    Man, I very rarely buy into conspiracies, but this dude had to have help committing suicide. I just don't understand why they'd take him off suicide watch so quickly or allow him to be near an item that he could hang himself with. He was inevitably going to turn on some powerful people to save his own hide. I'm wondering what information he took with him.

    This is one of the rare dudes that had ties to both Republican and Democratic elites, so I'm curious what you guys think.

    My own opinion - who the fuck knows. I really detest conspiracy shit in general because it makes otherwise rational people go crazy, but I could very easily believe every power involved would be immensely happier w/him dead so absolute minimal or less-than-minimal effort was made to keep him from killing himself.

    A shitwad of rich and famous are probably breathing heavy sighs of relief (while a bunch of women who were pimped out as young teens gnash their teeth).

    Also the guy last year who was one of the very few willing to really chase this down, dying at 50 years old w/no explanation about his cause of death aside from "sudden, brief illness" - that's pretty fucking convenient too.

    Prince Andrew...I think the Queen did it. Hard to find much that he loved more then himself. Its not like someone threatened to kill his kids. I found this interesting... maybe someone threatened to destroy his frozen sperm.

    Interest in eugenics and transhumanism
    According to various sources, Epstein, beginning in the early 2000s, showed a strong interest in improving the human race through genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, including using his own sperm. He addressed the scientific community at various events and occasions and communicated his fascination with eugenics.[211] It was reported in August 2019 that Epstein had planned to "seed the human race with his DNA" by impregnating up to 20 women at a time using his New Mexico compound as a "baby ranch", where mothers would give birth to his offspring. He was an advocate of cryonics and his own idiosyncratic version of transhumanism, and had said, perhaps in jest, that he intended to have his penis and head frozen

    Eh. This is just one of those weird Occam's Razor scenarios. I feel like it's just as likely that someone had him killed as it is that he killed himself. On the one hand, he was arrested and his life is over. If he has no political allies, there is no chance he's walking, so he hangs himself. On the other hand, he had dirt on a LOT of people. You would think he could easily give up the info for a significantly reduced sentence. It's not like he cared about his rep. He's been known at the pedo guy for years. He was already arrested and walked before. Why wouldn't a guy like that think he could get off? What's different this time around?

    I don’t think he would have got off in a million years. For whatever reason he’s much more famous now than he has been in the past. The world has changed too. There’s much more public and press pressure to get people like R Kelly.

    10000000000000000% sure Trump was involved in his death though after that tweet rampage. He's far too linked to Epstein.

    I think suicide, just how much of it was his idea is the question heh.
    Afraid that the powers that be and political connections are not putting their name anywhere near him this time around with the evidence out now so he's afraid he's not gonna land in some resort prison and going to gen pop where they dont take kindly to kiddy porn lovers and gonna show their lack of kindness with the splintered end of a broom stick.

    The amusing conspiracy side is and could be that his "friends" let him know with some kindness "look, you're not giving any of us up, and we're gonna make sure of that, so you might as well just make this easier on everyone and take care of yourself"

    Dont know how suicide watch looks outside mainstream TV but naturally it's been made to look like it's pretty useless and I imagine there's not much effective way outside full restraints to prevent someone who really wants to kill themselves from doing it. Money, connections, brushing off previous allegations, he probably didnt exactly come off as the kind needing to be strapped to a bed so not on some like doctor in cell 24/7 watch.

    In the mind of a mentally healthy person, I think its so hard to understand someone driven to suicide. Better ask our resident shrink. I do find this incredibly convenient for some people though. Its interesting how many people caught up in this are scientists and famous professors.

    Bill Clinton flew on his "airplane" 26 times, and there is testimony from a soon to be discredited witness that he was on the private island also.

    There's an upside to Epstein's death, with him out of the way this could actually help bring Epstein's co-conspirators to prison. He was the only person who had legal standing to sue the investigators that were trying to search through the evidence in his estates, that means videotapes of minors and documents that may have mention the names of powerful people who were at his properties on specific dates. If he was still alive and ended up in court his attorneys could have filed motions to throw out that evidence.

