Former FBI director’s daughter is on the prosecutorial team in Ghislaine Maxwell trial

Maurene Comey, daughter of former FBI Director James Comey, is one of the three main prosecutors leading the charge against Ghislaine Maxwell in the case associated with Jeffrey Epstein, the Washington Examiner reports. 

Comey and her fellow prosecutors will seek to prove Ghislaine is guilty of trafficking minor girls for sexual services as well as for abuse during the time she worked with Epstein.

Notably, Maurene Comey has served in another case involving Epstein.

Past Epstein-related cases

“When Epstein was indicted in July 2019 for numerous sex crimes, she served as one of the lead prosecutors against the deceased pedophile before his alleged suicide one month later.

“Another case she worked on was on Nicholas Tartaglione, a brief roommate of Epstein at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in 2019,” the Examiner reported.

Conflict of interest

Comey has the credentials to lead the case, but the possible conflict of interest situation has many questioning her involvement.

Many connections have been alleged between former President Bill Clinton and Epstein, as well as between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and James Comey regarding the 2016 election.

The numerous ties between those involved in the trial should be significant enough for Maurene Comey to remove herself from the case, some experts say.

More interesting tidbits

Critics have also taken the opportunity to remind the public that Maurene Comey was on the team that allegedly “lost” the Epstein video footage of when he reportedly died by suicide in a Manhattan jail.

The odd combination is certain to add more controversy to the already high-profile case as the world watches what could be the biggest trafficking-related court case in the nation’s history.
