Unsealed court documents reveal Ghislaine Maxwell's connection with Epstein

New documents released on Ghislaine Maxwell's dealings with Jeffrey Epstein Documents unsealed in sexual abuse case against Jeffrey Epstein's ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell

In her deposition, Giuffre also claimed former President Bill Clinton had close connections with Maxwell and spent time with Epstein on his private island.

Among the trove of court papers was an email exchange between the pair in January 2015, in which Epstein advised her to carry on normally and insisted she had nothing to worry about.

The release of Maxwell's deposition had been scheduled for Monday, pending the outcome of the appeal.

Maxwell has pleaded to not guilty to multiple charges of sex trafficking involving minors and is set to appear in court next July.

The deposition was taken in a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against the British socialite by Virginia Giuffre, who had accused Mr Epstein of having kept her as a "sex slave" with Ms Maxwell's assistance.

Maxwell's attorneys tried to stop the documents from surfacing and asked a USA district court judge to intervene with a phone call.

Other documents that have now been made public include the testimony of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a key whistle-blower in the case, who also alleges that Prince Andrew slept with her while she was a teenager (something that he has repeatedly denied, notably during his Newsnight interview in which he claims he can not remember ever meeting her).

They said Ms Maxwell had been promised confidentiality before being forced to answer many "personal, sensitive, and allegedly incriminatory questions", only to be sandbagged when prosecutors quoted from the deposition in her indictment. She pleaded not guilty.

Epstein killed himself last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Prosecutors accuse the 58-year-old of recruiting and grooming girls as young as 14 to be abused by Epstein.

Lawyers for Maxwell said making her deposition public could make it "difficult if not impossible" to find an impartial jury for her criminal trial.

Dozens of documents detailing Ghislaine Maxwell's relations with the late financier Jeffrey Epstein were released on Thursday, despite her legal team's objections. A day later, Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan federal jail cell of an apparent suicide while awaiting trial. After that, Giuffre testified, Maxwell and Epstein began farming her out to powerful men.

According to one of the emails unsealed Thursday, Epstein appears to have drafted a press statement for Maxwell: "Since JE was charged in 2007 for solicitation of a prostitute I have been the target of outright lies, innuendo, slander, defamation and salacious gossip and harassment; headlines, made up quotes I have never given, statements I have never made, trips with people to places I have never been, holidays with people I have never met", Epstein wrote on Jan 21, 2015. He was arrested on new sex-trafficking charges in July 2019 in a case filed by federal prosecutors in NY.

"There were blondes, there were brunettes, there were redheads", Giuffre told a United States district court in NY.
