Piers Morgan says powerful men will be sweating after Ghislaine Maxwell trial
Piers Morgan has said he believes "powerful men will be sweating" after Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of child sex trafficking charges.
Ghislaine, 60, was found guilty of five out of six counts of charges she faced, including sex trafficking a minor, at a New York Court on 29 December.
The verdict was reached after five days of deliberation by a 12-person jury following a trial that featured testimony from four women who described being abused by Jeffrey Epstein between 1994 and 2004.
Following the news, Piers, who recently shared a peak inside his living at his £4million London home, took to his Twitter account to share his thoughts.
Sharing a snap of Ghislaine to his 7.9million followers, he questioned: "Will vile sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell now sing like a canary to avoid spending the rest of her life in prison?"
The 56 year old added: "If she does, there could be a lot of rich, powerful & famous people sweating tonight… and not sweating."
Fans were quick to add their opinions as one person commented: "If she sings like a canary she'll be in greater peril. If she stays quiet, they'll ensure she's out in a few years."
Another said: "10 yr sentence, out on good behaviour within 5. She’ll be able to do that standing on her head".
"Isn't it a bit late for that? She should have made a deal to plead guilty… no?" another added.
It comes after Piers recently revealed that he was offered a huge sum of money to fake his own death and "see how the world took the news."
The TV presenter claimed he was offered £100,000 to appear on Celebrity Shark Bait, a one-off TV special which saw four celebrities taken to South Africa and lowered into sea filled with Great White sharks.

Actor Richard E Grant, athlete Colin Jackson, comedian Ruby Wax and former Emmerdale star Amy Nuttall all took part in the show, which saw them being lowered into the water inside a cage to keep them safe.
Writing in his Daily Mail column, Piers says that he asked what would happen if the cage were to break open, being told: "Great TV!"
Piers, who recently praised Kate Middleton's piano performance, then went on to say he was "promised an even larger cheque" to fake his own death and see how the world reacted.
The former Good Morning Britain host said the production company told him: "This needs to be very hush-hush, and obviously, certain people would need to know…"
Piers then went on to joke how the world would lack sympathy for this passing.
He wrote: "I can imagine the BBC News headline now: ‘Tributes failed to pour in last night."
