Maxwell Trial Chatty Juror 50 Social Media Published By Inner City Press Amid Bid To Close The Docket

By Matthew Russell Lee Patreon Song Video Ruling
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Radio - Podcast Letter

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 12 – Ghislaine Maxwell, charged with six counts of sex trafficking and other charges, was on December 29 found guilty on five of the six counts. Inner City Press, which asked Judge Alison J. Nathan for a public call-in line and unsealing of exhibits throughout, live tweeted it here.

After juror "Scotty David" gave interviews, social media accounts went down - but see below - but Inner City Press kept digging, first publishing the information here, then here:

Scott C. Hagy, age 35, Carlyle Group. Global Credit Management. University of West Georgia, with a 404 cell phone number. A time gentrifying Brook Avenue in the South Bronx - note, no home addresses listed here.

But previously, the same Scott(y) - Scott Hagy Office Coordinator +1 (212) 338-9614 Office Address: 52 Vanderbilt Avenue, 20th Floor New York, NY 10017 Tel: +1 (212) 661-4060 E-... Jun 26, 2012 - with Prince Andrew connection.

  Since then, Inner City Press is informed of Juror 50 saying he only launched to the media when he got the green light from his bosses at the Carlyle Group. Judge Nathan on January 12 kept from the docket Juror 50's filing, asking / urging the US and Team Maxwell to propose redactions or complete sealing.

  Despite increasing indications of a more complicated story behind Juror 50's outreach, it is claimed that it happened organically, by spotting - but not including in the reporting - Juror 50's social media. Inner City Press is today publishing two screenshots from Instagram here and here. No inquiry? Into whose behind this gambit to relieve Maxwell from the guilty verdict? Watch this site.

The US on January 5 wrote in: "Dear Judge Nathan: The Government has become aware that a juror has given several interviews to press outlets regarding his jury service in this case." Full US letter on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here. Inner City Press immediate filing to unredact, still not docketed by Judge Alison J. Nathan, here.

   Again through the UK press, Team Maxwell has announced they have identified a third juror who may have lied on the juror questionnaire, with a fourth juror "in question." There is nothing in the docket.

  As noted during the trial by Inner City Press, for example with regard to Team Maxwell's Leah Saffian having and sharing her smart phone in the courtroom, there was something very wrong and untransparent about this trial. It was the secrecy, starting with the denial of the public call-in line and continuing through juror selection with press banned from significant parts, that allowed it. Now what?

   "Scotty David" (see above) fled photographers outside his midtown Manhattan apartment, shielding his face with a family-sized box of Cheez-Its. The private equity firm the Carlyle Group confirms he works for them. How then did Judge Alison J. Nathan appoint him a publicly-paid lawyer? And how that Scotty David has fired the free lawyer and says he has his own, who's paying for that? Who's paying? Podcast here.

On January 5 the defense, by Christian Everdell, sent in an even more heavily redacted letter, that "presents incontrovertible  grounds for a new trial under Rule 33." Then lengthy redactions.

Inner City Press quickly opposed these redactions, writing to Judge Nathan: "Re: US v. Maxwell, 20-cr-330 (AJN), Press request that redactions to US and defense letters about juror controversy be removed and other relevant documents unsealed; request should be docketed and ruled on Dear Judge Nathan:    On behalf of Inner City Press and in my personal capacity, I have been covering the above-captioned case, including repeatedly asking that sealing and redactions be reduced and that a public call-in line be provided (it wasn't).   Now on January 5 the government and the defense have submitted significantly redacted letters about juror "Scotty David" and his print and video interviews, requesting an inquiry or a new trial.  But the public and press have a right to know what the US and defense are arguing to the Court. Accordingly, the redactions should be removed forthwith, and all other relevant still-sealed or redacted documents be placed in the public docket    While appreciating that the Court docketed before denying Inner City Press' November 12 request for a call-in line, Dkt. 451, this is a request that this opposition to sealing be docketed as took place in US v. Avenatti, 19-cr-374 (JMF), Dkt 85, here."

