A young woman who says financier Jeffrey Epstein and socialite Ghislaine Maxwell impeded her as a copulation slave too accused a multitude of high-powered beings of being involved in Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking ring, according to court records unsealed Friday.
Virginia Giuffre, who says that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked her to powerful parties for lascivious massages and fornication, claimed in depositions in 2016 that Maxwell led her to have sex with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Britain’s Prince Andrew( whom she has accused before ), wealthy speculator Glenn Dubin, former senator George Mitchell , now-deceased MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, as well as” another prince ,” a “foreign president, ” a well-known prime minsiter” and the owner of a” gigantic hotel series” in France.
None of the three men called in the deposition have been charged with a crime or even indicted in civil law in connection with the Epstein case. The deposition represents accuser Giuffre’s allegations, and the court reports unsealed on Friday did not contain any certification or more detailed information, though many documents remain sealed.
Brunel’s advocate Joe Titone declined to comment. Prince Andrew and Buckingham Palace have previously and vehemently denied Giuffre’s allegations.” Glenn and Eva Dubin are scandalized by the allegations in the unsealed court records, which are demonstrably false and injuriou. The Dubins have flight records and other evidence that definitively disprove that any such incidents resulted, ” a spokesperson for the Dubin family told The Daily Beast on Friday.
A spokesperson for former Gov. Bill Richardson, Madeleine Mahony, told The Daily Beast on Friday ,” These allegations and inferences are completely false. Governor Richardson has never even been contacted by any party regarding this lawsuit. To is clearly, in Governor Richardson’s limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never witnessed him in the presence of young or underage girls. Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein’s mansion in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never satisfied Ms. Giuffre.”
Mitchell said in a statement to The Daily Beast:” The accusation was reflected in the exhausted substantiates is false … I have never met, spoke with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre .”
He added:” In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never celebrated or believed any inappropriate manage with underage girlfriends. I simply learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his trial in Florida. We have had no further contact .”
The revelation comes after a federal appeals court ordered the release of the sealed documents in a litigation that Giuffre filed against Maxwell, the British publishing heiress whom Giuffre says was Epstein’s madam. Maxwell has repudiated charges that she has acted as a procurer for Epstein and denied she promoted Prince Andrew &# x27; s acts of sexual abuse and was Epstein’s madam.
Giuffre has long claimed that Epstein impeded her as his underage” sex slave” and lent her out to his far-famed friends, including Prince Andrew and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.( Dershowitz has repeatedly affirmed her accusations .) She says Maxwell recruited her into Epstein’s sordid world after recognise her at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and offering her a chance to learn massage. At the time, Giuffre was only 16 years old.
On July 3, the U.S. Court of Entreaty for the Second Circuit said the summing-up judging fabrics in Giuffre’s 2015 litigation to be unsealed–with the first records liberated to the public today.
In several depositions–excerpts of which were included in the documents unsealed Friday–Giuffre said that Maxwell would route her to have lascivious “massages” and sexual meetings with various strong men–from a inn owner in France( an accident she targets” around the same time that Naomi Campbell had a birthday party “) to politician Richardson to Dubin, a financierwho is married to Epstein’s former lover Eva Andersson-Dubin.
In the court papers, Giuffre claims she was sent by Maxwell to have sex with the owner of a large hotel chain,” one time in France … I believe it was around the same time that Naomi Campbell had a birthday party .” She says they had sex” in his own cabana, townhouse thing. It was part of a hotel. Jeffrey was staying there. Ghislaine was staying there .”
” I was instructed by Ghislaine to go and give him an prurient massage ,” she witnessed.” She applied the words erotic rub ?” Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger queries.” No, that’s my name ,” Giuffre replies.” The word ‘massage’ is what they would use. That’s their system text .”
” Where saw you and where was Ms. Maxwell when she placed you to go have sex with Marvin Minsky ?” Menninger asks.
” I believe it was the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jeff’s–sorry, Jeffrey–Epstein’s island in the U.S. Virgin Islands ,” Giuffre says, declaring she can’t remember the year or how age-old she was at the time.
Later, Menninger invites,” Other than Glenn Dubin…Prince Andrew, Jean-Luc Brunel, Bill Richardson, another ruler, the large hotel chain owner, and Marvin Minsky, is there anyone else that Ghislaine Maxwell aimed you to go have sex with ?”
” I am emphatically sure there is ,” Giuffre replies.” But can I retain everybody’s call? No…look I’ve given you what I know right now. I’m sorry. This is very hard for me and very frustrating to have to go over this. I don’t–I don’t recall all of the people. There was a large amount of parties that I was sent to .”
