Woman Who Claimed Trump Raped Her At 13 Withdrew Lawsuit As Threats Mounted
A woman who filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump in 2016 claiming that he raped her years prior when she was 13 years old ultimately dropped the lawsuit as threats against her mounted, according to multiple reports.
- The woman initially filed her lawsuit in California in April 2016, Snopes verified.
- A copy of the lawsuit shared via Scribd outlined allegations against both Trump and now-deceased Jeffrey Epstein.
- Snopes reported that the lawsuit
included the accusation that Trump and Epstein had (over 20 years earlier) “sexually and physically” abused the then 13-year-old plaintiff and forced her “to engage in various perverted and depraved sex acts” — including being “forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with the use of her hand upon Defendant Trump’s erect penis until he reached sexual orgasm,” and being “forced to engage in an unnatural lesbian sex act with her fellow minor and sex slave, Maria Doe, age 12, for the sexual enjoyment of Defendant Trump” — after luring her to a “series of underage sex parties” by promising her “money and a modeling career”
- The lawsuit reportedly was dismissed over technical filing errors and later refiled in New York, Snopes wrote.
- The Guardian reported in November 2016, just ahead of the presidential election, that the woman had abruptly abandoned a planned press conference with attorney Lisa Bloom, who by that time had taken on her case, citing an onslaught of death threats.
“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented. She has decided she is too afraid to show her face. She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately she is in terrible fear. We’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came. I have nothing further.”
