The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial – Part 1

The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial – Part 2: The Pilot Testifies

The second witness to testify was ‘Jane’, who is the first of the four victims that will come forward in this trial. She is a reputedly talented singer and actress who has a current role in a soap opera, and has asked to remain anonymous because she works in Hollywood ‘and victim shaming is still the norm.’

To being with, her birth certificate was entered into evidence – which can ensure that her age can be measured at any given date and event.

AUSAs Allison Moe and Maureen Comey questioned Jane.

AUSA Maureen Comey started questioning her: ‘How old were you when you first had sexual contact with Mr. Epstein?’

Jane – Fourteen.

Comey – Who else was in the room?

Jane – Ghislaine Maxwell.

Jane then proceeds to identify Ghislaine Maxwell in the courtroom. She tells the court how her musical composer father died of Leukemia, and how this left the family destitute.

At Interlochen art camp, she met an adult couple. The elegant woman had a small dog, and the man mentioned that they were ‘big benefactors’. They asked for her mother’s phone number.

Jane said seemed very friendly. She thought they were a married couple and felt they were very inquisitive.

Initially, Maxwell and Epstein’s attention made her feel special. ‘I didn’t have much support or attention at home.’

When she visited Epstein’s Palm Beach house without her mother, she remembered seeing Ghislaine and another four women at the pool. They were all topless – and some of them were naked.

‘I was shocked. I hadn’t seen that before.’

Maxwell would ask her about boyfriends. Meanwhile, Epstein started to pay for her voice lessons, clothes, and things for school.

Jane: ‘[Maxwell] said that if you fuck them [i.e. rich old guys], you can always fuck them, they’re sort of grandfathered in’.
AUSA Maureen Comey: Did Ms. Maxwell give you some advice?

Jane: She said that if you fuck them [i.e. rich old guys], you can always fuck them, they’re sort of grandfathered in.

Jane said she laughed because she didn’t know what it meant. She testified that the house was decorated with creepy paintings and sculptures (naked women, creepy animals), and pictures of famous people.

A photograph of her as a 13-year-old is submitted under seal. This will let the jury see how she looked around the time when Maxwell was suggesting she ‘fuck, in order to grandfather’ old guys.

Jane recalls in detail one of the episodes of abuse: ‘Epstein took me into the pool house. He pulled his sweatpants down, pulled me on top of him. He then proceeded to masturbate on me. Then he went into the bathroom, cleaned himself and acted like nothing had happened. I was frozen in fear. I’d never seen a penis before.’

Comey: Did you keep spending time with them?

Jane: Yes.

Jane: ‘Epstein took me into the pool house. He pulled his sweatpants down, pulled me on top of him. He then proceeded to masturbate on me’.

When he wanted to see her, Jeffrey Epstein used to send the chauffer to pick her up, since she did not have a driver’s license.

Jane recalled another instance of abuse: ‘Jeffrey proceeded to masturbate again. Ghislaine was rubbing on him, kissing on him.’

Comey: How old were you?

Jane: Fourteen.

Comey: What was Ms. Maxwell’s demeanor like?

Jane: She was very casual, like this was all entirely normal. I was confused. When you are 14 you have no idea what is going on.

Comey: Did Jeffrey Epstein touch you?

Jane: Yes. Everywhere.

Comey: Did you touch Mr. Epstein?

Jane: [pause] Everywhere.

AUSA: I’m sorry to ask you this, but did he use sex toys?

Jane: Yes. Like those back massagers. They were painful. He did it anyway.

Comey: Did Maxwell touch your body?

Jane: Yes.

Maxwell (pictured with assistant Sarah Kellen) not only fed victims to the ‘abuse pyramid’, but eventually would participate in the abuse itself.

This is the center of the whole case, right here. After targeting and grooming the victim, Maxwell not only fed her to what prosecutors called an ‘abuse pyramid’, but eventually would participate in the ‘festivities’.

Comey: How often did these things happen?

