Jordan insists he didn't know about alleged OSU sex abuse

Mr. DiSabato said the abuse perpetrated by the convicted former Olympics gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar had prompted him to alert Ohio State about Dr. Strauss in late March. Jordan told Fox that the requests never reached him, calling claims he failed to reply "ridiculous".

Strauss, who committed suicide in 2005, was Ohio State's doctor for the wrestling team from the mid-1970s until the 1990s, according to the NBC report.

Trafford said Perkins Coie followed up on the May emails with a June 12 phone call that Jordan appears also not to have received.

The Columbus Dispatch interviewed Jordan this spring.

"Conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse", Jordan said Friday, adding that "no one ever reported any abuse to me".

Jordan's spokesman repeated the denial Tuesday.

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.

Dailey identified himself as a "close friend" of Jordan, and once contributed to his campaign. "Jimmy said something to the extent of, 'If he tried that with me, I would kill him'".

England have long-been the advocates of the 4-4-2 formation which many now consider to be out-dated. Speaking to teleSUR , he said: "I saw a monumental theft on the pitch".

The firm's presence is a sure sign that the left has undertaken a concerted effort to bring Jim Jordan down, and that the sudden emergence of allegations centering on events from at least 25 years ago has nothing to do with what happened (or didn't happen) back then. Yetts says it was far from the only discussion players had with Jordan, and that it was commonly known Strauss showered with players though he didn't work out.

"We knew of no abuse, never heard of abuse". Never heard of abuse. He said that Mr. Jordan asked him not to get him involved.

The university has urged anyone with relevant information about Strauss to contact the law firm Perkins Coie, which is conducting an independent investigation. Some 150 people have been interviewed as part of the probe.

Vitter appeared to be referring to a report published Thursday by the conservative Daily Caller, which noted two of Jordan's accusers, Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts, had histories of engaging in troubling business dealings.

Jordan's spokesman said he would assist investigators in any way he could. "And look, if there are people who are abused, then that's awful and we want justice to happen". 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.

Doug Andres, a spokesman for Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, said: "These are serious allegations and issues".

Jordan has served in the U.S. House since 2007.
