Press conference called off for woman accusing Trump of horrific child rape due to ‘threats’

Source: Raw Story

EDITORS UPDATE: Attorney Lisa Bloom has called off Wednesday’s news conference citing threats to “Jane Doe.” More information to follow.

We’ve heard a lot about horrific allegations of child rape against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and now it looks like his accuser in this case is finally coming forward.

Attorney Lisa Bloom announced today that the woman in question, who up until now has only been referred to as “Jane Doe,” will break her silence by speaking out at Bloom’s law firm in Woodland Hills, California at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.

The alleged assault took place in 1994, when the victim was only 13 years old.

3. "up until now has only been referred to as "Jane Doe"??

That's not true.

Her real name has been public since she filed her first lawsuit against Trump & Epstein in CA earlier this year, using her real name...

I've probably read every article about this lawsuit, (which the msm has refused to cover)
and some news sites mention her real name, and some don't.

Also, she has a public website with her video testimony, and it was set up using her real name.
http://www.justiceforkatie.com/

(For those who wish to help her out with her expenses, there is a "Donate" button at her website, as well as an address (a bank) where one can send a check to.)


(I wrote this post earlier today)
"The website that Donald Trump doesn't want anyone to see"
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1016169441


I hope some arrangement can be made for another press conference before the election.

Perhaps Lisa Bloom, her new attorney, can figure out a way to hold one without the victim actually being there..

Perhaps Lisa Bloom could hold the press conference, (with lots of security guards there), and Bloom could relay questions to the victim via telephone, and the victim could make her statement & answer questions via cell phone or speaker-phone?


That rat bastard Trump needs to "sweat" about this lawsuit, and I hope Lisa Bloom figures out a way to hold a press conference without "Jane Doe" actually being there...some time Before the election, so the publicity such a press conference would bring can cost Trump as many votes as possible.

5. How do you know that's her real name

 


The California case was filed with a name and an address.

The address is a one bedroom house whose owner died in October 2015, had been foreclosed on, and was listed for sale as a foreclosure property a week before the CA suit was filed.

12. You're welcome.

Whether it's Skype or some other method, I hope Lisa Bloom will figure out a way to hold a press conference within the next 4 days, even if Trump's rape victim is there via Skype or some other method.

Also, I hope that the "threats" that caused Bloom to cancel yesterday's press conference are being investigated by the Woodland Hills police.

6. Nightmare

This whole trump election has been a nightmare. One outrageous thing after another. What has happened to real American spirit ? Not in a million years could I imagine such a deplorable candidate as trump. America has turned into a horrible culture I want no part of. God help us if he wins.

10. If she actually went to a press conference that would be a big difference.

It's like the other statements from women he assaulted. The Miss Iceland barely made the news. But when some of the women did a public statement that made it "mainstream" tv worthy.

11. This story disturbs me even more this morning

Obviously, on the surface, it's an awful, heart wrenching rape story.

Given the Howard Stern/Access Hollywood tapes, 12 women coming forward, his ex-wife's rape accusations, that a judge has set a hearing date of Dec 16th and other misogynist stuff, you'd think folks would allow the possibility that these allegations may be worth hearing while waiting for due process - that he remains kind innocent until proven otherwise (although it is a civil case ..).

Twitter seemed to explode with a high number of attacks on #LisaBloom (her lawyer) (ie suggestions to have her disbarred) and this woman.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/calif-woman-accusing-trump-child-rape-break-silence-article-1.2855631
"Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” said the woman’s attorney, Lisa Bloom.

“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. So we're going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came."


I don't know how many of you have watched some of these woman Trump has molested tell their side of the story but it's often been pretty compelling testimony. Many of them have been deeply hurt by his conduct and can barely speak about it. Few if any are suing him and their motivations seem to be generally based for the greater good.

Somehow, the FBI looking at emails where Clinton has been previously cleared is massively newsworthy even though we haven't a shred of evidence to suggest any further wrongdoing, etc. But a teenager alleging being violently raped and then muzzled by threats warrants no mainstream media coverage.

Is it just me or is that a double standard?
