The Battlefield, April 29, 2016 – Did Donald Trump Rape One Of Jeffrey Epstein’s Sex Slaves In 1994?

That’s what’s alleged in a lawsuit filed in federal court in California Thursday.

The suit, which has been seen by Daily Mail Online, has been brought by a woman named as Katie Johnson who claims Trump took her virginity and alleges that the Republican presidential hopeful and financier Epstein treated her as a ‘sex slave’ during an ‘horrific’ four-month period in 1994.

Johnson has been offering her alleged story to a series of news outlets, and photographs of her have been offered for sale for up to $25,000.

The woman in question says she was 13 at the time, and was induced into the infamous Jeffrey Epstein sex slave ring because she wanted to pursue a modeling career. Trump, it’s alleged, was an Epstein pal frequenting Epstein’s orgies.

In her legal complaint, Johnson makes shocking and unproven claims that Trump and Epstein ‘sexually and physically’ abused her and threatened to harm her or her family if she didn’t comply.

And Ms Johnson also claims in the legal complaint that she and a third ‘sex slave’ – also aged 13 – gave Trump and Epstein naked, sexually charged massages in the same room of the Manhattan residence during one of the parties.

‘The Plaintiff, Katie Johnson, was subject to extreme sexual and physical abuse by both defendants, including rape,’ the lawsuit states.

It added: ‘The Plaintiff Katie Johnson, was enticed with promises of money and a modeling career to attend a series of underage sex parties at the Manhattan residence of Defendant, Jeffrey E. Epstein, and attended by Defendant, Donald J. Trump.’

What’s in this complaint sounds like horror tales from a Turkish harem…

‘On the first occasion involving the Defendant, Donald J Trump, the Plaintiff, Katie Johnson, was forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with her hand on his erect penis until he achieved sexual orgasm,’ the lawsuit states.

During a second alleged encounter with Trump Ms Johnson alleges in the lawsuit that she was forced to ‘orally copulate’ the real estate mogul and on a third occasion she was forced to perform ‘an unnatural lesbian sex act’ for Trump with a fellow minor aged just 12, identified in the suit only as Maria Doe.

‘After this act both minors were forced to orally copulate Defendant Trump,’ the suit stated, adding: ‘After zipping up his pants, Defendant Trump pushed both minors to the floor while angrily berating them about the quality of their sexual performance.’

On the fourth and final alleged encounter, Ms Johnson claims in her lawsuit she was tied to a bed by Trump and ‘forcibly raped’ by the billionaire.

The suit alleges that Trump refused to wear a condom during the violent ‘rape’ despite Johnson’s pleas.

‘Defendant Trump slapped the Plaintiff Johnson in the face with his open hand and angrily stated that he would do whatever he wanted and that he was in charge,’ the suit states.

‘After achieving sexual orgasm,’ the lawsuit also claims, ‘defendant Trump put his clothes back on and when the Plaintiff, Katie Johnson, sobbed about being afraid that Defendant Trump had impregnated her, Defendant Trump angrily threw $100 bills at her and screamed at her ‘to get a f***ing abortion’ with the money.’

Obviously, these allegations wouldn’t have a very salutary effect on Trump’s political stock. Are they at all credible?

Trump, as you might expect, says no.

“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.”

The complaint was filed pro se, which means the plaintiff herself wrote it and filed it. She doesn’t have a lawyer. It’s a $100 million lawsuit without a lawyer. Which isn’t great from a credibility standpoint. But then again, now that it’s out there and it’s in the press, she might have a lawyer soon. This is the kind of thing that usually trails Gloria Allred into before long – which wouldn’t make it any more credible than it is now, but the point being just because there isn’t a lawyer attached to it yet doesn’t mean it’s not true.

The fact that it suggests the plaintiff has witnesses who will corroborate her story does give it a little bit of juice, though not a whole lot.

