Nothing what so ever?

3 second google of CNN, I get this, which was posted 3 hours ago on CNN.

Not on the front page of their website, thanks for that.

Maybe victim is not the right word but we need to understand why people do what they do to prevent it.
Sure, but casting her as a victim and not any of the others involved (because she's a woman?) makes no sense. Maybe some of the others were just as scared of losing status or felt forced into it by peer pressure or 'blackmail'. She made her choices and I think it's more likely she did what she did (if she did) because she enjoyed it. She enjoyed the power, the status, the friendships with powerful people, and, of course she enjoyed the sex.

Nope. She is not. She had a USSD15 million home in New York (apparently). She had millions in cash in her bank account.

To me, that does not sound like a victim. It sounds like someone trading young women as commodities.
I get the idea they also trapped many into this network. Honeypots. Sick.

Donald Trump

Alan Dershowitz

Ghislaine Maxwell

We don’t know what her relationship with her family was like. Perhaps she too was abused as a kid? Abused people generally become abusers too.
This is a common misconception. Abused people do not, in fact, generally become abusers, too. On the contrary, having known the suffering, they often live their lives taking particular care never to abuse anyone.

What is true, however, is that many of those people who do become abusers, have previously been abused.

It's not one and the same set.

You’re right. My phrasing was incorrect. Despite my impeccable language skills, I too am prone to error.

Also, another thing, before I’m flamed again. From the Netflix documentary, there was a girl brought to the island who didn’t want to do anything more than give massages (regular massages not code word massages) but who had no issues with accepting payment for recruiting other girls to come to the island knowing what they’d be expected to do. Who was that girl? Was it Victoria Giufre herself?

She was the youngest of 9 children and grew up in a Jewish home. Friend of my English cousin worked at the house in the 1980s and 1990s as a cook and said there was seldom a raised voice or what she called "shenanigns" in the house

Robert Maxwell was a polite, well-spoken Jewish gentleman and was always courteous to his wife and children. It was obvious to her that Ghislane was his favourite, mainly due to her being extremely bright. She excelled at school and went up to Oxford entirely on her own ability. He was immensely proud of her. She was very careful when a teenager bringing friends home, as there was a security person whose job it was to weed out undesirables, both boys and girls. During this period, there were disagreements between Ghislane and the retired policeman who worked at the house, but nothing that went beyond normal teenage rebellion. She might have had a privileged upbringing, but was not spoilt as many other rich youngsters were in England at that period

In this photo, Ghislane is to the left of Robert Maxwell in a white two-piece suit

The cook, Beatrice Evans died in 2017, at 88

Some of those people are extremely likely to be guilty of wrongdoing (like Harvey Weinstein), others like Pinker and Hawking I think are probably innocent.

However you are misreading the news quite badly. Whilst everyone looks with glee for someone they don't like being associated with Epstein, the real story is the fact that that the FBI didn't investigate a pedophile.

I agree, the FBI and judiciary that were involved in the cover up also need to be investigated.

‘Sex slave’ alleges ‘cover-up’ is protecting Jeffrey Epstein
February 7, 2015


The blonde who accused pervert billionaire Jeffrey Epstein of turning her into a teenage sex slave and forcing her to sleep with his powerful pals claims in new court papers that a “major cover-up” is protecting the convicted sex offender.

“Because nothing is being done, it makes me think Epstein was right when he told me he had so many people in his pocket,” Virginia Roberts, 31, said in court papers filed Friday in Florida.

McCarthy Demands Answers from ABC on Epstein Story Coverup
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter Sunday to ABC News demanding answers surrounding allegations that the network killed a 2015 story about dead alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, journalist Megyn Kelly said.



Leaked tape: ABC News killed an interview with an accuser of Jeffrey Epstein
The tape suggests that ABC News stopped its own anchor from reporting on Epstein’s crimes in order to preserve access to the royal family.


News of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sexual assault and trafficking crimes involving his circle of famous friends could have broken years earlier but was quashed by television network executives, according to video released by a right-leaning activist group Tuesday.

In the video, obtained by Project Veritas, ABC News anchor Amy Robach complains to a producer off-air that she had convinced one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, to speak on the record about her allegations against Epstein and others reportedly involved in Epstein’s web of sex trafficking — including former President Bill Clinton, attorney Alan Dershowitz, and Prince Andrew. But, she continues, ABC refused to run the story in order to keep access to the British royal family.

“We would not put [the Epstein story] on the air. First of all, I was told, ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story,’” she says on the tape. “Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”

You’re fired: Heads roll over Jeffrey Epstein ‘cover-up’ leak
There has been a quick response after a TV anchor was caught out in a leaked video making a stunning admission about disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.


A US television worker has been sacked after bombshell footage was leaked of a rival network news anchor lamenting an alleged cover-up involving paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

A CBS News staffer believed to have had access to the tape of ABC News anchor Amy Robach raging against her employer was fired over the leak, according to multiple TV sources.
The woman was reportedly a former employee of ABC News who had moved on to work at rival network CBS News, according to the New York Post.

ABC executives alerted CBS News about the staffer “as a courtesy” a TV source told the publication.
Two sources familiar with the matter confirmed the staffer had been fired, New York Magazine reports.

Underage girl forced to have sex with Prince Andrew, US court document claims
Papers part of 2015 civil court case by girl, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, against Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell




The sex offender Jeffrey Epstein allegedly tried to gather incriminating material against Prince Andrew by forcing an underage girl to have sex with him, according to newly released court documents.

The papers released by a court in New York say the alleged encounter took place on the late US financier’s private island in the US Virgin Islands. A document claims Epstein instructed the girl, referred to as Jane Doe #3, but known to be Virginia Roberts Giuffre, to “give the prince whatever he demanded and report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse”.


Epstein allegedly sexually trafficked the girl to powerful people to “ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political and financial gain, as well as to obtain potential blackmail information”. They included “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”

The papers, part of prior litigation, also contain the claim that Andrew tried to lobby the US on behalf of Epstein to help secure a “favourable plea arrangement”.

The papers are part of a 2015 civil court battle between Epstein and his former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, and Giuffre, now 36, who accused the couple of sexual abuse. She also claimed she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew, which he vehemently denies.

Lawyers for two other alleged victims in the 2015 civil case, referred to as Jane Doe #1 and #2, requested the release of documents showing the alleged lobbying by the Prince.

They are seeking “documents regarding Epstein’s lobbying efforts to persuade the government to give him a more favourable plea arrangement and/or non-prosecution agreement, including efforts on his behalf by Prince Andrew and the former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz”.

It is claimed in the unsealed papers that an island orgy was one of three occasions when Jane Doe #3 was forced to have sex with Andrew. The other locations were Maxwell’s London flat and and in New York.
