The trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell continues and more details about her alleged involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes are being revealed.

One accuser, who was identified only as “Jane”, took the stand and testified that Maxwell was actually in the room when Epstein sexually assaulted when she was 14 years old.

Jane also named Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Mike Wallace as members of Epstein and Maxwell’s social circle.

At the time of Epstein’s arrest back in 2019, Alan Garten, an attorney for the Trump Organization, said Trump had “no relationship” with Epstein—despite the fact that Trump has spoken about his friendship with the financier.

A particularly shocking moment of the trail was when Epstein’s longtime pilot Larry Visoski testified that passengers on Epstein’s plane included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Itzhak Perlman, Donald Trump, Chris Tucker, John Glenn, Kevin Spacey, and George Mitchell.

Though Visoski also stated that he never saw Maxwell or Epstein being inappropriate with minors, the name-dropping has caused a tremendous reaction online.

“Right Wing Media Headline: Trump was innocently taking flying lessons from Epstein's pilot. 🙄,” reads one tweet.

“’He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.’ -- Donald Trump talking about ‘terrific guy’ Jeffrey Epstein.”

“Republicans as they try to explain why Donald Trump being on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet is actually good,” one Twitter user said.

Another wrote, “Qanon's excuse: ‘Trump was just an undercover agent flying on Epstein's plane so as to bring down his child sex ring.’”
