Jeffrey Epstein’s Confidant Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested in New Hampshire, FBI Reports

Alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly committed suicide on Aug. 10, but there are still countless unanswered questions surrounding his mysterious death.

But authorities may have taken a major step forward in an attempt to get more answers.

On Thursday, the FBI announced that they arrested Epstein’s confidant, Ghislaine Maxwell, in New Hampshire.

Epstein’s former girlfriend and accused madam was arrested at 8:30 a.m. in Branford, N.H. The charges against her are currently sealed, Fox News reported.

Several questions also loom about the alleged child sex ring that Epstein operated, who all may have been involved, and how it all got started.

That’s the question being asked by Fox News star Mark Fuhrman, a former LAPD detective, who is questioning Epstein’s connections to Wall Street.

On his Fox Nation docuseries “The Fuhrman Diaries,” Fuhrman argued that the official story behind Epstein is “bulls**t” and that his alleged abuse of underage girls was likely connected to major players on Wall Street.

Fuhrman began by noting how no one seems to know how Epstein — a college drop-out — gained entry into Wall Street’s upper echelon — and, later, became a partner at a top financial firm.

“Epstein’s crimes may have gone deeper than we thought,” Fuhrman said.

“When I look at Jeffrey Epstein, you see this man who was not a stellar scholar at college. He didn’t go to an Ivy League school — he was a drop-out,” Fuhrman added.

“He ends up at the Dalton Preparatory School in Manhattan as a math teacher,” Fuhrman continued.

The former LAPD detective went on to detail how Epstein made a connection with a prominent parent of one of his students — which led to him suddenly landing a job at Bear Sterns, a prominent financial firm on Wall Street.

“All of a sudden, now he’s a trader?” Fuhrman asked.

“And then he’s a partner?” he added.

“I’m going to call bulls**t on this. It’s just too much. It’s over the top,” Fuhrman said.

He added: “You look at these positions on Wall Street, they’re coveted. They recruit from the best schools to get into these places, and here he was, 8 years later, and he’s a limited partner of the firm!”

“My question is, was his sexual activity going on there? Was he a procurer of sexual dates for people of the financial world?” he asked. “Did it start there? Was that his hook?”

Fuhrman argued that Epstein — who died with a net worth of around $500 billion — wasn’t some financial genius.

“Because there is no evidence that he was some kind of brilliant financial genius,” Fuhrman said. “And even if he was, as he continued into the financial world, he was deeper and deeper” into sexual deviance.

“It started from the beginning,” Fuhrman said. “That was who he was, and I believe his sexual trafficking and sex crimes go all the way back to the 1970s.”

There are still far more questions than answers regarding the Epstein case and his mysterious death earlier this month.

Epstein was arrested and charged last June.
