Ghislaine Maxwell, who was Jeffrey Epstein close friend, had her emails hacked

Ghislaine Maxwell was probably Jeffrey Epstein's closest friend.  She may also have been his partner in crime, for she's been accused of procuring and sexually trafficking underage girls for Epstein and his party pals — pals who may have among their number many famous men, including Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.  Ghislaine denies the charges.

While there's no word about Epstein's little black book, people are looking nervously over their shoulders now that news has come out that someone hacked Ghislaine's personal email account.  The Daily Mail is on the story:

Ghislaine Maxwell's personal emails have been hacked, and damaging information, including the names of individuals linked to Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking case, are at risk of being publicly released.

The revelation was made in a letter filed by the British socialite's lawyers in the defamation case brought against her by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Guiffre [sic], DailyMail.com has learned.

The letter was sent by Maxwell's attorney, Ty Gee, on December 5 to New York federal court Judge Loretta A. Preska but made public last week. The letter addresses the materials that should remain sealed or redacted in the case.

It notes 'the difficulty and complexity' of the process as there are more than 8,600 pages, adding that it is 'difficult-to-overstate importance to the lives of Ms. Maxwell and the non-parties'.

Gee's letter says that the project 'could not be accomplished by scanning or speed-reading' as each page had to be carefully analysed to redact, for example, 'a surname or an email address'.

Prince Andrew may be especially at risk from the hacked emails, because it's known that he and Ghislaine exchanged emails about Virginia Giuffre (AKA Virginia Roberts), the underage teen who accused the prince of improper conduct.  In the email that got leaked, Prince Andrew wrote Ghislaine saying, "Let me know when we can talk.  Got some specific questions to ask you about Virginia Roberts."

Ghislaine replied, "Have some info — call me when you have a moment."

That's all very suggestive.

As the rich and famous are discovering, being rich and famous may allow you to engage in immoral and illegal behavior without too much fear of legal consequences.  What it cannot do, though, is insulate you entirely from legal consequences.  And almost worse than that, it leaves you terribly vulnerable to blackmail.

Jeffrey Epstein was believed to have kept detailed notes about every one of the people invited to his debauched and depraved pleasure palaces, including his airplane.  It's reasonable to believe that Ghislaine knew at least some of those secrets — and now the hacker does, too.
