MTG Proposes That Committee Hearings Should Be Held to Investigate Jeffrey Epstein’s Friends

U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) proposed today that committee hearings should be held to investigate Jeffrey Epstein’s friends.

Greene’s proposal comes as Epstein’s former girlfriend who helped him sexually abuse teenage girls, Ghislaine Maxwell, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for her offenses.

After making a number of tweets regarding the Jan. 6 committee hearings that were held today, Greene asked In a tweet, “You know what else would be very good committee hearings?”

“Investigating Jeffrey Epstein’s friends who enjoyed the hard work of this madam, who handed over minors to powerful men for sexual pleasure,” Greene explained.

Greene then added that “Maxwell named the Clinton Foundation as an organization she worked with.”

It was recently reported by The Daily Mail that Maxwell touted her connection to Bill Clinton and how she helped launch his Global Initiative to prove her “desire to do good in the world” as she sought a lesser sentence.

In a sentencing memorandum, prosecutors had pushed for the maximum sentence for Maxwell.

Maxwell should be sentenced to between 30 and 55 years in prison, prosecutors wrote in the memorandum after her maximum possible sentence was reduced in April from 65 years to 55.

The probation office, however, had recommended a 20-year sentence for Maxwell, while her lawyers argued that she deserved less than that and no more than 5-1/4 years in prison based on their review of federal sentencing guidelines.

Maxwell’s lawyers claimed that she was being scapegoated for Epstein’s crimes and had already spent significant time behind bars.

Prosecutors, however, weren’t buying it and said that the probation office did not take into account the cases of two additional women proven at trial to be victims, despite not being named in the initial indictment of Maxwell, and said that 30 years should be the minimum, based on their interpretation of the U.S. sentencing guidelines.
