“He is now being used by the Manhattan District Attorney as a pawn in a scorched earth attempt to harm the former president,” the spokesman said.

“The district attorney is bringing a criminal prosecution with employee benefits that neither the IRS nor any other district attorney would ever think of. This is not justice, this is politics.”

Dylan recently recalled the “intense” and “stressful” experience of being up on her allegations nine times over a three month period as a child and admitted that she felt she had “lied” after herself had to defend repeatedly.
