Yeah but again those multiple witnesses are anonymous, and noone has been able to confirm their identity, credibility, and even existence. This seems to exist entirely on paper.
I could file a lawsuit tomorrow that says you aggressively touched my pooperhole in 1996. with as many pieces of paper signed by anonymous witnesses as I wanted. And provided I did the paper work right. And you couldn’t get off a quick motion of dismissal based on an airtight alibi. Well it would look very much like this case does on paper. Claims made, case on the docket. Nothing further. Despite that being pretty impossible (I don’t know who you are, and I’m pretty sure noone aggressively touched my pooperhole).
And there’s never been any evidence of the very similar conspiracies about Trump and Epstein. Until this curiously evidence light (at the moment) law suit. In the absence of solid info about the accuser and law suit itself, which makes this thing a shrug really. I can’t help but poke the rest of it with a stick to try and get a read on it. And as I said if there was just one. One journalist who could get further than “I may have talked with the victim, but I don’t know, so I wont publish” most of these concerns would disappear.
All we know for certain so far is an accusation has been made, and Trump is definitely a piece of shit. This isn’t like the other accusations against him where we have detail and multiple named, on the record witnesses. Or in at least 2 cases actual testimony in court.
That’s a common dog whistle to anti-vaccinationists. Its drawn directly from their arguments. But its a common stance taken by those who support the anti-vaccine movement but don’t want to be publicly labeled as anti-vaccine. It’s not a more nuanced, or even different, position. Its ass-coverage, pandering with plausible deniability.
The key problem I have is that there isn’t much to know. Beyond the headline info, and details from the filing. There really isn’t much. Even the accusers own lawyers don’t seem to be able to get much further than that. And journalists attempting to report on this properly hit a wall trying. Unable to vet the accusations themselves they stumble on a lot of weird on the periphery. That weird tends to cast doubt, but its all circumstantial. Doesn’t speak directly to the claims being made in anyway.
