Epstein and Maxwell: “One Nation Under Blackmail”


WHITNEY WEBB, wwebbmpn at, @_whitneywebb
Webb is author of the forthcoming book One Nation Under Blackmail about the Jeffrey Epstein scandals.

She stressed that the indictment released today against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s longtime associate, is “for only three victims — [from] 1994 to 1997 — and the indictment states that Maxwell was involved in their sexual abuse directly (in terms of the sex acts themselves) but NOT charged for that.”

Webb tweeted: “They waited until after Bill Barr fired [United States attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey] Berman” and “They reportedly arrested her in [New Hampshire], they’ve known where she is this whole time, waited till now. Why now?”

She also notes on Twitter: “The fact the FBI won’t even touch or question Les Wexner (‘head of the snake’ of the whole op) tells you that any effort to go after Ghislaine is superficial.”

Webb was featured on an news release last year that drew on a series of her reports including “Mega Group, Maxwells and Mossad: The Spy Story at the Heart of the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal,” in which Webb examines the role of Epstein’s main financial patron for decades, billionaire Leslie Wexner.

She highlights that a main goal of the Epstein-Maxwell operation was to blackmail prominent individuals and “it’s important to mention that it was state-sponsored and involved compromising politicians [and] individuals so they would be supportive of policies pursued by that state. Sexual blackmail by intelligence has a long history, in the U.S. and elsewhere, and Epstein and Maxwell were merely using that same playbook (on a grand scale) for the benefit of their sponsors.”

Webb also wrote about Maxwell’s father, Robert, who worked with the Mossad “according to several books including Seymour Hersh’s The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy.” She adds: “In exchange for his services, the Mossad helped Maxwell satisfy his sexual appetite during his visits to Israel, providing him with prostitutes, [whom] ‘the service maintained for blackmail purposes.’” [Gideon’s Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad by Gordon Thomas]

Webb wrote her series on Epstein for MintPress. She is now with The Last American Vagabond. Her reporting there has included the pieces “Techno-Tyranny: How the U.S. National Security State Is Using Coronavirus To Fulfill An Orwellian Vision” and “All Roads Lead to Dark Winter.”
