  • Gymnasts Testify - FBI under fire

    The FBI is really taking heat for covering up, or completely botching, sexual abuse of (then) underage gymnasts.

    Watch Live: Gymnasts Testify At Hearing On FBI's Handling Of Larry Nassar's Case

    Pretty damning testimony.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      But do they ever suffer consequences? Even with this clearly damning testimony.

        If I were one of those young women, I'd ask "so what do you plan on doing?"

        They have said they always get treated like a 'hot potato', and things get passed back and forth...

        All these politicians are sucking up to them telling them what heroes they are, telling them "I feel your pain"....

        But what will happen? What consequences?

          Probably not. All we will see is congress being sympathetic and then nothing will happen.

            The results of having been weaponized as a political tool.

              In the good ol' days, you couldn't even get an FBI agent to tell you what political party he claimed, or comment on anything political.

                I was on the phone, but it sounded like somebody on TV just said the FBI agent in charge of this was fired today.

                  I think we're just now finding out how incompetent and corrupt they have always been.

                    It's OK, though... Wray is gonna straighten it all out. He promises!

                    Again.

                      Thanks to the internet (there are some good things about it) and independent journalists, they can't hide behind the facade of law and order and cover this stuff up anymore.

                              Operation mockingbird allowed them to keep this stuff under warps and mislead the public into thinking they were good guys, until the internet was born.
