Ghislaine Maxwell ‘set up powerful men with women they’d like’: Prosecutors in case to reveal emails

Prosecutors in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking case plan to reveal emails showing her setting up ‘powerful men with women they would like’.

In a court filing, the lead attorney claims the messages show the 59-year-old British socialite ‘using her ability to provide access to women as a form of social currency’.

Maxwell, the alleged madam for paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, was ‘eager to please’ the men and wanted to ‘ingratiate’ herself with them by making connections with women.

The 84-page court document does not mention the men by name.

New York prosecutors plan to offer several emails that show ‘the defendant took steps to please other influential men [than Epstein] by providing them access to women she selected for them’.

It claims: ‘These exhibits show (1) the defendant’s willingness to facilitate encounters between powerful men and women they would like, and (2) the defendant’s understanding that providing such access is a way to ingratiate herself with powerful men.

‘At trial, it may not be obvious to a jury that an adult woman would be willing to provide Jeffrey Epstein with access to young girls.

‘These emails make clear that the defendant was willing to serve in such a role, and that she was eager to please wealthy and influential men by providing them with access to women.’

Maxwell’s lawyers said that if she was trying to ‘ingratiate herself with a friend, so what?’

Their response document states: ‘If her motive is to permit adult women to date her single friends, then it is not to pick up schoolgirls off the street to give “sexual massages” to Jeffrey Epstein.

‘And if she already had access to other powerful and influential men who were in her life, she would not need her friendship or access to Jeffrey Epstein.’

The matter of the emails is set to be debated today at the final hearing before Maxwell’s trial.

The public phase of jury selection, known as voir dire, is set to begin in the Manhattan court room tomorrow.

Opening statements are due on November 29.

Maxwell faces six counts, including enticement of minors, sex trafficking of children and perjury.

The daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell denies all of the counts, which carry jail sentences of up to 80 years.

She is being held in a 6ft by 9ft cell at Brooklyn’s bleak Metropolitan Detention Centre and has set aside £5.2million to pay for her defence.

Maxwell ‘hired lookalikes to throw pursuers off her trail’ 

Ghislaine Maxwell hired a security company that used decoys to help her lie low after the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, it was claimed yesterday.

The socialite used a UK-based company run by a former paratrooper which sent lookalikes on to the streets of Paris to throw pursuers off her scent while she was in the US.

A photo of the decoys shows a woman who looks similar to Maxwell with a shawl over her head walking with a man who has a strong resemblance to her brother Kevin.

The extraordinary claim by security expert Matt Hellyer came as Maxwell revealed she gives cooking lessons to her prison guards and gave them a five-day meal plan for £7.50.

Guards from out of town ask her for tips on her favourite pizza spots in New York and she shares with them her favourite books, she said.

And she also plays games with the warders she says are making her life on remand a misery. ‘I play peek-a-boo, hiding behind pillars and the guards join in.

‘There are always smiles all round,’ she was quoted by the Mail on Sunday as saying.
