Former Wrestler: Jordan Is “Absolutely Lying” [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

Former Ohio State wrestler Mike DiSabato, who claimed to NBC News that Rep. Jim Jordan ignored allegations of sexual abuse against the team’s doctor when he was the university’s assistant wrestling coach, appeared on CNN Wednesday morning.

Jordan, a House Freedom Caucus founder who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, claims he did not have any knowledge of the allegations of abuse against Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. DiSabato said Jordan “is absolutely lying if he says he doesn’t know what was going on,” and appeared on CNN to further detail the abuse and Jordan’s alleged knowledge of it.

He explained that Jordan was “more like a big brother than a coach,” and that their families are close and they still talk. When CNN’s John Berman asked if he had spoken to Jordan at the time about the abuse, DiSabato replied, “Absolutely.” He added that their conversations were often in the form of “locker room banter.”
