TRUMP FEARED BEING TIED TO SEX SCANDAL: AUTHOR

- The Daily Telegraph

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.
