James Daniel Jordan (born February 17, 1964) is an American politician, wrestler, and former collegiate wrestling coach. He entered politics and has served as the U.S. Representative for Ohio's 4th congressional district since 2007. A member of the Republican Party, he has been the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee since 2019. Jordan is a founding member of the Freedom Caucus, which he chaired from its establishment in 2015 until 2017. His district stretches from Lake Erie to just below Urbana in the north-central and western portions of the state and includes Lima, Marion, Tiffin, Urbana and Elyria.

Early life, education and early career

Jordan was born and raised in Champaign County, Ohio. He attended and wrestled for Graham High School, graduating in 1982. He won state championships all four years he was in high school and compiled a 156-28-1 win-loss record. He then enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he became a two-time NCAA Division I wrestling champion. Jordan won the 1985 and 1986 NCAA championship matches in the 134-pound weight class.[1][2] He graduated with a bachelor's degree in economics in 1986. He lost the 57-62 kg featherweight semi-final match at the 1988 US Olympic wrestling trials and did not make the Olympic Team.

Jordan earned a master's degree in education from Ohio State University in Columbus and obtained a J.D. degree from Ohio's Capital University Law School[3] in 2001. He claims that he did not take the bar examination. In a 2018 interview he said "Never took the bar exam, so don't, like - I'm not - I'm just a wannabe."[4]

Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach with Ohio State University's (OSU) wrestling program from 1987 to 1995. During his tenure as Assistant Coach, at least 53 members of the Wrestling Team were sexually abused by the team physician. Jordan has refused to cooperate with the investigations into sexual misconduct at OSU and has refused all requests to be interviewed.[5][6]

Political career

Ohio General Assembly

Jordan was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in November 1994 and represented the 85th Ohio House district for three terms.

In 2000, Jordan defeated independent candidate Jack Kaffenberger to win a seat in the Ohio Senate with 88% of the vote. In 2004, Jordan defeated Kaffenberger again, this time with 79% of the vote.

U.S. House of Representatives

Jordan currently represents Western Ohio's 4th Congressional District. The district has been redrawn over time to minimize urban area and increase the rural area; it is gerrymandered to avoid having Toledo, Columbus or Cleveland (or their respective suburbs) in the District which stretches from Lake Erie nearly to Dayton. A three-judge federal panel unanimously ruled in May 2019 that Ohio's congressional district map is unconstitutional due to partisan gerrymandering and ordered the state to create a new map in time for the 2020 Election. The issue remains unresolved and may not be addressed until after the 2020 Census[7]

Jordan and Meadows discussing issues in 2017

Jordan won the Republican primary for the 4th district in 2006 after 26-year incumbent Mike Oxley announced his retirement. Jordan defeated Democrat Rick Siferd in the general election with 60 percent of the votes.[8]

Jordan was reelected in 2008, defeating Democrat Mike Carroll with 65 percent of the votes.[9]

Jordan was reelected in 2010, defeating Democrat Doug Litt and Libertarian Donald Kissick with 71 percent of the votes.[8]

Jordan chaired the Republican Study Committee[10] during the 112th Congress[11] while turning down a position on the Appropriations Committee.[12]

During the 114th Congress, Jordan was one of the nine founders the House Freedom Caucus, a bloc of conservatives working to "to advance an agenda of limited constitutional government" in Congress.[13] He served as the group's first chairman.[14] The Caucus was ultimately credited with pushing Speaker John Boehner into retirement.[15]

Jordan received a vote for speaker of the 113th Congress from a fellow right-wing conservative, Tea Party Caucus chairman Tim Huelskamp of Kansas. Jordan received two votes for speaker during the 114th Congress.[16]

On July 26, 2018, Jordan announced his bid for house speaker following resignation of Paul Ryan,[17] but lost to Kevin McCarthy.[18] His campaign ended when Democrats took the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.[17] Subsequently, Jordan campaigned for house minority leader. Former Ohio state Representative Capri Cafar said that Jordan, "...is someone who has built a reputation as an attack dog, someone who is media savvy, someone who is a stalwart supporter of the president and who has the skill necessary to take the lead for the GOP."[15] He lost his bid to California Republican McCarthy in a 159-43 vote.[19]

Jordan addresses the media in November 2019 after the Republican "sit-in" that delayed an impeachment deposition.

