As Jury Hears Rapp Seethed at Spacey's Rise What of Flights on Epstein's Lolita Express?

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

LITERARY SDNY, Oct 6 – It was the first day of the Anthony Rapp versus Kevin Spacey trial, and damn if it didn't actually start on the first day.

 By 2 pm the jury was selected and Rapp's lawyer Peter Saghir showed the juror a photo of 14 year-old Anthony, and described him retreating to Spacey's bedroom since all the party attendees were adults. Soon they were gone and Spacey, glassy-eyed, was on top of him, grinding against his hip. 

 Less than an hour later Spacey's attack-dog lawyer Jennifer Keller was telling a different story. Rapp had known that Spacey didn't have an erection, she said, and Rapp knew all about those.

She said Rapp was seething with resentment as Spacey's career took off: American Beauty, House of Cards, Rapp couldn't take it. So he repeated again and again that he had been sexually assaulted. But hadn't he willingly done to the Limelight club? 

  But if Spacey's lawyer could tell the jury about Rapp's actions in the years since 1986, including throwing pencils at a video screen streaming Spacey accepting yet another reward, couldn't they also know what Spacey had gotten up to as he rose, up in Jeffrey Epstein's plane with Bill Clinton?

 Kurt Wheelock, who had been reporting on the case from the beginning, picking up steam when Spacey appeared as a minor character in the periphery of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, riding on the Lolita Express, wondered if Keller would take this approach if Rapp were a woman, if this was the more conventional Me Too case.

 There was other echoes of Ghislaine's trial, Maximum Maxwell, more on Patreon here.
