All that defamation of character and slander against Nafissatou Diallo, the Sofitel maid who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has paid off for that old French perv.
Investigators expect all charges in New York City’s case against Strauss-Kahn to be dropped soon.
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 exclusively yesterday.
“Her credibility is so bad now, we know we cannot sustain a case with her,” the source said, referring to the Guinean hotel maid who accused Strauss-Kahn of trying to rape her in his plush Midtown hotel suite — shocking charges that got the international banker bounced as head of the IMF and also derailed, at least for now, his bid to become president of France.
“She is not to be believed in anything that comes out of her mouth — which is a shame, because now we may never know what happened in that hotel room,” said the source, who is at the center of the investigation and would speak only on the condition of anonymity.
“Did [Strauss-Kahn] use force? Was there actually a crime? I don’t think we’ll ever know.”
Meanwhile, defense sources described a different scenario, in which DSK admittedly engaged with the maid in a consensual, sex-for-money exchange in his Sofitel suite, with no force involved — and she turned against him only when he stiffed her.
“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 those of you who don’t like seeing rich men get away with thinking their wallet allows them to take advantage of women, there is a little bit of good news in this situation.
