Back in July, a judge ordered Ghislaine Maxwell to turn over a trove of secretive documents in the next two weeks, including financial records revealing the “funding received from the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation.”, according to The Gateway Pundit and several other sources.
The documents in question were originally filed in connection with alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts lawsuit against Maxwell. Giuffre, who claims she was held hostage as Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell’s “sex slave” and trafficked years, sued Maxwell for defamation in 2015.
While the defamation suit ended in an undisclosed settlement in 2017, Maxwell’s July 2020 arrest made the documents submitted in the suit public interest.
A tranche of records revealing the funding Maxwell received from the Clintons’ charities may shed light on why the former president has taken at least 26 flights on Epstein’s private jet “Lolita Express.”
“From January 2012 to the present, produce all documents concerning any source of funding for the TarraMar Project (Maxwell’s nonprofit) or any other not-for-profit entities with which you are associated, including but not limited to, funding received from the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Foundation (a/k/a William J. Clinton Foundation, a/k/a/ the Bill, Hilary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation), and the Clinton Foundation Climate Change Initiative,” a section of U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska’s ruling reads.
Maxwell’s attorneys have repeatedly tried to seal personal records ahead of her upcoming sex-trafficking trial, arguing “continued unsealing of these materials implicates her right to a fair trial in her pending criminal case.”
Judge Preska was not persuaded. The judge demanded Maxwell additionally turn over correspondence from a “secret” email account she used to communicate with Epstein while Giuffre was trafficked. Maxwell previously breached a court order to hand over the “undisclosed email account.”
“Ms. Giuffre is aware of two email addresses that appear to be the email addresses defendant used while Ms. Giuffre was with defendant and Epstein, namely, from 2000 – 2002. Defendant has denied that she used those accounts to communicate, but she has not disclosed the account she did use to communicate during that time, nor produce documents from it,” Preska said. “Having taken a particularized view of the documents, the court concludes that each document reasonably had a tendency to affect the court’s ruling and is thus a judicial document.”
Other documents that will be unsealed include Maxwell’s tax returns, balance sheets and financial statements for companies she controlled, a motion for protective order filed by Maxwell’s attorney showcasing their efforts to limit the amount of financial information from being turned over.
Maxwell allegedly helped Epstein recruit children for Epstein to sexually abuse between 1994 and 2004. In 2019, Epstein was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking but was denied bail ahead of his trial. He mysteriously died in jail and his death was ruled a suicide.
Documents unsealed in Maxwell’s case last July contained salacious allegations a slew of Epstein accusers were made in depositions.
Giuffre detailed the “constant” orgies that Maxwell and the late pedophile engaged in on Epstein’s private Caribbean island, in an unsealed 2015 deposition.
“There’s just a blur of so many girls,” Giuffre told attorneys.
“There were blondes, there were brunettes, there were redheads. They were all beautiful girls. I would say the ages ranged between 15 and 21,” she said, adding that she “100 percent” witnessed Maxwell have sex with other women there.
Court Orders Feds to Disclose Identities of Ghislaine Maxwell’s “Unnamed Co-Conspirators”
In September, it was reported that a federal judge ordered the feds to disclose the identities of Ghislaine Maxwell’s “unnamed co-conspirators.”
Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime pal of Bill Clinton, is currently in federal custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York awaiting trial.
Maxwell worked as Jeffrey Epstein’s pimp for years and the DOJ knew they were running girls as young as 12 but they refused to act.
Last month Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe asked US District Judge Alison Nathan, an Obama appointee, to mask the names.
In a three-page ruling, Judge Nathan ordered the government to “disclose all co-conspirator statements it intends to offer at trial no later than” Oct. 11, Law & Crime reported.
Law & Crime reported:
Federal prosecutors must disclose the “identities of any unnamed co-conspirators” whose names they plan to refer to at trial to Ghislaine Maxwell, a federal judge ruled on Friday.
“The government argues that there is no risk of surprise because ‘it currently intends’ to introduce the alleged co-conspirator statements of only two individuals,” the order states. “At the same time, however, the Government proffers that it ‘may change its view as it prepares for trial.’ […] The Court thus finds the Government’s reassurance hollow and insufficient to ensure that the Defendant may adequately prepare her defenses.”
“Moreover, the Government has not alleged that disclosure here would create ‘potential danger to co-conspirators’ or risk ‘compromising continuing investigations,’” the judge wrote. “It merely argues that disclosing the identities risks ‘harm to the Government from restricting its proof at trial.’”
Judge Nathan was skeptical about this claim.
“The Government provides no explanation for this purported harm and none is apparent to the Court,” she wrote. “Thus, the Court finds that this concern alone does not outweigh the risk of surprise to the Defendant in this case or the need for the parties to litigate co-conspirator issues in advance of trial to ensure the absence of delay.”
Who are the unnamed co-conspirators?
“The identity of Epstein’s unknown co-conspirators has always been intriguing. He ran in powerful circles. One name that always comes up is Bill Clinton. This summer, unsealed records from Maxwell’s civil case implicated Bill Clinton being around “2 young girls” at Epstein’s island.” attorney “Techno Fog” wrote in a Substack.
