(Newser) – In a one-two punch, the woman accusing Dominique Strauss-Kahn of attempted rape blasts him again—this time in a broadcast interview—just as her account of the attack hits newsstands in Newsweek magazine. "I want justice. I want him to go to jail," Nafissatou Diallo says in an interview with ABC News. "I want him to know that there is some places you cannot use your money, you cannot use your power when you do something like this."

Diallo's interviews represent a powerful strategy to keep the case alive after sources indicated the Manhattan district attorney would drop the case because of reported inconsistencies in her account about what happened after the attack, and lies in her plea for asylum in the US. Diallo admits to making some "mistakes," but insists the case against Strauss-Kahn should go forward. "God is my witness I'm telling the truth, from my heart," she says. "God knows that, and he knows that." Her interview is being shown today on Good Morning America and World News With Diane Sawyer, and tomorrow on Nightline.
