Ghislaine Maxwell transferred from New Hampshire to Brooklyn detention facility

I didn’t realize that Ghislaine Maxwell had been sitting in custody in a New Hampshire jail for days! I thought that as soon as the FBI raided her New Hampshire property and arrested her, that she was transferred to a New York facility. But it’s smart – maybe? – that they kept her in New Hampshire for a little while. Maybe it was even safer! Maxwell got transferred to a Brooklyn detention facility yesterday. Keep Ghislaine Maxwell Alive 2020 Challenge.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the onetime girlfriend and alleged accomplice of accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, was transferred on Monday to a Brooklyn federal detention facility as she awaits her first appearance in a New York courtroom, according to a Bureau of Prisons spokesman.

Maxwell, who was charged last week by federal prosecutors in New York for her alleged role in conspiring with Epstein to recruit, groom and sexually abuse underage girls as young as 14, was arrested in New Hampshire on Thursday, July 2. She was transported to Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, according to Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long. He declined to comment further.

An attorney for Maxwell, Christian Everdell, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Maxwell, 58, has previously denied wrongdoing.

Federal prosecutors reportedly want a Friday bail hearing, which makes me wonder if any judge will actually SET bail for Ghislaine Maxwell, someone who has access to unlimited funds, someone who presumably has multiple passports and someone who has connections around the world from many powerful people and governments. I mean… how could they set bail? Her photo appears under the dictionary entry for “flight risk.”

Meanwhile, this was big news on social media yesterday – Fox News did the most to crop out Donald Trump from the widely circulated photos from Mar-a-Lago, where he was partying with Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew. The people who keep insisting that the Epstein-Maxwell situation is a massive Democratic problem… again, the Trump administration has done the most to thwart the investigation. AG Barr fired the US-Attorney for the Southern District to slow down the investigation. Trump hired the same US-A who gave Epstein the sweetheart deal in 2007-08. And now Fox News is trying to wipe Trump out of the narrative?

    There is no way this woman makes it to a trial. The powerful powers that be will make sure of it.

    • Lisa says:

      Over/under June 10th.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      News article said yesterday she tested positive for Covid. I’m not seeing that mentioned recently but I’m thinking the “hanged myself in a jail cell when no guard was looking” excuse is getting a bit over used. Might need to go another route.

      • AMM says:

        That was a fake news link. Someone did it as a joke, but I expect it to really happen anytime now.

      • Renee says:

        I look for a “Covid” related illness to take her out *eye roll* or cardiac arrest from “an underlying pre-existing condition”. They won’t use the fake hanging suicide route this time. It’s too obvious. There is no way Barr lets her anywhere near a deposition or trial.

    • Dtab says:

      Oh she is absolutely gonna get COVID…without a doubt. There is no way she is making it to trial

    • Mumzy says:

      Spin the wheel of non-suicide “cause” of death —- COVID, aneurysm, heart attack, stroke

    • Havatut says:

      Bets are on Dershowitz defense of “I was a victim of Jeffrey epstein blah blah”

  2. Ariel says:

    Did they even cut the unhinged racist criminal’s fingers out where they sit on Melania’s hip?
    That is not just a crop.
    No- they didn’t, once you see it in motion.

    Still, so much grossness.

  3. Vava says:

    Melania looks so smug in these photos…

    • Esmom says:

      Actually to me she looks barely conscious, leaning away from Trump and he seems to be propping her up. That could be pure projection on my part. I wonder what was really happening in that photo.

      • SomeChick says:

        I want to know who the dude on the left with the eyebrows and the cocktail is!

    • shanaynay says:

      She looks coked out

  4. Mumbles says:

    When Epstein got arrested there were a lot of jokes about whether he would make it to trial – jokes at the time, because we never thought the Powers that Be would be so ruthless and blatant in their power. Turns out they are. When I heard of his “suicide” I got chills….because it seemed like the Powerful were just thumbing their noses at us. I’m not sure she’s going to make it. May not be suicide….might be “coronavirus.”

    • Seraphina says:

      @Mumbles, spot on comment. All of it. Everything you said.

    • Lady D says:

      “we never thought the Powers that Be would be so ruthless and blatant in their power.” I’m getting so tired of being naive. It’s an exercise in constant disappointment hoping for the best in people. I honestly believed Trump’s actions before the election were enough to prevent his winning. I will say I am far, far less naive about this election. I’ve spent the past year preparing for his potential re-election.

  5. Mac says:

    Maxwell better have a “if something happens to me file” ready to drop if she is suicided.

    • Melissa says:

      We said the same about Epstein — they are clearly sociopaths and I don’t believe they care if anyone else gets caught or prosecuted. At some point Epstein knew he would never be free again, he had the opportunity to drop the goods (small window of course) and did not. She’s had months since he was murdered to make her deal for safety.

      • Christina says:

        Epstein and Maxwell didn’t/don’t care about justice or knocking out a corrupt system. Maxwell will be trying to stay alive and ease her own suffering, so this whole thing is a crapshoot. If giving up Johns gets her more time alive, there is a chance that the victims will get justice.

        If Maxwell dies, law enforcement may have evidence from the computers seized at the various properties. They will only go after people they can prove committed crimes. If they see sex tapes and other evidence, like logs, they will need to locate the victims and prove that the women were underage at the time and ID the perps. See the case of R Kelly, which isn’t finished yet.