    The Biggest Bombshells in Newly Unsealed Epstein Documents
    Over 2,000 pages were released Friday about the notorious sex offender and his girlfriend, who is accused of procuring young girls for his abuse.
    08.09.19

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-biggest-bombshells-in-newly-unsealed-jeffrey-epstein-documents

    One of the biggest blows in the decade-plus case of Jeffrey Epstein came on Friday when a federal court unsealed documents from a lawsuit by one of Epstein’s accusers against his mysterious girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. Virginia Giuffre accused Maxwell of procuring young girls for sexual abuse by Epstein and his powerful friends. (The two sides settled in 2017.) The more than 2,000 pages of documents provide the greatest details yet on allegations against Epstein, including eye-popping claims involving some of the world’s most famous men, allegations of sex slaves, and more.

    Here are some of the major revelations:

    Directed to Have Sex With World’s Most Powerful Men

    Giuffre said in several depositions that Maxwell and Epstein trafficked her to powerful men for sex. In 2016, she said Maxwell specifically instructed her to serve former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Britain’s Prince Andrew, wealthy financier Glenn Dubin, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, modeling scout Jean-Luc Brunel, and scientist Marvin Minsky. She also says Maxwell and Epstein directed her to have sex with “another prince,” a "foreign president," a well-known prime minister" and the owner of a “large hotel chain.” None of the men named have been charged with a crime and all have denied inappropriate behavior.

    Epstein ‘Needed’ Three Orgasms a Day

    A woman once employed to be Epstein’s personal masseuse testified that he said he needed “at least three orgasms” every day day. “It was biological, like eating,” said Johanna Sjoberg. “I thought it was a little crazy.”

    Sjoberg said Maxwell approached her in 2001 a Florida college to be Epsein’s personal assistant. After one day of clerical work, Sjoberg said another woman described as Maxwell’s “sex slave” took her into the his bathroom to give him a massage. Sjoberg said Epstein and the other girl then performed a massage on her while she was naked. While Maxwell admitted in her 2016 deposition that she did employ massage therapists on Epstein’s behest, she had denied the visits were sexual in nature.

    Epstein Used “Over 100” Girls and Sex Toys

    Juan Alessi, Epstein’s former house manager, testified he saw “probably over 100” girls serve Epstein at his Palm Beach home over 10 years. After each encounter, Alessi said, he would clean up the home’s upstairs massage room. In multiple occasions, he said, he found “vibrators or sex toys” and put them in Maxwell’s closet because he “knew that’s where they kept” such items, along with a “shiny black costume.” Tony Figueroa, Giuffre’s ex-boyfriend, also testified Giuffre said she participated in threesomes with Maxwell and Epstein, usually involving “strap-ons.” He says that Maxwell also asked him to find girls for Epstein. Maxwell has denied anything sexual took place during Epstein’s massages.

    Accuser Shopped Short Story “The Billionaire's Playboy Club”

    Giuffre wrote and shopped around a fictionalized story about her alleged experiences with Epstein, naming him and Maxwell in the manuscript. The story describes a world where only a “selective clientele” had access to girls “trained to fulfill every sexual desire asked of them, no matter how bizarre the requests might be.” In one passage, she writes, “Jeffrey made his appearance. It was strange seeing him in clothes for the first time. He wasn’t wearing what you’d expect your typical billionaire’s attire to be. He was wearing a pair of sweatpants and a Harvard sweatshirt, which he began to remove immediately.”

    Dershowitz’s Name Suggested by Journalist

    In 2011, Giuffre was working on her book proposal regarding Epstein when she received an email from journalist Sharon Churcher of the Mail on Sunday, a right-wing UK newspaper: “Don’t forget Alan Dershowitz, JE’s buddy and lawyer,” Churcher wrote. “Good name for your pitch as he repped Claus von Bulow and a movie was made about that case…. We all suspect Alan is a pedo and tho no proof on that, you probably met him when he was hanging out with JE.”

