Shocking news for everyone that has been following the Jeffrey Epstein case: his former companion, sometimes mistress, and thought-to-be supplier of underaged girls, Ghislaine Maxwell, has been arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire this morning.
Maxwell, 58, has always denied being involved with Epstein’s illegal actions, though she has been directly named by multiple women. She is regularly accused of enabling and participating in their abuse.
Maxwell will face a federal judge today, where she is expected to face charges relating to conspiring with Epstein to abuse children, as well as perjury about her conduct. This arrest comes almost exactly a year after Epstein’s death.
Epstein was in jail facing charges of abuse against multiple young women when he took his own life, despite being on suicide watch. Friends with many high-profile politicians, judges, and celebrities, it was rumored that he was killed to silence him, and bury what he knew.
