District Attorney Says DSK Accuser Admitted She Lied To Grand Jury About What Happened Following Purported Attack

Tyler Durden's picture


Just out from Reuters:


More as we get the full letter sent out by D.A. Cyrus Vance.

In the meantime, this from Reuters:

New York prosecutors will continue their investigation and re-examine evidence in the case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, charged with attempting to rape a hotel maid, the judge in the case said on Friday.

"There will be no rush to judgment," New York Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said at a hearing where the former IMF chief was released from house arrest and his bail revoked.

"The people will continue to investigate and re-examine the matter as appropriate."

Sources close to the case say questions about the credibility of Strauss-Kahn's accuser have been raised.

Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexual assault at the Sofitel Hotel in New York on May 14 and has been held under house arrest. His next court appearance is set for July 18.

Well the victim's attorney, a former prosecutor, said the Manhattan DA is a liar. He held a press conference that wasn't widely publicised and he said she stands by her story and the physical evidence supports her claim.

That is justice in this US driven world.


That DSK story was seminal in some sort, exposing the freedom of speek US kind.


That man comes from a world where women are free to talk against their rapists.

The negro woman comes from a world where women are prevented from talking about their rape.

And it is very interesting. Because as it was postulated by this site, this DSK man had other events before being compromized by that negro woman. Events performed on women who are free to talk against their rapists.


At this point, the nature of freedom brought by the US appears, and freedom for whom.


In both worlds, rape happen. But in that negro woman world, the rapists have to coerce the victims into silence, they have to pressure women. And a victim crossing the line of the prohibition can receive support from her communauty as it is happening right now.

In the US free world, wom en censor themselves. They chose not to talk while they could. Because they felt lonely, because they knew they would go through character assassination, because they knew it would be useless.


Wonderful world for a rapist. Because it brings peace of mind. In that negro world, a rapist is prevented from denying his rape. If he does, he will forget about pressuring a woman into silence.

In the US world order, the rapist is reinforced in his way by the acts of the women. A rapist rapes a woman. The woman is free to talk. As she does not talk, then it is an evidence he did not rape that women. Else she would have talked.

This is the kind of freedom the US has brought to the world: freedom from the criminals. Criminal minds in the US world order have managed to render their victims so helpless that criminals no longer face the burden of trying to avoid social condemnation.

Until they cross path with a backward society member, where freedom of speech has still some power.

But to answer your question - anybody raped by somebody with that much international pull would be stupid not to get an attorney by any means possible.  This is the big league where the dirty tricks and backroom deals are performed by pros.

The DA and the alleged victim's attorney have two different agendas. This is now clear as per their respective public declarations. Why C VAnce is now delegitimising the victim is not clear unless he wants to let DSK quickly off the hook having achieved the "primary" aim, and now having no interest in the "secondary" aim aka the girls claims. If this be the case then it becomes possible that the DAs office is part of the "official" banker's conspiracy, which has achieved its primary aim and wants DSK, defrocked Oligarch, now to go home and piss off Sarkozy, in his secondary home country, of no interest to the uber-US banker's cabal, masters of the world,  who triggered the original attack in Gotham, home of the Oligarchs, and "conspired" its expeditious execution via "the fall girl" from low down Guinea.

BTW, it appears that the woman at the head of the famous "anti-vice" squad based in Harlem has resigned last week, unexpectedly. She was the leading light in the NYPD thrust against the "vicious, woman molester", DSK, the man above the law that the law nailed. She is now toast in the internal struggle within the DA's nebulous administration...figure that out!

"Thought this was a setup to get DSK."

You thought right; you just didn't think it all the way through, Pegasus Muse.

The NYC District Attorney was well aware that his witness wasn't all that pristine, and that eventually the case would unravel, he was simply following the direction of Bloomberg, Wall Streeters and the Oval Office, and orchestrating the judicial process until Strauss-Kahn had been legally replaced as the head of the IMF.

Please note that the case against Strauss-Kahn began to almost immediately unravel as soon as what's-her-name was sworn in as the new IMF chief.

Now the IMF will go along with everyone else, which might not have been the case had Strauss-Kahn still been there --- but there remains an extremely high probability that he did indeed assault that maid.

That's the way the banksters roll.....

I don't understand how the initial accounts of the incident stated that security cameras showed her hurriedly coming from his room, being very upset and going straight to a room with a supervisor or other employees and giving a frantic account of being raped.

Now they're saying she went from his room to clean another room, and then casually going back to clean his room after he left? Something is obviously way out of whack here. Both accounts cannot be true. How could they state there was video surveillance camera evidence right after the fact, and now weeks later say that evidence shows something obviously quite different.

This certainly does not sound like someone could have just made a slight misinterpretation, or new facts came to light.

