U.S. prosecutors urge judge to reject Ghislaine Maxwell’s bail offerPosted by Annie May / December 19, 2020
U.S. prosecutors have urged a federal judge to reject Ghislaine Maxwell’s massive bail offer, arguing that she deserve to stay in prison. According to her attorneys, Ghislaine Maxwell is losing weight and her hair as a result of the harsh conditions of her confinement. As a result, she has put together a whopping $28.5 million bond, put up partly by her husband––a husband she has only just now publicly admitted having.
Maxwell stood trial for her role in Epstein’s crimes back in 2016, and those transcripts have just been released. They show her as basically denying everything and being combative.
The prosecution’s theory of the case against Maxwell is that she groomed girls for Jeffrey Epstein. She, meanwhile, has other plans. She’s trying to get herself taken out of solitary confinement and place in general population of the Brooklyn jail where she’s being held. In and of itself, that’s not that interesting. But when you consider the following, it is highly interesting.
Although Jeffery Epstein’s death was ruled officially a suicide, there are big questions about that. The guards who were supposed to be watching him were, allegedly, asleep. And, the prison where Epstein was held was also, allegedly, nearly “suicide proof.”
Conspiracy theories began almost immediately after Epstein’s death. Denizens of the internet (particularly Twitter and Reddit) were of one mind about the suicide: that it was orchestrated to keep Epstein from publicly implicating powerful people involved in his alleged sex-ring.
The flames of conspiracy were fanned when Epstein’s representatives hired Michael Baden, a pathologist for famous deaths, to do his own autopsy. Worse, even before Baden has had his chance to do an autopsy, the state autopsy discovered broken bones in Epstein’s neck.
So with that context, Maxwell’s bid to get moved to general population looks like an effort either to 1) orchestrated by anyone but her, so that she can get killed before she exposes her coconspirators, 2) orchestrated by her so she can get herself killed before she has to testify.
