The Roving Reporter :Whoopi Goldberg changes stance on Bill Cosby: All information 'points to guilt'
Goldberg changed her opinion on Cosby in the course of her conversation with Abrams, who explained that there is a statute of limitations on rape, therefore Cosby's alleged victims can't take him to court since it has been too long since the alleged assault occurred.
"I always thought that rape cases were open-ended," said Goldberg, adding that it is a shock to her to hear otherwise. "You're saying that all that is left to these women is the court of public opinion."
After Abrams confirmed this, Goldberg said, "What we have learned is there's no recourse for these women except what they're doing."
She then went on to change her stance on Cosby. "If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I got to say all of the information that's out there kind of points to guilt."
"I always thought they would have the opportunity to take him to court," she said, to explain the reason she was so adamant about not proclaiming him guilty in the past.
"You've got a serial rapist, he's been on the streets for 30 years," said Goldberg. "I have to say I thought that, 'Yeah, here's all the information, take his ass to jail. I find out from you that that's not possible. So I can't say anymore 'innocent until proven guilty,' I can't say that anymore, because there's no way to prove it."
