Rich, powerful and famous will be ‘sweating tonight,’ Piers Morgan warns — Analysis

Broadcaster questions whether convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell will “sing” for leniency

Piers Morgan, a controversial British broadcaster has suggested that Ghislaine Maxiwell might testify against rich and powerful connections to avoid a harsh jail sentence. Commentators pointed out that Morgan may also be one of them.

“Will vile sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell now sing like a canary to avoid spending the rest of her life in prison?”Morgan sent a tweet Wednesday night. “If she does, there could be a lot of rich, powerful & famous people sweating tonight … and not sweating.” 

The latter remark came as an apparent tongue-in-cheek reference to Prince Andrew, who is accused of sexually abusing a child, and once claimed in a bizarre interview that he doesn’t sweat.

Maxwell, who is now awaiting sentencing in New York, was a long-time friend and romantic partner of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, whose death in jail in 2019 was deemed a suicide by authorities. A jury found Maxwell, 60 years old and an alleged British socialite guilty of the pedophile’s suicide on Wednesday. “madam”Five sex crimes that involved the trafficking or conspiracy to traffic underage girls were committed. Some of these women claim they were abused by both Epstein and Maxwell at the former’s luxury properties.

Maxwell and Epstein had a friendly relationship with elites on both sides. Bill Clinton, for example, flew aboard Epstein’s private jet – nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express’ – 26 times, and the aforementioned Prince Andrew visited Epstein at his Manhattan mansion.

Morgan was also known to have smooched with Maxwell. Comments on Twitter shared photos showing Morgan enjoying a laugh with Maxwell, along with shots of Morgan interacting with Harvey Weinstein and the celebrity pedophiles Rolf Harris, Gary Glitter and Max Clifford.

Morgan described these images previously as “unedifying,”And jokedHe needs it “to work on [his] clairvoyant skills.”

Should Maxwell stay quiet, the true extent of her and Epstein’s network may never be known. Following a deal between prosecutors and her legal team earlier this month, Maxwell’s so-called “little black book”Court orders will keep the names of all contacts secret. However, a copy of Epstein’s address book has ended up online before, and contained details for Donald Trump, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, lawyer Alan Dershowitz, actors Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey, several members of the Kennedy family, Peter Soros, and several dozen “massage”Providers, among other things.