In a separate exchange, Giuffre vouches,” “They apprise me to go to George Mitchell, Jean Luc Brunel, Bill Richardson, another lord that I don &# x27; t know his call. A chap that owns a hotel, a really large hotel chain, I can &# x27; t recollect which inn it was. Marvin Minksy.”
” There was, you are aware, another foreign director, I can’t remember his specify. He was Spanish. There &# x27; s a entire knot of them that I just–it’s hard for me to remember all of them. you know, I was told to do something by these parties persistently, told to–my entire life revolved around time pleasing these men and preserving Ghislaine and Jeffrey happy. Their whole entire lives revolved around fornication .”
And in a deposition of Giuffre from 2016 — in a case brought by Brad Edwards and Paul Cassell, advocates for Epstien &# x27; s alleged martyrs, against Alan Dershowitz–Giuffre says she was sexually trafficked to a well-known prime minister, to Prince Andrew, to George Mitchell, and to a human who was introduced as a foreign “prince” on a trip to the south of France.
The humanities appointed by Virginia Giuffre are all friends or acquaintances of Epstein who moved within his world of supremacy and influence.
Dubin and Andersson-Dubin were two of Epstein’s closest friends. Eva, a former Miss Sweden who married Glenn in 1994, was a critical factor in Epstein’s reintroduction to New York high society after the financier’s Florida conviction. The Dubins are fantastically wealthy–Forbes leans their luck around$ 2 billion–and Glenn Dubin is a founder of Highbridge Capital, as well as the altruistic Robin hood Foundation( JFK Jr. had a seat on its board ). They live in a Fifth Avenue apartment once owned by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassisand are regulars on the Palm Beach circuit that Epstein once dominated.
The accusation against Glenn Dubin is even more disturbing considering that Eva vowed to a probation policeman that she was ” 100% pleasant” with Epstein around her child or children, while noting she was aware of his conviction of sex with a minor. Epstein yielded coin to Eva’s breast cancer charity, and to two organizations linked to one of the Dubin daughters–Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Club( the Dubins are also sponsors) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai. Epstein was also an investor in Highbridge in 1998, according to New York Magazine .
The Dubins sought to quickly distance themselves from Epstein after his arrest in New York in early July. Through a spokesperson, the couple said that they were” sickened by the brand-new allegations against Jeffrey Epstein” and” had they been aware of the abominable and heinous behaviour described in these new accusations, they would have cut off all ties and certainly never have allowed their children to be in his proximity .”( The brand-new accusations against Epstein are almost identical to the Florida allegations, which manufactured major national word in 2006 -2 009.)
Epstein likewise had longstanding ties with Richardson. The former governor, DNC chairman, and presidential candidate–who too provided as President Clinton’s Energy Secretary and UN Ambassador in the late’ 90 s–was reportedly a guest of honor at Jeffrey Epstein’s secluded Zorro Ranch outside of Stanley, New Mexico, and appears in Epstein’s ” little black book” of contacts. Giuffre has previously claimed that Epstein brought her to New Mexico as his underage” fornication slave .”
Richardson returned $50,000 in expedition donations from Epstein after the financier’s 2007 request deal in Florida.
The former head has been hit by scandal before. In 2011, he was under investigation by a federal splendid jury for possible campaign finance violations for reportedly sacrificing the status of women $ 250,000 in hush money after she menaced him with a sexual harassment suit.( The investigation was closed without any charges .) And in 2009, Richardson withdrewfrom a Cabinet appointment as President Obama’s Commerce Secretary over allegations of a pay-to-play donor scandal, though he was never accused.
Another politician accused by Giuffre is George Mitchell, the former Democratic master of the Senate and Bill Clinton’s Special Envoy for Northern Ireland( and later President Obama’s emissary to the Middle East ). Mitchell constructed a renowned legacy as a politician. In a 2003 sketch of Epstein for Vanity Fair , the former Senator and Army counterintelligence officer admired Epstein:” He has supported some humanitarian assignments of mine and coordinated a fund-raiser for me once. I will definitely announce him a friend and a booster .” The feeling was mutual, with Epstein regarding Mitchell as “the world’s greatest negotiator.”
Dershowitz also claimed in a deposition that Mitchell was Epstein’s Palm Beach house guest.
In addition to his political connections, Epstein’s ties to scientists have also been under intense scrutiny since his arrest on sex-trafficking and conspiracy costs at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. The late MIT cognitive scientist and” papa of AI” Marvin Minsky was part of a glittering situate of academics that Epstein collected as friends. In 2012, as Epstein was trying to rehabilitate his image, he bragged his foundation’s sponsorship of an academic conference organized by Minsky.
