I go into the kitchen and I hear a conversation start. Very muffled, I could not hear any particulars about the conversation whatsoever. My wife and I are in the kitchen preparing the evening meal. Eva brings the young girl into the kitchen. In the kitchen, there is an island with three barstools. Eva instructs the young girl to sit to the furthest barstool on the right. Q: Describe for me what the girl looked like, including her demeanor and anything else you remember about her when she walks into the kitchen. A: Very attractive, beautiful young girl. Makeup, very put together, casual dress.

But we could tell that she was very nervous. Q: What do you mean by distraught and shaking, what do you mean by that?

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz

“Q: Sorry, I have to ask, but did you ever have sex with Alan Dershowitz in the back of a limousine with Virginia and Jeffrey present? A: Absolutely not. Q: Do you know who Alan Dershowitz is? A: I do. Q: You would remember – A: I would remember that.” (Attachment 1327-29, Johanna Sjoberg’s deposition)

Dershowitz, who touted Epstein as a close friend, flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet 15 times from 1996 through 2006, which was during the time period that Jeffrey was actively assaulting a number of minor children. Twice Dershowitz flew with Sarah Kellen, who was Defendant’s right hand recruiter of these underage girls.” (1328-41, Response in Opposition to Motion to Intervene)

“Ms. Giuffre came to the house when Dershowitz was there… And, importantly, Dershowitz got massages while he was visiting Epstein’s home… the private, upstairs room where Dershowitz got his ‘massages’ was the room where Defendant Maxwell had ‘a laundry basket . . . full of those toys.’” (1328-41, Response in Opposition to Motion to Intervene)

Dershowitz showed up on flight logs for Epstein’s private jet, including a flight with an (apparently young) woman named ‘Tatiana’ who did not appear to serve any business purpose for Epstein.” (Attachment 1330-1, statement from Paul Cassell, Giuffre’s lawyer)

Dershowitz had indicated in 2003 that he was an extremely close friend of Epstein – indeed, that the only person outside his immediately family with whom he shared drafts of his books was Epstein.” (Attachment 1330-1, statement from Paul Cassell, Giuffre’s lawyer)

“Attempts had been made to depose Dershowitz or otherwise obtain information from him about his knowledge of Epstein’s sexual abuse in 2009, 2011, 2013, and January 2015, and he had avoided all those efforts.” (Attachment 1330-1)

“I never had sexual contact with Ms. Giuffre of any kind, and, to my knowledge, I never even met her until her deposition in 2016. By swearing to this, I am deliberately exposing myself to a perjury prosecution and disbarment if I am not telling the truth… It is inescapably clear that one of us is lying under oath. I know it is not me.” (Attachment 1330-4, Dershowitz’s sworn statement)

“Documents to be produced pursuant to this subpoena … All email from your server containing the term ‘Dershowitz’ or ‘dershowitz.’ … All documents containing the term ‘Dershowitz’ or ‘dershowitz.’” (Attachment 1328-28, subpoena to TerraMar Project, Maxwell’s nonprofit)

Alan’s taste for the young and beautiful was a bias for a blooming business relationship between him and Jeffrey.” (Attachment 1328-6, Dershowitz’s motion for permissive intervention and unsealing of judicial documents in which a draft of Giuffre’s unpublished tell-all memoir was cited)

“Your are not guilty and must follow Dershowtiz line. He is a leading lawyer and he hasn’t followed the don’t say anything for fear of litigation. He has rightly called YR bluff and shouted his innocence. You have to stand up and deny the allegations or be branded guilty by association and that may lead to other investigations and worse … Speak to Deshowitz. Don’t allay yourself to JE as that is not the way to go.” (Attachment 1330-22, email from attorney Philip Barden to Maxwell)

Dr. Lisa Svensson (Swedish diplomat and former Director for Oceans of UN Environment)

“i had Iisa svenson the swedish ocean ambassador yesteady she said no one on her ocean panel takes this stuff seriously and you would be welcoe to the ocean conferenec water conference etc.” (Attachment 1330-5, email from Jeffrey Epstein to Ghislaine Maxwell)

Tangent

During her deposition, Johanna Sjoberg said that she took a photo while sat on the lap of Prince Andrew, who put his hand on her breast while a “puppet” version of the British royal, placed on Giuffre’s lap, had its hand placed on Giuffre’s breast.

When Maxwell was asked about the incident, she refused to answer more questions until they described the puppet in detail. “There was a puppet — not a puppet — there was a — I don’t know how would you describe it really, I don’t know how would you describe it. Not a puppet, I don’t know how you would describe it.

A caricature of Prince Andrew that was in Jeffrey’s home,” Maxwell said. As with many of the details from Giuffre and Sjoberg’s testimonies, Maxwell insisted she could not “recollect” taking the photo with the puppet. “I recollect the puppet but I don’t recollect anything around the puppet.” (Attachment 1327-27, Maxwell’s deposition)

Contra

In a motion for leave attached in the court documents released Friday, Maxwell denied plaintiffs’ claims she and Epstein “had threesomes with multiple different girls whose names she can’t even remember,” though she did admit to a “few occasions” of sexual interactions in Palm Beach in the late ‘90s with Epstein and “women who were the same age” as her. (Attachment 1328-35, Defendant’s Motion for Leave to file a Sur-Reply)

Chief Critic

All mentioned have denied wrongdoing in their ties to Epstein that range from personal to professional connections with the late convicted sex offender. Prince Andrew has denied reports about maintaining a close relationship with Maxwell in addition to denying Giuffre’s allegations of abuse. Dershowitz, who welcomed the unsealing of the documents, has said that their release will prove “he did nothing wrong.”

The lawyer has also said individuals’ ties to Epstein doesn’t mean they’re guilty of anything beyond “having shown bad judgment.” Clinton, whose name is mentioned several times throughout the documents, has strongly denied having any information or knowledge of Epstein’s crimes. Although Clinton has publicly acknowledged a prior connection to Epstein, the former president has maintained that he cut ties with Epstein before the financier was under investigation and denied ever visiting his island.

Key Background

Friday’s tranche of documents marks the third day in a row highly anticipated records were unsealed as part of a defamation lawsuit between Giuffre and Maxwell, the latter of whom was accused of “public ridicule, contempt and disgrace” all allegedly used to discredit Giuffre’s sexual abuse claims about Epstein.

The first set of documents mentioned names like magician David Copperfield and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson in addition to Clinton, Prince Andrew and Dershowitz. Epstein accuser Sjoberg recalled a comment from Epstein, in which the disgraced financier said Clinton “likes them young,” referring to girls.

The second round of names associated with Epstein was unsealed Thursday and included several of the names mentioned in the first set. In one attachment, an email sent by Giuffre to journalist and friend Sharon Churcher alleged Clinton pressured Vanity Fair to not write sex-trafficking articles about Epstein. Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair from 1992 to 2017, told CNN the incident “categorically did not happen.”

The second set of documents also revealed a request made by Giuffre for “All photos of Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.” The lawsuit between Giuffre and Maxwell, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence after being convicted of multiple federal sex trafficking charges, was settled in 2017.
