In Maximum Maxwell Hiatus Flashback to Arrest in New Hampshire and TED Talks, UN with Miliband

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 26 -- The last day of what would have to be the last hiatus of the US v. Ghislaine Maxwell trial, at least of US v. Maxwell I, had Kurt looking back to what he'd asked then US Attorney Audrey Strauss when she announced the indictment of Maxwell on July 2, 2020.

  Wouldn't charging Maxwell with perjury undermine the ability to use her testimony against other, larger defendants if she began a cooperator?


   Strauss replied that the testimony of indicted perjurers could sometimes be used. But how often? In the ongoing OneCoin case in SDNY, the for-now only alleged perjury of Konstantin Ignatov was being used to argue against the jury conviction of OneCoin money launderer Mark Scott.


  Kurt remembered Maxwell's appearance by video in front of U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire Magistrate Judge Andrea K. Johnstone; like the trial, he had live tweeted it.


  Then the bail denial, the first of a series, by Judge Nathan. A later bail request would be belatedly docketed, redacted, citing Maxwell's philanthropic work that included TED talks and "took her to the UN," where she had appeared with among others the UK's David Miliband.

  Had Judge Nathan known then that she would be offered a seat on the Second Circuit? She couldn't have been sure; the election and January 6 response had not yet taken place. But what had been known at that time, in July 2020?


 By the end of July 2020, Judge Loretta A. Preska had ordered unsealed more documents. Now the prosecutors said proudly that no plea deal, that is, cooperation deal, had even been offered. Why not? #MaximumMaxwell.


  Maxwell demanded that the perjury counts be severed, and that on the superseding indictment with a fourth victim / survivor added, she get an in-person arraignment. That, she got - with a call-in line like the one Kurt requested for the trial but was denied by Judge Nathan.


After Judge Nathan denied her bail, Maxwell asked to be released to general population in the MDC, and for the names of the then-three victims / survivors in the indictment.

  Judge Nathan denied both requests, as she later did Kurt's request for a public call-in line to the trial and Maxwell's request for all the photos and videos seized from Epstein's 9 East 71st Street mansion. Where had that evidence gone? #MaximumMaxwell.

And so it continued.  Click here for Patreon and more (2d).

Note: On October 29, 2021 and again on November 12 Ghislaine Maxwell and the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York filed a flurry of motions in limine, heavily redacted; the Government argued that trial exhibits are not public and will be withheld. Inner City Press opposed and opposes the continued secrecy.

Inner City Press will cover the trial, and all the comes before and after it; #CourtCaseCast and song I, Song 2, Song 3, fifth song and now Nov 27 song

The underlying case is US v. Maxwell, 20-cr-330 (Nathan).