Unfortunately it sounds like someone in authority here is lying... either now, or shortly after the incident... or both.

There is no dispute anymore that a sexual encounter did happen. Not even DSK is denying it like he did in the beginning. Now the story is that it was all conscensual. His word against hers. Soooo.... DSK lawyers work to destroy the victim's credibility and they are having some success with that.

The trial has moved to prime time. Nancy Grace is on the case.

What I want to know is who the fuck was depositing $100 large into the maid's bank acct. I assume this hotel hosts many international bigwigs, and that kind of cash could easily persuade some poor African maid to spy and snoop on the guests, and was obviously enough to blow an old geezer, then cry rape.

cleaning 2 rooms after the alleged act, is not neccessary proof the rape did not happened. 

these two acts are not related per se.  cleaning the rooms after the event could be seen as a hard working women even under duress continues to perform her duties.

this ia how DA is looking at, during their extra careful investigation. 

cant afford not to investigate all sides to the story; thats why they are trusted with spending taxpayers money at their own discretion.

Do you think a jury is going to believe that after being raped you go on cleaning rooms?  As sick as this may sound, it is the payday of her life if true...  do you go on working after you've been given a winning lottery ticket?  Shower?  Hospital?  Call police? 

Juries have a hard enough time believing rape cases of this sort...  tacking on the fact that she kept working afterward???  Practically speaking, it's not good for the prosecution...

Maybe she'll fare better on her civil suit.

Exactly. But facts or even common sense don't really matter to Americans. As soon as the words "anal" and "rape" come up, they start drooling or become murderous. You can't get a better indication of neuro linguistic programming on their cultural aspirations. Even if the maid confesses to her part in the honey trap, there will still be morons wanting him dead.


"Cleaning" Jobs done:

Sarkozy (Once described to me as a nice jewish boy) remains an ardent supporter for the oil war in Libya on behalf of the US. 

Main rival for the French 2012 election removed. (Though if DSK makes a comeback, that would shadow a classic Dumas novel)

Some European background data.

Sarkó is indeed Jewish.Or half - however on his mother´s side - so I guess he has standing with the rabbis.On his father´s side he´s Hungarian.It has been purported that his father was something of small time nobility that became French after joining the Legion after 1956.My Hungarian contacts just laugh at this and point out that his name means "mudhole" or "muddy place". This is a real place in Hungary - known for it´s gypsie population.More interesting are the previous scandals paving way for Sarkó.During the run up to his election his hardest competitor fell by the wayside eliminated in a complex plot.Dominique Villepin,previous foreign minister had been fed documents that showed Sarkó to be on the take in weapons sales.These documents turned out to be surprisingly good fakes.The fact was revelead after a long trial.Villepin was eventually cleared of all accusations of slander , etc , however his bid for the presidency was shot.Villepin ha publicly stated this to be orchestrated by Sarkó and promised vengeance.

Sarkó seems to be approaching critical mass when it comes to enemies.French politics can be said to be ....interesting.

With respect, I believe you give this preposterous theater far too much respect. As with Deely Plaza & 9/11, who amongst can say for sure what they're seeing? The official story never, ever adds up. You can dismiss the parade of discrepancies in the official story as coincidence, or you can try to cobble together a theory as so many here try to do. But because the official story constantly changes, is always jangled, I don't think you can judge anyone for misinterpreting the Great Theatre of The Absurd.

His ego is large enough to bridge the difference between the office held and who he is.  He believed himself to be IMF.

Wait till DSK tells the world his version... it will make him rich...maybe even powerful if the admittance to lying is accepted by prosecution. Their whole case is built on her 100% bona fide character as honest muslim woman, no pre-record, and totally devastated state after alleged "rape". Cyrus VAnce built his whole strong suit on this. Now this all falls a part...He will have to look for another career, he blew it bad as did the NYPD investigation team who were "dead" sure. They suckered us all, he may also have been suckered by those who pull the strings on this woman.

As for DSK; if this lying thing is confirmed he will be back free in PAris with a vengeance as Monte Cristo, no longer Edmond Dantes, the damned. Watch out Sarko!, watch out.

How can MSM continue to spin this as "conspiracy theory"?  The primary challenger to the current French President and leader of the IMF (who openly wanted to remove the reserve status of the US dollar) suddenly gets accused of rape despite all evidence to the contrary.  Like others have pointed out, he had breakfast RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET, then went to the airport, phoned the hotel about his missing cell phone...Yeah, that certainly sounds like a rapist trying to flee the country.

THEN add that the maid was paid off to the tune of 100K...YUP.  Nothing to see here people!

Sat, 07/02/2011 - 08:38 | 1421082 nmewn

Lets stay with the known facts shall we?

