The number of Bill Cosby defenders is dwindling.
On Tuesday's episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg - who has consistently defended Cosby against the allegations of sexual assault from more than 50 women - admitted that the evidence against the comedian is fairly damning.
Goldberg has famously insisted that Cosby should be perceived as "innocent until proven guilty." However, upon learning that the statute of limitations on rape cases will likely prevent Cosby from ever being officially charged with a crime, Goldberg adopted a different stance.
"If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I've got to say, all of the information that's out there kind of points to guilt," Goldberg said during a conversation with ABC News' chief legal analyst Dan Abrams. "These women have no legal recourse. All they have is us. ... I can't say anymore 'innocent until proven guilty' because there's no way to prove it."
Other Cosby apologists, including Jill Scott, have also reversed their positions in the wake of an unsealed deposition last week in which Cosby admitted in 2005 to giving women Quaaludes in order to have sex with them. Cosby's wife, Camille, however, maintains that her husband's accusers "consented" to taking drugs and having sex.
Abrams explained that many activists are trying to reform rape laws to eliminate the statute of limitations.
