Trump rape accuser cancels public appearance after numerous threats
The woman, known as "Jane Doe" in her lawsuit, is represented by Lisa Bloom, who also represents another Trump accuser.
The woman who alleged that GOP nominee Donald Trump raped her when she was 13 canceled a press conference on Wednesday. Her attorney, Lisa Bloom, said “Jane Doe” was threatened and — out of fear—decided not to speak out.
