"larry nassar" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"That's what I got in return. All right, we're going to talk about what happened to you at Levi's in a moment. We're going to talk about the Larry Nassar scandal and whether it's reflexive of a broader problem inside the sporting community in America. But let's look at that first book. I'm curious because choked up was your personal experience as a gymnast, why was it wrong for you to write your story? And even before the NASA scandal told us the truth of the depth of abuse, at least in that one sport, is this like a club? Is this like the mafia? Is there a code of omerta and you're not allowed to talk about what it's like to be a gymnast? Apparently, I did not know that. You know, I thought it was an open secret, but apparently it was a secret secret and keeping those secrets within the community. This closed off community of elite gymnastics and that broader Olympic movement because I think it takes place in sports outside of gymnastics as well. They're willing to sacrifice children for money and medals. Honestly, you know, the image presented by USA gymnastics since these shiny, happy little pixies bouncing around. That brings in sponsorship dollars. They win Olympic medals and that brings in more. If the general public knew the way that these little girls and young women were treated, starved, forced to train on broken bones and in some instances, sexually assaulted, I don't think the sponsors would come to the table with money. And in fact, we saw most of their sponsors leave after the Larry Nassar case broke. So it was really protecting the adult sacrificing children to protect adults. Well, that theme of sacrificing children continued into what happened with you at Levi. So tell us your story of what it was, what awful sin you committed under the conditions of the pandemic here in America. Well, I lived in San Francisco at the time, which is a very left leaning city, and it had very much aligned with my values or what I thought they were up until that time. But in March 2020, when the schools shut and San Francisco was the first city in America to shut schools, they also shut playgrounds for close to ten months. Basically, anything kids could do was not allowed. And I was very outspoken about this being wrong from day one from March 13th, 2020, even before that, really. I asked questions on social media. I attended school board meetings. I wrote op eds. In defense of children, it was very clear from the first that the risk was very age stratified and that this was going to cause more harm for our kids. While being completely ineffective in quote unquote, slowing the spread. And in San Francisco's school stay closed for 18 months, disrupted for two and a half years, and we are seeing the impacts of that now. And like I said, I was very outspoken about this. I was warned, time and again, that I needed to stop. So let's get into the details. So tell us the first instance, what were you told by the powers that be? And what was their justification for curtailing your First Amendment rights? So I did not get a call until September of 2020. So I've been at it for 6 months and hadn't heard anything. And to be honest, I was sort of waiting and wondering when I might. My peer, the head of corporate communications called me, we were all working virtual, so nobody popped by the office..

Sebastian Sits Down With Former Elite Gymnast Jennifer Sey
"Say, welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me. Happy to be here. All right, so let's talk a little bit about you first. Because you have this amazing athletic career, but you also have this life in corporate America. So explain to us those two lives, how they melded and how you ended up at the top of one of the most famous companies in the world. Yeah, absolutely. I had an unusual childhood. I was an elite gymnast. As you mentioned, I was I made my first national team at ten years old and was on the national team until I was 18. One, the title of national champion in 1986. I suffered a lot of terrible injuries, a broken femur, femur, too broken ankles. I trained on broken bones. And ultimately, I left the sport despite my successes feeling fairly broken and ashamed. It's a very cruel and abusive coaching culture. And ultimately, 20 years after I left the sport, I continued to suffer from that night. And that's why I wrote the book. It was a memoir and it was really just my personal story, but it was reflective of the broader coaching culture. And I will tell you, it was not well received by the Olympic movement in the gymnastics community at the time. They were not ready for what I had to say, and I was smeared for the first time as a grifter and a liar, but ultimately was redeemed in 20 2018 when Larry Nassar went to prison for life. And for those that don't know, he was the team doctor for Team USA, gymnastics for over 30 years and sexually abused hundreds and hundreds of young athletes. And it was known by the powers that be in the sport, and they brushed it under the rug. They sacrificed children. So ultimately I was redeemed and folks came to my side to say they had agreed with me all along, which was a lie, but you know, I welcome them to the fight. But I started working at Levi's in 1999. I spent most of my professional life there. I was an entry level marketing assistant when I started worked my way up to chief marketing officer and then ultimately brand president. And I loved the company and the culture and the product. I'd worn the product since I was 6 years old. I traveled to Moscow in 1985 for the first ever goodwill games and packed my suitcase with lots of 5 O ones and traded them with Russian athletes. I mean, they were a symbol of freedom the world over.
