Judge Rules Explosive Ghislaine Maxwell Documents Be Unsealed

Revealing documents featuring details about Ghislaine Maxwell’s intimate life and Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs will be made available to the public in a number of days, as per the ruling of a judge. 

The 80 sets of papers, which 58-year-old Maxwell (Epstein’s former girlfriend) had hoped to remain a secret, include a 2016 testimony from her which she said contained ‘intrusive’ questions about her sex life.

The documents, which are reportedly hundreds of pages long, were ordered to be made public by Judge Loretta Preska in New York last Thursday after she said the people’s right to know was of higher importance than the defendant’s desire for privacy.

The papers will bring to light information about who traveled on Epstein’s private plane, known as the “Lolita Express.”

Former President Bill Clinton made a number of trips on the jet, even though he has denied being involved in the illegal activities.

The unsealed papers will also feature communications from 2015 made between Epstein and Maxwell after their alleged sex slave Virginia Roberts Giuffre accused them of trafficking her. She claims they forced her to have sex with Prince Andrew back in 2001 when she was only 17 years of age. The Prince has denied any involvement.

Giuffre says she and other victims were trafficked by the duo so ‘politically connected and financially powerful people’ could abuse them. The scheduled-for-public-access papers will potentially expose other famous names who will be facing extremely serious allegations as a result of the information they feature.

In addition, the papers will detail police calls-outs to Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida.

Maxwell’s attorney Laura Menninger told the DailyMail she intends to appeal their release over ‘grave concerns about our client’s ability to receive a fair trial.’

Maxwell was captured by police in Bedford, New Hampshire on July 2 and was charged with trafficking children, as well as perjury. She has reportedly groomed girls as young as 14 for Epstein to have sex with, watched him do so, and joined in the abuse at least once.

The French/British socialite denies any wrongdoing in the alleged offenses which are said to have taken place in the US and UK between 1994 and 1997.

Furthermore, she faces charges of perjury over allegations that she lied at her 2016 court hearing which forms the basis of the papers set for release. Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation after her alleged groomer came out with a strong denial of all allegations thrown against her. In turn, that led to a court hearing which saw sworn evidence given by Maxwell, Giuffre, and other alleged victims of Epstein.

Jeffrey Epstein, who is a convicted pedophile, allegedly committed suicide in a Manhattan prison last summer while awaiting trial on further sex trafficking offenses.
