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.

Male athletes from 14 sports at Ohio State have reported alleged sexual misconduct by Richard Strauss.
Strauss died in 2005, but in April the university announced it was opening an investigation into accusations he abused members of the wrestling team. Both messages - dated May 6 and June 15 and bearing the subject line "WINTER IS HERE" - appear to be directed to Ohio State football legend Archie Griffin and former NCAA official Oliver Luck, the father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. "I believe him 100 percent", said Trump.
In addition to stating that he had no knowledge of any reports of abuse during his time as a coach, Jordan has, as noted, said that he's never been contacted about these charges. Jordan was among the people Yetts told about groping the first time in happened in 1992, Yetts told The Associated Press Tuesday.
"I feel sorry for Mark Coleman", Jordan said.
Beginning in 2007, Yetts served 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to federal mail fraud charges. CNN has been unsuccessful in multiple attempts to obtain comment from Hellickson.
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.
The university said its investigation includes "outreach to former student-athletes, coaches and others who may have been affected or may have had knowledge of these alleged incidents".
