Birds of a feather, flock...well, you know the expression.
The expression looks like it could certainly be the case when it comes to hiring attorneys, as well. Ghislaine Maxwell, longtime associate and accomplice to Jeffrey Epstein and suspected child sex trafficker, has hired the same "New York Super Lawyer" that once represented one of Osama bin Laden’s henchmen, according to the Mirror.
Maxwell has hired Bobbi Sternheim to join her legal defense team ahead of her upcoming trial in 2021. Sternheim specializes in ‘litigating difficult and complex cases,’ according to her website. According to the report, she has represented clients involved in all types of crime, including "racketeering conspiracies, international terrorism, capital murder, and inter-state transport of pornographic media."
She represented Khaled al-Fawwaz, who was accused of playing a role in the twin bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 where 224 people were killed. Her client was sentenced to life in prison. We can only hope that "Ghis" is as lucky.
Sternheim also defended Minh Quang Pham, who was ordered by al Qaeda to carry out a suicide bombing at London's Heathrow Airport. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison in 2016.
Interestingly enough, and as was pointed out on a recent podcast, Maxwell isn't facing any crimes pertaining to engaging in sex acts herself with the minors. Independent reporter Whitney Webb of The Last American Vagabond, who is currently writing a book on the Epstein scandal, spent an hour explaining the details of Maxwell's arrest back in July:
Instead, Maxwell is going to be fighting charges of "Conspiracy and seduction of minors to travel to and participate in illegal sexual acts; Seduction of a minor to travel to and participate in illegal sexual acts; Conspiracy to transport minors to participate in criminal sexual acts; Transport of a minor to participate in criminal sexual acts; and two counts of perjury."
Maxwell awaits a 2021 trial.
