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

In April, Ohio State University announced it was investigating accusations that Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, abused team members when he was their doctor from the mid-1970s to late 1990s.

At the same time, Gaetz defended Rep. Jim Jordan saying he can't prove what he is saying about not knowing about abuse allegations from Ohio State wrestlers.

"What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong", the six coaches said in the statement.

"It was there. He knew about it because it was an everyday occurrence", Range told the Post.

"I voice my truth, to defend the service of Jim Jordan - including his family - and all that they have given and stood for in this country", the statement said.

"I don't think that we look at this kind of thing with the same lens as sex abuse today ... at least not to that degree". "There never was abuse reported to me, and if there was, I would've dealt with it". Jordan has previously claimed he's being "bullied" by DiSabato.

"If it is determined that Rep. Jordan is lying to cover up his failure to protect student wrestlers under his supervision from sexual abuses, the House must hold Rep. Jordan accountable for his lies".

The chaotic corner shop closest to England's hotel was selling kitchen knives, women's underwear and frisbees but no World Cup paraphernalia.

The alum, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said he and his fellow wrestlers would speak openly about how Strauss would shower with the athletes, and how other athletes would comment on how Strauss would always "check for hernias", a reference to Strauss examining their genitals.

"There's no way unless he's got dementia or something that he's got no recollection of what was going on", Coleman said. The university has commissioned an independent investigation.

Jordan is a co-founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and is considered a candidate to replace retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Conservative pundit Brent Bozell channeled the feelings of others on the right when he suggested the allegations were part of a conspiracy to stop Jordan's ascent. "Given the inclusion of Perkins Coie in the mix, the likelihood increases that money has already changed hands to purchase a drive-by character assassination of beloved conservative Republican Congressman Jim Jordan". And then two more people came out accusing Jim Jordan and then a deafening silence from the House Freedom Caucus.

'To date, the investigative team has received confidential reports from former Ohio State varsity men student-athletes affiliated with cheerleading, fencing, football, gymnastics, ice hockey, swimming, volleyball and wrestling, ' a university official said in a statement earlier this year.

Jim Jordan has continued to deny these allegations, saying in a Fox News interview on Friday, "I never saw, never heard of, never was told about any type of abuse".

The 228 pages of Strauss' employment records released by Ohio State offer no clues the university was aware of any sexual misconduct. Some said Strauss groped them barehanded during physicals, had them drop their trousers even while examining them for a cough or heartburn, and badgered students to go home with him. "The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry". "My heart goes out to anyone who was abused in any way", he said.
