    Well maybe but who faked it?

    It was a nice touch that she apparently posed with her lawyer's dog. You have to ask why, though,

    Jeffrey Epstein guards charged with falsifying records

    Two prison guards who were on duty on the night of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein's death have been charged with falsifying records.
    They are accused of failing to check in on him every 30 minutes and fabricating log entries to show they had.
    Both appeared in court on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty.
    Epstein, a convicted sex offender, hanged himself in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.
    He had pleaded not guilty to sexually abusing dozens of girls, some as young as 14.


    The 66-year-old was previously jailed in Florida in 2008 for procuring a minor for prostitution.
    The charges against the two guards are the first to arise from a criminal inquiry into his death.
    What are the two guards accused of?

    They were supposed to check on Epstein every 30 minutes on the night of his death. He had been taken off suicide watch after a previous suspected attempt to take his own life and was alone in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.
    But attorney Geoffrey Berman said the two guards had "repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction" .
    The guards were named in a statement by the Southern District of New York Attorney's Office on Tuesday as correctional officers Tova Noel and Michael Thomas, aged 31 and 41 respectively.
    For "substantial portions" of their shifts, they "sat at their desk, browsed the internet, and moved around the common area", the statement said. They then signed "false certifications" showing that they had conducted counts of inmates.
    Both guards have been charged with "making false records and conspiring to make false records and to defraud the United States".
    "We allege these officers falsified records to create the appearance they were following... protocols. The security risks created by this type of behaviour are immense," FBI assistant director William Sweeney said in the statement.


    Surveillance footage showed that no other people had entered the area where Epstein was held that evening, the statement added.
    Both guards appeared in court on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty. Bail was set at $100,000 (£77,000) each, US media reports.
    Both guards were previously reported to have been working overtime shifts on the night of Epstein's death .
    US Attorney General William Barr ordered their suspension in August after the FBI opened an investigation.
    Federal prosecutors later offered the guards a plea bargain but they turned it down, according to the Associated Press news agency.

    An article about Epstein's house in New Mexico. The house is spectacular, but the thought of what went on there makes it a hell house. A worker alleges that he saw numerous photos of Epstein and Bill Clinton with underage girls throughout the house. I don't care how he died.

    It also had an underground cavern, like some of his other houses I think. These things never bode well.

    EXCLUSIVE: Ghislaine Maxwell reveals how she hired women to massage paedophile Jeffrey Epstein at his home 'at least once a day' – and admits she KNEW Prince Andrew sex accuser Virginia Roberts was only 17, in newly released court papers


    • Ms Maxwell, 57, told a court of her life as sex abuser Epstein's right-hand woman
    • In her role managing the businessman's six houses, she said she hired an array of staff including cooks, cleaners, gardeners and architects
    • Part of her job, she said was to recruit women to massage the 66-year-old paedophile in his home where he often had a rub down once a day
    • Ms Maxwell is accused of procuring young girls for Epstein to have sex with, a claim she denies
    • She spoke in a defamation case in New York brought by Virginia Roberts whom Ms Maxwell accused of lying over sex with Epstein and Prince Andrew

    Ghislaine Maxwell has revealed for the first time how she recruited women to massage billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein at his home 'at least once a day'.
    In newly released court papers, the socialite, who introduced Epstein to Prince Andrew, told how she managed Epstein's six houses around the world and hired 'lots of people' – but denied procuring young girls for him to have sex with.
    Ms Maxwell said she knew Andrew's sex-accuser Ms Roberts was 17 when she started massaging Epstein, but said her account about abuse she claims she suffered at the hands of the royal and his paedophile friend was a lie.

    Ms Maxwell admitted in newly-released court papers she knew Prince Andrew's sex accuser Virginia Roberts (pictured with the prince in 2001) was 17 when she started massaging Epstein

    Ms Maxwell tells how she recruited women to massage Epstein at his home at least once a day, sometimes more, as she also hired gardeners, pilots, chefs in her role for him

    Pictures from inside Epstein's Caribbean home home show four poster beds covered with mosquito nets in the property where Ms Roberts also said she and Prince Andrew had sex, a claim strenuously denied by the Duke of York

    In her video statement to a New York court in a libel action brought by ms Roberts, Ms Maxwell outlined her role for the disgraced businessman.
    'My job included hiring many people. There were six homes,' she said.
    'I hired assistants, architects, decorators, cooks, cleaners, gardeners, pool people, pilots. I hired all sorts of people.'