    Dershowitz has long denied Giuffre’s allegations that he had sex with her. In the unsealed court documents, Giuffre once again claims that she had intercourse with Dershowitz at several of Epstein’s mansions, and says that she once gave him oral sex in the back of a limousine on the way to his house in Massachusetts while Epstein and another young woman watched.

    Swedish Girl Said She Was Held Hostage on Epstein’s Island

    Rinaldo Rizzo, a former house manager for Epstein friends Glenn Dubin and Eva Andersson-Dubin, testified that a “distraught” 15-year-old girl told him in 2005 she was pressured to have sex on Epstein’s private island. The butler said the girl, who identified herself as Epstein’s personal assistant, refused and that Epstein’s assistant Sarah Kellen took her passport and phone away and gave them to Maxwell. “She says, ‘I’m not supposed to talk about this,’” he recalled. Maxwell has denied these allegations.

    Accuser’s Dad Honored as Mar-a-Lago MVP in Signed Trump Letter

    Giuffre’s father, Sky Roberts, was named as Mar-a-Lago’s “most valuable employee” in a letter signed by Donald Trump in April 2000. Roberts worked on the Trump club’s maintenance crew and was relocating to Colorado for a new job. “Should he ever return to Florida, he would be eligible for rehire,” Trump wrote in the letter. Trump and Epstein were friendly for years until the now-president supposedly kicked Epstein out of Mar-a-Lago for acting inappropriately with girls.

    In a deposition, Giuffre says that Epstein told her that he was friends with Trump, but that she never witnessed the president and Epstein together. “Donald Trump never flirted with me,” she testified, and added that she didn’t see him have sex with girls at Epstein’s homes.

    Maxwell Allegedly Had Her Own Sex Slaves

    When Maxwell wasn’t allegedly ordering girls to service Epstein and his friends, she abused them herself, according to at least three people. Giuffre said she, Maxwell, and Epstein were “were all intimate together on multiple occasions,” her ex-boyfriend Tony Figueroa testified. Johanna Sjoberg testified that Maxwell called a girl who was giving massages to Epstein “her slave.” A former house manager testified that Maxwell received massages from girls, as well. Maxwell denies these claims.

    Prince Andrew Allegedly Used a Puppet to Act Out Groping

    Epstein and Maxwell allegedly trafficked Giuffre to Britain’s Prince Andrew. One day at Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan, Sjoberg testified she sat on his lap with Giuffre sitting next to him. The prince touched Sjoberg’s breast, she testified, and used a puppet to touch Giuffre’s breast, showing what he would do to her. Prince Andrew has vehemently denied inappropriate behavior with underage women around Epstein.

    Lead Detective Had No Evidence Against Maxwell

    Epstein’s accusers weren’t the only ones to lob bombs. Attorneys for Maxwell deposed retired Palm Beach police detective Joseph Recarey, who they say “failed to uncover any evidence” against Maxwell. When Recarey was asked to describe “everything that you believe you know about Ghislaine Maxwell’s sexual trafficking conduct,” he replied, “I don’t.” But Giuffre’s lawyers fired back that Recarey knew that Maxwell was involved in illegal sexual activities, that he wanted to speak to her but she didn’t return his calls, and that he concluded her role was to procure girls for Epstein.

    Epstein Used “Human ATM Machine” to Pay Girls

    Former house manager of the Palm Beach estate, Alfredo Rodriguez, called himself a “human ATM machine” tasked with paying out Epstein’s alleged victims. Girls would come by cab and he was “told to pay them cash” after they finished servicing Epstein and others. Epstein’s assistant Sarah Kellen would tell Rodriguez to call cabs to send the girls back, he testified.

    Epstein Ordered Books About How To Use Sex Slaves on Amazon

    Palm Beach police recovered receipts from Epstein’s trash that showed he ordered books on Amazon about sadomasochism and how to use sex slaves. A photograph of an Amazon receipt under Epstein’s name showed several titles, including SM 101: A Realistic Introduction, A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners, and SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude.

