(RoyalPatriot.com )- On Monday, the prosecution in Ghislaine Maxwell’s criminal sex trafficking trial called Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime private pilot Lawrence Paul Visoski to the stand.
Visoski told jurors that Maxwell was on “a lot of flights” and described her relationship with Epstein as “more personal than business.” Visoski said Maxwell and Epstein never publicly flaunted their relationship, but he considered them “couple-ish.”
He explained that Maxwell oversaw Epstein’s many households, and described in detail the layout of Epstein’s properties in New York and Paris. He also gave details about Little St. James, Epstein’s private Caribbean island subsequently dubbed “Pedo Island.”
Visoski worked as the pilot of Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” from 1991 to 2019. According to his testimony, he frequently flew Maxwell and Epstein and their guests from one Epstein property to another all over the world.
During cross-examination on Tuesday, Maxwell’s defense questioned Visoski about some of the “guests” who flew on the “Lolita Express.” He acknowledged that former President Bill Clinton flew on some of the flights. Visoski also remembered Prince Andrew Duke of York aboard flights, and said he shuttled Donald Trump “more than once.”
Defense attorney Christian Everdell asked the pilot if Trump flew with his family or alone, but Visoski couldn’t remember.
Other big names Visoski recalls flying included disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, comedian Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and two former Senators – George Mitchell and John Glenn.
Visoski said he always received a heads up in advance if a VIP passenger like Bill Clinton would be aboard the flight.
Visoski said his interactions with Ghislaine Maxwell were in a business capacity, saying she handled things like his expense reports. He referred to Maxwell as “the Number 2” while Jeffrey Epstein was “a big Number 1.”
Over the years, Visoski said, he grew closer to Maxwell and even attended the helicopter license classes with her when she was training to become a pilot. Visoski said his two daughters went horseback riding with Maxwell at Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico. Epstein even paid for his daughters to attend a private high school.
