The anonymous accuser in the Donald Trump child rape case was forced back into silence today as a result of countless death threats from his supporters. But, the reasoning for her initial silence on the alleged rape is truly disturbing.
According to the woman, who is going by the pseudonym “Jane Doe,” she was invited to a series of parties hosted by the now infamous Jeffrey Epstein with promises of money and a modeling career.
It was during one of these parties that Jane Doe alleges Trump raped her. The court documents provide a shocking narrative.
"Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me," Jane Doe recounted. "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."
Jane Doe's attorney states that the statute of limitations should be waived in her case because because Trump made threats against her safety.
"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."
There seems to be little concern or even awareness about Jane Doe's case among voters, even though Trump has bragged about sexual assault and many women have come forward alleging they have been victims of Trump's lechery and violence.
Trump is set in court to address this case on Dec. 16, where he will face a judge and jury over allegedly raping Jane Doe, who was a child at the time.
A potential threat to Trump's defense may be his own words about Epstein, who was arrested for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and has been investigated for hosting sex parties where underage girls were molested.
Before Epstein went to prison, Trump said of him, "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."
Does that sound like a man who condemns Epstein's behavior? How does the importance of that statement change now that Trump faces a lawsuit for allegedly raping a child at one of Epstein's parties?
Whatever happens with this case, Trump's own comments about women, little girls, and sexual assault should prevent any person who values women's safety and basic human rights from voting for him on Nov. 8th.
