The lawsuit accusing Republican nominee Donald Trump of raping a thirteen-year-old girl has just been refiled in a New York court with a new witness. The allegations against Trump apparently occurred in the 1990s, when Trump was attending parties thrown by convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein, who was notorious for arranging sex parties with underage girls for America’s wealthy elites.
Two witnesses are now joined by a third, “Joan Doe,” who said in court documents that:
“In the 1994-95 school year, I was told by the plaintiff in Jane Doe v. Trump and Epstein (1:16-cv-04642, SDNY) that the plaintiff was subject to sexual contact by the Defendants at parties in New York City during the summer of 1994,
Trump’s camp has immediately denied all the accusation and denied all connection to Epstein, even though he told New York magazine in 2002 that “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
Epstein’s brother, Mark, also testified that “Trump flew on Jeffrey’s private jet at least once and records indicate that Trump called Epstein twice in November of 2004.”
When Epstein was asked if he had ever “socialized” with Donald Trump with underage girls, Epstein plead the Fifth.
Q. Have you ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18?
A: Though I’d like to answer that question, at least today I’m going to have to assert my Fifth, Sixth, and 14th Amendment rights, sir.
Epstein eventually recieved a slap on the wrist – 13 months in prison and registration as a sex offender – for decades of abuse: “according to law-enforcement officials and alleged victims, between the years 1998 and 2007—and possibly even earlier—he ran a particularly vile pyramid scheme that involved paying minors around $200 at a time to perform sexual massages nearly every day and then recruit even younger girls to do the same. (“The more you do, the more you are paid,” one said.) During these massages, girls as young as 13 told police they were instructed to get undressed. Epstein would masturbate or penetrate them, they said—with his finger, or a vibrator, or his allegedly egg-shaped penis.”
While none of that is concrete evidence, Trump’s fondness for “younger” women is well-known. He sexualized his infant daughter by wondering if she would grow up to have her mother’s breasts, commented on a twelve-year-old Paris Hilton’s “beauty” before admitting he had watched her sex tape (he’s also known her since her infancy), and constantly praises his daughter Ivanka for her looks.
To put it in words that Trump would understand: many people, tremendous people are saying these allegations could be true.