Radar Online has the little black book which had all of the names of Epstein’s sex slaves in it, and Radar says there is no Katie Johnson in that book. Which isn’t great, but on the other hand there is no particular reason to think everybody in that book was using their real name or that “Katie Johnson” is a real name. The names of the witnesses in the complaint are Tiffany Doe and Mary Doe, after all.

So there isn’t a lot to evaluate.

Does it sound credible? That’s probably in the eye of the beholder. If you like Trump you think this is garbage; if not you probably would recall that it sounds a little like some of the things Ivana Trump alleged in the 1991 divorce papers between the two. And then there’s the fact that we know Trump and Epstein had a personal connection. We know this because Trump admitted that fact in 2002, though he now says he doesn’t know the billionaire pedophile. Epstein was also a member of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club.

Here’s what Trump said about Epstein…

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Ouch.

Trump threw it out there that this might be “politically motivated,” which would have to be an accusation that Ted Cruz is behind it. The Clintons would certainly not be above cooking up something like this, but given that we also know Bill Clinton was connected with Epstein and actually flew on Epstein’s plane down to his private island where those infamous pedophile orgies took place, you’d think they wouldn’t want to go there unless and until Trump started talking about it first.

As to Cruz, though, if the campaign was behind this why wouldn’t they have dropped it sooner? As in, immediately after Trump orchestrated the National Enquirer sleaze claiming Cruz’ sexual infidelity which didn’t stick. You’d want that to pop out two days or so later. The timing on this seems more imprecise than you’d expect from him, plus he hasn’t thrown personal shots like this before. It isn’t like Trump can whine too much if Cruz did do this, though – when you sic the Enquirer on Cruz, he can pretty much do anything he wants without being the bad guy.

Either way, between this and the Trump University suit being cleared for trial the Republican Party’s frontrunner has more baggage than Louis Vuitton. We’ve never seen anything like this.

Steve Deace is one of Ted Cruz’ more combative surrogates, and he maybe could have been a little more understated in applying the rhetorical hammer to Trump mouthpiece Kayleigh McEnany, but the argument can be made that somebody needed to do this.

The narrative that Colorado and Wyoming and the other states operating on the basis of caucuses and state conventions to pick delegates rather than primaries are somehow “voterless primaries” is a false one, and it’s defamatory to representative democracy. When 65,000 people show up at precinct caucuses around the state of Colorado to choose their neighbors as delegates to county caucuses and those county caucuses choose delegates to the state assembly at which delegates to the Republican convention in Cleveland are chosen, that’s not “voterless” at all. In fact, it’s actually a pretty cool system – it’s a lot more personal than going into a voting booth for two minutes, and it’s a lot more participatory process. It might not be for everybody, but the people of Colorado like it. They’ve used it for over a century; it was instituted in 1912, though from 1992 to 2000 they departed from it only to return to it in 2004.

Nobody ever said it was illegitimate to pick delegates this way until Trump’s incompetent campaign got killed in Colorado. As David Limbaugh said this week, the “voterless primary” stuff is a junk media narrative the Trump campaign cooked up to mask thefact they weren’t organized enough to properly compete in contests depending on a ground game. Rather than admit it wasn’t their forte, they shot at Cruz by suggesting he “stole” delegates in a “rigged” system and in so doing they delegitimized the Republican Party of all the states involved.

It’s no wonder those people, whom Trump will need – Colorado is a swing state, after all – hate him. That’s an incompetent campaign.

Simplistic-Weapon-12-Battle-Axes-in-Saltire – Sorry for all the Trump-bashing in today’s Battlefield, but we have one more item – namely, Jay Cost’s Twitter fusillade yesterday, which must be seen. Cost, the elections analyst and author, went after Trump not on an ideological basis, though he certainly doesn’t accept him as a conservative, but on the basis of character and temperament. Very convincingly.

Read the entire sequence here, but a little taste…

As we said, read the whole thing.

Simplistic-Weapon-12-Battle-Axes-in-Saltire – For Today’s Last Thing, we have this. It’s a music video of a song we can’t get out of our heads.

Song’s OK, but the video’s uproariously entertaining…
