On Thursday, the FBI took Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime friend, associate, and pimp of the late convicted pedophile and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, into custody in New Hampshire, according to The Washington Post:
“A grand jury indictment unsealed Thursday charged Maxwell, daughter of the late media tycoon Robert Maxwell, with conspiring to entice minors to travel to engage in sex acts, and perjury.
“Maxwell has been under investigation for months as a possible accomplice to Epstein’s history of sexual abuse of underage girls. Epstein, who committed suicide while in federal custody last summer, dated Maxwell for years, and the indictment charges she played a key role in grooming girls for him to abuse.”
Maxwell is believed to have extensive knowledge regarding the specific “tastes” of the men she is alleged to have provided underage girls to, including former President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and attorney Alan Dershowitz, all of whom have been linked to Epstein over the years.
But according to legal experts who have been watching the Epstein-Maxwell case since it first made headlines, the person who should be most worried about what Maxwell knows is none other than Donald Trump. Why? Two reasons: Trump was known to be close friends with Epstein, and his reelection campaign is already in serious trouble. A sex scandal this close to November could prove fatal to the president’s dreams of a second term. And it could also wind up leading to charges being filed against Trump after he leaves office.
Harry Litman, a former U.S. Attorney, noted:
Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss files charges against Epstein enabler Ghislaine Maxwell. Lots and lots of social elite have to be terrified: if she opts to cooperate, her little black book could inculpate a who’s who of bigwig assailants.

Attorney Luppe Luppen added that there are plenty of photos of Trump with both Maxwell and Epstein:

And CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, who is also a former federal prosecutor, pointed out that the case against Maxwell originated in the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York (SDNY):
SDNY just announced the Ghislaine Maxwell case – like the original Epstein case – is staffed by the Public Corruption Unit.
I worked at SDNY and did sex trafficking cases. They do NOT run out of Public Corruption – unless there is some potential angle against a public official.

It’s safe to say that a lot of very powerful people will be having trouble sleeping tonight, and one of them is Donald Trump, who could be on the verge of having all his sexual dirty laundry exposed for the voters — and a jury — to see.
