Last week, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a scathing report on the FBI’s failure to properly investigate extensive sexual abuse allegations against former US Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. During the three-year internal review, FBI officials gave false or misleading answers in the face of those setbacks.

Horowitz noted that, according to civil court records, about 70 women and girls were abused by Nassar around the time the FBI was first notified of the charges in July 2015 and when the Michigan officials arrested him on a separate basis in November 2016 Nassar was accused of sexually abusing more than 330 girls and women – including Olympic athletes Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Simone Biles.

Rachael Denhollander was the first woman to publicly accuse Nassar of sexual abuse. The 36-year-old, who was abused by Nassar as a teen gymnast, wrote in an article for The Washington Post that the inspector general’s report showed how tough the road could be. for survivors. She discusses steps the FBI, USA Gymnastics, Congress and others should take to correct past wrongs and prevent anything like it from happening in the future. .
