Ghislaine Maxwell, former girlfriend and muse of Jeffrey Epstein, will have her recorded testimony against the disgraced millionaire and alleged pedophile used against her in new proceedings. This comes after her defense team’s request to keep the recordings and the presiding courts denied accompanying documents involved in her own trafficking indictment proceedings private.

A trial will attempt to charge British socialite for the alleged trafficking of young women and minors on behalf of Epstein next year; however, a 17-page indictment has already been filed against her, including evidence used in a previous defamation case.

Attempts by her legal team were made to block access to the evidence, with claims that it would stunt Maxwell’s ability to defend herself properly; however, The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan denied their requests and chose to make them a part of the upcoming proceedings, upholding the ruling of U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska who called the argument for privacy “meritless. “The evidence would consist of over seven hours of her testimony against the late Epstein as well as 2,000 accompanying documents.

Ghislaine is the daughter of infamous media proprietor Ian Robert Maxwell, who, according to The Telegraph, had multiple allegations of being a spy, a Mossad agent, “a thoroughly bad character and almost certainly financed by Russia.” She became involved with Epstein in the late ’90s and attended a multitude of social events with him throughout the last few decades. They mingled with prominent individuals such as Donald Trump and Bill Clinton while having extremely close ties with the likes of Prince Andrew. She came out of the public spotlight in 2015 once rumors about her involvement with Epstein’s crimes began to circulate until she was arrested by the FBI in July of this year. Her own case will be heard in July of next year.
