Baier pushed Jordan about other accusers such as national champion and UFC champion Mark Coleman who said he's a big fan of Jordan but that the congressman has not been truthful.

The Columbus Dispatch interviewed Jordan this spring.

"For God's sake, Strauss's locker was right next to Jordan's and Jordan even said he'd kill him if he tried anything with him", Yetts said.

Jordan's spokesman repeated the denial Tuesday.

"We all did", Dailey, 43, told NBC News.

DiSabato subsequently told CNN it was "laughable" that Jordan would feel threatened by his emails, describing Jordan as a "world caliber athlete, who is very aggressive in his actions" and a "bulldog".

"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", Fury said. Dailey also said Jordan knew what happened. DiSabato, 50, said he was moved to tell Ohio State of Strauss' actions after hearing accounts past year of gymnasts sexually abused by sports doctor Larry Nassar.

A few days ago, OnePlus teased us with a unusual commercial that seemed to suggest a new color of the OnePlus 6 was coming. The importance of color red is understood by OnePlus as well, who launch a Lava Red OnePlus 5T previous year .

President Donald Trump on Thursday offered his support to Jordan and said he believes the congressman didn't know about the alleged abuse.

Jordan told Politico he "would have done something about it" had he known of the abuse. "We knew of no abuse".

Jordan has vehemently denied any knowledge of the alleged abuse. He said in an interview on Tuesday that he had confided in Mr. Jordan multiple times about "the way Strauss performed physicals on us".

"This is false", Jordan said. The school has hired a law firm, Perkins Coie, to look into the claims made by former male athletes on 14 sports teams. Some 150 people have been interviewed as part of the probe. DiSabato says he's angered that Jordan hasn't acknowledged the abuse. He added that it's interesting timing "in light of things that are going on in Washington".

The June 15 email reads in part: "Please Jesus look down on us and save us from the worldwide news outlets who are going to be setting up shop in columbus [sic] and Urbana Ohio this fall to provide daily updates on the most vile sex abuse and abuse of power scandal in modern American history of higher education and organized sport!"

Jordan, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, denied any knowledge of alleged abuse by the team's doctor, Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. He's 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.

A spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is retiring, said the university has rightfully initiated an investigation into "serious allegations and issues" and the speaker will await its findings.
