Ghislaine Maxwell Hired Ex-British Military Personnel to Help Evade FBI

Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime confident of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, hired former British military personnel to help evade the FBI, The Washington Post reports.

It didn’t work. The FBI broke down the door of her estate in New Hampshire earlier this month and found her hiding in a room. She wrapped her cellphone in tin foil in an apparent effort to evade FBI detection, federal prosecutors allege.

Maxwell has been charged with assisting the late Epstein in the sex trafficking of minors.

To avoid detection, Maxwell used her security staff “to make purchases for the property” with a credit card she provided, a guard told the FBI. The guards worked in “rotations” and were hired by Maxwell’s brother.

“As these facts make plain, there should be no question that the defendant is skilled at living in hiding,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe wrote in a court filing.
The U.S. attorney’s office argued that Maxwell is a flight risk.

FBI Investigating British Socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Other Linked to Jeffrey Epstein

Now that Jeffrey Epstein is dead, the FBI is beginning to investigate people linked to the U.S. financier, who committed suicide while awaiting a trial on sex trafficking charges, according to a new report.

One of those is British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The probe is in its early stages as the FBI follows up on leads received from women who said they were victimized by Epstein, law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation told Reuters.

In a civil lawsuit, one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, accused Maxwell of recruiting her into Epstein’s web, where she says she was forced to have sex with Epstein and his friends.

Since Epstein’s death, Maxwell has been in hiding. She previously dated Epstein, whom she met in the early 1990s.

The sources did not reveal the other “people who facilitated” the abuse.
