At the sex trafficking trial of Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Lawrence Visoski, who worked for the late financier for nearly 30 years, testified.
The pilot claims he has never seen any sexual activity on the planes, but the cockpit door was always closed during flight.
On Tuesday, Jeffrey Epstein ‘s long-time pilot testified at the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell for sex trafficking that he once flew Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump on the financier’s private planes.
The Testimony of Visoki
For nearly 30 years, Lawrence Visoski has been working for Jeffrey Epstein. He was told when VIPs would board “because you want the plane to look nice”.
In addition to Clinton, Prince Andrew, and Trump, Visoski said he also flew actor Kevin Spacey.
Visoski, the trial’s first witness, said he flew several high-profile guests of Jeffrey Epstein. They include Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker, as well as violinist Itzhak Perlman, and was able to watch them board. According to The NY Times, although the cockpit door is close during flights, they allow him to walk through the passenger area if he needed the restroom.
In his view, Epstein’s passengers on the plane were all over the age of 18 unless their parents accompanied them. Further, he said he never saw any sexual activity or evidence of it.
When asked whether he witnessed any sex acts involving underage girls, he answered, “Certainly not,” according to the Times.
In his statement, Visoski recalls meeting one of Epstein’s accusers. According to her, she was 14 when Epstein and Maxwell recruited her to have sex with Epstein and other powerful men. Visoski describes her as a mature woman with powder-blue eyes.
Epstein’s past guests, including Clinton * who in 2002 was praising Epstein’s philanthropy work in Africa * say they were not aware of any misconduct. In 2002, Trump calls Epstein an old friend and a “terrific guy.” In 2019, he say he “wasn’t a fan” of Epstein and that they had a falling out years ago.
Allegations on Prince Andrew
Prince Andrew has publicly denied the allegations against him but hasn’t made himself available for questioning by U.S. prosecutors. He is facing accusations of sexually abusing a teen who he knew through Epstein and Maxwell. There is no case against Maxwell in New York involving these allegations.
In a plea agreement, Maxwell has denied grooming underage victims for sex with Epstein and others. Sadly, he died in prison in 2019. He was in the process of facing trial for sex trafficking. Hanging was the cause of his death.
Prosecutors have claimed that Epstein’s private properties were the sites of the abuse, which included an estate in Palm Beach, Florida; a Manhattan townhouse; a ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico; an apartment in Paris; and a luxury estate in the Virgin Islands.
