Ghislaine Maxwell: the woman accused of helping Jeffrey Epstein groom girls

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: The Guardian

The Trump administration has made a habit of blaming the victims for the crimes they have perpetrated and are perpetrating.

The women who are being held to task in the child trafficking that organized crime has, and is conducting, are molls (and Martin Scorsece has dominated the image of "the moll", who have themselves been victimized as teens and forced to manage their operation as a means of deflecting prosecution if the facts were uncovered by the media. That is typical of how any sensitive mafia operation involving prostitution takes place. Any brothels will typically be managed by women, with armed men being everpresent.

Though Trump might not have been "complicit" in the operation and management of the ring, that does not get him a "get out of jail free" card. That SHOULD be obvious, but the media lapdogs are so blind as to fall for an obvious ploy be congressional Republicans to mute the affair.

From the article I referenced from "The Guardian":

"Maxwell, 57, the daughter of the late press baron Robert Maxwell, has repeatedly and vehemently denied allegations of involvement in a sex-trafficking network run by Epstein, who was awaiting trial in a New York prison when he died.

Prior to his death, Epstein denied federal charges of sex trafficking involving minors which could have resulted in a 45-year prison sentence. However he faced a mountain of evidence including testimony from alleged victims and documents obtained by prosecutors indicating an elaborate trafficking ring."

1. Trump knew all about Epstein's operations.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/us/politics/trump-epstein.html

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Mr. Trump told New York magazine in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Ghislaine Maxwell, Donald Trump, and Melania all knew about what was going on.

Facts (allegedly)
Jeffery Epstein's businesses were blackmail & sex trafficking.
Epstein introduced Melania to Trump.
Melania was a sex worker and both Trump and Epstein knew about that too.

Ghislaine Maxwell's life might very well be in danger.

2. Ghislaine Maxwell has dropped out of sight

Nobody has seen or spoken to her since Epstein was arrested in early July. Most likely she has fled the country, but who knows? Not the Guardian, that's for sure.

3. She should be scared for her life.

Especially after this happened, as well as many others. This was done to silence Epstein , and to intimidate others into being silent, or else. She knows too much . We're entering into what Putin has done in Russia, murders , poisonings, threats, making people criminals by way of abuse of power and corrupting of their government. Its happening here now.

4. There was a time when she

could have turned herself in to the authorities, and know she would be safe. Those days are long gone - at least for the last 3 years. The British authorities would keep her safe, and could refuse to extradite her. With Billy "Low" Bar on the case, we will likely never get to the truth.

5. Interesting point, but...

we're talking about a woman who's been manipulated and exploited since her teens. People can be turned into criminals by such treatment. Fact is the media is partly to blame, always blaming the victims for things that are ultimately the results of media propaganda. When prostitutes are portrayed in movies or on television, they're generally portrayed as savvy, well-dressed women, which clearly sets a trap for impressionable teens facing jobs at McDonalds or a trendy, fast-paced work environment, if they're lucky.