Committee assignments

Caucus memberships


On May 2, 2014, Jordan introduced House Resolution 565 entitled Calling on Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., to appoint a special counsel to investigate the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups by the Internal Revenue Service that passed on May 7, 2014.[24]

In March 2017, Jordan criticized the newly introduced American Health Care Act, the Republican replacement bill for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, calling it an unacceptable form of "Obamacare Lite."[25] On May 4, 2017, he voted to pass a revised version of the legislation.[26][27]

On June 13, 2018, Jordan and Mark Meadows (R-NC) filed a resolution to compel the Department of Justice to provide certain documents to Congress relating to the ongoing congressional investigations of interference by Russia in the 2016 election. The resolution asserted that the DOJ was stonewalling congressional oversight and sought to give the DOJ seven days from its enactment to turn over documents related to both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller as well as various decisions made by the FBI during the 2016 presidential election. Jordan issued a press release that stated:

This resolution gives the DOJ seven days to turn over the documents that they owe Congress. Rod Rosenstein threatened congressional staff. When the bully picks on your little brother, you have to respond. It's time for House Leadership to stand up and pass this resolution.[28]

On July 25, 2018, Jordan and Mark Meadows introduced Articles of Impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who they accused of "intentionally withholding embarrassing documents and information, knowingly hiding material investigative information from Congress, various abuses of the FISA process, and failure to comply with congressional subpoenas, among others. Jordan stated that impeachment was necessary because:

The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It's time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress's constitutional oversight role.[29][30]

Political positions

According to The Dayton Daily News, Jordan "is known for being one of Congress' most conservative members."[31]

In Congress, Jordan is among the most conservative Republicans, earning a perfect score from the American Conservative Union.[32] He has voted consistently for pro-life legislation and was endorsed by Ohio Right to Life in 2012.[33] During the 112th Congress, he was one of 40 "staunch" members of the Republican Study Committee who frequently voted against Republican party leadership and vocally expressed displeasure with House bills.[34]

Jordan has been a leading critic of President Barack Obama's Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) program, advocating for its shutdown.[35]

Jordan has supported the continued production and upgrades of M1 Abrams tanks in his district.[36]

Asked by Anderson Cooper in April 2018 whether he had ever heard President Trump tell a lie, Jordan said "I have not" and "nothing comes to mind."[37] He also said, "I don't know that [Mr. Trump has ever] said something wrong that he needs to apologize for."[38]


While serving in the Ohio Senate, Jordan supported the Tax and Expenditure Limitation Amendment, a state constitutional amendment that would require a vote of the people to raise taxes or increase spending over certain limits.[39]


In July 2008, Jordan was the first member of Congress to sign the "No Climate Tax" pledge drafted by the conservative political advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, founded by the Koch brothers.[40]

In Congress, Jordan voted to open the Outer Continental Shelf to oil drilling, prevent the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases, and bar greenhouse gases from Clean Air Act rules. He voted against enforcing limits on carbon dioxide global warming pollution, tax credits for renewable electricity, tax incentives for renewable energy and energy conservation, and curtailing subsidies for oil and gas company exploration.[41]

Planned Parenthood

Jordan is against Planned Parenthood and supports ending Medicaid reimbursements to the organization.[42]

Pharmaceutical industry

In April 2019, Jordan warned pharmaceutical companies not to comply with a request for information sent by Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chair of the House Oversight Committee, about how pharmaceutical companies set prescription drug prices.[43][44][45] Jordan suggested that Cummings would leak cherry-picked information in an attempt to harm the stock prices of pharmaceutical companies.[43]

Trump administration, Special Counsel and FBI

Jordan has been a stalwart supporter of President Donald Trump.[46] In December 2017, Jordan sought to discredit the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.[47] Jordan questioned the impartiality of Mueller, and called on Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein to use his authority to disband the Mueller investigation or create a second special counsel to simultaneously investigate Mueller himself.[47] Rosenstein rejected the request, saying that he could not appoint another special counsel as there was not any credible allegation of any potential crime.[47]The New York Times noted that Republicans increasingly criticised Mueller's investigation after it "delivered a series of indictments to high-profile associates of the president and evidence that at least two of them are cooperating with the inquiry".[47] In July 2018, Jordan led efforts to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as a way to shut down the Special Counsel's investigation.[48] During a hearing on July 12, 2018, Jordan repeatedly interrupted FBI agent Peter Strzok while Strzok tried to explain that he couldn't answer specific questions in order to preserve the confidentiality of an ongoing investigation. Jordan's behavior caused committee Democrats to protest his dilatory tactics and to allow Strzok to respond. They also objected to Jordan's exceeding his allowed time for questioning. House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Republican Bob Goodlatte, admonished Jordan for his repeated interruptions of the witness.[49]

