Ghislaine Maxwell accused of procuring underage sex partners for Jeffrey Epstein; reaction and analysis on ‘The Five.’
« The Five » co-hosts Katie Pavlich and Brian Kilmeade reacted Thursday to news of the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell by authorities in New Hampshire.
« Unfortunately, because Jeffrey Epstein is dead, the people who he did victimize, who are telling the truth about what happened to them — including underage girls — they will never actually get full justice because they never saw his day in court … , » Pavlich said. « He was never able to face his accusers. »
Epstein was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges when he was found dead at New York City’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in August 2019. He was 66; his death was ruled a suicide.
« And so I would hope that the Bureau of Prisons has had some reforms since the Jeffrey Epstein suicide, » added Pavlich, who noted that Maxwell will be sent to the same controversial facility. « You remember there were a number of prison guards that were reassigned or fired as a result of that screw-up. So, you know, it’ll be interesting to watch what they do in terms of watching this woman as she waits for her day in court. »
« With the way the guards nod off and the way the cameras don’t work, you never know what’s going to happen with that prison, » Kilmeade said. « They suddenly forget how to guard those VIP’s in there. So you worry, too. »
Kilmeade called for the focus to be on compensating the victim rather than the boldface names who may or may not be implicated in a potential trial of Maxwell.
« We hear about this crowd. They appear on Page Six. We hear what they’re doing. Their life seems great, but in many ways it seems corrupt, » he said. « And now they’re all running for the hills. So unless you can get the money for these victims, unless you could out some of these socialites … I would like to focus on getting money to those young girls, who are now young women, and try to rebuild their lives. »
