Dirty Politics? New Zealand doesn’t know the meaning of it.
The woman suing Donald Trump for alleged child rape announced that she would speak publicly on Wednesday afternoon. But when the press conference was scheduled to begin, the woman’s lawyer called it off, citing threats to her client.
“We’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came. I have nothing further,” Lisa Bloom, the woman’s lawyer announced. “Jane Doe has received numerous threats today … She has decided she is too afraid to show her face.”
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.
Good grief. Child rape. That’s getting close to the worst you can possibly accuse someone of. It must be noted that the victim isn’t named, AND the presser is called off. So only the headline and accusation remains. Dirty, dirty, dirty.
However, the woman has not previously come forward publicly, and previous communications with her legal team have been riddled with inconsistencies.
Bloom, the woman’s new lawyer, announced the press conference on Wednesday, several hours ahead of the scheduled event. (Bloom is the daughter of Gloria Allred, the high-powered feminist lawyer representing several of Trump’s sexual-harassment accusers.)
Their appearance was planned for 3 p.m. PT at her 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.”
Makes a Saudi Sheep Scam look like tiddlywinks.
If this had any legs, it would have played before “grab her by the pussy”. There is no way this only “just” came to the attention of the Clinton campaign.
With days to go to the election, expect more of these desperate moves to derail Trump.
Ironically, the more they try to discredit him, the more support he gets. Now where have we seen that before…? Political strategists continue to misread voters. In a ‘political market’ with billions of dollars at stake, that’s actually quite remarkable.
