After Ghislaine Maxwell was jailed for 20 years for her role in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring on Tuesday, their victims are now demanding an investigation into the deceased pedophile’s powerful friends.
During her sentencing hearing this week, the judge threw the book at Maxwell for procuring underage girls for Epstein and his mysterious “client list” to sexually abuse.
60-year-old Maxwell was jailed for two decades after being convicted on multiple sex trafficking charges last year.
As Slay News first reported, Maxwell named Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charity organization while begging for a lighter sentence.
In a desperate bid for leniency, Maxwell claimed in court filings that she helped “launch and develop” the Clinton Global Initiative.
However, prosecutors warned Maxwell that the information wasn’t enough to cut a deal and she needed to name other accomplices.
Maxwell refused to reveal details of Epstein’s powerful client list, and on Tuesday, the judge sent her down.
Lawyers representing Epstein’s victims are now urging U.S. authorities to investigate Britain’s Prince Andrew and any others connected to his crimes.
Andrew’s role in the Epstein scandal led to a spectacular fall from grace.
The duke, 62, has largely withdrawn from public life since reaching a $16 million out-of-court settlement with his rape accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre earlier this year.
Giuffre claimed she was trafficked by Epstein when she was a minor so she could be sexually abused by Andrew.
Lawyers for Epstein and Maxwell’s victims specifically named Andrew, demanding that the FBI investigates the prince.
Speaking outside New York’s federal court, Lisa Bloom, who represents several Epstein victims, said: “We call upon the FBI to fully investigate Prince Andrew.
“Virginia Giuffre’s civil case should be just the beginning.
“Everyone associated with Epstein and Maxwell should be carefully investigated.”
Spencer Kuvin, who represents several of Epstein and Maxwell’s victims, told the Mirror: “Obviously, Andrew is one of the targets they will be looking into. He should definitely be concerned, but… if he did nothing wrong, then come forward and tell the full story to the FBI, not the media.”
When asked about others possibly linked to Maxwell and Epstein, Brad Edwards added: “Let’s hope they’re the next target.
“If we have anything to do with it, they will be.”
