The maid’s lawyer just got up in front of the courthouse and announced that he thinks Cyrus Vance is scared to fight this case because he already lost 2 big ones recently (Deutsche Bank firefighters and the rape case against the 2 policemen).He says someone leaked the details to the New York Times, some of them false, to discredit her.
Bottom line: DSK’s defence team seriously undermined the maid’s credibility by saying that she consorted with a drug dealer, owns 5 cell phones (she denies this), has had hundreds of thousands of dollars into her bank account, and lied to get asylum. But the maid is sticking to her side of the story, which her lawyer described in graphic detail for the first time.
He repeated the worst evidence against DSK at least 4 times each:
- he bruised her vagina
- he ripped her stockings
- she spit out his semen on the carpet and on the wall, and her supervisor saw it
- she has a torn ligament in her shoulder
- DSK had toothpaste smeared all around his mouth when he checked out
We’re all wondering when the maid is going to stand up and tell the story herself. He said she would tell the press what happened “as soon as possible.”
