Twisting the knife

Ignore when your peer takes advantage of your dire situation. Don’t question what she is doing there or argue with her. Focus on your defense against the charges. Don't apologize for it is a sign of weakness. Use bridging technique to bring attention away from your misconduct. Hit back on the malevolent colleague later.
