Lawyers for Hillary Clinton say she is innocent of the impending death of Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
Maxwell was arrested last week on charges she groomed underage girls to work in Epstein’s sex ring.
“My client will not be anywhere near the jail when Maxwell commits suicide,” said Trevor Manning, attorney for Clinton. “Mrs. Clinton has a full schedule, proving she will be unavailable to participate in the future death of this woman.”
Epstein was found dead in his jail cell last August while awaiting trial for sex trafficking. It was widely anticipated his trial would reveal connections to many powerful people, including former President Bill Clinton. The death was ruled a suicide, but many suspect foul play.
The FBI says they are getting a head start on the Maxwell death before it happens. “Maxwell’s suicide is inevitable,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray. “If Hillary Clinton is going to be behind this, we want to know ahead of time.”
