Ghislaine Maxwell could not contain frustration as she 'pounded' desk during bad tempered deposition
Ghislaine Maxwell could not hide her frustration during an increasingly heated and bad tempered legal deposition that was unsealed in New York. Several times during the seven-hour exchange, which took place over two days, her anger boiled over as she was forced to answer repeated questions about allegations made by a woman she insisted was a serial liar. At one point, unable to contain her emotions, Miss Maxwell “very inappropriately and very harshly” pounded the desk, forcing them to take a break. She was being quizzed about Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s claim that she was just 15 when she was first introduced to Jeffrey Epstein at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, which she furiously insisted had been fabricated to make the story “more exciting.” “Can we agree she was not the age she said… that is obviously, manifestly, absolutely, totally a lie,” Miss Maxwell said. Sigfrid McCawley, for Ms Roberts Giuffre, interjected, stating for the record that Miss Maxwell had banged the desk “in an inappropriate manner.” “I ask she take a deep breath and calm down,” she said. “I know this is a difficult position but physical assault or threats is not appropriate so no pounding, no stomping, no.”
