Woman suing Trump for rape dropped lawsuit and will refile with ‘new witness’

Published

on

“Katie Johnson” is the pseudonym under which the plaintiff of a lawsuit against Republican presidential candidate has filed her lawsuit alleging Trump raped a 13-year-old girl. That lawsuit has now been dropped and refiled in New York City under “Jane Doe” and indicates there is a new witness.

The suit alleges that Trump and billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein lured the 13-year-old and several other young women to various parties they hosted during the 1990s. There was allegedly a promise of modeling contracts and money, but neither manifested.

Jezebel, who has led an intense investigated of the accusations, notes that the initial lawsuit was filed in California but was dismissed. The attorney in the case has been identified as Thomas Meagher but another man, identified as “Al Taylor” has also been helping Johnson with the case. He’s a former reality TV producer that The Guardian indicated might actually be former Jerry Springer producer Norm Lubow.  Guests often accused Lubow of “staging fights” and “encouraging them to fabricate” their stories

Taylor maintains that he is not Lubow, isn’t involved and allegedly spent the summer harassing a Jezebel reporter speaking in a fake British accent and telling her to “suck my d*ck” at one point. He also accused her of being involved with a Gawker reporter, which she was not.

According to Johnson’s attorney, “The plaintiff and her counsel in Jane Doe v. Donald J. Trump and Jeffrey E. Epstein (SDNY 1:16-CV-04642) filed today a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal pursuant to F.R.C.P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, without prejudice to refiling the complaint,” he wrote in a statement. “An additional witness has been identified and her declaration will accompany the new complaint.”

Pageant producer Jill Hart has also accused Trump of an appropriate touching.  Three women in total have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault.

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
