Karen Monahan, the woman who claims that Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison (MN) abused her while the two were in a relationship, released what appears to be medical records on Wednesday that show she told her physician in 2017 that Ellison had physically and emotionally abused her and that she was afraid to speak up because she feared retribution.
Monahan released a photo of her medical report from 11/28/2017 on a Twitter account identified by numerous media outlets as being her account.
“She states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated,” the report states. “She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly.”
The Free Beacon notes that Monahan claims that Ellison abused her as recently as 2016 and that “she agreed to sit down with investigators to discuss Ellison’s abuse, but he declined a meeting with her.”
In a separate tweet this week, Monahan slammed the Democratic Party for its hypocrisy after it has encouraged the nation to believe Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser but has refused to take her allegations seriously.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez told The Washington Post’s “Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart” on Tuesday that he rebuilt trust in the DNC by hiring Ellison.
