Ethics review sought as ex-coaches at Ohio defend Jordan

Ethics review sought as ex-coaches at Ohio defend Jordan

And former assistant coach Jim Jordan, now a powerful Republican congressman from OH, has insisted he was never aware of any abuse, a claim he repeated on Fox News.

Strzok has become a focus of House Republicans after special counsel Robert Mueller removed him from the Russian Federation probe over questions of anti-Trump texts.

Jordan stopped short of claiming the alleged victims are orchestrating a conspiracy against him - but he did insinuate the controversy is created to bring him down while he's making national headlines.

"To the contrary, they specifically state they did not tell Jordan but instead say he should have known because there was talk around the locker room".

It's not especially surprising that the president, who once bragged on camera about committing sexual assault, would question the testimonies of sexual abuse victims, but the intensity of Jordan's defenders only serves to highlight how tepid Jordan's response has been.

His repeated denial, which included specific attacks on the characters and motivations of the men sharing their stories, came a day after US President Donald Trump spoke out in Jordan's defense, telling reporters on Air Force One that he was an "outstanding man" and that "I believe him". Jordan claims he had no knowledge of the doctor's alleged predations. And then actually admitting that "Well you know maybe I heard it and it was just kind of locker room talk".

On Tuesday, NBC News published a bombshell report on Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, a powerful conservative on Capitol Hill who's considered a possible future speaker of the House. Ryan is not seeking reelection and Jordan is popular with conservative groups. I think we have to look at these things in context.

The submarine would be relatively safe, even if it didn't get rigorous testing before entering service. Among his tweets about the rescue, he also said: "But let's not submit to the bad mood entirely".

"What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong", a joint statement released Monday by the six coaches read. 'He asked me not to get him involved'. "A guy doesn't touch - inappropriately - hundreds of people and somebody doesn't know about it", he said.

He also argued that the man in question, the doctor who allegedly abused the wrestlers, is dead, "so this isn't even about prosecuting him", he said. He questioned why the focus has been on wrestling, noting that OSU is investigating abuse in other sports, and said while he can not speak for all former OSU wrestlers, he never saw inappropriate behavior from Strauss and never heard of any during his time at the school.

The group also included former assistant coaches Dave Ruckman, Rex Holman, Ken Chertow, Myron Kharchilava and Kenny Ramsey Jr.as well as Lee Kemp, a former OSU assistant coach who had previously sent out a statement of support, and former volunteer assistant coach John Dougherty.

Dan George told the Asbury Park Press there were more people who supported Jordan than were accusing him.

"Perkins Coie boasts a client roster that includes the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and several Democrat Members of Congress", he said in the statement.

"What bugs me the most", he said, "is that these athletes who you spent so much time with are saying things that just are not true". "The university has rightfully initiated a full investigation into the matter", a spokesman for Ryan said in a statement.
