Ghislaine Maxwell trial: Trump, Clinton, Prince Andrew named-dropped during Epstein pilot testimony

Asia's Tech News Daily

Prince Andrew and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump were among the high-profile men to get name-dropped Tuesday at Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial in Manhattan.

Maxwell’s defense attorney quizzed Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime former pilot Lawrence Paul Visoski Jr., about the politicians and celebrities he flew on the late pedophile’s private plane.

“Former President Bill Clinton flew on some of the flights?” lawyer Christian Everdell asked.

“Yes,” Visoski replied.

The aviator also testified under cross-examination that he remembered Prince Andrew riding on Epstein’s planes and said he shuttled former President Donald Trump “more than once.”

Asked whether Trump flew on the jet with his family, Visoski testified, “I don’t remember that.”

But, he added, “I certainly remember President Trump.”

Other bold-faced names Visoski recalled seeing on the jet included accused perv actor Kevin Spacey, comedian Chris Tucker, famed violinist Itzhak Perlman and former Sens. George Mitchell and John Glenn.

Visoski said under cross-examination that he would have been told in advance if a big namelike Clinton was going to be a passenger on the jet.

“There might be special catering?” Everdell asked about the ex-president, who has been photographed with Maxwell aboard the “Lolita Express.”

“Sure,” Visoski replied.

When asked if he remembered a victim in the case, identified only as “Jane,” riding on the plane, the pilot said: “I can’t visualize her sitting in the passenger compartment like I would, say, President Clinton.”

The pilot also recalled flying Epstein to Columbus, Ohio, where the convicted sex offender had a home — near one owned by one of his business associates, Victoria’s Secret founder Les Wexner.

“Mr. Epstein would call him a client, yes,” Visoski said when asked about his former boss’ relationship to Wexner

Prince Andrew has maintained that he never had sex with Virginia Roberts-Giuffre despite her saying they met several times.

Epstein also gave Visoski — his employee of close to 30 years — a number of pricey gifts throughout his employment, including 40 acres of land on his New Mexico ranch for him to build a house. 

The financier also paid for Visoski’s two daughters’ private high school education, the pilot testified.

Epstein listed a number of fancy sports in Visoski’s name, including a Land Rover, a Mercedes and a Jaguar, he said. The pilot said the cars were Epstein’s but he and other staff were allowed to drive them near his Palm Beach, Fla. mansion.
