Jordan has denied knowing about this, and said it's retaliation for his actions in Congress.

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.

David Range, who wrestled for Ohio State in the late 1980s, said Jordan had to have known about alleged sexual misconduct by Richard Strauss, an athletic doctor whose behavior is under investigation by the school, because it happened regularly to team members and people talked about it. Jordan has denied he knew, saw or heard about any inappropriate behavior while he was an assistant wrestling coach from 1987 to 1995.

Jordan, 51, is conservative firebrand who came to Capitol Hill in 2007 and quickly rose in the ranks of power.

"No one ever reported any abuse to me", he told Fox News' Bret Baier on Friday.

Instead, Jordan continued to fan conspiracy theories connecting the emergence of the charges to his aggressive questioning last month of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, the man many Trump supporters hold responsible for the Russian Federation investigation.

As more former students came forward to dispute Jordan's claim, the OH representative on Friday told Fox News' Bret Baier the abuse was only discussed in "locker room conversations".

One of those accusers, Mike DiSabato, scoffed at suggestions that his motivation in calling out Jordan was political or part of a personal vendetta.

"I think the timing is suspect when you think about how this whole story came together after the Rosenstein hearing and the speaker's race", he said.

"At no time while Jim Jordan was a coach with me at Ohio State did either of us ignore abuse of our wrestlers", Hellickson added. Jordan has emerged as one of the president's staunchest defenders, helping to lead a Republican counterinvestigation of Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials who are looking into potential connections between the Trump campaign and Russian election interference. I think we have to look at these things in context.

CNN has been unsuccessful in multiple attempts to obtain comment from Hellickson, but a group of former OSU wrestling coaches - including Hellickson - released a joint statement Monday disputing the allegations against Jordan. "I believe him 100 percent". Nick Nutter, an All-American wrestler in the 1990s, said he constantly did a calculation before deciding whether to see Strauss: "Is this injury bad enough that I'm going to get molested for it?"

DiSabato, whose allegations against Strauss prompted the university to investigate, called Jordan a liar outright.

Jordan was a two-time NCAA Division I wrestling champion during his time at the University of Madison-Wisconsin. "A guy doesn't touch - inappropriately - hundreds of people and somebody doesn't know about it", he said. "There's no question in my mind".

Jordan's supporters have tried to amass evidence of that conspiracy. "Along with the alleged victims, our family seeks the truth and is full [sic] cooperating with The Ohio State University's independent investigation". It's unclear whether Coleman reported the abuse to Ohio State.

Defending Jordan in a statement Monday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) dismissed Perkins Coie as a "Washington, DC-based dirty tricks law firm" with powerful Democrats among its clients.

Holman said he hasn't been interviewed, and he wouldn't address whether he'll speak with investigators. "The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry".
