QUESTION: Marty, this appears to be perhaps a loaded query. You may have mentioned that Epstein was most likely a honey-trap as a result of he was getting high-profile individuals concerned. Now the Queen stripped Andrew of all royal titles. You haven’t commented on this or the trial of Maxwell. Simply curious for you’ve got good perception.
ANSWER: Look, Virginia Giuffre was 17 when she alleged having intercourse with Andrew. She was paid for intercourse by Epstein and simply because she was just a few months shy of 18 she will get to demand cash and retribution for her personal greed. She is making an attempt to extract cash from the Royal Household, so that is simply extra of the identical. If she killed somebody, they’d overrule the 18 nonsense and cost her as an grownup. She was not a pre-puberty naive little woman.
At 17, had she had intercourse with Andrew in Britain, that might have been authorized. The age for consent there may be 16, not 18. That is why Epstein, I consider, was luring high-profile individuals in to control them for numerous agendas. I consider Gates was pals with Epstein, to not idiot round with ladies, however to make use of them strategically. I consider that’s the reason his spouse divorced him when she discovered he was utilizing ladies for honey traps.
When a traditional particular person thinks of kid molestation, you consider pre-pubescent youngsters. Andrew didn’t rape her. Giuffre was dwelling off of Epstein and was groomed for a objective. To me, she was an grownup. Most women wouldn’t conform to intercourse for cash at 17. Most could be shy and timid. They know what intercourse means. The truth that Giuffre agreed confirmed she put cash above her self-worth.
As soon as once more, Giuffre is crying sufferer once I suppose Andrew is the sufferer of Epstein’s plot to entangle him in one thing that could possibly be used for blackmail to get favors in Britain. Andrew has mentioned that Giuffre raped him thrice when she was seventeen years outdated. That really makes excellent sense for that’s what Epstein was coaching her to do.
This pretense assumes she didn’t perceive what she was doing when she was just a few months shy of turning 18. But, at 18, she abruptly realized what she was doing was fallacious? There are many circumstances the place a court docket determines that somebody may be below 18, however they are going to be tried as an grownup. Enijah Wilson was 17 and tried for homicide as an grownup. They need to have recognized that homicide was against the law even earlier than 18. Claiming they had been ignorant and naive of what they’ve achieved whereas 17 is an insult to widespread sense.
Sorry. Giuffre bought concerned for the cash, and he or she remains to be after cash now.
