This isn't the first time Trump's been accused of abuse.
There is Jill Harth, who filed a lawsuit in 1997 claiming Trump groped her, propositioned her, and forcibly took her into her daughter's bedroom in an attempt to sleep with her. Or Trump’s own wife, Ivana, who stated in a 1993 deposition that he had raped her.
Ivana later issued a statement, provided by Trump's lawyers, saying she didn't mean the term in a "criminal sense." But the encounter, laid out in the 1993 book "Lost Tycoon," is undeniably violent and forceful.
"[Trump] rips off her clothes and unzips his pants," author Harry Hunt writes. "Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in 16 months. Ivana is terrified. This is not lovemaking. This is not romantic sex. This is a violent assault."Trump dismissed the account as false, and said it was written by "an unattractive guy who is a vindictive and jealous person."
While Doe's case is still developing, what we know now is this: Trump is accused of raping a 13-year old girl, at parties hosted by a friend and registered sex offender. He has been accused of sexual assault before — including by this same plaintiff — but it seems this alleged victim will let nothing stop her pursuit of justice.
