Jim Jordan reportedly feels he's being bullied by an alleged victim of sexual abuse at Ohio State University, according to a CNN report, as he continues to deny any knowledge of the alleged abuse.

A fourth former Ohio State University wrestler came forward Thursday, telling NBC News that Jordan, as assistant coach, knew the team's doctor was sexually abusing student athletes but didn't do anything to stop it.

"I don't believe them at all", Trump said to the press pool on the plane.

"Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington and I believe him 100 percent", he said. No question in my mind. Additionally, Jordan is being prompted by many colleagues to challenge Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy in the upcoming race to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker, which will be voted on when the new GOP Caucus meets for the first time after the midterm elections. "He's an outstanding man", Trump added.

"I am not a ideal person, but ask any of the wrestlers and they will tell you everybody knew about Doc", Yetts said.

"Jim knew this - there's no ifs, ands or buts", Michael DiSabato, one of the former wrestlers named in the NBC account, said Tuesday in an interview. "If there was abuse, we want justice done".