Julie Kelly: The Jury Saw Through DOJ & FBI's Entrapment
"You have people on both sides who really saw what happened with the spygate case the collusion case the failure to really do much of anything about antifa and BLM And yet this focused hyper attention on January 6th and candidly people some people just walked in open doors And it just seems like they're credibility is so bad that I don't know how we go forward as a constitutional republic without a major house cleaning because how do you bring a case now I mean juries just don't trust them This January does excuse me the Michigan case was just a total repudiation of their credibility in court It was stunning Dan if you think now consider first the defense attorneys had both hands tied behind their back to judge who did a very good job nonetheless sided with the government on numerous occasions to prevent the jury from seeing hundreds of communications between the FBI and their informants that would show this entrapment If the government threatened several defense witnesses with extra charges so they ended up pleading the 5th the DoJ had everything going for it in this jury still saw right through this entrapment case because the entire defense argument rested on FBI entrapment and that is what this jury concluded The other thing to remember in Michigan is that the local news about what happened with Larry Nassar the Michigan state gymnastics coach who got away for years of molesting sexually assaulting young girls and women top U.S. Olympic gymnasts and the FBI including the Detroit field office completely dust this case So they already had not just national the FBI national lack of credibility but certainly this was a local issue in the state of Michigan And I wonder how much that contributed to the jury's view Of this corrupt and competent agency

"larry nassar" Discussed on Democracy Now! Audio
"This is democracy now democracy now dot org the warrant piece report. I mean goodman. Some of gymnastics biggest stars offered scathing testimony wednesday to the senate judiciary committee about the fbi. Failure to stop serial. Sexual abuser usa gymnastics. Doctor larry nassar lawyers say in the time between when the fbi was. I told of nassar's crimes and it's two thousand sixteen arrest. Nassar abused another one hundred twenty people. Fbi director christopher wray apologized to the gymnasts in the senate hearing last week. The fbi fired an agent involved in the investigation into nassir. Both the gymnasts and senators on the judiciary committee called out justice department leadership for failing to appear at wednesday's hearing attorney general merrick. Garland is expected to testify next month. This is the testimony of simone biles. The four time olympic gold medalist who is widely considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time over the course of my gymnastics career. I have one twenty five world championship medals in seven olympic medals for team. Usa that record means so much to me. and i am proud of my representation of this nation through gymnastics. I am also a survivor of sexual abuse. And i believe without a doubt that the circumstances that led to my abuse and allowed it to continue our directly the result of the fact that the organizations created by congress to oversee and protect me as an athlete usa gymnastics and the united states olympic and paralympic committee committee failed to do their jobs. Nelson mandela once. Said there can be. There can be no keener revelation of a society soul than the way in which it treats its children it is the power of that statement that compels and empowers me to be here in front of you today. I don't want another young gymnasts olympic athlete or any individual to experience the horror that i and hundreds of others have endured before during and continuing to this day in the wake of the larry nassar abuse to be clear. Sorry take time to be clear. I blame larry. Nassar ally also blame an entire system that enabled perpetrated his abuse. Usa gymnastics in the united states olympic and paralympic committee committee knew that i was abused by their official team doctor. Long before i was ever made aware of their knowledge in may of two thousand fifteen rhonda faye and the former head of usa gymnastics. Women's program was told by my friend and teammate maggie nicols that she suspected i too was a victim. I didn't understand the magnitude of what all was