A distraught Simone Biles has accused the FBI of turning a blind eye to the sexual abuse perpetrated by sicko sports doctor Larry Nassar.

The seven-time Olympian broke down and had to pause to regain her composure as she testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“It feels like the FBI turned a blind eye to us,” Biles said.

“I don’t want another young gymnast or Olympic athlete to experience the horror I and hundreds of others have endured.

“How much is a little girl worth?”

Biles’ former Olympic teammate McKayla Maroney also accused the FBI of ignoring her pleas for help.

“I was molested by the US gymnastics national team and Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar,” the gymnast said.

“In actuality, he turned out to be more of a pedophile than he was a doctor.”

Maroney said the FBI deliberately ignored accusations leveled at the disgraced doctor.

“After telling my entire story of abuse to the FBI in the summer of 2015, not only did the FBI not report my abuse but when they eventually documented my report 17 months later they made entirely false claims about what I said,” she said.

“They chose to lie about what I said and protect a serial child molester rather than protect not only me but countless others.”
