Maxwell claimed that helping launch the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) showed that she has a “desire to do good in the world.”
Maxwell will be sentenced on June 28, after being found guilty of trafficking ad sexually abusing underage girls last December.
The Independent reported:
She also claimed that guards inside the prison where she is currently being held told her “there was concern she could be shot by a sniper.”
The explanation was supposedly the reason why she was held in such high-security conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Her legal filings accuse prosecutors of ‘scapegoating’ Maxwell by making her a “proxy” for the crimes of Epstein, who hanged himself while awaiting trial in 2019.
In her 77-page filing, Maxwell references Maxwell’s “history of philanthropy, charitable work, and helping others namely her work with the Clinton Global Initiative.”
The filing states: “Ms. Maxwell has always worked hard. Her many educational, occupational, and avocational accomplishments include becoming an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), a helicopter pilot, a submersible pilot, a banker; partnering with the Cleveland Clinic to establish a telemedicine platform to enable people in remote areas to obtain quality medical treatment; helping develop the Clinton Global Initiative, and supporting a variety non-profit and charitable organizations.”
In a later section, the document states that Maxwell is not an “heiress, villain, or vapid socialite.”
Her lawyer wrote: “She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world.”
“She has supported friends and family through tough times and personal crisis and currently is assisting women in her unit at the MDC. She has endeavored to contribute to society…by helping launch the Clinton Global Initiative.”
The claim put a renewed spotlight on the links between Maxwell, Epstein, and Clinton.
The Daily Mail also noted that a document stated: “The treatment imposed on Ms. Maxwell was unnecessarily and intentionally degrading and threatening. While in isolation, a high-ranking prison guard told Ms. Maxwell that there was concern that she would be shot by a sniper. Putting aside the reason and propriety of dispensing this alarming information, the diminution of security concerns resulting in her transfer to general population appears correlated to Ms. Maxwell having been sufficiently safegauarded to fill Epstein’s empty seat.”
Her sentencing will be on June 28.