happening until the indianapolis star published article in the fall of two thousand sixteen entitled former usa gymnastics doctor accused of abuse yet while i was a member of the two thousand sixteen. Us olympic team neither usa g us opec nor the fbi. Ever contacted me or my parents while others had been informed and investigations were ongoing. I had been left to wonder why. I was not told until after the rio games. This is the largest cases of sexual abuse in the history of american sport. In though there have been a fully independent investigation of the fbi's handling of the case neither us ag nor uso. Have ever been made the subject of the same level of scrutiny. These are the entities entrusted with the protection of our sport and our athletes and yet it feels like questions of responsibility and organizational failures remain unanswered as you pursue the answers to those questions. I asked that your work guided by the same question that rachel did hollander and many others have asked. How much is a little girl worth. I sit before you today to raise my voice to that no little girl messenger. Why the athletes up this table and the countless others needlessly suffered under nasser's guys of medical treatment which we continue to endure. Today we suffered and continue to suffer because no one fbi us ag or the us opec did what was necessary to protect us. We have been failed and we deserve answers nassar's where he belongs but those who enabled him deserve to be held accountable if they are not. I am convinced that this will continue to happen to others. Across olympic sports in reviewing the report it truly feels like the fbi turned a blind eye to us and went out of its way to help protect usa g. and uso. A message needs to be sent. If you allow predator to harm children the consequences will be swift and severe. Enough is enough. That's simone biles. The four time olympic gold medalist testifying before the senate judiciary committee wednesday about the. Fbi's failure to stop serial sexual abuser usa. Gymnastics doctor now. Imprisoned larry nassar byles mentioned rachel. Den hollander who in two thousand sixteen was the first gymnast to publicly. Speak out against nassar. On thursday rachel denhellender spoke to democracy. Now i'm so proud of the athletes who testified in the light that they're shutting in these dark spaces but to see over and over and over again the depth of systemic failure and just the incredible damage that was done to them and all of the survivors. Who came after. They reported when that didn't mean to happen is very heavy burden to their. I think something we need to be asking. You're watching this unfold is what are we not seeing. Because the reality is most arrives sexual assaults. Who report will tell you that. This is a story that they could tell too. It is very difficult to get law enforcement to take reports of sexual assault seriously to pursue the case with diligence to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. And we need to start looking at what we saw yesterday and ask what. We're not seen what happens to the survivors. Who don't have an army of five hundred. What happens to the survivors. Who don't have olympians headlining case and raising the profile of the athol Gross negligence and corruption taking place in our system. In fifteen months. The fbi did absolutely nothing except allow over one hundred little girls to continue being abused so we need to be looking at what has to change in this case. It's not just a problem with this case we've got to start asking what's gotta change in the system so that survivors that we don't see aren't going through what these women went through and have justice system that they can truly rely on. Those are hard questions. But they've got to be asked and these words are cheap if they're not followed by action. That's rachel denhellender. The first gymnast to speak out. Publicly against larry nassar for more. We're joined by mark aleisha. Who done hollander. I contacted in two thousand sixteen when he was part of the investigative team. The indianapolis star. She told him quote. I'm willing to do anything you need. I want this to end marks team than broke the story about dr nassar's abuse. He is now director of university. Communications at indiana state university. Welcome back to democracy now mark. We took you just after nasser's trial and sentencing. That remarkable moment when one.
