Ghislaine Maxwell arrested

CELEBITCHYA little under a year of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged suicide while awaiting trial on human trafficking and sex crimes charges, here’s surprising news of Ghislane Maxwell arrested by the FBI on similar charges. Maxwell, who’s been accused of “help[ing] Epstein groom teen girls for sex with the rich and powerful,” is now formally charged with just that. She’s expected to appear in court later today to answer to a charge of “conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts”

If that sentence wasn’t long enough for you, don’t worry — there’s a *ton* more to this story
