Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s alleged victim is speaking out in his emerging groping scandal. (TheBlaze)

 The former news reporter who accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of “groping” her nearly two decades ago prior to his career in politics has broken her silence.

The alleged incident happened in 2000 when Trudeau was 28. He was in British Columbia attending a charity event in memory of his brother, Michel, who died in an avalanche in 1998. After the event, a local newspaper published an unsigned editorial accusing Trudeau of “groping” and “inappropriately handling” one of its reporters on assignment, according to the Independent.

The reporter felt “blatantly disrespected” by Trudeau, who allegedly apologized the next day. According to the same newspaper that published the accusations, Trudeau offered an apology, but said: “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper I never would have been so forward.”

Rose Knight, the former journalist at the center of the incident, told a Canadian newspaper that she stands by her account of what happened to her — but now considers the matter closed, and doesn’t wish to relive the pain of her experience, according to CBC News.

Trudeau claims he apologized immediately following the incident because he understood the reporter perceived it differently. Yeah, right.