"larry nassar" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Asked to investigate. You know I i am really thought. So much about this notion of twisties That she had during the the olympics in japan. And it to me. If it's not a direct consequence is certainly such a powerful metaphor that it operates on the same level but literally what a twisty is. Is that you separate your mind and your body separate as you're flying through the air so that you have no notion of where you will land it and you basically lose complete control of your body. You can talk to a thousand survivors and you will discover that when you are being invaded by somebody else. When somebody enters your body without consent particularly as a child having had that experience when i'm from five to ten you leave your body you disassociate. You have no idea where you're literally spinning in air and you have no idea where you're going to land and you feel at that moment that you have lost control of your body and it takes many many many years to feel like you have agency over your body again. So i know that's going off on a little divergent. I feel like an apology would be looking at all those things. why why. why did simone biles. Why was she unable to participate. You know the consequences of sexual abuse. Don't happen the day after it happened. Fifty years later they could happen three weeks later. That can happen ten years later. They the the trauma lives in your body. It's like it's like It's almost like some dormant handgrenade that can get triggered by some experience and just blow up. Intention can do it. Stress can do it. memory can do it. It can just blow up that experience in your body where you suddenly become. I remember hearing the story of a nurse who had been abused when she was a child and one day she. Her body just went completely numb. She became paralyzed. And no one can figure it out and finally the uncovered that she and her sisters had been being abused by her father her whole childhood but it didn't happen to forty years later that the consequences of that came out. I appreciate your discussion of the twisties. It is one hundred percent. How i read that at the time as a survivor. It's what sounded like to me that dissociation that lack of trust in your own judgment in your own body Knowing that she was the only survivor of nassar's abuse who was at the tokyo olympics and knowing that her family was not there and it felt like Like i wanted. I knew that all of us who've experienced our own personal twisties even if we're not gymnasts Felt and heard that. And so i appreciate you acknowledging it and making that clear have one more. What i think is a little bit of a tough question. But i i'm so moved by By your book by the apology. I want to. I feel like you're you're a safe person. Go here with the so. We heard Director ray call. Larry nassar a monster uncertainly especially given what you've just laid out. There's no question. The effects of his abuse are monstrous at the same time. Being a student of dr my angelo's she taught us never to call. Even the most horrifying acts that are done by humans The act of monsters because she wanted us to remember that all of us are human and in being human we are capable of great evil and of great good and that we have to face that is humans who are doing this. You actually wrote a book from the perspective of your father. You stepped in to him. You try to have some level of empathy. Even as you forced his departed spirit to to account for the abuse. I'm wondering how you think about that. Issue of monstrosity. Will i. i agree with my angelou. And i agree with hannah. Iran's you know that the evil is usually pretty mundane and each of us has capacity to do terrible things and if it were only a few quote monstrous men who were raping and abusing women. One billion women on the planet wouldn't be beaten or raped in their lifetimes so we. Oh it's pretty much part of the human condition. I i would. I think doing that investigation. My father led me into the inside of my father to look at a culture that supported my father that bread. My father that encouraged my father to become a person who had so much asymmetrical and unleashed unfettered power. Right that he could do what he wanted. And i think one of the things all of these terrible terrible cases of young women have shown us is. It's not just the larry nassar's i'm just gonna say this. It's all the enablers who are hard of this story. The enablers who the fbi the us the us otc. All the people around larry nassar who were being. He served that agency and he got these girls who were who were doing really the and winning all these things but had absolutely no protection as they were being used right. And i think one of the things we've seen in these last years whether it's trump or weinstein or epstein or cosby or cuomo right. It's a community of enablers that keep the predator going for years even after even after they're called out an off and sometimes after they're even prosecuted and in the case of cuomo he was accused by eleven women of sexual harassment and we had times up. Who theory was to support victims bringing perpetrators through tile and executives. Were among those who advise. The governor's office on a drafter op at to seek to discredit a victim right. So we know that this proximity to power changes people's perspective and often silences people. And i will say that whoever larry nassar is he was made in patriarchy. Do you know what i mean. It was created in patriarchy. He was bred here in his family in the culture. Everything around him and he really was allowed to. And when you think of the years he did this you think of thousands of girls how long this went on how many people must've turned away. Made excuses said larry nassar's career and his standing and his power is more important than thousands of girls. And i just wanna say that. Line that simone biles said yesterday you know what is the life of a little girl worth to me. That should be the cry on this culture. you know. it's certainly the cry of my life. It's what got me into devoting my life to any violence against women and girls. Because i didn't feel that the life of a little girl matter to anyone and the kind of just silence and the kind of desperation. I felt as a child a little girl having nobody to reach out to nobody to turn to. I don't want any other little girl in our culture to.

