That did not protect Epstein.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the former girlfriend of pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in a jailhouse suicide, believes she can evade being prosecuted in connection with Epstein because she has “serious dirt” on powerful people, a former friend of the Maxwell family has claimed.

Ghislaine has been widely accused of supplying a string of young and underage females to Epstein for his sexual gratification.

Ghislaine is “totally convinced” that she can stay in hiding, and is currently being protected by a coterie of rich friends who are even said to be paying her legal bills.

A family friend, Laura Goldman, told U.K. paper The Sun that Ghislaine is texting friends from her secret hideaway.

Goldman, who was friends with both Maxwell and her sister Isabel, told The Sun: “Ghislaine and her sister Isabel remain totally convinced that she’ll escape any criminal convictions and will eventually clear the family name and return to high society once the dust has settled.

“She obviously has some serious dirt on someone to be so sure of herself in the circumstances,” Goldman said.

I think somebody should point out that while this might indeed protect Ghislaine from legal actions, that Epstein was not shut up by the courts. 

He was suicided.

I just hope she has the best security staff that money can buy, because she is going to need it.

It should be pointed out however that if these “powerful people” used a similar tactic against this woman that the investigation into Epstein’s death would go into overdrive.
