They always knew.
Today, the DOJ published records unsealed by court order in the Ghislaine Maxwell case. These included a motion and numerous exhibits detailing what the FBI/DOJ - and in particular, the Southern District of New York - knew about the criminal activities of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell back in 2016.
Recall that Epstein was given a sweetheart deal back in 2007. Notes from a meeting in 2016 - read the document here - reveal that a “US Attorney has said [Epstein] could be prosecuted elsewhere.” They failed to act for years, however.
2016 Notes, continued: “Photos of naked girls on Maxwell’s comp.”
Regarding the search warrant on Epstein’s Palm Beach home - someone tipped off Epstein: “Collage of photos included nude girls incl. clients. Epstein tipped off. All computers were gone.”
The victim “wants prosecution.” The DOJ/FBI didn’t do anything for years.
The notes continue: Girls “as young as 12 but younger the better.” Notes from a visit in Thailand with handwritten note “w/ name of girls - written by Maxwell.”
