Jan 7 -- It was the day of the first
real snowfall of the winter in New York City,
and Foley Square was white and empty. Kurt
tried a live stream but that too froze up. He
went into the courthouse and found some cases,
including some January 6 cases down in DC by
phone. Then came MaximumMaxwell news.
Scotty David, the chatty juror, had
said he worked in finance, and Kurt had
tweeted it at the time. But it was not a bank,
as many had assumed and Kurt had tried to
Google. (Scotty David and Citibank; Scotty
David and JPMorgan Chase, nothing).
it was so-called private equity firm The
Carlyle Group; they confirmed he worked there.
Kurt had written about them before, in
connection with Federal Reserve officials like
Jay Powell. They were rogues in Burma, or
Myanmar as Antonio Guterres and others called
it, and in the DR Congo. Now their boy was
trying to get Ghislaine Maxwell off,
intentionally or not.
the other side, for accountability, Carolyn
Adriano now again using her last name which
Kurt had known but not published during the
Maxwell trial, went on the record and said
that her, her procurer Virginia Roberts
Giuffre had told her at the time about Prince
Andrew, he of the Epstein dinners with people
from the UN.
Judge Kaplan take judicial notice? More to the
point, would the narrow prosecutors of the
SDNY now bring a criminal child sex abuse case
against Prince Andrew? Or as they'd been with
the UN, would they be afraid of their batting
average of convictions, taking on immunity?
wrote the stories and redoubled his research.
