In the final six days before the presidential election, a woman who alleges Donald Trump raped her when she was 13-years-old canceled a news conference Wednesday where she was supposed to speak publicly for the first time about her alleged encounter with the Republican nominee.
The accuser, who has requested to remain anonymous and identified as Jane Doe, claims in a lawsuit that Trump and prominent New York financier Jeffrey Epstein raped and sexually abused her at a series of parties in 1994.
Her attorney Lisa Bloom issued a press release Wednesday afternoon announcing the woman would give up the “Jane Doe” pseudonym used in her recent suits at the press conference.
Hours later, Bloom explained why the accuser will be a no-show.

“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” Bloom told reporters. “She is living in fear. She has decided that she is too afraid to show her face. She’s been here all day ready to do it. But unfortunately she is in terrible fear.”
“We’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came. I have nothing further.” @LisaBloom press conference is off.

Doe first filed filed a civil lawsuit in California in April accusing Trump of rape.
Daily Beast reporter Brandy Zadrozny says Doe’s lawyers and handlers have “promised interviews on several occasions—meetings and phone calls which have been ultimately withdrawn, usually at the last minute.”
The first hearing in the accuser’s lawsuit is scheduled for Dec. 16 in Manhattan federal court.
Bloom, daughter of noted women’s rights lawyer Gloria Allred, is representing several of the other women who have accused Trump of sexually assaulting them since he launched his campaign in June of 2015. Bloom has also launched a GoFundMe page to raise money to support Trump’s sexual assault accusers.
Trump emphatically denies the allegations.
“The allegations are not only categorically false, but disgusting at the highest level and clearly framed to solicit media attention or, perhaps, are simply politically motivated,” Trump told RadarOnline after Doe filed her original lawsuit. “There is absolutely no merit to these allegations. Period.”
The billionaire Republican called his accusers “liars,” and vehemently promised to sue every single woman accusing him after the election is over. He says Democrats are orchestrating the allegations to sabotage his presidential bid as the liberal media is eager to capitalize on the claims.
“All of these liars will be sued once the election is over,” Trump said, then added: “I look so forward to doing that.”
