Former USA Gymnastics president had ‘troubling’ contact with FBI during Larry Nassar investigation

Saturday 15:25 GMT

Steve Penny, the former president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, discussed a U.S. Olympic Committee job opening with the head of the FBI’s Indianapolis field office while that office was investigating Larry Nassar in 2015, contact that has been dubbed “troubling” by a prosecutor in Texas who has charged Penny with felony evidence tampering in a separate investigation related to Nassar. As reported Thursday by the Indianapolis Star and New York Times, Penny told Special Agent in Charge W. “Jay” Abbott in 2015 that the head of security for the U.S. Olympic Committee would be retiring and suggested Abbott might be interested in the position.
