A new attorney for Bill Cosby vigorously defended the entertainer in an exclusive interview on Good Morning America Wednesday, chastising the media for “misrepresenting” what he said in a deposition for a lawsuit he settled in 2006.
“There are a thousand-plus pages that are available of Mr. Cosby in his own words, and what we’re seeing so far are headlines that are grabbing one excerpt or two and misinterpreting them,” Monique Pressley told the morning show.
“The deposition said that there was use of Quaaludes, which was done often in the ’70s,” she said.
“It was considered a party drug called ‘disco biscuits’ and it was something that was done frequently, not just by Mr. Cosby but other entertainers,” Pressley said.
She also addressed the allegations of the nearly 50 women who say Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them.
“I’m not making conclusions – and you know that I can’t – about whether someone is lying or not,” she says.“What I am saying is that Mr. Cosby has denied the accusations that have been lodged thus far,” she says. “The sheer volume or number of people who are saying a particular thing does not make it true.”
