Woman who accused Trump of sexually assaulting her at age 13 to speak out for the first time

On Thursday, the woman who accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her when she was 13 years old will speak out for the first time. The woman, who has remained anonymous and has only been identified under the pseudonym "Jane Doe," came forward earlier this year with her allegations, but Thursday's press conference will be her first public appearance:

Reports of Doe's accusations first surfaced in an article written in June by attorney Lisa Bloom. Doe alleges that Trump sexually assaulted her on numerous occasions "at parties in New York in 1994," the press release noted.

Trump has denied the claims. "The allegations are reckless, irresponsible, and categorically untrue," his attorney Alan Garten has said.

The press conference will take place Thursday at 6 p.m. ET. A court date has already been set for Dec. 16.