Inner City Press covered the trial, and all the comes before and after it; #CourtCaseCast and song I, Song 2, Song 3, fifth song, Nov 27 song Dec 4 song and Dec 11 song (YouTube demonetized it) and Dec 18 song (no ads) and Dec 24 song (also no ads - demonetized by YouTube) and now Jan 8 on chatty juror from the Carlyle Group, not monetized, here (support here)

On October 22 the draft jury questionnaire was unsealed and Inner City Press has immediately published it on its DocumentCloud here, including "Have you or a family member ever supported, lobbied, petitioned, protested, or  worked in any other manner for or against any laws, regulations, or organizations relating to sex trafficking, sex crimes against minors, sex abuse or sexual harassment?" Photo here.

   After the death of Jeffrey Epstein in the MCC prison, on July 2 Acting US Attorney for the SDNY Audrey Strauss announced and unsealed in indictment of Maxwell on charges including sex trafficking and perjury.

   Inner City Press went to her press conference at the US Attorney's Office and asked, Doesn't charging Maxwell with perjury undercut any ability to use testimony from her against other, bigger wrong-doers? Periscope here at 23:07.

  Strauss replied that it is not impossible to use a perjurer's testimony. But how often does it work?

  At 3:30 pm on July 2 Maxwell appeared in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampsire, before Magistriate Judge Andrea K. Johnstone. Inner City Press live tweeted it here.
(Also live tweeted bail denial of July 14, here.)

   In the July 3 media coverage of Maxwell, media all of the world used a video and stills from it of Maxwell speaking in front of a blue curtain, like here.

 What they did not mention is something Inner City Press has been asking the UN about, as under UNSG Antonio Guterres with his own sexual exploitation issues (exclusive video and audio) it got roughed up and banned from the UN: Ghislaine Maxwell had a ghoulish United Nations press conference, under the banner of the "Terramar Project," here.

 On July 5, after some crowd-sourcing, Inner City Press reported on another Ghislaine Maxwell use of the United Nations, facilitated by Italy's Permanent Representative to the UN, UN official Nikhil Seth and Amir Dossal, who also let into the UN and in one case took money from convicted UN briber Ng Lap Seng, and Patrick Ho of CEFC China Energy, also linked to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

  At the Ghislaine Maxwell UN event, the UN Deputy Secretary General was directly involved.

List of (some of) the participants on Patreon here.

  Inner City Press has published a phone of Maxwell in the UN with Dossal, here. But the connection runs deeper: Dossal with "25 years of UN involvement" was on Terrarmar's board of directors, one of only five directors, only three not related to Maxwell by blood and name.

The directors: Ghislaine Maxwell, Christine Malina-Maxwell, Steven Haft, Christine Dennison and... Amir Dossal. Inner City Press is publishing this full 990 on Patreon here.

  Dossal has operated through the UN Office of Partnership, with Antonio Guterres and his deputy Amina J. Mohammed, here.

And the links to the world of UN bribery, including Antonio Guterres through the Gulbenkian Foundation, runs deeper. More to follow.

Antonio Guterres claims he has zero tolerance for sexual exploitation, but covers it up and even participate in it. He should be forced to resign - and/or have immunity waived.

  Terramar has been dissolved, even though Maxwell's former fundraiser / director of development Brian Yurasits still lists the URL on his (protected) Twitter profile, also here.

  But now Inner City Press has begun to inquire into Ghislaine Maxwell's other United Nations connections, starting with this photograph of another day's (or at least another outfit's) presentation in the UN, here. While co-conspirator Antonio Guterres has had Inner City Press banned from any entry into the UN for two years and a day, this appears to be in the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) chamber. We'll have more on this, and on Epstein and the UN - and UNSC President Norway. Watch this site.

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