Since Ohio State launch its own investigation into the abuse allegations, student-athletes from 14 sports have come forward with similar sexual misconduct accusations against Strauss plus patients from Strauss' private medical practice he ran in Columbus in the 90s. "I believe him. Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington", Trump said to reporters during a brief gaggle aboard Air Force One on Thursday. Strauss died in 2005, and it was ruled a suicide. If he had seen abuse at the time, "I would have done something about it", the Ohio Republican said in an interview this week.
"Conversations in the locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse to us". 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.
The allegations come at a critical time for Jordan, whom conservative outside groups have endorsed as a possible replacement for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who is not running for reelection.
President Donald Trump said on Thursday, "I believe Jim 100 percent".

"I think Jim is in a position where he doesn't know what to say now", said DiSabato, blaming Jordan's stance on "terrible advice" from political advisers. Never heard of abuse.
As ThinkProgress previously noted, Jordan has always been thought to be a top contender to replace House Speaker Paul Ryan, once Ryan steps down in November, and enjoys the full support of several high-profile members of Congress, as well as the president himself. We're happy to talk with the folks doing the investigation. In a video shared with NBC, former head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson said he confronted Strauss and told school officials. However, an email sent from DiSabato at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday was "the last straw" and prompted Jordan to alert Capitol Police.
Former wrestler Dunyasha Yetts says he went straight to Jordan after Strauss began to remove his wrestling shorts when he sought help for a thumb injury. "We all did", Dailey, 43, told NBC News. He recalled an incident where Strauss - whose locker was next to Jordan's - had dressed after a shower to leave the building, but then disrobed and went back in for another one after noticing a favorite athlete entering the shower room. "If we had, we'd have reported it".
"The investigative team is continuing its efforts to schedule an interview with Rep. Jordan, as well as other individuals with potential knowledge relating to the allegations", Trafford said.
