Attorney-General Christian Porter is the alleged “Cabinet Minister Rapist” accused of raping 16-yr-old Katharine Thornton in 1988 in Sydney. It is a national security crisis that has left the Prime Minister and federal government open to blackmail by foreign powers and immediate action needs to be taken. Any foreign country, companies or opposition politicians etc could easily blackmail Scott Morrison and/or Christian Porter by threatening to make public the allegations against Christian Porter.
I emailed Christian Porter questions today as per below, but he has refused to respond at this point.
The Australian media and other politicians have totally missed the national security crisis and focused on the rape allegations which have been dismissed by Scott Morrison as being a police matter and out of his hands. That is a lie by Morrison as the police cannot do anything given Katharine Thornton is now deceased and Morrison knows it.
Scott Morrison has said that he has been advised by AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw that he does not need to take any further action. Once again that is a lie because we know that when the Member for Manila Queensland Nationals MP George Christensen was visiting bars, for several months a year, in the Philippines the AFP investigated to see if George Christensen had been compromised as a potential blackmail target by foreign countries.
The allegations of rape against Christian Porter are a lot bigger security risk than the allegations against George Christianson yet the AFP Commissioner has not advised the Prime Minister of the security risk? That’s not believable but given the government has only a one-seat majority in parliament they can’t afford to lose even one politician, so Morrison doesn’t care about the national security threat. But all opposition politicians should and must take action even if that means naming Christian Porter in parliament with the parliamentary privilege protection that gives them against defamation action. The reality is Christian Porter won’t sue anyone as it would put a spotlight on the matter and he would lose because the matter is political communication which is protected as per the 1997 High Court judgment Lange v ABC.
Scott Morrison and the government are trying to cover-up the rape allegations against Christian Porter and the media won’t name him or Katharine Thornton, but the media’s reporting has left many clues and social media users have been investigating with some of the evidence below. In any government cover-up, it is important to get as many details as possible publically known which puts pressure on the authorities to take action and stop the cover-up.
Christian Porter’s Wikipedia page said he was in Sydney in 1988 as captain of the Australian team for a World debating competition but the reference to it kept being deleted on the weekend. I managed to take a screenshot when it was up and Tweeted the below. (Click here to see on Twitter)
But the reference has again been deleted on his Wikipedia page. (Click here to see)
The World debating competition in 1988 was held at the University of Sydney and the nearest police station is Redfern. The media have reported that the police complaint about the alleged rape was made at Redfern police station.
The 1986 National Schools Debating Championships were held in Adelaide and Christian Porter was at school in 1986 and in his schools debating team so he would have been in Adelaide. And Katharine Thornton was in the Adelaide school’s debating team in 1986. (Click here to see on the SADA website)
Katharine Thornton also went to Perth in 1987 for the National Schools debating competition which is where Christian Porter is from so they might have met again then.
It has been widely reported that the person alleging she was raped in 1988 by Christian Porter died of suspected suicide in 2020. The ABC quoted the police as saying:
The NSW Police statement said: “On Wednesday 24 June 2020, the body of a 49-year-old woman was located at a home at Adelaide by South Australia Police (SA Pol).” (Click here to read more)
Katharine Thornton passed away on the 24th June 2020 in Adelaide. She was born on the 23rd February 1971 which meant she was 49 years old. It is the same person that the NSW police are talking out. It is sad that I have had to do investigative work to find that out. The Australian public has a right to know and it should have already been reported.
Below is the email I sent Christian Porter today which I also sent to Senator Penny Wong, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young and Senator Simon Birmingham.

Subject: Rape allegations against Christian Porter
Dear Attorney-General Christian Porter
I will be publishing an article naming you as the Federal Cabinet Minister accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in 1988 in Sydney and I have a few questions.
- Can you confirm that you are the federal cabinet minister accused of raping a 16-year-old girl that has been in the media in the last few days?
- Do you know who Katharine Thornton is?
- Did you ever meet Katharine Thornton?
- Did you ever have a sexual relationship with Katharine Thornton?
- Can you advise that you or your staff edited your Wikipedia page over the last few days to delete the reference to the debating competition that you attended in 1988 in Sydney?
Would you like to add any further comment which I can publish? Please respond by 7pm tonight (1/3/21) so I can publish.
Senator Wong and Senator Hansen-Young were both emailed the allegations against Christian Porter last week and Senator Birmingham knew Katharine Thornton personally as the below Tweet from 2010 shows. Katharine Thornton published a book titled “The Messages of its Walls and Fields” and Senator Birmingham Tweeted the below. (Click here to see it on Twitter)
Some people might think I should not have named Katharine Thornton. There are many reasons why I should. For starters, the government are trying to cover these allegations up and like I said previously the only way to stop a cover-up is to make as many details as possible public which makes it hard for the cover-up to continue. Also, I read today:
“What she wanted fundamentally was accountability, in the sense of the perpetrator being held accountable,” she says.
“And I think the way we can try to provide that is to ensure that a proper, thorough a well-resourced coronial inquiry occurs.
“And also through, ideally, providing a platform for her through print, and television, which was what she wanted, for her story to be told in all of its dimensions. And for that, to involve her name and who the perpetrator was. (Click here to read more)
To me, it sounds like she was happy to fight her battle publicly the same way that Brittany Higgins has, so I have no issues in naming Katharine Thornton. And what if Christian Porter is a rapist and it was to happen again? Would journalists who had an opportunity to out him have some responsibility?
I gave Mr Porter the opportunity to respond above but he has chosen not too, and he could have outed himself and fronted the media, but he has chosen not too.
The Canberra media have focused on the rape allegation and what will the government do about it. They should not. The media need to put the rape allegation aside for a while and focus on the national security crisis, with Christian Porter not stepping aside or being named publicly, and that will force action by the government and then maybe there will be some chance of having an investigation into the rape allegation or at least get a commitment from the opposition for the Senate to have an investigation.
