Rep. Jim Jordan was interviewed Monday by the law firm investigating sex abuse allegations that a wrestling team doctor at Ohio State University allegedly committed, some of which is said to have happened while Rep. Jordan was a coach, per the AP.

What he said: His spokesperson Ian Fury told the AP Rep. Jordan reiterated his public statement, which is that he was not aware of the abuse when he was a coach, despite allegations from wrestlers that he knew. Fury told the AP, "you know, the story stays the same because the truth doesn't change." Rep. Jordan has said victims deserve to see justice if abuse had occurred.
