He's the fourth former wrestler to come forward to NBC and say that Jordan, a former assistant coach at Ohio State, knew of allegations of abuse against Strauss.
I've talked to other coaches, and they didn't know of any abuse. He said he was surprised Jordan had denied knowing anything about it: "I would say that's kind of hurtful". "I believe him 100 percent", Trump told reporters Thursday aboard Air Force One. "No question in my mind", Trump said. "He's an outstanding man", Trump added. On Thursday, two more wrestlers accused Jordan of allegedly covering up the sex abuse, bringing the total number of accusers to five. For any teacher, protecting kids is the absolute first priority-and I say that as a former kindergarten teacher.
The conservative firebrand, who has repeatedly denied that he ever knew about the alleged abuse, told reporters Wednesday he was asking the Capitol Police to look into what he called "strange" harassing emails his office received from DiSabato as recently as 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
The university announced in April that it had started an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct against a former team physician, Dr. Richard Strauss, who killed himself in 2005. Shine was cited in at least four lawsuits alleging sexual harassment or racial discrimination and was largely considered unhirable after his unceremonious exit from Fox News.
In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, DiSabato laughed at the notion he was bullying Jordan in any capacity.
Jordan's office also said that it had not been contacted by investigators from the university looking into the accusations. While Dailey said he did not directly report the abuse to Jordan, he said Strauss' abuse was mentioned several times in locker room conversations that Jordan was involved in. Jordan's rep countered this, demanding "that they send us the supposed communication" and noting Jordan remains "willing to assist".

"I believe Jim Jordan 100 percent".
Ohio State has not released details about the claims but said more than 150 former students and witnesses have been interviewed so far.
These three men told NBC News that everyone knew Strauss showered regularly with the students and would touch them inappropriately during appointments. "It was very common knowledge in the locker room that if you went to Dr. Strauss for anything, you would have to pull your trousers down".
But Jordan disputes reports that he ignored an interview request from a law firm the university has employed to investigate the abuse claims.
Dr. Strauss's inappropriate touching of athletes was open knowledge, he said, and he remembered talking about it with Mr. Jordan on road trips, in the sauna and after practices.
