As Donald Trump looks set to pardon Michael Flynn, will he also somehow help Ghislaine Maxwell get out of jail also?
Whilst we reported in October that Ghislaine Maxwell’s family had been emailing all and sundry crackpot-likely claiming she is “looking forward to her day in court” as it will “give [her] the opportunity she requires to clear her name,” many have been left wondering if she will actually ever get there.
Since her incarceration awaiting trial, conspiracy theorists have repeatedly wildly suggested she could already be dead and on Monday it was revealed that she is currently in quarantine after a member of staff at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she is held, tested positive for coronavirus.
Elsewhere, this morning, the Guardian revealed that Donald Trump likely will, in the manner of what Bill Clinton did for his tax evading donor Marc Rich in 2001, pardon numerous dodgy sorts including his disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Though Ghislaine Maxwell is yet to stand trial, it is plain that Trump’s “good wishes” to the mucky madam in August contained a secret missive to stop her singing like a canary and now, goodness knows what could come next.
Could Donald Trump pull out a get out of jail free card for Ghislaine Maxwell? It might at this point seem legally impossible, but stranger bloody things have sadly already happened.
Just Trumps previous statement was very, shall we say unusual,
“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?”
His last sentence, “Do you know she was guilty?” He seems to be trying to imply some element of doubt.
Anyway, If she does manage to pull off some sort of coup and is released, she had better be looking over her shoulder where ever she goes, she knows far too much about some very powerful people.
