The Lincoln Project releases new video targeting Trump comments on Ghislaine Maxwell (The Hill link): The Lincoln Project, the anti-Trump GOP super PAC, released a new video Friday criticizing President Trump’s friendly remarks toward Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime associate of Jeffrey Epstein who is awaiting trial on charges that she helped recruit girls who were sexually abused.
Trump said that he met Maxwell "numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach, and I guess they lived in Palm Beach."
"But I wish her well, whatever it is," he added.
Prosecutors allege Maxwell helped persuade and transport minors to engage in sexual acts with Epstein and others in the mid-1990s, and at times participated in the abuse herself. Her trial is scheduled to begin in July 2021. The minute-long Lincoln Project ad shows footage of Trump engaging with Maxwell and Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell last year.
