UPDATE: Woman Who Sued Trump for Child Rape Press Conference Rescheduled


UPDATE 6:05 pm: The press conference has been canceled, and will apparently be rescheduled: 

From earlier:

The woman who sued Donald Trump for raping her when she was 13 years old, is expected to break her silence on Wednesday afternoon during a press conference. You can watch a live stream above once it begins, we will have it embedded. The woman, who has used the pseudonym of “Jane Doe,” is appearing for the first time with her new attorney, Lisa Bloom, to discuss the allegations.

Last month, “Jane Doe” filed a lawsuit claiming that Trump raped her when she was 13 years old in the 1990s. This is the third attempt the plaintiff has made in filing this particular lawsuit. In October, she filed an amended complaint, with a new “witness” named “Joan Doe.” The plaintiff and witnesses in the case are using pseudonyms, they say, to protect their identities.

The complaint alleges that billionaire convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had a woman pick up Doe and other teenage girls for his famous parties. Another witness, going by the name “Tiffany,” who also provided an affidavit in the lawsuit, said she witnessed Trump and Epstein rape Doe several times. Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations, and his attorney, Alan Garten, has called the allegations “categorically untrue.” Read more about the case here.
