Congress opens second investigation into USA Gymnastics sex abuse scandal

Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan answers questions from members of the media after speaking at a press conference about her American Jobs Agenda at Rogers Foam Automotive Corporation on Tuesday

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Aly Raisman told CNN that her former coach, John Geddert, might have known about sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar as early as 2011. She said, "A 2016 IndyStar investigation revealed that over 20 years, at least 368 gymnasts had claimed some form of sexual abuse by their coaches, gym owners, or other adults - nearly certainly a vast undercount of victims".

"One of the most disturbing aspects of the survivors' accounts is how this reprehensible conduct went undetected or ignored for years".

Raisman said she was not sure if Geddert attempted to stop Nassar from the abuse after the vehicle conversation but she was certain he never asked the athletes any questions.

The "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" atmosphere around Nassar was also on display at his third trial in MI, where he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 125 years for sexual abuse at the Twistars Gymnastics Club.

"For this reason, I will remain available to listen to the United States gymnasts who have asked for change", Watanabe said. "And John Geddert was in the auto with us and he just didn't say anything". "Coaches, instructors, law enforcement, and other trusted adults all failed these young athletes".

In one of the victim impact statements, Amanda Thomashow expressed how Michigan State University turned a blind eye to her complaints.

Cost of Trump's military parade could run into millions
The parade also commemorated the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I in 1917. It included tanks, armored vehicles and a flyover of USA and French military jets.

As for the rest of the world, what we know is there have been 70 statements made to Nassar about his actions, with at least 50 more waiting on their time to show their demon how strong they are.

Her response when the news of Nassar's abuse first broke?

Raisman, who is Jewish and the victor of numerous Olympic medals, including several golds, spoke Thursday in an interview with CNN.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges in December before receiving additional sentences for sexual abuse in recent weeks.

Letters were sent to leaders of all of the institutions named in the investigation, including MSU Interim President John Engler. That plan is through, as the fallout continues following sentencing of Nassar, which resulted in what amounts to several life sentences for molesting more than 100 female athletes. "It means telling coaches that physical and emotional abuse of any gymnast is not O.K".
