Maxwell, a close associate of Jeffrey Epstein, is awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, to which she has pleaded not guilty. Epstein died in jail last year while he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges. Wolff said he would frequently interrupt conversations to ask: “Why do you think should be pardoned? Give me one person — who’s your top pick?”Of Maxwell, he asked “Has she said anything about me?” according to the book. Wolff reports that he added: “Is she going to talk? Will she roll on anybody?” The former president also considered giving himself a federal pardon, telling aides that “they say I can. Unlimited pardon power,” but was dissuaded from doing so due to the risk of triggering individual states to pursue prosecutions, Wolff alleges. Trump socialized with Maxwell on at least one occasion in 2000, when he was photographed with his wife Melania as well as Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein. He sent her well-wishes in July last year after she was arrested and did so again the following month.
