Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claimed that convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and socialite Ghislaine Maxwell kept her as a sex slave, said that the two trafficked her to multiple high-powered people, including multiple Democrats.
A partial transcript of a September 2016 deposition in a lawsuit was included in hundreds of pages of documents placed in a public file by a federal appeals court in New York.
“The papers included affidavits and depositions of key witnesses in a lawsuit the now-33-year-old woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, filed against Epstein and his associate, Ghislane Maxwell in 2015,” reported by Fox News
Over 2,000 pages of documents made public by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals pertained to a since-settled lawsuit against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers.
Fox News noted that two of the individuals listed were “prominent Democratic politicians — former Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton Cabinet official Bill Richardson.”
The court records contain graphic allegations against Epstein, who is accused of trafficking young girls internationally to have sex with prominent people. They portray Epstein as a sex slave-driver with an insatiable appetite for underage girls.
Giuffre said that in that role she was “forced to have sex with …numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister.”
“My whole life revolved around just pleasing these men and keeping Ghislaine and Jeffrey happy,” Giuffre said. “Their whole entire lives revolved around sex.”
Giuffre, who had worked at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, said that she never saw Epstein and Trump together and that “she never had sex with Trump or flirted with him,” CNBC reported. CNBC added that Trump flight records showed Trump flew on Epstein’s plane once “in January 1997, from a Palm Beach, Florida, airport to Newark, New Jersey.”
Charges against Epstein in federal court in Manhattan accuse him of recruiting and abusing dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s.
At the time of Epstein’s arrest, prosecutors said they found a trove of pictures of nude and seminude young women and girls at his $77 million Manhattan mansion. They also said additional victims have come forward since Epstein’s arrest.
Billionaire U.S. financier Epstein was arrested in New York on July 6 on charges of sex trafficking. He had been convicted on the same charges back in 2008. However, through a secret agreement with the federal government at the time, he compensated the victims and significantly reduced his sentence.
