State House Speaker Tom Leonard says MSU hasn't been forthcoming about who knew what and when about the crimes of former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

As the cases against former Michigan State University sports doctor Larry Nassar continue to unfold, there have been calls for MSU President Lou Anna Simon to resign. The latest came from State House Speaker Tom Leonard who says MSU hasn't been forthcoming about who knew what, and when, about Nassar's crimes.

Michigan Radio's Morning Edition host Doug Tribou and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss whether removing President Simon is the right response. 

They also talk about the response to a shooting at Detroit's Noel Night celebration earlier this month, calls to shut down temporarily Enbridge Energy's Line 5, and a petition to for a part-time legislature

Doug Tribou joined the Michigan Radio staff as the host of Morning Edition in 2016. Doug first moved to Michigan in 2015 when he was awarded a Knight-Wallace journalism fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