"To too many people. Let's start. I mean we're where do you wanna start this week benita. Well let's talk about simone a little bit. So i think most people know that she withdrew from competition and it was an emotional issue. That of physical issue. I would argue that. It was medical issue but It it wasn't physical. It was like you know the routine that she does are so complicated and requires so much concentration and the consequences of Misstep or miscalculation could be seriously devastating. The the the vault that she did that was her final fault She was supposed to do two and a half twist showing did one and a half and you may think that's not a big deal. She could've killed herself or paralyzed. Store herself are yeah because she just didn't have any more spoons. I mean i can't imagine the pressure that she has been under. She's like the weight of the entire team has been put on her shoulders. And not only that. I mean she is one of the only remaining survivors in the sport of the abuse. That larry nassar committed so she said to hold a kkob in interview on. Nbc that one of the main reason she came back was to try to ensure some accountability. Like if there wasn't a remaining survivor in the sport they would have just brushed. Aside in her opinion yes he's not wrong well. There's been so little accountability. For larry nassar and the others that perpetuated and covered up and were complicit in the abuse. You know the. Fbi report describes outright lies to the internal investigator but the justice department has declined to offer any consequences or charge him. I'm talking about Abbott and there's black men appears to have lied outright to congress so the olympics is a huge trigger for nassar's victims and here is simone trying to compete and the whole atmosphere is a trigger for her about the abuse that she suffered and she isn't getting any support from anybody there. They're really hazard than do more right. And it's your responsibility. Were counting on you. But they're still hasn't been a full-fledged law enforcement and get investigation into the crimes against children at the karolyi ranch where they trained with Larry nassar and the only explanation is because of Misogyny because they were girls they were girls and the people doing it were men. And don't they know that.

"The goat the greatest of all time. The light that there was extraordinary pressure for her to go but team usa gymnastics side is still dealing with the fall of larry nassar who abused the girls. And simone biles apparently was in the camp of people who were affected in some way. By larry nassar. And we're still seeing the ball out of that. And if anything this is part of the chickens coming home to roost for the gymnasts and the gymnastics coaches and the leadership of the gymnastic side of the olympics who turned a blind eye to what he was doing and let it continue on for a while. I just think that we got to be mindful of the situation. And that it's more complicated than you. Or i may think but i also think that we don't necessarily have to go out and condemn her and attacker. And it's just very predictable. How everybody came to their opinion without even considering the data out there. There's something else. Though that i think we need to consider here. And this goes back to the media. Not just nbc here but a lot of it is nbc nbc. When they tell the story of the olympics they would rather give you the sympathetic bios of the olympians than actually show you the frigging sport. You're in the middle of watching women's volleyball. You can't do that. Because they're not in burqas so the feminists don't want you to actually watch women's volleyball so they switch over to the sympathetic profile of one of the volleyball player. She was on the court right then. Who you're cheering for. And now they want to tell you all about the this athlete and then they do this. Mobiles the profiles of her the covers of magazines of her they elevate her and the elevator in such a way that you wish to root for her they make ur seem invulnerable and then she goes out there and can't compete and she lets a lotta people down and there is an extraordinary level of pressure that day themselves put on her. It does of course give a twist to the olympics that she's out team. Usa has done fantastic. And it's just. I listen i i said. This was soccer that You root against america root.

I mean it in the traditional sense not the feminist sense so it has come to light that the fbi new about the extraordinarily serious allegations against larry nassar who was sexually abusing members of the us gymnastics team and they didn't pursue it so in the months before other law enforcement agencies pursued nassar according to civil court filings about seventy women and girls were victimized. So that's between the time when the fbi was. I told her the allegations and win. Michigan officials arrested him on the basis of separate information. Seventy women and girls could have been protected if the fbi had properly investigated the allegations against larry nassar and guess what when they were confronted about it. The fbi officials gave misleading or false answers. They denied it and one top agent. Who did not act on. The allegations was looking for a fricken job with the. Us olympic committee more proof. The system doesn't work for women a they didn't go after nassar until they had somebody other than a woman. Make these allegations it was. They hid the.

