Will CIA Protect Maxwell?
The Ghislaine Maxwell case is much bigger than just sexual abuse and child trafficking. It’s about espionage, money laundering and ties with world leaders, drug cartel bosses and intelligence agencies worldwide, especially through connections with her late father, Robert Maxwell, a suspected spy and fraudster.
Speaking to Shaun Attwood, French investigative blogger Fred Ponton says Ghislaine Maxwell is definitely one of the “big fish” authorities were seeking in the massive Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking scandal. He says she’s at a crossroads, as far as her connections with the intelligence community at large. “We’ve seen it on many occasions with such a high-valued target, who possesses a lot of information,” Ponton says. “It’s easy to believe that she’s recorded a lot of the conversations of what was going on in the islands (Little St. James) because she spent so much time with Jeffrey Espstein.”
Because intelligence agencies, such as the CIA and FBI, allegedly also have all the info on the case, it boils down to a political decision, says Ponton. Maxwell basically is facing two choices: If she talks, she needs to be protected. If she doesn’t talk, she’s going to do some hard time. Here’s more with Attwood and Ponton.
