Juror 50’s instagram post after the Maxwell trial

My name is Lisa Tait and with me today, as always, is my friend and podcast partner, Jen Tarran.

How are you, Jen?

Well, there’s lots of news out there at the moment.

After I finished editing, a heap of Maxwell court documents dropped in the middle of the night.

So these documents are included in the Ghislaine Maxwell case.

I’m still going to include the earlier documents that I wrap up in my documents. I will chat later on in this episode.

But these are the new ones that have dropped since we recorded yesterday.

So overnight documents from 609 through to 6 17 dropped.

I don’t think Ghislaine is going to be too happy.

Neither is Juror 50 so let’s have a look at these.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial: request denied.

Now the main document in this is document 610 which is an order from Alison J. Nathan, the judge and it reads:

“On January 19th 2022 the defendant filed a motion for a new trial pursuant to federal rule of Criminal Procedure 33.

On the basis that Juror 50 falsely answered a material question during voir dire and that had he answered truthfully, he would have been subject to a challenge for cause.

The defendant contends that the current paper records sufficiently supports her motion and should be granted without a hearing.

In the alternative, she requests that a hearing be conducted. She also argues that if a hearing is ordered, a broader hearing is required based on a news article that suggests a second juror was allegedly a victim of sexual abuse.”

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

In an opinion and order filed under temporary seal, the court denies the defendant’s motion for a new trial on the current record.

As explained in the temp sealed opinion and order:

Defendant’s motion on the current record relies extensively on statements made by Juror 50 regarding what occurred during jury deliberations that the court is prohibited from considering under federal rule of evidence 66 with regards to euro 50 statements that do not pertain to jury deliberations.

In order to resolve the motion on this record, the court would have to accept unsworn statements made to a media outlet as true and reach factual determinations that are not available on the current record.

Accordingly, for the reasons fully explained in the opinion and order,

a hearing is necessary to resolve the defendant’s motion because of the important interest in the finality of the judgments.

The standard for obtaining a post verdict hearing is high, the court concludes.

And the government concedes that the demanding standard for holding a post verdict evidentiary hearing is met.

As to whether Juror 50 failed to respond truthfully during the jury selection process to whether he was a victim of sexual abuse following trial,

Juror 50 made several direct, unambiguous statements to multiple media outlets about his own experience that do not pertain to jury deliberations and that cast doubt on the accuracy of his responses during jury selection during the fifties.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

Post trial statements are clear, strong, substantial and incontrovertible evidence that a specific non speculative impropriety, namely a false statement during jury selection has occurred.

To be clear, the potential impropriety is not that someone with a history of sexual abuse may have served on the jury.

Rather, it is the potential failure to respond truthfully to questions during the jury selection process that asked for material information so that any potential bias could be explored.

In contrast, the demanding standard for ordering an evidentiary hearing is not met as to the conduct of any other juror.

It sats:: ”The court denies the request to conduct a hearing with respect to the other Juries.

The court also denies the defendant’s request for a broader hearing and pre hearing discovery

(It) therefore orders that are hearing take place at which the court will question Juror 50 under oath.”

As well, the court further orders the jury fifties questionnaire be unsealed for the reasons explained in the opinion and order.

The court will email council for Juror 50 a copy of his questionnaire and a copy of this order.

The hearing will take place on March at 10 AM The court orders Juror 50 to appear in the courtroom,

906 of the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse, New York. So that’s the main gist of documents.

Now I was listening to a podcast by Nancy Grace quite a while ago, and somebody mentioned on that that the questionnaire was, Are you a victim of sexual abuse?

There are some survivors who do not believe that they can call themselves victims because there has never been a guilty verdict.

Sometimes that’s because charges were never laid.

Pure speculation that maybe he falls into that category,

I’m not sure.

So that was documents 6 10, which basically said: ”No, Ghislaine, you don’t get a retrial on this.”

There will be a hearing with Jury 50 under oath to determine what he got up to now.

He also lodged a document document 609.

It was a memorandum of law in support of motion to intervene and for release of seal jury questionnaire and transcripts on behalf of proposed Intervenor Juror number 50.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

Now that was put in by Todd Sporadic Esquire.

