Lessenberry on Larry Nassar, 'Trumpchi,' and state infrastructure

Jan 17, 2018

About 140 women and girls have accused former sports doctor Larry Nassar of sexually assaulting them while he worked for Michigan State University and the U.S. women's Olympic gymnastics team. More than 80 women and girls are scheduled to speak this week at his sentencing hearing. 

Senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry tells Morning Edition host Doug Tribou about what has stood out to him so far about the victims' statements. 

They also discuss MSU's role in the case, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich's plan to reevaluate the state’s infrastructure, and Chinese automaker GAC's decision to start selling cars in the U.S. in 2019.
