¿por Ghislaine Maxwell Was ‘just As Un Predator’ As Jeffrey Epstein: Author

Ghislaine Maxwell was able to lure “young girls and minors” to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein because they saw “the woman figure as protector,” a biographer told Newsweek.

The British socialite is awaiting trial on allegations she helped Epstein groom young girls for sex while they were in a relationship in the 1990s.

Maxwell said in a recently unsealed deposition it was part of her job for the New York financier to find adult massage therapists.

Her accusers claim she groomed them to be abused by him with promises they would be helped in their careers.

The daughter of deceased U.K. newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell denies charges of trafficking and perjury and awaits trial in July.

Some of the allegations against her are detailed in new biography The Spider, published recently by Crown, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Author Barry Levine told Newsweek: “The most troubling aspect of it is young girls and minors certainly will look at the woman figure as the protector and they felt initially safe because of Maxwell’s presence.

“Oxenburg said that Maxwell confided that she was unable to keep up with Epstein’s sexual appetite and because of Epstein’s needs that were impossible to meet, Maxwell felt obliged to ‘bring in young girls to fulfil his sexual needs,’ according to Oxenburg’s account of the conversation.”

However, Levine is uncompromising in his assessment of Maxwell’s role in the abuse surrounded Epstein.

He said: “Jeffrey and Ghislaine kind of became a predatory Bonnie and Clyde of sorts.

“The most troubling thing about Ghislaine’s involvement is that she was willing to go through this because she believed that she was in love with him and wanted him to marry her in some weird, warped way.

“She allowed all this to carry on in a way to please Jeffrey.”
