The shock news yesterday, of course was the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, associate of the late Jeffrey Epstein. She’s essentially been charged with everything that Epstein was charged with before he was strangled to death in his jail cell last year in Lower Manhattan.
Perhaps the bigger shock was that she was arrested in the US, after many mainstream outlets had reported less than two weeks ago that she was living in the plush apartment of a rich friend near the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
Why would the former associate of sex trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein leave the protection of France’s extradition laws? Did she voluntarily allow herself to be arrested in the United States? If so, she presumably doesn’t believe the six felony charges will stick, having purchased her 150+-acre estate in New Hampshire where she was arrested for $1 million cash last December.
Many are voicing the opinion that Ghislaine was more important to the compromise operation being run by Epstein than Epstein, himself. Both Ghislaine and Epstein were allegedly CIA/MOSSAD assets via her father’s connections.
Ghislaine’s father was Czech-born British newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, who received a state funeral in Israel, after he was found floating face down the Atlantic ocean off the coast of the Canary Islands in 1991. Robert Maxwell is suspected of having been a triple agent, working for Soviet intelligence, MI6 and MOSSAD.
The news conference Thursday announcing Ghislaine’s arrest was led by Acting US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Audrey Strauss. Strauss has just taken over the position from Geoffrey Berman, who was fired by Trump on June 19th after his office had reportedly blocked progress on the SDNY’s cases against the Clinton Foundation, Jeffrey Epstein, Anthony Weiner and others.
