Congressional committee to investigate MSU, USOC and more regarding Nassar case

Congressional committee to investigate MSU, USOC and more regarding Nassar case

Former U.S. Olympic gymnastics coach John Geddert knew about sexual abuse by team doctor Larry Nassar as far back as 2011 but did nothing about it, gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman has claimed. 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".

"This reprehensible conduct went undetected or ignored for years", the committee, led by Reps.

Strampel, however, did not set up any system to make sure Nassar was following those new guidelines, and others at the sports clinic where Nassar work say they were never made aware of those specific requirements.

"We would talk about it amongst ourselves", she told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Thursday. "And John Geddert was in the auto with us and he just didn't say anything", Ms Raisman told CNN.

Mr Geddert has retired since his time coaching the 2012 gymnastics team which included Ms Raisman, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Jordyn Wieber - all of whom accused Nassar and/or gave victim impact statements at Nasser's sentencing trials.

In a new interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, the 23-year-old Olympian says team coach John Geddert was in the auto back in 2011 when one teammate was detailing being molested by the disgraced doctor.

The release date for Nassar, who is 54 years old, is listed as 2069.

Interim president John Engler requested that Michigan State's provost revoke the tenure of former medical school dean William Strampel, which is the first step to firing him.

He's serving a 60-year federal prison sentence for child pornography.

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

The senators' announcement comes two days before the House Energy and Commerce Committee is expected to receive written explanations of the handling of sexual misconduct cases by USA Gymnastics (USAG) and other governing bodies of organized sports. The federation will draw from techniques available in the International Olympic Committee's toolkit on protecting athletes from harassment and abuse in sport. "Yet, Twistars' team doctor sexually abused young gymnasts unfettered for years".