Jane: Every time I visited his house.

Comey: Did you travel to his other homes?

Jane: Yes.

Comey: We’ll get back to that. When other people were present, how did incidents start?

Jane: Jeffrey would say to follow him.

Comey: Follow him where?

Jane: To his bedroom, or to the massage room. He would get on the massage table and it would sort of turn into this orgy.

Comey: How often was Maxwell present?

Jane: I can’t give a precise number.

Jane mentioned another instance when Epstein and Maxwell started to fondle each other and to giggle about it in front of her. She says she was 14 at the time.

She also said that Epstein liked to be massaged “hard” – having his nipples twisted hard, his feet rubbed hard.

Jane: It’s these mixed emotions. When you’re 14, you don’t know what is going on. He would touch my breasts. He would touch my vagina.

Comey: During the incident when you were 14, was Maxwell in the room?

Jane: Yes.

Comey: When you were 14,15 and 16 how many times did you travel with them?

Jane: About ten times. To NYC, and New Mexico. On Jeffrey’s plane.

Comey: How did you feel, in the New York house?

Jeffrey Epstein’s New York townhouse.

Jane: Like someone was always watching you.

Comey: On the trip to New Mexico, where did you spend most of your time?

Jane: On the ranch. It was in the middle of nowhere.

AUSA: Did anyone come into your room?

Jane: Yes. Someone would come in and say ‘Jeffrey wants to see you’ and escort me to see him. (sobbing) I did not want to go see him.

Jane said that she had to fly back to Florida for school. She took a commercial flight. But since she was only 15 and didn’t have ID, she couldn’t board the plane. She said she ‘freaked out’, but that Maxwell helped solve it. ‘She talked to someone and I got on the plane.’

Jane testified that her family was losing their home, and had to move into a pool house. That difficult situation put her in a hard position since she now needed Epstein’s help more than ever.

Jane’s financial problems made her even more vulnerable to the abuse by her ‘benefactors’.

She got emotional, and said: ‘I felt my heart sinking into my stomach because I didn’t want to see him.’

Jane testified that her mom was ‘enamored by the idea’ that affluent people were taking an interest in her. This prompted an objection by the defense, claiming it was ‘hearsay’.

Judge Nathan allowed the jury to hear what Jane’s mother said, ‘not offered for the truth of the matter asserted, but for the impact on the witness’.

Comey: What did your mother say?

Jane: That I should be grateful for their attention.

Jane testified that she didn’t tell her siblings about the abuse because she was ashamed, thought it was her fault, and was in a household when you didn’t speak unless spoken to. She felt she ‘had a manic-depressed mother who didn’t know how to cope. I was afraid that I would be in trouble if I said something.’

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe asked her if she considered self-harm. Jane replies yes, that things seemed hopeless.

Jane later spoke to a school guidance counselor about her sadness, and she said her mother slapped her, and admonished her that she shouldn’t tell anyone about her feelings ‘My mother told me, ‘You don’t talk about what happens at home and embarrass us’.’

The long-term impacts of her experiences with Epstein and Maxwell made Jane unable to navigate a healthy relationship ‘with a broken compass’. ‘I didn’t know what real love was supposed to look like. It ruined my self-esteem , my self-worth’.

She testified to be a working actress working in LA. She broke contact with Jeffrey Epstein in 2002.

Jane: ‘Epstein kept calling me and saying he wanted to see me, that I needed to be grateful to him’.

Jane: Epstein kept calling me and saying he wanted to see me, that I needed to be grateful to him, that my mother was living in one of his apartments.

AUSA Alison Moe: Later did you tell the man I’ll call Matt about Epstein?

Jane: Yes. Not in detail, but I did. By then, you saw Epstein on the TV all the time, because he had been arrested.

Moe: Did the FBI interview you in September 2019?

Jane: Yes.

Jane: May 2019.

Moe: Did you sue Ghislaine Maxwell?

Jane: Yes. In 2020.

Moe: And the Epstein Victims’ Fund?