In July 2018, Jordan, along with Mark Meadows called on the Department of Justice to "review allegations that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena phone records and documents from a House Intelligence Committee staffer". In their written request, the two wrote that in his use of investigative powers, Rosenstein had retaliated "against rank-and-file (congressional) staff members", therefore abusing his authority.[50] Talking to John Catsimatidis on WNYM, Jordan said he would force a vote on the impeachment of Rosenstein if the DOJ does not deliver documents Congress requested.[51]

In March 2019, Jordan came under criticism from House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler on the grounds of anti-Semitic messagery on Twitter while urging Nadler to resist calls for presidential impeachment.[52][53]

During Robert Mueller's testimony to two congressional committees on July 24, 2019, Jordan asked Mueller why he never charged Joseph Mifsud with lying to the FBI while George Papadopoulos was charged for lying about Mifsud. Jordan said: "Mifsud is the guy who told Papadopoulos [about Russian dirt], he was the guy who started it all, yet when the FBI interviews him, he lies three times. You don't charge him." Mueller responded: "Well I can't get into it and it's obvious, I think, that we can't get into charging decisions."[54]

Trump administration, Presidential impeachment hearings

On Nov 8th, Republicans formally made Rep. Jim Jordan a temporary member of the House Intelligence Committee, allowing him to lead the defense for President Donald Trump's public impeachment hearings. GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted about the move for Jordan, stating that Jordan's position was temporary and that Rep Rick Crawford would rejoin the Intelligence Committee "when this Democrat charade is over."[55][56]

Jordan, in a combative style, appeared in televised meetings not wearing a customary jacket but instead attired in shirtsleeves and a tie.[15] He regularly interrupted testimony, brusquely retorting to testimony of witnesses.[15] He consistently ignored time limits, to the extent that Democratic Committee Chair Adam Schiff interjected as Jordan harangued former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch attempting to cut Jordan off after he exceeded his five-minute time limit for questioning. Schiff remonstrated, "My indulgence is wearing out."[15] Jordan responded, "Our indulgence wore out with you a long time ago, Mr. Chairman."[15] Afterward, Jordan repeated a Republican mantra: "The Democrats have never accepted the will of the American people." "They've been out to get the president since the day he was elected."[15]

2013 U.S. government shutdown

Jordan criticized Speaker John Boehner's plan to raise the debt ceiling. In 2010, Jordan was chair of the Republican Study Committee, and during the U.S. government shutdown of 2013, he was still considered its most powerful member.[57] That group was the primary proponent and executor of the Republican Congressional strategy to force a government shutdown, in order to force changes in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.[57]

Criticism and controversies

In a Politico article published October 29, 2017, John Boehner, former Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives, called Jordan "an asshole". Boehner said "Jordan was a terrorist as a legislator going back to his days in the Ohio house and senate."[58]

Jordan and Warren Davidson (R., Ohio) were the only members of the Ohio Congressional delegation that voted in October 2019 against a bipartisan resolution that passed the House 354-60 condemning President Donald Trump's unilateral withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Syria.[59][60]

On October 23, 2019, Jordan and two dozen other Republicans staged a protest that delayed a Trump impeachment inquiry hearing. The coordinated action disrupted the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence where Republican and Democratic congressional members planned to take testimony from Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Laura Cooper.[61] The group staged a sit-in outside the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) hearing room.[62][63] Curiously, some of the Republicans who participated already did have access to the hearings since the members of the House Oversight, Intelligence, and Foreign Affairs Committees were welcomed to attend and ask questions (which many did).[64]

In describing the "stand-in", Jordan said: "the members have just had it, and they want to be able to see and represent their constituents and find out what's going on."[65] The next day, Jordan appeared on Fox News and said that "Adam Schiff is doing this unfair, partisan process in secret and our members finally said, 'Enough'...We're sooo frustrated. They reached a boiling point and these guys marched in and said 'we want to know what's going on.'"[66] As a member of the Oversight Committee, Jordan had full and unfettered access to the hearing that he stood on a milkcrate to theatrically protest for the benefit of the assembled media.[67]

