Breaking news in DSK Sexual Assualt Case

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/americas/sex-assault-case-against-strauss-kahn-near-collapse-nyt/article2083120/

CBS News) 

Law enforcements officials have told The New York Times that the sexual assault case against former International Monetary Fund chairman Dominique Strauss-Kahn could soon collapse because they have uncovered "major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper" who filed the charges.

If true, these new developments represent a stunning reversal of fortune for Strauss-Kahn, whose financial and political career all but disintegrated when he was arrested just six weeks ago.

"It's not at all unusual for defense attorneys to attack the credibility of alleged witnesses in a case - you see it all the time. It is very unusual to see the prosecution questioning the credibility of their own witnesses, especially in a case as high profile as this," CBS News legal analyst Jack Ford said on "The Early Show."

"When you have that coming from the prosecution side as reportedly it is here, that means there's some possibility for some seismic changes in the case."

Dominique Strauss-Kahn case crumbling?

The woman, a 32-year-old from Guinea, charged that Strauss-Kahn assaulted her and forced her to commit a sex act when he came upon her while she was cleaning his $3,000-a-night suite at New York's Sofitel Hotel. Forensic evidence confirms a sexual encounter between the two took place.

But now, prosecutors "do not believe much of what the accuser has told them," and they say she has "repeatedly lied."

Investigators also reportedly have evidence that could link the unidentified woman to drug dealing and money laundering, reports CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano.

In one recorded phone call - placed the day after the encounter - she spoke to a man in prison about "the possible benefits of pursuing the charging against him."

"There are a couple of things that the prosecution can be questioning here," said Ford. "They could be questioning whether the facts that she's given them are in fact true. Or they could be questioning just whether her background is so questionable that it would be difficult for them to put her on the stand and expect the jurors to believe them.

"Defense attorneys have the ability to question an alleged victim about a lot of things, not just what happened then, and one of the things defense attorneys always try to do, to stress if somebody is unreliable. You could anticipate if this ever went to trial defense attorneys would be focusing on all these other things to get jurors to believe she's not telling the truth.

"So we don't know exactly what's going on here," said Ford, "but it is a big deal for them to be questioning the integrity of their own witness."

CBS News has been told charges against Strauss-Kahn are not expected to be dropped, but his extraordinary bail arrangement will be reviewed by a judge when Strauss-Kahn and his attorney return to federal court later today.

Strauss-Kahn - who was considered a strong contender for the French presidency before the May 14 charges were filed - paid a $6 million cash bail after his initial court appearance. He also spends an estimated $200,000 a month on security guards and surveillance cameras.

Now that bail and those required security measures may be substantially reduced, and he could be released on his own recognizance.

"It's not unusual to go back to a judge during the course of a case and ask for changes to be made in bail," said Ford. "But those changes are usually requested by the prosecution when they say, 'We've got more information, we've got more bad stuff on this guy, we want to you jack this all up.' For the defense to come in and say, 'We want you now to change this, make it less restrictive,' it means there has to be something.

"Maybe the judge will be told off the record in a conference with both sides or maybe it'll come on the record, but it really strongly suggests there are very, very serious problems here, and even the prosecution is backing away from [Strauss-Kahn] at this point."

You can't make this stuff up...

You can't make this stuff up. The purpose of the event was to move DSK out and replace him with a shill.

Keep your eye on the ball.

Bingo---Enter Christine Lagarde. Sarkozy didn't want a challenge as he knew DSK was planning on running for his position. So they took him out and replaced him with a manipulable character who was curiously the French finance minister. Notice they hurried to appoint her before these revelations surfaced about the credibility of the witness against DSK.

There was also an unsubstantiated rumor that DSK had some "inside" info about the USA gold holdings, but I never heard anything more about that.

Of Course! I also found it funny that there was this fake "consideration" for a non-European IMF Hack.  Central Bank of Mexico Governor Agustin Carstens was "considered" in order to appear as if they were open to a hack that was out side of the manipulable tentacles of the European Union Hack Mafia. 

WAS THERE ANY QUESTION WHICH HACK WOULD GET IT?

conspiracy

Can you believe that some people are actually paranoid enough to think that decisions regarding global finance are governed by conspiracies between select groups of people? I mean, Dominique Strauss-Kahn speculated that a trumped-up sex charge would materialize against him. Crazy, huh?

Oh wait ... That happened? And then he lost his chance at an immensely powerful leadership position?

Well, it couldn't be a conspiracy. That's just crazy talk.

[sarcasm ends]

On the plus side, since DSK is Jewish and his replacement isn't, the fact that he was gutted by his peers kinda puts the kibosh on the whole "Jews run the banking system" theory.

Well, what ever the real reason is, I'm glad I don't Bank with the IMF. Wait!, I can't believe I just said that! Not only is my tax money used by the IMF, my whole way of life is governed by this Mafia. Is this a wonder world or what?

DSK False Flag

The truth in the DSK case is no longer relevant.

The false flag was a success, and DSK has been removed from a position of influence.

Notice the parallels between DSK, Spitzer, JFK, Blagojevich, Assange and others ...they all challenged the integrity of the fiat system and were taken out using varying tactics. Three via sex scandal; one via "corruption" (I guess they couldn't get Rod's rod to hook up with a hooker) and JFK via terminal dismissal.

What amazes me even more is

What amazes me even more is the deafening silence in the mainstream media.

The character assassination has been completed, so it's business as usual.

Things like this really make me wonder in what kind of "democratic and free" Matrix we all live in...
