After six days of deliberation, longtime gal pal of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein, and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty of federal sex trafficking charges. Maxwell was accused of grooming teenagers and then trafficking them for the now-deceased Epstein. The jury, which was made up of six men and six women has found her guilty of five of the six federal counts. Maxwell now faces up to 65 years in prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
Ghislaine had a close relationship with Bill Clinton who traveled on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet the Lolita Express multiple times with the billionaire pedophile.
She was also a guest at Chelsea’s wedding:
Bill also had a close relationship with serial sex abuser and pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein who kept a portrait of Bill Clinton wearing red high heels and Monica Lewinski’s famous “blue dress” hung in his NYC mansion:
Flight logs reviewed by Fox News show former President Bill Clinton took 26 trips aboard Epstein’s Boeing 727 jet, more than double the 11 flights previously known.
Epstein’s jet was reportedly set up with a bed where guests had group sex with young girls.
“A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable — facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of children,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement following the verdict. “I want to commend the bravery of the girls — now grown women — who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case, and today’s result, possible.”
“This Office will always stand with victims, will always follow the facts wherever they lead, and will always fight to ensure that no one, no matter how powerful and well connected, is above the law,” Williams added.
“I am so relieved and grateful that the jury recognized the pattern of predatory behavior that Maxwell engaged in for years and found her guilty of these crimes,” said Annie Farmer, one of four accusers who testified against Maxwell. “I hope that this verdict brings solace to all who need it … even those with great power and privilege will be held accountable when they sexually abuse and exploit the young.”
From BBC- Maxwell has been convicted of five out of six federal charges, including sex trafficking of a minor.
The trafficking sentence, the most serious one the British socialite faced, carries a sentence of 40 years in prison.
Maxwell showed no emotion in court as the judge spoke. After the verdict was read, she poured herself a glass of water and took two sips.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s legal troubles are not over. She still faces perjury charges for allegedly lying under oath about her role in Jeffrey Epstein’s abuses.
The perjury charges stem from accusations that she lied during a 2016 deposition for a lawsuit filed against Epstein by one of the accusers, Virginia Giuffre.Advertisement
During the deposition, Maxwell repeatedly said she was largely unaware of Epstein’s abuses. Federal prosecutors accused her of making “false declarations”.
While the charges were originally included in an indictment against Maxwell released after she was arrested in July 2020, in April Judge Alison Nathan granted a request from Maxwell’s attorneys to separate the charges from the rest of the counts.
The perjury charges each carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Giuffre’s 2015 lawsuit against Maxwell alleged that Maxwell recruited her when she was still a teenager and of trafficking her for sexual abuse between 1999 and 2002.
On July 6, 2020, Florida billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of the sex trafficking of minors.
On Saturday, August 10, 2019, at approximately 6:30 a.m., inmate Jeffrey Edward Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell in the Special Housing Unit from an apparent suicide at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York, New York.
Attorney General Barr released a statement in which he said he was “appalled” to learn about Epstein’s suicide:
“I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General, who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
Months before Epstein’s arrest, the media was caught covering up the pedophile’s high-profile scandal that involved a lot of heavy hitters on the left:
ABC News admitted to sitting on an explosive interview that would have shined a light on Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton’s involvement with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. This morning, James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, posted a leaked video of anchor Amy Robach on a hot mic, explaining how network higher-ups killed the story three years ago, much to her dismay.
