Prosecution find credibility issues for accuser in the Strauss-Kahn case

(CNN) - Prosecutors will notify the court Friday of troubling believability issues with the woman once called extremely credible in her sexual assault allegations against former International Monetary Fund Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, a source familiar with the case told CNN.

The issues were disclosed Thursday by prosecutors in a meeting with Strauss-Kahn's defense, the official said. The credibility problems are expected to be explained in a letter expected to be filed Friday by prosecutors with the court, the source said.

This morning, Criminal Defense Attorney and former Prosecutor Paul Callan joins American Morning to talk about the future of the case.

    It would take the allegations of rape to another level if the maid was discovered to be a drug dealer sharing her profits with the employees union. The maid was illiterate and could not read or write, but she knew her way around the drug and prostitution business making her qualified to be hired in the best hotel. She was forced to kickback most of her earnings and kept very little for herself making her a black slave and the union her pimp. The 15 private investigators hired by DSK have uncovered this information and DSK is now in the position to sue NYC for billions after the rape charges are dropped.

    What’s with these 100K deposited in her bank account? Was it a lump sum? Apparently not. Where did it go? How come they said how much was deposited, but not how much was spent? Did she just spend it herself? Why live in some crummy apartment, if some one was giving her an allowance? Was it not an allowance? Did somebody else spend the money in her name?

    The other thing is where she was that morning, the rooms she went to. Had she planned something in advance? Or did she usually go in several rooms everyday, and sometimes repeatedly? Why did she not tell prosecutors she went into a room for two minutes? Is that important? What difference could that make?

    How come this other hotel guy told her DSK’s room was empty?

    The recorded prison phone call. Why wasn’t the entire phone call leaked? The phrase that was leaked certainly smears her completely and was this why just this tidbit was leaked? What else did she say? Could she not know the conversation was being recorded or did she know?

    Someone has said she received tips as a prostitute. From whom? How many men could DSK buy to say that now? It doesn’t seem like it would be such a hard thing to do with his kind of money. Who are these men? Will they come out and show their faces?

    The forensic evidence–her lawyer has given some graphic details, but not enough from a legal standpoint. Exactly what does it prove about him?
