The organizations that should have protected young female gymnasts from sexual abuse by Larry Nassar, including the US Olympic Committee and the FBI, "fundamentally failed" to do so for years, according to a new congressional report.  https://nbcnews.to/2STkR9l 

"Terrible things happened," Sen. Moran tells @NBCNews. "In many instances they were reported and, almost without exception, the people that they were reported to didn't respond."

Between summer 2015 and Sept. 2016, the Olympic organizations "knowingly concealed abuse by Nassar, leading to the abuse of dozens of additional amateur athletes," according to the report.

The report concluded that Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked, USA Gymnastics, and the U.S. Olympic Committee, as well as the FBI, "had opportunities to stop Nassar but failed to do so."  https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/congress-u-s-olympic-committee-fbi-failed-protect-athletes-larry-n1035751
