"Obviously, the allegations are not true"

LOL. There's nothing "obvious" about his innocence.

if he is a rapist with one accusation, it is “he said she said”. So if someone was trying to frame him, they would need more than one woman to accuse him for the cops to believe it.

If he raped two women within the last few weeks, then there should be a history of him raping in the past. Most such rapists are serial rapists (remember Kennedy’s nephew, Smith? He raped the girl and got off, but three other women reported he violently attacked them in the past, but the information wasn’t allowed for his trial.

If he was always a perfect gentlemen with women, never pushed them into sex, never hit any, and then suddenly raped two women right after he attacked the US, then I wonder about conspiracy theories too. Sorry.

Hopefully they’ll send him to the PMITA prison, not the golf course prison.

Looks like the charges have been dropped.

This whole story is simply bizarre. And somebody in a government somewhere f'ed up big time if they filed false charges, cause it will only embolden everything he does.
