Donald Trump Rape Case: Lawsuit a ‘Completely Manufactured Claim’
As reported by the New York Daily News the woman, identified in the lawsuit as Tiffany Doe, claimed that Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein sexually assaulted her when she was 13 years old in parties hosted by the latter in 1994.
The presidential nominee and business mogul has denied the allegations, and his attorney Alan Garten said the lawsuit was “a completely manufactured claim” that was “designed to discredit my client and interfere with the election.”
“These are allegations that are completely unfounded but are alleged to have occurred more than 20 years ago by someone who refuses to give their name,” Garten said. “It is wholly without merit. It is a completely manufactured claim. The entire thing is a hoax designed to discredit my client and interfere with the election.
