Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell charged with ‘conspiracy to entice minors’ in sex trafficking operation

Published

on

Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime associate of the late accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, is being charged with “conspiracy to entice minors” to travel and engage in “illegal sex acts,” according to a newly unsealed indictment.

The indictment specifically claims that Maxwell “assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims.”

Maxwell and Epstein both knew that “certain victims” were under the age of 18 at the time of their abuse, and the pair abused girls as young as 14 years old, the indictment claims.

The indictment also charges Maxwell with perjury and claims that she “repeatedly lied when questioned about her conduct, including in relation to some of the minor victims” when she testified under oath four years ago.

Maxwell was arrested by FBI agents on Thursday morning, and she is scheduled to appear in court later in the day.

‘Gullible’ Trump administration paid up to $500 million too much for these ventilators: investigators

Published

Citing “evidence of fraud, waste, and abuse,” a congressional subcommittee investigating the federal government’s purchase of $646.7 million worth of Philips ventilators has asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General to launch its own investigation of the deal.

The House subcommittee launched its review after ProPublica stories in March and April showed how a U.S. subsidiary of Royal Philips N.V. received millions in federal tax dollars years ago to develop a low-cost ventilator for pandemics but didn’t deliver it. Instead, as the coronavirus began spreading around the globe and U.S. hospitals were desperate for more, Philips was selling commercial versions of the government-funded ventilator overseas from its Pennsylvania factory. Then in April, despite having not fulfilled the initial contract, the Dutch company struck a much more lucrative deal to sell the government 43,000 ventilators for four times the price.

Pastor slams Trump for lying about a ‘dystopian dreamscape’ if Biden wins: ‘Pandering to the worst level’

Published

As President Donald Trump loses ground with evangelicals realizing he's not actually a Christian, the right-wing has scrambled with the only strategy they have: try to claim Joe Biden, a devout Catholic, is somehow not a Christian.

"Nobody ever would ever even think possible because he's following the radical left agenda," said Trump in Ohio. "Take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He's against God."
