She was found guilty by a jury today on five out of six counts relating to sex trafficking after a mammoth, month-long trial in a New York City court.

The British socialite was accused of being financier Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirator. She denied all charges.

During the trial, the government alleged: “Ghislaine Maxwell made her own choices. She committed crimes hand in hand with Jeffrey Epstein. She was a grown woman who knew exactly what she was doing.”

The charges alleged the sexual exploitation of girls as young as 14.

According to ABC News: ”As the verdict was read, Maxwell appeared to show little reaction behind a black mask. She stood with her hands folded as the jury filed out, and glanced at her siblings as she herself was led from the courtroom.

During the trial, prosecutors called 24 witnesses to give jurors a picture of life inside Epstein’s homes — a subject of public fascination and speculation ever since his 2006 arrest in Florida in a child sex case.“

There were four women in court who testified about abuse as teenagers in the 1990s and early 2000s at Epstein’s homes in Florida, New York and New Mexico. One incident occurred in Maxwell’s townhome in London.

Jurors deliberated for five days and the daughter of fraudulent media baron Robert Maxwell faces a sentence of many years in prison.

The women who spent years fighting in courts to hold the multimillionaire Maxwell accountable have spent decades fighting for justice.

The guilty verdicts in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial represent the culmination of prolonged and dramatic disgrace for a woman who once roamed the world amid lavish homes.

As well, she networked with actors, billionaires, politicians and royals.

Moreover, the Manhattan courtroom verdict could also herald the beginning of a new chapter in the #MeToo movement.

Watch this space: Maxwell quoted in an interview in The Philadelphia Daily News, early 1990s.



Sex offenders cannot assume they will not be prosecuted and they must now the possibility of being dragged to court and jailed for life.

The jury found the Oxford-educated scion of a disgraced publishing dynasty on five of six counts. It finally represents an emphatic decision played out over weeks in a New York City court room.


Furthermore, the next target is Queen Elizabeth’s son Prince Andrew, the Duke of York. His civil case is before another New York court on January 4.

Transcript: The Epic Fall of Ghislaine Maxwell: The Prince and the Pervert Podcast


A global criminal conspiracy, a jailed socialite and a billionaire, who may or may not have been murdered. Welcome to the world of the Jeffrey Epstein, the Prince and the Pervert Podcast.
Journalists Lisa and Jen bring you the ultimate deep dive.


My soul yearned for justice for years,
and today the jury gave me just that. I will remember this day, always having lived with the horrors of Maxwell’s abuse. My heart goes out to the many other girls and young women who suffered at her hands and whose life she destroyed. I hope that today is not the end, but rather another step in justice being served. Maxwell did not act alone. Others must be held accountable. I have faith that they will be.

Maxwell Found Guilty
Hello, My name is Lisa.

19
00:00:59,170 –> 00:01:01,930
Welcome to the Prince and the pervert podcast.

20
00:01:01,940 –> 00:01:06,630
Joining me today on this amazing day is my co host,

21
00:01:06,630 –> 00:01:07,600
Jen Tarran

22
00:01:07,600 –> 00:01:13,920
and we are both journalists who’ve been following the Jeffrey Epstein criminal conspiracy for more than two years.

23
00:01:13,930 –> 00:01:14,620
Hello,

24
00:01:14,620 –> 00:01:15,150
Jen.

25
00:01:15,740 –> 00:01:17,490
I’m sorry if I sound a bit tired.

26
00:01:17,500 –> 00:01:22,850
Of course I did the full overnight shift and just got into bed when Lisa rang to say,

27
00:01:22,860 –> 00:01:24,210
I’ve just had the tip off.

28
00:01:24,220 –> 00:01:25,820
The jury is coming back in.

29
00:01:25,830 –> 00:01:27,180
It was quite unexpected.

30
00:01:27,180 –> 00:01:28,610
It’s been a long process,

31
00:01:28,610 –> 00:01:30,760
but they wanted to make sure they got it right.

32
00:01:31,040 –> 00:01:41,990
Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty of sex trafficking for Jeffrey Epstein and from the throne room at Buckingham Palace to being found guilty of sex trafficking.

33
00:01:42,000 –> 00:01:42,410
Jan.

34
00:01:42,410 –> 00:01:46,850
It’s certainly been an epic fall for the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

35
00:01:47,340 –> 00:01:53,250
She was found guilty on five of the six charges that she faced trial for.

36
00:01:53,740 –> 00:01:54,760
It’s a brilliant,

37
00:01:54,770 –> 00:01:56,160
brilliant result.

38
00:01:56,170 –> 00:01:57,790
Absolutely it is.

39
00:01:57,790 –> 00:01:59,500
But it’s just the beginning.

40
00:01:59,500 –> 00:02:05,020
We have Prince Andrew in the spotlight early next month in his civil case with Virginia Giuffre,

41
00:02:05,110 –> 00:02:07,670
who is one of the whistleblowers in this case.

42
00:02:07,720 –> 00:02:08,120
Now,

43
00:02:08,130 –> 00:02:09,530
as part of this trial,

44
00:02:09,540 –> 00:02:18,550
none of the witnesses for the government were offered any plea deals to those who came forward for the prosecution as witnesses.

45
00:02:18,700 –> 00:02:21,880
I’m not saying there will be extra charges,

46
00:02:22,060 –> 00:02:24,770
but we assume there will be well.

47
00:02:24,770 –> 00:02:31,430
Virginia said in her statement that she is hopeful justice will be done in the future because don’t forget,

48
00:02:31,440 –> 00:02:32,450
there’s Prince Andrew.

49
00:02:32,460 –> 00:02:36,970
There’s also a civil case of Virginia has brought against Alan Dershowitz,

50
00:02:36,980 –> 00:02:38,460
the Harvard law professor.

51
00:02:39,140 –> 00:02:40,660
This is more than a win.

52
00:02:41,340 –> 00:02:48,980
This is confirmation and validation of these survivor stories of what they went through over the years,

53
00:02:48,990 –> 00:02:50,790
when people call them fantasies.

54
00:02:50,820 –> 00:02:56,750
When people dismiss them as money grubbing whatever which was aligned the defence took,

55
00:02:56,750 –> 00:02:57,720
that was for sure.

56
00:02:57,840 –> 00:02:59,710
It’s given them validation.

Maxwell Found Guilty:

57
00:02:59,720 –> 00:03:02,190
These things did happen to them.

58
00:03:02,440 –> 00:03:07,100
I have a statement here from the Department of Justice from the Southern District of New York,

59
00:03:07,110 –> 00:03:10,980
and we have U S attorney Damien Williams on the verdict,

60
00:03:10,990 –> 00:03:11,630
he said.

61
00:03:11,640 –> 00:03:17,310
A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable.

62
00:03:17,420 –> 00:03:21,360
Facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of Children,

63
00:03:21,360 –> 00:03:25,330
crimes that she committed with her longtime partner and co conspirator,

64
00:03:25,330 –> 00:03:26,470
Jeffrey Epstein.

65
00:03:26,480 –> 00:03:29,680
The road to justice has been far too long now,

66
00:03:29,680 –> 00:03:30,000
Jen.

67
00:03:30,000 –> 00:03:39,460
That’s what you were saying because some of these girls were called prostitutes by their own government back in the days of Epstein’s plea deal in 2000 and eight.

68
00:03:39,840 –> 00:03:40,600
That’s right.

69
00:03:40,610 –> 00:03:42,760
They’ve had a formal apology since,

70
00:03:42,770 –> 00:03:48,010
but that word has been used in headlines around the world now,

71
00:03:48,010 –> 00:03:51,430
Damien Williams says I want to commend the bravery of the girls,

72
00:03:51,440 –> 00:03:55,750
now grown women who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom.

73
00:03:55,760 –> 00:03:59,670
Now I cannot imagine what they went through on that stand,

74
00:03:59,680 –> 00:04:05,020
considering there were two particular lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell who absolutely hammered them.

Maxwell Found Guilty:

75
00:04:05,030 –> 00:04:06,590
I know it was their job,

76
00:04:06,600 –> 00:04:09,130
but it was an extremely poor taste.

77
00:04:09,230 –> 00:04:10,270
Interestingly,

78
00:04:10,270 –> 00:04:10,600
Jen,

79
00:04:10,600 –> 00:04:14,370
those two lawyers had nothing to say for themselves this afternoon,

80
00:04:14,620 –> 00:04:19,810
and those two lawyers consistently docks these victims.

81
00:04:19,820 –> 00:04:21,650
They used real names and,

82
00:04:21,650 –> 00:04:22,420
in one case,

83
00:04:22,420 –> 00:04:24,610
one of Ghislaine’s legal team.

84
00:04:24,610 –> 00:04:27,040
Jeffrey Pagilucia to or Pag,

85
00:04:27,040 –> 00:04:28,560
as I prefer to call him,

86
00:04:28,640 –> 00:04:31,510
was warned about using a real name,

87
00:04:31,520 –> 00:04:36,160
and the next sentence out of his mouth was yet another real name.

88
00:04:36,170 –> 00:04:41,750
He didn’t show any respect to these women or the witnesses who were using a pseudonym.

89
00:04:42,140 –> 00:04:42,400
Yes,

90
00:04:42,400 –> 00:04:44,210
you’re bringing up an excellent point there,

91
00:04:44,210 –> 00:04:44,610
Jen,

92
00:04:44,620 –> 00:04:48,660
because I think society has moved ahead of some people in the legal profession.

93
00:04:48,670 –> 00:04:50,800
Another of Ghislaine’s lawyers,

94
00:04:50,810 –> 00:04:51,440
Laura Meningher ,

95
00:04:51,440 –> 00:04:51,890
injure.

96
00:04:51,900 –> 00:05:03,490
She was described to the first survivor Jane as a C bomb because she hammered and hammered and hammered her so they’ll be back.

97
00:05:03,490 –> 00:05:06,750
He has been with Ghislaine for a very long time,

98
00:05:07,240 –> 00:05:08,420
as has Manager.

99
00:05:08,430 –> 00:05:18,010
They both were involved in the Civil Defamation suit that Virginia Giuffre A brought against Maxwell back in 2000 and 15.

