I can see the possibility. It's kind of ridiculous, but I won't discount that theory out of hand.
But we certainly live in unusual times when a professional decides that for the sake of her career, when she is handled a major case of national interest, her best bet is to screw the whole thing up by writing an affidavit which makes her look like a fool. An unusual strategy for career success.
Perhaps she was persuaded to sacrifice her career with a flimsy charge/evidence scenario, just to get past the “we just want him to be arrested” crowds. They possibly believe this case cannot result in a conviction, and have just gone through the motions, with no real meat to the charges or anticipated outcome.
