"In any claim, evidence matters. Evidence always matters," Tyson wrote. "But what happens when it's just one person's word against another's, and the stories don't agree? That's when people tend to pass judgment on who is more credible than whom. And that's when an impartial investigation can best serve the truth – and would have my full cooperation to do so."
"I'm the accused, so why believe anything I say? Why believe me at all?" he wrote.
Obviously, self-serving statements on their own, such as protestations of innocence have little probative value in trying to find the truth. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what comes out of any investigation. LoveHC