100
00:05:18,020 –> 00:05:19,560
Maxwell settled well.

101
00:05:19,560 –> 00:05:21,330
I’m glad they’ve shut up for once.

Maxwell Found Guilty:

102
00:05:21,570 –> 00:05:22,960
It’s about time,

103
00:05:23,040 –> 00:05:24,980
so they look quite disappointed,

104
00:05:24,980 –> 00:05:27,960
according to Josie Ensor of The Telegraph.

105
00:05:28,840 –> 00:05:29,120
Well,

106
00:05:29,120 –> 00:05:32,030
so did Maxwell when the jury was brought back in.

107
00:05:32,040 –> 00:05:36,280
And I’m compiling what happened in the courtroom from various sources,

108
00:05:36,290 –> 00:05:38,080
including Josie Julie K.

109
00:05:38,080 –> 00:05:38,870
Brown,

110
00:05:38,880 –> 00:05:41,490
the wonderful Matthew from Inner City Press as well.

111
00:05:41,500 –> 00:05:43,560
When the jury filed in,

112
00:05:43,570 –> 00:05:46,890
Maxwell did not look at them when they had to stand up.

113
00:05:46,890 –> 00:05:48,080
She was a bit shaky.

114
00:05:48,090 –> 00:05:49,660
She was sipping on water,

115
00:05:49,740 –> 00:05:50,490
and then,

116
00:05:50,500 –> 00:05:53,120
when the verdict was finally read out,

117
00:05:53,130 –> 00:05:53,980
she didn’t cry.

118
00:05:53,980 –> 00:05:54,990
There were no tears,

119
00:05:54,990 –> 00:05:57,470
but she slumped in her seat,

120
00:05:57,530 –> 00:05:59,040
and then Bobby Sternheim.

121
00:05:59,110 –> 00:06:04,710
One of her other long term lawyers put an arm around her shoulder as she was sent out the room.

122
00:06:04,720 –> 00:06:07,590
I’ve also heard that Bobby didn’t look too good.

123
00:06:07,600 –> 00:06:09,860
Neither did Leah Saffian,

124
00:06:09,940 –> 00:06:13,850
who isn’t one of the legal defence team.

125
00:06:13,860 –> 00:06:16,360
It was there every day.

126
00:06:16,370 –> 00:06:25,500
Now she was one of the lawyers who helped Ghislaine’s brothers when they were in all that financial trouble in the UK following their father’s fraudulent activities.

127
00:06:25,510 –> 00:06:27,550
Now this is all on our website,

128
00:06:27,740 –> 00:06:29,650
and if it’s the first time you’ve listened,

129
00:06:29,650 –> 00:06:32,740
welcome Jeffrey Epstein podcast dot com.

130
00:06:32,930 –> 00:06:47,720
It’s all there certainly is now Leah Saffian and was also involved in setting up that Come and Get Me or Come and Find Me photo at the in and out Burger Joint in LA just after Jeffrey Epstein died in custody.

131
00:06:47,730 –> 00:06:48,060
Yes,

132
00:06:48,060 –> 00:06:48,710
that’s right.

133
00:06:48,710 –> 00:06:53,860
Dylan was in that photo at In and Out Burger with a book about spying in the CIA.

134
00:06:53,870 –> 00:06:56,240
They think they’re so much smarter than everyone else,

135
00:06:56,240 –> 00:06:56,850
don’t they?

136
00:06:57,140 –> 00:07:01,010
There’s been a lot of conjecture about why Leah is in there.

137
00:07:01,020 –> 00:07:13,960
She was even there on the charging Saturday when the government and the defence teams joined with the judge to hammer out the charge sheet that will be read to the jury Before they went into deliberations.

138
00:07:14,640 –> 00:07:16,880
She was constantly on her phone.

139
00:07:16,890 –> 00:07:19,830
She was sitting with the defence on her phone.

140
00:07:19,920 –> 00:07:23,430
She hadn’t been docketed as part of her defence team,

141
00:07:23,430 –> 00:07:26,760
so there are a lot of questions about why she was there,

142
00:07:26,770 –> 00:07:28,900
why she was so close to Ghislaine,

143
00:07:28,910 –> 00:07:34,760
why she was showing her phone to Ghislaine and other family members during the trial.

144
00:07:35,440 –> 00:07:45,220
It’s my belief that she was looking at the social media trying to gauge the perception out there and that she is already working on the appeal.

145
00:07:45,230 –> 00:07:51,360
And I believe it will centre that the jury weren’t given correct instructions by the judge,

146
00:07:51,370 –> 00:07:56,900
which will go down rather well with Judge Nathan and also media interference.

147
00:07:56,910 –> 00:07:58,610
Interesting that you say that,

148
00:07:58,610 –> 00:07:58,820
Jen,

149
00:07:58,820 –> 00:08:01,620
because there was a statement by Maxwell’s family.

150
00:08:01,630 –> 00:08:04,050
We believe firmly in our sister’s innocence,

151
00:08:04,050 –> 00:08:06,110
and we are very disappointed with the verdict.

152
00:08:06,120 –> 00:08:08,220
We have already started the appeal tonight,

153
00:08:08,220 –> 00:08:11,600
and we believe that she will ultimately be vindicated.

154
00:08:11,610 –> 00:08:12,860
Oh bugger off,

155
00:08:13,040 –> 00:08:13,990
insufferable.

156
00:08:13,990 –> 00:08:15,650
That is so insufferable.

157
00:08:15,740 –> 00:08:17,950
But it’s also imperious as well.

158
00:08:17,960 –> 00:08:19,040
Absolutely,

159
00:08:19,050 –> 00:08:19,550
really.

160
00:08:19,940 –> 00:08:22,060
Oh triggers my anger.

161
00:08:22,070 –> 00:08:22,790
Okay,

162
00:08:22,800 –> 00:08:24,220
now the verdict.

163
00:08:24,230 –> 00:08:26,550
She was found guilty on Count one,

164
00:08:26,550 –> 00:08:37,960
which was conspiracy to entice individuals under the age of 17 to travel in interstate commerce with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity.

165
00:08:38,340 –> 00:08:38,960
Guilty,

166
00:08:39,940 –> 00:08:52,560
I’m going to skip to count three conspiracy to transport individuals under the age of 17 to travel in interstate commerce with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity.

167
00:08:53,140 –> 00:08:59,300
Guilty count for transportation of an individual under the age of 17.

168
00:08:59,360 –> 00:08:59,950
Jane.

169
00:08:59,960 –> 00:09:04,190
Only with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity.

170
00:09:04,430 –> 00:09:06,270
Guilty count.

171
00:09:06,270 –> 00:09:06,890
Five.

172
00:09:06,900 –> 00:09:11,960
Conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of individuals under the age of 18.

173
00:09:12,540 –> 00:09:14,000
Guilty count.

174
00:09:14,000 –> 00:09:14,630
Six.

175
00:09:14,840 –> 00:09:19,050
Sex trafficking of an individual under the age of 18.

176
00:09:19,080 –> 00:09:21,490
Caroline only guilty.

177
00:09:21,730 –> 00:09:23,170
Now that’s the big one.

178
00:09:23,440 –> 00:09:28,200
That count alone carries a maximum of 40 years in prison.

179
00:09:28,330 –> 00:09:32,340
The only count she wasn’t found guilty on was count,

180
00:09:32,350 –> 00:09:37,230
too enticement of an individual under the age of 17.

181
00:09:37,240 –> 00:09:38,020
Jane.

182
00:09:38,030 –> 00:09:46,360
Only now that was the first survivor to travel with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity.

183
00:09:47,140 –> 00:09:52,210
So even though count to she was found not guilty and that was to do with J,

184
00:09:52,220 –> 00:09:57,660
she was found guilty of the other count to do with just J.

185
00:09:58,040 –> 00:10:00,460
So Jane has been vindicated in this.

186
00:10:01,540 –> 00:10:09,050
Now the various news organisations have already hit saying anywhere between 30 years in jail to 50 years in jail.

187
00:10:09,060 –> 00:10:11,330
But we won’t know until sentencing,

188
00:10:11,340 –> 00:10:13,660
which could be three or four months time.

189
00:10:13,670 –> 00:10:14,650
We’re not sure yet,

190
00:10:15,740 –> 00:10:16,300
however,

191
00:10:16,300 –> 00:10:17,850
at the age of 60.

192
00:10:17,860 –> 00:10:21,650
Even a 20 year sentence equates to life,

193
00:10:22,140 –> 00:10:24,970
and she deserves it now.

194
00:10:24,970 –> 00:10:28,550
During the trial itself and the jury deliberations,

195
00:10:28,720 –> 00:10:32,260
there was a bit of cockiness coming from Dylan Maxwell’s defence team,

196
00:10:32,640 –> 00:10:37,320
especially when the jury started asking for transcripts from the pilots,

197
00:10:37,330 –> 00:10:39,580
FBI police officers and,

198
00:10:39,580 –> 00:10:39,980
of course,

199
00:10:39,980 –> 00:10:40,950
all the victims.

200
00:10:41,540 –> 00:10:51,530
They seemed to believe that that meant that the jury was questioning everything the survivors had said and what the government witnesses had said.

201
00:10:51,540 –> 00:10:53,340
But that didn’t mean that at all.

202
00:10:53,350 –> 00:10:55,760
That meant that the jury was doing their job.

203
00:10:56,240 –> 00:10:57,640
They were drilling down.

204
00:10:57,650 –> 00:11:07,320
They were talking it through because the last thing these people who sat through this horrendous court case would want is for the whole thing to be a mistrial.

205
00:11:07,330 –> 00:11:08,340
They did their job.

206
00:11:08,350 –> 00:11:09,530
They did it correctly.

207
00:11:09,770 –> 00:11:12,600
But you could tell even today the gallon.

208
00:11:12,600 –> 00:11:14,860
Maxwell’s team thought they had it in the bag.

209
00:11:15,440 –> 00:11:25,960
Leah Saffain was talking to an ABC American producer for about five minutes and then slid them over to talk to Gullane herself.

