Ghislaine Maxwell trial LIVE – Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘madam’ case continues after butler’s bombshell testimony
THE sex trafficking trial of Jeffrey’s Epstein’s alleged “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell started on Monday, and a former employee testified said Maxwell “took over” Epstein’s life.
While Juan Alessi — who looked after Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion for 12 years — was giving evidence in New York this week, he said the British socialite announced that she was the “lady of the house” in regards to the residence.
“She also told me she was in charge of (Epstein’s) other properties. I was only supposed to speak to Mr Epstein when he asked a question,” he said.
Plus, Lawrence Visoski, Epstein’s former pilot who is testified for the prosecution, 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.
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.
