Any news of petty indignities being visited upon this degenerate is enjoyable. And — fingers crossed! — I do think the feds will prevent her from following Epstein’s lead by killing herself. It’s hard enough to convince Americans that he died by his own hand even though it’s all too plausible that the feds might have fallen down on the simple job of keeping him alive. If Maxwell managed to slip through their fingers due to incompetence as well, there’s not a man or woman alive in the United States who could be convinced afterward that she wasn’t murdered.
As a matter of basic, basic, basic public trust in the institution, the DOJ needs to make sure she stands trial.
Let’s be real, though. The fantasy we’re all having about Maxwell rolling over on the entire Epstein pedo ring is unlikely to be realized. Unless the fabled videotapes exist and Maxwell’s kept them, the feds would have trouble making anything stick to someone she accuses. And just generally, it’s always foolish to bet on the rich and well-connected being made to pay for their crimes in America. It does happen occasionally and it’s deeply gratifying when it does. Certainly, there’s a fair chance that Maxwell herself will be put away.