210
00:11:26,640 –> 00:11:29,230
That was about a minute or so conversation,

211
00:11:29,240 –> 00:11:38,050
but you could tell straight away they were trying to set up interviews because they honestly believe she’d get off different to Australia.

212
00:11:38,060 –> 00:11:40,080
I think they can still do interviews,

213
00:11:40,080 –> 00:11:41,150
even if you’re in prison.

214
00:11:41,150 –> 00:11:41,640
Gen.

215
00:11:41,650 –> 00:11:42,160
Yes,

216
00:11:42,160 –> 00:11:45,890
but I don’t think that was the style of interview they were setting up.

217
00:11:45,900 –> 00:11:46,420
No,

218
00:11:46,420 –> 00:11:46,940
they may have,

219
00:11:46,940 –> 00:11:48,300
perhaps wanted a hotel.

220
00:11:48,300 –> 00:11:48,870
Remember?

221
00:11:48,880 –> 00:11:52,220
They had a five star hotel picked for Ghislaine if she got bail.

222
00:11:52,360 –> 00:11:52,690
Oh,

223
00:11:52,690 –> 00:11:53,630
that’s right.

224
00:11:53,640 –> 00:11:54,700
They may go there.

225
00:11:54,710 –> 00:11:58,850
Would they go to Scott Borges and her estranged spouses mansion?

226
00:11:59,140 –> 00:11:59,650
Maybe.

227
00:12:00,040 –> 00:12:00,220
Well,

228
00:12:00,220 –> 00:12:01,420
that’s the other thing.

229
00:12:01,430 –> 00:12:05,230
How much has she spent so far on her defence?

230
00:12:05,410 –> 00:12:06,930
And then you’ve got the appeal.

231
00:12:06,940 –> 00:12:08,400
Now she and Scott got married,

232
00:12:08,400 –> 00:12:11,010
apparently in 2000 and 16.

233
00:12:11,020 –> 00:12:14,350
He has control of all her money in a family trust.

234
00:12:15,740 –> 00:12:17,210
The divorce is coming.

235
00:12:17,220 –> 00:12:22,150
I’m not quite sure what the breaking up the assets is like in America,

236
00:12:22,150 –> 00:12:23,770
but after five or six years,

237
00:12:23,770 –> 00:12:25,390
here it’s a half and half.

238
00:12:25,390 –> 00:12:26,600
Possibly more.

239
00:12:26,610 –> 00:12:28,520
If somebody is left with the kids,

240
00:12:28,520 –> 00:12:29,260
so to speak,

241
00:12:30,040 –> 00:12:31,700
he can walk away with half her money.

242
00:12:31,710 –> 00:12:33,710
She may not have cash left.

243
00:12:33,720 –> 00:12:34,060
Well,

244
00:12:34,060 –> 00:12:45,890
cash that we know of exactly because Epstein apparently gave her $30 million and we’ve been told her ex boyfriend Ted wait gave her $20 million when they broke up,

245
00:12:45,900 –> 00:12:49,060
and I’ve only seen accounting for 27 million.

246
00:12:49,640 –> 00:12:54,280
That was when I was going to say and board can walk off with half of it straight away.

247
00:12:54,280 –> 00:13:01,960
So she hasn’t got that much left for appeals unless Ian is going to fork out to keep that family surname clean.

248
00:13:03,040 –> 00:13:03,480
Oh,

249
00:13:03,480 –> 00:13:05,520
how the tables have turned to Jen.

250
00:13:05,860 –> 00:13:06,940
And in the past,

251
00:13:06,940 –> 00:13:09,550
the Maxwells have been found not guilty.

252
00:13:10,440 –> 00:13:12,360
This is a new development for them.

253
00:13:13,140 –> 00:13:14,460
They don’t know what to do.

254
00:13:14,940 –> 00:13:15,710
No,

255
00:13:15,720 –> 00:13:18,070
they’re probably licking their wounds tonight.

256
00:13:18,090 –> 00:13:19,410
I’ll give you some advice,

257
00:13:19,410 –> 00:13:19,730
guys.

258
00:13:19,730 –> 00:13:20,960
Get on with your life.

259
00:13:21,340 –> 00:13:26,560
Don’t get tied up in that Life is too short to get tied up in knots over these appeals.

260
00:13:27,540 –> 00:13:27,770
Now,

261
00:13:27,770 –> 00:13:28,470
of course,

262
00:13:28,480 –> 00:13:32,160
this would spell utter disaster for Prince Andrew.

263
00:13:32,220 –> 00:13:32,570
Oh,

264
00:13:32,580 –> 00:13:33,130
really,

265
00:13:33,130 –> 00:13:33,710
Jen.

266
00:13:33,720 –> 00:13:34,070
Oh,

267
00:13:34,080 –> 00:13:34,580
well,

268
00:13:34,590 –> 00:13:37,290
they’ve got a phone hook up on January four.

269
00:13:37,300 –> 00:13:37,760
Yes,

270
00:13:37,760 –> 00:13:39,950
and we will be following Prince Andrew.

271
00:13:39,960 –> 00:13:40,410
Yes,

272
00:13:40,410 –> 00:13:41,250
we will.

273
00:13:41,480 –> 00:13:43,160
And then there’s Dersh as well.

274
00:13:43,340 –> 00:13:43,610
Yes,

275
00:13:43,610 –> 00:13:44,490
Alan Dershowitz.

276
00:13:44,490 –> 00:13:47,920
He is Martha’s Vineyard’s number one nude volleyballer,

277
00:13:47,930 –> 00:13:49,880
but he was also Epstein’s lawyer,

278
00:13:49,890 –> 00:13:50,990
Trump’s lawyer,

279
00:13:51,170 –> 00:13:52,160
OJ’s lawyer.

280
00:13:52,370 –> 00:13:57,590
Now he’s already been on the BBC banging on about the verdict.

281
00:13:57,600 –> 00:14:01,010
He wouldn’t answer any questions about Ghislaine,

282
00:14:01,070 –> 00:14:04,200
but he used the time to attack Virginia Jew free,

283
00:14:04,340 –> 00:14:07,660
saying that she should be up on the same charges that Ghislaine was.

284
00:14:08,240 –> 00:14:08,800
Of course,

285
00:14:08,800 –> 00:14:10,010
it seems,

286
00:14:10,190 –> 00:14:12,860
according to people who watched the segment,

287
00:14:12,890 –> 00:14:16,580
that he didn’t point out his conflict of interest,

288
00:14:16,730 –> 00:14:23,150
one that he was Epstein’s lawyer and that Virginia Giuffre has brought a civil suit against him for defamation.

289
00:14:23,420 –> 00:14:24,350
He forgot about that.

290
00:14:24,740 –> 00:14:25,360
Plus,

291
00:14:25,370 –> 00:14:29,190
according to something he put on the docket in that civil case,

292
00:14:29,200 –> 00:14:30,470
he’s on his deathbed.

293
00:14:30,470 –> 00:14:35,900
He’s dying and doesn’t believe he will be there to see the outcome of his civil case.

294
00:14:35,930 –> 00:14:37,960
But he can go into all these interviews.

295
00:14:37,960 –> 00:14:39,410
So he’s been on BBC.

296
00:14:39,420 –> 00:14:40,100
Supposedly,

297
00:14:40,100 –> 00:14:44,560
he went on another big Q flavoured podcast as well.

298
00:14:44,840 –> 00:14:48,870
And he had his minion put out today an attack on Virginia as well.

299
00:14:48,870 –> 00:14:52,180
And I just thought anyone who claims to be a journalist would know.

300
00:14:52,180 –> 00:14:55,750
Today is not the day for another element of this story.

301
00:14:55,760 –> 00:14:56,840
Everyone is busy.

302
00:14:56,850 –> 00:14:58,570
No one will see what you’ve written.

303
00:14:58,570 –> 00:15:02,930
I’m sorry you just got thrown out with the trash and the trash.

304
00:15:02,940 –> 00:15:04,860
Today is delay Maxwell.

305
00:15:05,540 –> 00:15:06,950
Absolutely.

306
00:15:06,960 –> 00:15:11,430
She has certainly come a long way from arrests from the helicopters,

307
00:15:11,430 –> 00:15:16,770
from the yachts from being lady of the House chin because the tables have turned.

308
00:15:16,830 –> 00:15:17,620
And for once,

309
00:15:17,620 –> 00:15:18,890
we’re there to see it.

310
00:15:19,100 –> 00:15:20,060
It’s so good.

311
00:15:20,640 –> 00:15:21,710
It is so good.

312
00:15:21,720 –> 00:15:29,550
I can’t comprehend how I know how excited we were and how relieved and then stunned and teary when the verdict came down.

313
00:15:29,560 –> 00:15:31,760
Imagine what the survivors are going through.

314
00:15:32,140 –> 00:15:36,630
Those women have displayed so much strength.

315
00:15:36,640 –> 00:15:45,160
And I want to say congratulations and hopefully this will be a new era for you because you are believed you are.

316
00:15:45,540 –> 00:15:47,060
These women matter.

317
00:15:47,640 –> 00:15:50,910
That’s why we did this podcast Jen more than two years ago.

318
00:15:50,920 –> 00:15:52,830
This is a massive development,

319
00:15:52,840 –> 00:16:01,570
and I want to say congratulations to the government in how they ran because that was the best set of charges to lay.

320
00:16:01,580 –> 00:16:03,890
There was a lot of chest thumping going on.

321
00:16:03,890 –> 00:16:04,570
It was bad.

322
00:16:04,570 –> 00:16:05,490
It wasn’t good enough.

323
00:16:05,490 –> 00:16:06,530
They did a bad job.

324
00:16:06,540 –> 00:16:06,930
No,

325
00:16:06,940 –> 00:16:10,970
within the structure of the laws that are written that they had to abide by.

326
00:16:10,980 –> 00:16:14,120
That was the best set of charges to bring against L.

327
00:16:14,120 –> 00:16:14,210
A.

328
00:16:14,210 –> 00:16:14,850
Maxwell,

329
00:16:15,640 –> 00:16:18,950
and she will now be out of her remand facility.

330
00:16:18,950 –> 00:16:19,570
Prison.

