This comes as another woman—Jennifer Araoz—told NBC she was recruited by Epstein when she was just 14 years old, and raped by Epstein in his New York City townhouse when she was 15. She was interviewed by Savannah Guthrie.
Savannah Guthrie: “In your mind, did you use the word 'rape'? Did you recognize it then”—
Jennifer Araoz: “No.”
Savannah Guthrie: —”as rape?”
Jennifer Araoz: “No, I don’t think I did. I just thought, like, you know, it’s my fault, like I was like obligated, like that’s just what you’re supposed to do.”
On Wednesday, Araoz asked a New York City court for help in identifying the woman who first recruited her to come to Epstein’s mansion.
