Rep. Jim Jordan continued to deny that he knew of any sexual assault allegations at Ohio State University on Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier, saying "[w]e would've dealt with it if we knew of anything that happened."

The details: Four former OSU wrestlers have come forward saying that Jordan knew of abuse from the team doctor. Jordan told Baier that the people who have come forward "know what they're saying is not accurate," and that "[w]e're going to get the truth out." Jordan also speculated that his political prominence was behind the allegations, saying that "the timing is suspect when you think about how this whole story came together after the Rosenstein hearing and the speakers race."
