Robin Roberts Interviews DSK Accuser Nafissatou Diallo: ‘God is my witness I’m telling the truth’

The hotel maid who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of trying to sexually assault her, and whose story is now being called into question, is breaking her silence and talking with ABC’s Robin Roberts.

“I want justice. I want him to go to jail,” Nafissatou Diallo tells Roberts in an interview airing tomorrow on “Good Morning America,” “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline.”

Diallo’s credibility has been called into question, so much so that the Manhattan District Attorney is considering whether to drop the charges.

ABC says there were no restrictions on the interview and when asked whether a licensing fees was paid to secure it, an ABC News spokesperson tells TVNewser, “Absolutely not.”

Roberts asked Diallo about prosecutors reassessing the ” strength of the case.” Diallo acknowledges “mistakes” but says a crime was committed against her.

“God is my witness I’m telling the truth. From my heart. God Knows that. And he knows that,” she said.
