Today, I begin to properly defend myself. I'm going to try without any kind of doubt that I am innocent of all charges of rape. Today, I'm going to focus on "The Original Sin" (Keri Claussen), the statement that created this crazy stack of my #MeToo. Stay tuned! We will share the information of today... and tomorrow, And the case of Jenny Lumet. My intention is not to reduce the #MeToo movement of all modes, but instead to hold my accusers accountable. #NotMe Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #Metoo . It is only a statement about my innocence.