Jane: Yes. They awarded me $5 million. Of that, I got approximately $2.9 million.

Moe: Would the verdict in this case impact that?

Jane: No.

Judge Nathan: This is not a legal opinion.

Moe: Why do you want to be anonymous?

Jane: Because I work in Hollywood and victim shaming is still the norm.

AUSA: No further questions.

Laura Menninger did the cross-examination for the defense.

Laura Menninger cross-examined Jane for the defense. In all fairness, the only avenue left to the defense is blaming the victims and discrediting them. They are juggling with the crazy strategy of sometimes acknowledging that Epstein may have been a monster, but NOT while he was with Maxwell, because then he was ‘a 21-century James Bond’, and a ‘patron to the arts’.

Laura Menninger: You waited 20 years to complain, correct?

Jane: Correct.

Menninger: Two full decades before your first report to the police. By then Mr. Epstein was dead, correct?

Jane: Correct.

Menninger: And you had two personal injury attorneys with you. Mr. Glaxman and Mr. Workman. And AUSA Moe.

Jane: Yes.

Menninger: In the 20 years, you spoke to several people close to you. To the person we’re referring to as Matt. You told one of your older sisters, right?

Jane: Right.

Menninger: But you didn’t mention Ghislaine Maxwell, correct?

Jane: I don’t know.

Menninger: I’d like to show the witness another sealed document.

Jane: I recognize my mother’s signature and mine. But I don’t recognize the document.

Maxwell’s defense tried to discredit Jane’s testimony.

Menninger: Do you recognize the document?

Jane: I do. It’s the application for Interlochen camp.

Menninger: And is your signature on the 2d page?

Jane: Yes.

Menninger: Before you met Jeffrey Epstein, right? Did you apply for financial aid or a scholarship?

Jane: I guess not. I was a child.

On the second day of cross-examination of Jane, Maxwell’s defense attorney Laura Menninger continued questioning about Interlochen, the arts camp where she met Epstein and Maxwell.

Menninger tries to challenge her account of a difficult family life through records at Interlochen, like an application describing her ‘loving family.’

The defense attorney said that Jane has given different accounts of meeting Epstein and Maxwell, following the defense strategy to question each victim’s memories of decades-old events.

Menninger presented Jane with ‘notes’ (presumably FBI 302s). ‘You testified yesterday your first has sex with Epstein in his pool house in Florida. But you told the government it was in New York.’

Jane: Those are not my notes. I did not write that down and it was not recorded.

She said repeatedly that that information was inaccurate. ‘This is just someone jotting down notes’.

Menninger: You told them you only remembered one incident in New York when Ghislaine was present.

Jane: I don’t recall.

Jane’s cross examination, as expected, was long and grueling.

A long discussion ensues about some memories she would have mentioned about going to see The Lion King. Judge Nathan calls for a break, saying that Jane needed a drink of water. Prosecution and defense are at each other’s throats.

Menninger: Let’s go to your conversation in Feb 2020 about The Lion King.

Moe: No objection

Menninger: I know Ms. Moe would like to come and do this for me.

Moe: I object to that.

Menninger asks about her trip to the New Mexico Zorro Ranch. ‘You weren’t asked to have sex with any of Epstein’s friends, were you?’

Jane: No.

Menninger: Did Epstein introduce you to people in the arts?

Jane: Not really.

Menninger: To the Dean of Interlochen at a cocktail party?

Jane: I don’t recall.

Menninger tries to read from a document, sparking an objection. The prosecution objects to Menninger ‘testifying.’

The prosecution objected to Menninger’s attempt to ‘testify’.

Menninger: You said you met Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago, before the pool house incident [with Epstein].

Jane: I don’t recall.

Menninger: In 2019, before Epstein was arrested, you were contacted by the government, right?

Jane: Yes.

Menninger: But you said you were not interested in getting involved.

Jane: Right.

Menninger: You’ve talked to your ex-boyfriend Matt, right?

