Following the judge’s decision to declare a mistrial in the sexual assault trial of Bill Cosby, the comedy icon’s wife is breaking her silence to hurl some scathing words at the District Attorney, the judge, the media and the 60-plus women who have come forward to accuse her husband of sexual assault.
“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious,” said Camille Cosby in a statement, read by a spokesperson after the judge announced his decision to declare a mistrial.
“How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney,” she added. “How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical.”
She also heaped scorn on media coverage of the accusations against her husband. “How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life,” she continued.
“Historically, people have challenged injustices. I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision….ultimately, that is a manifestation of justice, based on facts, not lies,” she stated. “As a very special friend once stated, ‘truth can be subdued, but not destroyed.'”
She also thanked lawyers Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa and spokesperson Andrew Wyatt, along with the their staff, as well as offering thanks “to our children, grandchildren, and other family who loves us… and to our dear friends and supporters, who never gave up on us, despite it all.”
Although the case ended in a mistrial, District Attorney Kevin Steele immediately announced plans to retry Cosby on the same charges, promising to “move the case forward as soon as possible.”
