It was one of the most mysterious scandals of Bill Clinton’s life.
Now the conclusion is here.
And Bill Clinton sat up and took notice of this sex crime jury verdict.
A jury found accused Jeffrey Epstein Madam Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on five of six charges of sex trafficking underage girls between 1994 and 2004 as part of Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual misconduct.
United States Attorney Damian Williams celebrated Maxwell’s conviction.
“A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable – facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of children. Crimes that she committed with her long-time partner and co-conspirator, Jeffrey Epstein. The road to justice has been far too long. But, today, justice has been done. I want to commend the bravery of the girls – now grown women – who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case, and today’s result, possible,” Williams’ statement read.
But Maxwell’s trial also results in one of the most unsatisfying conclusions to a scandal in anyone’s memory.
Authorities claimed Epstein died by suicide in his Manhattan jail cell in July 2019 when Epstein supposedly strangled himself with a flimsy bed sheet.
Not many Americans believed this story as Epstein’s connections to prominent individuals such as Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew meant Epstein potentially possessed incriminating information on a host of rich and famous men who traveled and partied with Epstein while he trafficked underage girls.
While there is no evidence Clinton engaged in any sexual misconduct in his travels with Epstein, Clinton did provide misleading or false statements about when he first met Epstein, where they first met and how often they traveled together.
Clinton claimed the two first met after Clinton left office but testimony and records show Epstein visiting the White House multiple times beginning in 1993 and the two attended a fundraiser together in Florida during Clinton’s time in office.
Maxwell’s trial also never answered the question of computer hard drives that went missing from Epstein’s home after the FBI first arrested Epstein.
The Telegraph reported FBI agent Kelly Maguire testifying:
The FBI agent said officers broke open the safe with a saw, finding the CDs, jewellery, computer hard drives, “loose diamonds”, passports and “large amounts of US currency.”
They took photographs of the items, but left them at the residence as they did not have the warrant to remove them. When they returned four days later, on July 11, they were no longer there.
Maxwell’s conviction means these questions will never be answered.
The public will never know the truth about what incriminating evidence Epstein stored on those hard drives.
Those answers remain with Epstein in the grave and Maxwell will clearly never talk.
