The woman suing Donald Trump for alleged child rape will speak publicly on Wednesday afternoon, her lawyer announced. The woman accuses Trump of raping her at a 1994 sex party when she was 13 years old. The party was allegedly at the home of Jeffrey Epstein, a sex offender who has pleaded guilty to soliciting sex from underage girls. The woman accuses Trump of raping her and violently striking her when she resisted. However, the woman has not previously come forward publicly, and previous communications with her legal team have been riddled with inconsistencies.
The woman will be making a public appearance with a new lawyer, Lisa Bloom, her law firm announced in a statement. (Bloom is the daughter of Gloria Allred, the high-powered feminist lawyer representing several of Trump’s sexual-harassment accusers.) They will make their appearance at 3 p.m. PT at the firm’s Los Angeles office. “More than four months ago a woman using the pseudonym ‘Jane Doe’ sued Donald Trump for a series of sexual assaults that she alleges occurred at parties in New York in 1994,” the firm wrote on Wednesday. “Jane Doe was just thirteen years old at the time. Her operative amended federal court complaint is available here. The mainstream media has failed to cover the story… Jane Doe will break her silence today and speak out about her allegations.”
Here is the complaint against Trump.