    Epstein Computers Removed From Home Before Police Raid

    Around the time Epstein was under investigation in Florida in 2005, Maxwell’s assistant Adriana Ross and a man removed three computers from the Palm Beach residence, a former house manager testified. When police later turned up at the home, the computers—which allegedly contained nude pictures of underage girls—were gone.

    Feds Had Evidence of Child Pornography in Epstein’s Florida Mansion

    Giuffre’s lawyers claimed that Maxwell kept photos of underage girls on her computers, and two of Epstein’s housekeepers also testified that they saw photos of young nude females on Maxwell’s devices. Detective Recarey also “found a collage of nude photos of young females in Epstein’s closet [in his Palm Beach mansion], and turned the photos over to the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ office.” The lawyers also note that a police video disclosed through a FOIA request shows naked images of women throughout the Florida house, including a full nude of Giuffre.

    The U.S. Attorney’s office declined to press serious charges against Epstein in 2007 and instead he pleaded guilty to two minor state prostitution charges.

    Jeffrey Epstein, accused sex trafficker, dies by suicide: Officials
    Aug 10, 2019

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/jeffrey-e...cker-dies-suicide-officials/story?id=64881684

    Epstein hanged himself, the sources said.

    He was found unresponsive in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center around 6:30 a.m., the Bureau of Prisons said. He transported in cardiac arrest to New York Downtown Hospital at 6:39 a.m., according to sources.

    Epstein, 66, was set to stand trial next year for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of girls in New York and Florida.

    His death came less than three weeks after he was found unresponsive in his cell at the federal prison in Lower Manhattan, with marks on his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted, sources told ABC News. He was placed on suicide watch following the July 23 incident, but was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.

    The FBI is investigating the incident, according to the Bureau of Prisons.

    Epstein was arrested in July for alleged sex trafficking of girls at his Upper East Side mansion and his home in Palm Beach, Florida. Some of the charges date back to the early 2000s.

    Epstein pleaded not guilty to the charges. He faced up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

    Following news of his death, his alleged victims condemned his suicide and what they described as a lack of justice for them and other accusers.

    "I am extremely mad and hurt thinking he once again thought he was above us and took the easy way out ... I still can't wrap my head around the fact that's really true," Jena-Lisa Jones, 30, an alleged victim of Epstein when she was 14 in Florida, said in a statement. "God will have his judgement now."

    Jennifer Araoz, 32, who claimed that Epstein raped her when she was 14, called on authorities to "pursue and prosecute his accomplices and enablers.

    "I am angry Jeffrey Epstein won’t have to face his survivors of his abuse in court. We have to live with the scars of his actions for the rest of our lives, while he will never face the consequences of the crimes he committed the pain and trauma he caused so many people," Araoz said.

    Michelle Licata, an alleged Florida victim of Epstein when she was 16, said she didn't want anyone to die.

    "I just wanted him to be held accountable for his actions. Simple as that," she said.

    Law enforcement sources told ABC News the criminal case against Epstein will not end with his death. The FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan will continue to evaluate the evidence and hear from his accusers, the sources said.

    A source familiar with the case told ABC News that Attorney General William Barr is "livid." Barr said in a statement he was "appalled" at the news and the Inspector General is opening an investigation into Epstein's death, in addition to the FBI's investigation.

    "Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered," he said.

    Politicians, too, demanded answers in the wake of Epstein's suicide.

    Lois Frankel, a Democratic congressman who represents Palm Beach, said his death "does not end the need for justice for his victims or the right of the public to know why a prolific child molester got a slap on the wrist instead of a long prison sentence."

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., wrote on Twitter, "We need answers. Lots of them."

    His alleged crimes were thrown back into the spotlight amid renewed scrutiny of the plea deal Epstein reached with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in 2007, led by then-U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta. A non-prosecution agreement allowed Epstein, a hedge-fund manager, to plead guilty to two state charges and avoid federal charges for an allegedly broad pattern of similar sexual misconduct. He would serve just 13 months of an 18-month sentence in county jail in Florida.

    The alleged victims in that case told ABC News they were not made aware of the details of the plea agreement while it was being negotiated.

