…And nothing of value was learned.
Ghislaine Maxwell, a former confidante of sex trafficker and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, has been found guilty on five of six counts linked to helping the late financier groom and recruit teenage girls for abuse.
The British socialite was convicted on Wednesday, including on the most serious charge of trafficking a minor for sex, following six days of deliberation by the jury. She has yet to be sentenced, but initially faced up to 80 years in prison over the six counts.
Maxwell was found not guilty on a charge of enticing an individual under the age of 17 – identified only as Jane to protect her identity during the trial – to travel with the intent of engaging in sexual activity. However, she was found guilty of a total of five other sex crimes involving the trafficking of underage girls or conspiring to do so, according to a verdict sheet obtained by Law Crime News.
After the verdict was delivered, Maxwell reportedly showed little emotion, and was seen pulling down her face mask and pouring herself a glass of water, according to Reuters.
Both Epstein’s and Maxwell’s trials included explosive allegations that minors groomed by the couple had numerous interactions with prominent public figures, including former US presidents and British royalty.
YEAH BUT WHAT WAS THE POINT OF IT????
WHY WERE THEY DOING THIS???
WHY IS NO ONE ASKING THAT QUESTION???
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE AN ENTIRE TRIAL AND NOT ASK WHAT THE MOTIVE FOR THE CRIME WAS???*
I didn’t follow the trial. I don’t care about “oh my God the girl was only 16 and she didn’t even know what a penis was this is such a horrible grooming even though no one knows what the word ‘grooming’ even means or has tried to define it.”
I don’t care.
This whole Maxwell trial was part of the cover up.
I will go back and listen to someone who followed the details and see what interesting bits came out, but this far, this is the only interesting bit I’m aware of…
FOX News, December 6, 2021:
The witness told the tale of how the FBI searched Epstein’s $77 million New York home to the jurors. The agents buzzed but after no answer, they forced their entry to the residence and started performing a protective sweep to make sure there was no threat to them.
On the third floor, in a dressing room, they found a safe that they pulled out from a closet and brought in a saw to open it. There were several items in it that the FBI photographed such as more “binders with CDs, various items of jewelry, external hard-drives, lose diamonds, large amounts of U.S. currency and passports.” However, they needed a second search warrant in order to retrieve those items. So, they returned a few days later, except that the items that had been removed from the safe were missing. An attorney for Epstein then returned all the items to the agents.
Literally, the entire rest of the trial – as far as I’m aware – was just “oh my, the poor innocent hookers.”
