The trial of the infamous associate of the now deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has now begun, and a new surge of information has already emerged.
On Tuesday, Epstein’s longtime pilot testified, revealing details about Maxwell’s involement.
As Fox News reports:
A longtime pilot for the late financier Jeffrey Epstein resumed his testimony at Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial Tuesday, saying that the British socialite charged with helping him find teenage girls to sexually abuse them was “No. 2” in the hierarchy of Epstein’s operations.
Lawrence Paul Visoski Jr. is the first witness in the sex trafficking trial of Maxwell, 59, a woman who traveled for decades in circles that put her in contact with accomplished and wealthy people before her July 2020 arrest.
Asked where Maxwell stood in the hierarchy of Epstein’s world, Visoski said Maxwell “was the No. 2.” He added that “Epstein was the big No. 1.”
The testimony supports what Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara Pomerantz told jurors in her opening statement Monday when she said Epstein and Maxwell were “partners in crime.”
Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges and her lawyer is now claiming that she’s is being made into a scapegoat for the behavior of Epstein.
