The Elite USA gymnastics athlete will testify this morning before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the FBI’s handling of sexual abuse complaints against former team doctor Larry Nassar.
Simone Biles, MacKayla Maroney, Maggie Nichols and Aly Raisman will speak after releasing a scathing report into the agency’s failures to investigate complaints against Nassar, who was convicted of abusing 10 minors in January 2018 and up to 175 serving. years in prison.
FBI Director Christopher A. Vary and Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who led the report, detailed how the FBI’s Indianapolis office did not respond “with the urgency necessary to the allegations” and to have made “fundamental errors” after launching the investigation. The agents were criticized for allowing Nassar to continue abusing young athletes for months.
