FACTS

    Ghislaine Maxwell, an associate and friend of former socialite billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested by the FBI on Thursday for charges of involvement with his sex crimes. Maxwell is said to have bribed young girls into sexual involvement and entrapment dating back to 1994. She is charged with six counts and has denied all charges.

    “Maxwell assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18.”

    OPINIONS

    The death of Epstein, who allegedly killed himself in prison, sparked worldwide accusations that “Epstein didn’t kill himself” – implying that he was murdered as a cover up by those involved in his sex-trafficking ring. Already, a #MaxwellDidntKillHerself hashtag is trending, with one user saying, “She’s about to be Epsteined.”

    “Epstein got a crooked, sweetheart deal years ago that protected his co-conspirators, like Maxwell,” said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), referring to Epstein’s plea deal in which he was only sentenced to 13 months for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in 2008. He is part of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has pushed for the Justice Department to investigate the Epstein plea deal.

    Accusations and speculations abound regarding the registered sex offender’s involvement with many powerful figures in society – including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Prince Andrew, Hollywood elites, and even President Trump. Trump, who called Epstein a “terrific guy” in 2002, later said “I had a falling out with him. I haven’t spoken to him in 15 years.” Bill Clinton has denied having any knowledge of Epstein’s abuses.

    Dozens of women have accused Epstein and Maxwell of sexual abuse. One victim said she waited 20 years for charges to be made:

    “It’s the best news I’ve ever gotten in my life. I don’t have to hide anymore…This means the world. This is justice. This is what justice looks like. I’ve never had it. It’s so beautiful.”