    Ms Maxwell is accused of procuring young girls for sex with Epstein, which she denies

    'A very small part of my job was to find adult professional massage therapists for Jeffrey,' she said.
    'From time to time I would visit professional spas. I would receive a massage and if it was good I would ask them if they did home visits.'
    In her evidence Ms Maxwell admitted knowing Ms Roberts was just 17 years old when she began giving massages to Epstein at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.
    Asked how often the teenager would massage Epstein, she said: 'It's important to understand that I wasn't with Jeffrey all the time.
    'In fact, I was only in the house less than half the time, so I cannot testify to when I wasn't there how often she came.
    'What I can say is that I barely would remember her, if not for all of this rubbish.
    'I probably wouldn't remember her at all, except that she came from time to time. But I don't recollect her coming as often as she portrayed herself.'
    Ms Roberts was suing Ms Maxwell for saying that her claims that she was forced to have sex with the Duke of York three times in 2001 when she was 17 were all lies.

    Prince Andrew has been criticised for his lack of judgement over his friendship with Epstein as the pair were pictured taking a stroll together in New York during the Duke's four day visit

    Ms Maxwell reached agreement with the teenager in an out of court settlement and applied to have the interviews sealed.
    Following Epstein's arrest on sex trafficking charges in July an appeal court ruled some 2,000 pages could be released.
    Extracts from her statement were unsealed on August 9 – the day before the 67-year-old billionaire was found dead in his cell from an apparent suicide.
    Asked how many times Epstein would get a massage she added: 'When I was at the house he received a massage on average once a day.'
    Witnesses have told police that Ms Maxwell acted as Epstein's 'fixer' and recruited underage girls for him. It is also alleged that she took part in the sex abuse, claims she denies.
    When asked if Epstein sexually abused minors, she replied: 'I can only testify to what I know. I know that Virginia is a liar and I know what she testified is a lie.
    'So I can only testify to what I know to be a falsehood and half those falsehoods are enormous so I categorically deny everything she said.'

    Virginia Roberts claims she was groomed by Epstein and forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was 17 in 2001 - once in Ms Maxwell's Belgravia home


    +13

    Since working for Epstein as a masseuse, Ms Roberts has moved to Australia and married her husband of 16 years Robert Giuffre (above) and lives quietly in Cairns with their two children

    At one point Ms Maxwell became so angry she banged her hand on the table in fury and went on: 'I can only go on what I know. What I know is a falsehood based on what Virginia said. Everything Virginia has said is an absolute lie, which is why we are here in this room.
    'What we can all agree at this point, there is not one person in this room, however much you would like her to be younger, who can say she was not 17.
    'So she was 17. At 17 you are allowed to be a professional masseuse. There is nothing inappropriate about her coming at that time to give a massage.'
    Ms Maxwell insisted she 'barely knew' Ms Roberts despite overwhelming evidence to suggest the women had seen each other on a number of occasions.
    The teenager was standing next to Ms Maxwell when she posed with Andrew on the upstairs landing at her Belgravia home in a now notorious photo taken in 2000.

    A group of women are pictured on Epstein's private island Little Saint James, based off the coast of St. Thomas, where Chauntae Davies (above) among others said Epstein raped her

    And flight documents show that the two women had also flown together on Epstein's private jet – nicknamed 'The Lolita Express' – no fewer than 23 times.
    Ms Maxwell denied being involved in any sex abuse, adding: 'I have never participated at any time with Virginia in a massage with Jeffrey. I have been absolutely appalled by her story.'
    Ms Roberts has said Ms Maxwell should be arrested and that Andrew belongs in jail over the scandal.
    She alleged she was a trafficking victim of Epstein, who coerced her into having sex with the Duke three times in 2001 - once at Ms Maxwell's London home, once in New York and then a final time on Epstein's private estate in the Caribbean.
    The Duke strenuously denies her claims.

    From the article, it sounds like they didn't check on any of the inmates that night, & possibly other nights. That's how I took it, at least.

    Except I'm pretty sure she wasn't a professional masseuse, at 17 or any other age. Did she really try and claim that she recruited a bunch of underage girls because of their professionalism and great rubdown technique?

    BREAKING: New royal implicated in Jeffrey Epstein scandal


    By Charlie Proctor

    2nd December 2019










    OSKAR AANMOEN / ROYAL CENTRAL

    It has emerged that Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway held meetings with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein after his release from prison.

    According to VG, Norway’s biggest newspaper, Mette-Marit had meetings with Epstein between 2011 and 2013 – years after his conviction for soliciting a minor for prostitution.

    In a statement, the Crown Princess said: “I would never have had anything to do with Epstein if I had been aware of the seriousness of his criminal acts.

    “I should have investigated Epstein’s past and regret that I did not.”

    Mette-Marit and Epstein met on a number of occasions both in Oslo and the United States, having been introduced to each other through mutual acquaintances.

    Epstein was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008 after he admitted paying an underage woman for sex.

    The disgraced billionaire was arrested again in July this year and was subsequently charged with the trafficking of girls, some as young as 14.

    In August he killed himself in his New York prison cell.

    In the UK, Prince Andrew has faced severe criticism for continuing to see Epstein after his release from prison in 2010.

    The furious backlash against the Duke of York ultimately led to him stepping down as a working member of the Royal Family last month.