Judge Questioning If Evidence from Accuser Can Be Used
According to the New York Post, a judge in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial questioned whether one of the teen accusers could testify as a “victim” — because she was not a minor when she was allegedly abused, according to court filings.
The unidentified “accuser-3” had previously alleged that Maxwell had recruited her in London in 1994 to massage pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, knowing he’d force her to have sex, the indictment said.
But the accuser was 17 at the time — a year above the UK’s age of consent of 16, according to a motion to dismiss her testimony filed by Maxwell’s legal team late last month.
She also could not prove that she was underage when she traveled to the US and “allegedly engaged in sex acts with Epstein,” the filing insisted.
“There is no evidence that she was a ‘minor’ when any of the alleged sex acts took place,” insisted attorneys for Maxwell.
If true, that means that “any sex acts that occurred were lawful,” Maxwell’s attorneys insisted in the Oct. 29 filing — despite conceding the accuser insisted she was sexually abused by the late pedophile.
Maxwell’s team is seeking to completely dismiss her evidence, or at least bar any suggestion that she was a “minor” who suffered “sexual abuse.”
Judge Alison Nathan on November 3rd “asked the Government to provide its position as to whether alleged ‘Victim-3’ could be considered a ‘victim’ of the crimes charged in the indictment for any legal purpose.”
The prosecution’s response “does not address this issue,” Nathan wrote in an update.
“While acknowledging that the Court’s request may have been unclear, the Government is now ORDERED to file a supplemental letter responsive to the Court’s question,” she wrote.
“For the sake of clarity, the Government is directed to state its position as to whether this anticipated witness could be deemed a victim of any of the crimes charged in the indictment for any legal purpose,” her order stated.
It was not immediately clear if the response was filed as of that Tuesday morning.
The accuser was one of four in the indictment accusing well-connected British media heiress Maxwell of grooming and procuring underage girls for Epstein.
She was not named in the filings, but has alleged that Maxwell introduced her to Epstein “knowing that Epstein would engage in sex acts.”
“During those massages, Epstein sexually abused” her, the indictment said.
However, in their filing, Maxwell’s legal team said that her claim of sexual abuse is “not because she was underage and incapable of consent by law, but because her ‘subjective experience’ of these incidents was that they were ‘traumatic, exploitative, and abusive.’”
“If Accuser-3 is allowed to testify that she felt she was ‘sexually abused’ by Epstein, the jury will naturally assume that the alleged sex acts were illegal, when they were not,” the lawyers insisted.
Maxwell has been locked up in a notorious Brooklyn jail for more than a year awaiting her day in court. She has pleaded not guilty and fought unsuccessfully several times to be released on bond pending trial.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s Family Appeals to the United Nation for Her Release from Jail
The family of Ghislaine Maxwell, the close friend and colleague of Jeffrey Epstein, is asking the UN that she be released from jail pending trial due to her horrid living conditions. Lol.
The New York Post is reporting:
Ghislaine Maxwell’s siblings are now petitioning the United Nations in a bid to get the infamous accused sex-trafficker released from jail pending trial — after at least four failed bail applications.
The petition, submitted Monday to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, was filed by international criminal lawyers François Zimeray and Jessica Finelle on behalf of Maxwell’s three sisters and three brothers, according to a copy provided to The Post.
The lawyers argue that Maxwell’s “abnormally rigorous” lock-up conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn are horrid, and thus unlawful and discriminatory.
The petition seeks for the UN to call on the US government to release Maxwell pending trial and to urge an independent investigation into her “arbitrary detention.”
Maxwell was involved with Jeffrey Epstein where they are accused of running a child sex ring for the rich and famous.
Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in jail and although declared a suicide many believe he was murdered. This may be why Maxwell wants out of jail.
Maxwell was accused of having an affair with Bill Clinton.
She also would know how many times Bill Clinton and others flew to Epstein’s famous ‘Orgy Island’.
I and many others are pretty sure Maxwell is not safe no matter where she goes.
No Plea Deal
“None were communicated,” Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey responded.
Maxwell was in the courtroom Tuesday, exchanging greetings with her team of lawyers and occasionally sipping from a disposable coffee cup as her legal team hashed out trial logistics with the group of four prosecutors.
Among the issues raised was that Maxwell’s attorneys have subpoenaed a lawyer who represents a victim in the case, identified in the indictment against Maxwell as “Minor Victim-4.”
Nathan ordered Maxwell’s attorneys to submit briefs about the potential witness — and said she would not allow the testimony until she has reviewed the briefing.
According to the indictment, Maxwell met the victim when she was 14 years old at Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion sometime around 2001.
She then “groomed” the teen by discussing sexual topics in front of her and being present when the teen was naked in the massage room of Epstein’s house, prosecutors charged.
Maxwell also sent the teen lingerie and helped arrange appointments for her to give Epstein sexualized massages, according to the indictment.
Her attorneys did not discuss why they want the victim’s lawyer to testify at the trial.
The trial is expected to kick off with opening statements on Monday after more than a year of preparation.
Maxwell is charged with six counts for allegedly procuring underage girls for Epstein to abuse from 1994 through 2004.
She’s pleaded not guilty and has remained in a Brooklyn federal lockup since her arrest in 2020.
It is officially reported that Epstein “killed himself” in a Lower Manhattan jail cell in 2019 after being arrested on sex-trafficking charges.
