Sex Crime Accuser Testifies Jeffrey Epstein Took Her To Meet Trump When She Was 14

Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein

During testimony at Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking trial on Wednesday, a woman who says she was sexually abused by late sex criminal and financier Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell testified that Epstein took her to meet Donald Trump at his Florida club when she was 14 years old, CNBC reports.

The woman did not offer details of what happened at that meeting, which she confirmed under cross-examination by Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

Maxwell is accused of “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 influential people,” CNBC journalists Dan Mangan and Tom Winter wrote.

Jane is the first of those accusers to testify at the trial, which began Monday. Her account of meeting Trump was described in an interview she gave federal investigators, which Menninger asked her about Wednesday.

“Mr. Epstein introduced you to Donald Trump, correct?” Menninger asked.

Jane replied, “Yes.”

Jane said Epstein took her to Mar-a-Lago in a dark green car.

A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment.
