      Can you not spread unfounded conspiracy theories on here please? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/nyregion/bill-clinton-jeffrey-epstein.html...

      Edit: Since I can't reply to you due to that stupid timeout... You're doing it again, @suspended. You're "Just Asking Questions" which shifts the burden of proof from you, who is the one making the unfounded allegations, onto others who you're forcing to defend against them. If you want to claim Clinton or Trump was involved in sex trafficking with Epstein, why don't you provide the proof there is any credibility to the claims instead of waving your own hands at the NYT reporting that says otherwise.

      p.s. I removed the JAQ off part, since it was a bit mean. I'm in a foul mood, sorry everyone, including @suspended. I'm gonna take a few weeks break from Tildes to get my head right, I think. :/

        So the NYT debunking the claim amounts to them asking Clinton's spokesman and he said nah? And then this: Four, twenty-six, who's counting.

        So the NYT debunking the claim amounts to them asking Clinton's spokesman and he said nah?

        And then this:

        In his statement on Monday, Mr. Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Ureña, said that Mr. Clinton took “four trips” on Mr. Epstein’s plane between 2002 and 2003 — one each to Europe and Asia, and two to Africa.

        [...]

        Flight records published by Gawker in 2015 suggested that Mr. Clinton took at least a dozen separate flights on Mr. Epstein’s plane. A year later, Fox News reported that flight records showed President Clinton had flown at least 26 times on Mr. Epstein’s plane.

        Four, twenty-six, who's counting.

      Presumably she is aware of all the high profile visitors, and will be highly motivated to rat them out to reduce her sentence. The FBI will be eager to ask her about high profile people such as Prince Andrew. I don't think they ever seriously pursued Clinton or Trump.

      It's normal for people facing these sorts of charges to try to commit suicide. I would expect the jail would put her on close suicide watch, if not, there are likely to be some hard questions that will be asked.

          The suicide rate (after apprehension) of male child sex offenders who engaged exclusively in sex (as distinct from those who performed multiple types of crimes and those who were violent to children), is reported to be 183 times higher than that of members of the general population 15.

          Jail guards are underpaid and overworked

          Just because you have difficulty believing something, doesn't make it not so.

    Ghislaine Maxwell, the former girlfriend and longtime associate of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested Thursday in New Hampshire on criminal charges linked to his alleged sex-trafficking operation, according to a law enforcement official.

    Ms. Maxwell was accused in an indictment of recruiting and grooming “multiple” girls, including one as young as 14, for Mr. Epstein, who sexually abused them. She also faces perjury charges.

    Civil lawsuits have accused Ms. Maxwell of managing a network of recruiters that Mr. Epstein relied on to entice young and often financially strapped girls and women into his scheme, promising he would help them with their education and careers.

    “They were like partners in a business,” Mr. Epstein’s house manager, Janusz Banasiak, said in a deposition.

    The new federal indictment, unsealed on Thursday, charged Ms. Maxwell with six counts: enticing minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in sexual activity, two conspiracy counts related to those charges and two counts of perjury.

    Where was she picked up? The article doesn't seem to mention anything about it.
