#1 Difficult indeed if she's been granted immunity from prosecution by the government. No mention made of that possibility in the Politico piece. Shocking no ?

#2 What if the girls willingly offered their services for remuneration, lifestyle, etc. ? That must be the underlying rationale in the pedantic lawyerly minds right now. That would mean Maxwell and Epstein were just a clearing house for underage whores like a modelling agency ?
With all the 'metoo' circus recently seen, the 'victims' now may just be making things up. This is not my view, I mean any prosecutor or judge shall anticipate this argument. It's what was made in the UK grooming and trafficking case, that the girls were simply willing to go along for promise of gain.

The key to this case is the evidence, the videos and pictures themselves.

"The public has a right to see those videos !" - Unknown Voyeur

This is why I liked Ed Snowden's popular services. Zero transparency cannot hurt a ZFG honest govt.


For those wishing to see her arrested, she eventually will be, though not on charges you'd want to see. She will most likely face a minimal term and some curbs for some other infraction. The estate won't ever go to the victims, it shall somehow be appropriated by the remnant of his enterprise, a bit payout handed out to victims.

The girls 'processed' into prostitution must number in the hundreds, for this level of traffick. They have no way of claiming any damages now, until those videos are released to their lawyers for use of litigation.

#3 With the possible exception of the UK's Prince Andrew, notice how little we're now hearing about the visitors to Epstein's island getaway. No longer even a 'ping' on ME and Soodie visitors.

Maxwell indicted? Very doubtful. Disappeared and never to be seen or heard from again? More likely.

#4 Could it be that what someone has knowledge of and...may say in the future has the potential to be much more dangerous than what they may have done in the past.

....documents declassified in 2006 show that the capture of Eichmann caused alarm at the CIA and West German Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND). Both organisations had known for at least two years that Eichmann was hiding in Argentina, but they did not act because it did not serve their interests in the Cold War to do so. Both were concerned about what Eichmann might say in his testimony about West German national security advisor Hans Globke, who had coauthored several antisemitic Nazi laws, including the Nuremberg Laws. The documents also revealed that both agencies had used some of Eichmann's former Nazi colleagues to spy on European Communist countries.

Both Osama bin Laden and Eichmann were buried at sea.

#5 #2 What if the girls willingly offered their services for remuneration, lifestyle, etc. ?

The underage girls and thus are considered victims of crimes. I thought these crimes were considered "new" crimes based on new evidence presented to the U.S. Southern District of New York. I dunno, but it doesn't stand to reason that any immunity from the first Florida trial would apply to a different jurisdiction for new crimes.
