7:09 am
we'll start with nbc's morgan radford who has been talking to those critical state voters. >> reporter: that new national poll shows front runner joe biden expanding his lead. we can expect to see more fireworks tonight as the other candidates really sharpen their attacks against him and look for breakout moments to stand out from each other, but in this case, where they are speaking could be as critical as the policies themselves. detroit is still a solidly blue city in a state that flipped red for trump in 2016. i spoke with voters who say they'll be tuned in and warn that none of the candidates should take their votes for granted. >> reporter: ahead of tonight's make or break debate in the motor city, joe biden is still dominating the democratic race. a neuqupoll shows the former vi president with a double-digit lead over his rivals surging 12 points in the past month. biden's closest competitor senator elizabeth warren with
7:10 am

7:11 am
needs to hear from these democratic candidates? >> i think we are more concerned about hearing not just the middle class, but the black middle class. >> we are the motor -- the motor city, but even those jobs are decreasing, so it's like what's next? >> we've been talking to folks. are they enthusiastic about any particular candidate or still doing the wait and see? >> kind of the wait and see. what we saw on the ground did largely confirm what we saw in that poll. it's interesting to see how much these debates matter to voters. one person said he liked buttigieg because he felt like he answered honestly. others felt like biden is the only one who can really take on president trump. others felt like sanders when it came to education and mass incarceration was something that is important to them. it's still early. >> still a lot of candidates. thank you, morgan. one topic you can bet will come up during the debate
7:12 am

we're back at 7:41 with an nbc news exclusive tie we're back now at 7:41 with an nbc news exclusive tied to the sexual abuse scandal that has rocked usa gymnastics. >> congress has now completed its 18-month investigation investigators finding multiple organizations failed to protect hundreds of athletes, mostly young girls, and some even worked to conceal the truth about the long-time team doctor who abused the girls nbc's tom costello has the exclusive details for us this morning. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this investigation on the part of congress found that these organizations failed to act for
7:42 am
more than a year, even after having credible information that team dr. larry nassar was, in fact, abusing the athletes, the young kids and now high powered senators on capitol hill are saying that top people at the u.s. olympic committee and even usa gymnastics need to be held accountable. this morning 12 months before the tokyo 2020 opening ceremony, the scathing results of a congressional investigation into the u.s. olympic committee and usa gymnastics team doctor larry nassar now serving up to a 175-year sentence for sexually abusing minors in his care the number of victims believed to be in the hundreds. olympic gold medalist makayla maroney first spoke to the fbi about the abuse back in 2015, but she told savannah nothing happened >> were you wondering, hey, how come the fbi hasn't contacted us >> yeah, i think me and my mom, we both kept calling trying to get information and be like what's going on here
7:43 am
like why are things stalling >> reporter: now the investigation has found that for 421 days, a year and two months, the fbi, the u.s. olympic committee, and usa gymnastics all failed to act, or even warn michigan state university where dr. nassar worked that he was sexually abusing athletes. >> and they're also profiles in cowardice and concealment because people looked the other way, and they put medals and money above morals >> reporter: connecticut democrat richard blumenthal and kansas republican senator jerry moran say the organizations knowingly concealed reports of the abuse. >> was this a massive cover-up at all levels of usag, usoc and for that matter, even the fbi? >> whether it was a criminal cover-up remains to be proven, but it was a cover-up in spirit. >> reporter: in april of 2018, some of nassar's accusers appeared on capitol hill,
7:44 am
accusing usa gymnastics and the u.s. olympic committee of failing to protect them. >> they failed to speak up, and they let nassar assault children >> reporter: the ceo u.s. olympic committee scott blackmun resigned, athletes accused him of failing to act. the congressional allegation he misrepresented the truth under oath alan ashley was fired, former usa jam nistics steve penny refused to answer congress's questions. he's pleaded not guilty to evidence tampering, ordering the removal of internal documents from the team's training center. when informed about the report's findings, penny's attorney who has not read the report told nbc news much of it was not true. >> it is hard to find instances where what should have happened happened. >> should people go to prison in this case? >> if these allegations are substantiated by evidence and by conviction, people should serve time in prison
7:45 am
>> reporter: this morning former national team gymnast jessica howard who says she too was abused by nassar says the senators' work gives her hope. >> to actually see it get to this point already feels like a huge, to me feels like a huge victory. >> reporter: we reached out to usa gymnastics and the usoc for comment. usa gymnastics tells nbc news it looks forward to working with congress and has already made changes to quote, designed to prevent the opportunity for abuse. in an open letter to athletes back in december following its own investigation, the usoc did acknowledge institutional failures and said it was implementing reforms the fbi referred us to the justice department's office of the inspector general and it said it will not comment on ongoing investigation. guys, back to you. >> tom, what's so infuriating about all of this is how many different institutions appear to have just totally failed and dropped the ball for these athletes so the investigation is one thing. is there any kind of legislation
7:46 am
that these senators are proposing to fix this? >> this is a bipartisan effort with moran and blumenthal. they're proposing a bill that would essentially give a lot more oversight to congress, and it would allow essentially them to dissolve the boards of both the usoc and also usa gymnastics if necessary also imposing a lot more liability on the potential for -- so if one of these organizations has abuse going on, they would be exposed to even greater liability and also giving the young athletes more representation on the usoc board as well. so the bottom line is this law, if it's passed, would provide a lot more congressional oversight over america's olympic teams >> all right, tom, thank you very much. just ahead this morning, another bison attack at a national park, the young victim still recovering in the hospital shares details behind his terrifying encounter, but first these messages
