Could Secret Spouse Be Part of Ghislaine Maxwell’s Legal Strategy? – One Theory

Inside Ghislaine Maxwell's Life on the Lam | Vanity Fair

Is Ghislaine Maxwell’s Secret Spouse Part of Her Legal Strategy?

Could Jeffrey Epstein’s accused accomplice use her secret spouse to hide money or bargain with prosecutors?

In a video hearing on Tuesday, prosecutor Alison Moe told Manhattan federal judge Alison Nathan that accused Jeffrey Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell has a spouse “whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services.”

Wait, she’s married? And won’t tell anybody to whom?

Town & Country reached out to a former prosecutor, James Zirin—a former assistant United States attorney, author, and television host—and a family law expert, Frederic J. Siegel— partner at the Connecticut-based family law firm Siegel & Kaufman—to see if this might all be part of a legal strategy.

What reasons could Ghislaine Maxwell have for not revealing the identity of her spouse?

Zirin: The most obvious and benign is that she’s trying to shield the spouse from press inquiry and notoriety. Other reasons, however, could include that he may have knowledge of where her assets are and of crimes that she may have committed.

Can prosecutors force them to talk?

Another Twist in the Epstein “Suicide” – Federal Judge Esther Salas Had Taken on DB Case Days Before Son, Spouse Shot

NJ Judge Esther Salas took on Epstein case days before deadly shooting

Four days before her son was gunned down and her husband was wounded, New Jersey federal Judge Esther Salas was assigned to handle a class-action lawsuit from Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The investors also claim in New Jersey federal district court that the bank made false and misleading statements about its anti-money-laundering policies.

The complaint alleges that Deutsche Bank AG “failed to properly monitor customers that the Bank itself deemed to be high risk, including, among others, the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.”

Salas was assigned to handle the suit, which plaintiffs led by Ali Karimi filed in US District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of investors who bought securities from the bank between Nov. 7, 2017, and July 6, CNN reported.

The company didn’t inform the investors it hadn’t fixed disclosure control problems — and wasn’t keeping tabs on clients like the convicted sex offender and two other banks involved in previous financial misconduct scandals, according to Bloomberg Law.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Legacy Lives On – The Arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell

Ghislaine Maxwell with Epstein in New York in 2005. Epstein killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell last summer.

Jeffrey Epstein Confidante Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested on Sex Abuse Charges

What to Know

  • Jeffrey Epstein confidante Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested Thursday morning in New Hampshire, law enforcement sources say
  • Maxwell will face charges that she conspired with the disgraced financier to sexually abuse underage girls
  • Epstein, a friend to presidents and captains of industry, died by suicide last August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges

Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and heiress who became a confidante of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and was later accused of involvement in his alleged sexual crimes, has been arrested by the FBI, two senior law enforcement sources tell News 4 New York.

She was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire around 8:30 a.m. on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse minors, and is expected to appear in a federal court later today, the sources say.

The six-count indictment in Manhattan federal court alleges that Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14 years old, going back as far as 1994.

“In some instances, Maxwell was present for and participated in the sexual abuse of minor victims,” the indictment says.

The daughter of media baron Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine was a one-time girlfriend of Epstein’s and was at the high-flying investor’s side for decades.

But she was also alleged to have helped Epstein groom teen girls for sex with the rich and powerful. One of those teens, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, leveled that charge against Maxwell in a 2015 defamation suit, as have a number of other women.

Jeffrey Epstein – An Empire of Corruption and Blackmail – Too Big to Fail Pt.1

Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Should Not Close the Case on His Sex and Blackmail Operation

The following reflect excerpts from an award-winning series authored by Whitney Webb, a MintPress News Journalist based in Chile. We believe that the death [murder – a theory] of Jeffrey Epstein should be a catalyst for allowing all of those involved in his sex-crime syndicate to be exonerated. We are therefore going to continue to publish.

Whitney Webb’s research is impeccable. There are accompanying podcasts to her articles as well.