331
00:16:19,720 –> 00:16:22,450
She’ll now go into what they call club Fed.

332
00:16:22,510 –> 00:16:24,580
I don’t know if you’re going to get your vegan food there,

333
00:16:24,580 –> 00:16:24,980
either.

334
00:16:24,980 –> 00:16:25,620
Ghislaine.

335
00:16:25,630 –> 00:16:30,330
We shall see many people think this is the end of this saga.

336
00:16:30,340 –> 00:16:30,850
No,

337
00:16:30,860 –> 00:16:33,060
it’s just the beginning.

338
00:16:33,640 –> 00:16:36,440
There are so many avenues that we need to chase down.

339
00:16:36,440 –> 00:16:40,450
There are so many other enablers that need to be chased down.

340
00:16:40,540 –> 00:16:41,080
Yes,

341
00:16:41,080 –> 00:16:44,070
and they would be getting absolutely nervous tonight.

342
00:16:44,110 –> 00:16:44,550
Good.

343
00:16:44,740 –> 00:16:46,630
We should send a few emails.

344
00:16:46,840 –> 00:16:47,250
Yes,

345
00:16:47,250 –> 00:16:47,580
Jen,

346
00:16:47,590 –> 00:16:49,500
I love sending emails to people.

347
00:16:49,540 –> 00:16:50,220
Absolutely.

348
00:16:50,220 –> 00:16:52,360
Sarah Kellen Vickers might want one.

349
00:16:52,740 –> 00:16:53,570
Shut out.

350

Judge Gives Ghislaine Maxwell Jury Warning About Covid Mistrial

Ghislaine Maxwell jury There is still no verdict in the sex trafficking trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The jury in the case of the disgraced publishing scion is deliberating in New York and has assured the court it is making progress in its deliberations.

Ghislaine Maxwell Jury

The prospect the deliberations may go into the weekend now looms large. Matthew Russell Lee from Inner City Press is inside the court.

582671AB 007D 46AD 9AC8 A667303E6586

According to Mr Russell Lee, there is a possibility deliberations may go into New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. But the jury is not yet aware of the New Yearr’s Day possibility.

The judge is increasingly concerned about the covid risk posed by the new variant and the possibility of a mistrial, according to another report.

Maxwell is accused of sex trafficking for dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in what has been called the “trial of the century” in the United States.

The 60-year-old, who spent her Christmas Day birthday in prison, faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted on all charges. 

Ghislaine Maxwell jury

Meanwhile, on Monday, Maxwell jurors issued questions to the court and also requested more transcripts of testimonies, as they ended their third full day of deliberations without reaching a verdict. 

They also asked for a white board and different coloured sticky notes, as well as the transcript of the testimony of one of the witnesses, indicating that they may still have work to do before coming to a decision. 

The jury’s questions have led to a frenzy of speculation online.

Moreover, they also asked the judge for a definition of the word “entice”.

Ghislaine Maxwell jury

US District Judge Alison Nathan wrote in a reply to the question, the word meant to “attract, induce or lure using hope or desire.” 

Whether this is good or bad news depends on your side and may be akin to tea leaf reading.

There is still some lingering mystery about the future of the highest profile prisoner in the US remand system.

At the same time, there is almost 3million pages of evidence under consideration by the jury. 

The deliberations are ongoing.

Ghislaine Maxwell Jury About Our Podcast

Lisa & Jen also report on the vast infrastructure of people who helped Epstein do what he did right under everyone’s noses. They discuss his enablers, recruiters, chefs, pilots, secretaries, maids, bankers, lawyers, ex-girlfriends, doctors, friends and business associates.

They have been sought for commentary by the BBC and Naked Television, an award-winning documentary company which makes programmes for major UK and US networks. Their work was also featured in The Newcastle Herald and their research was cited by The Daily Mail.

Ghislaine Maxwell to Pass Christmas in Jail After No Resolution By Jurors

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now? The British socialite and daughter of publisher Robert Maxwell, will spend Christmas in jail without a resolution to her sex trafficking trial.

The jury members ended a shortened first week of deliberations on Wednesday without reaching a verdict.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

The jury was set to continue to decide on a verdict after a full day’s worth of deliberation, but has decided to take a holiday season break until Monday morning.

“Maxwell insists that just because the allegations against her are repeated “over and over again doesn’t make any of it any more true…What are they hoping to accomplish from all this? Jeffrey is dead.”

But is Ghislaine Maxwell living life like a queen in jail? Do the rich get special treatment?

While she and her team may beg to differ, the high-profile prisoner gets to wear an eye mask at night, sleeps through her 15-minute welfare checks, has access to a tv, and a line for social calls.

Well that is what the government has to say about her conditions and, disturbingly, it also says her cell stinks because she doesn’t flush the toilet!

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

Her lawyers say the eye mask is a towel, the plumbing was the flushing culprit and the food and water inside the jail was disgusting.

There are still so many lingering mysteries about the highest profile prisoner in the US remand system.

At the same time, there is almost 3million pages of evidence which went to her from the prosecution via her lawyers. So she has spent a lot of time in a private area for confidential lawyer discussions.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

We believe the entire Epstein child trafficking scheme is at its core about money laundering. To the financial elite, abused children are a means to an end, a form of currency.

What we are talking about on the podcast:

IN February we uploaded a Start Here Episode so that you could listen and get an idea of the players, places and timelines in the alleged child sex trafficking ring involving Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. A sort of cliff notes I suppose.

Since we published that hour-long episode, so much has happened and it’s time to update and bring the timeline up to date.

This means that if you listen to this and the previous episode you can jump right into our normal episodes and have a fair idea of the criminal charges, the locations and the players.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

The biggest changes included an expansion of the criminal charges against Maxwell, who is being held in the Brooklyn Detention Centre, and additional, but denied, bail attempts.

Naturally she’s been appealing all the denied ball applications and her April 7th appeal judgement of DENIED was loaded into the document system on June 7th with MANDATE in stop sign red stamped over the order. Just love it when the red pen comes out.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

Defendant-Appellant Ghislaine Maxwell appeals from orders of the District Court entered December 28, 2020 and March 22, 2021, which denied her renewed requests for bail pending trial. See Dkts. 1, 20. Upon due consideration, it is hereby ORDERED that the District Court’s orders are AFFIRMED and that Appellant’s motion for bail, or in the alternative, temporary pretrial release pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(i), Dkt. 39, is DENIED. “

In another huge move, in late March a superseded indictment was released, extending not just the time frame surrounding the criminal charges but increased the number of minor victims from 3 to 4.

THE FBI had maintained from the start that there would be other charges arising and this superseded indictment includes an additional victim, more trafficking charges and a forfeiture charge as well.

The new charges related to Minor Victim 4 who initially met Gmax and Epstein when she was 14. While the previous charges for minor victims 1, 2 and 3 related to the 1990s, the charges relating to MV4 were for the time range of 2001 to 2004.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

There were also added charges of ‘conspiracy to sex traffic” and “sex trafficking of a minor”.  The authorities also allege that Gmax offered to help MV4 get a passport which MV4 turned down and referred to MV4 being couriered lingerie from Epstein’s New York mansion to the child’s home in Florida.

The forfeiture charges added to the second indictment means that the Gov is now going after her assets during the periods relating to the criminal charges.

That means the Gov wants any properties or investments GMax had during those years, and if said assets have since been sold or transferred, say to any trusts she has with her spouse Scott Borgerson, the government wants the $ value instead.

This includes her New York townhouse that she sold in 2015 just before her 2016 civil defamation case brought against her by Virginia Roberts Giuffre for around $15million.

C869BD2C 7F22 4CB0 8A06 DC05AF438DA1
US v Maxwell 2021

The superseded indictment meant that Gmax had to enter a new plea and in a twist she opted for an  in-person appearance in Manhattan Federal Court on April 23 where she plead not guilty, although one of her lawyers answered it for her.

At this in-person appearance much was made of GMax’s appearance, as the family had been protesting about her conditions of incarceration and saying that she had dropped weight and was losing hair due to the draconian conditions. In a recent American ABC 20/20 program her brother Ian asserted she had lost 20 pounds.

The Jury’s Out: Ghislaine Maxwell Case

While the Maxwell family and her legal team constantly proclaimed she had lost weight documents supplied by the DOJ to Judge Nathan indicated that she in fact weighed 3 pounds more than at the time she was arrested.

During her in –person appearance in court on April 23 her greying, and longer hair was much discussed but most news outlets commented that she did not seem to either have lost weight or hair.

In a bizarre move the family hired its own court artist to do a sketch of GMAX to distribute to news outlets.

AP and Rueters also had court artists in the room and of the three images produced the Maxwell families offering had that instagram filter feel too it, despite trying to push the narrative that she was falling to bits health wise, it really was the most glam of all the sketches.

It was said she opted for the in-person appearance despite covid worries so that she could see her family but in the end the only family who made an appearance was her sister Isabel who seemed totally awkward outside the court, or as Lisa described it, acted like a pacman with weird stumbling while trying to enter and leave the court. Gmax’s spouse Scott Borgerson was nowhere to be seen.

A week after her appearance in court news hit that GMAx had a black eye and a photo of a close up of gmax’s face with a dark bruise under the lower tear duct was released by her legal team.

She claimed that she was not told of the bruise by prison staff but noticed the discolouration in the reflective surface of a pair of nail scissors. There are many theories about the ‘black eye’, with some stating she may have poked her eye in her sleep or it may have been the result of an allergic reaction.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

What we can surmise from the description of her discovering it and the family and legal teams’ denouncement of staff for not telling her about it, was that there was no swelling nor pain involved, just the discolouration.

Again this was to push the narrative, rightly or wrongly, of harsh and inhumane treatment. All I can say is that if GMAX has no access to a mirror as claimed by her legal team, her eyebrows are a piece of art and perfectly groomed. 

59AFAB2E 2BA8 40AC A676 FA68A0CDE013
Isabel Maxwell’s Dead/Missing Spouse Al Seckel

Naturally with the release of the second indictment GMax’s legal team had ramped up the flow of complaints about her lack of time for discovery and her conditions. 

