Ohio State says allegations raised in recent months about Strauss involve male athletes from 14 sports, as well as the physician's work at the student health center and his off-campus medical office. He later moved to California, where he killed himself in 2005 at age 67.

Jordan, one of the most powerful conservatives in Congress, has been accused of ignoring the alleged sexual abuse of student athletes by Strauss and that he failed to report the incidents to the proper authorities.

Jim Jordan was named in a new class-action lawsuit regarding allegations of sexual abuse at Ohio State University.

The law firm Perkins Coie LLP is handling the investigation, and initially said Jordan had been unresponsive to requests for an interview, although Jordan said it was simply because the firm was sending messages to the wrong email address.

Mr. Ryan has said he was waiting for the results of the OSU investigation before weighing in on the issue. The only question - which doesn't even seem like a question any more - is whether or not Jordan knew but did nothing.

Investigators expect to conduct more than 100 additional interviews and remain in regular communication with the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office.

"Just like with the #MeToo movement, there is strength in numbers", said Steve Etsey, an attorney representing one of the four wrestlers from the first lawsuit, according to NBC News.

USA sport has been tarnished by sexual abuse scandals after the Larry Nassar case surfaced in 2015, uncovering sexual crimes committed by the former gymnastics physician over the course of 30 years. The school has repeatedly said that allegations that officials didn't appropriately respond to concerns about Strauss are troubling and are a key focus of the ongoing, independent investigation.

The head coach back then, Russ Hellickson, similarly has said he would have reported any abuse if he had been aware of it.

"Ohio State remains committed to uncovering what may have happened and what university leaders at the time may have known". Attorneys filed a massive class-action lawsuit in U.S. District Court in OH on behalf of an as-yet-unnamed former OSU wrestler.

"The left and everything they've done, I guess you have to look at that". Most of those institutions say they have little record of Strauss, and none has said any concerns were raised about him.

Strauss made a hernia check part of every exam, Sartori and other former athletes said, sometimes lingering a little too long on male athletes' genital area. The UH spokesman said officials found little information related to Strauss beyond employment records saying he was an associate professor for two years starting in 1972.
