As RedState has covered over the last two days, Jeffrey Epstein’s lieutenant, Ghislaine Maxwell, has finally been arrested after nearly 25 years of suspicion by law enforcement. Why it took this long is a question that will have to be answered as the facts unfold. Maxwell is accused of not only recruiting women in a sex trafficking scheme, but of participating in rapes herself.
One woman has come forward to tell her story, speaking to Fox News as “Jane Doe” and saying she will testify against Maxwell if given the chance. The details are revolting.
EXCLUSIVE — A woman who claims Ghislaine Maxwell raped her dozens of times – beginning when she was just 14 years old – says she is willing to take the stand and testify against Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Jane Doe, who wishes to protect her identity, said Maxwell sexually abused her beginning in 1991 in Florida. She said the abuse continued until she was 16.
Maxwell was arrested Thursday on federal charges for facilitating and participating in sexual abuse acts with minors,
“She did rape me. I would say it’s more than 20 or 30 times,” she said. “She is just as evil as Jeffrey Epstein … She is a rapist.”
Jane Doe claims years of sexual abuse came to an end only after she became pregnant with Jeffrey Epstein’s baby. At age 16, she had an abortion.
Maxwell’s role was apparently to “coach” these women she would recruit. Maxwell was also present for many of the rapes that took place at the hands of Epstein.
She claimed Maxwell was not always in the room when she was abused by Epstein, but that when she was it was to teach her how to satisfy the convicted pedophile.
“It was her more or less, coaching,” Doe said. “Do it this way and do it that way, because once you become a model, this is what they’re going to expect from you.”’
The woman currently known as Jane Doe is one of eight women being represented by Attorney Jordan Merson. He says he has corroborated Doe’s story with her grandparents, who helped keep the woman hidden after Maxwell threatened to have her killed if he ever talked.
Suspecting that she had told her grandparents about the abortion, and fearful she would talk to authorities, Doe says, Maxwell, Epstein and others gang-raped her one last time as punishment. “Ghislaine was a part of it,” Doe said. “I was drugged.”
After the rape, Doe said, a driver with a gun drove her to her home. “I was dumped off in my grandparents yard naked, and was told that I wouldn’t come back alive the next time,” Doe said.
The Epstein case has become so politicized that any mention of it elicits partisan claims. Democrats insist this is going to bring Trump down (there’s zero evidence Trump is involved in any of this). Meanwhile, Republicans bring up Bill Clinton (because the media certainly won’t), who did actually fly on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” and so close to the now dead pedophile that a joke portrait of the former president in a dress hung on Epstein’s wall.
While the latter should indeed be sweating a little more today, it’s still important to remember that Maxwell is a monster all on her own. Any cooperation deal should not let her off the hook. If the DOJ truly has her dead to rights, and I suspect they do given how long this took, they’ll be plenty of leverage to have her talk while still sending her to jail for a very long time. This woman is pure evil and needs to pay a price for her crimes. Hopefully she takes a lot of other bad actors down with her. With Epstein dead, she has no reason to protect him anymore. Anyone who went to that island and/or flew on Epstein’s plane has to have known what was going on. That includes Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and yes, Alan Dershowitz, who is out with an article today defending Maxwell.
While these figures may be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, the rest of us are perfectly within our rights to judge them now based on what we know.
