Now that billionaire child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is back in the news, it seems like a good time to take a closer look at allegations that Donald Trump raped a 13-year-old girl at Epstein's Manhattan home in 1994.

Trump is more than overdue for his #MeToo reckoning...
Important caveat: I am an activist and an attorney, not a journalist. I strongly encourage journalists to explore this further.

These claims got little attention because the accuser has remained anonymous. But new details uncovered by @MiamiHerald on Epstein bolster her story.
“Jane Doe” alleges Donald Trump sexually assaulted her on four separate occasions, culminating in a rape when she was just 13 at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion.

Her evidence? Three sworn declarations – from her, a friend she confided in at the time, AND one of Epstein’s recruiters.
This case was filed in New York federal court in 2016. You can read her pleading here: politico.com/f/?id=00000158…

The case was NOT dismissed. Jane withdrew her complaint on November 4, 2016, saying she was “afraid to show her face” due to “numerous threats” against her.
Jane came to New York in June 1994 “in the hope of starting a modeling career.” She soon met "Tiffany," who offered to bring her to parties where she could meet folks in the business - hosted by Epstein.

This is eerily similar to tales of recruiters in @MiamiHerald's reporting.
Jane claims Trump had “sexual contact" with her at four parties she attended that summer. She understood both Trump and Epstein "knew that [she] was 13 years old.”

The fourth time, she says "Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me."
Jane claims a 12-year-old named Maria was forced to be involved in the third encounter. She never saw Maria again after that.

Following the rape, Jane says Trump threatened to hurt her and her family if she ever told anyone. He suggested he could make her “disappear like Maria.”
Jane is not the only witness offered in this filing. A woman using the pseudonym “Joan Doe” attests that she is willing to testify that Jane told her about the sexual encounters with Trump and Epstein “in the 1994-95 school year.”

Here is her sworn declaration:
Jane also filed a sworn declaration from Tiffany, who says Epstein employed her starting in 1991 “to get attractive adolescent women to attend these parties.”

Tiffany corroborates Jane’s story and claims to have “personally witnessed” the four encounters between Jane and Trump.
Tiffany also claims she personally witnessed the “one occasion where Mr. Trump forced [Jane] and a 12-year-old female named Maria [to] perform oral sex” on him. She also claims to have witnessed Trump’s later threats against Jane.

Tiffany says she worked for Epstein until 2000.
Trump admits to a close friendship with Epstein. He told New York magazine in 2002:

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy...it is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” nymag.com/nymetro/news/p…
.@MotherJones' description of Trump's modeling agency is eerily similar to parts of Epstein's scheme as well.

Though there is less reporting on this, Trump seems to have illegally brought girls as young as 14 to the U.S. to work uncompensated. Sounds a lot like trafficking, no?
Flash forward to 2007. Epstein is being prosecuted for “assembling a large, cult-like network of underage girls – with the help of young female recruiters.”

The prosecutor? Future Trump Labor Secretary, Alex Acosta.

Epstein’s attorney? Future Trump mouthpiece, Alan Dershowitz.
According to the @MiamiHerald report this week, Acosta worked with Dershowitz to give Epstein a sweetheart deal - just 13 months in county jail.

Perhaps more egregious, Acosta "granted immunity to 'any potential co-conspirators’" in these crimes. miamiherald.com/news/local/art…
This unusual move not only exempts Trump from criminal prosecution for raping Jane Doe. It also protects Dershowitz.

Virginia Roberts claims Alan had sex with her "six times...the first time was when I was about 16, early on in my servitude to Epstein.’’ miamiherald.com/news/local/art…
Ten years after Acosta coddled Epstein and gave immunity to his co-conspirators, Trump appointed Acosta Secretary of Labor.

If you recall, Acosta replaced Andrew Puzder, who was charged with serious domestic abuse.

Abusive behavior is not the exception here. It is the rule.
I have no way of verifying Jane's claims. But three sworn declarations filed in federal court ARE evidence. Congruence with details in the @MiamiHerald and multiple ties to Trumps' inner circle add credibility.

At the very least, Jane must be heard. We all deserve the truth.
I reviewed the videos released via justiceforkatie.org (the accuser's other pseudonym is Katie Johnson). These only seem to add credibility.

Here she talks about how she was recruited for Epstein. Notice how the details fit with later @MiamiHerald reporting. @jkbjournalist
Here is more on Epstein that matches details in the @MiamiHerald reports: being forced to give him massages, Epstein forcing digital penetration, his irritation at her protests, etc.

Listen to her voice. Listen to her story.
Here she recounts her first encounter with Trump when she was 13. Her description matches his known idiosyncrasies and germophobia:

He required her to touch him with a glove.

"He seemed to take a liking to me because I was so young...he kind of liked things to be his first."
"Donald Trump specifically asked about me because I remind him of his daughter, and she said, 'Well, she's 13 as well.'"

I *know* we avoid seriously discussing this because it is disturbing beyond comprehension. But we all know what Trump has said about Ivanka.

This.
Adds.
Up.
You can watch her full recorded testimony at justiceforkatie.com. It is dated February 11, 2016.

Based on all of the details we now know, her story is very credible. It is past time we confront this as a nation.
