An anonymous woman called “Jane Doe” filed a lawsuit against GOP nominee Donald Trump in June accusing him of raping her in 1994, when she was only 13-years-old, Scribd reports. So far, the media has not publicized the case or given it much attention.
If Bill Cosby’s rape charges taught us anything, it’s that we should never disregard any rape charges, even if we believe them to be false. Who would have thought the man we all knew (and loved) as Dr. Huxtable could be capable of drugging and raping dozens of women?
Journalists turned a blind eye for years when they discovered that Cosby was a rapist. They did not give the story any merit and tried to silence the victims. Now, decades later, we learn that they were telling the truth, and they were reaching out for help — help from the agony they lived with a man that the country respected.
The Huffington Post reports that the reporters that turned a blind eye to Cosby’s victims have publicly apologized to the women. They felt horrible that if only they would have written and given them a space in the magazine/newspaper, not as many women would have been hurt by his actions. It looks like history could repeat itself as some of the same claims are being made again, only this time it is about Presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
Snopes reported that “Jane Doe” filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and his billionaire friend, named Jeffrey Epstein, seeking 100 million in damages. She accused them of raping her in 1994 when she was only 13-years-old. The court documents revealed the woman’s name is Katie Johnson.
In the court documents, Johnson alleged that Trump and Epstein threatened her family with “bodily harm” if she didn’t comply with their sexual demands. Of course, Donald Trump’s campaign has deemed this report to be “absolute nonsense and not even remotely true or a possibility.”
The problem is that “Jane Doe” is a woman that is claiming that she was hurt and damaged by a man that is seeking the highest political office in the country. Her claims need to be researched and proven to be false before the country allows Trump to take office (should he win the 2016 election).
“Jane Doe” claims that she had sexual contact with Trump on four different encounters during the summer of 1994. She alleged that she firmly asked (demanded) that Trump stop, and he refused.
“On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me. During the course of this savage sexual attack, I loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but he did not. Defendant Trump responded to my pleas by violently striking me in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted. Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trump’s sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I would be physically harmed if not killed.”
Her claims are shocking and should be investigated before Donald Trump is allowed to take office. “Jane Doe” claims that she has witnesses that support her story, and implied that there are more victims scared to come forward.
Before you decide that the story is just another ploy to derail Donald Trump’s campaign, consider this — if these teenage girls were raped, it is our duty to seek justice for them. At the very least, they deserve their day in court and to be able to look Trump and Epstein in the eyes and tell their story.
If we’ve learned anything about celebrity rape allegations over the past few years, it is that we should believe the victims until it is proven they are not telling the truth. And, if “Jane Doe”or Katie Johnson is telling the truth, do you really want a to elect Donald Trump if he (allegedly) repeatedly raped a 13 -year-old girl?