    The deal is currently under review by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. Acosta was serving as President Trump's Labor Secretary amid the controversy over his role in the deal. He later resigned from that position.

    On Friday, a federal appellate court in New York unsealed around 2,000 pages of documents from a now-settled civil defamation case between Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an alleged Epstein victim, and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime Epstein associate.

    Giuffre accused Maxwell of recruiting her while she was working as a locker-room attendant at Mar-A-Lago in 2000 and bringing her to Epstein's home for a massage. She claims that she eventually became a teen sex slave to Epstein, and a victim of sex trafficking, beginning at age 17, at the hands of both Epstein and Maxwell.

    The newly-unsealed documents showed that Giuffre alleged that Epstein and Maxwell directed her to have sex with, among others: Prince Andrew; criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz; former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson; former Senator George Mitchell; a well-known prime minster, who she wouldn't name; and a foreign man who was introduced to her as a "prince."

    Maxwell has consistently denied Giuffre's claims.

    "Ghislaine Maxwell did not participate in, facilitate, manage or otherwise conspire to commit sex trafficking" as alleged by Giuffre, her attorney wrote in a 2016 court filing.

    Maxwell's attorneys also contend in the newly unsealed court filings that Giuffre had “utterly failed” to substantiate her allegations that Maxwell facilitated her abuse. Giuffre’s claims about having been trafficked to other prominent men, Maxwell’s lawyers wrote, are “patently incredible.”

    Mitchell called the allegations "false."

    "I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre," he said in a statement issued Friday. "In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls. I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact."

    Richardson also denied Giuffre's claims.

    "These allegations and inferences are completely false. Governor Richardson has never even been contacted by any party regarding this lawsuit," Maddy Mahony, a spokeswoman for Richardson, said in a statement. "To be clear, in Governor Richardson’s limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never saw him in the presence of young or underage girls. Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein’s residence in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre."

    Giuffre's allegations were never tested in court because the case was settled prior to trial.

    During a detention hearing in July, Epstein came face-to-face with two other accusers. Annie Farmer said she was 16 when Epstein had her sent to New Mexico where he was allegedly “inappropriate” with her. Courtney Wild told the judge she was 14 when Epstein allegedly sexually abused her in Palm Beach, Florida. Both women spoke in support of keeping Epstein locked up without bail.

    Epstein appeared to watch them address the judge, but his face showed no emotion.

    A federal judge later denied bail for Epstein, after deciding he was too great a flight risk to release from custody.

    Epstein's body will be taken to the city morgue and an autopsy will be conducted as soon as Sunday, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

    Huge cache of records details how Jeffrey Epstein and madam lured girls into depraved world
    AUGUST 09, 2019

    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article233704797.html

    A chilling picture emerged Friday of how hundreds of girls and young women were allegedly trafficked for sex to a number of wealthy business, political and world leaders by Jeffrey Epstein and his madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, as nearly 2,000 court documents were unsealed in a federal civil case in New York.

    The documents, the largest cache to be released in the 13 years since Epstein’s case began, offer brutal details about Epstein’s trafficking of teenage girls in Palm Beach, New York and overseas — as well as Maxwell’s obsessive and often abusive quest to provide him with new girls over a span of years in the early to mid 2000s.

    [​IMG]

    Virginia Roberts, now Giuffre, says she was 16 and working as a locker room attendant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort when she was approached by Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s associate, about becoming a masseuse for Epstein.

    The documents raise new questions about whether powerful people pressured federal prosecutors in Florida to give Epstein a secret non-prosecution agreement in 2008 that not only granted him immunity, but allowed an untold number of other people who have never been identified to escape sex trafficking charges.

    One of the men accused of having sex with one of Epstein’s victims is former Maine Senator George Mitchell, the once formidable Senate Democratic minority leader who in 2008 — the same year the Epstein deal was finalized — was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people.

