These #gymnastics hearings are exposing the depth of corruption in the @FBI
and the Department of Justice in what seems to be criminal coverup of #nassar abuse. The witnesses are stunning, composed but full of 🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/3xb7mzADg4
Heartbreaking testimony from Simone Biles and Aly Raisman to the senate committee looking into FBI failures in the Larry Nassar case. Raisman said letting him leave USAG of his own accord was like “serving more innocent children to a paedophile on a silver platter.” #gymnastics
Today McKayla Mulroney, Simone Biles and other members of U.S. Olympic women #gymnastics team are on Capitol Hill raining hellfire down on the failures of the FBI and team officials to protect a generation of American gymnasts from a serial child molester. https://t.co/lBHzDqj388
Little Girls In Pretty Boxes detailed a lot of this in 1995. I reported what I knew to the FBI in 1996-97 they didn't do anything. LOTS of people have been screaming about #childabuse in #gymnastics since the 1980s it's only after #nassar anyone finally cared. This isn't new.
So does the investigation into Brett Kavanaugh get a review now and a new investigation
FBI did an awful job there also - not even interviewing the victim or the accused...
#BelieveVictims #EnoughIsEnough #gymnastics #CSPAN
So where’s the FBIs’s accountability here? Why did they put blinders on for Dr Blasley Ford? Why does the justice system consistently ignore women in favor of powerful white men? #SimoneBiles #gymnastics #FBI #senatehearing
These brave gymnasts just gave gut wrenching testimonies that moved the heartstrings of every woman and victim of abuse. The hypocrisy of Ted Cruz (TEXAS) is just too much for me. What would have happened if Larry Nassar had impregnated these women? #senatehearing #gymnastics
The sheer gall of these men praising these young women, yet who support Trump & denounced his accusers.

Sen. #Booker is a beautiful soul and true public servant. “It shouldn’t take something directly happening to us before to trigger our empathy and action” - #Judiciary hearing on US #Gymnastics on the sexual abuse/assault.
Activity In Focus: Gymnastics - Premier Education Gymnastics
We wanted to give a sharper focus to one of our most popular and most successful activities: gymnastics. https://t.co/yhCJRbKSsw

I reported the #childabuse in #gymnastics to the FBI in 1996 and they didn't do anything other than ask why I cared. Um because children were being abused that's why. #usag
McKayla Maroney...I can never watch her commercial the same way again. Sad.
"After telling that story - my story - I'm just exhausted" says @McKaylaMaroney
about her searing experiences and answering Senate questions. #gymnastics including whether female @FBI
agents helped investigate.
Reps in Texas @JohnCornyn
thanking the survivors of #larrynassar for coming forward however if these girls had gotten pregnant by that scumbag those same reps would force these girls to carry his child #TexasWarOnWomen #AbortionBan #gymnastics
“Processing my abuse is exhausting. I’ve competed in two Olympic Games and I can’t even stand in the shower, I can’t go for a 10 minute walk... this testimony might take me months to recover.” #gymnastics 😡😭
I can't imagine being one of these young ladies having to talk about sexual abuse in front of "men" like @tedcruz
& all #GOPSeditiousTraitors
who hate women, don't believe in #WomensRights 🤦♀️😪
*So proud of these women💙
How the testimonies of these brave gymnasts are handled, determines if other young women and men will come forth in the future reporting abuse. We must get this right! #gymnastics #justice https://t.co/6370gNW8LM
As the gymnast testified about the horrible things that have happened to them at the hands of men, it’s noticeable the amount of white men on this committee. #StrongFemaleLead #gymnastics
I am 42 yrs past abuse (my mom's BF), am a lawyer, and in a happy, long-lasting marriage.
To this day, the effects of my abuse pop up randomly. Can't help but flinch sometimes when touched.
I will myself to feel safe, but it never ends.
With you, girls #gymnastics
Today's testimony explains how people like Jeffrey Epstein avoided prosecution for decades. @FBI
#Olympics #larrynassar #gymnastics
Ted Cruz pontificating about the “unspeakable things” the #usgymnasts endured at the hands of #Nassar when these brave young women clearly and articulately SPOKE OUT in no uncertain terms is typically tone-deaf and useless. #gymnastics #senatehearing
I warned about #childabuse in #gymnastics in 1996, had my life threatened, my late mother harassed, was lied about, and many who decry what is happening now even believe the lies about those who spoke up. Little Girls in Pretty Boxes came out in 1995 btw none of this was secret.
just talk out of both sides of her mouth telling #McKaylaMaroney #AlyRaisman #SimoneBiles #MaggieNichols she was confident the #senatehearing committee would ''act'' but then follow up with ''if'' & ''when'' it happens someday? Thats a problem! #gymnastics
