A witness in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial claimed Wednesday that she was taken to meet former President Donald Trump when she was 14 years old and that she sang “Happy Birthday” to journalist Mike Wallace, the father of Fox News host Chris Wallace.
The witness, identified by the pseudonym “Jane,” testified that at the age of 14, the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein drove her to meet Trump in the 1990s at Mar-a-Lago, a resort owned by Trump in Palm Beach, Florida, NBC News reported.
The witness did not describe the meeting with Trump in detail. However, Maxwell’s defense attorney, Laura Menninger, reportedly asked, “Mr. Epstein introduced you to Donald Trump, correct?” to which Jane replied, “Yes.” (Related: Jeffrey Epstein’s Pilot Says He Flew Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Donald Trump On Private Jets)
