Jeffrey Epstein Sent Girl to Governor and Senator for Sex, She Testified

Jeffrey Epstein Sent Girl to Governor and Senator for Sex, She Testified(Bloomberg) — Jeffrey Epstein and a friend sent an underage girl to have sex with former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, former U.S. Senator George Mitchell and asset manager Glenn Dubin, she testified in court documents that were made public Friday — allegations the three deny.Virginia Giuffre, now an adult, says she was also sent to modeling executive Jean Luc Brunel and the late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, according to parts of a 2016 deposition she gave. The testimony by Giuffre, who claims she was a “sex slave” for Epstein from 2000 to 2002, expands on her previous allegations, in court filings and tabloids, that she was forced to have sex with the U.K.’s Prince Andrew and Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz. Both men have strenuously denied those allegations.Epstein, a convicted sex offender, faces new federal criminal charges of sexually trafficking minors. None of the other men were defendants in the settled lawsuit, and they haven’t been accused by authorities. But their appearance in the newly public papers adds to the list of those who could be tarnished by their apparent association with him.Richardson, in a statement, said he’d never met Giuffre, called the allegations "completely false" and said that during his limited interactions with Epstein he’d never seen him in the presence of underage girls.Mitchell said the allegation in the released documents is false. In a statement, he said he never met, spoke with or had contact with Giuffre, or knew of or suspected that Epstein had inappropriate conduct with underage girls.Dubin and his wife, Eva, called the allegations "demonstrably false and defamatory." In an emailed statement, a spokeswoman added: “The Dubins have flight records and other evidence that definitively disprove that any such events occurred."Brunel couldn’t be reached for comment. A person answering the phones at his modeling agency declined to connect a Bloomberg reporter with him.In her 2015 civil lawsuit, Giuffre, a Floridian, claimed Epstein sexually abused her for two years starting in 2000, when she was 16. She said she was recruited by Epstein’s friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who she says participated in the abuse. Giuffre claimed that Maxwell, daughter of the late British publisher Robert Maxwell, defamed her by publicly calling her a liar.That case settled, with a judge sealing about 2,000 pages of documents. The appeals court on Friday upheld its previous order to unseal those documents. Some that were made public immediately included emails, photographs and flight logs. Others will undergo further court review to determine what else can be released.The Giuffre deposition, parts of which were attached as exhibits to court filings, includes her testimony responding to newspaper articles about her experience — outlining how she said she had been hired by Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort before Maxwell wooed her to work as a masseuse for Epstein. After that, Giuffre testified, Maxwell and Epstein began farming her out to powerful men.In one part of Giuffre’s testimony, Maxwell’s attorney asked her to "name the other politically connected and financially powerful people that Ghislaine Maxwell told you to go have sex with.""They instructed me to go to George Mitchell, Jean Luc Brunel, Bill Richardson, another prince that I don’t know his name," she said. "A guy that owns a hotel, a really large hotel chain, I can’t remember which hotel it was."She continued: "There was, you know, another foreign president, I can’t remember his name," she said. "There’s a whole bunch of them that I just — it’s hard for me to remember all of them."Later in the deposition, Giuffre was asked about details of her alleged sexual encounter with Dubin."What words did Ghislaine Maxwell tell you to go have sex with Glenn Dubin?" Maxwell’s lawyer said."It was the same all the time, all right?" Giuffre responded. "They want me to go provide these men with a massage."For Richardson, Giuffre claimed, she was sent to New Mexico, according to the filing.Epstein served 13 months in jail a decade ago, much of it on work release, after pleading guilty to soliciting a minor. Giuffre has said she took legal action because she was upset by that deal and a federal non-prosecution agreement he secured around the same time.Epstein was arrested in early July and charged with trafficking teenage girls from 2002 to 2005. He has pleaded not guilty.Maxwell has long denied she was involved with Epstein’s alleged sexual abuse of underage girls. She had argued the documents from the civil case should be kept under seal because of the shocking nature of the allegations. Last month, her lawyers told the appeals court that the media’s “furious feeding frenzy” justified keeping the documents sealed and she asked for a rehearing by a full panel of the appeals court.Read More: Epstein’s Socialite Pal Maxwell Seeks to Keep Files Sealed\–With assistance from Neil Weinberg and Katherine Burton.To contact the reporters on this story: Erik Larson in New York at elarson4@bloomberg.net;Anders Melin in New York at amelin3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Jeffrey D Grocott at jgrocott2@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Jeffrey Epstein served with fresh court documents alleging rape of 15-year-old girl

Jeffrey Epstein served with fresh court documents alleging rape of 15-year-old girlDisgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein found out he was facing further legal peril last week, the day before he was found unconscious in his cell with neck injuries. Epstein, 66, was presented with court documents relating to accusations made by Jennifer Araoz, who claimed he raped her when she was 15. Miss Araoz, now 32, made her accusations on July 10 – shortly after Epstein was arrested by police on charges filed by New York prosecutors. She claimed that, in the autumn of 2002, when she had been visiting his New York home for a year, he raped her after she gave him a massage. Last week, on July 22, Qin Zhang, deputy sheriff, handed Epstein the documents in his cell in the Manhattan Correctional Center, where he is awaiting trial. Jeffrey Epstein awaiting his bail decision on July 15. The judge ultimately denied bail. Miss Araoz’s documents sought to depose Epstein, to learn the identity of the young woman who allegedly recruited her outside the Talent Unlimited High School and took part in his “grooming” of her “to be sexually assaulted by Epstein.” Miss Araoz has described the woman as a brunette in her 20s. Daniel Kaiser, Miss Araoz’s lawyer, said that Epstein or his lawyer will have to appear before a judge on August 27, to fight her wish to have him deposed and produce all evidence. Miss Araoz plans to sue both Epstein and the recruiter, Mr Kaiser said, but has to wait until August 14 under terms of the state Child Victims Act. The law, which Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York state, signed in February, lifted a statute of limitations that barred victims of childhood sexual abuse from suing their attackers more than three years after turning 18. The new law allows for criminal charges against sexual abusers of children to be filed until their victims turn 28 for felony cases. Jeffrey Epstein, 66, is facing up to 45 years in prison on charges of sex trafficking of minors It also allows for civil charges to be brought against their abusers – and institutions that enabled them – until they turn 55. Finally, it enacted a one-year, one-off period of grace, allowing all victims to seek civil action, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred. That period begins on August 14. The day after the court papers were served, Epstein – who’s being held without bail on conspiracy and child sex trafficking charges – was found nearly unconscious on the floor of his cell, law enforcement sources have said. Based on the appearance of the marks on his neck, investigators suspect he was choked by someone else, The New York Post reported, and they questioned his cellmate, a former policeman awaiting a death penalty trial in four drug-related killings.
