Ghislaine Maxwell loses bid to name Jeffrey Epstein victims

Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and death were one of the biggest news stories to come out of 2019. Here's what we know

Ghislaine Maxwell fought desperately Thursday to block publication of documents about Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking scheme.

Dozens of new documents related to Ghislaine Maxwell's dealings with Jeffrey Epstein were publicly released on Thursday, as the British socialite defends herself against criminal charges she aided the late financier's sexual abuse of girls. The stakes are much higher now.

They wrote that in light of her federal prosecution, any revelations from the unsealed documents "will forever let the cat out of the bag".

They included a deposition in which Giuffre described the alleged abuse, and also answered questions about errors she'd made previously in telling her story, including originally telling a court she was 15 when she met Epstein, when records showed she was at least a year older.

Epstein sent the email a day after Maxwell said she would appreciate it if another woman, identified by a single name only, "would come out and say she was your g'friend - I think she was from end 99 to 2002".

The accused madam succeeded in winning a brief delay until Monday of publication of her depositions, which are cited in her indictment. Maxwell's trial is scheduled for next July.

"But, despite Ms. Maxwell's contention that she could not address the effect of those events in her objections because they occurred after the close of briefing, this is plowed ground".

Shortly before the email, Virginia Roberts Giuffre had accused Maxwell of procuring young girls to have sex with Epstein.

Ms Maxwell, 58, has pleaded not guilty to helping Mr Epstein recruit and eventually abuse three girls from 1994 to 1997, and committing perjury by denying her involvement under oath.

She had not been seen in public since Epstein, her longtime associate, was arrested on sex trafficking charges past year.

When she asked Epstein about why Clinton was there, she said Epstein told her that Clinton owed him a favor.

Other documents released Thursday include flight logs from Epstein's private jets, police reports from Palm Beach, Florida, where Epstein had a home, among other documents. Prosecutors also said that in some cases she "participated in the sexual abuse of minor victims".

Unsealed documents contain a July 25, 2015, email from Epstein to Maxwell saying, "You have done nothing wrong and i woudl [sic] urge you to start acting like it".

She was denied bail and is being held in a Brooklyn jail after the judge overseeing her criminal case called her a flight risk.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre has claimed both Maxwell and Epstein pressured her into having sex with numerous rich or notable men, including Britain's Prince Andrew, and former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz.

U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska upheld the documents' release during a hearing Wednesday despite protests from Maxwell's lawyer, Ty Gee, she had been the victim of a "perjury trap" during the lawsuit.

"Ms. Maxwell's two deposition transcripts were designated "Confidential" and subject to the protection of the protective order", Gee said in his filing.
