Washington: US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has ‘ conclusively ‘ denies claims made in a lawsuit that he raped a woman when she was a teenager.
The billionaire businessman has been accused of attacking the 13-year-old girl alleged victim with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 1994.
A woman named as Katie Johnson has filed a $100 million lawsuit in California federal court accusing Donald Trump of raping her three times when she was a teenager. She was enticed to attend a series of underage sex parties by promises of money and a modelling career.
She claims Trump took her virginity, he sexually assaulted her at a home owned by Epstein, who hosted “sex parties”.
But Trumph denied the allegations by saying .“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.
“There is absolutely no merit to these allegations. Period.”
Johnson claims she was threatened with her life if she ever spoke of the abuse she alleges she suffered.
