Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, along with Prince Andrew of Britain, all flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, according the convicted pedophile’s pilot, who testified Tuesday at the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.
The two former U.S. presidents and the Duke of York were all mentioned as Maxwell is being tried on six charges of sex trafficking and sexual abuse over her alleged role as Epstein’s “madam.”
“Lawrence Visoski, who is testifying for the prosecution, was quizzed during cross examination about passengers aboard Epstein’s distinctive Gulf Stream plane,” The Sun reported. “He confirmed Trump, Andrew and Clinton all flew on the jet – along with other big names such as Hollywood stars Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and U.S. Sens. John Glenn and George Mitchell, both Democrats.
“I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him,” the pilot said during his testimony, noting that Trump’s flight occurred well before he was elected president.
The pilot also testified that he flew about 1,000 flights for the pedophile from the early 1990s to 2004.
Maxwell, the British socialite who is accused of serving as a madam for Epstein and procuring him underage girls for sex, could spend 70 years in prison — a life sentence for the 59-year-old — if convicted on all charges.
She faces six counts for allegedly recruiting, grooming and abusing four minor girls with Epstein in the U.S. and in Britain between 1994 through 2004. She is also accused of engaging in “group sexual encounters” with Epstein and an underage girl — identified in court documents as “Minor Victim-1” — from 1994 to 1997, according to the indictments.
Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the six-count indictment against her and is being held in a New York jail sometimes referred to as a “hellhole.” As The Daily Wire previously reported, Maxwell allegedly believes that Epstein was murdered in prison and that she could be a target. A federal judge denied her bail “and ordered that she be held at the Brooklyn Detention Center, where she has been held since shortly after her July 2 arrest in New Hampshire.”
Epstein died in his prison cell on August 10, 2019, But contrary to Maxwell’s claim, New York City’s chief medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.
In August 2020, eight women saying they were victims of Epstein detailed their alleged encounters with him in a Lifetime documentary titled “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein.” The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo reported that one of the alleged victims “recalled Maxwell showing her how to give Epstein a massage, which she said quickly turned into the pair sexually abusing her.”
Maxwell was born in France and is the daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell, who died in mysterious circumstances in 1991. After that, Maxwell became known as a wealthy socialite and she was often photographed at celebrity events hobnobbing with rich and powerful people.
In March, a woman filed suit claiming the pair repeatedly raped her in front of her young son.
The new allegations were filed against Epstein’s estate at the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Florida, according to The Telegraph. The woman accuses the couple in the civil lawsuit of “rape, sex trafficking, sexual abuse, physical assault, physical mutilation, emotional distress, blackmail, intimidation, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation.”
After meeting the pair, she says Maxwell “began an extended effort of persuasion and grooming.” She said during a visit to Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, “that she was raped by the billionaire ‘with Maxwell’s assistance.’”
