Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘recruiters, lovers and pals set to testify against Ghislaine Maxwell in her sex trafficking trial’


JEFFREY Epstein’s recruiters, lovers and pals are reportedly set to testify against Ghislaine Maxwell in her sex trafficking trial.

Prosecutors in Maxwell‘s trial said that material will include “any co-conspirator statements” – a sign that some of Epstein’s closest circle will help the state.

Nine weeks before the trial, prosecutors will tell the defence turn over to the defence “the identity of any unindicted co-conspirator” who they plan to call up to give evidence, DailyMail.com reported.

A filing from Maxwell, 59, which seeks to have the case dismissed says that one of her accusers was allegedly “encouraged to recruit other females to provide massages to Epstein“.

The filings seem to indicate that some of the four women who were named as “co-conspirators” when Epstein was jailed for having sex with children in 2008 could oppose Maxwell in court.

The women have been accused of being “recruiters, groomers, sexual partners and friends” to Epstein.

One is Sarah Kellen, 40, who allegedly had a rolodex of women she called to give massages at Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida.

She flew hundreds of times on Epstein’s private jet, the ‘Lolita Express’.

Epstein victim Sarah Ransome claimed that “Ghislaine and Sarah Kellen showed me how to please Jeffrey”.

Kellen said last year: “I’m no monster. I’m a victim of Jeffrey Epstein. I was raped and abused weekly.”

Another is Lesley Groff, 53, who was reportedly Epstein’s executive assistant for 20 years.

Nadia Macinko, 35, allegedly had sexual encounters with underage girls, and was an on-off girlfriend of Epstein’s.

Adriana Ross, aged in her 30s, is an ex-model who allegedly helped organise massages for Epstein.

EMAILS COULD BE REVEALED

Material to be used in Maxwell’s trial will reportedly include emails sent and received by Epstein.

Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Kellen, previously said she was a victim.

Ms Schmaler said: “Sarah continues to struggle with the trauma of her experiences and has chosen not to speak publicly at this time.”

Marcinko’s lawyer Erica Dubno, has said she was “severely traumatized” by her abuse.

Michael Bachner, a lawyer for Groff, admitted she made appointments for Epstein but “at no time did she engage in any misconduct”.

Maxwell denies the charges of trafficking a minor and conspiracy sex trafficking, among other charges.

It comes as Bill Gates has been urged to come forward and give evidence about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein – as it’s revealed he bought homes near the disgraced financier and one of his billionaire pals.

Lawyer Spencer Kuvin, who represents nine Epstein victims, told The Sun that Gates should volunteer any information about the perv or his pals that could help in the Ghislaine Maxwell investigation.

Gates and the billionaire pedophile first met each other in 2011 – three years after Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl in Florida – and met on numerous occasions.

Meanwhile, Maxwell has previously claimed a jail guard crouched “knee-to-knee” with her while she used the toilet.

The British socialite was also accused by guards of not flushing the toilet in her cell – however she blamed the smell on rotting pipes.
