McKayla Maroney’s Powerful Testimony to Congress Shows the Uphill Battle Survivors Face – Mother Jones

In an exclusive interview, @biannagolodryga  spoke with @AngiePovilaitis , the former lead prosecutor against Larry Nassar, about yesterday’s heartbreaking, shocking testimony from Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, McKayla Maroney & Maggie Nichols. It's a must-watch:

The FBI fired an agent who interviewed McKayla Maroney about sexual abuse allegations against Larry Nassar — after he failed to open an investigation and lied to investigators. The FBI delayed investigating for 15 months, during which Nassar abused at least 70 women and girls.

To Simone, McKayla, Maggie, and Aly: we stand in solidarity with you & every survivor who has spoken out against their abuser & the systems that perpetuate violence. Your courage and strength are a beacon of hope, light, and inspiration. 💚💙
