 10 minutes, trying to see if I would get aroused", Garrett told CNN.

'For God's sake, Strauss's locker was right next to Jordan's and Jordan even said he'd kill him if he tried anything with him, ' Yetts said. But he added that the allegations are coming out just when he is being considered for a spot as Speaker of the House, to replace Paul Ryan.

"Mike DiSabato has a vendetta against Ohio State".

The powerful conservative deal maker from OH who has been accused of negligence by students he coached more than two decades ago says "it's not true" that he was aware that wrestlers were being molested and turned a blind eye.

Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State before he entered politics, and the university is now investigating allegations of sexual abuse against the program's longtime team doctor.

DiSabato said he never spoke up about Strauss while he was at the university because he didn't recognize it as abuse and because he didn't want to jeopardize his wrestling career. Rep. Jordan vehemently denied any knowledge of the alleged abuse and some politicians have wondered about the political timing of the accusations as well.

In response to the wrestlers' claim that the doctor's abuse was discussed openly in the locker room, Jordan insisted that "conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse".

But other wrestlers reached by The Dispatch disputed the idea that Jordan knew, or said while there was open joking about Strauss' behavior, that jokes do not equal reports of abuse. "If I had been, I would have dealt with it". He claims that "Jordan definitely knew that these things were happening - yes, most definitely..."

U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, the current chairman of the Freedom Caucus, says he's always known Jordan to be a man of honour and integrity. There's an investigation going on.

Jordan's denials have failed to shift the spotlight from him in the past week, though several former wrestlers have said that they believe him, including some who say the environment in Larkins Hall was problematic.

No one has publicly defended Strauss since the investigation began, and relatives haven't responded to messages left by the AP. Jordan is back at work on Capitol Hill this week, and the House of Representatives formally reconvenes Tuesday.

Jordan has tried to discredit his accusers, especially DiSabato, and his office has sent statements to the press from figures in the wrestling world defending the Ohio Republican, including from the team's former coach.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-1) came to the defense of Jordan as well, "How is Jim Jordan supposed to prove that he didn't know something 28 years ago?" A former wrestling coach who once worked with Jordan described the toxic environment for Ohio State wrestlers as a "cesspool of deviancy". The well-being of student-athletes was all of our concern. "If we had heard of any abuse, we would have spoken up", they stated.

The calls for an inquiry come as more former wrestlers at Ohio State University said Jordan knew about sexual abuse by the team physician while he was an assistant coach.

Rep. Jordan and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) spearheaded a resolution, which passed through the House in June, demanding that Rosenstein turn over all Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation documents requested by Congress. House Republicans have threatened to impeach or hold Rosenstein in contempt if he does not turn over the documents. The wrestlers say Strauss' behavior was a regular topic of locker room conversations that Jordan participated in.

"The group behind bringing this investigation against Jim Jordan is none other than Perkins Coie, which is the law firm that represents Mrs. Clinton, the law firm that represented the DNC", Rios tells OneNewsNow. "RESIGN NOW!" The banner was paid for by the Mad Dog PAC.