    Mitchell flatly has denied the allegations, which were buried amid the thousands of documents that were part of a 2015 federal defamation lawsuit brought against Maxwell by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

    Giuffre, who turned 36 on Friday, names a number of other men in politics, academia and business that she says she was directed to have sex with. In a 2017 interview with the Miami Herald, Giuffre said that Epstein wanted her to please various influential people then so that he could learn about their sexual peccadilloes and use them as leverage if he needed to.

    While there’s no direct evidence contained in the court record substantiating her accounts with prominent men, Giuffre did provide testimony and evidence to corroborate her claims of exploitation at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell through photographs, plane logs and even a medical record from Presbyterian Hospital in New York where Giuffre was taken by Epstein after a particularly abusive sex episode.

    Her story was also supported by a sworn deposition from an ex-boyfriend, whom she told about the abuse at the time, and another woman who worked as an assistant for Maxwell and Epstein named Johanna Sjoberg. Sjoberg, who was a college student at Palm Beach Atlantic University when she was recruited by Maxwell, said that Maxwell’s primary role in Epstein’s life was to provide him with young girls at least three times a day.

    “He explained to me that, in his opinion, he needed to have three orgasms a day. It was biological, like eating,’’ Sjoberg said in a sworn deposition in 2015.

    The names of some prominent men Giuffre says she was directed to have sex with are spattered throughout the approximately 2,000 pages released Friday.

    Besides Mitchell, they include: the late scientist Marvin Minsky, modeling scout Jean-Luc Brunel, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, 71, Hyatt hotels magnate Tom Pritzker, 69, and prominent hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin, 62. Giuffre has previously identified Epstein’s lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, 80, and Prince Andrew, 59, as two of the people with whom she had sex.

    All the men have issued denials, with some, including Dershowitz, insisting they never met Giuffre. No charges have been filed against anyone other than Epstein, who was indicted last month in New York on two counts of sex trafficking.

    Some of the testimony released Friday is difficult to read, as when one 15-year-old Swedish girl, shaking and crying in fear, told a butler who worked for two of Epstein’s closest friends that she had been taken to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean and ordered to have sex with him and others. The butler, in a sworn statement, said the girl, visibly traumatized, told him that Epstein and Maxwell had physically threatened to harm her and seized her passport to keep her on the island, according to the butler’s statement.

    The houseman, Rinaldo Rizzo, worked for Dubin and his wife, Eva, a former Miss Sweden who is a physician and founder of the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai. Rizzo said that the girl was so distraught she couldn’t recall how she got back to the U.S. mainland but that it was Maxwell who returned her to the Dubin residence in New York.

    The cache of court documents, part of the defamation case’s motion for summary judgment, also shows that in 2006, when the Palm Beach police were first investigating Epstein, he was being assisted by Maxwell as part of a pyramid-like scheme the pair operated to lure young girls from around Palm Beach County, focusing on schools, colleges and spas.

    City of Palm Beach Detective Joe Recarey, who has since died, testified in the case that he was never able to question Maxwell, but the fact that the police had evidence of Maxwell’s involvement raises new questions about why the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office in South Florida failed to pursue sex trafficking charges against Epstein, Maxwell and others.

    Giuffre, as part of her sworn testimony, also states that she met former President Bill Clinton, former Vice President Al Gore and future President Donald Trump, and that Epstein once held a dinner for Clinton on his island, Little St. James, off the coast of St. Thomas.

    She said in a 2016 deposition she met Trump through her father, Sky, who worked as a maintenance man at Trump’s Palm Beach home, Mar-a-Lago, and that to her knowledge, neither Trump nor Clinton had any intimate contact with “us’’ — referring to a group of girls Epstein kept at his beck and call for sex.

    Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boies, said there is nothing in the Maxwell case that showed any wrongdoing by Clinton, Gore or Trump.

    “We know both Trump and Clinton were associated with Epstein at various times in various ways, but in terms of what we have, there’s no indication that any of the three of them did anything improper.’’

    Jeffrey Epstein’s home on the island of Little St. James in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Former workers on the island said that Epstein’s bedroom was in the building on the right, the larger main house can be seen to the left, and then four smaller cabana rooms can be seen in the courtyard behind the main house.