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson wrote to the House Sergeant-at-Arms about Jordan, Alabama Representative Bradley Byrne, and others, requesting that he take action regarding their "unprecedented breach of security." South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham admonished his House colleagues for their tactic, calling them "nuts" for having made a "run on the SCIF."[66][68] In the 116th Congress, the chair and twelve Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee were appointed by the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, who is an ex-officio member,[69] as is the House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, who appointed the ranking member, Devin Nunes, and eight other Republicans.[70] Each side gets equal time to question witnesses appearing before the committee.[71]

The Ohio State University abuse scandal

Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach with The Ohio State University's (OSU) wrestling program from 1987 to 1995.[72] Ohio State University began an independent investigation in April 2018[73] into allegations of sexual misconduct by the former wrestling team's physician, Richard Strauss; Strauss was the team physician during Jordan's tenure as assistant coach.[74][75] Strauss committed suicide in 2005.[76] In early June 2018, at least eight former wrestlers said that Jordan had been aware of, but did not respond to, allegations of sexual misconduct by Strauss.[77][78] Jim Jordan's locker was next to Strauss' and Jordan spent so much time in the locker room that he created and awarded a "King of the Sauna" certificate to the member of the team who spent the most time in the sauna "talking smack".[79]

In June 2018, whistleblower and former wrestling team member, Mike DiSabato, provided a videotaped interview[80] with Russ Hellickson that included several victims' allegations against Strauss. In the recorded interview, Hellickson stated: "I caught people having sex in our wrestling room, in our stairwell to the wrestling room, in the bathroom adjacent to our wrestling facility. It became a real problem... There were times when some of the athletes themselves would confront people and say, 'Get out of here. You're here all the time. You're watching me. I don't like it'."

In July 2018, Jordan's congressional office released a statement prepared by public relations firm in which Hellickson reportedly said "At no time while Jim Jordan was a coach with me at Ohio State did either of us ignore abuse of our wrestlers. This is not the kind of man Jim is, and it is not the kind of coach that I was."[81]

Former wrestling team members David Range,[82] DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts asserted that Jordan knew of Strauss's misconduct. No wrestlers have accused Jordan of sexual misconduct.[83][84] Jordan was named in a lawsuit against the university by four former wrestlers.[85]

Several former wrestlers, including ex-UFC fighter Mark Coleman, allege that Hellickson contacted two witnesses in an attempt to pressure them to support Jordan the day after they accused the congressman of turning a blind eye to alleged sexual abuse.[86] The former wrestlers said their ex-coach made it clear to them he was under pressure from Jordan to obtain statements of support from members of the team.[87]

Jordan has refused to cooperate with all of the investigations into Strauss.[88] Jordan described his accusers as "pawns in a political plot"[89] and insists that he did not even hear any locker room talk about Strauss or sexual abuse at OSU.[90] In response to Jordan's denials, DiSabato said: "I considered Jim Jordan a friend. But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn't know what was going on."[91] On July 13, 2018, the editorial board of the Cleveland Plain Dealer asserted that "Jim Jordan must acknowledge what he knew".[92]

In May 2019, DiSabato filed a Title IX lawsuit against OSU. In one count of the court papers, DiSabato claimed that Matthew Finkes, who is Jordan's second-cousin who works for the OSU, attempted to "intimidate and retaliate" against DiSabato by posting a mugshot of him and suggesting that a local news station look into his background, that Finkes posted his social security number on social media and called him a "rat" on a local radio show.[93][94] DiSabato claims that OSU was aware of this but did not punish him. The Title IX lawsuit against the university was filed by attorneys Michael Wright and Dennis Mulvihill on behalf of DiSabato and 36 unnamed former OSU wrestlers, football players and other athletes.[95]

In 2019, DiSabato shared text messages with NBC News that were corroborated by another former wrestler[96] indicating that Jim Jordan; Russ Hellickson, and high school wrestling coach Jeff Jordan (Jim Jordan's younger brother)[97] conspired to engage in witness tampering and intimidation when they called Coleman and Coleman's parents to pressure Coleman to recant his earlier accusation that Jordan was aware of the abuse.[96]

In November 2019, a retired wrestling referee filed a lawsuit alleging that he had warned Jordan and Hellickson about Strauss' misconduct.[98][99] Jordan promptly dismissed the referee as "another person making a false statement".[100]

Personal life

Jordan and his wife Polly live near Urbana in central Champaign County. They were introduced by her brothers. Jim Jordan explained in an interview with the Washington Examiner in 2014 that he competed in wrestling with Polly's brothers. He told the newspaper, "I decided it would be a lot more fun wrestling with Polly than her brothers." They started dating when he was 13 and she was 14.[101] They have four children and two grandchildren.[102]
