A-17 – Did Donald Trump Raid Involve A Document About Ghislaine Maxwell?

After Ghislaine Maxwell blamed an imaginary cellmate she named ‘A-17’ when told off in the clink, amongst documents seized from Donald Trump by the FBI is one titled ‘A-17’

In November last year, in a “world exclusive” interview with the Mail on Sunday’s Daphne Barak, the since convicted and deservedly jailed for 20 years mucky madam sex offender Ghislaine Maxwell bizarrely declared:


“Strange things happen [in my prison cell]. The toilet flushes, the shower turns on when no one is nearby. When it happens, it alarms the guards so I created a ‘cellmate’ called A-17 so when something strange happens I blame it on A-17.”


“I play peek-a-boo, hiding behind pillars and the guards join in. There are always smiles all round. Then I have a ‘monster move’ where I raise my hands and growl and they do it back. We laugh.”


Though the invention of ‘A-17’ were written off as the odd antics of a delusional deviant in denial of the serious crimes she committed along with her since croaked Ponzi scheming cohort and ex-lover Jeffrey Epstein at that time, now with the FBI’s recent raid on their former friend Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida that codename has again raised its ugly head.


Featured amongst 27 boxes, 11 sets of classified documents – which included amongst other things a grant of clemency for Trump’s mate Roger Stone and information on the President of France – seized is one listed as a box that has been referenced as ‘A-17.”


Kan M. Nawady, a former Southern District of New York federal prosecutor turned “seasoned trial, investigations and criminal defence lawyer” and ABC News contributor remarked late last week:


“This is exactly the same espionage that [Edward] Snowden was charged with… What that is, that is that it means they think that there was mishandling of top-secret information that was transmitted to unauthorised persons. This is the exact same statute that Snowden was charged with.”


“[These are documents that] if they get out there, it can cause exceptionally grave damage to our national security – so it’s really important stuff, it’s sensitive stuff.”


Could the 45th POTUS’ words of August 2020 about Maxwell be coming back to now haunt him? At the time, he remarked:


“Firstly, I don’t know that, but I do know that her friend or boyfriend Epstein was either killed or committed suicide in jail.”


“She’s now in jail. Yeah, I wish her well. I’d wish you well, I’d wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove that somebody was guilty. Do you know she was guilty?”


“Her boyfriend died in jail and people are still trying to figure out how did that happen. Was it suicide? Was he killed? And I do wish her well and I’m not looking at anything bad for her. I’m not looking bad for anybody.”


“And they took that and they made such a big deal and all it is is that her boyfriend died in jail. Was he killed? Was it suicide? I wish her well.”


One thing is sure and that right-minded people everywhere will continue to remind both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton that links to Maxwell and Epstein should not be left to fade away quietly. It is time that both former presidents explained at the very least why they were both so happy to spend time with and jet around the world with these two very wicked wastrels.


Documents seized
Receipts for property taken by the United States Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation from Mar-a-Lago, 1100 South Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach, Florida, FL 33480 on 8th August 2022 tellingly includes the codename used by Ghislaine Maxwell whilst she was in the Metropolitan Detention Center in New York awaiting trial.
Robert Maxwell 1989

Jeffrey Epstein Ghislaine Maxwell
Donald Trump, then-girlfriend Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell at Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach, Florida on 12th February 2000. Both paedophiles attended multiple events over many years at Trump’s club including one in 1992 where he celebrated being single after divorcing Ivana Trump and breaking up with Marla Maples. In addition, in 1997, Trump flew from Palm Beach to Newark with Epstein and Maxwell and attended a dinner for Prince Andrew at the taxi-driver-turned-Ponzi schemer’s New York mansion in in 1999.
Ivana and Ivanka Little Black Book
Phone numbers for the late Ivana Trump and her daughter Ivanka both feature in the now infamous ‘black book’ so often wrongly credited as being Epstein’s. The majority of contacts that ‘The Steeple Times’ have corresponded with listed there claim to instead have known Maxwell primarily. Some go as far as to claim to have never even met Epstein. Curiously but likely completely unrelated, both Ivana and Ivanka’s phone numbers contain the numbers 17.
The 62,500 square foot, 126 room mansion raided was built between 1924 and 1927 by the breakfast cereal heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. It has been owned by the brash businessman turned 45th POTUS since 1985 and is the 24th largest mansion in the United States of America.
Kan M. Nawady
Kan Nawady appeared on ABC News show ‘NewsLive Prime’ with Linsey Davis to discuss the FBI raid and the implications of it. He emphasised the seriousness of it and compared the situation to that of the in-exile in Russia ex-National Security Agency (NSA) employer turned dissident ‘whistleblower’ Edward Snowden.

