#1. Jeffrey Epstein

A friend of Trump’s for decades, Epstein was arrested on July 6, 2019, on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors.

The indictment charged Epstein with sexually exploiting and abusing “dozens” of underage girls at his homes in Manhattan, Palm Beach, and other locations for two decades. The total number of girls that were abused is unknown but is estimated to be over 100.

Trump talked about Epstein in a 2002 interview with New York Magazine “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

A former victim testified at Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial under the pseudonym Jane and said Jeffrey Epstein took her to meet Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago when she was just 14. Jane didn’t allege any improper behavior by Trump and didn’t go into further detail about why she was at the resort.

Epstein’s notorious “black book” of contacts, compiled largely by Ghislaine Maxwell, shows the rarefied circles in which he traveled—Nobel laureates, heads of states, British royals, Wall Street power brokers, and A-listers in every glamour profession.

Trump had no fewer than 16 phone numbers beside his name in Epstein’s black book.

#2. Ghislaine Maxwell

Jeffrey Epstein had a decades-long association with the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, leading to her 2021 conviction on U.S. federal charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy for helping him procure girls, including a 14-year-old, for child sexual abuse and prostitution.

Trump was friends with Maxwell for decades. After Maxwell’s arrest for sex trafficking, President Trump famously “wished her well.”

Maxwell told reporters “I was very touched that he would remember me and that he would wish me well. And I was very touched by his remembrance of me. It gave me a big boost.”

#3. Prince Andrew

Virginia Roberts Giuffre was recruited from Mar-A-Largo and became one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims who says she was coerced into having sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was a teenager. “It didn’t last very long, the whole entire procedure. It was disgusting. Um, he wasn’t mean or anything, but he got up and he said, ‘thanks,’ and walked out. And I sat there in bed just horrified and ashamed.”

Because of his involvement Prince Andrew was stripped of his royal and military honors by his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II. He has now been evicted from Buckingham Palace by his brother King Charles and has been told to find a new place to live immediately.

Donald Trump said this about Prince Andrew in a 2000 People Magazine interview “He’s not pretentious. He’s a lot of fun to be with.”

#4. Anton Lazzaro

A Republican donor convicted of sex trafficking teenage girls. He was found guilty of seven counts involving five girls aged 15 and 16.

Prosecutors argued during the trial that Lazzaro enlisted his co-defendant Gisela Castro Medina, who he initially paid for sex, to recruit other teenagers – preferably minors – who were white, small, vulnerable or “broken”.

Pictures on Lazzaro’s social media accounts showed him with prominent Republicans, including former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.

#5. John Casablancas

Friend of Trump that ran Elite Model Agency.

Teenage Elite models in the late 80s and early 90s were required to attend private dinners with Donald Trump, John Casablancas, and other men. Heather Braden, an Elite model, in the late 90s, alleges that she was instructed to go to a party in a mansion on one of the islands near Miami Beach where she witnessed Donald Trump and three famous actors, who she refused to name, prey on dozens of young models isolating many into bedrooms or other parts of the mansion, “Clearly, we were there for one reason. We were just pieces of meat.”.

According to witness Shayna Love, an Australian model who was 16, “It was presented as our duty as models at the agency. It wasn’t an invitation. It was like, you have to go and do this.” Love recalls attending a dinner with John Casablancas and Donald Trump “This time it was a private area, a big table and lots of girls – I’d say around 10 to 15 of us, all between the ages of 14 and 18. It was just us models, Trump and John. We were all underage, but we were offered drinks.” Love said she went home early, but other children stayed.

Eli Nessa, an Elite Model, stated, “We were a bunch of kids, just put there with all these older men.”

In 1993, the 50-year-old Casablancas married his third wife, 17-year-old Aline Wermelinger, winner of Elite Model Look 1992 in Brazil. Wermelinger was close in age to Casablancas’s children, who were 22 and 14 at the time.

#6. Tevfik Arif

A former Soviet trade minister whose company Bayrock (co-owned with convicted gangster Felix Sater) collaborated with Trump on at least four projects in Florida, New York, and Arizona. Bayrock also scouted potential Trump deals in Russia.

Information obtained by the US Senate Select Committee suggests Arif was involved in Russian organized crime, money laundering and human trafficking dating back to at least 2000.

He was arrested in a Turkish prostitution sting. Authorities busted him aboard the world’s largest luxury yacht and accused him of linking up wealthy businessman with Russian and Ukrainian hookers, some of them underage.

Following his arrest, Arif denies involvement in prostitution or human trafficking. He says the women were invited as guests of the businessmen.

#7. Ali Alexander

Alexander is the founder of the campaign to push the conspiracy that Donald Trump was the actual winner of the 2020 election. He hosted a rally outside the Capitol on January 6, 2021, that fed the subsequent riot.

President Trump’s inner circle pleaded with him to break ties with Alexander and push him out. President Trump refused.

One accuser, Aidan Duncan, said that Alexander asked him for nude pictures in 2017 when Duncan was 15. The then-32-year-old Alexander told Duncan that as long as he was silent about their interactions, he’d introduce the teen to his far-right network.

Alexander publicly apologized for asking teenage boys and young men for sexually explicit images.

#8. George Nader

Nader was an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential transition team. He was a frequent visitor to the White House during President Donald Trump’s first year in office.

He was sentenced in June 2020 to 10 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release for transporting a child into the country for sex and possessing child pornography.

Nader had been investigated and convicted of similar conduct in the past. In 1991, after being convicted of transporting child pornography in Alexandria, he was given a six-month sentence.

In 2003, he was sentenced to a year in prison in the Czech Republic for soliciting underage boys.

