Shortly after Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by federal authorities on charges of sexual assault on minors and facilitating the act, both Republican and Democratic members of Congress express their jubilation that justice could now be served for Epstein’s survivors.
After Epstein was found dead in his jail cell, Americans thought that true justice was not served, but many think he got what he deserved but took the cowards way out.
Now another woman has come forward and says that Maxwell raped her over two dozen times and that she would be willing to testify if authorities called upon her to do so.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D), who has advocated for victims rights and recently filed her Crime Victim’s Rights Act, stated on social media that “Maxwell’s arrest” was a “win for Epstein’s survivors,” but added that the variables that allowed for the pedophilia committed by Epstein and possibly Maxwell, were still in place.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz has also been highly critical of the “sweetheart deal” that Epstein received after being convicted of two charges and served 13 months of light custody. Incredible as it may sound, but police identified 36 victims that Epstein assaulted and that is all the time he got
Ghislaine Maxwell is charged with:
- Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
- Enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
- Conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
- Transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
Maxwell's arrest is a win for Epstein's survivors , but the structural issues that allowed them to get away with these crimes are still in place. My bill, the Crime Victims' Rights Act, would ensure plea deals like Epstein's would never happen again. https://t.co/OpoAerFnIN
