Lisa Bloom, the attorney representing a woman who has accused Donald Trump of raping her as a teenager, said her website was hacked by Anonymous on Wednesday.
“Our firm’s website was reportedly hacked today, as well as emails. Anonymous claims responsibility,” Bloom wrote on Twitter, quoting a tweet from an anonymous account that read “No LiveStream for you Lisa Bloom HA HA HA HA HA.”
Bloom’s client, “Jane Doe,” was scheduled to appear at a press conference Wednesday afternoon, but Bloom later informed reporters that the woman backed out at the last minute after receiving threats.
“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” Bloom said. “She is living in fear. She has decided that she is too afraid to show her face. She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately, she’s in terrible fear. So we’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came.”
A lawsuit filed in April in California claimed Trump and financier Jeffrey Epstein made the plaintiff, listed in court documents as “Katie Johnson,” a sex slave in 1994 when she was 13 years old.
Trump has denied the charges, telling RadarOnline in April, “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.”