If you’ve been watching any TV lately, you know would be the attorney for Anna, for Anna the main character.

And it’s a true life story in inventing Anna, where this young Russian born woman ripped people out of heaps of money.

Now following on From that is documents 68, which is Scotty Juror fifty notice of motion to intervene and for the release of the documents.

So they go into more detail, which will happen.

He will get everything as the judge has ordered a hearing on March eight.

Now one of the other documents that was released overnight is a 66 page missive, and it was the previously sealed Ghislaine Maxwell motion for a new trial.

And it’s all about Juror 50 another jurors.

It just goes on and on.

I’m going to read it more closely later, and it’s mainly about Juror 50.

So there we go.

The argument that Ghislaine Maxwell was basing her demand for a retrial was all about Juror 50.

Now there’s been one or two people popping up saying,

Oh, it’s got nothing to do with Juror 50. It has So there we go anyway.

Let’s go back to the episode that we’d already recorded.

Yes, there certainly is. We’ve got a big episode for you starting, of course,with the news of the death of Epstein associate and “model agent”, Jean-Luc Brunel.

I say that in quotation marks because it was more a human trafficker. Jean Luc Brunel Jen.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

You have lots of documents.

There’s been a lot of documents drop.

There’s two rather hysterically funny ones.

Pretty sick ones, actually in the Prince Andrew case, but they’re from interlopers,

I talk about those.

And then there’s the Civil Defamation case that Virginia Giuffre has brought against Professor Alan Dershowitz, you know, Epstein’s long term lawyer and lawyer for the stars like O.J

Simpson and Trump and nude volleyballer.

We can’t forget that he’s dragging the chain in the production of documents from other court cases he’s involved in, which includes Netflix because of that series.

Yeah, it’s quite interesting, but we’ve also got information on Courtney Wild’s lawsuit.

That’s right. So Courtney Wild.

She is one of the Epstein whistleblowers who was assaulted by Epstein, and she’s been taking action in the courts to try and assert the rights of the young victims who were basically misled or not told about Epstein’s Florida plea deal.

You may remember last year Alan Dershowitz professor Harvard he got on the BBC went on a massive rant.

It was supposed to be about the Ghislaine Maxwell verdict, but he turned it into something else.

Well, now ITV did a piece about Virginia’s settlement with Prince Andrew.

And while it’s not dash on the camera,there are some strong links and conflicts of interest with who ITV used for one of their interviews.

And then, of course,you just found something on Jes Staley.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

Yes, so he was the bigwig at Barclays Bank who had a very significant association with Epstein.

And when I say that if you search through the Internet, you’ll see that they exchanged so many emails between the two of them,

Well, he stood down from Barclays,and now the bank is considering withholding millions of dollars in bonuses that he was entitled to under his contract.

Now he also went in holidayed a lot with Epstein, too.

All those people messaging me and Lisa telling us that the deep state have knocked him off so he can’t name names.

No, he’s suicided.

So we’re going to deal in facts here, not conspiracy theories.

But the most important thing here,Jen, I think, is how John Luc Brunel lived.

His life matters as much as how he died and survivors first, always so that is a North Star for our podcast.

So we consider what he allegedly did to those women.

He was arrested on December 16, 2000 and 20 at Charles de Gaulle airport trying to flee to Senegal, and since then he’s been held in the historic jail La Santa Prison.

Now it’s his jail was very, very old.

So a lot of people have been sending messages and those crazy conspiracy saying,

Oh, they turned off the cameras.

The cameras were broken.

I spoke to someone whose work has taken them into the prison system in Australia, asking a cameras everywhere.

Does this happen all around the world?

Or is this mainly a US centric thing?

And his response was depending on the age of the facility.

And as he said, a lot of places just don’t retrofit.

So there may not have been cameras.

We haven’t had a definite yes or definite know about whether or not he was housed in a unit or a room or award with a camera or not.

So everyone carrying on they turned off the cameras and killed him.

Listen, we’re dealing with the facts, yes.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

So the French model agent allegedly linked to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell was found dead in his prison cell from suicide.

