A former professional basketball player and Democrat congressman from Maryland denounced convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, recently charged in a sex trafficking conspiracy, after video surfaced of him arriving at a 1992 party at Mar-a-Lago with Epstein and an unidentified woman.
“I attended an NFL themed party put on by Mar-a-Lago in Nov. 1992 to promote the club in which the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins cheerleaders were invited, along with hundreds of other guests,” former congressman Tom McMillen told The Rundown. “The Bills were playing the Dolphins the next day. I attended with my date. I used to see Trump and Epstein at social events but haven’t seen or talked to Epstein in 20 years. I’m appalled by the accusations against him. I met him through a New York friend who solicited Epstein to contribute to my political campaign.”
Wednesday morning, MSNBC attempted to attach President Trump to Epstein over a video of Epstein showing up to a party at Mar-a-Lago, then Trump’s private residence, in 1992. Epstein attended the event with two other people – both of whom MSNBC ignored in its coverage, given that the piece was meant solely to disparage Trump.
One of the two other people was McMillen, a former professional basketball player for the Buffalo Braves (an expansion franchise that ended up failing after a few seasons), the Atlanta Hawks, the New York Knicks, and the Washington Bullets. He was also a Rhodes Scholar who served as a Maryland Congressman from 1987 to 1993.
McMillan said that Epstein donated $1000 to his campaign in 1990, and $2,000 in 1992.
Epstein was known as a high-roller and socialite who ran in elite circles with wealthy people and politicians. The video, used to impugn Trump’s character by MSNBC – and which said that Epstein “frequented” Mar-a-Lago – was taken for an NBC special about the then-bachelor. The party took place 15 years before Epstein was convicted on state charges of soliciting an underage prostitute in 2007.
“I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Trump said of Epstein last week. “I was not a fan.”
Trump added that he had not spoken to Epstein in 15 years.
