A woman who says she was sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell testified Wednesday that Epstein took her to meet Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, when she was 14 years old, CNBC reports.
The woman, in testimony at Maxwell’s federal sex crimes trial on Wednesday, did not allege any improper conduct by Trump when she met him at his Mar-a-Lago resort nor did she characterize what happened at that meeting.
But the woman, who was testifying under the pseudonym “Jane,” also said she had competed in the 1998 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant, an event associated with the former president.
“Maxwell is charged with procuring the woman, who was testifying under the pseudonym ‘Jane,’ and other then-underage girls to be sexually abused by Epstein, a money manager who for years socialized with Trump, former President Bill Clinton, Britain’s Prince Andrew, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and other wealthy and powerful people,” the CNBC report stated. “Jane is the first of those accusers to testify at the trial, which began Monday.”
Maxwell’s lawyer, Laura Menninger, asked Jane if Epstein introduced her to Trump.
“Yes,” Jane replied.
On Tuesday, a pilot testified at Maxwell’s trial that Trump flew on Epstein’s private plane. “I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him,” pilot Larry Visoski told the court. He also named Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker as passengers.
