Now anyone familiar with the president's relationship with factual evidence or with sex abuse allegations is very unlikely to take his word for Jordan's innocence unless they do so by blind faith in MAGA or really don't care what's true or false. Former wrestlers he coached are now accusing him of ignoring and failing to stop the team doctor, Dr. Richard Strauss, from molesting them and other students, NBC News first reported on Tuesday.
"There's no way unless he's got dementia or something that he's got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State", Mr. Coleman, the mixed martial arts champion, said of Mr. Jordan in an interview Friday.
But DiSabato said he and other former athletes at the university were motivated to come forward by the recent conviction of former Olympics gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.
DiSabato said the objective of the video was to provide university officials with firsthand accounts of the alleged abuse, and not just the versions of victims' testimonies that would be relayed by investigators with Perkins Coie, the law firm.
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.
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.
The aide said Jordan's office contacted Capitol Police about the threats, which DiSabato denies having made.

"To date, Rep. Jordan has not responded to those requests", Kathleen Trafford said in a statement provided by Ohio State.
The former wrestler claims that Jordan told him to "please leave me out of it" when he told the congressman he planned to go public with the accusations earlier this year.
"They went in and talked to Strauss".
"I feel sorry for Mark Coleman", Jordan said. "So it's sad for me to hear that he's denying knowing about Strauss", Yetts told NBC. CNN has been unsuccessful in multiple attempts to obtain comment from Hellickson.
In the video, Hellickson says he confronted Strauss about taking showers with the student athletes, and told the doctor he was making the wrestlers nervous.
The law firm Perkins Coie was hired by Porter Wright to conduct an independent investigation into Strauss's behavior.
"I recall vividly Jim Jordan looking at me and us going 'wow, '" DiSabato said.