They had been complaining about her conditions, as had her family, but it reached boiling point after the superseded indictment and so negotiations got underway to push back the July 12 trial to allow her to prepare properly.

At first the Gmax team were pushing for March 2022, no doubt thinking that pushing back the trial date may help secure bail for her but in May both her defence team and the Gov settled on Nov 29 as the start of the criminal trial.

The revised date has not stopped the constant barrage about the conditions she faces in the correctional facility. Her legal team have lodged complaints about harassment by guards, sewage overflowing in her cell, vermin droppings falling from air vents, her lack of privacy and her inability to talk to her counsel in private.

They are also constantly complaining about the wellness checks carried out every 15 minutes over night when guards are required to check to see if she is breathing and safe.

The DOJ has stated that the checks are done by the guards shining a torch to the ceiling to give enough light to see if she is breathing. GMax legal team have maintained the torch is shone directly into her eyes therefore waking her up.

DOJ staff have also raised issues about GMax’s lack of hygiene and having to order her to clean her room and her avoidance of flushing her own toilet.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?
Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

Each time the gmax team complains about her treatment, which the family has likened to that of fictional serial killer Hannibal Lector – yeah cause that’s a great parallel – the DOJ and the government have consistently, and I must say patiently,  explained the situation of her imprisonment.

This came to a head recently when in a letter by Bobbie Sternham, one of Gmax lawyers, requested that the DOJ no longer refer to her conditions, only to any changes.  On june 15 Sternham wrote:

“”This letter is submitted in response to the government’s letter of June 7, 2021, updating the Court concerning Ghislaine Maxwell’s conditions of detention. This letter, like the ones before it, contains second- and third-hand information and presents a one-sided review, giving the Court and the public the false impression that Ms. Maxwell is detained under favorable and privileged conditions. Each time, the defense feels compelled to respond to give the Court and the public a complete and accurate picture of Ms. Maxwell’s unacceptable conditions of confinement. This is not the purpose that these updates were designed to serve. Accordingly, the defense requests that any further updates be limited to changed circumstances.”

The june 7th letter from the Gov that raised the hackles of the GMax legal team outlined bluntly the amount of time and support GMAX had. And I quote:

The defendant continues to receive more time to review discovery than any other inmate at the MDC.

Specifically, the defendant is permitted to review her discovery thirteen hours per day, seven days per week.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

During the entirety of that time, the defendant still has access to both a desktop computer provided by the MDC and a laptop computer provided by the Government on which to review discovery.

 Also during those thirteen hours per day, the defendant may use the MDC desktop computer to send and receive emails with her attorneys.

This discovery review takes place in a day room that is separate from the defendant’s assigned cell. Accordingly, the defendant continues to be permitted out of her cell from 7am to 8pm every day.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

While in the day room, the defendant continues to have exclusive access to the MDC desktop computer, the laptop, a television, a phone on which to place social or attorney calls, and a shower. 

The defendant is also permitted outdoor recreation every day, although she has the option of declining such recreation time if she wishes.

 The defendant also continues to receive as much, if not more, time as any other MDC inmate to communicate with her attorneys. Currently, the defendant receives five hours of videoteleconference (“VTC”) calls with her counsel every weekday, for a total of 25 hours of attorney VTC calls per week. 

All of these VTC calls take place in a room where the defendant is alone and where no MDC staff can hear her communications with counsel.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

During these VTC calls, MDC staff place a camera approximately 30 feet away from the door to the room where the defendant conducts the VTC calls. The camera has a full view of the door to the VTC room, but the camera does not capture any sound from the defendant’s VTC calls with her attorneys. 

The defendant is also permitted to use the phone in the day room to place phone calls to her attorneys as needed. In addition, the defendant receives in-person visits from her attorneys as needed on weekends.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?
Ghislaine’s lawyer Christian Everdell

IT’s doubtful that any other prisoners in the facility have the level of access that GMAx has to work on her defence and to contact family and friends, considering she has sole access to two computers and has sole access to the telephone and the video conferencing equipment and would not have to wait in line like some other prisoners.

It’s my belief that these subtle references to how GMax has more access than others that made Bobbie DEMAND that from now on the DOJ and GOV no longer bring up her rarefied conditions.  It’s my belief that the GMax team wishes to complain but does not want to hear any references to how much access she has and the facilities she has, that they are worried that the general public may started to think that she may be getting preferential treatment compared to other prisoners, which goes against the narrative her legal team are trying to project. 

It’s not just the legal team that are pushing out that she is being treated badly, her family set up a twitter account in late feb called RealGhislaine.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?
Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

The bio reads….. Developed and maintained by Ghislaine Maxwell’s brothers and sisters. We will continue to fight on behalf of our beloved sister. Follow us for the truth and Updates.

Opinions vary as to if it’s her brother Ian running the account as he has claimed, or if there is a media specialist writing it, but it and the website it links to really need a good sub editor to go over it. Yes yes  my professional background is showing here but you’d think they would at least try to use correct tenses and coherent sentences when arguing GMax’s  innocence.

It’s this account that has likened GMax’s imprisonment to that of Hannibal Lector and Nelson Mandala. Yes they went there.

The same tweets are repeated over and over again although recently there has been a subtle change in the content. They have started to use ‘influencer or inspirational’ style tweets such as using the hashtag SAK which stands for Simple Act of Kindness.

One recent tweet read: Kindness has the power to impact both the giver and receiver – leaving a lasting impression on both. As humans, we are “literally wired for kindness”. What simple act of kindness did/will you do today? #SAK

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

However the responses they received were more sledging than supportive in nature.

For example twitter user The Presidential replied “What a wonderful sentiment. Today I approached a young underprivileged woman and offered her a start in a modelling career if she would just give my rich friend a massage. What act of kindness did you do today?

This was one of the many snarky and pointed tweets thrown at the family’s account, which led to Real Ghislaine tweeting out #SAK alert: To all those who shared with us about their single act of kindness and performed a #SAK that is beautiful. Thank you.

To all those who responded with a snarky/rude #SAK perhaps your #SAK today should be not to send unkind tweets for 24 hours. Can you do it?

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

So not just content with trying to tell the court and the DOJ how to do their jobs, the family thinks it has the moral high ground to tell twitter users how to use their own social media accounts. 

As yet we have not been blocked from viewing the account and the account has responded to a tweet lisa Sent them about a photograph she found of gmax on a motorbike wearing rather low slung jeans and what looks like a thong, g-string or g-banger style of underwear.

The RealGhislaine replied to Lisa saying it was a tattoo not underwear.

Since their response to Lisa, I’ve consistently asked the account what the tattoo is of, as tattoos in this region (which around here are known as tramp stamps) are normally horizontal in design but if this dark, vertical mark you can clearly see in the photograph is a tattoo then there are only a few options, mainly a big bold arrow pointing down.

As yet RealGhislaine has not responded to my question and I’d really like to know if the words ENTER HERE are inscribed above the vertical line which I’m assuming is a downward pointing arrow.

How I haven’t been blocked I have no idea.

This account also follows some rather interesting accounts, naturally one is Marthas Vineyard’s professional nude volleyballer and Harvard Law Professor  Alan Dershowitz who was not just Epstein’s lawyer but according to statements made by Dersh in interviews over the years, a good friend of Epstein. The family account follows some big news outlets but then some smaller and strange accounts, chosen no doubt for their convictions.

There’s one account they do follow that constantly responds supportively, and the RGMAX account regularly likes their tweets.

However this is an account that has posted this, in all caps mind you : ignorant people falsely accusing Prince Andrew being a pedophile the DSM accurate definition of a pedophile is having intense sexual urges and fantasies towards prepubescent children (that typically excludes teenagers as they are in puberty and female teenagers can have children. …. Yes that’s right, the RealGhislaine account follows accounts that pushes false info and info supportive of paedophilia. 

Oh and the RealGhislaine account also likes its own posts, and you all know what that means, total bloody ego.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

So GMax is still in a faux solitary confinement with almost unfettered access to her legal team, family and friends via a telephone she doesn’t have to share with any other prisoner.

Isabel
She wore a multiplicity of berets: Isabel Maxwell

She has a desktop and a laptop computer, again for her sole use. Her own day room with a shower, again for her own use, not to mention video conferencing equipment while she reads and looks at the 300,000 pages of evidence not to mention thousands of images and videos.


However the Gmax legal team and family have made a huge deal about the fact that convicted rapist Cosby was recently released from  jail. 

Essentially it was like the Florida non-prosecution deal and Cosby was one of the named women who enabled him.

Where is Ghislaine Maxwell Now?

So Cosby while admitting drugging women was released from jail on a legal technicality, not because he was innocent and that the guilty verdict had been overturned, but because of a previous legal non-prosecution agreement.

Gmax’s legal team and family have jumped on Cosby’s release stating that it is another reason why GMax should be released. 

Maxwell Trial News

Maxwell Trial News the jury in the Ghislaine Maxwell prosecution asked today to re-read testimonies from three accusers before coming to a decision.

Maxwell, age 59, is on trial in New York City for sex trafficking charges.

The jury has broken for the holidays and will return Monday.

Listen to The Prince and the Pervert Podcast: is this the end for Maxwell?

Judge Alison Nathan said over the weekend jurors would be instructed that they may choose to convict Ms Maxwell if they conclude she either ignored or “consciously avoided” knowledge of Epstein’s underage sexual encounters.

The jury asked in Tuesday to re-read testimonies from three of these accusers before coming to a decision.

Carolyn, who testified under her first name, was 14 when Epstein started to abuse her in the early 2000s.

Jane, who testified under a pseudonym, said he started to sexually abuse her when she was 14. She told jurors Maxwell was sometimes present for, and participated in, such abuse.

Ghislaine’s defence team says that Maxwell is innocent and is being framed by these women.

Closing arguments in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of aiding her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein in the sexual abuse of underage girls, ended on Monday.

In its final statement, the prosecution said that Maxwell’s close relationship with Epstein and “manipulative” actions were key to the international abuse.

The prosecution asserted that Maxwell was not a victim or a unwitting accomplice in Epstein’s crimes.

