Deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, has claimed via her attorneys that one of her fellow inmates was offered money to murder her.
“One of the female inmates in Ms. Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms. Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep,” Maxwell’s attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, wrote in a motion filed Wednesday, according to the New York Daily News.
“The inmate who made the threat has been moved to the SHU [special housing unit], presumably to protect Ms. Maxwell. This incident reflects the brutal reality that there are numerous prison inmates who would not hesitate to kill Ms. Maxwell — whether for money, fame, or simple ‘street cred.'”
Horrifying if true, yes? And it’d certainly fit, or so the conspiracy theorists who believe Epstein himself was murdered behind bars would argue.
But there’s a major catch.
The motion was filed ahead of Maxwell’s 28th sentencing as part of an effort by Sternheim to secure a lighter sentence for his client. Based on this alone, some critics wonder whether the threat to Maxwell’s life was made up. They argue that if she was under that much of a threat, she would have been “suicided” like Epstein a long time ago:
She will lie to the bitter end.

If those involved wanted her silence she would be suicided since last year

In fairness to those who believe this, Maxwell has been unsuccessfully scheming and plotting from day one to overturn her conviction and avoid facing punishment.
“The judge in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking case has upheld her conviction, according to a ruling issued Friday. In rejecting Maxwell’s request for acquittal, Judge Alison Nathan said the guilty verdict was ‘readily supported by the extensive witness testimony and documentary evidence admitted at trial,'” The Guardian reported in late April.
Meanwhile, in addition to citing the alleged threat on Maxwell’s life in the motion filed Wednesday, her attorney also trotted out a sob story about her childhood.
“The filing also revealed graphic allegations of abuse Maxwell allegedly suffered at the hands of her father, disgraced British publishing baron Robert Maxwell. It describes her upbringing as ‘a difficult, traumatic childhood with an overbearing, narcissistic, and demanding father,’ who died in 1991, right before she met Epstein,” according to the Daily News.
“Ghislaine vividly recalls a time when, at age 13, she tacked a poster of a pony on the newly painted wall of her bedroom. Rather than mar the paint with tape, she carefully hammered a thin tack to mount the poster. This outraged her father, who took the hammer and banged on Ghislaine’s dominant hand, leaving it severely bruised and painful for weeks to come,” Sternheim reportedly wrote.
This “corporal punishment” allegedly primed Maxwell to be manipulated by Epstein, Sternheim claimed: “It made her vulnerable to Epstein, whom she met right after her father’s death. It is the biggest mistake she made in her life and one that she has not and never will repeat.”
FYI, it’s a mistake she repeated for decades on end …
All this being said, some believe the threat to Maxwell’s life is real but simply don’t care because of the hideous nature of the crimes she’s been convicted of perpetrating. To hear these critics tell it, she deserves no less, and they have zero sympathy for whatever’s troubling either her heart or her chances of living another day.
Sounds like prison suits her.

I had a difficult childhood too, but never wanted to rape children over it.

Lots of people who have suffered from trauma don’t in-turn inflict trauma upon others. Nice try.

You get the picture.
The last set of critics says maybe she should be offered some leniency … but only in exchange for the client list.
Attorneys for Ghislaine Maxwell have requested she be sentenced “well below” the 20 years recommended in her federal sex-trafficking case.
Where’s the client list?
— Be Light ☀️ (@BBeeLight1) June 16, 2022
But incidentally, this list is why some conspiracy theorists believe that someone killed Epstein. The theory is that by killing him, they were able to prevent him from releasing the client list on his own as part of a plea deal.
However, if this is true, then the question then becomes why is Maxwell still alive …?
