Prince Andrew is 'bewildered' over lack of response from US justice officials as he and Royal Family brace for new revelations after arrest of Jeffrey Epstein 'pimp' Maxwell

Jeffrey Epstein’s mentor Steven Hoffenberg says the late financier’s former flame Ghislaine Maxwell will be naming some big names when her time to testify comes.

Hoffenberg was Epstein’s partner when they masterminded one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in history in the late Eighties and early Nineties, which resulted in Hoffenberg being jailed for 20 years.

A one time close confidante of Epstein, Hoffenberg said he expect Maxwell to fully cooperate with law enforcement officials.

Maxwell, who was arrested in her sprawling New Hampshire mansion, is accused of assisting Epstein’s abuse of minors by helping to recruit and groom underage victims.

“They knew where she was all the time [in New Hampshire]. It was a question if America was going to take the case or not, now America has made up its mind to take the case,” Hoffenberg told The Sun.

“Andrew handled it poorly, very poorly, he should have spoken to them through his lawyers, and given them some guidance. He should have given them something.

“She’s going to cooperate and be very important. Andrew may be very concerned, and there’s a lot of people very worried, a lot of powerful people been named [in the scandal], and she knows everything. She’ll totally cooperate.”

The Prince has in the past denied all allegations and insinuations that he had any links to Epstein’s sordid past.

“Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue,” he said in a statement last year.
