The Maxwell women is a goner if she knows anything important and spills the beans.Occam's Razor suggests to me that Epstein and his cohort of pals are just an example of a certain moneyed class assuming they are above the law, and that the law is just for the little people.
I don't think there was any great philosophical move behind it. It is just criminality of a Versailles stripe because the people involved assumed they were immune because of the political power involved.
I certainly hope that this Maxwell woman is hauled in by the Feds because from what I've read she is the one sitting on the powder-keg now that Epstein is out of the picture.
I wouldn't be taking any sea-fishing trips any time soon if I were her.