Webb has uncovered scrubbed articles and headlines to investigate and piece together a highly organized crime syndicate involving multiple countries, numerous high ranking officials, members of our government,  Ghislaine Maxwell who, to date, has not been prosecuted, the girls lured in for sex and various spy organizations. Her fundamental question, at least in the following article is, why did he go from being characterized as a “property mogul” in the early years to being described as a “hedge fund manager” in the later years, and in rewriting the history of the formerly scrubbed documents.

We note that Ghislaine Maxwell has never been prosecuted for her involvement though should have been and all of the girls he traded as sex slaves. Since the untimely [murder] death of Jeffrey Epstein, she has not been seen.

Epstein Did Not Die by Suicide – Someone Just Looked the Other Way, but Why?

Two jail guards charged in connection with Jeffrey Epstein’s death, sources say

The guards face charges tied to falsifying records. The case will have no bearing on the determination that Epstein died by suicide.

 

Two guards at a prison in Manhattan have been indicted in connection with the investigation into accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, a senior law enforcement official said.

Michael Thomas and Tova Noel, who were on duty the night before Epstein was found dead by suicide Aug. 10, have been indicted by a grand jury with six counts tied to falsifying prison records.

The allegations are that Thomas and Noel sat at their desk, browsed the internet, and moved around a common area of the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan but never conducted any rounds that night.

The indictment says that from approximately 10:30 p.m. Aug. 9 until approximately 6:30 the next morning, when Epstein was found dead, the two never checked on him or any other inmate in the jail’s special housing unit.

The two are charged with falsely signing internal documents saying they did the checks and counts at 12 a.m., 3 a.m., 5 a.m., and that they did rounds at 30-minute intervals.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said the two “had a duty to ensure the safety and security of federal inmates in their care at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Instead, they repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction.”

The Associated Press reported Friday that federal prosecutors had offered a plea deal to two officers responsible for guarding Epstein the night of his death, but the officers declined the offer.

Epstein was arrested July 6 at an airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, as he returned from Paris on a private jet. He was charged with one count of sex trafficking conspiracy and one count of sex trafficking and faced up to 45 years in prison if found guilty.

He pleaded not guilty and was denied bail.

The indictment in his case alleged that he sought minors, some as young as 14, from at least 2002 through 2005 and paid them hundreds of dollars in cash for sex at either his Manhattan townhouse or his estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

He was not on suicide watch at the time of his death despite a possible attempt weeks earlier, multiple people familiar with the investigation told NBC News.

‘EPSTEIN DIDN’T KILL HIMSELF,’ FORMER NAVY SEAL BLURTS OUT ON FOX NEWS WHILE TALKING ABOUT MILITARY DOGS

A former Navy SEAL who was invited on Fox News to discuss military dogs, stunned news presenter Jesse Waters when he suddenly blurted out that notorious sex offender Jeffrey Epstein “didn’t kill himself.”

Mike Ritland, a K-9 trainer and the founder of Warrior Dog Foundation, appeared on Watters’ World on Saturday to discuss Conan, the heroic dog who helped U.S. troops take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the special ops raid in Syria last week, as first reported by Newsweek.

The non-profit organization, based in Commerce, Texas, is dedicated to helping military dogs who have completed their service.

At the end of the segment on Watters’ show, Ritland asked if he could offer a PSA to anyone considering adopting a military dog—but he also slipped in a theory about the death of convicted millionaire Epstein.

“The remarkable nature of these dogs and them being highlighted in the news creates a huge demand by people that frankly shouldn’t have them,” Ritland said.

“If you see the coverage and you decide I want one of these dogs, either buy a fully trained and finished dog from a professional or just don’t get one at all… and Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

“OK, thank you for that commentary,” Watters responded, laughing when he realized what his guest had said. “Maybe more on that later.”

Newsweek has contacted Ritland for further comment.

The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled Epstein died by suicide after he was found dead in his jail cell on August 10 with a bedsheet around his neck. He was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.

But conspiracy theories about the disgraced financier’s death were reignited recently after a forensic pathologist hired by Epstein’s family said some of the evidence suggests he was murdered.