Dershowitz singled out Minsky as someone who had allegedly seen young females around Epstein. As he told The Daily Beast,” These beings[ the young women] were determined is not simply by me. They were ensure by Larry Summers, they were seen by[ genetics professor George] Church, they were seen by Marvin Minsky, they were seen by some of the most eminent professors and scholars in the world. There was no hint or suggestion of anything sexual or unwarranted in the fact that there are these parties .”( Minsky been killed in 2016.)
Meanwhile, Jean-Luc Brunel, whose MC2 agency reps Naomi Campbell and other simulations, was formerly been accused of supplying underage daughters to Epstein,which he has denied.
The French modeling scout has also long faced accusations that girlfriends were drugged and abused in his exert. He was particularly close to Epstein, according to court records in civil dress against the speculator. The subject of a prominent 60 Minutes disclosure on sexual abuse in the modeling industry, Brunel has been linked to the apartments on Manhattan’s East 66 th Streetwhere Epstein allegedly room simulates; he flew on Epstein’s plane often; and he liked to reach himself at home at the financier’s Palm Beach mansion, according to testimony from Epstein’s onetime employees.
Epstein allegedly invested$ 1 million in Brunel’s busines MC2, which scapegoats’ solicitors say was used to import young girls from around the world for Epstein and his pals.( Brunel has denied that Epstein invested in his companionship .)
The most high-profile gentleman to be accused by Giuffre is, of course, Britain &# x27; s Prince Andrew.
Andrew–who flew on Epstein’s airplane and vacationed with him in Thailand–met the financer through Maxwell. The royal has been fighting allegations for years that he caroused with Giuffre when she was underage. The Duke of York and the palace have vehemently affirmed Giuffre’s claims.
Several years ago, Giuffre told the Mail on Sunday that Epstein loaned her out to the prince and other far-famed friends for gender, and claimed that she had to report back with possible intimidation textile for Epstein.( She said Andrew liked to suck her toes ).
During her first suspect rendezvous with the prince, Giuffre claimed that Maxwell” invited Andrew how old-fashioned he concluded I was and he suspected 17 and they all kind of chortled about it and Ghislaine made a joke that I was getting too old for Jeffrey. She said,’ He’ll soon have to trade her in .'”
Giuffre also said Andrew participated in an debauchery with underage girlfriends on Epstein’s so-called ” pedophile island .”( Andrew and Buckingham palace deny these declares .)
A 2001 picture of Andrew, with his arm around Giuffre’s waist, surfaced alongside her bombshell tale a couple of years ago. In 2007, another young woman appointed Johanna Sjoberg told The Daily Mail that Andrew had floundered her at “states parties ” at Epstein’s mansion.
Sjoberg repeated those pretensions in a videotaped deposition included in the just-unsealed court substantiates. She was indicated that she sat on Prince Andrew &# x27; s sip at Epstein &# x27; s East 71 st Street palace, and that Andrew stroked her breast after exploiting a marionette to show what he would do on Giuffre &# x27; s body( with the puppet stroking Giuffre &# x27; s breast ).
Andrew, known as” Randy Andy” in the British press for his penchant for partying, was formerly disavowed Sjoberg’s claims.
In the deposition, Sjoberg said that Maxwell approached her in the winter of 2001 on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic College, offering a enterprise of refuting telephones, which she did on her first visit to Epstein’s Palm Beach residence. On the second visit, she met a young woman( whom The Daily Beast is not mention ), who made Sjoberg up to Epstein’s bedroom. They both massaged Epstein. When he got up from table, she says, the other young woman got on the table naked and demo Sjoberg” moves that he[ Epstein] liked .” Sjoberg says she was then massaged by Epstein and the young woman, nude.
Sjoberg says Maxwell referred to the young woman as her slave.
Maxwell’s racket, Sjoberg said, was ” to find other girls that would perform massages for him and herself .”
Epstein too supposedly told Sjoberg” he needed to have three orgasms a day. It was biological, like eating .”
In another deposition included in the unsealed documents, Tony Figueroa, Epstein &# x27; s onetime bodyguard, testified that Giuffre told him about threesomes with herself, Maxwell, and Epstein involving “strap-ons,” and claimed that Epstein wanted Giuffre to have sex with Prince Andrew, Maxwell, and “all the other girls.”
Maxwell &# x27; s solicitors hit back hard-bitten at Giuffre &# x27; s claims in the unsealed papers, covering her as a disturbed young lady with a biography of substance abuse. They attacked her on being corrected on the year she started working at Mar-a-Lago, and announced on onetime boyfriends who said they didn &# x27; t retain Giuffre mentioning Maxwell to them( although at least one used to say she speaking about generating rubs to “Jeff” ). Maxwell &# x27; s team also noted that Giuffre received fund for her fibs that appeared in the British press, and alleged her of trying to embellish her declarations.
