Stephanopoulos Grills Cosby Lawyer: ‘All of These Women are Liars?’

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 8.42.25 AMGood Morning America host George Stephanopoulos grilled Monique Pressley, a new attorney for comedian Bill Cosby, on the dozens of rape allegations against the actor Wednesday morning.

According to the New York Times, Pressley’s appearance is part of a new PR push but Cosby’s team, which senses he’s losing the battle in ye olde court of public opinion.

Pressley denounced the release of a deposition in which Cosby is seen admitting he gave women drugs before having sex with them. Cosby’s legal team is pursuing action against the plaintiff in that case for violating the term of the settlement.

“What we’re seeing so far are headlines grabbing one excerpt or two and then misinterpreting them,” Pressley said. “What we’re looking at now is a situation where we started with a man who had not been charged with a crime, who has not been convicted of a crime, but instead has been accused of criminal activity.”

“All of these women are liars?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“The sheer volume or number of people who are saying a particular thing does not make it true,” Pressley responded, adding that Cosby did not more publicly rebut the charges because he chose to do so in legal settings.
