"It's just not accurate".
President Donald Trump has also dismissed questions about Jordan.
"I was concerned that we not have harassment on either side - that the wrestlers be left alone and feel secure and not harassed or observed or approached", Geiger told The Post, recalling his desire to protect wrestlers who were "feeling uncomfortable".
Next week will be another big moment for Jordan: He will be front and center in joint House hearings with FBI agent Peter Strzok, the man in the middle of what some see as the federal law-enforcement plot to take down Trump.
In an individual statement provided along with the group comment, Hellickson repeated a remark he first released last week that appears to offer a more nuanced view of the allegations: "At no time while Jim Jordan was a coach with me at Ohio State did either of us ignore abuse of our wrestlers". "There's no question in my mind".
The calls for an inquiry come as more former wrestlers at Ohio State University said Jordan knew about sexual abuse by the team physician while he was an assistant coach.
The university has hired an outside firm to investigate the charges, and the firm so far has interviewed more than 150 people.
Skove's brother Andrew Skove wrestled during the time Jordan was a coach and said he stands "100 percent" in support of Jordan. A former wrestling coach who once worked with Jordan described the toxic environment for Ohio State wrestlers as a "cesspool of deviancy". And while the federal government issued guidance in 2001 that required "responsible adults" to report abuse, that guidance did not exist from 1986 to 1994, when Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State - though state law at the time required any suspicion of abuse to a person under 18 be reported. "Mike DiSabato has a vendetta against Ohio State...he's out to get Ohio State", Jordan said.
"There were two choices for Jim when he was asked about this situation: He could have told the truth that he saw it, he was there, he was in the showers and saunas with us", DiSabato said. If I did, I would have done something about it, ' he told Politico on Tuesday.
DiSabato said he never spoke up about Strauss while he was at the university because he didn't recognize it as abuse and because he didn't want to jeopardize his wrestling career.
"I'm sorry, I love Jim Jordan, but he doesn't get to call me a liar to the entire world", DiSabato said.
The allegations have cast a cloud over the congressman at a time when he is ascendant.
Jordan is a co-founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and is considered a candidate to replace retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Gaetz isn't the only conservative suggesting a conspiracy.
"Jim Jordan goes against the powerful interests at the Federal Bureau of Investigation & deep state to expose them & hold them accountable for their crimes", tweeted Mike Tokes, a founder of The New Right, a conservative political organization. "The American people know better".
The group also included former assistant coaches Dave Ruckman, Rex Holman, Ken Chertow, Myron Kharchilava and Kenny Ramsey Jr.as well as Lee Kemp, a former OSU assistant coach who had previously sent out a statement of support, and former volunteer assistant coach John Dougherty.
"Perkins Coie boasts a client roster that includes the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and several Democrat Members of Congress", he said in the statement.
Politico also reported on Friday that six former wrestlers said they were regularly harassed in their training facility, and that although some said Jordan was not to blame, they also said "it would have been impossible for him not to notice the pervasive toxic atmosphere surrounding the team".
