Jury Selection Begins for Trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, Accused of Grooming Jeffrey Epstein's Victims

  Jury Selection Begins for Trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, Accused of Grooming Jeffrey Epstein's Victims Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, has pleaded not guilty to six felonies, including conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts , transportation of a minor and perjury. She pleaded not guilty to all charges and has been held without bond in a Brooklyn, N.Y., jail. Authorities say she helped her longtime companion Epstein groom girls as young as 14 for sexual abuse — incidents that she allegedly participated in herself.

Lauren Boebert Faces Calls to Be Censured as Ilhan Omar Remarks Anger Democrats

  Lauren Boebert Faces Calls to Be Censured as Ilhan Omar Remarks Anger Democrats Omar has said Boebert's account of meeting her at the Capitol was "made up" and also accused her of bigotry.Boebert, a Republican who represents Colorado's 3rd congressional district, is also facing calls to be censured after a video was shared to Twitter of her relating a story about Omar and a Capitol police officer that concluded with a joke about a bomb in a backpack.

Prosecutors allege Maxwell, 59, groomed girls as young as 14 to have sex with convicted financier Jeffrey Epstein and lied about her knowledge of his crimes when she testified in an earlier case. She has pleaded not guilty on all counts. Epstein died in a New York prison cell in August 2019 as he awaited his trial on sex trafficking charges.

The British socialite's trial begins Monday in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan at 8.30 a.m. Prosecutors will focus on four women who say they were recruited by Maxwell as teenagers to be abused by Epstein. No cameras will be allowed in the courtroom.

Lauren Boebert Apologizes to Muslims for Ilhan Omar Comment, Calls It a 'Distraction'

  Lauren Boebert Apologizes to Muslims for Ilhan Omar Comment, Calls It a 'Distraction' "There are plenty of policy differences to focus on without this unnecessary distraction," the congresswoman tweeted on Friday.Boebert referred to her Democratic colleague as a member of the "Jihad Squad" during a discussion about the censure of fellow Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona earlier this month. Boebert received further criticism this week after a video surfaced in which she discussed riding an elevator with Omar.

The prosecution will outline the case and preview evidence and witnesses. The defense will allege Maxwell's accusers might have unreliable memories, according to a letter from Maxwell's attorney.

Virginia Giuffre, a woman who says she was trafficked to Britain's Prince Andrew as a teenager, is hoping to see "justice done" from afar as Ghislaine Maxwell goes on trial, her lawyer has said. Giuffre claimed Epstein and Maxwell flew her around the world when she was 17 and 18 for sexual encounters with billionaires, politicians, royals and heads of state. Giuffre sent the Daily Mail a photo of herself and Andrew together in Maxwell's London townhouse, his arm on her midriff. However, U.S. prosecutors won't bring charges connected to Guiffre to Maxwell's trial, and the accuser isn't expected to be called in as a witness either.

Boebert's comments about the Maxwell trial are not the first time she has courted controversy. She issued an apology to the Muslim community on November 26 for comments she made about Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Boebert referred to her House colleague as a member of the "Jihad Squad" during a discussion about the censure of fellow Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona earlier this month.

Who Is Maurene Comey? James Comey's Daughter Is Lead Prosecutor in Ghislaine Maxwell Trial

  Who Is Maurene Comey? James Comey's Daughter Is Lead Prosecutor in Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Maurene Comey, assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, is one of the lead prosecutors in the case against Jeffrey Epstein's aide.Maurene Comey, an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY), is one of the lead prosecutors in the criminal case against Maxwell, and had been picked to hold a similar role in the case of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein prior to his death in August 2019.

Boebert also trolled actor Alec Baldwin in October after he accidentally shot a colleague dead on the set of the film Rust. The actor was given a prop gun and was reportedly assured that it was safe before he fired it on set on October 21, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

Boebert, an outspoken gun-rights activist, resurfaced a seven-year-old tweet shared by Baldwin in support of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old Black man who was fatally shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

"I'm going to make bright, banana yellow t-shirts that read "My hands are up. Please don't shoot me," Baldwin tweeted in December 2014.

"@AlecBaldwin are these still available? Asking for a movie producer," Boebert wrote, alongside a screenshot of Baldwin's remarks. Boebert's comments drew backlash from Democrats and Republicans.
