Lawsuit accusing Donald Trump of rape gets hearing date

A FEDERAL judge has ordered a status conference hearing after a woman filed a lawsuit claiming Donald Trump raped her when she was 13-years-old in 1994.

In the lawsuit a witness, identified by the pseudonym Tiffany Doe, alleges she saw Mr Trump and billionaire-paedophile Jeffrey Epstein repeatedly rape the plaintiff, identified as Jane Doe.

The complaint claims Epstein hired an unidentified woman to pick up teenage girls to bring to his parties.

The plaintiff's third attempt in filing the lawsuit features a new witness named Joan Doe.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations.

"As I have said before, the allegations are categorically untrue and an obvious publicity stunt aimed at smearing my client," Alan Garten, Mr Trump's attorney, told LawNewz.com.

She accused him of rape after he allegedly ripped her clothes off to have sex with her in a "violent assault".

Mr Trump denied the allegation and said it was "obviously false".