According to French prosecutors and his own lawyers,

Brunel was in detention awaiting trial on charges including rape of a minor and sexual harassment.

Now, a lawyer for the Brunel survivors told The Guardian her name is Ann Claire Lejeune.

The news was quite terrible for them,adding they felt Brunel had quote left behind many secrets.

She noted the women’s quote, ”frustration and bitterness over not being able to obtain justice justice for the victims of Epstein because it had taken so much courage for them to be able to speak up and to be heard by the police.”

Now, Jen, did you know that he died on the same day as Prince Andrew’s 62nd birthday?

I doubt Jean Luc Brunel Hood that in his calendar.

No, I don’t I think it was a complete coincidence now.

Brunel’s lawyers suggested on Saturday that he killed himself.

In a statement, they described his distress at his incarceration and his repeated requests for our provisional release from the prison because he’s not a flight risk at all.

Jean Luc Brunel never stopped declaring his innocence.

They said his decision was not guided by guilt,but by a deep sentiment of injustice.

No, it was driven by his ego, this man just lying.

Epstein did atrocious acts and thought he could do it.

Thought he had the right to do it.

The last thing this old man wanted, just like Epstein was to have to sit in a court and be judged and told that they were guilty.

Their egos wouldn’t allow it.

Now, speaking of bail, one of the reasons why he wasn’t granted bail was Virginia Giuffre, who, you may know was suing Prince Andrew.

This is her statement.

The suicide of John Luc Brunel, who abused me and countless girls and young women, ends another chapter. I’m disappointed.

I wasn’t able to face him in a final trial to hold him accountable, but gratified that I was able to testify in person last year to keep him in prison.

So one of the survivors, Thysia Huisman, said:

“I’m in shock and it feels disappointing.

This is a completely different ending without any real justice for his victims now.”

It wasn’t just in Paris.

He was in trouble, not just the French legal system.

The Virgin Islands subpoenaed him on November 4th, 2020, so a couple of weeks before he tried to flee Paris.

So this was also weighing on his mind.

Now that subpoena lists a huge lot of demands for information for the Virgin Islands.

They want all documents relating to Epstein and Redacted name, redacted name, redacted name and redacted.

Name any and or financial transactions between Epstein and any Epstein entities.

Any and your travel to the Virgin Islands for any female that you or any modelling talent agency you were involved in organised details on his own travel to and from the Virgin Islands from the year 2000 onwards,

all communications with Epstein and any and all Epstein entities.

All agreements with Epstein or entities.

Identify any and all properties owned or used by yourself or your businesses.

That’s a big one because his house was raided the same day,

September 23rd, 2019, the same day as Epstein’s was rated. They went in at three p.m. To both places in Paris and worked overnight securing evidence.

Plus, they did his office. Now the subpoena continues.

All photos and videos of you on the island, all photos and videos of any females i his models or females he employed or organised to centre Epstein.

Any communications between Epstein regarding females sought by or provided to Epstein?

A catalogue of any brochures, info photos of any and all models employed by you.

So that’s thousands of women or your agencies.

All information about photo shoots and arrangements for those photo shoots in the Virgin Islands.

13 is recruitment of all models. All information and documents regarding that 14 or financial transactions to models or talent agencies.

15. A copy of any legal complaints newspapers or other media, such as articles that refer to any complaints of abuse filed against you by any individual, including females employed by you or one of your agents 16 legal matters regarding Jeffrey Epstein or his entities that if he had any communications about those complaints,

He had to hand them over and any immigration or visa documentation or communication in regards to the models or females.

So that was a huge, massive subpoena that hit his inbox.

And then a few weeks later, he’s trying to flee Paris to go to Senegal, where he couldn’t be touched by anybody.

So he had more than just the Paris arrest on his mind when he’s suicide.

Ghislaine Maxwell New Trial

Yes, because authorities did allege Brunel organised the transport and accommodation of young girls and women on behalf of Jeffrey Epstein.

And, as we know, Epstein had a financial stake in Brunell’s model agency, called EMC Squared.

I went through the Internet archive, and I found an interesting story from the Miami Herald and it is mentioning Virginia Giuffre a saying quote.
