Last November, as more and more women came forward with allegations that no-longer-beloved comedian Bill Cosby had drugged and raped them, Cosby's lawyer John P. Schmitt made the following statement: "Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true."

Today, the Associated Press has obtained a 2005 deposition that discredits this statement, in which Cosby admits not only that he obtained Quaaludes, but that he did so with the intent of giving them to women, presumably to rape them. What's more, he admitted that he succeeded in giving a woman drugs in at least one case.

The deposition was in relation to a suit settled in 2006, and filed in part by former-Temple University basketball player Andrea Constand—the first of Cosby's alleged victims to come forward. Cosby testified that he gave Constand "three half-pills of Benadryl," but Constand's lawyer Dolores Troiani challenged this. From the AP's report on the deposition:

"When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" lawyer Dolores M. Troiani asked [Cosby].

"Yes," Cosby answered on Sept. 29, 2005.

"Did you ever give any of these young women the quaaludes without their knowledge?"

Cosby's lawyer again objected, leading Troiani to petition the federal judge to force Cosby to cooperate.

Cosby later said he gave Constand three half-pills of Benadryl, although Troiani in the documents voices doubt that was the drug involved. The two other women who testified on Constand's behalf said they had knowingly been given quaaludes.

The AP went to court to obtain the deposition, which Cosby's lawyers attempted to suppress on the grounds that "it would embarrass their client." No kidding.
