Ghislaine Maxwell 'Barricaded' Herself in Prison Conference Room with Legal Documents
Epstein madam created ‘security threat’
The late Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, tried to 'barricade' herself in a prison conference room with a cart of explosive legal documents, according to prosecutors.
The Epstein "madam" blocked the door and prevented guards from accessing the room, creating a security threat.
Maxwell was forced to carry materials from her cell to the conference room and was banned from bringing the cart in.
The news comes amid reports of Maxwell's conditions in the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, New York.
Since July, Maxwell has been in prison after she was arrested for allegedly recruiting children for Epstein to abuse.
There have been disputes about the cleanliness of Maxwell's cell, along with allegations she doesn't flush her toilet, and how she got the black eye.
Prosecutors said in a letter to a federal court in New York that Maxwell had been able in the past to bring a 'cart full of legal materials to the video conference room.
"However, the defendant used that cart to barricade the door to the VTC room, thereby preventing MDC staff from being able to access the room.
"Because of the security threat posed by the use of the cart to barricade the door to the VTC room, the defendant is no longer permitted to bring the cart into the room.
"Instead, the defendant may bring whatever materials she can carry into the room, and if she needs other materials during a particular meeting with counsel, she may leave the VTC room, retrieve those materials by hand, and then return to her meeting with counsel."
The letter was responding to complaints from Maxwell's lawyers that her access to video conferences was disrupted.
Her lawyers claim her screen went "in and out, and her screen often turned green and became blurry."
During one call, somebody besides Maxwell appeared on the screen, suggesting it was insecure.
Prosecturer responded by saying after the incident, the MDC switched to another form of video conferencing.
Maxwell lawyer Bobbi Sternheim said she 'never' tried to block her door with the cart and stop the guards from getting in.
In a letter, she wrote that prosecutors "cannot resist the opportunity to gratuitously cast Ghislaine Maxwell in a negative light while it defends the Metropolitan Detention Center at all costs."
Judge Alison Nathan said that after hearing from both sides, she "remains confident that Ms. Maxwell is fully able to communicate with her defense counsel and to prepare for trial."
Last month, Neon Nettle reported a judge ordered dozens of bombshell documents about Maxwell's personal affairs to be unsealed and made public, many of which expose details about child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Judge Loretta Preska shot down arguments from Maxwell's lawyers, who claimed that unsealing the documents would impact Maxwell's right to a fair trial in November.
The judge ordered the documents to be made public in two weeks' time.
Among the docs are Maxwell's efforts to quash requests to obtain her financial records from Epstein's child victim Virginia Robert
Bill Clinton's relationship with Epstein and Maxwell came under intense scrutiny when the financier was arrested in July 2019.
Clinton flew on Epstein's plane dozens of times, and photographs have shown him receiving a neck massage from Chauntae Davies, one of Epstein's victims who worked as a flight attendant on his private jet, known as the "Lolita Express."