Moreover, she was a co-conspirator who used her extensive network of contacts to launder money and recruit underage girls for Epstein.

Maxwell Trial News

Prosecutors also argued that Maxwell had lied to authorities and tried to obstruct the investigation into Epstein’s behavior.

Defense attorneys countered by saying that there was no evidence that Maxwell had ever engaged in sex abuse.

But the government accused Maxwell of touching the breast of three of the complainants.

Judge Alison Nathan said over the weekend that jurors would be instructed they may choose to convict Ms Maxwell if they concluded she either ignored or “consciously avoided” knowledge of Epstein’s underage sexual encounters.

When will we get a verdict from the jury?

There are still some lingering mysteries about the highest profile prisoner in the US remand system. At the same time, there is almost 3million pages of evidence from the prosecution to her lawyers. 

GHISLAINE MAXWELL. Youngest daughter of disgraced UK publisher Robert Maxwell and his French wife Betty. Maxwell Snr is said to have fled Chezoslovakia during WWII as a teenager. Despite his background Maxwell Snr ended up speaking English with a refined accent, and was fluent in many other languages.

He’s widely said he was a spy, a tag that also haunts his daughter.

She was the last of nine children, born in France on Xmas day 1961, hence her middle name being Noelle. She led a life of luxury, the right schools, mixing with the elite and yes that includes royalty.

In 1991 her father died in suspicious circumstances and was found dead floating in the water alongside his mega yacht, The Lady Ghislaine. It’s said she was her father’s favourite and in the days following his death she dealt with the press and the funeral arrangements, rather than her older brothers who were also involved in the family business.

Maxwell senior died under a cloud of scandal, there were millions missing from his companies pension fund. This resulted in court cases and bankruptcies, but that’s for another pod.

Maxwell Trial News

Said to be devastated by the death of her father, Ghislaine fled to the US, where she was reduced to living on a trust fund of a reported 100k a year. A huge amount for most, but to her a massive decline in her circumstances. At the time of her father’s death she knew JE, but it’s not known if she met JE before her Father, or if her Father introduced her.

She no doubt was the person who introduced JE to Prince Andrew.

For many years she was his live in companion, many have stated that she was desperate to marry epstein. She has acknowledged she worked for him, organising people for JE to hire, decorating his many homes, working with architects on renovation projects and other such things.

She stated in her 2016 deposition in the Guiffre V Maxwell defamation case that by 04 she had little to do with JE, in fact only did a bit of work for him and only saw him occasionally, most notably around the time of JE’s mother’s death in 04.

It is know that she started dating Gateway internet founder Ted Waitte in 04, a relationship that lasted until late 2010 or early 2011.

No doubt the whispers of JE florida arrest and sentencing affected her social standing and many believe her charity and foundation work following this was to rehabilitate herself and distance herself from the convicted paedophile.

She set up the save the ocean charity Terramar Project in 2012 and it’s rumoured that it was through her work with Terramar that she met now confirmed husband Tom Borgenson.

The Daily Mail announced the pair had met at the first annual Arctic Circle Assembly, a think tank for environmental, resources and trade centred on the Arctic Circle in late 2013, however our exclusive investigations have confirmed that Borgenson was listed on the board of Terramar in the March of 2013, months before the inaugural assembly. She closed  TerraMar on July 12 2019 days after JE’s arrest.

IT was around this time she stopped being on the social circuit with few photos surfacing from 2016 onways. By 2017 her lawyers stated they did not know where she was living.

Maxwell Trial News

In a lawsuit filed in  2017 by Sarah Ransome against Maxwell, Discrict Judge John Koelti granted a motion for ‘alternative servie’ on the grounds that the plantiffs efforts to reach Maxwell were persistently thwarted, including Ransome hiring private investigors to try and track her down. 

In august of 2019 it was reported that she was living in Manchester-by-the-sea with Borgerson, but he denied any relationship with Maxwell, stating that she was not living at the home and that he did not know where she was and denied any romantic partnership.

In October 2020 Borg stepped down as his role as CEO of CargoMetries, a head fund investment company involved in maritime data anyalyics  – shipping trade route info, due to his association with Maxwell.

It was rumoured that the pair had been dating since Borgenson divorced his wife in 2015, although our investigations point to the pair hooking up years prior.

After Epstein’s arrest she was still missing and the only hint of her location was the Los Angeles In-And-Out burger photo.

Various news reports described her as being on the run, even to saying she had been hiding out in a French castle or in paris, locations not too far-fetched as she is a French citizen. She also holds UK and US citizenship.

In late December 2019 it emerged that she was one of the people the FBI was investigating for facilitating Epstein, and it later emerged that her lawyers had been communicating with the SDNY via email, but refused to disclose where she was or accept on her behalf service of three civil  lawsuits against her. 

On July 2 2020 the FBI raided her home in Bradford, New Hampshire, a property she bought using an LLC.

She and an unidentified man viewed the property giving their names as Jan and Scott Marshall, and that she was a journalist and wanted seclusion.


Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict: the End?

Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict: the jury has retired to consider the sex trafficking charges against Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girfriend.

The Brit spent her 60th birthday in custody at The Metropolitan Remand Centre, Brooklyn.

Jurors have broken for the holidays and will resume their deliberations on Monday.

Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict: Jurors in the Ghislaine Maxwell criminal trial were told today the socialite daughter of fraudster Robert Maxwell was at the heart of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex abuse ring.

“When that man (Jeffrey Epstein) is accompanied by a posh, smiling, respectable, age-appropriate woman, that’s when everything starts to seem legitimate,” said Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe.

Listen to The Prince and the Pervert Podcast: Is this the End for Ghislaine Maxwell?

Maxwell could die in jail if she convicted. She has denied all of the charges against her.

Prosecutors allege that Maxwell was involved in Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, which involved underage girls and adult women. They accuse her of being an “integral part of the operation.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Maurene Comey said the claim Maxwell had no knowledge of the abuse that occurred to the four trial accusers was a “laughable argument.”

“Those four witnesses gave you the most damaging testimony in this trial,” she said. “These women put themselves through the hell of testifying at this trial even though they have nothing to gain.”

But Epstein kept many secrets from Maxwell, the defence said.

Moreover, her lawyers have argued that there was no evidence linking her to any wrongdoing. They said she was merely a friend of Epstein.

Inner City Press reported from the court, Menninger saying: ”Then there’s the manipulation piece. We’ll go through the stories of each witness. The stories have changed. Carolyn had a lawyer in 2008, a story about Epstein and Sarah Kellen who she also sued without mentioning Ghislaine Maxwell…

Ghislaine is being tried here for being with  Jeffrey Epstein. Maybe it was the bigger mistake of her life. But it is not a crime. Acquit her.”

Is Ghislaine Maxwell Guilty?

“Epstein could not have done this alone,” Assistant US Alison Moe told the court.

Ghislaine Maxwell was Epstein’s alleged recruiter, friend and partner. 

According to The Guardian, the prosecution described Maxwell as a “woman who preyed on vulnerable kids.”

“She targeted a girl whose father had just died. She targeted a girl whose mother was an alcoholic. She targeted a girl with a single mom who was struggling to raise her daughters,” Ms Moe said.

US Assistant Attorney Maureen Comey told thr court Maxwell had touched three witnesses breasts.

Ghislaine Maxwell guilty

“The defense tried to get you to look way through the massive amount of evidence Ms. Moe walked you through this morning,” Ms Comey said.

Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger said her client was being persecuted for Epstein’s crimes.

“I am not here to defend Jeffrey Epstein. He is not my client. The US presented evidence like a sensational tabloid,” she said.

Ms Menninger cited the prosecution’s references to Epstein’s private island and photos as prejudicial.

Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict

Ghislaine Maxwell Guilty


These were things that Epstein did, perhaps, his crimes. But Ghislaine Maxwell was not Epstein, Ms Menninger said.

According to The Daily Beast, the defence “took swipes at the government and all but suggested a vast conspiracy to frame Maxwell for Epstein’s sex crimes.”

“Every last one of the government’s interviews with these accusers was not recorded … and that was by design,” her team said.

From inside the court today (December 21 ADST) during final prosecution and defence arguments, we heard reports the 59-year-old prisoner was visibly upset.

After days of testimony over three weeks, jurors heard from final witnesses in the trial of socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who told the judge she wouldn’t testify because she was confident prosecutors hadn’t proved their case.

The Brit’s legal defence team had originally flagged it would call up to 35 witnesses, but only presented eight.

The defence asked the jury on Monday to consider: ”Where are the other 37,000 photographs? Who was in them? You don’t know. They didn’t bring you those photos. There were folders and binders. But they brought you the most innocuous photos of a couple that was once together.”

“They’ve made Ghislaine Maxwell to be Cruela DeVille and the Devil Wears Prada all rolled up in to one.” Maxwell Counsel Laura Menninger said.

“Ghislaine is being tried here for being with  Jeffrey Epstein. Maybe it was the bigger mistake of her life. But it is not a crime. Acquit her.”

John Sweeney wrote in The Guardian: “Maxwell was seen holding her hands up in despair at her fancy attorneys who have cost her, according to their own estimate some $7m.”

He added: “the reason there is no defence is because there is no defence: that is, Ghislaine Maxwell is guilty.”

His colleague Victoria Bekiempis reported on what she perceived as failed attempts to make Maxwell appear likeable.

“Even the fairest of jurors likely won’t be able to ignore prosecutors’ attempted portrayal of Maxwell as a privileged socialite. Prosecutors contend that Maxwell committed crimes to preserve her gilded lifestyle…

The defense’s mounting of a campaign on likability – a common courtroom tactic – is a response to that prosecution attack. If Maxwell were more likable to jurors, there just might be a slight chance.”

Want to know more about Jeffrey Epstein?

Many of us are walking Epstein and Maxwell encyclopaedias, others are just catching up with the case, so for those of you who are new to the case this is our ‘start here”.

 This is a rundown on the major dates in the Epstein and Maxwell case, along with a look at the major players, the enablers, the co-conspirators, and the survivors. So you can jump right into the pod series, rather than having to go all the way back. 

There’s not time enough to cover EVERYTHING but this will get you started.

