Woman Who Accused Trump of Rape Drops Lawsuit

A woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her when she was thirteen dropped her lawsuit against the Presidential candidate last week.

Alleged attack

The woman alleged that both Mr Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein raped her in 1994. She claimed that Mr Trump tied her to a bed at a party in Mr Epstein’s Manhattan home before attacking her.

The alleged victim filed a lawsuit against the pair earlier in 2016 under the pseudonym Jane Doe and a tentative court date was set for the civil lawsuit against Mr Trump for 16 December 2016.

Voluntary dismissal

Thomas Meagher, one of the claimant’s lawyers, filed a voluntary one page document dismissing the case in district court in Manhattan, New York on Friday (4th November). Another lawyer for the alleged victim, Lisa Bloom, cited “numerous threats” against her client after she abruptly cancelled a planned event at which she was to speak publicly about her claims.

Ms Bloom went on to say:

“She is living in fear. She has decided that she is too afraid to show her face.

“She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately, she’s in terrible fear.”

Both Meagher and Bloom failed to immediately respond when asked by the Guardian to comment on the document filed last week.

A lawyer for the Trump Organisation claimed the allegations were “a complete fabrication” after the lawsuit was filed against him in June. Alan Garten said:

“This is basically a sham lawsuit brought by someone who desires to impact the presidential election.”

Mr Trump has always denied the allegation.
