Trump Brought Son Eric Onto Flight With Jeffrey Epstein When Eric Was Just 11-Years-Old

I already thought I knew every disgusting thing Donald Trump has ever done, but now something else has come along to add an all-new facet to just how disgusting he really is.

Recently released flight logs that are currently being used in the federal trial against Ghislaine Maxwell reveal that the ex-president brought his then-11-year-old son Eric along on a flight with the late convicted sex offender/billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 1995, Radar reports. According to the flight logs, Trump brought young Eric along on a flight with Epstein and Maxwell from Palm Beach, Florida to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on August 13, 1995.

On Monday, a 118-page log of flight records kept by Epstein’s two pilots was presented as evidence against Maxwell. The logs only reveal the flights made between April 1991 and January 2006, but they revealed a number of shockers, showing that Trump and former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private planes far more often than previously thought.

But as far as family, Trump didn’t just bring Eric on the 1995 flight — he also brought then-wife Marla Maples and their infant daughter Tiffany on another flight, in 1994.

While the logs show Trump flew on Epstein’s planes a total of six times between 1991 and 2006, they also show that Clinton flew the private jets a total of nine times in the same time period. But Trump and Clinton aren’t the only members of the well-heeled whose names show up on the flight logs. Bobby Kennedy Jr., former Senator George Mitchell, and Israeli-American violinist Itzhak Perlman are also mentioned.

While the flight logs are a key part of the prosecution’s case against Maxwell, who has been charged with six counts of sex trafficking minors for Epstein, prosecutors are alleging that she definitely knew what she was doing, even as she claims that she’s merely a scapegoat for Epstein’s actions. Epstein committed suicide in 2019 while he was incarcerated and awaiting his own federal trial.

Radar reported earlier that Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe referred to Maxwell as a “sophisticated predator” on Monday, arguing that “she knew exactly what she was doing.”

“Maxwell was Jeffrey Epstein’s right hand,” Moe told the court. “She was a grown woman who preyed on vulnerable kids. She caused deep and lasting harm to young girls.”

If Maxwell is found guilty on all counts, she faces at least 80 years in prison for her crimes. This may well be appropriate because many of the young girls victimized by Epstein will be imprisoned by nightmarish memories for the rest of their lives.
