Ghislaine Maxwell Could Be Bailed Because of Coronavirus
Leaving open risk that she could try to flee the country.
Ghislaine Maxwell could be bailed because of coronavirus according to a former federal prosecutor, leaving open the risk that the alleged sex trafficker could try to flee.
At least 55 inmates have staff have tested positive for COVID-19 at the Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn where the girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein is currently being held.
Maxwell’s lawyers have already argued that the former socialite is at “significant risk” of catching coronavirus unless she is allowed to leave the facility.
“I think this one is a close case. Epstein had no chance at all at bail. She’s in a very different position,” said Jaimie Nawaday, who previously worked for the Southern District of New York (SNDY).
“All bail arguments look a little bit different now given Covid-19. That’s definitely in her favour,” she added.
Nawaday believes Maxwell isn’t a flight risk because she didn’t attempt to immediately flee after Epstein was arrested last year.
While it would be virtually inconceivable Maxwell could flee to another country given the surveillance she would still be under on bail, the former socialite still presumably has numerous powerful friends who may take a risk to help her, especially if she possesses information which could be used to blackmail them.
Former SDNY prosecutor Jennifer Rodgers asserted that Maxwell was indeed a flight risk due to these factors.
“Maxwell has wealth, multiple passports, strong connections outside of the US, and a strong incentive to flee given the serious penalties she faces. The argument that she is a flight risk is strong,” Ms Rodgers said.
“Unless there are underlying health issues that haven’t been reported, Maxwell is healthy and not old enough at 58 to fall in a high-risk group, so I don’t think the Covid crisis will work in her favour,” she added.
As we previously highlighted, Maxwell purportedly possesses secret sex tapes that would expose powerful Epstein acquaintances, a bargaining chip she hopes to use to secure a plea deal.
Epstein himself reportedly was considering the same tactic in order to get a reduced sentence, but he was found dead weeks later.
Maxwell is due in court on Tuesday for her arraignment.

“That Cretin Never Advised Me On Anything Whatsoever”: Musk Responds To Epstein Subpoena
Update (2230ET): Musk has replied news that he’s been subpoenaed in the US Virgin Islands lawsuit against JPMorgan over their relationship with Epstein.
“This is idiotic on so many levels,” said Musk, adding “That cretin never advised me on anything whatsoever.“
“The notion that I would need or listen to financial advice from a dumb crook is absurd.”
Lastly, Musk claims that JPMorgan “let Tesla down ten years ago, despite having Tesla’s global commercial banking business, which I then withdrew. I have never forgiven them.”
Elon Musk was issued a subpoena by the US Virgin Islands as part of its lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase over the bank’s alleged facilitation of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, a court filing revealed Monday.
According to the filing, the Virgin Islands has attempted to serve Musk since late April, because Epstein “may have referred or attempted to refer” Musk as a client to JPMorgan.
The USVI hired an investigative firm to try to locate an address from Musk, and also contacted one of the CEO’s lawyers, who in the past has waived the requirement of him being personally served with legal documents in past federal cases, according to the filing in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. -CNBC
“The Government contacted Mr. Musk’s counsel via email to ask if he would be authorized to accept service on Mr. Musk’s behalf in this matter but did not receive a response confirming or denying his authority,” reads the filing.
JPMorgan is accused of servicing approximately 55 Epstein accounts between 1998 and 2013, years after his 2006 arrest for soliciting minors in Florida.
Meanwhile, the US Virgin Islands has also been unable to subpoena Google co-founder Larry Page in connection with its investigation into Jeffrey Epstein, according to federal court filings.
In a motion filed last week by the USVI Attorney General, process servers have attempted to reach Page at four different addresses – none of which were ‘valid.’
“The Government made good-faith attempts to obtain an address for Larry Page, including hiring an investigative firm to search public records databases for possible addresses,” reads a filing. “Our process server attempted service at the addresses identified by our investigative firm, but discovered the addresses were not valid for Mr. Page.”
As such, prosecutors are asking the court to allow Page to be summoned via Alphabet, Google’s parent company, as Page still serves on its board.
Page’s whereabouts are largely unknown, though he was said in December to have spent the bulk of the COVID pandemic on one of his growing number of private islands – some of which are within the US Virgin Islands.