Jane: Right.

Menninger: When you were 15, did you take a trip to Italy for a singing competition?

Jane: I may have. I don’t remember. I was 15.

Menninger posited that Jane did not recall whether Maxwell ever touched her. ‘That’s not true’, she replied. Asked whether she told the government Maxwell had never watched her perform oral sex on Epstein, Jane agreed.

She also confirmed having told the government that Maxwell never used sex toys or a vibrator on her.

Menninger: So you went to a specialized entertainment school, right? And since then you’ve played roles like a cancer patient?

Jane: Yes.

Menninger: Prostitute?

Jane: No.

Menninger: You can cry on command?

Jane : No, not always. That’s not really how it works.

Menninger: Your accusations in this case include that you were 14 went you were abused, right?

Jane: Yes.

Menninger: But you first told the government you were 13, right?

Jane: I might have said 13 going on 14. It’s a small technicality.

Allison Moe redirected for the prosecution.

The prosecution moved on to redirect.

AUSA Alison Moe: Did any of us prosecutors ever tell you what to say at this trial?

Jane: No.

Moe asks Jane what they told her to say. She replied: “Just tell the truth.”

Moe: You were asked about notes of meetings with the Government. Did you speak about everything all at once?

Jane: No. It was too difficult, emotionally, on every level. Because I was standing in a room full of strangers and telling them the most shameful, deepest secrets that I’ve been carrying around with me my whole life.

Moe: Then there were fewer of us In the room. Do you know why?

Jane: To make me more comfortable.

Moe: Why did you speak to the tabloid reporter?

Jane: He basically blackmailed me. He said he would publish unredacted documents.

Judge Nathan: This is not for the truth of the matter asserted, but impact on the listener.

Moe: Did you make an agreement with the reporter?

Jane: Yes. I’d talk about meeting Jeffrey Epstein, the reporter would keep my name out of it. I was working on a TV show.

Moe: Do you know the difference between acting on television and testifying in court?

Jane: Yes. This is real. I am seeking closure. I have been running from this my entire life. I want to help in whatever way I can and maybe find some healing.

By the end, Jane was reportedly sobbing.

Moe: Do you have any financial interest in this trial?

Jane: No.

The prosecutor then asked about the defense bringing up the 5 million dollars settlement she got from the Epstein victims fund, of which she received roughly $2.9 million.

Moe: In your own words, can you tell the jury what that money meant to you?

She cried, wiping her eyes with a tissue. ‘I wish I never received that money in the first place, because of what happened”.

      Is she still working on a career in stand up comedy?

      How are her latte art skills coming along?

        • Pea must have been Inner Circle or how could she know Keith “enjoyed Kristin Kreuk lavishly?” Unless that was common knowledge, or maybe Kook was passed around and enjoyed by men and women alike.

    Kinky photos of Jizzlane Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein

    SOLE MATES Ghislaine Maxwell gives Epstein foot massage in creepy never-before-seen pics of their sordid relationship

    CREEPY pictures have emerged showing Ghislaine Maxwell giving Jeffrey Epstein a foot massage.

    The never-before-seen images reveal the intimate relationship between the 59-year-old socialite and the multi-millionaire paedophile.

    The pictures were shown to the jury at Maxwell’s sex trafficking and abuse trial in New York.

    Maxwell is alleged to have “served up” girls for former lover Epstein to abuse and also allegedly participated in some of the attacks – which she denies.

    Two of the photos show her massaging Epstein’s feet while they are on his private plane, nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express’.

    Another image shows Maxwell with her arms wrapped around him in an intimate embrace.

    There are also pictures of the pair with their arms around each other on holiday and her kissing him.

    Maxwell’s trial has been told her and Epstein had been in a relationship but remained “the best of friends” after they split.

    Prosecutors have described them as being “partners in crime” in the abuse of girls.

