Ohio State Investigators' Emails To Jim Jordan Went To Bad Address

Jim Jordan Allegations against me aren't true

Jim Jordan Allegations against me aren't true

Ian Fury, a spokesman for Jordan, said the congressman never saw or heard about any abuse and never had any abuse reported to him during his time as a coach at Ohio State. "I believe him", Trump told reporters on his way to Montana, referring to the victims of sexual abuse and Jordan.

More immediately, Mr. Jordan has stepped forward as one of President Trump's most visible, aggressive and undaunted defenders in the House, helping lead a Republican counterinvestigation of those F.B.I. and Justice Department officials who are investigating potential connections between the Trump campaign and Russian election interference efforts.

"I never knew of any abuse from Dr. Strauss, plain and simple", said Jordan, adding that the timing of the accusations "makes you wonder". The source added that the messages were vaguely threatening in nature in part because of the amount of emails sent, and that Jordan did not respond to the emails because he felt the man was "bullying him"'.

A law firm representing Ohio State University says an investigative team unsuccessfully sought an interview with an Ohio congressman about sex abuse allegations at the university two decades ago. Jordan has repeatedly denied those assertions by ex-wrestlers Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts.

"Jim knew this - there's no ifs, ands or buts", Michael DiSabato, one of the former wrestlers named in the NBC account, said Tuesday in an interview.

Trafford said Perkins Coie followed up on the May emails with a June 12 phone call that Jordan appears also not to have received.

Jordan's star has risen rapidly in the Republican Party in recent years due to his role in the very conservative House Freedom Caucus. DiSabato described it as an attempt to "intimidate and retaliate" against him by posting a mugshot of him and suggesting that a local news station look into his background.




"I am not a flawless person, but ask any of the wrestlers and they will tell you everybody knew about Doc", Yetts said.

Dr. Strauss's inappropriate touching of athletes was open knowledge, he said, and he remembered talking about it with Mr. Jordan on road trips, in the sauna and after practices.

"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.

Jordan said he hasn't personally spoken with DiSabato since late March or April.

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

Jordan has denied any knowledge, telling Politico, "I never knew about any type of abuse".

DiSabato told CNN that Strauss would go out of his way to take multiple showers with athletes every day in different venues around Ohio State.
