Ghislaine Maxwell tries playing the RACE CARD

    Accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has offered a novel reason for dropping the charges in her case: The federal grand jury that indicted her didn’t have enough black and Hispanic people.

    Lawyers for Maxwell, who is white, argued in court filings on Monday that because she was indicted by a grand jury in White Plains, New York, rather than Manhattan, the jury pool had a lower proportion of blacks and Hispanics than the community where she allegedly committed the crimes in question.

    “The fact that Ms. Maxwell herself is neither black nor Hispanic does not deprive her of standing to raise this challenge,” Maxwell’s lawyers wrote. The Constitution requires that a grand jury be drawn from “a fair cross-section of the community.”

    The grand jury was empaneled in White Plains because Covid-19 restrictions would have delayed proceedings in Manhattan. Maxwell’s lawyers speculated that prosecutors didn’t want to wait because they wanted the defendant arrested on the anniversary of financier Jeffrey Epstein’s indictment.

    “The use of a White Plains jury resulted in the systematic underrepresentation of black and Hispanic persons from the jury-selection process, in violation of Ms. Maxwell’s Sixth Amendment right,” the lawyers wrote.

    Maxwell, 59, was arrested last July 2, about six days before the one-year anniversary of when child sex trafficking charges against Epstein were unsealed. Law enforcement authorities said Epstein killed himself in jail in August 2019. The circumstances of the financier’s death have become a source of constant speculation, with those not buying into the official version alleging powerful people may have been incriminated by the testimony in Epstein’s case if he still was alive.

    Maxwell’s trial is scheduled to begin in July. She made an unsuccessful bid last month to be released on bail, citing “intolerable” jail conditions.

    Poor cow, I hope it is hell on earth for the evil sick woman for the rest of her life.
