People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle announced on Tuesday that this week’s issue, which hits the newsstands on Wednesday, will feature a story centered around Natasha Stoynoff, a former reporter for the magazine. Stoynoff recently came forward as part of a group of women alleging sexual assault brought on by Republican nominee Donald Trump. According to Cagle, the feature article will include named sources who can corroborate Stoynoff’s account of the 2005 assault. One of the sources includes a friend who was actually with Stoynoff when she ran into Melania Trump on Fifth Avenue. Melania Trump has gone on the record saying no such chance meeting ever occurred.
Donald Trump has vehemently denied forcing himself on Stoynoff during an interview as she alleges. In fact, he has denied all allegations brought forth by several women and labeled them as being politically motivated. The day after People published Stoynoff’s initial story, Melania Trump’s attorney requested a redaction of a portion of the story wherein Stoynoff recalls bumping into Melania Trump after the alleged incident.
