Some are painting her as a victim of Epstein (looking at you, Mr. Bloomberg), but in my mind she may have been the leader of the gang. After all, her father was a spymaster, and she probably has all of Robert Maxwell’s contacts in place, perfect for a spying and blackmail ring.
Much talk of corruption. Prosecutor and judge both suspect, in my opinion.
Biden has nominated US District Judge Alison J. Nathan for a promotion to the federal level very soon….
She has also gone on record claiming that certain details of the case are too ‘impure and sensational’ for the public to hear.
Maybe I’m just a conspiracy theorist, but this trial looks to be very controlled, probably to protect Jeffrey Epstein’s more sensational and well-known clients. I’m fairly confident that none of them will be touched in any significant way by this trial. Maxwell may be convicted of something, but you can bet that none of her famous friends will be.
Prosecutors in Manhattan federal court on Monday began laying out their case against the 59-year-old British socialite, painting her as Epstein’s “partner in crime” and charging that she was “essential” in his scheme to prey on children.
“The defendant and Epstein lured their victims with the promise of a brighter future — only to sexually exploit them and forever change their lives,” Assistant US Attorney Lara Pomerantz told jurors.
Maxwell — who has been locked up since her July 2020 arrest — stands accused of helping Epstein to “recruit, groom and ultimately abuse” girls as young as 14, according to the indictment against her.
. . .
The six counts she faces — including sex-trafficking of minors — stem from the allegations of four women who say they were abused by Epstein and Maxwell between 1994 and 2004 when they were teenagers.
Prosecutors allege that Maxwell, the youngest child of late publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, groomed the teens knowing they would be preyed on by her ex-boyfriend and best buddy — and even took part in the abuse.
