Ghislaine Maxwell, the accused co-conspirator in Jeffrey Epstein’sinfamous alleged child sex-trafficking scheme, got something on Friday that other detainees haven’t since the coronavirus pandemic struck: an in-person visit from her lawyers.
The New York Daily News reported on Friday that Maxwell’s lawyer Christian Everdell and another member of the legal team were spotted walking into the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, bringing legal papers with them. The report promptly sparked outrage among attorneys who said they have been fighting for months to ensure that detainees who aren’t wealthy can safely meet with their attorneys in jail; meanwhile, Ghislaine Maxwell—of all defendants—was the “first in-person federal jail visit in the city since the start of the coronavirus pandemic,” according to the Daily News.
Sean Hecker, a partner at the law firm Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP, called the in-person visit “[a]bsurd & unjust.”
“We’ve been litigating for the Fed Defenders of NY to obtain a safe, in-person visiting option for many months. MDC detainees have been waiting up to 6 months for such visits. And BOP-MDC decides that the 1st such visit should go to a wealthy British socialite? Absurd & unjust,” Hecker said.
Some messages have to be conveyed in person, in whispers….

I’m beginning to wonder how many twisted members of the power elite are mixed up in pedophile circles or going to bat for persons at the top, once thought of as “untouchable”. The curtain is beginning to be pulled down by a person who looks a little bit better than Toto did …
I want to see them all exposed… and I don’t want to be called a conspiracy theorist for thinking who they might be because I’ve long suspected who these sickos are.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

At first I was afraid it would be one of Hillary’s Bimbo Squad Lawyers there to convey in person threats.

Either Maxwell better be careful, or else a deal is being struck. Of course Maxwell is privileged. Imagine how much dirt she has on the Dirty Powerful People. And yeah, a visit from a Clinton lawyer would be frightening indeed. What Maxwell knows goes way past being one of Bill’s “bimbo explosions”. IMO.

Outraged about what? They forgot what country they are in? Par for the course for The Haves.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
