Jeffrey Epstein Update: Read The Deposition That Ghislaine Maxwell Fought To Hide

Source: PBS NPR By:Bill Chappell

Ghislaine Maxwell's answers to questions about the sex-trafficking operation she allegedly ran with the late Jeffrey Epstein were made public Thursday, as a federal court released Maxwell's 2016 deposition. The transcript is more than 400 pages long, but it has been redacted to protect the privacy of some people it mentions.

The transcript is finally being unsealed after a back-and-forth legal battle between Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre, who has accused Maxwell, Epstein and others of sexually abusing her when she was a minor. Court documents allege that Maxwell procured young girls for the late Epstein to have sex with and that the pair also ordered girls and young women to have sex with rich and powerful men.

NPR is sifting through the transcript, which you can read here:

1. Let 'em sift. I'm not reading 400 pages, 395 of which will be boring recaps of stuff we know.

Ghislaine Maxwell Confirms Bill Clinton Was on Jeffrey Epstein's Plane in Unsealed Documents

Ghislaine Maxwell told a court Bill Clinton flew on Jeffrey Epstein's private plane in testimony unsealed today. The former president says he has never visited Epstein's private island.

British socialite Maxwell's seven hour depositions were released by a New York court in which she was asked about allegations she groomed girls for the pedophile.

The documents were part of a defamation case brought by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre in 2016 but now form part of the criminal trafficking case against Maxwell.

Epstein's ex-girlfriend accused Giuffre of lying about President Clinton visiting Little St James, the financier's private island.

4. I don't think Clinton ever disputed using Epstein's plane.

Epstein lent the plane for Clinton to use for Clinton Foundation travel, because the Clinton Foundation didn't have a plane of its own. That has never been in dispute.

Of course hindsight being 20-20, sure that sounds awful, but Epstein--much like Trump--was a celebrity whore who relished being around the rich and famous, and Bill Clinton was as powerful and famous as it came, so he glommed on to him. It is what it is.

Not really a story. In terms of optics, video of Trump partying alongside Epstein and his statement about how he "likes them young" plays much worse. Right now I don't see anything definitive to link either to actual sex trafficking.

Trump donated $100K to. Always include that.

11. +1000

Im really tired of the people still desirous of denigrating Hillary. Bill had already explained why he used the plane.

10. I'm not splitting hairs not am I an Epstein apologist;

I am sort of a word geek. Epstein was not a pedophile. Pedophiles prey on pre-pubescent children. Epstein waited until they were past that stage............
