TRUMP FEARED BEING TIED TO SEX SCANDAL: AUTHOR
WASHINGTON Donald Trump feared that Ghislaine Maxwell could embroil him in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, the author Michael Wolff has claimed in a new book.
The former president had sought to play down his long association with the disgraced financier, who was found dead in his prison cell in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
The arrest of Maxwell, who faces charges stemming from her relationship with Epstein, worried Trump, Wolff wrote in his latest book detailing the final days of the Trump administration.
“Has she said anything about me? Is she going to talk? Will she roll on anybody?” Trump is alleged to have said.
Wolff's book, Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency, said Trump was rumoured to be considering running for the House of Representatives, so he could lead an attempt to impeach his successor, Joe Biden.
