U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after Jeffrey Epstein's co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell, was charged with sex trafficking crimes. 

"This is good news. All of Epstein's co-conspirators, and especially Ghislaine Maxwell, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. She knows the depth of Epstein's sick crimes and the DOJ ought to do everything it can to keep her alive and bring her to justice. Wealth and power cannot overcome the law. These human traffickers must pay for their crimes."
