While Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell’s close relationship with prominent celebrities like former President Donald Trump was mostly common knowledge at the time of Maxwell’s trial in December, an anonymous sexual assault victim known as Kate confirmed that she saw these relationships take place behind closed doors. . While being trafficked by Maxwell and Epstein, Kate claims she met the couple’s many famous friends, including Trump and Prince Andrew, according to Forbes.
A recent report by The Times of London accuses Eptein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz of using the couple’s friendship with Trump to ask the former president if he would forgive Maxwell in his final days at the White House. Although Trump is said to have actually considered the idea of using his presidential authority to pardon Maxwell, this official pardon for Trump’s Maxwell has never been delivered. Maxwell’s brother Ian has confirmed that he discussed his sister’s forgiveness with Dershowitz. “There was a phone call between Professor Dershowitz and a family member in which the generic issue of pardons was brought up,” Ian told The Times of London.
Epstein’s lawyer Dershowitz also has a special connection to Trump, as he represented the former president during his impeachment trial. According to the New York Post, Dershowitz has also been charged with sexually assaulting Virginia Roberts Giuffre, the same woman who accused Prince Andrew of sexual assault. The lawyer has continuously denied these allegations.
