Arrested today by the FBI. Does that mean that we finally get to the bottom of this sordid affair that has potential links to all sorts of famous and powerful people from Donald Trump to Bill Clinton to Ehud Barak to Prince Andrew to Bill Richardson to George Mitchell to Alan Dershowitz etc. etc. etc. or does it mean she's going to be murdered in prison like Jeffrey?

I thought she was supposed to be hiding out in France, whence she was immune from extradition?

Damn, her handlers must be pissed.

My money's on the latter, but the greater the body count, the harder it is to politely ignore the stench.

My thought on Epstein has always tended towards intelligence--CIA, Mossad, MI6--there's a reason for collecting people and keeping them under your thumb. Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob, Naomi Campbell, Kurt Cobain's wife are other links. Today's jet setters--the kind that dispose of their loose ends.

The phrase "your life isn't worth a plug nickle" was designed for someone in Ms. Maxwell's position.

I give her one month of animation, tops.

#4--I think it's curious that the head of SDNY Geoffrey Berman gets ousted right before Maxwell's arrest. Not to forget also that Bill Barr's father is linked to Epstein as well. That Bill Barr's father was OSS (the forerunner to the CIA). That one of Azar's excuses that helped get Epstein off years ago in Florida that Epstein 'was intelligence'.

I've also heard that Maxwell might end up in the same facility as Epstein. So yeah.......I don't how fast she can spill the beans but it probably won't be fast enough.

>5 lriley: The question is, will spilling the beans even suffice to save her hyoid bone neck? They might well proceed anyhow, pour encourager les autres.

Alan Dershowitz hasn’t been seen at his favorite nude beach in months
Sara Nathan | July 6, 2020

...Local gossips have been speculating that he’s keeping a low profile because he’s wrapped up in the exploding Jeffrey Epstein scandal. (He’s countersuing Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre, who claims she was forced to sleep with Dershowitz while she was being kept as a sex slave by Epstein. Dershowitz strongly denies the allegations.)...

Fox News says it 'mistakenly' cropped Trump out of photo featuring Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Dershowitz is an attention seeker and a creep. A defender of Trump another narcissistic attention seeker and creep. He really sees nothing wrong about what Epstein and Maxwell were doing and played a part in the deal that basically got Epstein off scot free many years ago in Florida. This idea that he was a liberal or left is just horseshit. He conditions his vote on American Israeli policy--one that favors the likes of Netanyahu. Dershowitz is very much linked to Epstein's island.

As for American politicians--Trump is linked. Bill Clinton is linked. Bill Richardson is linked. George Mitchell is linked. Not small names. Richardson--congressman and former New Mexico governor. I take no pleasure in Mitchell--Senator from Maine--one of the main actors in the Good Friday Agreement that more than less put an end to the violence in Northern Ireland. I wish his legacy would rest on that but his legacy doesn't look so good right now.

Maxwell is in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Epstein was in a correctional center in lower Manhattan when he died. Their debating whether or not she should have a cellmate and worried that other inmates might target her.

I wonder whatever happened to protective custody. Really have eyes on her cell all the time so that she doesn't harm herself or others don't harm her. It's important that she testifies---that we don't go through this nonsense like we did with Epstein last time around. The inconvenient seem to die a little too frequently in American jails.

From the guy who thinks that Statutory Rape is an outdated concept and that 15 year olds should be prey for old satyrs like himself:

Fact: Donald Trump was introduced to Melania Knauss (Now @FLOTUS) by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

One of the MANY reasons @realDonaldTrump wished a serial rapist and sex trafficker of underage girls "well" from the White House.

This will come out during Gm's trial.

#13--Donald ran his own modelling agency for quite a while and is linked to Epstein like Jean Luc Brunel or Paolo Zampolli. Let's say Epstein and Maxwell were Mossad agents--Maxwell's father certainly was. Think about all the illicit shit that can happen out of that. Epstein apparently taped everything. That's all blackmail and control material. If a deal were made with Maxwell and she talked she could potentially turn the world upside down.

One of the most under reported stories of 2020.

It goes much, much further than has been reported.

#15--pretty sure there is a lot there but we're also in the realm of conspiracy theory. If it's Mossad behind Epstein and Maxwell what do you do with that? Israel is a major ally though a right wing apartheid like regime with deep ties to both of our political parties. Maxwell is also linked to more than just Donald and Melania--she and Epstein were also very much linked to Bill Clinton.

I am wondering whether TRUMP will pardon her, or otherwise use his power or connections on her behalf, before his term is up.

(Don't recall if Epstein's earlier problem was in time of Clinton, only that it was a FL official who helped him.)

>17 margd: Even if he pardons Maxwell, she is probably on the hook for charges against her by the state of New York, for which a federal pardon offers no safe harbour.

Epstein's notoriously light plea deal in Florida was handled by Alex Acosta, who happened to be Trump's Secretary of Labor until he was forced to resign last year over the scandal.

Acosta was originally appointed as United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida by George W. Bush, but Acosta's tenure in this position continued under Barack Obama, ending June 5 of 2009.

#18--Alex Acosta when asked said that he was told to 'back off' and that Epstein 'was intelligence' and also was 'above his (Acosta's) pay grade'. He did not mention any name or names of who was telling him such---he went on to say that he would be 'breaking DOJ rules' if he did.

Epstein also once set up this party for Donald in which there were 28 girls and Epstein and Trump were the only males. Knowing Epstein's predilections you'd have to think that a lot of them were underage.

If you're running an intelligence operation for a foreign govt. (actually even the United States govt.) using young women--models as your cover legitimacy but with the intention of getting blackmail material on any number of important people whether they be heads of state, government officials, elected politicians, billionaires and plutocrats, heads of industries, banks or corporations, movie or sports stars, prominent legal people, even famous scientists--other kinds of corruption are going to be part of it too whether it's underaged children or teenagers, pornography, prostitution or whatever. When you get your hooks into somebody you want to make it look as bad as possible. Then you own them or the intelligence agency you work for owns them.

Larry Summers by the way--a favorite of both Clinton and Obama and someone who has come out against any stimulus for ordinary United States citizens is another who was a conduit for Epstein to make inroads with Harvard and MIT scientists is very closely linked to Epstein. Hopefully Biden does not give him a job.

Judge Rejects Ghislaine Maxwell’s $28.5 Million Bail Proposal
Ed Shanahan | Dec. 28, 2020

The British socialite, charged with assisting Jeffrey Epstein in his abuse of girls, had called jail conditions “intolerable.” Prosecutors said she has her own shower, TV and computers...

...federal prosecutors argued in court filings opposing her latest request that she remained “an extreme flight risk” and should stay in jail. The judge who issued the ruling on Monday, Alison J. Nathan of Federal District Court in Manhattan, concurred.

...Ms. Maxwell, 59, faces six counts that include transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and perjury. She has pleaded not guilty and is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center, a federal jail in Brooklyn. If convicted, prosecutors have said, she could be sentenced to up to 35 years in prison...
