The Department of Justice (DOJ) said Thursday that two former FBI agents accused of botching the sex-abuse case against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who raped kids on the team, will not be prosecuted. After a ” careful re-review of material, the government declined to prosecute the former agents, who are suspected of lying about their work on the case, after a “careful re-review of material.” The former agents were being investigated after dramatic testimony from gymnastics sensation Simone Biles and several of her colleagues who Nassar harmed even though he had been reported to the FBI last year. The DOJ stated that this does not indicate a view that the investigation of Nassar was conducted as it should have been, nor does it imply approval or disdain of the former agents’ behavior. After numerous gymnasts delivered sad testimony to the House Judiciary Committee last September, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco initiated a probe. They detailed the abuse they endured at the hands of Nassar, a 58-year-old Michigan State University doctor who is serving a life sentence for possessing child pornography and abusing at least ten minor girls. Prosecutors believe he sexually molested hundreds of girls while pretending to be a doctor. Former FBI agents, including a supervisor and his subordinate, lied to internal investigators to cover up their failure to investigate credible claims made against Nassar in 2015. According to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the former FBI agents, including a supervisor and his subordinate, lied to internal investigators to cover up their failure to investigate credible claims made against Nassar in 2015. Nassar was able to continue to victimize young girls due to his failure. W. Jay Abbott, one of the agents, retired, and Michael Langeman, the other, was dismissed last year. The Justice Department stated that it would continue to learn from what occurred in this matter, and undertake efforts to keep victims at the center of our work and to ensure that they are heard, respected, and treated fairly throughout the process, as they deserve,” and that it wants to work with Congress to address unspecified gaps in the law to help prevent events like this from occurring in the future and hold perpetrators accountable. Last year, Simone Biles and three other high-profile gymnasts testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Nassar’s abuse and the FBI’s reluctance to intervene. Biles told legislators, “I blame Larry Nassar, and I blame a whole system that tolerated and perpetrated his assault.” At least 330 girls and women have come forward to say Nassar sexually abused them. According to Director Christopher Wray, the shortcomings of the FBI are “inexcusable.”

( According to an FBI search warrant application, an Iraqi man and suspected ISIS operator planned to kill former President George W. Bush. He purportedly smuggled a team of assassins across the easily penetrated southern border.

The March 23 application released this week accuses ISIS operative Shihab Ahmed Shihab of traveling from Columbus, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas, to stake out Bush’s residence and the George W. Bush Institute. He recorded and photographed the surrounding areas in preparation for the killing.

According to the warrant, Shihab, 52, traveled to the U.S. from Iraq in 2020, seeking asylum. The claimed ISIS operator wants retribution for murdering Iraqis and fracturing the country after the 2003 invasion.

Shihab allegedly boasted about transporting Hezbollah militants for $100,000.

The suspect’s assassination plot against Bush depended on his ability to ferry terrorists through the porous southern border, the Justice Department said. Shihab allegedly exchanged money to import foreign people to the U.S. After the assassination unlawfully, Shihab allegedly intended to sneak the four out of the U.S. through Mexico.

In August 202, Shihab planned to help a fellow Iraqi enter the US for $40,000. But the person seeking his services was an undercover agent and the FBI had arranged the conversation.

The court document also claimed Shihab planned to transport four more Iraqis into the U.S. to assassinate former President George W. Bush in retaliation for Iraqi casualties during ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom.’

Federal officials detected Shihab’s assassination plot by monitoring his Facebook Meta and WhatsApp messages.

This case highlights how federal investigators continue to watch ISIS threats despite American intelligence and military actions in recent years. It also reveals how the FBI, despite its claims of being prohibited from investigating significant crimes due to Meta and other tech companies’ encryption, has been able to get past WhatsApp security by deploying informants and tracking WhatsApp information.

Shihab was arrested Tuesday morning and appeared in federal court at 2:30.

After Shihab’s arrest, the White House chief of staff said, “President Bush has full trust in the Secret Service, law enforcement, and intelligence.”

The former Republican president has spent the past year persuading Republicans to support Joe Biden’s amnesty for illegal immigrants.
