Editor’s Note: This potentially could have led to a new trial and another long grind for all involved. But the judge was OK with the inadvertent omission by a male juror not having confirmed having been abused. No details were given.

Some visible bias (to other jurors I would suspect) would have had to have been exhibited in the juror’s conduct to have trashed the verdict. The facts presented were substantial. Maxwell’s memory is just fine. She knows what she did, and why, and never showed any remorse.

Ghislaine has a late June sentencing date, and she could be saving some cards to play at sentencing, and before. There has been background chatter for many years that she had her own stash of videos for possible future use at blackmail.

The Israelis kept themselves from being mentioned at all, the best I can recall, and historically they have been known for their Intel services getting compromising material on high-ups to have for a future day to use to ‘encourage’ their cooperation.

We may never know, or we might have a big surprise before this is over. One of the reasons is due to the large number of Intel people who think that Epstein was murdered so he could not name names in an effort to get a reduced sentence.

If that is the case, the prison guards would have had to have been in on it, with their falling asleep convenient timing for when Epstein was supposed to have been snuffed… Jim W. Dean

Judge upholds Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking conviction

…from Politico

First published April 1, 2022

NEW YORK — A U.S. judge refused to throw out Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking conviction Friday, despite a juror’s failure to disclose before the trial began that he’d been a victim of childhood sexual abuse.

Maxwell, a British socialite, was convicted in December of helping the millionaire Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse several teenage girls.

U.S. Judge Alison J. Nathan declined to order a new trial weeks after questioning the juror under oath in a New York courtroom about why he failed to disclose his personal history as an abuse survivor on a questionnaire during the jury selection process.

The juror had said he “skimmed way too fast” through the questionnaire and did not intentionally give the wrong answer to a question about sex abuse.

“I didn’t lie in order to get on this jury,” he said.

In her opinion, Nathan said the juror’s failure to disclose his prior sexual abuse during the jury selection process was highly unfortunate, but not deliberate.

The judge also concluded that the juror “harbored no bias toward the defendant and could serve as a fair and impartial juror.”

  1. As this case meanders through the “justice” system, it’s worth noting that every case involving an Israeli asset has ended up with a slap on the wrist and a one-way ticket to Tel Aviv, unless she is suicided like Epstein which would have happened by now. Maybe just like her fellow Ashkenazi, Merrick Garland, she’s just waiting for the next shoe to drop that will change everything.

    • Of course. Epstein was too drugged up in jail to protect himself. His days were numbered years ago. Trump has managed to stay alive because he still has value. I see a coronary on the golf course in his future.
