One of the most important people in the Jeffrey Epstein case, Ghislaine Maxwell, is ready to disclose all the big names who made connections with the convicted sex offender.
Maxwell was arrested and charged with sex trafficking of minors for the late financier. Since her arrest, social media has been buzzing with a lot of reactions and questions, especially regarding the people that were associated with Epstein.
Steven Hoffenberg, a former business associate of Epstein, told Page Six that Maxwell is “going” to reveal the names of everyone who made financial agreements with the convicted sex offender.
“She is going to be naming some big names – not only in terms of those who abused underage girls at Epstein’s parties – but also those who made financial agreements with Epstein or benefited from his generosity, including flying on his plane and staying at this homes,” Page Six quoted Hoffenberg as saying.
The former associate also revealed that the arrest came as a shock to Maxwell because she thought she was “untouchable” and would be protected by the people or organizations that she helped before.
“Ghislaine thought she was untouchable – that she would be protected by the intelligence communities she and Jeffrey helped with information: the Israeli intelligence services, and Les Wexner, who has given millions to Israel; by Prince Andrew, President [Bill] Clinton, and even by President [Donald] Trump, who was well-known to be an acquaintance of her and Epstein’s,” Hoffenberg told the media outlet.
However, another associate who has worked with Maxwell, Laura Goldman, insisted that she (Maxwell) will talk about everyone except Prince Andrew because she considers him a “real friend.”
“Andrew helped launch Ghislaine into the New York social scene when she was nothing after the death of her father. She always saw him as a real friend,” Goldman told Page Six.
On July 2, the FBI arrested Maxwell, the longtime friend and alleged accomplice of Epstein. Sources told NBC that Maxwell was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire on multiple charges of conspiracy to sexually abuse minors. The charges alleged Maxwell assisted Epstein in recruiting and grooming several girls as young as 14 dating back to 1994.
Epstein allegedly sexually exploited as many as a “dozen” underaged girls from 2002 to 2005. The late financier pleaded guilty in 2008 to the procurement of minors for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution. He was sentenced to 13 months behind bars.
In July 2019, Epstein was arrested again on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. He died by suicide in jail on Aug. 10, 2019.
