And in fact, he turned out to be a pedophile rather than a doctor. Maloney told the FBI about the 2015 summer abuse and said it hadn’t been reported for more than a year before it was misrepresented. “After telling the FBI the full story of the abuse in the summer of 2015, not only did the FBI not report my abuse, but when they finally documented my report 17 months later, they said I I made a completely false claim about what I said, “Maloney said. “This was very obvious and was the pedophilia and abuse of the cookie cutter. I told the FBI all this and they tampered with my report and not only minimized the abuse, but also silenced me again. This is important because I chose to let it, “Maloney said. “They wanted to hide it. In collaboration with the FBI and the Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics was working to hide Larry Nassar as a predator,” Maloney said. Nasar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison and charged with sexual abuse by more than 150 women and girls. Credit: CSPAN via Storyful
