Dominique Strauss-Kahn Released; Defense Declares Case 'Not What It Appeared to Be'


Dominique Strauss-Kahn Case Called Into Question

The Times noted that among the discoveries are "possible links to criminal activities, including drug dealing and money laundering."

According to the Times, "the woman had a phone conversation with an incarcerated man within a day of her encounter with Mr. Strauss-Kahn in which she discussed the possible benefits of pursuing the charges against him. The conversation was recorded."

That man, as the Times reported, had been arrested on charges of possessing 400 pounds of marijuana. He was among a number of individuals who made multiple cash deposits into the woman's bank account.

Strauss-Kahn, a leading candidate for the French presidency before being accused of sexually assaulting the woman, resigned his powerful position as head of the IMF in the wake of the allegations against him.