Page purchased Hans Lollik and its smaller neighboring island, Little Hans Lollik, in 2014 for $23 million. -Daily Mail
“Larry Page – the co-founder and co-owner of Alphabet Inc. (Google LLC’s parent company) – is a high-net-worth individual who Epstein may have referred or attempted to refer to JPMorgan,” reads a filing in the case.
As Ben Bartee notes in PJ Media;
It seems there are two potential explanations for Mr. Page’s disappearing act: either he himself doesn’t want to testify because of personal fears of what crimes it might implicate him in, or someone or something else doesn’t want Mr. Page discussing what he knows about Jeffrey Epstein’s activities.
I recently made a half-serious petition for Elon Musk to slap a Twitter “red check” on all known Jeffrey Epstein associates. When this ordeal is said and done, there might be a new Silicon Valley tech overlord to add to the list.
The subpoena efforts are part of the ongoing Virgin Islands prosecution of JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, implicating the highest level of multinational banking as potential accomplices in the years-long trafficking ring.
CEO Jamie Dimon in an interview Thursday said he was “so sad” the bank had any business relationship with Jeffrey Epstein — but denied the firm is legally liable for the dead predator’s sex trafficking.
Dimon also said, in the televised interview with Bloomberg, that if JPMorgan had known everything that has become public in recent years about its former customer Epstein “we would have done things differently.”
What sad propaganda.
If anyone believes that a multinational banker like Jamie Dimon is psychologically capable of regret over facilitating immoral/illegal activities on behalf of his clientele, I have oceanfront property in Montana to sell you.This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
WSJ: Former Israeli PM and Head of Israeli Military Intelligence Ehud Barak Visited Jeffrey Epstein’s Apartment Monthly
Former Israeli Prime Minister and head of Israeli Military Intelligence Ehud Barak visited Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City apartment dozens of times between 2013 and 2017, documents obtained by the Wall Street Journal reveal.
“After Epstein was arrested in 2019, photos were published in newspapers showing Mr. Barak, the Israeli politician, entering Epstein’s townhouse in 2016,” WSJ reported.
“The documents provide new details about his scheduled meetings,” WSJ continued. “They show that between 2013 and 2017, Epstein planned at least three dozen meetings with Mr. Barak. They had appointments every month for 11 consecutive months starting in December 2015, the documents show.”
Mr. Barak told the Journal he was introduced to Epstein in 2003 by Shimon Peres, another former prime minister of Israel, at a social event with U.S. dignitaries, and that he would regularly visit Epstein when he traveled to New York. “Quite often, I came to the townhouse with my wife,” Mr. Barak said. Mr. Peres died in 2016.
Mr. Barak also took flights on Epstein’s private jet, the documents show. In January 2014, he met Epstein at his Palm Beach mansion and then they flew together to Tampa, where Epstein dropped him off and continued on to New York.
“I flew only twice on his airplane, together with my wife and Israeli security detail,” Mr. Barak said. He said he remembers the trip in Florida was to visit a U.S. military installation in Tampa.
“I never participated in any party or any other improper event around [Epstein], and never met him with girls or minors, or even adult women in improper context or behavior,” Mr. Barak said.
Barak was photographed “hiding his face” while entering Epstein’s New York City townhouse in 2016.
Barek didn’t say he was with his wife after getting exposed by the Daily Mail but did claim that he “never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls.”
Epstein “entered a partnership worth millions” with Barak in 2015.
Pro-Israel billionaire Leon Black, who funded Epstein together with pro-Israel billionaire Les Wexner to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, “scheduled more than 100 meetings with Epstein from 2013 to 2017,” the WSJ reported.
Epstein also met with former US Secretary of the Treasury Larry Summers after his conviction for child solicitation:
Lawrence Summers wanted $1 million to fund an online poetry project his wife was developing. The former Treasury secretary and onetime Harvard University president turned to Jeffrey Epstein.
“I need small scale philanthropy advice. My life will be better if i raise $1m for Lisa,” Mr. Summers said in an email to Epstein in April 2014, referring to his wife, Elisa New, a Harvard professor. “Mostly it will go to make it a pbs series and for teacher training. Ideas?”
Epstein replied that they could meet in Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Summers invited him to dinner, according to a trove of documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Two days later they made plans to meet at The Fireplace, a cozy restaurant in nearby Brookline, one of several meetings the two men scheduled that year.
In 2016, a nonprofit linked to Epstein donated $110,000 to Ms. New’s nonprofit, which develops video content about poetry, according to tax records.
