A lawsuit involving a California womanâ€™s charge that Donald Trump raped her when she was an underage teen have resurfaced, this time in a Manhattan Federal Court with Trump,Â denouncing the allegationsÂ as â€œcategorically untrue and politically motivatedâ€.
The lawsuit was first dismissed by a Los Angeles court, but now the case has been revisited with some previous charges dropped and a new lawyer now in charge of the case.
Gone from the new lawsuit is an allegation that Trump threw money at the plaintiff for an abortion when she expressed fear about getting pregnant after being raped. Gone, too, is the allegation that Trump called co-defendant and accused pedophile and sex party host Jeffrey Epstein a â€œJew bastard,â€ and her request for $100 million in damages.
But the complaintâ€™s core allegations remain unchanged, that Trump and Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at a series of Manhattan sex parties Epstein hosted in 1994.
â€œImmediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trumpâ€™s sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I would be physically harmed if not killed,â€ the plaintiff said in an affidavit.
Trumpâ€™s organization through itâ€™s vice president Alan Garten, has dismissed the lawsuit and claims saying the allegations were â€œcategorically untrue, completely fabricated and politically motivated.
The lawsuit says the woman remains traumatized by the abuse. She says that since Trump launched his campaign and received mass media coverage, she has been â€œsubjected to daily painful reminders of the horrific acts.â€