        In my community, there were rumors of a teacher who was grooming and sexually assaulting girls at the middle school about 8-9 years ago; my kid was in 6th grade and attended the school. He was a very popular teacher, and one of the girls’ parents saw sexual texts on her daughter’s phone made with the teacher when the girl was in high school. The community rallied around the teacher: he was born and raised in the community and most kids and parents loved him. His computers were seized, and he committed suicide on the night that he was indicted. His supporters were heartbroken, and they berated the girls in local media and on Nextdoor. A local newspaper had a freedom of information act request percolating as of the time the news broke that his home was raided. About a year later, the FOA request was granted, and there was years of evidence, thousands of lewd texts, and photos of him with underage girls.

        Laws fucking need to change, but, even if there are laws to protect minors from grooming and rape, local men, women, and children will still slut shame and victim blame. This happened in the SF Bay Area.

      • Amelie says:

        Epstein deliberately updated and changed his will 2 days before he committed suicide to put all his assets into a trust in the US Virgin Islands. I think the Netflix documentary mentioned he left everything to his brother. He wouldn’t have done that unless he planned to take his own life. I doubt he would have done it if he thought he could get away with his crimes. He saw the writing on the wall and knew he was done for. He also did it as a last FU to his victims. He didn’t want any of them getting his money as they went after him so he placed his fortune out of jurisdiction in the US Virgin Islands.

        His updating of the will is one of the main reasons why I think he took his own life and there were no other people involved in his death. It just makes him look guilty as hell.

      • Christina says:

        Amelie, this makes sense. I go back and forth on if he killed himself or was murdered, but a last FU to the victims and the system?? Sounds about right. He considered those girls and young women inhuman and worthless.

        Looking away while your perp commits suicide is murder to me. They didn’t make sure that he stayed alive, and they could have. Lots of scum who commit property crimes and murder are watched closely until there is a conviction, but the victims here are female and powerless, and many men in law enforcement don’t care about rape and prostitution rings. In Oakland, the police were passing around an 18 year old girl who sold herself as a prostitute. I think she started when she was 16. Her mom worked for the police as a dispatcher. She seemed clearly mentally ill to me. Officers from multiple agencies were using her. They didn’t care. The mayor was trying to fire them all. She put a female police chief in charge.

        I’m just so tired of the misogyny throughout law enforcement and just about every place else.

    • Seraphina says:

      It would be smart to have an “if I’m dead” file ready to go to major newspapers when she accidentally commits suicide.

      • Lady D says:

        Be a lot smarter to let the masses know she has one, and they better pray for her continued good health.

      • Christina says:

        The comments about sending evidence someplace assume that Ghislaine cares about justice. She was also abusing minors, and she comes from wealth and privilege.

        Maxwell has no interest other than herself. She won’t throw anybody under the bus by putting secret files in media hands in case of death. She is of the swamp, not a cleaner of the swamp. I will be shocked if that happens.

      • Truthiness says:

        The blinds said she already had it in place, copies securely away from her. But if they can track her down I’m not sure how safe her plan B is.

  6. kelleybelle says:

    Everyone in this photo is vile. Read Ghislaine’s Wiki page and it will sicken you. She was a lot more than his “madam,” please. She is every bit the monster Epstein was.

    • Esmom says:

      I just started watching the Epstein documentary on Netflix and it’s chilling. Even the young girls he recruited knew he was a sick, sick man and yet he continued to operate in this manner and increase his wealth for decades. It’s really mind blowing and sickening to realize what happens in the darkest corners of society even as the rest of us try to adhere to moral codes and to live upstanding lives.

      • kelleybelle says:

        Yes, we try, don’t we? On at least one occasion a hospital visit was required for a girl who’d been abused by the two of them. Maxwell deserves jail just as much as Epstein did.

  7. MatildaStJames says:

    well, there are pics of Ghis and Epstein with a lot of people. Like the Clintons and other politicians and celebs.

    Everyone it seems was involved with them. It’s disgusting. And they will all get away with it.

  8. Allergy says:

    I find her smirk so evil. Hope everyone involved gets exposed. I’m really surprised she’s still alive.

  9. Ladykatan says:

    You know..

    Trump is right..

    We shouldn’t erase history.

    I propose we commemorate this photo of the President, First Lady, and the known two child sex traffickers In a statue and put in on the White House lawn, so we never forget to vote in every election.

  10. Chelsea K. says:

    I feel like she should be referred to as “Jizzlaine.”

  11. L4frimaire says:

    It’s really disgusting how certain corners of the British media are trying to paint this woman sympathetically, as some sort of victim who is “ loyal” to Andrew. Watching Epstein doc Filthy Rich, she is a horrible criminal person, who groomed and abused these girls to serve up to Epstein. I’m curious as to who corrupted whom, or were they just two of a kind? I think she was abused by her father, and I would not be surprised if she was trying to recruit girls in UK closer to the upper class social set. There is so much we don’t know, and never will, but no way was this limited to just American victims.

  12. Miss America says:

    I don’t understand why Ghislaine was in the US at all? You’d think she would have gone into hiding overseas ages ago where it’d take forever to extradite her, if at all even possible. Maybe she has so much blackmail on so many power people that she didn’t think she’d ever get arrested? But why take the risk if she is so wealthy she could have gone hiding in some far off place?
