EAST LANSING, mich. — Michigan State University's Board of Trustees announced Friday morning that a new investigation will be conducted into Larry Nassar's crimes and this report will be shared with the public.

Trustees voted to hire the law firm of McDermott Will & Emery to conduct this investigation.

This is not the first such review conducted by Michigan State University.

The board previously hired law firms to conduct an internal investigation in both 2016 and 2017.

However, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued a statement on Friday saying MSU “lacks the credibility necessary to conduct a legitimate investigation."

"Over the past few years, it has launched several investigations including an ‘independent investigation’ conducted by Patrick Fitzgerald in 2016. Unsurprisingly, it has cleared its employees of culpability each time," Nessel said. "There is only one way for MSU to regain the public’s trust and that is to waive its privilege and disclose all information in its possession about Larry Nassar to the Department of Attorney General. In other words, the University should leave the job of investigating to the professionals.”
