Two former Ohio State wrestlers are sharing text messages they received asking them to walk back their statements against Ohio Republican congressman Jim Jordan.  

Dunyasha Yetts and Mike DiSabato say messages from ex-coach Russ Hellickson were sent under pressure from Jordan. The texts ask the men to recant and support Jordan's claims he was unaware of the sexual abuse allegations against the late former team doctor Richard Strauss.  Jordan recently announced he will seek to become the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
