Aaron and his lawyers also interacted with him on a regular basis. Although you can never be absolutely certain of things, it's certainly possible in general to infer people's mental state through their actions.

In this particular case, if you think Aaron and his lawyers were disingenuously misrepresenting what was happening, or Taren is lying in a deeply emotional state about what he related to her, just say so. Not cloaked in clucking about mind reading.

I don't think she's lying. That would imply she knows Heymann's motives but is misrepresenting them. I don't think she knows his motives. If I were going to ascribe fairly venal motives to someone, I'd want to have something to back my claim up.
