(Sept. 15) 6689957db23d4951909c3703f932e4d7 Wed, 15 Sep 2021 19:18:38 +0000 SHOTLIST:RESTRICTION SUMMARY:US NETWORK POOLWashington DC - 15 September 20211. SOUNDBITE (English) Christopher Wray, FBI Director:"On behalf of the entire FBI. I want to begin by saying to the brave women who testified here this morning, Miss Biles, Miss Maroney, Miss Nichols and Miss Raisman. And I gather there were some others here today who were among the many who Nassar hurt. I'm deeply and profoundly sorry to each and every one of you. I'm sorry for what you and your families have been through. I'm sorry that so many different people let you down, over and over again. And I'm especially sorry that there were people at the FBI who had their own chance to stop this monster back in 2015 and failed. And that is inexcusable. It never should have happened. And we're doing everything in our power to make sure it never happens again."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++2. SOUNDBITE (English) Christopher Wray, FBI Director:"I'd like to make a promise to the women who appeared here today and to all survivors of abuse, I am not interested in simply addressing this wrong and moving on. It's my commitment to you that I and my entire senior leadership team are going to make damn sure everybody at the FBI remembers what happened here in heartbreaking detail."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++3. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Horowitz, Department of Justice Inspector:"These gymnasts have showed remarkable bravery in detailing the sexual assaults they endured at  the very same time they were competing at the highest levels for our country. They did so with the belief that their actions would save other young women and girls from the serial abuse they endured. Sadly, as detailed in our report, the response of the FBI agents who received that information betrayed their law enforcement responsibilities and their duties to these victims."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++4. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Horowitz, Department of Justice Inspector:"Their persistence and strength are an example to all of us who work in the area of accountability and who want to promote accountability. Although the sexual abuses by Nassar and the appallingly inadequate response by the FBI agents cannot be undone, these athletes commitment to justice and their pursuit of accountability for all involved in this deeply tragic series of events will improve our institutions ultimately and will help ensure federal law enforcement responds in an appropriate and a timely way to reports of sexual abuse in the future."STORYLINE:FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz appear before Senate committee to answer questions about USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar's sexual abuse of her and hundreds of other women.The hearing is part of a congressional effort to hold the FBI accountable after multiple missteps in investigating the case, including the delays that allowed the now-imprisoned Nassar to abuse other young gymnasts. An internal investigation by the Justice Department released in July said that the FBI made fundamental errors in the probe and did not treat the case with the “utmost seriousness” after USA Gymnastics first reported the allegations to the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis in 2015. The FBI has acknowledged its own conduct was inexcusable. At least 40 girls and women said they were molested after the FBI had been made aware of the problem. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
