Hundreds of pages of unsealed documents were released in rolling batches earlier this month related to a lawsuit filed by a Jeffrey Epstein victim against Ghislaine Maxwell that exposed some bombshells about Epstein’s sex trafficking ring and some of his potential elite clients.
The court records are part of a defamation lawsuit filed in New York in 2015 by Virginia Giuffre against Epstein’s co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell. On January 3, the first of multiple batches of unsealed records were released. Below is a rundown of the most eye-opening highlights.
Bill Clinton allegedly liked them young.
Another victim, Johanna Sjoberg, gave sworn testimony about what she knew about Epstein’s relationship with Bill Clinton, and she said Epstein told her he liked them young.
“[Epstein] said one time that Clinton likes them young,” Sjoberg testified.
Victim testimony exonerates President Donald Trump.
Giuffre said in a sworn deposition that she doesn’t believe Trump participated in anything after an attorney questioned her if Trump was a witness to the sexual abuse of minors.
“I don’t think Donald Trump participated in anything,” Giuffre testified.
Bradley Edwards, an attorney who represented multiple Epstein victims, echoed the same sentiment in his book, “Relentless Pursuit,” published in 2021.
“None of the people I interviewed who had met Trump through Epstein ever claimed that Trump engaged in any improper sexual activity at all, nor did they say that he was around when minors were present,” Edwards wrote.
The Clinton Foundation may have financially supported Ghislaine Maxwell.
In one document, it’s alleged that Maxwell refused to comply with a discovery request seeking information about her connection to the Clinton Foundation, specifically if Maxwell received funding from the foundation. Notably, Maxwell has claimed she helped launch the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative.
Bill Clinton allegedly threatened Vanity Fair staff over Jeffrey Epstein coverage.
In an e-mail exchange between Giuffre and journalist Sharon Churcher, Giuffre expressed concerns that Vanity Fair could write about her since Bill Clinton had allegedly threatened them not to write sex trafficking articles about his “good friend” Epstein.
“When I was doing some research into [Vanity Fair] yesterday, it does concern me what they could want to write about me considering that B.Clinton walked into [Vanity Fair] and threatened them not to write sex-traffic[k]ing articles about his good friend J.E.,” Giuffre wrote in the e-mail.
Sexual allegations against other high-profile elites.
Giuffre claimed in a deposition that billionaire hedge funder, Glenn Dubin, was the first person Maxwell trafficked her to. Giuffre testified that Maxwell told her to give an “erotic massage” and Giuffre added “which means sex.”
In a separate deposition Giuffre gave, she testified she had sex with Hyatt Hotels Chairman Tom Pritzker. Later in the same deposition, Giuffre stated Maxwell sent her to have sex with the owner of a large hotel chain.
In one of the strangest revelations, the court documents reveal that Epstein sent an e-mail in 2015 stating he’d be happy to issue a reward to counter Giuffre’s claim that Stephen Hawking engaged in an underage orgy.
“You can issue a reward to any of Virginia’s friends, acquaints, family that come forward and help prove her allegations are false. The strongest is the Clinton dinner, and the new version in the Virgin Islands that Stephen Hawking participated in an underage orgy,” the e-mail from Epstein read.
Despite the release of these documents, there are still court and FBI records that remain sealed. Until there’s full disclosure, the public will not know the extent of how vast and deep Epstein’s sex trafficking network truly was.
