Bill Cosby, Brett Kavanaugh Are Victims of 'a Sex War' in D.C., Sexual Predator's Publicist Says

After actor Bill Cosby was sentenced to prison time, his publicist, Andrew Wyatt, told reporters that the trial is not only "racist" and "sexist" but that his trial was also part of a "sex war" going on in Washington, D.C., today.

In light of the highly publicized trial, Wyatt told reporters it's important to point out that this was the "most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States."

"Dr. Cosby has been one of the greatest Civil Rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years," he said. "He has also been one of the greatest educators of men and boys over the last 50 years."

Wyatt claimed that neither of those points were considered by the jury or allowed in court because of the media's "racist" and "sexist" denouncement of Cosby. Wyatt also took umbrage with the choice of people to testify against the comedian.

"All three of the psychologists who testified against Dr. Cosby were white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators," he said.

Wyatt added that the prosecutors worked with anti-Black and anti-male activist groups throughout the trial to create publicity against him. Then, Wyatt related Cosby's trial with the accusation facing Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

"What is going on in Washington today is part of that sex war that Judge [ Steven] O'Neill along with his wife are a part of," he said.

After Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford wrote a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein. In the letter, Ford claimed that during a party in high school, Kavanaugh forced her into a bedroom and attempted to take her clothes off. Feinstein, with Ford's approval, made the letter public and has since called for the FBI to investigate the claim before the Senate votes on the judge's nomination.

Ford recently agreed to testify before the Senate about what happened, which has since been scheduled for Thursday.

Kavanaugh repeatedly denied the claim and during an interview with Fox News on Monday, explained that he was a virgin during the years the assault allegedly took place. He also wrote a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee expressing that he was willing to discuss the accusation.

The recent accusation has been met with mixed reactions and some have sided with Feinstein in calling for a thorough investigation. Others claimed it's simply an attempt to block another Conservative judge from gaining a seat on the Supreme Court.

During his remarks on Tuesday, Wyatt declared that Cosby's legal team would prove that the Montgomery County District Attorney used falsified evidence during both trials when he introduced what he claimed to be an accurate recording of Cosby's conversation with Andrea Constand. He said his team investigated the recording and found that the tapes had been tampered with.

On Tuesday, O'Neill sentenced Cosby to anywhere from three to 10 years in state prison and ruled him to be a "sexually violent predator." He was convicted on three counts of sexual assault in April, but prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to merge them into one conviction due to them occurring during the same event.
