Examples of Maxwell in a Sentence

  1. Virginia Roberts Giuffre:

    Ghislaine Maxwell is the most hideous dancer I've ever seen in my life, i mean it was horrible and this guy was sweating all over me, like his sweat was, like it was raining basically everywhere, I was just like grossed out from it but I knew I had to keep him happy because that's what Jeffrey Epstein of sex crimes and Ghislaine Maxwell would have expected from me.

  2. Virginia Giuffre:

    And when they say massage, that means erotic, okay ? That's their term for it, i think there are plenty of other witnesses that can attest to what massage actually means. And I'm telling you that Ghislaine Maxwell in jailIn told me to go to and give him a massage, which means sex.

  3. Jeffrey Epstein:

    You’re not comparing apples to apples and pears to pears, the allegations in the civil case are significantly different and involve different accusers. But Maxwell's conviction might provide slight corroboration to Giuffre’s allegations.

  4. Kayleigh McEnany:

    If I have to bet – these are a lot of slimy folks, Epstein and … Maxwell, and I believe she's singing, what incentive does she have not to sing? Maybe she gets out.

  5. Jeffrey Epstein:

    Juries are told,' Elie Honig can use common sense, folks. Elie Honig can use the good everyday judgment Elie Honig use out there in the real world,' and I think it's just absolutely unbelievable and implausible that Ghislaine Maxwell herself was somehow Ghislaine Maxwell or somehow didn't realize what was going on.
