Last Thursday Australian Federal Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw and his boss Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews were caught lying about the progress of the police investigation regarding Brittany Higgins’ complaint about the alleged parliament house rapist Bruce Lehrmann. Then on Friday Justice Jayne Jagot handed down a very dodgy judgment protecting alleged rapist and federal MP Christian Porter.
The cover-up of both alleged rapes have Scott Morrison’s finger prints all over it because the only thing that would be on his mind at the moment is the next election which could be anytime between now and May 2022 at the latest. Morrison knows he needs to keep both alleged rapes off the media headlines others it will do major damage to his election prospects and his worst nightmare would be to have Bruce Lehrmann charged with rape and standing trial just before the next election. That is why there is would pressure on the AFP to not charge Lehrmann at all or at least not before the next election.
Last Thursday it was exposed that:
The ACT director of public prosecutions says the Brittany Higgins investigation is currently back in the hands of the Australian federal police, contradicting both the AFP commissioner, Reece Kershaw, and the home affairs minister, Karen Andrews.
During an appearance at the National Press Club on Wednesday, Kershaw was asked for an update on the Higgins matter.
“I have been on the public record on this,” Kershaw said. “It is a matter with the ACT DPP right now so it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to comment any further.”
Given the investigation process seems to be taking a lengthy period of time, Andrews was also asked for an update during a radio interview in Brisbane on Wednesday. “Well my understanding is that there has been a brief that has been put through to the DPP.
Guardian Australia contacted the ACT DPP to clarify the status of the Higgins investigation on Thursday. A spokeswoman for the ACT director of public prosecutions Shane Drumgold said: “In response to your question, please note that the director forwarded his advice to the AFP on Monday 28 June 2021, and the matter currently rests with the AFP.

It means the AFP have been sitting on advice on whether or not to charge Bruce Lehrmann since the 28th of June which is over a month ago but last week AFP commissioner, Reece Kershaw, and the home affairs minister, Karen Andrews, were telling the media lies that the decision whether to charge Bruce Lehrmann was still with the ACT director of public prosecutions.
I published an article in March 2021 titled “PM Scott Morrison, AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller conspire to cover-up rape” which is being proven truer by the day which started off:
In the last couple of weeks, AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw has sent a letter, which was drafted by Scott Morrison, to federal politicians warning sexual assault victims, such as Brittany Higgins, that they need to go to the police and not the media. And NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller stated that rape allegations by Katharine Thornton against Attorney-General Christian Porter “probably would not have gone to court” even though the police had not even investigated the matter. When looking at the conduct and communication of both AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw and NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller in relation to the 2 alleged rapes it is obvious there has been political interference by Scott Morrison and his office.

As regular readers know Justice Jayne Jagot handed down a judgment last Friday (30/7/21) to conceal evidence regarding Christian Porter’s alleged rape of Katharine Thornton.

Leader of the House is the government minister responsible for the management of government business in the House of Representatives and it is a high profile position that would be great for someone with a damaged reputation trying to rebuild their image. Deputy Leader of the House David Gillespie, who should be the person to fill in for Dutton, has been sidelined to allow Porter the high profile role and many people on social media, especially women, are appalled as you would expect.
Prime Ministers clear the decks before elections of any issues they think might cause a problem during an election but trying to clear the decks of 2 rape allegations is a new low.
