US Rep. and DNC Vice Chair Keith Ellison (D-MN) sat down for an interview with local television station WCCO-TV where he discussed the domestic abuse allegation that was leveled against him by his former Democrat activist girlfriend, Karen Monahan. Prior to the interview, the TV hosts told their viewers Ellison would be speaking about the #MeToo claims against him. #MeToo refers to sexual abuse or sexual misconduct against a woman by a male in power, so why would the hosts use this watered down social media hashtag to refer to the serious allegations against the Democrat candidate for Attorney General In Minnesota?
The outspoken, Muslim US Congressman, Keith Ellison, who frequently trashes President Trump, appears to be very measured and can be seen looking to the side while responding to the interviewer about physical and verbal abuse allegations.
When asked directly if there was video that shows him dragging her off a bed and screaming obsenities at her, Ellison paused, and then responded, “There couldn’t be. There couldn’t be such a thing as that”. That’s not exactly a direct answer to the question.
Ellison told the interviewer that if he had the chance to talk to her he would say, “Look, we loved each other. We don’t have to destroy each other.” We’re pretty sure Monahan is not be destroyed by DNC Vice Chair, Keith Ellison.
Here’s how Ellison, who just won the Democrat primary election yesterday for Attorney General in Minnesota, responded.
Is he lying? Are the (almost) tears at the end real, or are they crocodile tears intended to invoke sympathy from the viewers?
You be the judge:
When Hillary paraded her accused rapist and serial sexual assaulter husband around as a prop during her 2016 presidential bid, the media refused to acknowledge the serious accusations about former President Bill Clinton’s sexual predator past, or Hillary’s part in either shaming his victims, or looking the other way.
For the past 5 months, members of the Democrat Party have used an allegation by porn star Stormy Daniels from over a decade ago, of an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump, as a way to assassinate his character. When the mainstream media wasn’t covering the phony Trump-Russian election collusion story, Stormy Daniels was at the epicenter of their endless anti-Trump news coverage. But when the son of a Democrat activist came forward with allegations that he and his brother found a video showing DNC Vice Chair and Democrat Representative Keith Ellison, dragging their mother off the bed, while screaming and calling her a: “f*cking bitch” and telling her to get the f*ck out of his house” the DNC and the mainstream media suddenly lost their nerve to speak out about a horrific domestic violence claim.
Here is the claim that was made by Sierra Club

My name is Austin Monahan and I am writing this letter on behalf of me and my brother.
My brother and I watched our mom come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship with Keith Ellison. For several months we knew something wasn’t right and couldn’t figure it out. When we asked our mom if everything was ok, she told us she was dealing with some stress and would be ok.
In the middle of 2017, I was using my moms computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a “fucking bitch” and telling her to get the fuck out of his house. The messages I found, were mixed with him consistently telling my mom he wanted her back, he missed her, he knew he fucked up and we wished he could do things different, he would victim shaming, bully her, and threaten her if she went public. I text him and told him I know what you did to my mama and a few other things.
I met up with my mom that night and asked her what happened. She said nothing happened until I told her I saw a video and hell of a lot of messages saying something different. She finally talked. My brother and I were so angry and hurt for our mom. We were ready to go public but our mom begged us not to and she along with others convinced us it wasn’t in our moms best interest.
I saw message after message through out all that time, where my mom was telling him she wasn’t going back to him but still saw his humanity and offered restorative justice. I honestly don’t see how she would offer him that, but thats her choice.
Sitting all this time, watching what our mom went through and not being able to say or do anything was hard as hell. None of you know the hell our family has gone through. I don’t think half of you would even care. We watched her so called political friends stand by say or do nothing. People had an idea what happened and never reached out to my mom. The same people who are posting about social justice are ready to smear my mom, protect a person who abused her and broke the law. You think we give a shit about a politics when we saw what our mom went through? She may not matter to none of you, but she is our mom, our kids grandmother and she is actually someone. There is a lot more he has done to my mom and others that we saw in the text but our mom can decide if and when she wants to tell the world that part.
Whether we saw the video or read all those messages, we still would have believed her if she had told us. #Ibelieveher
My mom has always tried to protect me and my brother. She doesn’t have to protect us anymore and we aren’t letting her stand alone. When we found out our mom was planning on sharing her story, that is all we needed to hear for us to share ours and stand with our mom. You want to smear someone, try to lie about a person who didn’t do shit to deserve the ongoing emotional, physical abuse, smear me and my brother.
I use to believe the Democrats were the ones who would stand by a person who went through this kind of abuse, now I know both Democrats and Republicans could care less when it comes to violence toward women and girls.
I have learned a lot about how patriarchy has shaped me as a 25 year old through all this. I just became a father and I am working on how patriarchy influenced thoughts ad decisions I have made as a young man so I can teach my son better. I am starting today by standing with my mom, my sons grandma. It is not just on women and girls to speak out, it is on men to do some of the emotional work. I’m not here to prove shit to anyone, I’m just stating facts. You can take it or leave it.
Mom, I am sure you are getting contacted about this post. Just know we love you and we are standing by you.
