Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced for Sex Crimes; Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’

Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Sex Trafficking Minor Girls for Jeffrey Epstein

By CNN. Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Tuesday for carrying out a years-long scheme with her longtime confidante Jeffrey Epstein to groom and sexually abuse underage girls.

Maxwell, 60, did not testify in her defense during the trial late last year, which ended with her conviction on five counts, including sex trafficking of a minor. But on Tuesday she spoke in court to the victims shortly before the sentence was handed down.

“Jeffrey Epstein should have been here before all of you,” Maxwell said at the podium, her legs shackled. “It is not about Epstein, ultimately. It is for me to be sentenced.”

Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend, acknowledged that she had been convicted in the sex trafficking scheme but stopped short of taking responsibility. (Read more from “Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Sex Trafficking Minor Girls for Jeffrey Epstein” HERE)

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’ as She’s Sentenced to 20 Years for Sex Trafficking

By New York Post. Ghislaine Maxwell’s victims said the convicted sex trafficker’s apology “doesn’t cut it” — as her attorney pledged to appeal her 20-year sentence handed down Tuesday.

Maxwell, 60, had bashed her former partner-in-crime Jeffrey Epstein as “manipulative” ahead of her sentencing in Manhattan federal court, adding she hoped her “harsh incarceration” would bring the victims closure.

“I wish she was sorry when she was busy forcing me into a room to be raped. She should have been sorry then,” accuser Sarah Ramsome later told reporters outside of the courthouse.

“As a matter of fact, there shouldn’t even be an apology. Rape is rape.”

Ransome, 37, had given a tearful victim’s impact statement saying she endured years of mental anguish and twice tried to kill herself after months of abuse. (Read more from “Ghislaine Maxwell’s Victims Say Her Apology ‘Doesn’t Cut It’ as She’s Sentenced to 20 Years for Sex Trafficking” HERE)

Calls for Action as Biden Voicemail Reveals He Knew of Hunter’s China Deals

The stunning revelation of President Biden’s 2018 voicemail about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China raises questions about the federal probe of the first son, legal experts said Tuesday — as Republican lawmakers vowed congressional hearings into the matter.

Former Justice Department prosecutor Jim Trusty called the situation “a huge integrity test” for the FBI and for Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Will they walk away from powerful evidence? Will they come up with a soft plea — like a tax charge — that does not remotely capture the actual wrongdoing?” he said.

“Or will they treat Hunter Biden like any other white-collar defendant in the federal system?”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said the recording “only magnifies the concerns over the failure of Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel with broad investigative authority.” (Read more from “Calls for Action as Biden Voicemail Reveals He Knew of Hunter’s China Deals” HERE)

Shock Report: Key Secret Service Figure Prepared to Undercut Jan. 6 Witness Testimony

Two key figures from the Secret Service mentioned in the Jan. 6 committee hearing on Tuesday have already testified to investigators on the panel, but questions remain about what they have said behind closed doors.

Bobby Engel, who was head of former President Donald Trump’s security detail, and Tony Ornato, the White House deputy chief of staff for operations, previously spoke to the House select committee, NBC News reported.

Cassidy Hutchinson, who was an assistant to chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified on Tuesday in a public hearing that she heard from Ornato that Trump grabbed at the steering wheel and lunged at Engel when told on Jan. 6 after his speech on the Ellipse that they could not head to the Capitol.

When Ornato recounted the story, Hutchinson said Engel, who was in the room, did not dispute any of it. Trump reacted on Truth Social, calling it a “fake story.”

After the hearing, CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a member of the Jan. 6 committee, and also said that Engel and Ornato have been interviewed by the committee. Raskin said he was not involved in either interview and claimed he does not know if either one was asked about this incident.

Biden’s HHS Unveils Website Directing Underage Women to Resources to Obtain an Abortion

Following the Supreme Court’s historic ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched a website to direct Americans to abortion and contraceptive services, including for minors.

The HHS’ website, ReproductiveRights.gov, gives visitors insight on surgical and medication abortions. Now that the issue of abortion was returned to the states, the laws pertaining to abortion vary depending on where a woman seeking an abortion lives.

“Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, access to abortion will depend on the state you live in even more than before,” the government website states. It then dives into the different types of abortion and how to obtain each kind.

“Medication abortion has been approved by the FDA since 2000 as a safe and effective option. Federal regulation permits medication abortion to be dispensed by telehealth and sent by mail via certified prescribers and pharmacies, in addition to in-person dispensing in clinics, medical offices, and hospitals,” the website states, and directs visitors to utilize the website AbortionFinder.org.

AbortionFinder.org helps women, including those 15 and younger, locate an abortion provider close to where they live. In addition, it helps women determine if they should obtain abortion pills via “telehealth,” meaning the patient does not meet with a doctor in-person to obtain or administer the pills.

FAKE NEWS: Donald Trump Denies Allegations He Threw Food at White House Wall

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday denied Cassidy Hutchinson’s allegations that he threw food in the White House’s dining room in response to an interview that former Attorney General Bill Barr conducted with the Associated Press.

Trump said after hearing the allegations:

I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and “leaker”), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down. Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible?

“I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!” he said.

Hutchinson, a former aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows claimed at Tuesday’s January 6 committee hearing on Tuesday that Trump threw food at a wall because he was angry with Bill Barr’s reaction to election fraud allegations.

Secret Service Agents Willing to Testify Trump Did Not Lunge at Steering Wheel

Two Secret Service agents are prepared to testify before Congress that then-President Trump did not lunge at a steering wheel or assault them in an attempt to go to the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, a source close to the Secret Service tells Fox News.

The explosive new allegations were made on Tuesday by Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone repeatedly warned staff in the days before the rally that “we’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable” if Trump goes to the Capitol, Hutchinson testified.

