Skip to comments.DA set to drop charges vs. DSK
Posted on 07/05/2011 5:36:41 AM PDT by iowamark
Prosecutors will agree to drop the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn -- either on his next court date in two weeks or even sooner, according to a top investigator in the case who called the eventual dismissal "a certainty."
"We all know this case is not sustainable," the source told The Post...
"In the past, guests have left stuff for her," meaning money, one source close to the defense investigation said last night. "She goes back to look for the money," and is disappointed, the source said. Also likely irking the maid? "His dismissive nature," said the source.
Multiple investigators for the defense and prosecution have confirmed that they believe the maid was turning tricks at the hotel, and prosecution sources have even accused her of continuing to "entertain" male visitors while in a DA safehouse...
For six weeks, the maid told investigators a credible and compelling story about her travails of rape and beatings in escaping Guinea's violent regime, and about her alleged re-victimization last month by Strauss-Kahn.
"One-hundred-percent consistent," one top investigator called her first month-and-a-half of statements. "Rock solid," another top investigator said.
Only eight days ago did the maid's story fall apart, according to two top investigators on the case, and Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. made what they termed the courageous decision to inform the defense and agree to release Strauss-Kahn without bail.
Officials realized that for six weeks, ever since the May 14 incident, she had bamboozled some of the best minds in the storied Manhattan DA's Office, including a trio of seasoned top investigators with a combined 75 years in the business -- Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, Ann Prunty and Chief DA Investigator Rob Mooney.
Vance "put his very best, most intelligent people on this -- and eventually, we found the truth," said one top investigator...

Will DSK wind up the Socialist President of France because of this?
What about theft of services?
DSK should be rightfully PO’d about this - but as a politician he needs to act a certain way if he expects to regain his stature
He should go to France and PRAISE the USA for continuing to investigate even after the arrest, otherwise he would be still charged.
The secretly go to work behind the scenes to destroy Obama (like they usually do)
I firmly believe Obambi and the chicago thugs had something to do with this. Especially since a Chicago associate of Obama was named head of the IMF
It’s hard to say whether this will hurt his chances.
Although rape wsn’t shown, the people of his past that have come forward have prettywell slimed him, but like I say the French don’t mind a little slime.
I want him out of the country, and I especially want her out of the country.
Pinging the Duke Lax Ping List with the question of the day:
Is Cy Vance, Jr. the “New Nifong?”
So what was written on his prison cell....Bubba was here?? Yeh, right...
Just think about how we treated this guy and how we treat/treated Bubba...What a bunch of disgusting jerks the Dems are.
Pretty amazing tale. I have to say this was a case where knowing DSK’s reputation led me to conclude he was guilty.
I still don’t think he can be elected French president after this episode though.
And remember, Bubba's reputation preceded his election as Prez....
It’s the Clinton dance. First these socialist mama’s boyz idiots surrender to feminists and then they complain of bogus charges leveled against them.
DSK got a much better deal than the Duke Lacross dudes, and I simply do not know why.
I don’t think the new head of the IMF is an Obama tug pal.
She is French and conservative. She worked in a law office in Chicago, but that does not mean she has any connection to Obama.
DSK says "I don't want to leave....I love NY....I want another shot at the apple."
And we can't make him leave!!
I hope Vasnce chokes on the next bite of an apple.
Yes, Chicago Thugs are somehow involved in this. Either they saw an opportunity after DSK was accused and jumped in, or they set this up. They want to rule the world.
>>> Cy Vance, the son of Jimmy Carter’s Secretary of State, blows another case
Not really. Far as I can see the DA did his job.
A credible criminal complaint was made and the state was obligated to act. Even after arrest they continued the investigation with an open mind and learned their witness was unreliable. And did so before indictment. A lot got done in a fairly short time.
Contrast to Durham, NC.
There was a reason that spies were most often women.
What is this? A liberal is about to admit that a woman may have lied about a rape? Oops, I forgot. They only lie when the perp is a leftist. What was I thinking?
That's not been established yet. There are reports that the complaining witness's story began to fall apart almost immediately.
Even after arrest they continued the investigation with an open mind and learned their witness was unreliable. And did so before indictment. A lot got done in a fairly short time.
Actually, DSK was indicted.
So will she now be booted back to Guinea, where she belongs?
She'll probably be turning tricks in NYC for the rest of her life. Gloria Alred is probably in the wings along with a multimedia contract and a reality show. She is now victimization royalty.
Sounds like he wasn’t the ONLY one blowing a case.
Naw....she'll wear her Muzzie veil for a while and disappear into the crowd. We don't even really know if that's her real name...
I'm inclined to think she is part of "a group".
Hillary was really, really pleased with the new head of the IMF....and Hillary and Obama are from where??
The Head of the IMF is traditionally a European...The head of the World Bank is traditionally an American...
I think Hillary is after the World Bank job and whoever said she was interested in the IMF made a mistake. The change in the head of the World Bank comes in 2012.
Being head of the World Bank might make Obama bow to her and she's a revenge person.
Banon, the journalist who said DSK tried to rape her....writes for a pro-Sarkosy site.
They keep inferring that she is part of the "DSK" party via her mother's connection. And Banon's godmother is DSK's second wife.
His picture at DrudgeReport this morning looks like he’s pulling up his britches as he is released from arrest!
I had wondered on another DSK thread if Nifong had gone to work in NY. The DA was going to lower bail and wanted DSK to plead to a misdemeanor, and DSK and his lawyer said no deal.
Christine Lagarde was a partner in an international law firm headquartered in Chicago. She specialized in antitrust law (from Wikipedia). I would bet dollars to doughnuts she never had any contact with Obama until two or three years ago. I would not be surprised if she crossed paths with Hilary in the past few year.
I stand corrected on the indictment. Arrested on the 14th and indicted on the 19th.
I don’t know if that’s standard for NYC but that is too fast for obvious reasons.
If Vance did fasttrack the case unnecessarily, then yes, he blew it.
Narcozy is Company's asset. So he has two circles of protection - Company and his DGSE dogs.
Both incompetent. The botched case leads directly or indirectly to Zero. DSK was in DC the day before "rape" but it is not publicly known whom he met there and how the meeting went.
I wonder how much time will pass until maid is pulled from Hudson river.
