Paul Ryan calls Jim Jordan a 'man of integrity,' amid accusations Jordan ignored alleged abuse

House Speaker Paul Ryan called embattled Republican Rep. Jim Jordan a man of honesty and integrity Wednesday, amid allegations the Ohio lawmaker turned a blind eye toward alleged abuse while he was an assistant coach two decades ago.

"Jim Jordan is a friend of mine," Ryan said at a news conference on Capitol Hill. "We haven't always agreed with each other over the years. But I always have known Jim Jordan to be a man of honesty, and a man of integrity."

An outside firm was hired earlier this year to conduct an independent investigation at Ohio State University. Jordan, who has repeatedly denied having any direct knowledge of sexual abuse, has not sat down with those investigators yet, but said Tuesday it was possible he might sit down with them this week.

"I am glad Jim is supporting that review," Ryan said.

Ryan shot down the idea that the House Ethics Committee would investigate Jordan, as has been floated, saying that the Ethics Committee typically investigates things that have happened while members are in Congress, not things that happened decades ago and before they were.
