Trump Believes Jim Jordan ‘100%,’ Among ‘Most Outstanding’ in D.C.

Ohio lawmaker accused of ignoring abuse of Ohio State student-athletes

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not believe allegations by several former wrestlers at Ohio State University coached by Republican Representative Jim Jordan that he was aware the team doctor was molesting them.

Yetts, for his part, did speak briefly about his time in prison when reached by NBC News reporters for an interview earlier in the week.

"I don't believe them at all".

Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, would allegedly shower with the athletes and inappropriately touch them during appointments, according to NBC News, which first reported Tuesday that three former wrestlers said Jordan would have had to have known about it.

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. He has taken leading roles in fighting the Affordable Care Act and in pushing back against the government's Russian Federation investigation, most recently interrogating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in committee. Athletes from 14 sports have reported sexual misconduct by Strauss to the university.

"Mike DeSabato has a vendetta against Ohio State". The law firm Perkins Coie was hired to probe Strauss's behavior at Ohio State, where he joined the clinical faculty in 1978.

Perkins Coie also is reviewing whether Strauss examined high school students.

Auto tariffs could lead to $300B retaliation — European Union warns Trump
Stocks on Wall Street were volatile as investors anxious about the mounting trade war between the U.S. and its trading partners. Warner warned if the US were to hit Canada with auto tariffs, it would be "a real kick in the gut" to the country's economy.

"Coach Jordan knew what was going on, 100 percent", Mr. Yetts said. Jordan said Wednesday that he knew nothing about any allegations against Strauss. Sources tell Fox News that Jordan had previously forwarded the emails to Chief of Staff Kevin Eichinger and Jordan's attorney. "Jimmy said something to the extent of, 'If he tried that with me, I would kill him'". CNN has been unsuccessful in multiple attempts to obtain comment from Hellickson. He said the fraud case has nothing to do with what he went through as a student-athlete.

A source in Jordan's office, who described the emails as " freakish, seemingly unhinged", told ABC News the lawmaker received the emails on his personal account and they were turned over by his staff to Capitol Police for their expert assessment.

"DiSabato has a vendetta against Ohio State", the congressman replied, referring to the former wrestler's long-running dispute with the university. "He has not been contacted by investigators about the matter but will assist them in any way they ask because, if what is alleged is true, the victims deserve a full investigation and justice".

Late Tuesday, a law firm representing Ohio State contradicted that statement.

Fury said Jordan's office was unable to locate any messages from Trafford.

Jordan, who served in the OH state legislature, was elected to the House in 2006 and has played a role in virtually every debate pitting conservative insurgents against House GOP leaders.
