Jeffrey Epstein accuser says Ghislaine Maxwell threatened her life, FBI "failed" her

One of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers, who says she had an inside view of his alleged sex trafficking operation, is sharing new details of what happened. Maria Farmer and her younger sister, Annie, claim Epstein sexually assaulted them. Farmer is suing the Epstein estate over the alleged incident. In her first TV interview, Farmer talks to Anthony Mason about why she’s still seeking justice even after Epstein’s death.

Guys, we need to keep this story going until Maxwell is caught.
The most shocking thing about this report is that CBS actually published it.

My children are victims of pedophiles and we are going through the same thing and fighting for our voices to be heard
It makes me so very happy to see CBS continuing to cover this story despite all other American MSM outlets dropping it due to connections to Epstein. Thank you.
The fact that Maxwell hasn’t been arrested yet is an indictment all in itself.
So glad all these strong woman coming forward and taking action

THIS is a great story! And her sad truth needs to be heard across this nation about that awful pedophile & his preying accomplice, Maxwell, who needs to be in jail for life. LIFE!

When they make mistakes they never try to correct it the FBI should have sent an associate or at least invited her to their headquarters to apologize that is why a lot of people can't get over stuff others want to pretend they don't exist.

Being threatened as a survivor..happens all the time.
Why do you think so many are afraid to come forward?

Abusers..of power who use people
have a vested interest in silencing survivors.
Thank you for exposing this. However, why wasn’t the name of the security guard exposed: Randy Bowie
He’s been will smith’s body guard and has a security business

Well, this was never about the victims, it's about privacy violation, espionage and blackmail, abuse is the very least.
I love how theres more co-conspirators involved and the media just points to Epstein/maxwell like they’re the leaders..
Delighted Ghislaine Maxwell has been arrested by FBI today - hopefully Justice will be served
Yvette Torres
Yvette Torres:
Andrew, Gislane, Alan Gertuwitz, and all other enablers need to continue to be investigated and held legally responsible. VICTIMS LIVES MATTER
Where is gizzlane? These are real accusations
So glad they arrested Ghislaine. Thank you to Maria Farmer and the other survivors!

Its heartbreaking to hear what you went through, and are still going through.
We need to systematically take out the FBI, and CIA, period.
Both of those organizations should not be ABOVE the laws of our country, ABOVE the LAWS OF OUR CONSTITUTION!
If they are above the law, then so are WE THE PEOPLE!
It is time for a major upheaval of our so called -legal- systems, they have failed you specifically, and they have failed us!
The corruption has to be stopped!
Miss Maxwell needs someone to give her a few phone calls telling *her* to look over her shoulder when she leaves the house.

Maxwell's crook father was named Lydwick Hooc, so that's not her real name.
There are some situations where someone will do something for you for nothing. If you are receiving some kind of social services help, maybe, or when a friend gives you a ride or does something for you without any strings attached.

Some wealthy guy takes you to some secluded home with him to support your art? I know that to an innocent person that may seem benign but her parents literally had to be stupid to allow her to go there alone.

Remember Michael Jackson and how he would keep kids at his home? How did that turn out?

Why are people so trusting with strangers?

In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure no one listens.

I feel like SEE-BS is involved somehow...
A lot of young girls choose the fast way of getting things in life. Nobody blames them for being prostitutes and after certain age you can tell what's going on around you. So young girls- work hard and avoid old creepy guys !
King Kosha
King Kosha:
Why do I feel like she is more involved than she pretends to be. She only pretends to cry once. She smiles and laughs through the entire interview. She even claimed she “called” him the wizard behind the curtain.. why is that important? It proves that she was knowledgeable of all of the actions BEFORE she was told she couldn’t leave. So she was compliant until it happened to her
Somehow seems the burst of motivation is for money right... maybe what caused the problem in the first place. I don't know but why was she even hanging out with him?

Reminder that she's said on multiple occasions that she was deprived of food and seen as less than human because she wasn't Jewish

I hope everyone involved gets caught Outed in public & each victim gets rewarded for coming forward.Opposition will try play financial gains & dig dirt on victims .Got keep this case going 1st thing need get Ghislaine Maxwell extradited back if fled country in a court room seize her passport .I think intelligence agency heavily involved ,possibly number esp with powerful names involved over various countries
Staff will be weakest link ,people worked on private jet ,island drivers,maids,servants had to saw something Maxwell needs money ,roof over her head ,has to eat obv being protected by professional people Not easy simply vanish if havent got help .

Damn she exposed a lot here, even the FBI with her allegations. I hope she gets the justice she deserves.

She definitely needs to watch over her shoulder, if the government has no interest in protecting you. It’s very possible they can “silence” Farmer

The media reports never address the obvious issue about the role of the girls' parents. At the relevant times where were they, what were they doing, and what were they thinking when they allowed their barely pubescent daughters to become masseuses and/or go on jet-setting excursions?. The narrative about sexual abuse of these girls is grossly incomplete without such analysis.
