Donald trump is definitely good for the publishing industry as another book on the former president hit bookstores. Michael Wolff’s latest publication, Landslide: The Last Days of the Trump Presidency, addresses a topic that many people would like answers to – his connection to Jeffery Epstein.
Now Trump isn’t the only prominent figure with questionable ties to the now deceased and convicted pedophile – yes, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew I still have explanations to make – but the 45th president would have had some concerns about the information Ghislaine Maxwell had on him. According to Wolff, the issue arose at the end of his administration when pardons were being granted and he was considering giving one to Epstein’s ex-girlfriend. But as an alleged sex trafficker who procured young girls and women for Epstein, a pardon from Maxwell made the former president nervous about being somehow tied to the “sex abuse scandal.”
“An ‘oh, shit’ moment involved [Trump’s] sudden interest in Ghislaine Maxwell, the former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein now faces years in prison for allegations of his role in Epstein’s sexual abuse scandal, ”an expert reads, per People. “Trump had tried to play down his own long relationship with Epstein.” With their friendship dating back to the late 1980s, Wolff’s book claims the 45th President was outwardly anxious about any information Maxwell might have about him. The excerpt continues, “Did she say anything about me?” ” [Trump] openly wondered. ‘Is she going to talk? Will she roll over someone? ‘”
While Trump has not publicly commented on the allegations in the author’s book, his spokesperson, Liz Harrington, did of course to tweet this “all these stories from Michael Wolff’s book are not trueBecause “Wolff never questioned President Trump about them, if he had he would have refuted them.” False news! Wolff maintains that all stories were verified prior to publication. He responded on Twitter, “From LANDSLIDE:” The former president’s office received a detailed summary of… the material presented in this book. Its staff either confirmed events … or challenged [matters] were only included if confirmed by multiple sources.
There hasn’t been much movement in the court proceedings, but Maxwell is expected to stand trial later this year. Once this court case officially begins, there are many public figures who could be implicated by Maxwell. Does Trump have something to fear?