Beam she has a two layouts with a half twist at the end on-floor she had which is beautiful. She has a triple double on floor which is to flips and three swin so three three sixty degree turns i to just pause on that. Just let's let's just think through what that what that moves so for people. That may not have seen this. I wanna give a somehow given oral description that will do justice to how amazing these moves are so we don't just tell people go to youtube so she does a floor. Pass round off backhand seraing many she does to gain momentum then she does bag she launches into the air. And what happens with first thing that happens is out of what is considered the best handspring in the history of the sport which gains her so much forward momentum and so much speed and so much power. She gets so high into the air. You know it's it's so much fun to watch the men's bef- men's meet before hers because she's getting higher than most of the men and then that allows her the time to perform to backflips and on that first backflips. She's spinning twice so two full rotations and then another backflip with another full rotation and sheaves completes all of that with time to spot the ground and it is rare to see her land-short if anything she tends to land with so much power and so much force that she rebounds So far out of bounds which is a deduction But watching her last night she was. She was spot on man not a not a tow out of bounds. I wanna go back to talk about how her story intertwines with the way that gymnastics is changing because it turns out one of the reasons perhaps by she's become so extraordinary is that she did not train exactly in the same way that everyone else up training she for instance started quote unquote late at six years old. And you want to go for some of the other differences How she came up. Yeah one of the one of the beautiful things about simone. Biles being the most famous gymnast slash athlete in the world.

"How important she was to actually believe it was another thing and if you remember in twenty eighteen she i tweeted right before larry nassar's hearing once she realized she too had been abused by him and was a survivor she. She tweeted this out and as part of her tweet she said. I can't believe as i plan my return to the gym to attempt to make my second olympic team that i will have to return to the place where i was abused for years referring to the karolyi ranch in houston and there have been calls to shut down the ranch. Usa gymnastics was planning to buy it. That was going to be their legacy and this was going to continue to be the training facility for generations to come and they cut ties the next day and she you know she realized in that moment everyone realized while you know she she has a powerful voice and she wields it with responsibility but she knows that when she tweets something whether it is about a new president who you know mary. Bono was hired as usa gymnastics president and she tweeted out A photo of her scratching out her nike logo on her shoes. After colin kaepernick was picked up by nike and simone tweeted out. Oh it's not like we needed a better president or more sponsors and bono was gone for days later. I mean there. There was a series of these kind of events. Were she realized. I i have a voice. I by using it. I give all of these other gymnasts permission to use their voices and she has created such change. E- even you know a small things. I remember working on the podcast. Having a gymnast from the eighty eight team say she remembers the day. She i saw simone biles tweet a photo of pizza and she texted all of her friends from the eighties and said oh my gosh. Can you imagine we live in a world. Now where a gymnast feels comfortable telling the world. She eats pizza or showing a picture of herself on vacation. Because of course you're on when you're not in the gym you're supposed to be sleeping or a picture of her bikini or with her boyfriend and as small as that was by showing her life and the real side of her life give all these other women permission to do the same. And i think also the other thing that it did. Was you re if everything simone does is authentic then when she is tweeting about social justice when she is tweeting about The foster care system. It makes those tweets and those statements equally authentic. Let's take another quick break with friends like these is brought to you by magic spoon..

