(Slay News) – Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell has revealed that she played a key role in establishing Bill and Hillary Clinton’s global foundation.
In a desperate bid for leniency, Maxwell said in a court filing she deserves a lower sentence for her crimes because of her “history of philanthropy” and “charitable work,” including her work “helping develop the Clinton Global Initiative.”
“Ms. Maxwell has always worked hard,” the court filing states.
“Her many educational, occupational, and avocational accomplishments include becoming an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), a helicopter pilot, a submersible pilot, a banker; partnering with the Cleveland Clinic to establish a telemedicine platform to enable people in remote areas to obtain quality medical treatment; helping develop the Clinton Global Initiative; and supporting a variety non-profit and charitable organizations.”
Her lawyer wrote: “She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world.
“She has supported friends and family through tough times and personal crisis and currently is assisting women in her unit at the MDC.
“She has endeavored to contribute to society… by helping launch the Clinton Global Initiative.
“The treatment imposed on Ms. Maxwell was unnecessarily and intentionally degrading and threatening.
“While in isolation, a high-ranking prison guard told Ms. Maxwell that there was concern that she would be shot by a sniper.
“Putting aside the reason and propriety of dispensing this alarming information, the diminution of security concerns resulting in her transfer to general.
“On information and belief, one of the female inmates in Ms. Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms. Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep.
“The inmate who made the threat has been moved to the SHU (special housing unit), presumably to protect Ms. Maxwell.”
“This incident reflects the brutal reality that there are numerous prison inmates who would not hesitate to kill Ms. Maxwell – whether for money, fame or simple ‘street cred,’” the court filing stated.
From The Daily Mail:
The claim puts renewed spotlight on the links between Maxwell, Epstein, and Clinton.
Epstein claimed to have helped Clinton launch the CGI and the former President flew on his private jet – known as the ‘Lolita Express’ – dozens of times.
One photo taken as the jet was about to depart shows Maxwell standing with Clinton on the plane’s steps, the two smiling warmly.
The friendship between Epstein, Clinton, and Maxwell dates back to the mid-1990s at least when they were all photographed together at the White House.
Clinton has denied any wrongdoing in relation to Epstein and said he never visited his private island in the Caribbean as some reports claimed.
