Jeffrey Epstein UPDATE, 2000 Pages of New Documents Name Hundreds
As many as 1,000 people including celebrities are implicated in thousands of pages of court documents from a Jeffrey Epstein lawsuit which remains under seal.
The documents, some 10,000 of them, were part of a 2015 lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre Roberts, Epstein's 'sex slave', who sued him and Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who many of Epstein's victims say was his madam.
This comes on the heels of what happened just 10 days ago More Than a Dozen Epstein Accusers Recounted Their Horrific Experiences In Court and Epstein's alleged suicide overnight on July 9th where it's been said that he broke his own neck in multiple places but there are many questions remaining.
Epstein’s address book names around 1,000 individuals associated with him. Maxwell's lawyer claims the documents could implicate “hundreds” as being involved in Epstein’s sex crimes. The files include accusations from Roberts that Jeffrey Epstein and associates abused her. This included “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister, and other world leaders.”.
Many names have yet to become public record. Public names include former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell. This was due to a document that recorded questioning of Roberts. She claimed Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell had her have sex with these men.
Among the people implicated is an unnamed man who wrote to Manhattan's Federal Court saying that disclosing his name would cause him “permanent and unjustifiable harm”.
Finding out who they all are will take some time.
Maxwell’s lawyer and an attorney for women who claim Epstein, a financier, sexually abused them told U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska they have not agreed how the documents should be unsealed.
Preska was clearly irritated with their lack of progress on the documents, which are part of a defamation lawsuit that one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Giuffre, filed several years ago against Maxwell, a British socialite.
The case files are known to contain claims by Giuffre that she was sexually abused by “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister and other world leaders.”
Many documents remain private as of right now. U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska has ordered the lawyers of each party categorize the remaining documents. The Jeffrey Epstein documents are to be determined by category if they should be released. This comes after courts denied a proposal from Maxwell’s lawyer to only black out social security numbers and the names of underage victims.
Additionally, this comes a day after one person named wrote to Preska. The man asked that his name would not be public. Furthermore, the “John Doe” said that naming unnamed individuals would “damage their reputation”. Doe’s lawyers were also in attendance.
The documents contain many allegations of sexual acts involving Plaintiff and non-parties to this litigation, some famous, some not; the identities of non-parties who either allegedly engaged in sexual acts with Plaintiff or who allegedly facilitated such acts.
The files that have already been released include Roberts' unpublished memoirs about her years with Epstein and Maxwell.
She describes in the memoir how, before she escaped in 2002, she was forced to have threesomes with the pair when she was a teenager and claims she spent her youth in sexual servitude to them.
She also describes nights on Epstein's Caribbean island during which Al Gore and Bill Clinton were present as dinner guests.
There are mentions of the Simpsons creator Matt Groening, whose feet she says she massaged on a private jet, and of Prince Andrew who she claims she had sex with multiple times - a claim he vehemently denies.
Roberts lawsuit also includes the names of other women who say they are victims of Epstein and women who Roberts says worked for the disgraced pedophile as 'recruiters'.
Epstein died in his cell in Manhattan at the beginning of August.
His attorneys say his death is suspicious and that the injuries on his neck indicate he was murdered.
Following Epstein’s apparent suicide last month, the case against him was dismissed. It’s unknown if his alleged victims will take legal action against Maxwell or any of the men involved in the case. My guess is they will at the very least go after Maxwell.
In a way, Maxwell’s alleged crimes could be even worse than Epstein’s. It was her responsibility to procure the girls who would service him. Several of Maxwell’s acquaintances spoke to Vanity Fair’s Vanessa Grigoriadis in August. From their comments, a picture begins to emerge of a soulless woman willing to do almost anything to hold onto her man, the sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Maxwell would visit spas and speak to the shower room attendants and show up at trailer parks searching for young, beautiful girls. She would claim she had a phone to offer, telling them “you’ll make lots of money, meet everyone, and I’ll change your life.” In reality, she was that she was trying to con them into lives of sexual servitude. But Maxwell could not have cared less.
The source said, “When I asked what she thought of the underage girls, she looked at me and said, ‘they’re nothing, these girls. They are trash.’
