    Thank you for sharing the NYT article; I hadn't seen it. I'm glad to know that Laurie is still competing and hope she will be part of this year's US Olympic Gymnastics Team. Laurie was my favorite in the 2016 games.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI made numerous serious errors in investigating sexual abuse allegations against former USA Gymnastics national team doctor Larry Nassar and didn’t treat the case with the “utmost seriousness,” the Justice Department’s inspector general said Wednesday. The FBI acknowledged conduct that was “inexcusable and a discredit” to America’s premier law enforcement agency.

    The long-awaited watchdog report raises serious questions about how the department and the FBI handled the case and it highlights serious missteps at the FBI between the time the allegations were first reported and Nassar’s arrest.

    The inspector general’s investigation was spurred by allegations that the FBI failed to promptly address complaints made in 2015 against Nassar. USA Gymnastics had conducted its own internal investigation and then the organization’s then-president, Stephen Penny, reported the allegations to the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis. But it took months before the bureau opened a formal investigation…

    All of this just sickens me. Also, for anyone interested, one of the Simone vs Herself episodes has her talking more about the after effects for her. It’s a fb series. Short episodes but very interesting.

    Simone Biles shares message on Larry Nassar abuse after opting out of Olympics

    Biles’ apparent endorsement of a message, penned by former gymnast Andrea Orris, shines a light on what the athlete is going through and the potential factors that led her to drop out of the competition, which she has yet to publicly comment about.

    “It makes me so frustrated to see comments about Simone not being mentally tough enough or quitting on her team,” the message states.

    “We are talking about the same girl who was molested by her team doctor throughout her entire childhood and teen years, won the world all-around championship title while passing a kidney stone, put her body through an extra year of training through the pandemic, added so much difficulty to her routines that the judges literally do not know how to properly rate her skills bc they are so ahead of her time,” the statement continues.

    Biles, Reisman set to testify on FBI's Larry Nassar investigation (detroitnews.com)

    Washington — Gymnast superstars Simone Biles and Aly Raisman are set to testify Wednesday before the Senate about the failures by the FBI to properly investigate allegations against former Michigan State University sports doctor Larry Nassar.

    Raisman and Biles were among Nassar’s more than 500 reportedvictims. Raisman has strongly criticized USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee for their handling of the Nassar case.

    Also on the witness panel will be gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Maggie Nichols, as well as FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose report earlier this year faulted agency field offices for not responding “with the urgency that the allegations required” and for making "fundamental errors when it did respond." Nichols was the first documented gymnast to report Nassar’s abuse to USA Gymnastics in June 2015 — a report submitted by her coach...

    NBC News can confirm that Michael Langeman, one of the lead FBI agents accused of failing to properly investigate former USA Gymnastics doctor and team trainer Larry Nassar, has been fired by the FBI. The news was first reported by The Washington Post

    "I want everyone to know that this didn't happen to Gymnast #2 or Athlete A, it happened to me, Maggie Nichols."
    "The survivors of Larry Nassar have a right to know why their well-being was placed in jeopardy by these individuals who chose not to do their jobs."

    "This was very clear, cookie cutter pedophilia and abuse and this is important because I told the FBI all of this and they chose to falsify my report and to not only minimize my abuse but silence me yet again."
    “I told them(the FBI) that I woke up totally naked with him(Larry Nassar) on top of me.” “I told them he molested me right before I won my gold medal.” “I told the FBI all of this and they chose to falsify my report.” McKayla Maroney
    "Is that all?", McKayla Maroney says the FBI told her after she spent hours telling the FBI excruciating details of hours and days of abuse.

    ALY RAISMAN:

    The Gymnasts all said they do know gymnasts who were abused by Nassar after July 2015, "when the FBI did nothing." Raisman: "I cannot tell you how horrifying it is to meet young girls who look up to me ... tell me that they went to see Larry Nassar because of me."


    "The FBI made me feel like my abuse didn't count and it wasn't a big deal."

    "The FBI and others within both USAG and USOPC knew that Nassar molested children and did nothing to restrict his access."

    'We have been failed': Simone Biles breaks down in tears recounting Nassar's sexual abuse (nbcnews.com)

    Biles and three other U.S. gymnasts are testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee at an oversight hearing about how the FBI mishandled the Nassar case.

    WASHINGTON — Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, considered one of the world’s greatest gymnasts, broke down in tears Wednesday as she shared her story as a survivor of being sexual abused by USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

    Biles, who has won 25 world championship medals and seven Olympic medals for Team USA, said in her opening statement that she believes the abuse happened because organizations created by Congress to protect her as an athlete — USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee — “failed to do their jobs.”...

    Biles: FBI turned 'blind eye' to reports of gymnasts' abuse (xfinity.com)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles told Congress in forceful testimony Wednesday that federal law enforcement and gymnastics officials turned a “blind eye” to USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse of her and hundreds of other women.

    Biles told the Senate Judiciary Committee that “enough is enough” as she and three other U.S. gymnasts spoke in stark emotional terms about the lasting toll Nassar’s crimes have taken on their lives. In response, FBI Director Christopher Wray said he was “deeply and profoundly sorry” for delays in Nassar’s prosecution and the pain it caused.

    The four-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion — widely considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time — said that she “can imagine no place that I would be less comfortable right now than sitting here in front of you." She declared herself a survivor of sexual abuse...

    Such a travesty of Justice! These poor women had trust in our FBI. And the head of the FBI, C Wray sits on his chair in front of the world and says....'I'm sorry'

    Kinda like..'My bad'

    smh

    My personal faith in the FBI is zippo.
    IMO, they protect who they are told to protect.
    See Jeffrey Epstein See Ghislaine Maxwell..