"Kim, You may be familiar with this story of this of Larry Nassar. He's been convicted. I mean, he's in prison now. He's been convicted. But you're familiar doctor, though that was convicted of of sex crimes against the gym nests. Yeah, yeah, USA gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. So this is just such a horrible story. There was an inspector General Department of Justice Inspector general report that said that, um, in the FBI's in Indianapolis Field office, where the crime was first reported, the people just didn't take it seriously. They said the quote is That they failed to respond to the NASA allegations with quote the utmost seriousness and urgency that they deserved and required that the field office made numerous and fundamental errors when they did not respond when they did respond, and they violated multiple FBI policies when undertaking their investigative activity. It's 119 Page report. I haven't had a chance to, um To view the entire thing, but the number I mean, but this is really offensive. I'm not sure why they didn't take this seriously. So there are officials who go in there and they say, Look, we've had a complaint and this is USA Gymnastics. They reported they went into the Indianapolis field office. And they said, You know, this is bad. We've had a complaint. And they talked about who the girl was. She was underage. What Her complaint was Larry Nassar. In their investigation, Larry Nassar had provided a thumb drive that had video of the procedure. I put in quotes that he was performing on these girls that may have been misinterpreted. Um, the FBI did give a cursory glance at that. But what this girl was alleging And in her, uh Interviews with with authorities. She was completely consistent on on what had happened. What she was all I mean, he was. It was awful. I bread. I mean, I've read part of it. I read. They don't have this in the news accounts, but I read parts of it, and it's awful. I mean, it's awful, including he would turn the lights off so it would be dark. When he would perform his so called procedure which included, um him, penetrating them with his fingers, and they would hear him breathing heavily. And this girl, you know the one who was found with the FBI, she said. I felt like he was sexually aroused as he was doing this and that he was doing it for sexual pleasure and that it wasn't a legitimate procedure that he was doing. And in some cases, he was very aggressive about it. And so it wasn't until later, it was reported to another FBI office that they and then they contacted Indianapolis and then it became a major news story and the pressure from the news media cause the, uh the The Annapolis field office, you know, to start taking a look at what they had. And it was. I mean, it was terrible. They just they. They gave cursory glance at that They didn't really pay attention. They did one phone interview with her. They kind of just dropped the ball. They lied about having referred it to a different jurisdiction because they said they didn't feel like it was within their jurisdiction that it may not be federal crimes that they were talking about. And in the meantime, Between the time that she first made the complaint and the FBI was notified and the time that Larry Nassar was arrested. There were 70 more women and girls who were molested. I'm sorry, is not enough from the FBI. I mean, it's gross. You know what the, uh what The lawyer is asking for the lawyer for, um, for the first girl? No, you know what he actually represented more than 150 of the women and girls that he sexually abused. His name is John Manley. He's urging the Justice Department to criminally charge the agents who mishandled the investigation, he said. Those responsible need to be held to account with all the force the law can provide. And he said this, he said, when an ordinary American citizen lies to the FBI in the course of an investigation, they are prosecuted. Yet no charges have been filed against anyone. As a result of this five year investigation, the FBI betrayed generations of Olympic champions. It betrayed the hundreds of Children, Nasser savaged, and it betrayed the American People's Trust when they finally arrested him. They had secured a warrant, and they went into his his home and they found massive amounts of child pornography there. And that was the thing that finally I think, finally moved them to realize Just how seriously how serious this was now, I don't know that any of the pornography actually showed images. Of these girls, But, yeah, he pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges. He was in possession of them, but whether he was creating that, I don't know. Um he also he pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct, using his profession as a cover to sexually abuse his patients. He's 57. He's serving a 40 to 174 year state prison sentence after 156 women and girls said he abused them over the course of 20 years. This is despicable. But do you think that the FBI itself should face criminal charges? It's a hard one. But I will say that I'm not surprised because if you look at the normal sentence for rape It's not nearly enough. I don't think law enforcement or society takes sex crimes against girls or women seriously enough. I don't either. I don't either. It just you know, they find every every reason imaginable not to believe a person and and it's hard In some cases. It's a hard crime to prosecute, you know, depending on what the abuses If they don't have DNA evidence, and that they don't have physical evidence that show