The victims of Larry Nassar and FBI Director Wray testify on Capitol Hill

1 00:00:00,810 –> 00:00:03,750 >> There’s no question Larry Nassar was a monster. 2 00:00:05,520 –> 00:00:11,010 >> A horrific predator. He was not the only monster. In gymnastics. 3 00:00:11,010 –> 00:00:17,100 And gymnastics was not the only sport that had monster. The 4 00:00:17,100 –> 00:00:24,260 institutions that failed you. The schools like Michigan State University USA 5 00:00:24,260 –> 00:00:30,270 Gymnastics the coaches and trainers they 6 00:00:30,270 –> 00:00:36,000 all looked the other way when you came to them and then the FBI looked 7 00:00:36,000 –> 00:00:39,230 the other way. To be clear. 8 00:00:43,550 –> 00:00:48,740 >> Take your time to be clear. 9 00:00:48,810 –> 00:00:54,370 >> I blame Larry Nelson and I also blame an 10 00:00:54,370 –> 00:00:59,980 entire system that enabled and perpetrated his abuse. 11 00:00:59,980 –> 00:01:05,560 >> What is the point of reporting abuse if our own FBI agents 12 00:01:05,560 –> 00:01:11,020 are going to take it upon themselves to bury that report in a drawer. They 13 00:01:11,020 –> 00:01:16,210 had legal legitimate evidence of child abuse and did nothing. 14 00:01:16,210 –> 00:01:21,700 >> Why. Why would the FBI agents lied OIG investigators. Why would the FBI not 15 00:01:21,700 –> 00:01:27,520 properly document an evidence that was received. Why would the FBI agent be interested in 16 00:01:27,520 –> 00:01:31,300 the USA presidency. These questions remain unanswered. 17 00:01:31,360 –> 00:01:38,780 >> Over the past few years it has become painfully clear how 18 00:01:38,780 –> 00:01:44,000 a survivors healing is affected by the handling of their abuse and it 19 00:01:44,000 –> 00:01:49,700 disgusts me that we are still fighting for the most basic answers and 20 00:01:49,700 –> 00:01:54,980 accountability over six years later. I 21 00:01:54,980 –> 00:02:00,500 want to be crystal clear the actions and inaction of the FBI 22 00:02:00,500 –> 00:02:02,690 employees detailed in this report. 23 00:02:03,380 –> 00:02:08,570 >> Are totally unacceptable. The kinds of fundamental errors that 24 00:02:08,570 –> 00:02:13,990 were made in this case in 2015 and 16 should never have happened. 25 00:02:13,990 –> 00:02:20,420 Period. Where is the accountability where’s 26 00:02:20,420 –> 00:02:26,000 the accountability for letting Larry continue to sexually assault little girls on your watch 27 00:02:26,000 –> 00:02:31,860 whereas the accountability for those at the FBI who chose to place personal gain 28 00:02:31,860 –> 00:02:37,380 ahead of their duties to protect and serve had anyone at the FBI 29 00:02:37,380 –> 00:02:38,220 done their job. 30 00:02:38,490 –> 00:02:44,550 >> Then I would not be here speaking to you today. The people that actually can take 31 00:02:44,550 –> 00:02:50,100 and enforce the laws onto the people who are accountable. This will get 32 00:02:50,100 –> 00:02:55,470 fixed. It will go away and future generations will not face the abuse 33 00:02:55,470 –> 00:03:00,720 that we have faced and they will not face a lifetime of side effects that may or may not be the end 34 00:03:00,720 –> 00:03:01,040 of them.
