A law firm is investigating allegations about alleged sexual abuse by the now-dead physician and what Ohio State knew at the time.

When asked why the reports that he knew of the abuse only just now surfaced, he called the allegations "sequenced and choreographed". "Congressman Jordan told the investigators the same thing he's told you folks in the media since day one: he never saw any abuse, never heard of any abuse, and never had any abuse reported to him".

"The interview took place Monday morning in OH", said Ian Fury, Jordan's spokesman, in a statement. "Never had any reported to me".

Jordan has publicly said he was never aware of abuse when he was an assistant coach from 1987 to 1995, and he has repeatedly denied some former wrestlers' claims that he knew they were inappropriately groped by Strauss. But the speaker said last week that he didn't think that the House Ethics Committee should look into the allegations, saying the activity in question occurred decades before Mr. Jordan took office.

Fox News' Bill Hemmer told viewers he takes Jordan at his word, and asked why the allegations are coming out now.

Jordan is seen as a contender to be the next Speaker of the House when current House Speaker Paul Ryan retires in January.

Former wrestling team captain Dave Mulvin has said he raised concerns to another doctor at the student health center back in the late 1970s after Strauss fondled him during an exam. Mulvin said the other doctor shrugged it off. The lawsuits were brought by a total of five former wrestlers who allege they were victims of sexual misconduct by Strauss. Dr. Richard Strauss, who died by suicide in 2005, is believed to have sexually assaulted or raped possibly thousands of students at Ohio State.

"All I can do is tell the truth and keep fighting for the folks back in the fourth district of OH, and doing what we told the American people we were going to do. I also think it has something to do with the fact that I think President Trump is doing a great job, and we're trying to support him in making America great again", Jordan insisted, despite all evidence to the contrary.
