Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair and the Democratic nominee for attorney general of Minnesota, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), couldn’t say that other women wouldn’t come forward and accuse him of domestic assault during a debate on Friday.

Two women have come forward to accuse Ellison of domestic assault during their relationships with the congressman. Ellison has denied these charges.

Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, has accused him of emotionally and physically abusing her during their relationship and has released a 2017 doctor’s report naming Ellison as the alleged abuser.

The moderator of debate asked Ellison if he could say with certainty that no one else would come forward and accuse him of similar abuse.

“Look, in this political environment, I don’t know what somebody might cook up,” Ellison said. “But I could tell you that there is absolutely nobody that I am aware of who has any sort of—who is threatening or suggesting or who has ever made a prior accusation about me.”
