The documents, part of a lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, were made public by order of a judge.
A second set of court documents linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has revealed his extensive recruitment of girls at his beachfront mansion.
The documents, which are part of a lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, were made public by order of a judge. They detail how approximately 30 women were recruited for “massages and work” at Epstein’s residence, and some were paid to bring their friends.
Joseph Recarey, a Florida police detective, testified in a 2016 deposition that Maxwell was involved in recruiting, emphasizing that most of the girls were under 18 and only two had massage experience.
The documents, which were previously part of Maxwell’s trial, shed light on Epstein’s exploitation of underage girls for sexual gratification. They also implicate several people, including Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton, although their inclusion in the documents does not necessarily imply irregularities.
Amid the open records, allegations against Prince Andrew include allegations of sexual abuse in London, New York and on Epstein Island, allegedly at the direction of Maxwell. Former President Clinton is mentioned, with the suggestion that he “may have information” about the activities of Maxwell and Epstein due to his association with them.
The documents also reveal a claim by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre that Clinton intervened in Vanity Fair magazine to prevent articles about sex trafficking about Epstein. However, Clinton has denied any wrongdoing or knowledge of Epstein’s crimes.
Another revelation involves an accuser, identified as Jane Doe #3, alleging trafficking to “powerful men, including numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister, and other world leaders.”
The new trove of documents includes Maxwell’s lawyers arguing that journalist Sharon Churcher helped “invent” allegations against Prince Andrew and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
Dershowitz, who calls for the release of suppressed documents, affirms the existence of “irrefutable evidence” related to the credibility of accusers and accused. Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008, took his own life in 2019, while Maxwell is serving a 20-year prison sentence, whose lawyers appealed the sentence.