"Like others have pointed out, he had breakfast RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET, then went to the airport, phoned the hotel about his missing cell phone...Yeah, that certainly sounds like a rapist trying to flee the country."

The "incident" occurred just after noon, around 12:15 PM EST.

He checked out of the hotel and "appears to be in a hurry" at 12:28.

He took a cab to a restaurant.

He had lunch, not breakfast, at McCormick & Schmicks with his daughter. Her boyfriend arrived late toward the end of the meal. His story (DSK's) is that he came to NYC to meet the new boyfriend.

The restaurant is eight blocks away, not right across the street. 

He left the restaurant around 2:15 by cab and called his daughter back at the restaurant to look for one of his cell phones and called his wife.

Arrives at JFK by cab at 3:00 PM.

Airport security cameras show him being escorted through security (no TSA pat downs for DSK?) to the first class lounge...3:28.

His daughter has not found his cell phone and he calls the hotel around 3:29. At 3:42 they (the hotel) call him and tell him they have his cell phone and it will be delivered to him at the airport.

4:30 he is in first class aboard an Air France jet.

4:40 he leaves his seat, summoned to the door of the aircraft by airport? police.

4:45 he is told NYPD wants to speak with him about an incident at the hotel.

5:00 he is arrested.

Sometime between 4:45-5:15 he claims diplomatic immunity, which he knows (or should have known) he does not have.

You're welcome.

I will not be popular for this but here goes.

You have been raped. You are screwed up and stunned. You clean another room, you know this fucker is a rich white man and you are a lowly maid. You later step forward and tell your story, but lie about what you did afterwards because you know it does not sound good to admit you went on to clean a room. Later, others have evidence you cleaned a room. You fucked up and your life is up in flames.

This is all fiction at this point, we don't know enough. I'm sure I enjoyed cracking on this guy (it's too easy). If she has a big bank account somewhere, I'll shut up. But this "lie" of hers may not be anything more than her trying to get her story in line with how she thinks a victim should have reacted. When you have been assaulted, you are in a scrambled kind of disjointed auto pilot haze. Life is surreal. You just hope to God you can find "normal" again in your life, ever, someday.

If she was dealing drugs or laundering money for druggies or whomever then

would you think it her first choice to go to the cops , she has to know that

she is going to be the focus of hell in this case.

I expect something close to a rape did happen and it makes perfect sense that she would

not be in a hurry to bring in the cops as she knows there is some dirty laundry

they will find.


Nothing strange expect for the idiots on here who have no clue.

If she brings this upfront and some "dude" gets caught up then her (near) rape wasn't a death sentence?

Alternate Theory

You are in an American city where you can buy any hooker from the $20 BJ (inflation from the $2 days) to the $10,000 per evening centerfold.  You are savvy enough to know rape in the U.S. is the rest of your life in prison.

Even an unsavory character like DSK would not be that stupid. N'est pas ??

Hi Kayan,

Very sensible. What if he is what they call a sadistic rapist? He needs resistance to get in the mood. A hooker can play act, but damn, you know it is play acting. Or if he is a power rapist, he is not looking to the rape for sex, he is looking for a sense of power and control, the ability to punish with his sex. Then there are other rapists who have the fantasy that she will resist at first, but later get into it. This will be your serial rapist (so I doubt this one) but it is not always about smart or stupid. It is about urges that are really hard to shut down. Normal folks have shades of them, but we have enough frontal lobe control we don't act on it. Others, not so much. This guy has enough impulse control to become the head of the IMF, so this is evidence that supports your stance, not mine. But what if there are times or stressors that put him in a place, just every now and then, when he just can't resist. I will conclude by saying, again, I don't know, but I can write some stories where she is hard to put on the stand, but she may not be lying.

Fri, 07/01/2011 - 20:18 | 1420521 nmewn

Another alternate theory...

You have come to an American city all by yourself, unconnected to any official business whatsoever, without wife, family or friends. Why?

You call up your favorite escort service and find that your favorite dominatrix has moved on to a more dimly lit dungeon. The little blue pill has made the blood rush to your head to such a level its splitting the skin open ;-)

You decide to take a cold shower.

You emerge from the shower unrelieved, frustrated and find the chambermaid going about her work and you think to yourself bonne chance! I shall claim droit du souverain, for I am DSK, lord & master of my domain.

Its not like this hasn't happened before. With power comes responsibility. The powerful but weak of character can never handle it.

He lied initially saying he did not have sex with her. Then claimed it was consensual sex. The social mores of France are such that they allow for sex aside from your spouse, so why lie in the first?

As for her, she knew her own life story. If media reports are to be believed, she was involved in some sort of money laundering operation. She would also know that her past & present circumstances would be why would she go to the police over something that was consensual knowing she would be exposing herself to investigation?
