Hours after her arrest, prosecutors revealed that Ghislaine Maxwell may cooperate in federal investigation despite the charges against her.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested on Thursday morning in New Hampshire and is expected to appear in federal court today.
The British socialite and former girlfriend of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein is facing six charged including grooming underage women to have sex with Epstein, sexual abuse and two counts of perjury – and she could be subject to more charges.
The acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Audrey Strauss, revealed in a press conference that she wasn’t worried about Maxwell’s perjury charge when it came to her ability to testify against others.
“In the event that if she even were to become a cooperator, I think we could deal with that,” Strauss said.
There is an ongoing investigation into the alleged sex trafficking ring run by Epstein and Maxwell, they are currently the only people charged in the case.
Prince Andrew, who has face backlash for his friendship with Epstein and been accused of sleeping with one of the victims on several occasions, has been urged to speak with the FBI given Maxwell’s arrest.
During today’s extraordinary press conference, acting Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss: “We would welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk to us, we would like to have the benefit of his statement.
“Our doors remain open and we would like to hear from him and have the benefit of his statement.”
Andrew has denied the claims against him and U.S. authorities have said he has denied requests for an interview.
But Andrew sources tonight said they were “bewildered” at the comments – claiming they twice last month contacted prosecutors in the US.
His legal team has “reached out” to lawyers on “a senior level” in the US in the past four weeks but say received no reply.
The source close to the Andrew said: “The Duke’s team remains bewildered given that we have twice communicated with the DoJ in the last month and to-date, we have had no response.”
The grooming of underage women allegedly took place in Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse, Florida, New Mexico and Maxwell’s home in London from 1994 to 1997.
Arrested over a year ago, Epstein, 66, was charged with sleeping with underaged girls in the early 2000s.
Epstein allegedly committed suicide while an inmate at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in August 2019.
Strauss said the case against Maxwell is the “prequel” to the earlier case against Epstein, New York Post reported.
In regards to her perjury charges, Strauss said she lied because the truth was unspeakable.
“Maxwell enticed minor girls, got them to trust her and then delivered them into the trap she and Epstein had set for them,” she said.
