Shock Video: Fox News Star Defends Accused Pedophile/Sex Trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell

(Liberty Bell) – Fox News resident liberal Geraldo Rivera has it in him to be reasonable and rational at times though he mostly serves as an apologist for and defender of the radical left.

His recent defense of accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, however, has caused quite the controversy. Geraldo is apparently outraged that Maxwell did not get the opportunity to be released from prison to await trial on bail.

Despite the fact that she is a clear flight risk, Rivera insisted Monday on Fox News’ The Five that she should have been given bail.

Maxwell is charged with sex trafficking of a minor, enticing and transporting minors to engage in illegal sex acts and three conspiracy counts. She is a known accomplice of the notorious Jeffery Epstein who was “suicided” while awaiting trial in federal prison.

“Ghislaine Maxwell has been in jail for 17 months for no bail. They gave her no bail. She is sitting in prison prior to trial. Accused of, get this, of events that happened between 1994 around 1997,” Rivera argued incredulously.

“She’s a flight risk,” explained co-panelist Dagen McDowell.

“A flight risk? She offered to put up a $28.5 million bond,” Rivera shot back.

“She’s going to escape to a country that has no extradition,” responded co-host Jesse Watters.

“You, you, you take her… you, throw her in solitary confinement, 17 months,” an irritated Rivera asserted.

After Geraldo calmed down from his hissy-fit, McDowell read why federal statutes indicate bail should be withheld for Maxwell.

“Let me educate you really quickly. Let me speak. This is the segment I’m running. Here’s the Federal bail law. You’re allowed, in 1984, Congress passed federal bail law. You’re allowed to deny bail on two grounds: flight risk and danger to the community,” McDowell explained.

“Where is Ghislaine Maxwell gonna hide?” Rivera asked, to which Watters promptly replied, “Everywhere.”

“Way to stand up for a sex trafficker,” McDowell added.

It’s truly baffling that Geraldo feigned such indignation of Maxwell being denied bail but is apparently totally OK with the Jan. 6 political prisoners being held in federal prisons, where they are enduring horribly inhumane conditions and treatment, while they await trial. Some are even still awaiting charges.

Take note: Geraldo comes to the defense of accused pedophile sex trafficker but has nothing to say about political prisoners in the US.

Social media dragged Geraldo and even suggested perhaps he would be revealed as an Epstein associate during the trial. That would explain why he is in such a tizzy over Maxwell being denied bail and the opportunity to flee.

Geraldo certainly does appear to be a little nervous about Maxwell finally getting her day in court. Wonder why.
