THE sex trafficking trial of Jeffrey’s Epstein’s alleged “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell started on Monday, and Lawrence Visoski, Epstein’s former pilot who is testifying for the prosecution, claimed former President Donald Trump flew on Epstein’s aircraft.
Visoski was asked during cross examination about passengers on Epstein’s Gulf Stream plane and confirmed Trump, Prince Andrew, and former President Bill Clinton had all flown on it.
“I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him,” the pilot told the trial.
Prosecutors allege that an address book containing the contact information of the alleged victims belonged to Maxwell, and that she and Epstein used it.
The court will hear testimony about the book from a former employee at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion.
The judge said after hearing the testimony, she will then decide if the jury can see any of the book.
The news comes as false reports of the press being banned from the courtroom emerged.
Before the crux of the trial even got underway, online trolls claimed there was a “gag order” barring coverage of the event, but there is no such order in place for the trial, according to Newsweek.
The case could see bombshell revelations from the murky world of Epstein emerge as Maxwell answers six charges relating to the trafficking and abuse of four victims.
Maxwell faces allegations that she procured girls for Epstein while also participating in the abuse herself on a number of occasions. Prosecutors allege she and Epstein exploited girls as young as 14.
Maxwell’s lawyers deny all charges against her and will attempt to argue her relationship with Epstein has been overstated.
