Trudeau Accuser Makes First Public Statement Since Groping Allegations

Published

on

The accuser of avowed male feminist and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doubled down on accusations that she was groped, responding to Trudeau’s denial, according to Yahoo.

“I issue this statement reluctantly, in response to mounting media pressure to confirm that I was the reporter who was the subject of the Open Eyes editorial, published in the Creston Valley Advance in August of 2000,” said Rose Knight in a statement to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

“The incident referred to in the editorial did occur, as reported. Mr Trudeau did apologize the next day,” said Knight, a former journalist. “I did not pursue the incident at the time and will not be pursuing the incident further. I have had no subsequent contact with Mr Trudeau, before or after he became prime minister.”

Trudeau responded to the allegations last week.

“I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way, but I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently,” he said.

Knight said that she does not intend to pursue the allegations any further, and apparently Trudeau does not either. He did not respond directly reporters’ questions when they asked about future plans to address the situation.

“Often a man experiences an interaction as being benign or not inappropriate and a woman, particularly in a professional context, can experience it differently. We have to respect that,” Trudeau said.
