Will Maxwell Go To Trial?
The Ghislaine Maxwell sex-trafficking trial has finally been set for Nov. 29 in New York District Court. But judging from the many legal maneuvers and trial-date changes in the past year, will there actually be a trial?
Maxwell and her team are objecting to the the new trial date because of its close proximity to the holidays. Maxwell was originally scheduled to face trial in early summer. In the latest round of legal gibberish, she even put forward that her family would be unable to attend on the November date. “This woman has shown herself, yet again, to be arrogant,” says Matthew Steeples, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Steeple Times in London. “She has no concept of how ordinary people live.”
Steeple tells Shaun Attwood that Maxwell is at the “top of the pyramid” when it comes to the sordid sex-trafficking case, even more important that Jeffrey Epstein. One of the major victims in the case, Maria Farmer, alleged that American billionaire and Epstein confidant Les Wexner was the ringleader, something that Steeples hasn’t acknowledged. “There are obviously different entities who she is connected with, but I think it’s actually her. She’s the most important.” Here’s more on the case with Steeples and Attwood, including a question-and-answer session with viewers.ARVE Error: need id and provider
