Powerful Republican Pulled Into Ohio State Molestation Scandal

Powerful Republican Pulled Into Ohio State Molestation Scandal

A former Ohio State University wrestler told Fox News Thursday that he sent a series of emails to Rep. Jim Jordan about alleged sexual abuse by a team doctor in an effort "to help him realize he needed to step forward and lead [and] cut through the BS at Ohio State". "If I had been, I would have dealt with it". For any teacher, protecting kids is the absolute first priority-and I say that as a former kindergarten teacher.

Jordan's star has risen rapidly in the Republican Party in recent years due to his role in the very conservative House Freedom Caucus. At the time, Jordan said he knew nothing about the alleged abuse by Strauss. "I believe him", Trump said of the allegations that Jordan had knowledge of the abuse claims against the doctor. "So, I was surprised to hear Jim say that he knew nothing about it. Jimmy's a good guy".

The wrestler, Shawn Dailey, said he was groped half a dozen times by Dr. Richard Strauss in the mid-1990s, when Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach.

Jordan said that if he had heard of the alleged abuse, he would have investigated it, adding that "if in fact there were victims, they deserve justice".

"Conversations in the locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse to us".

Jordan has vehemently denied any knowledge of the alleged abuse.

DiSabato said the objective of the video was to provide university officials with firsthand accounts of the alleged abuse, and not just the versions of victims' testimonies that would be relayed by investigators with Perkins Coie, the law firm. He said he hadn't personally talked to DiSabato since late March or April.

The vibrant Colombia fans belted out their national anthem and bounced in unison, swinging scarves above their heads. Then, unlike so many times before, luck finally smiled on them in the shootout.

Dunyasha Yetts, the captain of the wrestling team for the 1993-1994 season, who was named in the NBC story, also implicated the congressman.

The aide said Jordan's office contacted Capitol Police about the threats, which DiSabato denies having made. "If we had, we'd have reported it". "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington".

"What happened drove me out of the sport", the former athlete, John Dailey, told NBC News.

CNN confronted Jordan himself on this Fourth of July. "We all did", Dailey, 43, told NBC News.

Dailey told NBC News, "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", and that Jordan was present when this was discussed. 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.

"I don't believe [the accusers] at all", President Trump said, speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One, on his way to a rally in Montana Thursday night.