  1. Matthew, I was wondering the same thing myself about the “raid”. Knowing nothing about A-17 prior to this, I don’t feel it’s a coincidence–not that I feel those exist anyway.

    I feel the raid was 2-fold, to protect whatever documents Trump had on Epstein and Maxwell, as well as a political ploy to get him back into the white house.

    Why anyone would still vote for anyone, is beyond me. The political system hasn’t worked for over 200 years, yet people keep doing the same thing over and over while expecting different or better results.

    Very interesting article–keep ’em coming, Matthew!

  2. I think any AMERICAN with half a brain knows what the raid was about. It was about J6 & to frame him.again,just like with the phony Steele dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton. The entire higher echelon of the Justice dept was in on it. All the things they accused him of is what the Obama people were doing themselves. Refusing help to our people in Benghazi,selling weapons
    grade uranium to Russia,gun running,secretly sending billions to Iran, a designated TERRORIST state in the darkness. Obama has his 3\rd with Hiding & he’s doing all be can to finish destroying America. The elites hate Trump because he is the most Pro American President’in 50-60″ years. We were energy independent, our borders were secure, lowest unemployment even before covid. THAT is why all this is backfiring! Btw, those agents involved in the Mal raid all being investigated by John Durham.


      • No paranoia here. You? Everything I stated is all Proven facts. It’s seems people are terrified (for whatever reasons) to question certain people in the U S government. Have yourself a good one now. Bless your heart!


    • I think what we’re seeing is clearly 45’s intention to sell secrets, as outrageous as that may sound. He does have a mysterious relationship with Putin, but any assertion that Trump is “the most pro American president” is simply idiotic. We have a traitor as an ex president and it’s simply astonishing!

  3. I watched all of your conversations with Shaun ..thats how I discovered you M. I olso miss you chatting live.
    This is interesting ..and I would like to know more about A-17…nothing would surprise me regarding The Donalds’ involvement. I feel its very possible that they all knew of each other before R. Maxwells demise. Why on earth wouldn’t they?? Ghislaine must still be counting on the appreciation of the deep insiders to serve as conduit to her past self and the life that moves on without her now. Its very intriguing and to me they are all very scary people. Silly Billy Clinton has a dark side it seems. I believe that he and Epstein were like brothers …we will be waiting a long time for a flicker of truth.

    • The 27 times Clinton flew with Epstein is telling. Trump is known to have taken at least 1 flight but not a long one with Epstein.

      I watched the ‘Ghislaine Maxwell: Making a Monster’ series (3 episodes) on Channel 4 (still available) last night. Some images I’d never seen before and the commentary from the two staff from the island was curious. Well worth a watch and will view ‘Surviving Jeffrey Epstein’ on their next.

    • It could just be a coincidence of course, but there was definitely something in all that “I wish her well” stuff from Donald Trump and also his suggestion that Epstein might have been “suicided.”

  4. Yes..his comments were messages to Ghislaine I think. Everything he says is a message…tossed to the opposition…whoever they may be. He addresses his perceived enemies ..he has no friends.

    • Sorry to.burst your bubble but he has lots of friends. People are sick.of the unequal justice system. Already 8 of 10 pols that voted to impeach have lost including Liz cheney. You don’t see the criminal Joe BiDumb drawn a crowd like Trump. They planted the phony Steele dossier. Even people that don’t like him.are sick of if. Bet ole Ray Epps knows a lot. Kamala is as dumb as joe as, she can’t get a coherent sentence out either. They wanted him to release the affidavit &, when he agreed the cowards back out. So looks like the criminals are actually the higher echelon of the justice dept. I would like to have the money back Obama sent to Iran. Good President for the America haters in the terrorist countries.

  5. Hillary Clinton had an ILLEGAL server in her basement while doing OFFICIAL U S Government business.THAT server was hacked into. After she & her staff personally destroyed 33 THOUSAND documents the old bag joked about it. SHE also sold weapons grade RUSSIA & afterwards Bill.Clinton demanded & got half a mil!ion dollars in speaking fees from RUSSIA! SHE is also the instigator of the phony Russian dossier,which has been proven to be a lie. SHE was the one doing exactly what she accused Trump of. Strange what the Marxist get away with while planting the evidence & framing other innocent people. Thank goodness chess there are about 14 or so in the Justice dept that come forward to tell the truth. Also,wonder what happened with Adam Schiff for brains @ the Standard hotel &,Eric Swawell aka fartwell & his Chinese spy lover &, Diane Feinstein had a Chinese spy for her driver. 🙄😏