#9. Roy Cohn

Roy Cohn was Donald Trump’s attorney from 1973 to 1985.

Trump met him in 1973 in a Manhattan nightclub. The two became friends, allies, business associates. Some say Cohn was Trump’s mentor, or even his surrogate father.

Cohn was a gay pedophile who abused boys on both sides of the Atlantic.

Roy Cohn had connections to the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring in London, a pedophile network that overlapped with abuse rings in the US.

The Kincora Boys’ Home was in Belfast, Northern Ireland and was the scene of serious organized child sexual abuse, causing a scandal and attempted cover-up in 1980.

One of the boys Cohn abused was Richard Kerr from the Kincora Boys’ Home. Cohn selected Kerr from the home and took him to Venice for sexual abuse in 1977.

Richard Kerr stated that “Cohn didn’t talk too much and just took me up to the room and we had an encounter. I believe that I was there three or four days.”

Roy Cohn died from AIDS in 1986.

#10. Andy Lucchesi

Former male model Andy Lucchesi (who now runs the multi-million dollar company Locke Management) told the Daily Beast that he helped Trump organize parties at the Plaza Hotel in the 1990’s. He described himself as one of the men who “wrangled” young models for the parties.

Trump owned the Plaza Hotel and used to rent out suites “so older rich men could meet – and have sex with – teen models as young as 15” said two attendees.

“Trump would invite young models so that they could meet his affluent, older friends — who could give them major career boosts.”

A photographer that attended the parties said “Trump was in and out. He’d wander off with a couple girls. I saw him. He was getting laid like crazy. Trump was at the heart of it. He loved the attention and in private, he was a total fucking beast.”

Andy Lucchesi told the Daily Beast “Trump would never partake of the cocaine, but more than often indulged in sex. A lot of girls, 14, look 24. That’s as juicy as I can get.”

Lucchesi added “I never asked how old they were; I just partook. I did partake in activities that would be considered controversial.”

#11. Ted Nugent

Nugent has partied at the White House and has played the National Anthem and spoken at several Trump rallies.

Trump called him out on stage at one event “Where’s that Ted Nugent? Well, there he is. Ted, we’re so glad you’re here. You know you’re a handsome devil.”

And because of that interaction, the title of Nugent’s next album became “Handsome Devil.”

Ted Nugent is accused of having sex with a 12-year-old, written a song about raping a 13-year-old and adopted a 17-year-old so that he could have sex with her.

Nugent had the novel idea of becoming legal guardian to a 17-year-old girl, so that they could have sex without her parents having legal recourse.

“I guess they figured better Ted Nugent than some drug-infested punk in high school” he told VH1 years later.

Nugent also claims in a documentary to have had several relationships with young girls, and seems to brag about gaining their parents’ approval.

In an episode of the VH1 show “Behind the Music” Ted admits to a number of liaisons with underage girls.

Singer Courtney Love confessed that she was 12 and a half years old when she performed oral sex on Nugent backstage at a show.

JAILBAIT (Song by Ted Nugent)

Well, I don’t care if you’re just 13

You look too good to be true
I just know that you’re probably clean…
Jailbait you look fine, fine, fine…
It’s quite alright, I asked your mama

Wait a minute, officer
Don’t put those handcuffs on me
Put them on her, and I’ll share her with you.

#12. Tim Nolan

Tim Nolan pleaded guilty to 21 counts involving human trafficking, trading heroin for sex with women – some of them tenants, some of them underage. There were 19 victims over a 10-year span.

One of the reasons Nolan’s story drew national attention was because of his role in the Trump presidential campaign. Nolan served as a Trump-supporting delegate in April 2016 at the Kentucky Republican Convention. He was also the county chairman of Trump’s campaign.

After the arrest Team Trump stated that Nolan was not the county chairman, just an enthusiastic volunteer.

Nolan told The Cincinnati Enquirer, “I was clearly chairman for the caucus. I guess because of my current difficulties, they want to put some distance from me.”

Nolan agreed to serve 20 years as a result of the plea agreement.

#13. Ralph Shortey

Trump’s Oklahoma campaign chair was charged with several felonies, including engaging in child prostitution, after police found him in a hotel room with a 17-year-old male.

Shortey plead guilty to a charge of child sex trafficking in exchange for U.S. prosecutors’ dropping three child pornography charges against him. The child pornography was of both males and females.

Shortey faces a minimum of 10 years in prison on the child sex trafficking charge.

#14. Adam Hageman

A Trump Commerce Department official and Turning Point USA ex-employee was sentenced to 5.5 years in prison for child pornography possession

Adam Hageman, 25 shared a child pornography video and commenting several times on sexually abusing chil*ren as captured in graphic messages in an online chat.

In the memo, prosecutors accused Hageman of encouraging people in an online group to rape chil*ren and soliciting group members to share chil* pornography.

Hageman indicated that his preference was chil*ren aged 12 to 16 and said that the youngest person he had sex with was 15 years old.

#15. Ruben Verastigui

A staffer who helped design social media ads for Donald Trump’s re-election campaign was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for receiving hundreds of child sexual abuse materials, including videos of babies being raped.

“Verastigui discussed in great detail how much he enjoyed seeing children getting rap*d and kill*d.” prosecutors said.

#16. William Riddleberger

Moving to the irony category, people that visited the Trump Dating website were greeted with images of Jodi and William Barrett Riddleberger.

The dating site aims to match fellow Trump supporters.

The married couple are conservative activists involved in a Tea Party-inspired political action committee.

It turns out that William Riddleberger was convicted in 1995 of indecent liberties with a child stemming from filming sex with a 15-year-old girl. He was then 25.

His image has been removed from the website.
