    She succeeded in destroying his reputation and truncated his ambition to become the next France President. This is what most women do all over the world. Bring a man down

      Oh please? Innocent until proven guilty Oscar – this was prejudged by the press. Give it time and you will see why the DA dropped this high profile case – it wasn't winnable because of her own decption and lies. This is not the right example to be used by rights groups to support real victims of abuse.

      Both politically correct and angry. A made up mind is hard to change even when beat over the head with facts. The DA wanted to go to trail but did not have a case. P A Y...A T T E N T I O N to something other than the truth according to you.

    I've heard stranger things in my life and men in positions of power REALLY get away with some crazy stuff...I wouldn't be surprised if he killed her and tied her up in his room, took a picture with the body and STILL got the case dropped! I am not closed to the idea that she could have been lying, but I could not personally see choosing to "tell all" to Robin Roberts (as cool as she is, don't get me wrong) before it even got to trial. That made her look bad. She probably settled out of court and got deported for overstaying her visa.... smh

    I think it was a set up and I did not understand why he had to resign from his job?Maybe whether it was true or false the man in his position had a responsibility to act rather run away like other leader(s) in some countries?