    The lawsuit was settled in 2017 in Giuffre’s favor, Boies said. But besides the monetary settlement, Boies said Giuffre’s goal was to chronicle, in testimony and evidence, the scope of Epstein’s and Maxwell’s sex trafficking operation.

    “What the lawsuit was about is this massive sex trafficking operation which went on for years, right in front of everybody — and the way in which every institution in our society failed these girls. The courts failed them, the prosecutors failed them, the lawyers failed them, the media failed them — everyone in our system failed them,’’ he said.

    He added that even after Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 as part of a plea deal that amounted to minor prostitution charges, Epstein served a cushy jail term — he was allowed to leave the jail for 12 hours a day — and went back to his jet-setting social life. At the same time, Giuffre and Epstein’s other victims continued to suffer trauma as details of his crimes spilled out over the years — and the criminal justice system continued to ignore the case.

    Boies, whose firm is now engaged in a similar defamation lawsuit brought by Giuffre against Dershowitz, said that there were a lot of people who, if they weren’t involved knew what Epstein and Maxwell were doing.

    “I think one of the general points worth making is how many people knew about this and did nothing, and how long it went on right in plain sight, hiding in plain sight,’’ Boies said.

    Maxwell, in portions of her deposition unsealed Friday, refused to answer questions about whether she saw Epstein with any underage girls. She denied she ever had sex with Giuffre, calling her a liar and, at one point, pounding her fists on a table during questioning.

    “Again, Virginia is absolutely totally lying. This is a subject of defamation about Virginia and the lies she has told and one of the lies she told was that President Clinton was on the island where I was present. Absolutely 1,000 percent that is a flat-out total fabrication and lie.’’

    Clinton has admitted that he made four plane trips with Epstein as part of the charitable work of the Clinton Foundation.

    “President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,’’ a statement from his spokesman, released last month, said.

    President Trump has recently claimed that he was not really close with Epstein and had not spoken to him in years. Giuffre, however, said in a deposition released Friday that Trump and Epstein were good friends. She admitted that Epstein was the one who characterized his friendship with Trump and that she herself had never seen the two of them together.

    The Herald was unsuccessful in reaching Brunel.

    Devin Broda, a spokesman for the Dubins, issued the following statement:

    “Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations in the unsealed court records, which are demonstrably false and defamatory. The Dubins have flight records and other evidence that definitively disprove that any such events occurred.”

    A spokesman for Richardson issued a statement saying that he has never met Giuffre.

    “These allegations and inferences are completely false. ...To be clear, in Governor Richardson’s limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never saw him in the presence of young or underage girls.”

    “I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre,” Mitchell told the Portland (Maine) Press Herald. “In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls. I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact.”

    Giuffre named at least two other women who were considered “sex slaves,’’ but said there were dozens of others who were directed to perform sex acts for politicians, businessmen and world leaders during the two and half years she spent with Epstein starting in 2000 when she was 17.

    The civil case had previously been sealed by a federal court judge. The Miami Herald, which published a detailed investigation of the Epstein case last November, Perversion of Justice,petitioned the court in January to unseal the entire case. Two other parties, blogger Mike Cernovich and Epstein lawyer Dershowitz, had previously asked that certain portions of the case be unsealed.

    Giuffre has said that Epstein forced her to have sex with both Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, an allegation they both have denied. Another woman, Sarah Ransome, said that Epstein and Maxwell directed her to have sex with Dershowitz, which the famed attorney has also denied.

    The court documents revealed new details about her alleged sex acts with Dershowitz, including times that she says she had sex with him on Epstein’s jet and in a limo with another girl while Epstein was present. In her deposition, she also said she briefly visited Dershowitz’s Massachusetts home, waiting for him with another woman in the foyer.

    Dershowitz has previously told the Herald that Giuffre is a liar and that he intends to prove it in court.

    A three-judge panel agreed to release the documents in April. One of the three cautioned that just because an allegation is in the documents doesn’t make it true.

    On Thursday, another U.S. district judge, Loretta Preska, will hold a hearing to determine how to unseal the remaining documents in the case.
