On Tuesday, a woman by the pseudonym “Jane” testified that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell started sexually abusing her when she was 14.
At the booth, Jane said she met Epstein and Maxwell in 1994 while eating ice cream at a warehouse where he was a “benefactor”. CNN reports.
Jane also testified that she and her mother had tea with Epstein after meeting the confidante and businessman at camp, where it was determined that he would be her mentor. Soon afterwards, the then 14-year-old visited Epstein alone at his home.
Initially, Jane shared that Maxwell and Epstein “made her feel special – spending time with her, asking about her family and interests, and taking her to fun things.”
As we shared more details, the nature of the testimony became a little illustrative with shocking revelations.
Jane testified: “At least once Maxwell ‘instructed’ her how to massage Epstein while the three of them were in Epstein’s ‘massage room’.
Jane also testified that Epstein would “masturbate” on her. “Sometimes Epstein would masturbate and molest her,” she said. Maxwell was involved at times and touched her and Epstein. “
It was also revealed during the testimony that Epstein brought Jane to Florida when she was 14 to meet Donald Trump. Jane claimed “no inappropriate behavior on the part of Trump when she met him at his resort in Mar-a-Lago”.
As you may know, Maxwell was charged in July 2020 with seducing minors to travel to engage in illegal sexual acts, as well as of conveyance and conspiracy to convey minors with the intent of engaging in criminal sexual activities for allegedly grooming underage girls and to be recruited from 1994 to 1997. “
Two sexual trafficking charges were added after alleging Maxwell had interactions with a 14-year-old girl on several separate occasions in Palm Beach, Florida.
Epstein committed suicide in 2019.
