7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Prime Minister Morrison explains why Linda Reynolds called Brittany Higgins a ‘lying cow’ | 7NEWS” – below is their description.
Defence Minister Linda Reynolds has not directly denied calling Brittany Higgins a “lying cow” following her former staffer’s allegation she was sexual assaulted in the minister’s office in 2019.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison says that she made the comment in her private office to staff members “after a stressful week”.
“She was not making those comments, as she said to me this morning, in relation to the allegation of sexual assault. She was not saying that about that at all. Her comments she said to me, related to the further commentary about levels of support provided, her frustrations about how she felt that they (government) were doing everything that they believed in their power to provide support. Clearly over a period of time there is a very different view about that,” – Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
It comes as the PM described the allegations against Christian Porter as “harrowing” both for him and the alleged victim’s family he is digging in against calls for an independent inquiry saying the police are the only ones to investigate these sorts of claims and they have already said the case is closed.
