Background Briefing: July 6, 2020
To Avoid Prison Will Epstein’s Procurer Implicate Powerful Men?
We begin with Thursday’s arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell who will be appearing before a judge in New York on Friday facing six counts including enticing and transporting a minor to travel to engage in criminal sexual activity. In spite of AG Barr’s attempt to control the case by removing Geoffrey Berman the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, it is likely that since the Public Corruption Division of the SDNY is handling the case, that Maxwell could agree to tell all to avoid spending the rest of her life behind bars in exchange for naming names such as Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew. Elie Honig, who served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York who is now a legal analyst at CNN where he has an article “Indictment puts Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell in a tough spot”, joins us. We look into whether the content of Epstein’s safe allegedly full of compromising tapes and videos of prominent men having sex with underage girls Maxwell helped procure for Epstein, which became inadmissible with Epstein’s mysterious death, will emerge as evidence against Maxwell. And since Berman is testifying behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, it is likely we will learn more about why Barr tried to fire him and what the Attorney General is trying to cover up this time since his tenure has been dedicated to protecting Trump from the law Barr is supposed to uphold.