Ghislaine Maxwell Prince Andrew

Jeffrey Epstein was born in 1953 in working class Coney Island.

His dad Seymour was a parks worker and mum (Paula) worked various jobs, mainly as a school aide. He had a younger brother Mark, his sole heir. 

He was a gifted kid and skipped forward a couple of years at school, maths was his thing. But despite his intelligence he didn’t manage to graduate with a degree despite enrolling in both Cooper Union and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at NY University.

In September 1974 he started working at the Dalton School, an exclusive private school in New York. The headmaster at the time he was employed was Donald Barr, yes, father of William. Epstein was employed to teach physics and maths despite having no qualifications. From accounts of former students and colleagues, he stood out in the school, wearing outfits that would have made Tony Manero from Saturday night fever green with envy.  

How he moved to the financial institution Bear Sterns is also shrouded in mystery, although some say he wowed  Alan Greenberg, the chief executive officer of whose two children were at the school during a parent teacher interview.Greenberg’s daughter Lynne, has said that Epstein convinced another parent to put in a good word for him with Greenberg.

In june of 1976 he left teaching, some say under a shadow, to go work as a junior assistant to a floor trader, moving quickly to be an options trader. Within four years he became a limited partner of the company. He was soaring so to speak. 

If his career was murky before, becoming a teacher then a trader, without qualifications, it gets dirtier when in mid 1981 he was asked to leave Bear Sterns for what he would say was a violation of regulations. 

He hit out on his own with his own company called Intercontinental Assets Group, where he was basically a debt collector for mega rich clients not just in the US but also the UK and Switzerland. 

This is when his legend as a financial genius started, particularly when he helped  Spanishactress and heiress Ana Obregon retrieve millions that went missing in the Rysdale Government Securities  fraud.

It was in the mid late 1980s that he met UK publisher Robert Maxwell and his youngest child Ghislaine who would be for many years his partner and is now alleged to be his co-conspirator in the sex trafficking of minors. It’s not known who he met first, the father or the daughter, but like Robert Maxwell, he was also by now a self-made man.

In 1987 he started working for Steve Hoffenberg as a consultant for Towers Financial Corporation and the money continued to flow. 

Epstein worked at Towers for two years until 1989. In 1993 when Towers imploded in one of the world’s largest Ponzi schemes Hoffenberg pointed atEpstein in court documents, blaming him for the fraud.  Hoffenberg spent 18years in a federal prison and was ordered to repay 470million. It’s not known if Epstein did end up with the missing funds but he was never arrested in regards to the Towers Ponzi scheme.

In 1991 Robert Maxwell  ‘fell’ ‘was pushed’ or what ever it was off his luxury yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, and was found floating stone dead.Ghislaine turned to Epstein for support. Maxwell also died with a huge financial scandal on his head, the missing Maxwell Pension Funds. Again where the money is, no one knows.

Ghislaine fled the UK, trying to reinvent herself in the US where she soon was considered the partner of Epstein who by this stage was a wealthy man. The relationship may have been more than met the eye, she gave him contacts and the veneer of class, as she’d grown up wealthy in the UK, going to the right schools and knowing the right people like Prince Andrew who’d she’d know most of her life. She opened doors for him, he provided her with the lifestyle she was used to. 

Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict

Epstein continued working for select clients, the joke was they had to be billionaires, millions weren’t enough. He was known as an expert in “tax mitigation and trust funds”, all the financial moves the uber rich wanted. 

One of his big clients was Les Wexner, whose entire fortune was controlled by JE for a period of time. Wexner also ‘gave’Epstein the largest private residence in New York to Epstein in the mid 1990s, although some reports say he sold it to him for $1. The 7 storey mansion was the site of many of the allegations of sexual assault and rape.

Epstein also bought a place in Palm Beach, a ranch in New Mexico which he named Zorro, a Paris apartment and an Island called Little St James in the Virgin Islands, where he moved his firm for tax reasons, as the move to the VI islands meant he could reduce his federal income taxes by almost 90% according to some sources. HE later bought a larger island close by, but at the time of his death hadn’t developed it. 

Little was really known about Epstein, other than his swanky British partner and the fact he serviced only the richest of the rich, mixed in top circles, meeting politicians, businessmen, scientists and yes, British princes.

In March 2005 a stepmother of a 14yo highschool girl called the Palm Beach Police to say that Epstein had sexually assaulted the teen, sparking a huge investigation.

By 2008 Epstein was facing a 53 page Federal indictment on a raft of charges that should have landed him in jail for life.

Instead his legal team negotiated a plea deal that changed the charges to two counts of procuring underage prostitutes for sex.

He served 13 months in the county jail and part of this plea deal was that he was released for 12 hours, six days a week for work release.

637D7CA2 9AD4 4D27 B5F0 DB4B85D30213
Maxwell at sea

This deal is known as the ‘plea deal” or the “”non prosecution deal’ and was brokered by the US Attorney’s office in Miami, then led by Alex Acosta (yes  President Trumps labor secretary until he …… just after JE 2019 arrest and death in custody) representing  Epstein was a slew of lawyers including Harvard Prof Alan Dershowitz, who has also represented Trump, OJ, Mike Tyson, Patty Hearts and and most recently it has surfaced that Dershowitz tried to free convicted paedophile George Nader so he could be sent to the United Arab Emirates to help in dip0lomatic talks according to the New York Times.

Epstein’s plea deal not only swapped the Fed charges to two state counts but also provided JE and any alleged co-conspirators with immunity from any future prosecutions on the charges surrounding his arrest. 

He did his 13 months but then ignored his year long parole conditions, regularly leaving for his other homes in NY, NM and the VI without prior permission.

While he ducked out of sight for a while, he resumed his networking and tried to rehabilitate his reputation by donating huge sums to a variety of cultural, scientific and charitable foundations, organisations and think tanks, including Harvard and the NY Academy of Art.

However by this time Maxwell had started dating Gateway tech billionaire Ted Waitt although she remained part of Epstein’s life, describing herself as his best friend and his helper.

IN 2015 a story broke about his friendship with Prince Andrew with allegations from Virginia Roberts Giuffre that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked her to Prince Andrew in 2001 when she was 17. The story was huge in the UK and commonwealth countries.

Ghislaine Maxwell Verdict

Epstein kept travelling andtrafficking and raping children, dodging further arrests despite a slew of civil cases lodged against him and his alleged co-conspirator Maxwell, who in 2016 was taken to court in a civil defamation case by Viriginia Roberts Giuffre. The documents for this case were sealed, but have just been unsealed, although heavily redacted.

Despite the Prince Andrew allegations floating around and gossip Epstein just kept doing his thing until July 7, 2019 when Epstein was arrested on the tarmac at New Jersey’s Teterboro airport after returning from his Paris home.

On july 8, prosecutorsfrom the US Attorney’s Office for the SDNY alleged that from 02 to 05 Epstein “sexually exploited and abused dozen of minor girls and at his homes in Manhattan, NY and Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations, using $ to recruit a vast network of underage victims, and some of those victims were as young.

The cancer philanthropist testified in Manhattan federal court on Friday during the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell.

Dr Andersson-Dubin said she had traveled with Jeffrey Epstein and her young family on his planes.

“Were you and Mr Dubin comfortable with the relationship between Mr Epstein and your children?” asked Jeffrey Pagliuca, one of Maxwell’s attorneys.

“Yes, we were,” she said.

Mr Pagliuca: “Did it appear to you that Mr Epstein was fond of your children?”

Former Epstein Girlfriend Eva Dubin

Mrs Dubin responded: “yes he was”.

The defense witness also testified that she never observed any inappropriate conduct between Jeffrey Epstein and any teenage girls or underage females.

Mr Pagliuca queried claims from Maxwell accuser Jane about group sexual encounters.

During Jane’s cross-examination, she said that one participant in a sexualized group massage was named “Eva”.

When asked if she ever been in a group sexual encounter with the person called Jane, Dubin responded: “absolutely not”.

The Dubins are at the centre of allegations made by a butler concerning a bereft 15-year-old girl. 

The couple denies all the allegations and there are many.

Together the duo funds a cancer facility in New York, which Epstein also donated to under the ruse of a trust named for one of  the Dubin’s daughters.

The Epstein trust was reportedly named after the Dubin daughter Epstein wanted to marry.

There were multiple reports Epstein had a naked photo of the same child on his wall.

This was the same photo referenced at Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial.

Maxwell rested her sex-trafficking case after calling the prosecution’s arguments against her “unproven” and declining to testify. 

Her decision comes after her lawyers called nine witnesses over two days.

Maxwell, 59, denies grooming underage girls for abuse by the late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Closing arguments begin on Monday. The disgraced socialite faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted on charges of sex trafficking and perjury.

The trial continues next week.

Jeffrey Epstein, 66, was found dead in his jail cell on August 2019 while awaiting trial on federal charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls.

Elizabeth Loftus Ghislaine Maxwell’s Memory Expert

Elizabeth Loftus A false memory expert who promotes “repression folklore” theory is coming to court to critique the testimony of Jeffrey Epstein survivors.

As day 11 of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial starts, we are expected to this week hear from Dr Elizabeth Loftus, a Professor at UC Irvine.

Elizabeth Loftus
Listen to the Prince and the Pervert Podcast

Loftus is best known for her work on the misinformation effect and eyewitness memory,and the creation and nature of false memories,including recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse.

“Under certain circumstances, memory goes array; it gets distorted. And that can ruin people’s lives,” she said in 2015.

She’s also consulting to Prince Andrew, plus has worked for Harvey Weinstein and serial killer Ted Bundy.

Elizabeth Loftus

Her work is controversial.

Loftus says she has been insulted by a prosecutor, attacked by an airplane passenger who recognized her, received hate mail, and received death threats.

Moreover, she has had to have protection by security guards while giving invited addresses.

Ghislaine Maxwell News

Her invitation to give the keynote address at the New Zealand Psychological Society’s conference in 2000 provoked the society’s director of scientific affairs, John Read, to resign from his position and for conference attendees to distribute materials critical of Loftus’ work.

