Blackburn Delivers Opening Statement Condemning The FBI's Handling Of The Nassar Investigation

September 15, 2021

Today, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn delivered opening remarks at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Examining the Inspector General’s Report on the FBI’s Handling of the Larry Nassar Investigation.


“Every single person in authority who turned a blind eye to these young athletes’ allegations is complicit in Nassar’s crime, and each one of them should be considered a predator. We cannot save future generations of women and girls from this kind of horrific abuse if we continue to settle for diplomatic resolutions. We owe it to these young women — and to girls and women everywhere — to figure out why their government failed them, why these institutions did not listen to them, and that process begins today,” said Senator Blackburn.