Following Trump’s speech at the Ellipse, he got into the presidential limousine under the impression that he was going to the Capitol, then had a “very strong, very angry response” when the head of his Secret Service detail, Bobby Engel, said that they were going to the White House.

“The president said something to the effect of, ‘I’m the f’ing president. Take me up to the Capitol now,” Hutchinson testified, relaying what she was told later that day by another White House aide, Tony Ornato.

Crazy Report: Dozens of Sailors Confirm U.S. Warships Were Swarmed by ‘at Least 100’ UFOs

Sailors on a fleet of U.S. Navy warships sailing off the coast southern California coast reportedly saw several ships in the convoy get “swarmed” by a host of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

“The incident went on for hours, and then happened again and again throughout the month, with craft hovering and zipping around near the fleet with flashing multicolored lights,” the Daily Mail reported about the July 2019 incident.

U.S. officials have dismissed the incident, with the Deputy Director for Naval Intelligence Scott Bray saying he was “reasonably confident” the UFOs were drones.

“But documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, says that crew from the ships have told him the swarms of ‘at least 100’ UFOs possessed unexplainable capabilities far beyond traditional drones. And he warned that unless the government can determine who was behind the swarm, the intelligence failure would ‘dwarf our mistakes made surrounding the events of 9/11,’” the Mail reported.

Ginni Thomas Responds to Jan. 6 Committee’s Official Request for Testimony

Virginia “Ginni” Thomas’s lawyer sent a response Tuesday to the January 6 Select House Committee, just over one week after they formally requested her testimony.

Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has become embroiled in the investigation into the January 6 riot, and the committee noted in their formal testimony request that they believe she has “information relevant” to their probe.

Mark R. Paoletta, Thomas’s lawyer, noted to the January 6 Committee that while Thomas is willing to speak, he does “not understand the need to speak with Mrs. Thomas.”

“Before I can recommend that she meet with you, I am asking the Committee to provide a better justification for why Mrs. Thomas’s testimony is relevant to the Committee’s legislative purpose,” Paoletta wrote Tuesday in response to the committee’s request.

Caught Red-Handed! President Biden Lied About Never Discussing Business Dealings With Son Hunter, Leaked Voicemail Reveals; Report: Hunter Lashes Out After Lavish Spending on Russia-Connected Escorts Revealed

By Radar Online. A newly leaked voicemail between Joe Biden and his son Hunter revealed that the president lied when he swore the two never discussed Hunter’s shady overseas business dealings, Radar has learned.

The startling development comes just two months after Biden’s former White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, reiterated the claim that the president and his 52-year-old embattled son never spoke about Hunter’s alleged deals with countries like China, Russia and Ukraine.

But a leaked voicemail that President Biden left on Hunter’s phone in December 2018, and now obtained by Daily Mail, says otherwise.

“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night,” Biden is caught saying on the voicemail. “If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you.”

“I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good,” he continued on the bombshell phone call. “I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you.” (Read more from “Caught Red-Handed!

Report: Hunter Biden Lashes Out After Lavish Spending on Russia-Connected Escorts Revealed

By Daily Wire. Hunter Biden spent more than $30,000 on escorts, many of those payments made to entities with Russian email addresses, from November 2018 and March 2019, according to documentation reviewed by The Washington Examiner.

The report said that Biden’s escorts were partly funded by his father, President Joe Biden, who sent Hunter $100,000 across multiple installments in December 2018 and January 2019. The Washington Examiner did not uncover any evidence that Joe knew about his son’s purchases of escort services, while some messages suggest that Hunter misled his father as to what he was spending the money on.

After the Examiner published the results of part of its investigation into records and messages contained on Hunter’s laptop, abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019, Hunter reportedly emailed a Washington Examiner reporter: “What’s wrong with you?” Hunter did not respond to a request for comment from The Washington Examiner before the article was published Monday. Neither did Hunter’s attorneys nor the White House.

A backup of Hunter Biden’s iPhone found on his laptop contained a number of messages to someone identified as “Eva,” who was affiliated with a foreign escort service called “UberGFE.” UberGFE appears to be located in Kyiv, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. It does business in Russia and the United States, according to information uncovered by the Examiner.

Former White House Staffer Confirms Jan. 6 Committee Lied About DOJ Attorney

Over the weekend, former Department of Justice lawyer Ken Klukowski called on the Jan. 6 Committee to release the full transcript of his deposition testimony to correct the lies they told about him to the American public. Now The Federalist has exclusively obtained a statement from a former White House staffer confirming Klukowski’s claims.

Last Thursday, the Jan. 6, 2021 show trial continued, with the Democrat-stacked committee presenting testimony concerning a draft letter Jeff Clark, a former assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice, proposed sending to the Georgia legislature.

That draft letter, dated December 28, 2020, stated the Department of Justice was investigating the 2020 election and recommended the Georgia legislature convene a special session to “evaluate the irregularities in the 2020 election including violations of Georgia election law,” and “determine whether those violations show which candidate for President won the most legal votes in the November 3 election.” The draft letter then suggested the General Assembly could appoint an alternative set of electors based on its findings.

The draft letter’s signature line included spaces for Clark, Acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen, and Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue. But when Clark pitched the idea of sending the letter to Georgia officials, Rosen and Donoghue rejected the idea out of hand, because it was “not the department’s role to suggest or dictate to state legislatures how they should select their electors,” and “for the department to insert itself into the political process this way,” Donoghue told the committee, “may very well have spiraled us into a constitutional crisis.” (Read more from “Former White House Staffer Confirms Jan. 6 Committee Lied About DOJ Attorney” HERE)