tears and things like that. That would, um, you know, support a charge of rape than what they have too many times is, he said, she said, and that is very, very difficult to prosecute. And if it's a case where there is no DNA evidence, either the person used a condom or they didn't you know they digitally penetrated and it wasn't you know. Anal penetration. Um, then it's so hard because almost always there's nobody else present when it happened. But when you have large numbers of these girls who are coming forward with the same story about this guy and this girl when she was first interviewed, she was so credible. I mean, she just She was consistent with everything, she said. Everything she had to say about him and what was happening, and it was so specific about what she was talking about that it just seemed to give her so much credit. Ability. Um, you know, I know the FBI has a lot of things to investigate. At that time, this report that came into the FBI. It was one girl who was making the report. And this was somebody who was a physician. And you know the thing that he provided to them that showed his controversial treatment. Um they said, seemed like a You know, it wasn't that big a deal. But you know what It seemed like to me and I don't know that this is what happened, But this is what I think happened. I think what the FBI did was They looked at that as if that was evidence. They looked at that as if what he the alleged perp was providing to them. Was sufficient to negate what the girl was telling him. That tape wasn't of her. That tape he made showed something that he called his controversial examination method. And it was supposed to somehow relieve pain, which it didn't do, obviously, but maybe it allowed him a certain relief. Um, so I don't know why the FBI didn't investigate. But it went to these agents, The agents did a little bit of footwork. It was turned over to the special agent in charge of that field office and thus the sacks said, And he lied about this, that he referred it, that he sent it to a different jurisdiction and he never to do that. And so he is under the gun. The FBI is not defending him. They're saying he violated the policies. He lied, But this is not the way that you treat. Um Allegations of this sort. And of course, it became huge because she wasn't alone, which is so often when it comes to these perps who, um, target Children. They prey on Children. They don't prey on just one they prey on Children ended up position like he had. He had this enormous access to Children, and he had enormous access to their bodies because he was a physician. What do we tell our kids? We say if someone's hurting you if you're in danger, go to the police. Go, you know, go to law enforcement and in this case, they failed them. Well, the guy, she reported, she reported it to the officials at the USA Olympics as I understand it, and they're the ones who talked with her interviewed her believe what she had to say and took it to the FBI. Um And then you know, the FBI is who dropped the ball. They just dropped the ball on this. And so he just continued his vile acts against these girls..

Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar will spend the rest of his life in jail because of the sexual crimes he committed. But could the FBI have saved more athletes from abuse? Justice Department inspector General released a report this week claiming the FBI failed to investigate abuse allegations against Nassar and then lied about their failures when confronted. Devlin Barrett is covering it for the Washington Post, and he spoke with co most Tom Cutler. How long ago had the FBI been made aware of Nasser's attacks on these young girls and women? So the key time frame and all this is July of 2015 when folks from USA Gymnastics? Bring to the FBI allegations against Dr Nassar and basically the the FBI does very little with that information. And nothing happens to Nasser for almost a year more when, when he is arrested by state authorities based on different evidence. So how many athletes do we know how many were abuse between when the FBI was tipped off? And when he was arrested by Michigan officials? Yes, we do. According to court filings, it's about 70 girls and women, So it's not a small number and you know it's it's, uh, Eight or nine month period when the FBI just wasn't pursuing it aggressively this inspector general confrontation of the FBI. How do they react to this Well, FBI leadership now says that they agree with the findings and that they were and that they are fixing some of their procedures to take this these kind of allegations more seriously. But in the course of the investigation, the inspector general says the agents who are in charge, including the FBI agent running the Indianapolis office, the supervisor agent working under him. Basically lied to them about what they did, and tried to blame others for what the inspector general says. We're clearly the FBI's own failing. Will there be heads rolling because of this? At the FBI. The senior FBI agent who was criticized in this document has already retired, Uh the Justice Department has decided not to prosecute either of them for their alleged false statements. So as as one of the victims lawyer said to me, you know, these guys get away with it. They get away with lying. They get away with, um, scaling these women and girls. Um, but obviously, But Congress still wants to know more about this, And they announced that they're going to hold a hearing to examine more deeply how the FBI failed here more to come on this story, then.