Billionaire LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, who was caught staging a false flag operation with fake Russian bots to influence the Alabama Senate election in 2017, visited Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedophile Island,” Epstein’s records show.
Hoffman has been using his wealth to pour money into electing pro-Israel Democrats, fund the E. Jean Carroll’s rape lawsuit against Donald Trump and work with George Soros to censor the internet.
From The Wall Street Journal:
[Reid] Hoffman, the LinkedIn co-founder, has apologized for his interactions with Epstein, including inviting him in 2015 to a dinner in Palo Alto with Silicon Valley leaders. After Epstein was arrested in 2019, Mr. Hoffman said he had met with him to help raise funds for MIT at the request of the then director of MIT’s Media Lab, Joi Ito.
The documents reveal that Epstein had plans for Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Ito to visit his private island in March 2014 and in November 2014. On the second date, Epstein planned to travel with both men from Palm Beach to the island for a weekend and then fly together to Boston.
When the venture capitalist had a flight scheduled to land late at night in New York on Dec. 4, 2014, Epstein arranged for Mr. Hoffman to stay overnight in his townhouse, the documents show. The following morning, Mr. Hoffman was scheduled to attend a “breakfast party” with Epstein, Mr. Gates and others, according to the documents.
Mr. Hoffman told the Journal he only once visited Epstein’s island residence, Little St. James, for an MIT fundraising trip with Mr. Ito. He said he regrets ever meeting with Epstein and his last interaction with Epstein was in 2015.
“It gnaws at me that, by lending my association, I helped his reputation, and thus delayed justice for his survivors,” Mr. Hoffman said in an email. He said he met with Epstein to discuss science projects at universities. “While I relied on MIT’s endorsement, ultimately I made the mistake,” he said, “and I am sorry for my personal misjudgment.”
Mr. Ito said in an email: “Reid attended a few fundraising events at my request, including one trip to Little St. James, after I confirmed to Reid that Mr. Epstein had been an approved donor target for MIT in accordance with university rules and regulations.”
Mr. Hoffman here is the real victim, folks!
I guess it’s just a coincidence that Epstein was in bed with the former Israeli Prime Minister and head of Israeli Military Intelligence, was funded by pro-Israel billionaires and was giving large donations to the man who Netanyahu wanted to run the Bank of Israel.
Epstein must have been working for the Russians!This post was originally published at Information Liberation
Video: Bill Gates Again Acts Weird When Asked Directly About Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein
Why is he smirking?
Bill Gates was once again asked directly by a reporter about his history with now deceased elite pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and once again Gates reacted oddly.
In an interview with ABC Australia, the reporter Sarah Ferguson went there, asking Gates if he has regrets consistently meeting with Epstein in the past “against [his wife] Melinda’s advice and wishes.”
“You’re going way back in time, but yeah, I will say it for the over 100th time, yeah, I shouldn’t have had dinners with him,” Gates responded with an odd smile.
“Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people. Is that what Melinda was warning you about?” Ferguson followed up, as Gates appeared unconfortable at the line of questioning.
“No, I mean its… No, I had dinner with him, and that’s all,” Gates awkwardly responded.
When Ferguson asked Gates if he regretted the “relationship” between the Gates Foundation and Epstein, Gates dismissed the notion, stating “There never was any relationship of any kind.”
Odd that, because Gates had several meetings with Epstein, and flew on Epstein’s notorious ‘Lolita Express’ private jet.
The New Yorker also revealed in 2019 that Epstein worked with Gates to funnel $2 million dollars to MIT for unspecified projects, donations that the research lab tried to cover up.
All of this happened five years AFTER the sex trafficker was convicted of soliciting a minor.
Melinda Gates is on record as saying “I did not like that [Bill] had meetings with Jeffery Epstein. I made that clear to him. I also met Jeffery Epstein exactly one time. I wanted to see who this man was and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.”
“He was abhorrent, evil personified,” Gates’ now ex-wife told CBS mornings host Gayle King, adding “I had nightmares about it afterward. That’s why my heart breaks for these young women. That’s how I felt, and I am an older woman. He was awful.”
Last time Gates was asked about Epstein he fixated on the fact that “he’s dead now.”
While in Australia Gates was present at the Australian Open Tennis tournament, where he watched Novak Djokovic storm to victory.
