Ghislaine Maxwell finally faces trial as a federal court has begun hearing the opening arguments.
Maxwell denies recruiting and grooming girls as young as 14 for Jeffrey Epstein over a 10-year period between 1994 and 2004.
She is also accused of participating in Epstein’s abuse.
The trial will go on for around six weeks, and if found guilty, Maxwell could face up to 80 years behind bars.
Lawrence Visoki, the pilot of Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, the Lolita Express, has already dropped a huge bombshell as he testified that Donald Trump was among the passengers on his flights.
‘I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him.’
Other celebrities he listed are Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey and Prince Andrew.
An alleged ‘sex slave’ of Epstein’s has also testified that she flew with the former President.
The victim was only 14 years old at the time, and under the pseudonym ‘Jane’, she was questioned.
‘Mr Epstein introduced you to Donald Trump, correct?’ defence lawyer Laura Menninger asked, to which she replied, ‘Yes.’
‘He took you to Mar-a-Lago when you were 14, you claim?’ the attorney continued. ‘Yes,’ Jane replied. ‘He took you in a dark green car and you met Donald Trump there, correct?’ Menninger asked. ‘Correct,’ Jane said. ‘You remember Prince Andrew being on a flight with you?’ Menninger asked. ‘Yes,’ Jane replied.
Jane has not accused Trump or Prince Andrew of any misconduct.
Juan Alessi, Epsitein’s former housekeeper for Epstein, has also testified, revealing the rules they were made to obey while working there.
He said the 58 page booklet included commands such as “unobtrusive is the key”, “SMILE!”, “NEVER disclose Mr Epstein or Ms Maxwell’s activities or whereabouts to anyone”, as well as an order to “see nothing” and “say nothing”.
Alessi also alleged that Maxwell ordered employees to never look Epstein in the eye and to look away as they answered his questions. Staff were were also forbidden from eating or drink in front of Epstein and weren’t allowed to wear “strong perfume” or “aftershave”.
Alessi went on to claim he picked up a ’14 or 15 year old’ girl from school and bring her to Epstein in 1994. He also accused Maxwell of driving the young girl too.
Meanwhile, new documents released about Jeffrey Epstein have got everyone talking.
There’s been many conspiracies surrounding the death of the disgraced financier Epstein when he was found dead in his cell.
Now the New York Times released a bombshell report after they had issued a FOIA request with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and obtained over 2,000 pages of reports.
And people think it proves Epstein didn’t take his own life.
As per the New York Times:
The disgraced financier, jailed in Manhattan on federal sex trafficking charges involving teenage girls, was found unconscious on the floor of his cell one morning in July 2019, a strip of bedsheet tied around his bruised neck.
In the hours and days that followed that suicide attempt, Jeffrey Epstein would claim to be living a “wonderful life,” denying any thoughts of ending it, even as he sat on suicide watch and faced daunting legal troubles.
“I have no interest in killing myself,” Mr. Epstein told a jailhouse psychologist, according to Bureau of Prisons documents that have not previously been made public. He was a “coward” and did not like pain, he explained. “I would not do that to myself.”
But two weeks later, he did just that: He died in his cell on Aug. 10 in the Metropolitan Correctional Center, having hanged himself with a bedsheet, the medical examiner ruled.
Now that is very unusual…
