"Let's hope the Federal Detention Center in Brooklyn is more secure than the one in Manhattan where Epstein was held."

Both are under the control of two of Trump's enemies, Governor Cuomo (who has his own sordid past to consider), and Mayor DeBlasio.

Babak - agree.

PG Wodehouse, though, wasn't an apologist for them. He merely used them as props to construct his fantasy world. As soon as one reads the Jeeves books as reality they fall to pieces - what the hell was a man such as Jeeves doing running baths for an idle young layabout? Such questions may not be posed or the illusion shatters, just as one does not poke at the stage props to find out whether they are solid.

And given that the world of the twenties and thirties aristocrats was for many of them a world of ennui and pointlessness the books call not merely for the "suspension of disbelief" but also sometimes for the suspension of distaste.

His best writing is in the golfing short stories - "The Clicking of Cuthbert" is pure verbal fun and poses no such questions. Whether a style that is so heavily dependent on satirising writers long forgotten and stereotypes no longer current can still work today is another matter.

I suspect the Prince is a total creep but didn't say so because it's always difficult to be sure if one only knows of such people as public figures. "Great Game" indeed! One must be a fool or a sadist to take such notions seriously today.

Since they are facilities of the federal Bureau of Prisons, ho are they "under the control" of these two creeps?

Funny how the indictment says she participated in the sex acts with Epstein yet is only charged with lesser charges of perjury and her role in enticing them to cross state lines to have sex with Epstein.

Seems the weaker charges will make bail more likely.

Also, limiting the period from 1994-1997 before Clinton and Dershowitz were involved with Epstein is awfully convenient.

Barrs father hired Epstein in 1974 to work at the posh Dalton school. Barr himself was counsel at the law firm representing Epstein in 2009. Small world.

Curious, in another case concerning a 2006 victim the judge ruled the day before she was arrested that evidence against GM be destroyed because it was acquired illegally.

And no mug shot. For all we know she is waiting for the hearing in a plush suite.

Cant say for sure whats going to happen to GM. I’d guess bail, a long wait for a trial after the election, or a plea that nails some lesser people involved and she gets a slap on the wrist.

K Battery: PL is correct it is a federal prison under the control of Trump's Attorney General. There have been reports of inmate-on-inmate violence there. Maybe one of Epstein's fellow baby-rapers will try to use that as a cover for getting rid of Ghislaine before she starts singing. Lots of buzz going around that she will be offed at the direction of either MI-6, Mossad, Hillary's hitman, or even a Trump mob buddy. Take your pick.

One thing for sure:
LIndsay Sue Graham was not involved with teenage girls.

Can't she be charged under the Mann Act?

Colonel,

The last place they need to keep Maxwell in is NYC. It is loaded with Israeli Intelligence as well as their 'operations' personnel, and at their beckon call are their American born helpers who think they're doing good when they help the Israeli government for better or worse. NYC and it's surrounding areas are full of Israeli safe-houses also which makes a Federal hunt all the more difficult, if such a situation happens.

The Israeli Intelligence apparatus is quite 'networked' in NYC and its surroundings.

If I had the difficult job of keeping her alive, I'd be using the 'nations' here in the U.S., taking safe-haven on their soil, nobody gets in or out their areas without their knowing about them. They have quite a few Nam vets to call on when their skills are needed.

Colonel,

Thanks for the correction. Come to think of it, one of the creeps, Cuomo, might prefer she live to testify, since there is a chance Trump might be involved.

JP,

Yeah, lots of ways she can get dead.

Voatboy

Sir,
Some Voat users speculate that Ghislaine Maxwell was actually taken to Gitmo by U S Marshalls. Some aviation enthusiasts claim that unusual aircraft flights are consistent with this theory. Furthermore if Maxwell is appearing only over video link, she might be anywhere with good Internet access.

She was born in France which gives her all protections from extradition from France. Last I read she was in France. Why would she crawl into the mouth of the lion when she could have stayed in France. Was she "rendered" and "arrested" in NH?

I have been puzzling over this question and the interlocked question as to how she got back into the US since border controls would have recorded her presence no matter what passport she used. Perhaps she never left the US? Or perhaps French special ops "rendered" her to us on an extra-judicial basis? They have a number of units that could do that. They are quite capable of doing something like that for "reasons of state."

It would make better sense than keeping her in a jail in NY.

this is one of the silver bullets that shot hillary and the democrats down in 2016.first appeared on 4chan.worth a read

I followed pizzagate on 4chan.it was one of the silver bullets that shot the Clinton Democrat party down.
pure propaganda cleverly introduced just before the elections by the trump team.4chan has been castrated by the way,along with Facebook etc.

the fact is that what happened in 2016 on social media might have got trump elected but the real price has not been politics but freedom of speech.

team trump is trying the same playbook again with Epstein first and now maxwell but the biggie is still to come in august/ September

keep an eye open for it.

anon,

Hilary shot down her own campaign. Biden is not campaigning at all; Bernie has slunk off to enjoy his capitalist system rewards, while he still can. The rest of the left are worse than the 13 dwarves Trump defeated in 2016.

SSS NNN

The absurd handful of crimes in the court paperwork after
DECADES of PUBLICLY committing sex crimes that would fill
hundreds of pages is signal this is just a Psyop and she
will be "dead" by July 20th at least. The BBC has already
let you know how the "death" will be done...
