Ghislaine Maxwell is fighting to ban any of her accusers from being called “victims” at her upcoming sex-trafficking trial — as well as any mention of “rape” by her late boss Jeffrey Epstein, court documents show.

The accused madam’s legal team filed motions in Manhattan federal court late Monday seeking to have 13 items excluded ahead of her trial next month.

They include a “motion to preclude testimony about any alleged ‘rape’ by Jeffrey Epstein” as well as a “motion to preclude reference to the accusers as “victims” or “minor victims.”

Others include a bid to “exclude evidence related to accuser-3,” who was not identified in the filing, as well as any law enforcement witnesses from offering “expert opinion testimony.”

The filing also seeks to forbid any mention of “alleged flight,” preventing prosecutors from suggesting the 59-year-old media heiress was on the run when she was busted in July last year in a New Hampshire estate called “Tucked Away.”

Another motion was to “exclude evidence of Ms. Maxwell’s alleged false statements” and “allegations related to the perjury counts” from her earlier on-the-record testimony in lawsuits.

There is also a motion to “exclude items purportedly seized during search of 358 El Brillo Way on October 20, 2005” — referring to Epstein’s former mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

Judge Alison Nathan has yet to rule on the motions.

Maxwell has been held without bail since her arrest, accused of procuring underage girls for multimillionaire pedophile Epstein to abuse in the 1990s and early 2000s.

She’s pleaded not guilty to the charges and requested five times that she be let out on bail pending trial. She was denied each time.

Her legal team has repeatedly complained about conditions in her Brooklyn lockup, as well as unfair press coverage that they’ve argued left her “tried, convicted, and condemned in the court of public opinion.”

The next hearing is a telephone conference Thursday ahead of a “firm trial date” of Nov. 29.

Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial for sex trafficking in a Lower Manhattan jail cell shortly after his arrest in 2019.

Samuel Pisar, the stepfather of Biden regime Secretary of State Antony Blinken, was a close confidant and lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert Maxwell. Blinken’s stepfather was reportedly the last person to speak to Maxwell before he mysteriously fell to his death off the Lady Ghislaine while cruising near Spain’s Canary Islands in 1991.

Most Americans may know Secretary of State Antony Blinken for his major role in the devastating Biden administration Afghanistan Disaster, or perhaps for his warmongering while working for the Bush and Obama administrations. However, many may not know that he has connections to the convicted pedophile, ritualistic sex predator, and international elite human trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who was identified as a Mossad agent who blackmailed world leaders with underage sex traps by former high-ranking Israeli intelligence officials.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert Maxwell was well-known in intelligence circles as a top confidant of Mossad leadership, National File Senior Reporter Patrick Howley revealed. Samuel Pisar, Secretary Blinken’s stepfather, was a close confidant and lawyer for Robert Maxwell.

Secretary Blinken attended the Dalton School until 1971. National File reported in June that the prestigious New York prep school employed Epstein in a teaching position only a few years later, in 1974. The school has a long and prestigious history of educating the children of wealthy families, and has employed several noteworthy figures including William Barr, erotic novel author and father of disgraced former Attorney General Bill Barr, who previously served as the school’s headmaster and hired Epstein.
Epstein purchased a $56 million mansion located just a mile south of Dalton School, where prosecutors at his sex trafficking trial alleged he paid “numerous” underage girls for sexual services. During his time at Dalton, Epstein’s strange behavior around young girls attracted attention. “It was weird,” one student said. “Everyone talked about it.”
Secretary Blinken’s stepfather was a close confidant and lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell’s father, Robert Maxwell, who mysteriously fell to his death off the Lady Ghislaine in 1991. Pisar is reportedly one of the last people to have spoken to Maxwell before his death, according to the New York Times.
Among those arguing against any signs of despair are Mr. Maxwell’s son Ian and his lawyer and confidant, Samuel Pisar. They are among the last people, aside from the crew members, to talk to Mr. Maxwell. Both men spoke to him by phone aboard his yacht, around 11 P.M., about an hour after he returned from a solitary dinner in a restaurant in the port city of Santa Cruz.

Mr. Pisar said Mr. Maxwell seemed his normal, confident self and discussed plans and appointments. Ian Maxwell told reporters that his father had planned to travel to London the following day and that their conversation ended with Ian saying, “See you tomorrow, then,” and his father replying, “You bet.”
From 1994 to 2001, Secretary Blinken served on the National Security Council staff. Leah Pisar, his stepsister, also served on the National Security Council staff during the Clinton administration. She also worked for the State Department, the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France, and was a communications director for President Clinton.

Readers may find it interesting that Secretary Blinken had once served as the director of a nonprofit organization now known as Action Against Abduction from 2001-2002, according to opencorporates, a global database of the corporate world. The organization was originally called The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children and then, Parents and Abducted Children Together, before changing their name to Action Against Abduction in 2015.
Action Against Abduction works to protect children from the threat of abduction. This includes abduction by a family member, by people who are known but not related to children, and by strangers. We aim to give parents the best information, and to ensure professionals have the right policies, so that we keep all of our children safe.
