According to the FBI, Ghislaine Maxwell –a woman accused by many women of helping procure underage sex partners for Jeffrey Epstein – has been arrested,
Maxwell lived for years with Epstein and was his frequent travel companion on trips around the world. She has been taken into custody in New Hampshire, said Nicholas Biase, a spokesman for the US attorney’s office.
An indictment made public on Thursday said Maxwell
“assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse” girls under the age of 18.
Epstein killed himself in a federal detention centre in New York last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Much speculation on whether Epstein actually killed himself has spawned 100 conspiracy theories.
Maxwell was accused by many women of recruiting them to give Epstein massages, during which they were pressured into sex.
The indictment included;
Counts of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and two counts of perjury.
Maxwell has previously repeatedly called the claims against her
One Epstein victim, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, claimed that Maxwell arranged for her to have sex with the Queen’s son, the Duke of York at her London townhouse.
Prince Andrew has denied her story.
Maxwell was described in a lawsuit by another Epstein victim, Sarah Ransome, as the
of Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking enterprise.
The lawsuit alleges that she oversaw and trained recruiters, developed recruiting plans and helped conceal the activity from law enforcement.
Epstein & Maxwell’s old friend Donald Trump must be wondering this morning if she will keep quiet about what she knows?
