McGowan shared an old photo of Epstein, Maxwell, and Harvey Weinstein with their faces crossed out on Friday, captioning it, “Now get Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.”
Former President Bill Clinton has been photographed multiple times aboard Epstein’s private jet, infamously known as the “Lolita Express.” Clinton has denied ever visiting Little St. James, Epstein’s private Caribbean island. However, an employee at the so-called “pedophile island” has claimed in the recent Netflix documentary on Epstein that he has seen the former president there. McGowan is probably one of Hollywood’s most vocal firebrands for sexual assault victims. According to the Planet Terror actress, her allegations that Harvey Weinstein had raped her at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997 were ignored for years by powerful Hollywood executives.
FBI spokesman Marty Feely revealed that Ghislaine was taken into custody around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday and charged with sex trafficking minors for late financier Jeffrey Epstein. She helped the pedophile financier groom girls as young as 14 for sex between 1994 and 1997, prosecutors have alleged. Meanwhile, Prince Andrew has denied he engaged in sexual activity with 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre, who was allegedly groomed by Epstein and Maxwell. According to Giuffre, she was forced to have sex three times with the Duke of York when she was still a minor.
This comes after shortly after it emerged that Maxwell went to “extreme lengths” in an attempt to stay under the radar while she was in hiding over the past year ever since Epstein’s arrest. Maxwell, widely believed to be an Epstein accomplice, was arrested at a home worth around $1million in New Hampshire on child sex trafficking ring-related charges. Prosecutors, in court documents on Thursday, July 2, also stated that Maxwell bought the million-dollar house she was arrested in with cash in December and paid for it through an LLC to avoid detection.
Before buying the property, she moved her location at least twice in New England. The 58-year-old was last seen in public at an In-N-Out Burger in Los Angeles in August 2019, nearly ten days before Epstein committed suicide in a Manhattan prison. Maxwell, during this period, also changed her phone number and email address.
It is not yet clear for how long the FBI was keeping an eye on her. She reportedly registered a new phone number under the name ‘G Max’ and used a fake name to have packages delivered to her, the Daily Mail reported.
According to investigators, Maxwell moved money between 15 different bank accounts, and the total balance in her accounts over the last few years varied from thousands of dollars to $20 million. She moved $500,000 from one account to another in one instance. Prosecutors, in a memo filed in court on Thursday asking for a judge to deny her bail, stated that Maxwell has three passports (British, French, and American) and is a major flight risk.
