I've been waiting to speak with my lawyer before talking about Nevada. For reasons beyond my control, that has proven impossible. But I want to address a few things. /1

1: I will not respond to questions until I can speak with a lawyer, but Ms. Kristin Davison's account of events is mistaken. I do not know if she is lying, because I think it is possible she believes I'm responsible for her bruising and arm-twisting.

2: From the video I have in my possession, it does appear as if Ms. Davison's arm was grabbed and twisted. The same man also rubbed himself against her in an extremely in appropriate way. In the video, you can see my hands at all times, and they were never on Ms. Davison

3. The reason I'm unwilling to accuse Ms. Davison of lying is that the video clearly shows she could not see who was hurting her. And I think it would only be natural for her to think her political opponent was the person responsible.

4. On the other hand, in Ms. Davison's public statements since this, she's embellished, exaggerated and generally made this as bad as it could be for me, my reputation (and for my family). For ex., on Fox she stated as fact that I pushed another woman to the ground.

5. Not only was this untrue, but last month I was found not guilty, with the judge pronouncing me "highly credible" after watching the video and heating my testimony. The fact is, and my testimony is public on this, that Heather Swift hip checked me, then lied about it.

6. If there is one good thing about working as a hybrid tracker/reporter it is that if you are doing your job right, there will always be video. There was in that case, and there is in this Nevada case.

7. Until I speak with my attorney, I've got nothing more to say except that the narrative set by GOP operatives is false and (not coincidentally... Very self-serving). My hands were never on Ms. Davison in any meaningful way. Video will make that clear.

8. I will not release the video before speaking with my lawyer. To be perfectly honest, the video is not flattering for me (even as it, I believe, it totally exonerates me), and it does show Ms. Davison in distress. My fear is it will be used for political purposes.

9. That said, through my attorney, I expect to release the video to the proper Nevada authorities at the right time. I'm hopeful that after they review it, all charges against me will be dropped.

10. I do not assault or batter women. Or anyone else. Period. And if necessary, I will prove that in court once again.

Yeah, I'm an attorney. UVa Law '09. Willing to take legal risk (in my judgment minimal) so I don't leave deplorable allegations unchallenged. It's my reputation in jeopardy; I've got to protect myself from the immediate harm.

I believe THIS victim. A microphone and press credential does not give you the right to assault. At least you admit the video shows your true self which is why you don’t want to release it

Hang him! Guilty! Unworthy! Scourge of the earth! Unfit to breathe! He's been accused, so therefore he has to be quilty! What's that? He's a Democrap? Oh nevermind! Can't possibly be a thread of truth then, RIGHT? More than a shade of bias here.
