Former friend of Ghislaine Maxwell alleges Maxwell has Epstein sex tapes
A former friend of imprisoned Ghislaine Maxwell claims that the Jeffrey Epstein madam has secret surveillance tapes that she’ll use as evidence to cooperate with federal authorities, according to a story from the UK’s Daily Mail, which extensively but anonymously quotes the source. Each room in Epstein’s houses were wired for surveillance, presumably to spy on underage girls and the men having sex with them.
Federal authorities are holding Maxwell in conjunction with her activities acting as procuress of underage sex victims for financier Jeffery Epstein.
The Daily Mail story said that when cops raided Epstein’s house previously, “they found thousands of graphic photos that included images of underage girls and a safe filled with compact discs labeled ‘nude girls’, according to authorities.”
“The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirreled away could end up being her get out of jail card if the authorities are willing to trade,” says the Daily Mail’s source.
“She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers.”
Some of the twisted — and twisting—movers and shakers were identified in a New York Post article yesterday to include: former President Bill Clinton; Prince Andrew; former U.S. Senator George Mitchell; former Gov. of New Mexico Bill Richardson; and former U.S Treasury Secretary under Barack Obama, Larry Summers.
It’s unclear, however, why the authorities wouldn’t already have the stash of surveillance tapes since the authorities raided Epstein’s home previously.
The fallen financier died under mysterious circumstances while in federal custody in New York.
One of the lead federal attorneys on the case is Maurene Comey, the daughter of fired-FBI head, James Comey. In court, daughter Comey blamed the lack of video evidence in Epstein’s death on a technical problem at the jail where he was being kept in isolation.
That James Comey’s daughter would be assigned such a high-profile case with so little experience has caused some concern.
From Los Angeles Magazine: “Maurene Comey being among the federal prosecutors on the case has raised eyebrows among NYPD detectives assigned to the task force. One detective close to the case told Los Angeles that appointing Comey, an Assistant U.S. Attorney with no experience in human trafficking cases and one with close ties to a bureau that’s come under fire for the handling of the Epstein case in Florida, has an air of ‘impropriety.’”
Although authorities have evidence accumulated from raids at several Epstein properties — including his private island, dubbed by locals as “pedophile island”—the New York Post says prosecutors are keeping open the possibility of a plea deal with Maxwell.
As the person closest to Epstein, Maxwell likely could help prosecutors go after some of the men who participated in the underage sex trafficking scheme.
Maxwell faces a sentence of 35 years if convicted of the charges alleged by federal prosecutors in the indictment.
“Maxwell enticed minor girls, got them to trust her, then delivered them into the trap that she and Epstein had set for them,” says Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Audrey Strauss, who was recently appointed by President Trump.
“She pretended to be a woman they could trust, all the while she was setting them up to be sexually abused by Epstein in some cases, by Maxwell herself.
“Today after many years, Ghislaine Maxwell finally stands charged for her role in these crimes.”
