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.

The BBC has apologised for interviewing Alan Dershowitz, the lawyer who helped Jeffrey Epstein stay out of prison in 2008, and one of the key associates accused of sex trafficking by by Virginia Giuffre, regarding the outcome of Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial.

The BBC brought on Dershowitz without properly explaining his intimate connection to Epstein, giving the impression that he was an impartial correspondent.

The network announced Dershowitz as just a “constitutional lawyer”:

After public outcry, the BBC was forced to apologise and vowed to “look into how this happened”:

Remarkably, Dershowitz himself hit back, claiming that it was “entirely appropriate” for the BBC to interview him:

Dershowitz has denied Giuffre’s claims and sued her for defamation in 2019.

    Former Clinton Chief Aide: Bill Went To Epstein’s ‘Pedo Island’

    Claims Clinton couldn’t stay away from Epstein

    A former senior aide to Bill Clinton has claimed that the former President did indeed visit Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious island, despite repeated denials, and that his daughter Chelsea Clinton also had a relationship with Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

    Doug Band, who previously accused Chelsea of using Clinton Foundations funds to pay for her wedding, made the claims in an interview with Vanity Fair.

    “Band said he had no idea about Epstein’s sex crimes back then but got enough bad vibes that he advised Clinton to end the relationship,” the report notes.

    It continues “Clinton continued to socialize with Epstein and take his money. In 2006 Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton made more than two dozen trips on Epstein’s jet around this time, Epstein’s flight logs show.”

    “In January 2003, according to Band, Clinton visited Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St. James. Band said it was one of the few trips he declined to go on in his time with Clinton,” the report further notes.

    Band notes that Ghislaine Maxwell was invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding in 2010, despite the fact that it was then known that Epstein had committed sex crimes involving underage girls.

    The report notes:

    Chelsea had ties to Epstein and Maxwell, Band said; he showed me a photo of Bill and Chelsea posing with Epstein and Maxwell at the King of Morocco’s wedding. Chelsea remained friends with Maxwell for years after the press revealed Maxwell was a close associate of Epstein’s. For instance, Chelsea invited Maxwell to her 2010 wedding at the Brooke Astor estate in Rhinebeck, New York, after Epstein had pleaded guilty in Florida to procuring sex from a minor.

    Band says that there was one major reason Maxwell was at the wedding. “Ghislaine had access to yachts and nice homes. Chelsea needed that,” the former aide notes.

    Band says in the interview that it was only in 2011 that he began to tell Clinton staffers to cut Maxwell out of the picture.

    “I knew in telling everyone to stop including Ghislaine that Chelsea and her father would be very angry. It made it harder for them to justify being close to her,” Band says.

    Band’s claims that Bill Clinton visited the notorious ‘pedo island’ dovetail with previously unsealed court documents in the Ghislaine Maxwell, which revealed that a witness claims to have seen the former president there with Epstein, Maxwell and “two young girls”.

    The documents also echo claims previously made by a former worker on Epstein’s island in a Netflix documentary.

    The claims run contrary to denials by Clinton that he ever visited the island, which was reportedly the site of multiple sexual assaults of underage women by the convicted pedophile Epstein and his elite guests.

    Lawsuit: Epstein Cited Friendship With Bill Clinton To Carry Out “Vicious, Prolonged Sexual Assault”

    “When I chose a seat on the jet, Jeffrey told me that his good friend, Bill Clinton, always chose to sit there.”

    Documents made public as part of a lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein’s estate have alleged that the billionaire cited his ‘friendship’ with Bill Clinton as a way of intimidating a fifteen year old girl into sleeping with him.

    The Documents, identifying the victim only as ‘Jane Doe’ claim that Epstein carried out a “vicious, prolonged sexual assault” on her in 2004 after trafficking her on the infamous ‘Lolita express’ to his New Mexico ranch.

    “Epstein made clear to Jane Doe 15 how powerful he was. He made a point of mentioning that he was close with Bill Clinton,” the documents note.

    “When I chose a seat on the jet, Jeffrey told me that his good friend, Bill Clinton, always chose to sit there,” the accuser has claimed.

    The documents allege that dropping Clinton’s name was Epstein’s way of conveying “how powerful he was and how helpful he could be in assisting Jane Doe 15 with her future goals, such as paying for college” as long as she went along with his perverted desires.

    The lawsuit also alleges that Epstein told the girl, now in her 30’s, that he liked women to sleep at his feet, which “made her immediately think of slaves.”

    The development comes on the heels this week of never before seen photos emerging of Clinton receiving a massage from Jeffrey Epstein ‘sex slave’ Chauntae Davies, who was just 22 at the time, adding to the already bursting portfolio of questionable connections Clinton shared with the billionaire pedophile.
