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.

‘Hard to overstate’ how badly Taylor’s testimony damaged Trump: Ex-federal prosecutor

Published

on

On Wednesday, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote for Politico Magazine that the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor was devastating for President Donald Trump — and that if he keeps trying to deny wrongdoing, it will only get worse and maybe even force Senate Republicans' hand against him.

"It’s hard to overstate how much damage the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor inflicted on President Donald Trump’s defense in the ongoing impeachment inquiry," wrote Mariotti. "On its face, Taylor’s testimony Tuesday established the quid pro quo that Trump has denied for weeks. But more importantly, Taylor’s detailed notes of the 'highly irregular' policy-making that he witnessed over the summer provide a roadmap to future testimony that could be even more harmful. Republicans have already begun to retreat from their 'no quid pro quo' line, but they will have to keep retreating because Taylor has almost single-handedly decimated the few witnesses who have provided some testimony that is favorable to Trump."
