It seemed clear to me the ref did not really believe it likely to be a RC because he doubted very much the reported stamp actually happened. He was calling the (perceived biased) AR out on the allegation giving the AR enough rope to hang himself and being very clear what the ramifications of the AR's call were.
That's why you tell the AR that "on the basis of HIS report you are going to issue a Red Card. You make it clear that you saw nothing and the report makes it clear it was a red card offence.
You also then make a report to the society / union if oyu feel he failed in his duties. The Referee coach / assessor should also be made aware of your feelings.
