Jim Jordan and his accusers, Part Two

Jim Jordan R-Ohio on Capitol Hill

On Thursday, two more wrestlers accused Jordan of allegedly covering up the sex abuse, bringing the total number of accusers to five.

Jordan has denied that he knew about allegations of abuse by Strauss, who joined Ohio State's clinical faculty in 1978 and served as a team physician in the athletics department from 1981 to 1995 before retiring in 1998.

The NBC report said former wrestler Mike DiSabato told the network that before going to the university with the molestation charges, he reached out to Jordan, who told him to "Please leave me out of it".

Since Ohio State launch its own investigation into the abuse allegations, student-athletes from 14 sports have come forward with similar sexual misconduct accusations against Strauss plus patients from Strauss' private medical practice he ran in Columbus in the 90s. "I believe him 100 percent", said Trump.

Unfortunately for the anti-Jordan forces, the two wrestlers - Dunyasha Yetts and Mike DiSabato - turn out to be, respectively, a convicted criminal and a guy who recently was charged with a crime.

Baier continued to grill Jordan on what he knew about alleged abuse, and the congressman maintained there was a difference between locker room conversations and actual reported abuse - denying he had heard either.

"We knew of no abuse, never heard of abuse".

This came as a fourth former Ohio State University wrestler, Shawn Dailey, came forward and said he'd been abused. He said that Mr. Jordan asked him not to get him involved. DiSabato began emailing Jordan in April, and on Wednesday, Jordan reported the emails to the U.S. Capitol Police, describing the latest as "the last straw" to Fox News.

"It's absolutely untrue the things that have been said about me".

"Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington".

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.

A senior member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, he chaired the Republican Study Committee in 2011 and 2012 and helped found the conservative House Freedom Caucus in 2015.

"What happened drove me out of the sport", the former athlete, John Dailey, told NBC News. We would have all these great talks with him and he talked about how one day he'd be the president of the United States.

In separate comments to CNN, Jordan appeared to suggest the allegations may be part of a larger scheme to ruin his career. "We all did", Dailey, 43, 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".

"The investigative team is continuing its efforts to schedule an interview with Rep. Jordan, as well as other individuals with potential knowledge relating to the allegations", Trafford said.
