Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite charged with aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse, has offered to renounce her UK and French citizenship in an attempt to secure bail.

The offer to surrender her foreign citizenship is the latest attempt by Maxwell’s lawyers to secure bail for their client. Maxwell, 59, has been denied bail twice, with a judge deeming her to be a flight risk.

Maxwell is being held in a jail in Brooklyn, New York, after being charged in July with helping Epstein, a convicted sex offender, recruit three teenage girls for sex. Epstein killed himself in a New York City jail in August 2019, while awaiting trial for numerous alleged sex crimes.

“If the court deems it a necessary condition of release, Ms Maxwell will formally commence the procedure to renounce her foreign citizenship,” her lawyers wrote in a court motion on Tuesday.

2. Either she thinks she can flee even w/o that citizenship, or she's afraid of getting "Epsteined"

while awaiting trial/cooperation.

10. The Guardian says in this article that 'Epstein killed himself..'

They did not even use the word 'allegedly'. It will be interesting to watch how the MSM moves on from this story as it fades even further down the memory hole.

11. Only UK and French citizenship?

Isn't Ghislaine also an Israeli citizen? If so, would she renounce that, too?

14. Ghislaine Maxwell makes third attempt at bail on sex charges

NEW YORK (AP) — Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite awaiting trial on charges that she recruited teenage girls for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse, says she’ll renounce her U.K. and French citizenships if she can be freed on bail, according to a court filing Tuesday.

Maxwell’s attorneys made the offer in a third try at getting Maxwell out of jail before a trial scheduled for July in Manhattan federal court.

A judge has previously rejected two bail attempts, including a $28.5 million bail release proposal in December.

As part of the latest bail proposal, defense attorneys wrote that they will put the bulk of the $22.5 million estate belonging to Maxwell and her still-unidentified husband into a special account to be overseen by an “asset manager” — a former federal judge and U.S. attorney from Georgia. The deal would set aside about a half-million dollars for living expenses and over $7 million for legal fees.
