United States, Mr War, ROY discussed on Dr. Drew Midday Live with Mike Catherwood


Any case ah my client beverley nelson young nelson uh came forward because she thought it was important share what she alleges were her experiences with this two more when sues she was fifteen and sixteen years old she vies with few exceptions kept a secret for more than forty years except that she did disclose what she alleges occurred with mr more to some close family members and but she didn't because she was in fear of his two more the power that he had disclose it uh to others other than family members but now she's broken her silence and uh she gave me and us our permission permission does feature of family members which we did including her sister whom she told uh two years after the alleged incident her mom who has said that she completely believes her daughter and that her daughter would tell the truth even if it hurts um and uh and others so here's the really big point we wanna make which is we have volunteered to have beverley testify under oath to the statement she made at the press conference on monday uh to the united states senate judiciary committee and we want them to hold a public hearing as soon as possible uh within the next two weeks and then show answer any questions voluntarily under oath at the senators have for her that might be relevant to her allegations against mr war and we would like them to subpoena roy more to the committee and have him answer questions uh under oath if he wants to deny it let them do so under cross examination by the senators and under oath so yesterday i did send a letter email it to the united states and it's just sure committee and also to the us senate select committee on ethics asking them to hold the hearings so were we are awaiting their response and uh let's see what happens now i don't know if they'll have a hearing i don't know if he will be subpoenaed and if he is the pena that appears whether he will take the fifth amendment privilege against selfincrimination or not uh but what's interesting is uh what his approach has been to this and of course beverley is the fifth woman to come forward the first four were interviewed by the washington post and as far as i can tell beverley is the first one to actually speak out on television.

Coming up next
