In an interview with Axios, US President Donald Trump said that the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire accused of sexual harassment of minors, in prison, was not a fact.
Trump was asked to explain why he wished publicly, all the best for the detained British Gillyn Maxwell in the United States on charges of Epstein's participation in the crime of sexual exploitation of minors, so he said: "Her boyfriend or lover died in prison committing suicide or was killed. She is now in prison. I wished her well", The US president stressed that Maxwell's guilt has not yet been proven in court.
And Trump added, "Her lover died in prison, and people are still trying to figure out how it happened. Was it the reason for that killing or suicide?" Trump said he believed there was no definitive answer to this question yet.
It is reported that Geoffrey Epstein was arrested on July 6, 2019 in New York, and committed suicide in prison on August 10 of last year, before the trial process for sexual trafficking in enslaved women began.
Epstein was accused of founding a criminal network, which allowed him to sexual exploitation and abuse of dozens of underage girls.
Reports suggest that he continued the slave trade until 2019, and some of his presumed victims were less than 14 years old. As for Gillyn Maxwell, she is the daughter of media magnate Robert Maxwell, who owned one of the oldest publishing houses in the world - Macmillan.
The US Attorney confirmed that she was in close relationship with Epstein, and assisted him in committing sexual crimes.
