The woman who accused U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., of domestic abuse released on Wednesday what appeared to be a medical document from 2017 detailing the abuse allegedly caused by the congressman.
Karen Monahan, an ex-girlfriend of Ellison, published the document on social media just days after saying the Democratic Party “smeared” her and threatened to isolate her over her allegations against the deputy of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
A doctor wrote in the medical document that Monahan “states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated.

“She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly,” the document added.
The woman claims the document’s date – Nov. 28, 2017 – proves she discussed the abuse story long before she publicly voiced her accusations against the Democrat.
“She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly.”
She came forward with her story last month, alleging that Ellison sent her threatening text messages and once screamed obscenities at her as he dragged her off a bed by her feet.
Monahan previously said that she has a video of Ellison attacking her, but declined the requests to release the footage, saying it’s too traumatic. Ellison has denied all the accusations, saying he “never behaved this way.”
The allegations didn’t lead to any immediate action against the congressman, except for the announcement that the DNC would review the accusations. He went on to win the Democratic primary election for Minnesota attorney general.
