One Of New York City’s most liberal, anti-Trump daily papers, the New York Daily News, reports that an “unnamed woman” has filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump for allegedly raping her in 1994, when she was only 13 years old.
Manhattan Federal Judge Ronnie Abrams has scheduled a hearing for Dec. 16.
The woman has alleged that the assault took place at a party thrown by NYC billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
In the 1990’s, Epstein, a well-known financier, threw countless opulent parties at his U.S. Virgin Islands home, entertaining guests like Bill Clinton, Larry Summers, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, and Naomi Campbell.
Epstein denies that anything illegal ever took place at any of his parties, although in 2008, he pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor.
Trump’s female accuser originally filed her lawsuit in California last May, but a judge threw out the case. Her new lawyer, Thomas Meagher, said the previous case was dismissed because the woman had not hired a attorney, and she naively cited laws that did not apply to the case.
Trump attorney, Alan Garten, told the Daily News that the lawsuit is without merit and purely politically motivated.
“These are allegations that are completely unfounded but are alleged to have occurred more than 20 years ago by someone who refuses to give their name,” Garten said. He added “It is wholly without merit. It is a completely manufactured claim. The entire thing is a hoax designed to discredit my client and to interfere with the election.”
The New York Daily News has always despised Donald Trump. Today’s front cover shows an ominous photo of FBI Director James Comey, who recently re-opened the Clinton email investigation. Above his photo is the caption “ROGUE ONE: Comey Ignored Dept Of Justice”.
The good news for Trump is that very few people read the Daily News any more.
