The Woman Who Accused Justin Trudeau of Groping Her Breaks Her Silence; Here’s What She Said

Published

Self-proclaimed feminist Justin Trudeau has found himself in quite a pickle lately.

The #MeToo movement is turning out to be a bit of a double-edged sword for male feminists; it gives them a fun new movement to rally behind and get themselves some extra political points, but, like many have discovered, it also means that every woman you’ve ever so much as looked at inappropriately now has new confidence with which to come out of the woodwork and tell the world what a pig you are.

In the case of Trudeau, his accuser came out 18 years ago; but her story has received new attention in the era of #MeToo.

In 2000, a young unnamed reporter penned an anonymous column in which she accused Trudeau, who was at the time the Prime Minister’s son, of groping her at a charity concert.

Back then, he apologized, one might say quite weakly, saying “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward.”

In other words, “If I’d known you were going to tell anyone I wouldn’t have touched you.”

He’s maintained that he cannot recall “anything negative” transpiring between the two of them, which sounds suspiciously like Kevin Spacey’s response when Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him when Rapp was only 14.

“I’ve been working very hard to try and piece it together, and even when the original editorial came out at the time I was fairly confident, I was very confident, that I hadn’t acted in a way that I felt was in any way inappropriate,” he said on Thursday, according to NPR.

Now, the woman, who has remained unnamed up until this point, has come forward in a statement that was released on Twitter:

“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,” she wrote, explaining she’d remained silent out of concern for her family’s safety.

“The debate, if it continues, will continue without my involvement,” she added.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
