on back in 2019 that National Enquirer was hiding - especially the rape of the 13yo girl by Trump and Epstein?

https://www.scribd.com/document/326057237/Tiffany-Doe-Declaration

“On July 23, 2016, “Joan Doe,” a classmate of Johnson during the 1994–1995 school year, signed an affidavit avowing that Johnson had told her during the summer of 1994 about the sexual assaults by Epstein and Trump.

Another witness, “Tiffany Doe,” signed an affidavit in support of Johnson’s suit on June 18, 2016. Tiffany Doe stated that she had been hired in 1990 by Epstein when she was 22 to “provide entertainment” for his various “guests.” She further stated that Epstein hired her in 1991 as a “party planner” to, among other duties, entice “attractive adolescent women” to attend Epstein’s parties. Tiffany Doe stated that she personally witnessed Trump’s sexual assault and rape of Johnson during four encounters.”

Give us more ‘peckerdillos.’ Seriously, though, as I recall Katie Johnson (the then 13 year old) withdrew her charges just before the ‘16 election. Given the timing, many felt she was paid off. I think she can press charges again,

I would guess she was paid off, because Trump certainly never tried to sue her for defamation, did he?

None of them would believe it, and if by chance it did make some of them reconsider supporting the mango messiah, they'd say, "Oh, she had it coming to her. She lead our savior down her wicked path." You know they would. 😤

I hope so much dirty, rotten, crap comes forth from the Pecker vaults it'll keep the vast majority of independents from voting for the rotten son-of-a-bitch anyway. 😡

I really think that the David Pecker testimony is way more important and way more dangerous for Trump in the long run. Especially with the rape charges and the disappearance of a 12yo girl he raped as per the Tiffany Doe affidavit that corroborated the Jane Doe affidavit.

many victims of his crimes, including that poor woman, will feel it is safe to come forward and tell their stories. That woman wasn't PAID off, she was SCARED off!
There are skeletons in the closets of Trump and Epstein -- not metaphors, REAL skeletons!

It would be explosive if some of this gets exposed in testimony during the NY trial. I'm worried that the Stormy Daniels story is old news and Trump's zombie followers will just take the trial as evidence of him being persecuted.

But, if some of the other stories are made public, there could be a media feeding frenzy over it. I'm listening to this weekend's The Daily podcast and it's a former National Enquirer editor talking about them paying to silence stories about other Trump affairs and illegitimate children. Really hope this takes off.
