Aly Raisman Team USA Doctor Abused Me Too

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman looks on before throwing out a ceremonial first pitch before a game against the Kansas City Royals

The Olympic gymnast joins her "Fierce Five" member McKayla Maroney, who opened up about her own experiences last month. I can't ... every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think ...

Raisman was a key member of both the 2012 and 2016 United States Olympic gymnastics teams that won gold. Per the Lansing State Journal, more than 140 women and girls have filed suits related to his alleged sexual misconduct, with almost as many reporting him to the cops.

Dr. Nassar is now in jail after pleading guilty to child pornography charges - but not guilty to sexual assault. He was in a position of power, actually named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics up until the summer of 2015.

The 23-year-old describes the abuse during an interview on 60 Minutes that will air tomorrow and also talks about it in her new book, Fierce, which comes out next week, reported USA Today.

In the Sunday show 60 Minutes, which was broadcast on Friday, Aly Raisman said that he had undergone the first "treatment" of Dr. Nassar at the age of 15 years.

The former athlete, who claims to be "angry", wants to "just bring change" so that young gymnasts "never have to live this again". She claimed the abuse began when she was just 13, and she had been reluctant to speak out because she knew he was a renowned physician.

House Intel Releases Carter Page's Testimony
Another Daily Beast reporter, Harry Siegel, noticed that Page both pleaded the Fifth and also insisted he'd done nothing wrong. Lewandowski, Page said, approved of the trip, as long as he was going by himself and not affiliated with the campaign.

More than 130 women have filed lawsuits against Nassar, saying he sexually abused them as he worked with the US gymnastics team for more than two decades. According to them, the osteopathic doctor was comforted by the particular environment of high-level gymnastics, where complaints and signs of injury could endanger Olympic dreams.

Raisman says a lot of people have asked her why Nassar's accusers didn't speak up sooner.

Raisman continued after Jon Lapook of "60 Minutes" noted her anger.

Last month, McKayla Maroney, 21, detailed how Nassar began molesting her at the age of 13 at a USA national team training camp. USA Gymnastics hired Kerry Perry as its new president and CEO on Tuesday after president Steve Penny resigned in March after 12 years on the job. "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed..." the statement said.

However, Nassar also faces a handful of other criminal charges stemming from the accusations.

It was commissioned by USA Gymnastics and conducted by Deborah Daniels, a former Federal prosecutor, who spent a significant portion of her career prosecuting child sexual offenders, and scrutinised the organisation's methods.