Elizabeth Loftus stated that she “didn’t wear her best jacket” to give her address for “fear of flying tomatoes.”

We know of her from our other podcast Goodbye Glam Squad , which features Tom Girardi, the fraudulent lawyer from the Erin Brockervich movie.

The powerhouse Hollywood lawyer was married to a real housewife and he has allegedly misappropriated about $200million.

“I have been involved in many cases concerning Catholic priests and teachers because …but there are also false cases,” she said in 2015 on Girardi’s now-defunct podcast Champions of Justice.

What I see in some of these situations…there’s some publicity about the case and other people come forward. They try to use the continuous memory for the false memory.”

Girardi, who now says he has rapid onset dementia, interviewed Loftus for 40 minutes.

Dr Elizabeth Loftus

Repression folklore: Controversy

She said:“Some of these cases are breathing new life into this repression folklore.”

Loftus has researched memory since the 1970s and says some people constructed ” a memory from something that never happened”.

“Bizarre cases that were being litigated claiming that they had been raped in satanic rituals, endured animal sacrifices and baby breeding and baby sacrifices,” she said.

Elizabeth Loftus

She adds: ”How does someone come to believe something so rich and detailed? It’s their truth…it can feel very much like a real memory.”

Prince and the Pervert Podcast Transcript

Lisa: I’m here today to tell you about the false memory expert who promotes “repression folklore theory.”

This week we’re expected to see Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, a professor at UC Irvine.

Loftus is best known for her work on the misinformation effect and eyewitness memory and the creation and nature of false memories, including recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse.

But guess what? She’s consulting to Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell, and in the past, she’s worked for disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and serial killer Ted Bundy as a witness in the court setting.

She’s very controversial, as one could imagine.

She was also attacked by an airplane passenger, who recognized her. Plus Loftus has received hate mail, death threats and had to have protection by security guards while giving out invited addresses.

Jen and I know of her from our other podcast, Goodbye Glam Squad.

He has also misappropriated about $200 million.

Now in 2015, Tom, who now says he has rapid onset dementia, that’s a long story. And if you want to get across that you’ll have to watch the last series of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, because his wife, Erika Jayne Gerardi is on the show. She also knows nothing.

What is going on? We are spending a lot of time on memory. It’s certainly fallible, isn’t it? Now Tom interviewed Loftus on his champions of justice podcast.

Yes, that’s right champions of justice. And he even had the Queen song Champions in the intro. But we’ve listened to this episode so you don’t have to, unless you want to, of course.

Now she says she has been involved in many cases concerning Catholic priests and teachers because, quote, there are also false cases.

Elizabeth Loftus does acknowledge that there are legitimate cases of sexual abuse. So she’s not she’s not discounting & is not questioning the trauma of people who have suffered sexual abuse.

But what she sees is there is some publicity about a case and other people come forward, they tried to use their continuous memory for the false memory.

So it just builds upon your existing memory, this alleged false memory.

Got it? Trust me, I’m a psychiatrist on the internet not.

“Some of these cases are breathing new life into this repression, folk law as in memory, memories that you get later, long after the alleged incident,” she said to Girardi.

Now, let’s give you an example of the kind of research that she does. She had one study which used a simulated car accident, and she used a stop sign in it, but was asking a leading question about a yield sign. And she said many of the witnesses in the study said it was a yield sign, not a stop sign when in fact, it was a stop sign.

So quote, “they’ve constructed a memory from something that never happened. Memory is contaminated.”

She goes on lighted to say that there are “bizarre cases that are being litigated, claiming that they had been raped in satanic rituals, and do it animal sacrifices and baby breathing and baby sacrifices.”

“How does someone come to believe something so rich and detailed? It’s their truth,”

Elizabeth Loftus acknowledges it can feel very much like a real memory.

She was also involved in the Oliver North testimony with the elat Iran Contra affair in the 80s, early 90s.

And she was looking in relation to Oliver North about the liability of memory.

She says under certain circumstances, memory goes awry, it gets distorted, and that can ruin people’s lives. Well, no doubt it can.

But she’s also worried that in the future now I hope some of those weirdo Epstein friends aren’t listening to this. People may be able to plant memories in the minds of others.

Now that raises some ethical issues, and I’m sure if we went to the little black book, belong to Epstein, where there’d be quite a few people we could call about that.

So you will see Elizabeth Loftus this week, with Ghislaine Maxwell this week,more than likely.

She will be testifying on behalf of Prince Andrew.

There’s an interesting New Yorker piece that she was profiled in talking about when she first met Weinstein.

And his question to her was: “How could something that was so consensual, be construed in this fashion as an assault?”

Well, I suppose that’s the nub of the issue. Weinstein in his warped mind, convinced the world thought that it was consensual.

Who knows? As we said in the podcast this week, 35 defense witnesses are being called. Some of them want to testify anonymously because they don’t want their lives ruined.

Others have travel problems and then there are some whose lawyers can’t be found over the weekend.

So be interesting to see when we finally get that list of names.

The government is opposing any anonymous witnesses.

As you can see from the Elizabeth Loftus situation certainly can get heated.

So to a degree I understand people’s reluctance to testify in support of Maxwell.

Some of them do have to travel so we believe that this may mean that coming from the UK or other parts of Europe because Maxwell’s mother was French. The accused also speaks fluent French.

Ghislaine Maxwell Prince Andrew and Jeff Epstein: Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and second son of Queen Elizabeth II, is rarely out of the news due to his relationship with socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Updated December 31 2021: Prince Andrew failed in another attempt to halt Virginia Giuffre’s sexual abuse lawsuit against him.

His attorneys filed a motion in New York federal court yesterday, which claimed that the US federal courts don’t have jurisdiction over her case because the Epstein whistleblower lives in Australia.

But Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies says that Prince Andrew is trying another delaying technique.

Giuffre filed the lawsuit in Manhattan federal court last year, claiming that she had been trafficked as an underage sex slave to Prince Andrew by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

She alleged had sex with the Duke of York at locations including Ghislaine Maxwell’s London home.

His attorneys have repeatedly asked the judge to throw out Giuffre’s claims on jurisdictional grounds.

Maxwell, who is accused of trafficking girls for Epstein, is facing trial in a US Court for sex trafficking. She is Prince Andrew’s long-term associate and they met many years ago in the elite circles of the UK aristocracy.

The Prince denies any impropriety but admits visiting Epstein in New York after he was released from a Florida jail in 2010. This photo makes it hard to say otherwise.

Moreover, this saga has been going on for almost 20 years now, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.

Lawyers are using Hollywood tactics to defend Prince Andrew against claims he assaulted a ten sex slave. 

Andrew had a weakness for the girls and fast life, Epstein provided that fantasy,” remarked Epstein’s reputed mentor Stephen Hoffenberg, who said the pedophile and Prince Andrew’s friendship began much earlier than stated.

In early August 2021, Virginia Roberts Giuffre (who now lives in Australia) brought a lawsuit against the Duke of York, claiming he sexually abused her on multiple occasions. 

The abuse was said to have taken place when she was 17 and involved the late, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, as well as jailed socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

What’s Happened to Ghislaine Maxwell

What’s Happened to Ghislaine Maxwell: As the world awaits the names of the 35 defence witnesses Ghislaine Maxwell wants to call, some want to their testimonies to be anonymous.

Listen to The Prince and the Pervert Podcast The Defence Witnesses Who Don’t Want to Be There.

At the same time, others are saying they can’t get to New York and some of their lawyers are uncontactable.

In a letter to Judge Alison Nathan, Maxwell’s lawyer Bobbi Sternheim wrote: ‘Three of the defence witnesses have requested to testify under their first names or under a pseudonym.

The court’s ruling on this issue may impact the willingness of these witnesses to testify, thereby compromising Ms Maxwell’s right to present her defence

We are still trying to make travel arrangements for defence witnesses, many of whom are coming from locations out of the district and abroad.’

Ms Sternheim also wrote the government had indicated it opposed the request for the witnesses to be anonymous.

To date, the names of the defence witnesses have not been released to the public. Yet.

What’s Happened to Ghislaine Maxwell?

As we wait for the names of her 35 intended witnesses to be revealed, let’s take a look at what else we know about Ghislaine.

Plus we haven’t heard anything from Ghislaine’s husband Scott Borgerson at all, which could indicate trouble between the two.

But then again he still has her $20 million dollars when the government last checked.

Who Was Involved with Jeffrey Epstein: Sarah Kellen

Who Was Involved with Jeffrey Epstein: Hello and welcome to this special episode of The Prince and the Pervert podcast.

My name is Lisa. I’m going to take you through some information that we found out about Sarah Kellen Vickers who, as many of you may know, was the boss of Epstein’s Palm Beach sex trafficking operation.

Listen to episode: Sarah Kellen Ghislaine Maxwell’s Deputy

Ghislaine Maxwell Sarah Kellen

Now it’s important to say from the outset that Sarah told The Sun she was a victim and quote;

  • I’m a victim of Jeffrey Epstein
  • I was raped and abused weekly
  • I’ve been made out to be such a monster, but it’s not true.

Her former PR representative also said that Sarah’s relationship with Epstein and Maxwell went on for years. Moreover, she is extremely traumatised by what she went through at the hands of Epstein.

She wasn’t the only adult woman who worked for Epstein and Maxwell.

Who Was Involved with Jeffrey Epstein

On a Lifetime documentary last year, Sarah was quoted as saying she was very sorry for any hurt she may have caused.

But how far is too far if you’re an alleged victim or when do you become a participant in the abuse?

Firstly, Epstein survivors Virginia Giuffre, Teresa Helm and Sarah Ransome are adamant Sarah is an abuser.

But was she given no choice? Was there blackmail involved?

Who Was Involved with Jeffrey Epstein

Was it a case, she no longer had any roots in the world, except for the small circle?

She may not have had anywhere else to go as her family and her community had rejected her.

But the most important thing here is Sarah was an adult throughout.

She pled the Fifth Amendment on the Epstein allegations.

Plus she was one of the beneficiaries of the much criticised Acosta Florida plea deal.

Who Was Involved with Jeffrey Epstein

So we may never know her full story about her time working for Jeffrey Epstein.
