State’s Witness Reveals NY AG Pro-life Witch Hunt

Feb 27, 2018

A state’s witness called to testify against Liberty Counsel client Scott Fitchett, Jr., revealed the frivolous pro-life witch hunt of the New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The witness, a security guard named Troyd Asmus, worked outside the Choices Women’s Medical Center abortion facility for more than three years. He testified that there is no one more familiar than himself with the activities of Fitchett, and that he never saw Fitchett do any of the things AG Schneiderman alleges.

Asmus testified unequivocally that Fitchett never blocked, followed, harassed, or intimidated anyone outside of Choices, effectively refuting Schneiderman’s entire frivolous case against Fitchett. And in a bombshell revelation, Asmus announced that he told Assistant AG Sandra Pullman—before the lawsuit was filed—that Fitchett did none of these things the state alleges in the complaint.

Fitchett is one of the 13 defendants under legal assault by AG Schneiderman. The Attorney General is improperly using his position to attack the free speech and constitutional rights of citizens with whom he disagrees on abortion.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s own witness has destroyed his case and exposed the complete frivolity of this lawsuit against Liberty Counsel’s client. The attorney general knew even before he filed this lawsuit that he was perpetuating lies and manipulating the legal system to punish the innocent. This lawsuit is a frivolous abuse of power.