    To Save Time, Ghislaine Maxwell Just Lists the Hollywood Celebs and Politicians Who Didn’t Visit Epstein Island

    The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell is underway but began to get bogged as Maxwell listed the names of people who had flown on Lolita Express and visited Epstein Island. Now, in order to save time, she will just list the names of Hollywood celebs and politicians who didn’t.

    “Um, there are only, like 3 or 4 who didn’t,” said Maxwell, looking at the ceiling. “Let’s see, there’s, uh… Mel Gibson and Kirk Cameron… oh yeah, Keanu Reeves. Ron Paul. There were a few others, but that’s most of the big ones, I think.”

    With this new testimony, almost every single elite celebrity and politician has been outed as a sex predator, confirming what every person on earth already suspected.

    According to sources, FBI leadership in D.C. was going to open investigations into the political and Hollywood elites implicated in the testimony, but they quickly dropped all cases once they remembered that they themselves were also creepy sex predators who had visited Epstein Island.

    Americans are demanding the firing of every politician in government and replacing all of them with Keanu Reeves.

    • Shadowstate is CRAZIER than ever:

      “Every single celebrity has been outed as a sex predator, confirming what every person on earth already suspected.”
      -Shadowstate1958

      He’s so nuts!

      • Anonymous, I double checked the surreal passage you are quoting from.

        Shadowstate has developed severe paranoia. I feel bad for him. It’s not funny.

  • From Tuesday’s trial:

    Once, Ms. Maxwell asked if the teenager knew anyone who could come over to perform a sex act on Mr. Epstein, “because it was a lot for her to do,” Kate testified. Ms. Maxwell also told her that Mr. Epstein liked “cute, young, pretty” girls like Kate, and that he “needed to have sex about three times a day.”

    A women’s work is never done…

  • By now, another two victims have testified. One was 17 when she was abused in London, and 18 when she was abused in Palm Beach and The Virgin Islands. The defense argued she is not a victim because in London the age of consent is 17. So the judge agreed with that but let her testify as a witness. This is huge. How is it possible that the prosecution didn’t know this? In the indictment, it says ‘minor victims under the age of 18. But the age of consent is different in every state! How is it possible the prosecution doesn’t know this? Unbelievable. Annie Farmer (she will be the last victim to testify) was 16 when she was abused in New Mexico, where, in 1996 the age of consent was 16 (it’s 17 now). That’s right folks, another victim can be stricken from the indictment! Amateurs!

    Today, Carolyn testified. She was 14 when she was abused. Lasted 3 years and 100+ visits to the Palm Beach mansion. A truly, truly sad story. I felt so sorry for her. But, all abuse took place in Palm Beach so she didn’t travel interstate, a crucial part of the charges. So my guess is that this victim will also be stricken from the indictment. That leaves only victim 1, Jane. Great job, fucking losers of the SDNY! You start to think they purposely want to lose this case…

      This is not a civil trial where victims get compensated. The judge says that these witnesses testify to show a pattern of behavior where Maxwell brings in young women for Epstein to have sex with and sometimes Max joins in.

      • Yes, I know the judge let them testify as a witness to show a pattern of behavior of Maxwell and Epstein. The point is they were presented as minor victims on the charges of transporting and enticing minor victims for sex. Now, the judge has ruled they are not victims of the charges against Maxwell because they were of age of consent (17 in London, 16 in NM).

        Why didn’t the prosecution charged Maxwell with sex trafficking of those two girls (as adults)? She got 30 million from Epstein according to banker from J.P. Morgan who testified! So “something of value” was exchanged. Then they would have testified as victims in this case and not as witnesses. In my view the prosecution blundered monumentally here….Imagine you are a prosecutor who specializes in child abuse cases and you have never heard of the age of consent ….

    • It’s meant to show that Epstein (and by extension his collaborator, Maxwell) did icky sex things. Which he most certainly did. Makes it easier to persuade the jury that these two did icky sex things that are illegal. Which they most likely did.

      Reasonable doubt though?

      I suspect this jury will have to deliberate much longer than Raniere’s jury did.
